My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie over at The Unread Reader! Go check it out now! I want to hear all about your book boyfriend!
Hello to the ladies who participate in My Book Boyfriend. This is my first time taking part! I have to say... this is one of the best meme's I've ever seen. One of my favourite past times is to fan myself while obsessing over a current fictional boyfriend. So, let me begin...
My book lover of the
century week is Zachary from the Shade series. Okay, he may have made a real ass out of himself in Shift, but that's okay. I can forgive him. After all, didn't he say, "Aura, I'm really patient, but I'm not a bloody saint." ? That boy definitely would never have to be a bloody saint around me. And did you catch that 'bloody'?

"I promise I'll never tell."
"Don't promise that," he said in an ultraserious voice. "If they try to hurt you and the only way to protect yourself is to tell them what you know about me, then you tell them. Straight off, okay?"
"I will possess your heart."
Heat flared along the back of my neck. "What did you say?"
"My favorite song. 'I Will Possess Your Heart.'"
"By Death Cab for Cutie?"
He snorted. "No, the little known T.I. Hip-hop remix. Yes, Death Cab for Cutie."
... "Why? What's wrong with it?"
"Nothing, but it doesn't seem to fit you. It's kind of a sad song."
"No it's pure confident. It's not 'I want' or 'I need', none of that crap." He slipped his hand over mine. "It's 'I will.'"
A nervous laugh bubbled up. "You will, huh?"
His fingers brushed my cheek, then slid into my hair. "I will."

- He snorts.
- He can scare away ghosts.
- He will possess
