My Book Boyfriend {#1}

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'? He's a damn Scotsman. Yes, please! 
"I suppressed another shiver - I did not want Zachary taking off any more clothes on my account."

Aura, what? LET HIM TAKE IT ALL OFF, crazy!

"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?" 
"Promise me." 
"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 can talk ultraserious. 
  • He snorts. 
  • He can scare away ghosts. 
  • He will possess Aura's my heart!


  1. LIZA!!!!! You couldn't have picked a better boyfriend! I love Zachary so much. So much that I'm willing to share him with you. You're welcome ;-) Those quotes make me want to read this series all over again. I cannot wait for Shine!

  2. Zachary must be everyone's book boyfriend, so dreamy! And those quotes, some of the best! Great choice :0)

    Sarah @ The Book Life

  3. LIZA! How fun are you?!! So glad you are participating this week because I love this post. Isn't it the best to swoon over book hotties?

    And seriously, she didn't want him taking off more of his clothes? *blinks*

    ummm.. that wouldn't be a problem over here. ;)

    I haven't read this book yet, but I need too! Team Kilt!!

  4. Oh my gosh, I think you made me fall in love with the guy and I haven't read the book. (drat my massive pile to read, it keeps getting bigger. Only 30 more books before I get to this) xD

    I would have to saw Patch (hush hush), Sam( shiver), Edward cullen and Zed from Finding Sky.

  5. Sounds perfect! Another one to add to the TBR pile!!

  6. At this point, I feel like I'm the last person EVER to read these books! And I have BOTH of them!

  7. @Jenny Why thank you! Apparently it appears we both have amazing taste in boy toys! I know! I really want to re-read both books. I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT ONE!

    @Sarah He's just THAT amazing, I think, Sarah! :D

    @Missie It is the best! And thank you for hosting such a wonderful meme! Loooove it! I KNOW! That girl...!

    @evermore1girl Ohhh, I totally and completely reccommend this series! It's A-MAZING! Zach was in close competition with Patch and Sam! I haven't read Finding Sky, but I'm definitely going to check it out on GR now! :)

    @Bookish Brunette YOU MUST READ THIS SERIES! Loooove it! :) I know how you feel though, I'm often the last to read a lot of series! Sometimes it's because I like waiting until they're all out or almost all out! :) I hate waiting!

    Thank you all for commenting! <3

  8. Ashley isn't the last... I am! And I have been wanting to read this series for a bit now!

    Oh I laughed so much when you said fool girl! I so agree! Take it off boy!!!!! :D Such a great choice and LOVE the quotes!

  9. Seriously, no one should ever stop hot boys from taking off ALL their clothes! o_o I think Aura needs to be hit over the head a bit. And, SCOTSMAN! I'm in love. *gazes dreamily*

    I've never read this series, but it seems like a good one. Maybe I'll finally give it the chance it deserves.

  10. Aura doesn't deserve him if she prevents him from unclothing himself. Do over!

  11. Ugh! I've not read EITHER of the shade series books, I feel so left behind! I am so getting on it tomorrow! Off to Solonian for me!

  12. I haven't read this series - apparently I'm missing out! Adding it to my wishlist! :)

  13. hey! i'm a follower here! i'm spreading the word about Teen Shiver, a new group of YA authors that have combined together! stop by the Teen Shiver blog and follow us?? :)


  14. What a fun meme!! Maybe I should do it too next time around! :D Love the quotes!

  15. Ummmm can he possess my heart, too? I'll share. Please? Good Lord. I must now read this book.

  16. @Melissa Go forth and read this series! It's so good! Thank you! :D

    @Jen I know, right! Some girls!! You should definitely read it - it's turned into one of my favourite series EVER!

  21. I should really read the Shade Series given the rave reviews and the hunky Zach character. "I suppressed another shiver - I did not want Zachary taking off any more clothes on my account."Aura, what? LET HIM TAKE IT ALL OFF, fool girl!
