This week's picks is brothers:
Conrad and Jeremiah Fisher from the Summer Series by Jenny Han

~ CONRAD ~

Conrad was the older one by a year and a half.  He was dark, dark, dark, dark.  Completely unattainable, unavailable.  He had a smirky kind of mouth, and I always found myself staring at it.  Smirky mouths make you want to kiss them, to smooth them out and kiss the smirkiness away.

Conrad is the older brother by a year and half.  He is the sexy, serious and slightly moody one out of the two.  He is the type of guy who tries to do what he thinks is best for others and rarely puts his feelings first. 

"Let's test it out," Conrad said, and he went and bought me another peach.  I ate that one in four bites.
"Was it as good?" he asked me.
"Yeah. It was."
Conrad reached out and wiped my chin with his shirt.  It was maybe the most intimate thing anyone had ever done to me.
I felt light headed, unsteady on my feet.
It was all in the way he looked at me, just those few seconds.

We kissed again, but it was different than the night before.  There was nothing slow or lazy about it.  The way he looked at me - urgent, wanting me, needing me.... it was like a drug.  It was want-want-want.  But it was me who was doing the wanting most of all.

He called out, "I still love you."
I froze.  And then slowly, I turned around to look at him.  "Don't say that ."
He took a step closer.  "I don't know if I'll ever get you out of my system, not completely.  I have...this feeling.  That you'll always be there.  Here." Conrad clawed at his heart and then dropped him hand.

~ JEREMIAH ~

Jeremiah, though - he was my friend.  He was nice to me.  He was the kind of boy who still hugged him mother, still wanted to hold her hand even when he was technically too old for it.  He wasn't embarrassed either. Jeremiah was too busy having fun to ever be embarrassed.

Jeremiah is the sweet one who brings you half a sub because he knows you were to busy to eat and leaves little love notes outside your door.

"I don't ever want to be without you.  Ever.  You are the only girl for me.  I've always know it. In this whole world, I will never love another girl the way I love you."

He kissed me, hard, and his skin was stubbly and rough against my cheek.  My first thought was, I guess he didn't have time to shave this morning, and then - I was kissing him back my fingers winding through his soft yellow hair and my eyes closed.  He kissed like he was drowning and I was air.  It was passionate, and desperate, and like nothing I have ever experienced before. 

We were dancing.  I had my arms around Jeremiah's neck and the music was pulsing around us.  I felt flushed and abuzz, from the dancing and the from the alcohol.  The room was packed with people, but when Jere looked at me, there was no one else.  Just me and him.

Have you read the Summer series?
Are you a Conrad or a Jeremiah girl?

Me, well as much as I love them both I am have always been more a Conrad fan.  Even though he drove me crazy with his moods there is something so sexy about him. 

Thanks to Missie for hosting this meme.

If you ever needed a new job, I bet you could get hired for being amazing at matching up literary characters with their beautiful real man counterparts. Seriously. You always make me want to read books just so I can imagine these guys as the characters. But, if you ever did get that job I bet you would need someone to babysit all those caged fictional characters you have to tend to. And I know just the girl for the job!

Alex (A Girl, Books, OtherThings) said...

I ended up on Camp Conrad because Jeremiah was just too whinny for me, and for what he does.

Loved the pics, I can see them as Conrad and Jeremiah :D

Book Passion for Life said...

Have I read the Summer series? No, but I'm gonna! Christ! Those two are hot. Om NOM! beautiful photos and gorgeous quotes. Well done Nic.

abbey said...

argghh Nic! I love your picks
I have to say i loved Jeremiah the most in the first two books but switched to conrad in the last one.
Those quotes are some of my favs as well and the pictures are awfully attractive as usual.
I'm still dumbfounded as to where you find these pictures.
I loved the part in book 3 when conrad read the letter from his mum that said she was happy she had seen him in love with belly. I had a few tears
and.. when Conrad confesses on the beach in that last quote i was holding my breath.
great great picks!

Miss Page-Turner said...

This post is perfect! You always pick incredible pictures to accompany the characters. Again I'm so Team Conrad:D That smirky quote is my favourite and it feels like a Summer series re-read is coming up in my holidays. Thanks for featuring my favourite bookish brothers:)

Jenny said...

Nic, have I mentioned to you how good you are at picking book boyfriends? Your taste is ridiculously amazing, I love those pictures and those quotes are to die for. This is one series I've been meaning to read but it just seems like I never get to it. I seriously need to make time though:)

Belle said...

Beautiful, both of them! I haven't read this series, yet another one to add to the wishlist! Thanks for the swoons :D

Missie said...

OMG! No wonder Belly couldn't chose between them.

They both sound completely devoted to her. Oh Wow! I haven't felt a rush to read this series, but now I want to. I want to know who she picks!

Savannah said...

*Clears throat* Um wow, some bots boys you got there. I now know why Belly had such a hard time. Hell I want them both!

Savannah said...

*Hot, sorry about that. LOL

Kristin said...

I have'nt read this series. They're both swoon worthy though!!

Lisa said...

I brought the first book a couple of months ago but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I've heard good things about it. I never realized there were two hotties in the series. I'm going to have to move it up in my TBR pile.

Small Review said...

Wow, I don't really think these books are for me, but those guys certainly are! Very nice picks this week :)

Okay. I'm totally reading this book. The Fisher brothers are HOT! I'm torn. Well, why choose only one when you can have TWO fish. Hahaha. Nice blog. And I'm a new follower!:)

Jeremiah's_Girl312 said...

Now that I can visualize what Jeremiah and Conrad look like, I SO need to reread the series. Damn. Just finished a book report on the second book and now, I'm daydreaming of myself in Belly's place, kissing Jeremiah, being "Belly flopped" into the pool, tasting beer for the first time.

By looking at these pictures, me, personally would prefer Jeremiah over Conrad not just for his looks but also his personality. If only I could meet these characters. *Sigh*<3

I've always been a Conrad girl. Maybe because I have a boy like Conrad in my life. Hard to understand his emotions at times but I sure love him to death.
