We hope you’ll want to meet all of our favorites too! And we’re wishing you lots of luck on our giveaways below!  Enjoy!  And thank you for celebrating with us!

Kulti from Kulti by Mariana Zapata
* Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Mariana Zapata knows how to write a leading man and Kulti is no exception. He is surly and brooding and has absolutely no problem barking orders at his team, especially Sal. There’s a reason why he is so tortured, tortured enough to pass out drunk in a bar, alone, requiring Sal to come to his rescue. However, underneath all that attitude and snark, is a kind man who wants to help others. His belief in Sal’s abilities and potential never waivers and there’s nothing he wouldn’t do to help her succeed.

“What would I gain from telling you the first moment I realized you were meant to be mine? Nothing. You’re supposed to protect what you love, Sal. You taught me that. I didn’t wake up one day and know I didn’t want to live without your horrible temper. I saw so much of me in you at first, but you aren’t like me at all. You’re you, and I will go to my grave before I let anyone change any part of you. I know that without a doubt in my mind. This,” he pointed between us. “This is what matters.”



Nathaniel from Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Nathaniel took one more step and halted, his spine straight. He didn’t turn around, as if he couldn’t bear to face her. 

“I like it here,” she said, the truth surprising her as she spoke. “It almost feels like—like a home to me. I feel safe. I’m not afraid of you or your nightmares.”

He laughed once, a bitter, humorless sound. “You barely know me. You haven’t seen what I can do, not truly. When that happens, I expect you’ll change your mind.”


Rhen from A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

A sound chokes out of my throat. I want to weep for an entirely new reason. The burning pain has reached my head, and my eyes begin to cloud with stars. 

“You are responsible,” she says, her terrible voice fading away. “You, Rhen. You alone will destroy them all.”



Rob from Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Once upon a time, I would stride across the park- ing lot and those bodies would part like the Red Sea. Everyone knew me. Everyone wanted to be me.

Now? No one wants to be Rob Lachlan Jr.

Not even me.




Luc from The Darkest Star (Origin #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

While I never ever thought I would say this, because Daemon has been my #1 bbf for the last five years, Luc not only challenged him but he grabbed first place.  I feel so disloyal saying that, but Luc was EVERYTHING!  He was hilarious, sigh worthy and charming without even trying.  He made me laugh, sigh and when I started to see how much he protected those he cared for, it was astounding.  

I wanted more than kissing. I wanted—
“What do you want?” he asked, his gaze holding mine.
“You,” I whispered, cheeks burning.
“You have me.” His thumb dragged along my lower lip. “You’ve always had me. Always.”



Ash from Bad Habit (Bad Love #1) by Charleigh Rose
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Asher Kelley, aka Ash, quickly owned my heart and his tortured soul spoke to me.  His history broke my heart, so even though he could be the biggest douche bag ever, he was also addicting and charismatic without even trying.  No matter what he did, Briar and I kept getting pulled in further and Ash will always be one of my top book boyfriends!

This thing between Briar and me is like a runaway train. It can’t be stopped, and it’ll take us both straight to hell.

“Tell me, Briar,” I whisper, getting closer to her ear. “Did he make you come from a kiss like I did? Does he know what you sound like as you do? Because I can still hear you. I can still see you.”


Colton from The Good Girl’s Guide to Being Bad by Cookie O’Gorman
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Colton was my favorite type of guy, sigh.  He’s one of those where you have to dig and look for clues, to see who he truly was.  And while he came across as a conceited, cocky, jerk who got into fights and skipped school, he could also be so sweet to Sadie.  So when he stood up for his brother or did things that would steal my breath, how could I not love Colton with everything I was. Colton was the ultimate pierced, bad boy who quickly captured my heart.

When I finally worked up the courage, I followed my instinct and pulled the ring into my mouth, giving it a short tug.
That was when I realized just how much he’d been holding back.
With something like a growl, Colton slanted his mouth over mine, and the kiss went from a slow burn into a wildfire.



Court from The Raging Ones (The Raging Ones #1) by Krista and Becca Ritchie
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Court, Court, Court.  You have so much baggage to your past that it’s hard to comprehend how you could have ever had any kind of hope and trust in humanity again.  Yet, you did. And you welcomed Mykal, Franny and even your brother back into your life. You are so strong and kind to your core and that’s what really made an impression to me.



Stork from The Raging Ones (The Raging Ones #1) by Krista and Becca Ritchie
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Stork is a Saltarian that was raised by his kind’s mortal enemies, the humans.  He had to bear the burden he did growing up and even more so when he met up with Franny, Court, and Mykal.  It was obvious he wanted to give Franny her answers so bad but wouldn’t for the longest time because of being duty bound to the admirals.  Loooooved his character.



Fiske from Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

I don’t belong to you.” I repeated the words I said to him that night he pulled the stitches from my arm. This time, to lift the weight that pressed down onto him and silence whatever words were whispering in his mind. 

And because a small part of me still wanted them to be true.

Yes, you do.” He pulled the hair back out of my face so he could look at me. “Like I belong to you.
