Book Boyfriend #17

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


In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series THE DARK ELEMENTS, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.
Dez wasn't just Jasmine's crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining balance between good and evil. He was her everything...right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn't help that Jas's father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.
And now he's back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn't taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again...

Why do I love Des?  Really? You have to ask?  Besides being a JLA guy?  That's really enough for me right there but there is also this...

Dez tightened his hold around the back of my heard and snaked an arm around my waist as I started to pull away.  The pressure on my lips increased when he pulled me against him.  Every thought scattered.  His chest was rock hard and broad against mine, his arm a steel band even I couldn't break.  Heat pooled low in my stomach at the profound sound rumbling up his chest.  My pulse thrummed when the kiss deepened.  Somehow my hands ended up on his shoulders and I wasn't pushing him away.  (Kindle Location 217)

Yeah, that's why.

What about you?  What do you think of Dez?  Do you have a book boyfriend for me?  Leave me a comment.
