So my book boyfriend for the week is...

Leo & Malik

(I couldn't choose one without choosing the other!)

Fall (Cold Mark, #1) 

A savagely wicked new adult sci-fi serial blasts off with Fall, the first installment in The Cold Mark Saga...

Only one thousand Humans survived The Travel from the shattered Earth. Some Humans say it was their penance for crushing such beauty. Eighteen-year-old Braita merely thought it was pathetic - pathetic that her people had been that blind.

Now, the Humans live in the solar system, Kline, where three planets are habitable. Joyal, the smallest planet, is embraced by the Humans - their family to love as they had never loved Earth. Though a planet covered mainly in water is dangerous real estate to dwell upon.

Their worry turns into devastating reality when Braita’s blessed village is struck by a tsunami. Population numbers must be kept to a minimum. Drastic measures must be taken. Braita’s life is twisted in brutality when she is chosen as one of the three hundred Humans to be removed from Joyal…and sent to the Mian, the aliens to fear, on the planet Triaz.

Thrown head first into a barbaric world she knows nothing of, Braita must adapt to a dark life as a slave of the Mian society. Her existence depends on it…and possibly, the fall of her heart.

Seriously, there is no way I could choose one without choosing the other.

Fall is a short little story (to kick off a series that will no doubt be fantastic, based on how much I enjoyed the first book) and I wish I had MORE from Leo and Malik, but I already know that I heart them.

They're rough. And protective.

Not exactly human, but they are important.

And goodness gracious, I seriously loved them!

Let's see...the moment I fell for Malik...

"The quiet purr that I heard from deep within his throat was in pure cadence to the harmony that wove itself through my entire being, shattering deep into my soul. Still gently cupping my cheek, he wound his other muscled arm around my waist and held me close while nuzzling his face against the side of my neck, deeply breathing me in."

And the moment I fell for Leo...

"Leo tugged on my ponytail, peering down at me. His voice was soft and gentle, a coaxing tone that made my shoulders relax."

That part made me fall for Leo, but the part that made me definitely love him was later...but I can't give you that. ;)

I am in serious need of more Leo and Malik right now, though, and cannot WAIT for the second book, Sink. Like, seriously. Is it November yet?

What do you think of my boys Leo & Malik? Do you have a book boyfriend to share? Leave us a comment!
