My Book Boyfriend, hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader, is my favourite meme ever, allowing book bloggers to showcase our fictional crushes (and drool over each other's). I've seen my pick this week (from Simone Elkeles' Perfect Chemistry) pop up in My Book Boyfriend a few times in the past, so I'd just like to preface this post by saying:
Yep, y'all can back off Alex Fuentes coz I'm claiming him as mine. Mwahaha.
What's so great about him, you ask (if you don't already know)? For starters, he's super hot. He's a bad boy (on the outside, at least), with dark hair, dark eyes, tattoos and a motorbike named Julio. Definitely not my usual type, but he's just that freaking hot I couldn't help but love him anyway. Of course, the best thing about Alex is his inner goodness. Yeah, he's in a gang, but it's only because he has to be to protect his family. He has ambitions that go far beyond that, and the smarts to follow through. Plus he's so caring and sweet... and did I mention hot?! I pictured him as Alexander F. Rodriguez thanks to Elkeles' book trailers.
"Alex pulls me close and whispers in my ear, 'You only live once, isn't that what you said? Dance with me again.'
He cuts me off with a kiss so powerful I forgot what I was supposed to be upset about."
"'Mujer, you own my soul.'"
"'Hold it...,' he says. 'Feel the sweet spot. Linger there.'" [He's talking about the clutch in a car, of course... What were you thinking?! Get your minds out of the gutter!]
“I don't belong here. It doesn't matter, because even if I don't belong in this place, she's here and I want to be where she is... I want to know how to make this girl laugh. I want to know what makes her cry. I want to know what it feels like to have her look at me as if I'm her knight in shining armor.”Related
Guess what song I had in my head the whole time I was putting this post together?
