When I read Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens, it immediately got added to my favorite books. Part of the reason must be credited to Kellan Kyle…ok, ok…he’s a huge reason for it, because I fell in love with another fictional character.
Yup…I admit it. Kellan Kyle immediately went on my fantasy boyfriends list. He’s uber hawt, and when I say that?!? I mean smokin’ HOT! Mkay?!? Melt-your-panties- HAWT! RAWR hot!
I like to have a concrete image of my fictional men so that when I fantasizedaydream read about them I have the proper visual in my head. I have to give credit where it’s due in this case. I was reading a review on Goodreads and Kara had thoughtfully provided the perfect image. I saw it, and BAM! THAT was my Kellan too. There was no name to go along with the gorgeous face, so I left her a comment, and asked if she knew his name…sadly she didn’t.
What to do?!? I went to twitter and asked for help in identifying this fabulous creature…and my friend Anya (site city) found out his name…Good heavens you’d have thought she gave me diamonds when she tweeted me his name. I might have screamed…just a little, and then I went image searching. So, thank you Kara and Anya <3
It’s been a while since I did a My Book Boyfriend post, but while I was busy You Tubing David Gandy on Saturday… for a future post… I happened to come across a video of Beiron Andersson, and he just screamed Andrew Hayes to me. Andrew is from Grave Refrain by Sarah M. Glover, and he just happens to be the newest edition to my fantasy boyfriends.
When I read the Fever series for the first time I had a love/hate relationship with V’lane.
Yes, he’s incredibly sexy as hell, and yes I can’t even imagine being around someone…or something… that is so utterly beautiful…let alone has the power to give O’s with a look, a touch…YOWZA! How is that even fair?!? I think my reluctance to fully embrace him at first was based on 2 factors. The 1st is that I’m a Jericho Barrons gurl all the way, and I was from the get go. The 2nd reason was because I didn’t trust either of them for the longest time, but I trusted Barrons more. I knew that both of them wanted something from Mac, but something in my gut told me that JZB really cared for her on a deeper level. Was I right or wrong?!? Y’all know I’m not gonna answer that in case there are peeps who haven’t read the series yet.
Upon subsequent readings I have made my peace with V’lane, and decided that he most assuredly deserved to get a turn at being my book boyfriend…so here goes…
I’ve gotta say right off that I’ve been waiting a very long time to write about this book boyfriend, but let me start by sharing something that might surprise you…
I didn’t like Rehv AT ALL for the 1st few books of the series…in fact I would go so far as to say I despised him…Holy Crap! Did I just hear gasps and bad words from some of you?!? Well OK fair enuff…I get that some of you loved him right from the beginning, and to be honest I usually have a soft spot for the bad boy type…but I just wasn’t feeling it for this particular one “true?”

Christian Grey…Christian Grey…Christian Grey…OOPs…Hi there! You caught me daydreaming didn’t you?
The thing is with this fantasy boyfriend? I just see his name, or say it in my head and I lose all coherent thought. Logic and reason?!? Nope…gone…out the door. There are some characters that are written so well that they just own a piece of you. Christian Grey is one of those for me. I guess I’ve read well over a thousand books in my lifetime, yet my list of truly memorable literary men is actually pretty short considering that. O, I’m not saying that I don’t remember a lot of them, but the ones that keep me thinking of them? Continuously? Wanting just one more book? And then just one more? The ones I want for a fantasy boyfriend foreveh? Well it’s under 10 to be honest…and Christian Grey is mighty high on that list. In fact, he shares the top spot with one other, so yeah…I have mad love for him.
I first discovered Christian aka Fifty in August of 2011. I know, I know… I was late to the party on that one, but in a way I’m glad I was. Mostly becuz I was able to read the series without a whole lotta time in between the books coming out. I’m so impatient and greedy that way…greedy…hmmm…that’s an apt term for how I feel about Fifty. I admit it. I want him. I want all of him in all of his Fifty Fuckedupedness<-<- is that even a real word?!?…never mind, it doesn’t matter.
Let’s discuss Christian…something I could do all day long. First off his name. I flove his name. I love saying it in my head over and over. There’s just something about it that calls to me. I like men that have polysyllabic rather than monosylabic names. * Oooo… big words.* For some reason I just find them much more sensual and erotic sounding. I for one would never shorten his name to Chris…EGADS! Heaven forbid. I’ve noticed that when I love the names an author chooses I’m much more likely to respond positively to that character. Does that happen to you too?
