These are my book boyfriends of 2011, in no particular order
(don't tell my real boyfriend........)

Shadow Heir (Dark Swan #4)
by Richelle Mead
My Review

He's a strong, powerful, and scheming fae king with flowing reddish gold hair, green eyes, and a bondage fetish. Um, yes please!

The Hour of Dust and Ashes (Charlie Madigan #3)
by Kelly Gay
My Review

When I started this series I didn't know how much I was going to love it, but what I really didn't expect was Hank! Charlie often calls him her lion, and that is a very apt description. He is a cocky, sexy, blond off-worlder that would give everything to protect those close to him.

Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1)
by Tahereh Mafi
My Review

Is it wrong to lust after a teenage boy when I'm going to be turning thirty in a few short years? What if he is a pretend teenage boy who only lives in Mafi's genius dystopian world? That's okay? Whew! My most favorite thing about Adam is that he has tattoos and old piercings and he's not the typical YA hero. Dreamy.

This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress #5)
by Jeaniene Frost

Oh Bones my Bones. There is just no one that compares to him. He is cocky, snarky, sexy, hilarious, and completely enamored by Cat. He is also feared and respected by other vampires. I know I said this list was in no particular order, but really Bones is at the top of it. Don't believe he deserves the title? Check out chapter 32 of book two in this series. When you can breathe regularly again, get back to me........

Head Rush (Disillusionists Trilogy #3)
by Carolyn Crane
My Review

Wow. Another series that I read on a whim that completely blew me away! Packard is unbelievably sexy, but he is such a nontypical hero. He has a pretty sucky past and is totally screwed up. In fact, for the first book in this series he is stuck inside a restaurant! But the steam between him and Justine and undeniable and HOT. And his attraction to her is so honest (even if nothing else out of his mouth is........).

Shadowfever (Fever #5)
by Karen Marie Moning

If Bones is my #1 man, then Barrons is my #1 1/2. He is just so growly and angry and forceful and wonderful! His character grows and changes just as much as Mac's does in these books, but its in much more subtle ways. And when he calls her 'rainbow girl'......... *Swoon*. What a sexy beast!

Magic Slays (Kate Daniels #5)
by Ilona Andrews

I adore Curran and Kate in this series. Curran acts like exactly what he is - a shapeshifter that turns into a lion and is lord of the beasts. His arguments with Kate just make me love him more. He is clearly the only man in the world who can handle her, and he can barely do that.

Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse #11)
by Charlaine Harris

Is this my favorite Sookie book? Um, no. But is Eric still one of the all-time best book hotties ever? Yep!  Tall, blond, and doesn't give a shit? Perfect (well, in book world at least).

Second Grave on the Left (Charley Davidson #2)
by Darynda Jones

Reyes is a little hard to define. He is not completely, uh, human. But what he IS is mysterious, secretive, and dripping sexuality. And apparently he is also "chocolate heroine" - works for me. 

Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires #4)
by Chloe Neill

Ethan, Ethan, Ethan. In many ways he is a lot like Eric. But Ethan is more suave and subtle in his plans and his actions. He is the gentlemen's vampire, so to speak. All the back and forth, will they or won't they between him and Merit drives me crazy, but it sure does keep him interesting. And so do those green eyes........


  1. I was having a breathless moment just reading through this list. I would only tweak it a little.

    Thanks for the share!

  2. How could I forget Packard and Dorian??? Im ashamed! Great list!

    My Top 10

  3. Thanks for this!!!! And I LOVE Bones too! Sigh....

  4. This is the best Idea for a list ever, and I got some great book ideas to start reading... Bones or Eric... that is my question for you, and not recent Eric, he has lost a bit of his edge, orginal, hot hardcore Eric, that would be a toss up, and I have to say as much as I love bones... I love Vlad as well.. cant wait for his spin off book to come out. Thanks for the great list.

  5. Great list! I love LOVE Eric and Barron but my greatest LOVE in Adult books is John Matthew from Black Dagger Brotherhood, I melt, swoons for him.
    I need to start reading Kate Daniels series.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Bones! Reyes! Eric! YES! I must read Shatter Me, Dark Swan series and Fever series. All are on my TBR lists!
    My Top 10 Book Boyfriends of 2011

  7. I haven't read any of those books except Shadowfever. Barrons definitely deserves to be on that list.

    My Boyfriends:

  8. Love Eric from Sookie Stackhouse series! I'm a new follower :)
    Annmarie@World of Books

  9. Great list...mostly of series I still haven't started. I see lots of sexy times reading in my future in order to catch up. Love me some Bones.

  10. DARYNDA!! I Love the Charley series I'm really excited to see other fans!! <3

    Xpresso Reads

  11. I only know Adam in this list, but the others sounds so good! I'm trying out some Adult fiction so I'm adding these books to my to-read list. :)

  12. Barrons and Mac are amazing together! And great list! I still need to read so many of these, Jeanine Frost's series looks awesome!

  13. I totally agree on Reyes and Eric! I got hooked on the "Grave" series after going to one of Darynda's book signings and I love Charley Davidson -and Reyes. I am only on book three of the Sookie Stackhouse series and Eric tops all the men (so to speak) in those books.

  14. Reyes is great but what about the BDB OMG I would have every last one of them as a boyfriend, husband, side piece, whatever, lol.

  15. Barrons and Curran are definitely my favorites! I love your choices!


I love to read comments!
