Top Ten of 2012: Best Book Boyfriends


This event is hosted by Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic, Rachel from Fiktshun, Jaime from Two Chicks on Books and Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads. Today we are talking Book Boyfriends! OMG this was hard. There are just so many swoon worthy candidates that I was having a hard time choosing. Like all my other lists, they aren't in any particular order. I am just doing the book cover for the book or series they are from instead of trying to find/make Team Whoever badges. I'm not super good at that stuff so it would take me forever.




 Daemon Black from the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout - Okay, so I didn't use the book cover for this one, but I still had this fabulous badge from when he was in the YA Crush Tourney and I had to use it. He started off as a tool in Obsidian, but he has more than proved himself as the series has gone on. And in Opal!! OMG he totally melts my heart over and over again!




Aiden St. Delphi from the Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout - He has had my heart from the very beginning and he just proves time and time again how amazing he is!! He is so sweet and will do anything in the world for Alex!!




Jack from Everneath by Brodi Ashton - If you haven't read this I don't really want to say much, but just how devastated he was and what he is willing to do to keep her makes my heart flutter. He is too good to be true!! I suppose that's what is so appealing. :)




Gavin from the Just Breathe series by Kendall Grey - He's a rock star, super hot, and super sweet. He's terribly broken, but is coming around and he will do anything for Zoe. Yes, he effs up more than a few times, but he is just yummy and awesome!!




Tucker from the Unearthly series by Cynthia Hand - I am Team Tucker all the way. No matter what anyone says you can't change my mind. He is one sexy cowboy and he knows how to have fun. He doesn't need any special talents to be incredibly irresistible. He is amazing just how he is.




Finn from Inbetween by Tara Fuller - Talk about super sweet!!! Finn has literally been waiting for Emma for a long long time. He knows he can't be with her, but he can't stay away. He will do anything he can just to be with her. He is the broken, but sweet and charming type. I am totally a sucker for the broken guys that need some good TLC and love to be fixed.




Noah from Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry - Now talk about broken guys!! Noah is totally broken, but underneath all of that he is incredible. His younger brothers are his world and he will do anything to make sure they are safe and happy. He wants to make sure they have the best life they can. The chemistry between him and Echo is amazing, but really, what makes him desirable is how dedicated he is to his family and their future.




Sam from Flawed by Kate Avelynn - As hard and heart breaking as this book is, Sam's love for Sarah is the bright light in the darkness!! It makes your heart ache. It's beautiful, but so tragic. The love that Sam and Sarah share makes and otherwise unbearably harsh book a little easier to read.




Sawyer from The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines - Dude, I thought I loved Beau (Which I totally do), but OMG Sawyer surprised me in this one. Holy hotness. I was not expecting that out of Sawyer who seemed so reserved and perfect. He was on fire in this book and I couldn't get enough of him.




Tod from the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent - Dude, Tod is just freaking awesome. The things he will do and go through for Kaylee!! I love Tod. I don't want to go into all the reasons, but really, in my opinion he can do no wrong. He is good down to the core.











There are a few honorable mentions that I have to add:

Adam from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Luke from Beg for Mercy/Waiting for Mercy by Shannon Dermott
Sam from Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
Jace from The Mortal Instruments series (He wasn't fab in City of Lost Souls, so he didn't make the top, but he's still awesome so he needed to be mentioned.)
Chase from The Protectors series by M.R. Merrick
Logan from The Witch Avenue series by Karice Bolton.

I would love to know who your fave book boyfriends are. If you did a post leave me the link, if not let me know in the comments.

  1. Daemon! YES YES YES! I freaking loved him in Obsidian so damn much, and I loved him in Onyx too (but Katy made me want to scratch her eyes out in that one!) Great list, I need to read a few of the books on the list.

    1. Okay, so this list might not be in any particular order, but Daemon is definitely my #1!! That's why he got his own pic and not a book cover. ;)

    2. Loved Daemon and Aiden! They are definately my favorites! Loved both series! Aiden is my #1 and Daemon my #2!I do love Jace as well The Mortal Instrument Series!Dimitri from Vampire Academy is also definately on my list as well! I also like Octavon from the Crystor Series and Malachi from the bok Sanctum! Definate must reads and guys that will make your heart skip a beat!

  2. Oh, the awesomeness! I totally loved Jack from Everneath, his dedication to getting Nikki back was like the sweetest thing ever! I'm glad to see that there are Jack lovers out there, it seems as if everyone is on Team Cole for this series. And Tucker from Hallowed is so sweet. <3 I actually didn't really like him at the end of Unearthly, but he grew on me and I love him so much. Although, I'm pretty sure Clara is going to end up with Christian. And while Jace did make some dumb decisions in COLS, I did love him because of them. His flaws make him so much better, and I think he redeemed himself in the end.

    Fantastic picks, Amy! I really do need to pick up a few of the books on your list, like Half-Blood. Hopefully it'll happen in 2013!

    1. Yeah, and the stuff in CoLS with Jace isn't really his fault, so that's why even though he wasn't really the Jace I adore, I know he's still in there. And NO!!! Don't say Clara will end up with Christian! I won't believe it!! TEAM TUCKER FTW!!!

  3. TUCKER, TOD, Noah, and Daemon! I really need to read Everneath and the Covenant series. I put the Covenant series off because I hate love triangles and I see such a split between Aiden and Seth. Love Adam and Warner from Shatter Me!
    My Top 10

    1. Jen! I honestly think you will love the covenant series. I only for just a slight moment ever questioned if Seth would be good, but just briefly. Team Aiden forever!!! Adam from Shatter Me almost made my list. I was going to do some honorable mentions, but decided against it.

      Delete
    2. Umm okay, I'm a dork! I totally did do honorable mentions haha!! I scheduled this post a while ago so I forgot and I didn't re-read my post, just my comments. Lol!!!

      Delete
  4. Ah! I'm not at all surprised that you are a Tucker fan! I was a Tucker fan until I read Hallowed. Now I'm Team Christian.!!! And I was Team Seth until Deity. I'm still struggling with that one.

    Replies
    1. Haha!! I'm still Team Tucker even after Hallowed. He is just so real and awesome!! I get why Christian is good for Clara, but I would rather have something true and real then something that's easy and expected. ;) Ahhh how can you still be struggling with Seth after Deity!!! He's crazy!!! Did you read Elixir yet? After Elixir I kind of hate Seth with every fiber of my being!!

  5. Yay for Gavin, Noah and Sam! I loved them too. As for the rest, I haven't read the books yet, so I can't say that I love them!
    I read Everneath, but I can't remember Jack at all. :O
    I might have to read the book again before Everbound comes out!
    Great list, Amy! :)

  11. Just wanted to say that I think your blog is amazing! I've had a little nose around, forgive me! But it's just lovely! I hope that my blog looks as professional one day :P

    On a related note, I haven't yet read Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout, but Daemon Black looks like an interesting *cough, HOT, cough* character!

    I read Pushing the Limits and loved Noah!

    Star :P

  14. Ahh..JLA. She does write some fabulous men. Aiden BARELY edges out Daemon for me. Barely. And Christian deserves a fair shot. I would add Perry from Under the Never Sky as one of my tops too.

  15. I kind of hated Sawyer in The Vincent Boys and he is the reason I have not yet read Vincent Brothers. Maybe I should, huh? I just thought he was a snobby jerk ~ not the case??

    1. Not the case at all!! He is fantastic!!

    1. Haha!!! I have been told that I might switch to team Warner after reading Unravel Me. I like Cash, I just think Finn is awesome!! I don't dislike Cole, just at the moment I think he is manipulative. I am reading Neverfall right now and I am warming up to him. We shall see once I read Everbound.
