So the book boyfriend for the week is...
Maggie is a seventeen year old girl who's had a bad year. She was smart and on track, but then her mom left, her dad is depressed, she's graduating - barely - and her boyfriend of almost three years dumped her for a college football scholarship. Lately she thinks life is all about hanging on by a thread and is gripping tight with everything she has.
Then she saves the life of Caleb and instantly knows there's something about him that's intriguing. But things change when they touch, sparks ignite. Literally.
They imprint with each other and she sees their future life together flash before her eyes. She learns that not only is she his soul mate, and can feel his heartbeat in her chest, but there is a whole other world of people with gifts and abilities that she never knew existed. She herself is experiencing supernatural changes unlike anything she's ever felt before and she needs the touch of his skin to survive.
Now, not only has her dad come out of his depression to be a father again, and a pain as well, but Caleb's enemies know he's imprinted and are after Maggie to stop them both from gaining their abilities and take her from him.
Can Caleb save her or will they be forced to live without each other after just finding one another?

So I've been pretty obsessed with this series since the very end of 2012/very beginning of 2013, and fawning over Caleb is nothing new to me. I've talked about how much I adore him numerous times ALL OVER THE PLACE. My old blog, Bookish, and I even mentioned the sweet during our swoon this week. But now I'm making this post, and I must admit that I'm kind of giddy for yet another excuse to pick out more adorable Caleb stuff to share! So here goes--why Caleb is some serious book boyfriend material...
He's pretty darn funny, right from the beginning...
"Hold on." I walked up to his cousin a few feet away. I looked up into his face, at least half a foot higher than mine, probably more. "I'm really glad I was there."
"Me, too. Thank you. If you ever need anything; a new pair of rollerblades, a popsicle, a kidney, it's yours."
He's patient and understanding...
(So this one isn't downright swoon-worthy, but I LOVE IT because it's important that he's not rushing her into things, even though that's the way it usually is with Aces. He gives her time to learn more and understand.)
"Well," he looked slightly unsure, "I, uh...you're my significant. I mean, I would never force you to do anything, but this means something to us; to my family. You are so important and the sooner you learn all about what's going on, the sooner you can make the decision if you want anything to do with it or not."
"I thought I didn't have a choice."
"Kyle and his big mouth," he muttered. "There are so many things you don't know. So many things that I need to tell you and explain. But if after you hear everything today you want nothing to do with any of it, or with me, I won't stop you from leaving if that's what you're asking."
There is also this super cute moment...
I roused slowly as she shook Caleb's leg as well. He pulled me closer and nuzzled my head when she tried to wake him. I heard them both chuckle. She shook him harder.
"Caleb, you have to take Maggie home."
His eyes instantly opened and he aw me, our faces almost touching. He smiled. "Hey. Did you sleep?" he asked.
And I could never forget these sweet, sweet moments that make my heart so happy...
His face split with a grin and he took my mouth forcefully and gratefully. I fisted his shirt front as his arms went around me. I begged that we'd have no interruptions this time as his skin worked like a sponge to extract all my worries and sorrows. It felt like the room took a spike in temperature, I felt too hot, but in a good way. My hand wandered to his hair, shaggy and soft. I let him devour me until I was sure I'd die of not breathing properly.
I pulled back a little, but he didn't release me, just let us sit so close, our lips almost touched and our foreheads did. His breath was hot and intoxicating.
"I'm so happy, Maggie. I hope you know that, even with everything that's going on, I'm so happy I found you."
The more I delve into this, the more moments I find that I want to share. Basically, this book is FULL of sweetness and swoons that make my heart flutter. Caleb's sweet, caring, kind, and so much more. For real, if you are a fan of sweet romance, I definitely suggest starting this series and meeting my boy Caleb. I freaking LOVE IT.
