Our Best/Favorite Book Boyfriends of 2014


best of 2014

Boy oh boy do we FLOVE our book boyfriends here on Bookish Temptations. They come in all ages, walks of life, careers, looks, lifestyle…you name it…we love ’em. Here’s our favorites of 2014…


Isn’t this one of the most important character in a book. May it be Romance, Erotic, Suspense, Thriller… There is always that one guy in a book that we always look forward to know. 😉

Who made my Best Book Boyfriends this year… Hmmm… Let’s see.

1. Mackenna Jones from RIPPED by Katy evans
2. Greyson King from ROGUE by Katy Evans
3. Q from Monsters in the Dark Series by Pepper Winters
4. M from The One Night Trilogy by Jodi Ellen Malpas
5. Hayden Stryker in The Clipped Wings Series by Helena Hunting
6. Beckett Taylor from The Poughkeepsie Brotherhood by Debra Anastasia
7. Alex Avery from the After Dark Series by Kahlen Aymes
8. Gideon Cross from Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day
9. Naz from Monster In His Eyes by J. M. Darhower
10. Cade from No Weddings Series by Kat Bastion and Stone Bastion

Katiebird’s Favorite Book Boyfriends and One Husband:

1. Matthew de Clairmont from The Book of Life (All Soul’s Trilogy) by Deborah Harkness
“But you don’t need words to tell me how you feel,” Matthew said. “I see you, even when you hide from the rest of the world. I hear you, even when you’re silent.” Diana and I share Matthew, so he’s my husband too. LOL

2. Landon Lucas Maxwell from Breakable by Tammara Webber
-If you listen to only one audio book from 2014, it needs to be this one. The author’s son is the narrator, and he completely owned me. I highly recommend you listen in the dark, in bed. *happy sigh*

3. Shane Arthur from Still Life with Strings by LH Cosway
– Shane’s entire body is a work of art as he moves with his violin, and I realize that he was right, it really is like an extension of him.

4. Daemon Black from Opposition (Lux series) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
-This boy has been on my Favorite list for two years now. It will be weird to not see him on this list at the end of next year. *sad panda*

5. Ethan Holt from Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven
I bet he has a very nice penis. I bet it’s glorious, like his stupid perfect face, and gorgeous eyes, and muscled body. I bet if he entered his penis in a competition, it would win “Best in Show” and he could walk around with a giant blue ribbon stuck to his crotch.

6. Simon Lewis from City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
“Why is it that whenever I think I’ve found the most terrible thing that could happen to me, I’m always wrong.” Another boy that’s been on my favorite list for years, and won’t be back next year. 😦

7. Ridge Lawson from Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
-“For her, I bend. For you, I break.” One of the most special guys on this list for sure.

8. Hayden Stryker from Clipped Wings/Inked Armor by Helena Hunting
-“Everyone has scars, Tenley. If we’re lucky, they’re only on the outside.”

9. Jay Fields from Six of Hearts by LH Cosway
-His eyes sparkle with some kind of hidden knowledge as he lets me pass, like beautiful people know the meaning of the universe and are amused by us ordinary folks who have to bumble along in the dark.

10. Clark Barrows from Screwdrivered by Alice Clayton
-“Why ride a cowboy when you can ride a librarian?” 


I love me some alpha males! I hope one of them ended up under my Christmas tree on Christmas morning 😉

    Since there is no new Gabriel Emerson book, I’m gonna say Jamie Fraser. I know he’s been around awhile but I hope I can get away with that answer because “Written In My Own Heart’s Blood” came out this year. I love me some Jamie. (Also, Ian, Roger and Lord John Grey. Yes, I am greedy.)

    Brant/Lee Black Lies
    Keller Banks Bright Side
    Calder Reynes, Becoming Calder
    Kingsley Edge, The King
