Fictional Boy That Caught Me Off Guard

 Okay, there are a few fictional boys that caught me off guard.  These definitely aren’t in any particular order!

Morpheus (The Splintered Trilogy)

He is one big ball of contradictions.  He loves but he doesn’t know how to show it without tricks and games.  He struggles with trying to be worthy in Alyssas’ eyes.  He’s awful at times, but I freaking love him.

 The Darkling (The Grisha Trilogy)

 Yes, I know I’m supposed to be all “No, the Darkling is evil!” But I can’t.  He does some pretty atrocious things, and is crazy as hell at times, but I understand part of him.  There’s a part that just wants to be loved.

Jackal (The Blood of Eden Trilogy)

Oh Jackal, I thought I was going to hate you.  He’s the perfect narcissistic asshole.  But I love him all the same.  He puts on a big front, but he does have feelings buried somewhere under all his hatefulness.

As you can see, I definitely have a thing for the bad boys, but these are the really bad boys, and it’s so hard to turn them away.

    So my choices are not guys that surprised me in your sense, but I was surprised by how hard I fell for them and how often I think about them now. My guys are Maxon from The Selection, Adrian from VA/Bloodlines, and my fresh-on-my-mind pick, Bishop from The Book of Ivy. Thank you! emandm2222(at)gmail(dot)com

  3. _Sandra_

    Perry & Roar (Under the Never Sky trilogy), Tucker ( Unearthly by Cynthia Hand), Dimitri (Vampire Academy). Looove them! 😉
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Lisa Vazquezanzua

    I would have to say Death from The Arcana Chronicles. I was so not expecting to like him so much.

  5. Michelle Lee

    A fictional boy that caught me off guard was Dante Hill in Talon by Julie Kagawa. I never thought Ember’s brother would be so UGHHH… haha if you haven’t read the book yet, I totally recommend if you like dragons and young adult fantasy! Thank you for this amazing chance!

    I liked Peter Kavinsky from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. He was nicer and funnier than I thought he would be.

  7. Fictional boy who caught me off guard? Hmm, probably Sturmhond in The Grisha trilogy!! I didn’t think I’d fall in love with him more than any of the boys in that series. 🙂
