My Book Boyfriend #28 - Alex

Wednesday, August 24, 2011


My Book Boyfriend is by the awesome blogger Missie at The Unread Reader.   What is My Book Boyfriend you might ask.  Well it is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush including stats, a picture of what you imagine he looks like and some quotes from him that make you swoon.  If you are interested in participating please check out Missie blog The Unread Reader.  

This week's pick is:

He was so close I would only have had to move my face an inch or two forwards to press my lips against his neck.  I resisted the urge to trace the shadow of stubble along his jawline to the hollow of his chin.  His dark blonde hair had been recently crew-cut - I could tell by the thin white line that traced his hairline at the nape of his neck, which stood out against his tan.  There was a crease by his eyes that looked suspiciously like the beginning of a laughter line.


Alex is 21 years old, works for a special division of the military, owns a motorcycle and is HOT. 

As though he sensed me studying him, Alex turned then walked around to my side of the car.  He put his arms around me and I sank my head against his chest, feeling some of the anxiety immediately fade away.  He lifted me up and rested me on the bonnet of the car and we stayed like that for a while, me cocooned in his arms with the sun slowly warming us.

"Are you OK? Did they hurt you?"
I shook my head and clutched at this hands.  "No, no, I'm fine.  Alex, I need to --"
I couldn't say another word because his mouth was on mine again and lights were dancing in my head.

"Happy Birthday," I replied, sitting up.  The room spun a little as I did so, Alex's bare chest was like a flashing billboard in Time Square.  My eyes were drawn back to it again and again, before my gaze fixed on the shallow dips on either side of his hips that were swallowed up by the waistline of his shorts.  It was all I could do not to trace the shadows with the tips of my fingers.
He grinned at me a little sheepishly, setting the tea down by my side.

(My Alex is played by Jensen Ackles from Supernatural.  A show I have never watched before but do know that there is two hot guys in it)

What do you think of Alex?

Stayed tuned for my review later this week of Hunting Lila.

Thanks to Missie for hosting this meme!

What are you trying to do to me?! *moans in despair* You pick the latest HOT guy in YA and put his personality in Jensen's body. That's just an overload of sexy. I don't think I can handle it.

Nic, I actually did know there were 2 got guys in that show. LOL! I don't really watch it, but the commercials make me swoon! That first picture is amazing. I just want to stare and STARE and STARE. It's like his eyes are hypnotizing me, they are just this side of GORGEOUS. I'm serious, I just keep scrolling up and staring at them. They feel kind of like a pool of sexy water. Don't mind me, I'm going to be spending the day at the top of this post. *le sigh*

Oh Girl! Jensen Ackles is the hottest and I am a Supernatural Fan - my blog has some lovely pictures of The Winchestor Brothers!
He has the most wonderful kissable lips in the world, doesn't he? If you watched the show you'd think he was 100X hotter! LOL!

Great choice but you can't have him---He's mine, all mine---Muwaaahhaaa!
