Book Boyfriend:

Everybody already knows of my undying love for Jacob Black.  So this week I want to spotlight a new book boyfriend who has recently stolen my heart.  Four from Divergent was everything and I totally can’t wait to hook up with him again in Insurgent.  I actually did a book boyfriend post on him a few weeks ago so I’ll pull info from that post so you can get to know Four and all the reasons I love him…I’m thinking a character profile is in order in the future.

  • Profile:
  • 18 years old
  • Dauntless Faction Leader
  • At least 6ft tall
  • Spare upper lip with full lower lip
  • Deep-set, dark-blue eyes
  • Lean, yet muscular build
  • Hidden tattoos
  • Long slender fingers
  • Has a quiet strength and subtle kindness
  • Can be ruthless when needed

 

“I have a theory that selflessness and bravery aren’t all that different.” pg. 336

 

 

Quotes:

“He” is the young man attached to the hand I grabbed.  He has a spare upper lip, and a full lower lip.  His eyes are so deep-set that his eyelashes touch the skin under his eyebrows, and they are dark blue, a dreaming, sleeping, waiting color.  pg 59

“I don’t want to say this,” he says, “but I feel like I have to.  It is more important for you to be safe than right, for the time being.  Understand?”
      His straight eyebrows are drawn low over his eyes.  My stomach writhes, partly because I know he makes a good point but I don’t want to admit it, and partly because I want to press against the space between us until it disappears.
       I nod.
       “But please, when you see an opportunity. . .”  He presses his hand to my cheek, cold and strong, and tilts my head up so I have to look at him.  His eyes glint.  They look almost predatory.  “Ruin them.” pg 287

 

 

We kiss again, and this time, it feels familiar.  I know exactly how we fit together, his arm around my waist, my hands on his chest, the pressure of his lips on mine.  We have each other memorized. pg 407

 

 

“I have something I need to tell you,” he says. I run my fingers along the tendons in his hands and look back at him. “I might be in love with you.” He smiles a little. “I’m waiting until I’m sure to tell you, though.”
“That’s sensible of you,” I say, smiling too. “We should find some paper so you can make a list or a chart or something.”
I feel his laughter against my side, his nose sliding along my jaw, his lips pressing my ear.
“Maybe I’m already sure,” he says, “and I just don’t want to frighten you.”
I laugh a little. “Then you should know better.”
“Fine,” he says. “Then I love you.” pg 486

  1. I love Four! And I can totally see this guy as the leader of Dauntless. Now I’ll probably be seeing his face when I’m reading book 2.

    LOL, sorry if I messed up your own personal visual. But I had to put a face to him for the MBB meme and this guy came closest to the boy in my head. Four does make me swoon and I see he has another fan!

  3. I love this post Jade. I think Four is a fantastic choice and I love your pick for him.
