Prone to Crushes on Boys in Books

I'm a romantic.  I fall in love easily.  Thankfully, for the sake of my marriage it's always with a fictional character.  But boy do I fall hard.

First there was Lestat De Lioncourt.  For those of you who don't know he was the original vamp before vampires were cool.  Anne Rice is such a hipster.

Then Edward Cullen came in with his fierce protectiveness and creepy stalker ways.  And there's his ethereal beauty.

He was closely followed and swiftly replaced with Jacob Black, whose happiness always mattered more to me than Edward.

Then there was Peeta Mellark from The Hunger Games, who I still really kind of love.  He's vulnerable and protective but without the creepiness of Edward.  He's also strong and can really manhandle some icing.

Following Peeta, there was Four from the Divergent books.  Mysterious, dark, strong, and, in my mind, completely sexy.  Ahhh, Four.

I couldn't fall in love with anyone from the Game of Thrones series, because you never know when someone is going to die.

Then I was in a deep love triange with Jace Wayland and Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments.  Jace with his conflicted heart and smoldering dark side.  Magnus with his sense of style, flair and loyalty.  I get that he's a bi-sexual and is currently involved with a man, but I'm willing to look past that.

Then, of course, there is Mr. Gray.  God I love me some vanilla.  The idea that there's actually a man out there who knows his way around lady parts make me shudder in a good way.

Now, the only man for me is one Mr. Jericho Barrons from The Fever Series.  That man is everything I've ever wanted.  A bad ass.  Dark.  Mysterious.  Strong.  Rich.  Protective.  Fierce.  "The biggest baddest fuck with all the toys."  I'm completely consumed with him.

I daydream about these characters, not all at once, although that could be interesting.  Right now I'm all about Jericho Barrons, but each of these men have played a part in my day dreams and fantasies.  Usually we're kicking ass together.  This is why it's so easy to get lost in books.

Who do you love?

Reading this made me realize I am not the only one day dreaming about fictional hotties!
Edward has been numero uno for quite some time. He now got replaced by Four.

Jerricho Barrons is hard to top. I haven't been able to in a year of other books!

I was so SCARED to read 50 shades but yes Mr. Grey does it for me too! I also find myself day dreaming about the men in these books...my FIL claims this is why women are never happy...I think it is what keeps us going ;-) Loved this post!! I'm a total book junkie!
