Hello everyone! You already know how much I love sharing my passion for my book boyfriends, right? 😉 So, today I’m talking about Ambrose Young from Making Faces by Amy Harmon.

Why I love Ambrose:

Ambrose is a very special guy, one of a kind. Not only because of how he is but also because of what he goes through and what he learns from some of his experiences. He’s one of the most handsome guys around, he’s a wrestler and a champion but he soon understands that the real you is not how you appear to others, it’s how you’re within… He’s an amazing character — he’s very loyal to what’s important to him and he discovers that love goes beyond physical traits. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — Ambrose and Fern’s relationship is BEAUTIFUL and very touching and I highly recommend you get to meet the wonderful guy that Ambrose is…

“I will spend the rest of my life trying to make you happy, and when you get tired of looking at me, I promise I’ll sing.”

“I want your body. I want your mouth. I want your red hair in my hands. I want your laugh and your funny faces. I want your friendship and your inspirational thoughts. I want Shakespeare and Amber Rose novels … And I want you to come with me when I go.”

“The real thing, when done right, is always better
than a daydream.”


*SWOON* So what are you waiting for? Go and meet Ambrose now!! And then send him back to me when you’re finished 😉

    What a great choice for your Ambrose. I could see him looking like Jon.

    Loved, loved, LOVED!!! This book, and there really is no other way to describe this story and the characters but beautiful. I think I’ll reread it next. Didn’t realized how much I missed him, till now.
