My Book Boyfriend #29 - Jack Pallas

Tuesday, September 6, 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:
Jack Pallas 

He made quite an impression on her the first time he and his partner walked into her office.  Cameron suspected nearly everyone who meet Jack Pallas had the same reaction: with predatory brown eyes, nearly black hair, and dark facial scruff, he looked like the kind of guy that women-and-men-should avoid in dark alleys. 


Described as "tall, dark and scowling".  Jack Pallas, a FBI agent, ticks all the boxes for me.  He is strong, witty, stubborn, gorgeous, protective, loyal, sexy, loves to read and rides a motorbike.  YUM!

"We should go," Jack finally said.  He needed to get out of that office before he did something they both regretted.
She nodded, turned back, and unlocked the deadbolt.  She grabbed the doorknob....then stopped.
Jack waited for her to open the door.  When she didn't he reached around her, placing his hand over hers.  "Cameron, we have to get out of here," he said in a guttural voice.
"I know."
Still, neither of them moved.  Jack took his hand off hers and moved it to the deadbolt.
He knew he shouldn't.
But he locked the door anyway.
He heard Cameron inhale unsteadily.  Before he could give it a second thought, he brushed her long hair off her shoulder and bent his head to kiss her collarbone.

When she'd finished, Jack said nothing.  A moment passed and....
He still said nothing.
Then he fixed his gaze on her and stalked across the room.
Cameron braced herself.  With that kind of look in his eyes, he was either going to kill her or--
He kissed her.  Hot, demanding sweeps of his tongue against hers.  When he dragged his mouth away they were both out of breath.

She caught the glint in his eyes and reached for him just as his mouth came down on hers.
She expected Jack's kiss to be hard, angry, even but instead it was just....wicked.

Love all the smoldering tension between Jack and Cameron I am surprise the book didn't burst into flames as hot as these scenes are. Great quotes and I love Gandy's predatory eyes and dark scowl. Wishing that that something "wicked" this way cometh!

Julie James writes such yummy male characters that you can't help but fall in love with. I also loved FBI agent Nick in A Lot Like Love he was equally hot. How utterly gorgeous is David Gandy?

I love Jack Pallas and I like the guy of your choice. "Something about you" was a great read and my favorite quote from the book describing Jack is "More like a chocolate molten lava cake. A dessert so sinful, so luscious, so filled with inner heat it made a girl want to lick each and every crumb right off the plate. That was Jack Pallas."
