Elena’s Book Crushes: Ignazio Vitale and Aidan Donnelly

Welcome to another post where I share with you my love for my favorite book boyfriends. Sharing is caring, right? 😉 Well, today I’ll talk about two amazing men. Actually “amazing” doesn’t even begin to cover it. They are two characters that are bound to conquer the heart of every reader: Ignazio Vitale from Monster in His Eyes by JM Darhower and Aidan Donnelly from Waiting For You by Heather Huffman

Why I love Ignazio:

Ignazio is a very special character, one of a kind. From the very beginning, we sense there might be something sinister surrounding him, but we don’t know what it is. Despite the unease, you’re bound to be seduced by him. He’s like a hunter pouncing on its prey, that offers herself to him willingly. He’s enigmatic, passionate, dangerous, but vulnerable at the same time. He says he’s not a good man, but is it really so? He’s a multilayered character you get to know little but little. And yet, you feel you never know him, because he surprises you every time. I so can’t wait to read more about him in Torture in Her Soul.

Some beautiful Ignazio quotes:

“You may growl, and hiss, and meow, and maybe sometimes you bring out those claws, but I know how to make you purr. I’m the king of the jungle. I’m the predator.”
“Does that make me your prey?”
“That makes you my queen.”

“I was connecting the dots,” he says quietly. “Your freckles are like stars. They tell a story, depending on how you connect them.”
I smile to myself as he takes my hand, linking our fingers together.
“What did they tell you?”
“They told me you’re beautiful,” he says. “And I’m a lucky son of a bitch to have you all to myself.”

“I’m warning you. I’m not a good man, Karissa, and I never will be. So don’t think you can fix me, or that I’ll ever change, because I won’t. I can’t. You have to know, if this goes any further, if you ask me to stay, I’m not going to be able to let you walk away.”

Why I love Aidan:

Aidan is the man every woman dreams of. Handsome, sweet and a real gentleman. He’s not a man that lets you walk away easily. If he’s in love, he does his damnedest to prove it. And he’s also such a perfect father to his little girl. He’s all kinds of perfect and you absolutely need to meet him.

Some beautiful Aidan quotes:

“I’m supposed to be here for moral support and I, well, all I could think about just now was pulling you on my lap and making love to you right there in the tub.”

‘I love you.’
‘I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of hearing that,’ she smiled.
‘Good, because I’m never going to tire of saying it.’ He returned the smile, his eyes drinking in her face one more time. “

“Every day is an adventure with you, love.”
