Top Ten of 2012: Book Boyfriends
Thursday December 27, 2012 at 12:00 am |


It’s that time again!  The year is winding down and it is now time to post the top ten of many various categories of all the books I read in 2012.  This annual event is hosted by Lisa from A Life Bound By Books, Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic, Jaime from Two Chicks on Books, Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Rachel of Fiktshun.

Today’s Topic: Best Book Boyfriends of 2012



Simon Hunt from Secrets of a Summer Night by Lisa Kleypas.  Simon is calculating and methodical, planning his every move out to woo his lady love.  He’s business savvy and unconcerned with conventions and social traditions.  Like a panther stalking his prey, Simon will have what he wants in due time.  Easily a man to fall for.



Wrath, King of The Black Dagger Brotherhood, and MC of Dark Lover by J.R. Ward.  Wrath’s unbridled power is fascinating.  I love his compassion, his vulnerability, and his unwavering power.



Alec Kincaid from The Bride by Julie Garwood.  Typical alpha like cave man who views his women as property but is soon taught a lesson when dealing with his rambunctious new bride Jamie.  His interactions with her were charming, and he couldn’t help being protective of her.  I love that he finally realizes that loving someone does not mean he is weak.



Adam Morgan from Josephine and the Soldier by Beverly Jenkins.  Former soldier and a bit of a bad boy, Adam has an adventurous spirit and knows how to support his lady love.  He is strong and brave and a little rough around the edges.  But there is nothing he wouldn’t do for Josephine and her family.



Finn Mac Cumhaill from Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton.  Oh Finn!  He is so sure and confident in himself you really can’t help but to adore him.  Not to mention he is quite kick ass!  He’s the Mac Cumhaill, and will protect and defend those he loves to the death.



Alex from Deliriun by Lauren Oliver.  Alex puts me in the mind of a Peter Pan type.  He’s playful and fun, and really easy-going.  But he has so much passion for his old world and for life in general.  He’s patient and kind, and extraordinarily selfless and brave.



Tom Imura from Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry.  Tom had a beautiful and unique way of looking at the world.  He had so much compassion for people, and was possessed of a kindness that cannot readily be found in people.  And the way he wielded his swords….CALIENTE!  Tom was the absolute bees knees!



Prince Po of Graceling by Kristin Cashore.  Who knew someone so fierce could be so kind and protective.  His love for Katsa was unconventional, but it worked.  I loved how they could be vulnerable with each other, and how they were able to make each other discover new and exciting things about themselves.  Prince Po was just a beautiful guy.



This one is a tie for me as I love them both equally.  Robb Stark and Jon Snow of The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin!  I love these two guys with everything in me.  They are both so honorable and dedicated to their duty and their family.  I love that they are flawed and make mistakes, but always try to do their best in the face of adversity.  They are kind, and strong, intelligent and fierce.  I cannot get enough of them.



Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth.  Four, Four, Four, *le deep sigh*.  I LOVED me some Four.  He was perfect!  Mysterious and strong, protective, and so intelligent.  I loved that he could be vulnerable with Tris was so not about to take any shit from anybody.  He was unbelievably kind, but could be ruthless if the situation called for it.  There is so much more to know about him and I can’t wait to dive into Insurgent.

  1. LOVE Alex and Four but I didn’t read their books this year 🙁

  2. Katrina says:

    Dark Lover….I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood! I have the Insurgent/Divergent combo and still haven’t gotten around to it. Shame on me! I haven’t heard of the other titles, but I’ll be sure to check them out.

  3. Awesome list! I’m totally with you on Wrath and Po. They are both totally awesome. Jon Snow has won my heart just from the TV show but Game of Thrones is on my 2013 TBR as I’ve heard epic things.

    My Top Ten is here if you’d like a look 🙂

  4. Patricia says:

    I read about half of those titles, and own almost all the others, so I’m kind of trying to resist the urge to get up and binge-read, but.. Hehe. Anyways, great list! I adore Four! <3

  5. I love your list and completely agree about Alex. And Pandemonium has me burning up with excitement. I’m still listening to Graceling (on pause because I’m not the one driving around during the holidays) and I’m already loving Prince Po.

  6. I love this list. There are so many books on this list I want to read. So many books so many great reads and so little time. I wish I didn’t have to work. LOL!

  7. Yeeeey for Four <3 <3 <3 <3 Love this boy so much! And Wrath was really cool when I read Dark Lover 🙂
    Sorry for stopping by so late but I was so busy the past few days! 🙂 Nice to be back! 🙂
    My Favourite book boyfriends <3

      Me too! Four was my favorite of them all.

      • For at least the two of you crying about what CEOs make, you know how the “average worker” can counteract that? By going and getting more education, or by taking a risk and creating their own business and becoming a CEO.I swear, I have never seen more class envy as I have living in Duluth.

  8. One of my fav things about you (besides the fact you make me giggle) is the variety in your reading. Thanks for introducing me to so many books I’d never even think to look for!
