Book Boyfriend #9

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 is


Price of a Kiss by Linda Kage

*new adult romance*
**explicit scenes and language**

I don’t care what my cousin says; I am not the queen of impossible relationships. I mean, just because my last boyfriend tried to kill me and left a bit of a scar on my neck, then forced me to move across the country and legally change my name to Reese Randall to escape him, does not mean—

Oh, who am I kidding? For a freshman in college, I have to have the worst dating track record ever.

It’s no wonder love is the last thing on my mind when Mason Lowe enters my life. But the chemistry between us is like bam! Our connection defies logic. And he’s just so freaking hot. Being around him makes me feel more alive than I’ve ever felt before. I even like bickering with him. He could be my soul mate...except for one teeny tiny glitch.

He's a gigolo.

Boy, do I know how to pick them.

Um...are you READY for Mason?  Are you sure?  You will be leaving this page to go find his book and dive in!

He glanced up and his lips quirked with amusement.  "You got a little something."  Stepping closer, he reached out and gently rubbed his thumb slowly--oh, my God, so agonizingly, deliciously slowly--over the corner of my lip.  When he withdrew his hand, there was a dab of pink frosting on his finger.

Feeling a little breathless and dazed, I flicked out my tongue to the spot where I could still feel an echo of his touch.  I was tempted to dip up a finger full more of frosting straight off the top of the cake and intentionally smear it all over my mouth just so he'd touch me like that again.  But I was a good girl.  Drawing in a shuddering breath, I watched him stick his thumb into his mouth and suck the icing away.

Dear God. (Kindle Location 2618)

More?  Oh, okay.  More Mason.

He wrapped me in his arms and snuggled with me, talking about trivial things like Harry Potter, and lattes, and college, and spiders, and our futures.  We drew on each others hands with our fingers and guessed what pictures we'd made.  We tried to have a thumb war under the covers....with our toes.  Then we lay in tranquil silence, holding hands and listening to our breaths slow until we both fell into a dreamless oblivion. (Kindle location 3631)

Maybe just ONE more.

"...You're the good part in all of this."  two steps later, he was all up in my grill in a very pleasing, overwhelming, I-couldn't-breathe-I was-so-excited way.  But it was so, yeah, overwhelming, I moved back, only to find myself trapped between him and that wall.

"You're the warm sun that shines when everything else is dark," he went on, lifting his hands to rest them on the wall on either side of my face.  "A smile and a hug in a roomful of disapproval.  You're..." Wincing, he pressed his forehead against mine.  "You're everything." (Kindle Location 3293)

Yes, I know you WANT more.  READ the book!  I didn't even get to the full body massage and his wicked ways.  This boy is sexy, misunderstood, loving, protective, kind, determined, and little misguided.  He's absolutely yummy and a perfect book boyfriend.  Check this boy out!
