Book Boyfriend #7

Joining Readingandthings in the meme, Book Boyfriend.

Here's the rules:

1) Pick a book boyfriend, it can be from the book your currently reading or from one you've already read.
2) Write what kind of boyfriend he is, and if you want, say why you think that
3) Pick a quote from his book, it could be long or short, that proves he is the kind of boyfriend you said he is
4) Make sure the quote, and the explanation, DO NOT give away anything from the book (we want all of the twists and plot surprises to remain surprises)
5) Share it! And shout it out it using #ReadingAndThings

So my book boyfriend for the week

How about brothers!

Tyler Mann  from True (True, #1) by Erin McCarthy


Riley Mann from Sweet (True, #2) by Erin McCarthy

Meet Tyler from True!

When Rory Macintosh’s roommates find out that their studious and shy friend has never been with a guy, they decide that, as an act of kindness they’ll help her lose her virginity by hiring confident, tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the job…unbeknownst to Rory.

Tyler knows he’s not good enough for Rory. She’s smart, doctor smart, while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program, hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in. But he can’t resist taking up her roommates on an opportunity to get to know her better. There’s something about her honesty that keeps him coming back when he knows he shouldn’t…

Torn between common sense and desire, the two find themselves caught up in a passionate relationship. But when Tyler’s broken family threatens to destroy his future, and hers, Rory will need to decide whether to cut her ties to his risky world or follow her heart, no matter what the cost…

"So you're a logical kind of chick, huh?  I should have figured that out.  Me, I'd rather read a book than do math problems any day."  He dropped his beat-up bag to the floor.  I'm guessing I've read thousands of books at this point."  

Clearly I had to toss my preconceived notions about him out the window.  Thousands?  The thought made me break out in anxiety-inspired sweat.  "Sound time-consuming.  And expensive."

"Oh, but I have a secret weapon.  He dug in his pocket and pulled out his wallet.  Picking though it, he withdrew and held out a very battered card. "Da-dum.  My library card. Sexy, huh?" (Kindle Location 472)

Oh and Tyler?  He has his junk pierced - in case you're interested.

Meet Riley from Sweet! 

Jessica Sweet thought going away to college would finally make her free of her parents’ constant judgments and insistence she play chastity club role model for their church events, but if anything, the freedom has made her realize she can’t go home and be a hypocrite anymore. Tired of dodging their questions, she stays at school over the summer and lands in an unexpected crash pad: Riley Mann’s house.

Sarcastic, cocky, and full of opinions, Riley is also sexy personified with tattoos and biceps earned from working as a roofer all day. Not the right guy for her even if Jessica was looking for a relationship, which she is definitely not. But Jessica knows that Riley hides the burden of having to raise his younger brothers behind that grin and as she helps him get his house in order for a custody hearing, they begin to fall hard for each other, and she is forced to question what she’s hiding herself.

Jessica has never had a problem getting naked with a guy, but when it comes to showing Riley how she truly feels inside, her fear of rejection may just ruin the best thing—the best guy—to ever happen to her…

I tried to pull away, but he put his hands on the wall on either side of me, trapping my body against the house as he grinned at me. 
 "You're an ass," I said.

"I'm just being honest.  Because you are bratty, even you have to admit that, but I also find you intelligent, sexy as hell, and strong.  I like that you'll take the public bus even though you have no clue what you're doing and you're scared.  i like that you're staying in this dump when you could probably call up Daddy and get money for a hotel, even if he doesn't know where you really are."  The last bit wasn't even close to the truth, but I was too busy enjoying his compliments to correct him.  Because Riley was right--I was all those things.  I could e annoying and bratty, yet I liked to think I was somewhat smart, and I knew I was strong, tenacious.  That he saw me for who I was did weird things to my inside that had nothing to do with sex.  (Kindle Location 1177)
