So our book boyfriend for the week is

Silas Moore

All Broke Down


In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack’s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with ALL LINED UP, a young woman discovers that you can’t only fight for what you believe in . . . sometimes you have to fight for what you love

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians—you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and infuriating, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

Why?  Let me count the reasons...

Love his laugh...

A really handsome jerk, who kind of, sort of sacrificed himself for me, and looks even more gorgeous when he laughs.  A laugh, by the way, that's low and throaty and pretty much makes my ovaries melt.

I know when I'm fighting a losing battle.  It's a sensation I've felt at many a meeting or protest.  And this battle with Silas, he's winning by a landslide. (Page 186)

He may be figuring out hook-ups aren't enough...

When she slows to a stop, I lean across the console and kiss the place where her neck meets her shoulder.  She shifts away as soon as my lips touch her skin.

"Silas."  Damn.  I've heard that tone before.  I look up, but I don't move away.  If there's anything I am, it's stubborn, and I've not had nearly enough of her to be done yet.  (Page 162)

He makes some great deals...

I pull her forward, insinuating my knees between hers, and her body naturally follows, settling across my thighs.  Her lips part, but she catches herself before she gasps this time.  I keep her steady with my hands at her waist and say, "I'll make you a deal.  A question for a kiss."  (Page 78)

He's pretty hard on himself...

Because she was right. Levi was right.  I'm bad...a bad decision, bad seed, bad blood...whatever you want to call it, that's what I am.  And it's only a matter of time until it has me turning out just like Levi, cut off from the people I know and the only thing I love. (Page 98)

He's trying...

God, I want to hit this kid so bad.

Instead, I take a deep breath and back up a few steps.  "See you on the field, fish."  (Page 257)

He's one sexy boy...

"I push the door a little farther, music spilling out into the hall, and then I see him. He's by the foot of his bed, shirtless and doing push-up after push-up. There's a faint sheen of sweat across his muscled back, and I swear watching the way his muscles move could give reality TV a run for its money as far as entertainment goes.

Why isn't there a reality TV show filled with hot guys doing sweaty, mouthwatering tasks?

Oh, right. That's called sports. (Page 212)

Oh, I have seen this boy...

"You don't have to have everything figured out.  God knows, I don't.  I'm just asking about right now, in this moment.  Do you want me?"

Instead of trying to push me away again, the hands on my chest smooth upward.  Then slowly, she slides her hands around my neck until my chest is flat against that smooth, silky shirt.

"Of course I want you.  Have you seen you?

"I see you." (Page 135)

And I love him.  He's just yummy.  What do you think?
