Welcome to day 4 of the awesome Top 10 of 2012 Hosted by: A Life Bound By Books, Confessions of a Bookaholic, Two Chicks On Books, Fiktshun, and Magical Urban Fatasy Reads!
First allow me to explain that I really don't get book crushes, but there are those characters that make me want to read a book, ones that make me cheer for them no matter the situation and ones that make me think now that's hot! Not sure if you can call that a crush, but if you do then I guess I have crushes! If you read my Top 10 Characters post from yesterday I apologize if the lists are similar. Please bear with me as I am seriously limited because some of my choices were not from 2012 :(
#1 Chase Williams from Release
First off let me say that Chase is truly bad-a**!! And he could make the list just by his sheer strength! Okay, but if I have to go deeper than his fighting skills, then I have to say that he is incredibly loyal, passionate and not quick to fall in love (probably my favorite thing), I also like the fact that despite being this tough guy deep down he is incredibly vulnerable, you just need to peel back the layers of macho-ism! He literally has the weight of the worlds on his shoulders, but he cares more about his friends and family then himself! Now that's hot!
#2 Gavin Cassidy from Exhale
Can you say sexy rock God???? Really do I need to say more?! I do, well then.....he is confident yet vulnerable, incredibly deep, strong, bad boy, powerful and did I say Rock God? Oh I did....but it is awesome enough to mention twice!!
#3 Jack from Everneath
Really Jack is what every girl wants right? He is kind, loyal, strong and completely and incredibly loyal! I don't think I have ever seen a guy so loyal! And if you don't know what I am talking about then you need to go out and read the book! Because well just trust me!!
#4 Sammy Berhane Jr. from Psion Delta
If you have read this series then you are probably asking yourself what in the world am I thinking by putting him on my list? And your right, having a boyfriend like Sammy would be torture. Now hold on and let me explain......torture because he is always getting into some seriously dangerous stuff and you would always be worrying about whether or not he was going to come home or not. Torture because he is literally the most hunted person, torture because he is so naive and so innocent. But hey those are reasons you love him too! You want to be the one he runs to for relief and to forget all his troubles, you want to be his comfort and his safety.
#5 Nathan McBride from Forced to Kill
Nathan is one of those guys that you know will always protect you, will lay down his life for you, and will kick some serious a** for you, but will also hold you and share with you your deep dark secrets and greatest fears. He is vulnerable and not afraid to show it, despite his incredibly rough exterior. He is almost untouchable and that is the kind of guy every girl wants....the kind they can't have.
#6 Raj McKenna from Entangled
Who doesn't love a bad boy every once and a while? Especially one who really isn't a bad boy, but just lets everyone believe it because it is easier then telling them the truth. He is fiercely loyal, powerful, sensitive, kind hearted and passionate. Kind of gives you the best of both worlds....bad boy meets good!
Well there is my list....as you can see I don't have 10 because of the guidelines of it having to be from a book released in 2012 and one that I had read in 2012 I was not able to include some of my other favorites! And really if I had to choose just one boyfriend I would totally choose Mr. Darcy and yes I will say that is a crush!!! So I am pouting a little, but decided to mention them below so you can check them out!
