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.

BLOGIVERSARY + GIVEAWAY – Our Darkest BBFs

the darkest

Today we’re talking about our Darkest BBFs. These men take our breath away, even with all of the darkness within them! If you haven’t met all of them yet, we hope you will! And don’t forget about our wonderful giveaways below!
PS If you missed out on our previous blogiversary posts, they were Fiercest BBFs and Kindest BBFs, and Favorite Heroines.


Aeduan from The Witchlands Series by Susan Dennard
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

I say darkest because he does have some dark stuff going on but….he’s always a softie inside and has a weakness for ~certain~ people, lol.

Te varuje.

I trust you as if my soul were yours.

 

 


Adam Moynihan from Every Other Weekend by Abigail Johnson
* Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

When we first meet Adam, he is in a very dark place. His eldest brother has died in a very tragic accident and as a result, his parents have separated. With this separation, he and his other brother, are required to go back and forth from his family home to his father’s apartment every other weekend. Adam is angry at the world, blames his father for his crumbling family and is constantly arguing with his brother. Adam’s salvation comes in the form of his neighbor Jolene, who is also required to spend time at her father’s apartment every other weekend. Over time, Adam begins to adapt to his situation and even tries to correct it, but he also knows that he’s risking his relationship with Jolene if his family reunites and the visits to the apartment complex cease. How much more tortured and star-crossed can you get?

He stopped halfway inside the building and took a deep breath without taking his eyes from me. Then he dropped his bag to the floor and crossed the lobby in three long strides, sending my heart pounding. His arms went around me, and my feet were lifted from the ground as his face was buried in my shoulder. If he noticed how I stiffened when he embraced me, he didn’t show it. “I really needed you to be here, right here. I wouldn’t have made it another step. How’d you know that?”

Dante from Legendary (Caraval #2) by Stephanie Garber
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

“If you’re here to learn about Legend,” he said, “I can tell you more than anyone inside there.”

“Would you tell me who he is?” Tella asked.

“You know I can’t do that.” 

“You could if you were Legend.” 

Dante’s voice rumbled with a laugh. “If I was Legend I’d definitely never tell you.” 

“Because you don’t trust me?” 

“No,” he answered slowly, gently tugging her even closer. “I’d hold on to my secret because I’d want to keep playing the game with you, and if I told you the truth it would spoil all the fun.”

 
 

Vicious from Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1) by LJ Shen
* Review * Amazon * Goodreads

“I want you,” he said simply. “Just you. Nothing else. Only ever you,” he breathed out in pain, closing his eyes. “Fuck, Emilia. You.”

 

Penn from Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen
* Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

I love you, Daria Followhill, and I think you love me, too. In fact, I think we fell at the same time. You, like rain, in drizzles, over the weeks. Me, like the fucking sky above my head, all at once, crashing without the faintest chance of stopping.

 

 


 

darkest_jen

Christian Allister from The Maddest Obsession (Made #2) by Danielle Lori
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Christian Allister was a Fed who was involved in the mafia.  His many shades of grey bled together and lead him again and again to the dark side.   He was cold, calculated and in control.  Yet it was impossible for me not to love him, especially when he was around Gianna and let his guard down for a second.  Christian was seductive, dark, protective and I was obsessed with him.

His hand on me, rough, and covered in the blood of all his enemies— and most likely innocents— shouldn’t affect me the way it did. But I was burning up, and I needed more. So much more.

 
 

Her Husband from Soul in Darkness by Wendy Higgins
* Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Psyche was fated to marry a monster who was described as a dark-deeded winged serpent.  Yet her husband wasn’t anything like she expected.  He was compassionate, heartfelt, listened and tried to make her happy, I absolutely loved her husband.  I want to say sooooooo much more but I can’t, you just have to read the book. ♥ 

 “I cannot say all the things I wish to say.” His voice was deeper and huskier than ever, sending a ripple through me. “But if you listen, Psyche, listen to my touch…perhaps you will hear.”

BLOGIVERSARY + GIVEAWAYS – Our Favorite Female Leads

female leads

Since we’ve already had two posts talking about our Fiercest BBFs and Kindest BBFs, today we’re going to talk about some of Our Favorite Female Heroines. These are the women we look up to, respect and absolutely love! So have fun meeting our favorite heroines and we’re wishing you lots of luck on our giveaways below!


female_jen

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

I had no clue how I would feel towards Evie, aka Evelyn Dasher.  Her father played a horrific role in The Lux Series and I hated him with a passion.  But right from that first page, I loved Evie.  She was just so relatable, logical, sweet, kind and had the hugest heart ever.  Plus I loved that she didn’t just fall for Luc either, she made him work for it!

Our stares connected , and the effect was instantaneous. Everything around us faded, and there was just us, and this . . . this sensation of falling. I couldn’t look away as this feeling surfaced, rushing to the top.
I’ve been here before.
My breath caught as a wave of tight shivers rippled over my skin. That thought didn’t make sense. I hadn’t been here with him before.

 

Sunny from Sunset Rising (Sunset Rising #1) by S.M. McEachern
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

I loved Sunny right away!  She was fierce, brave and extremely loyal.  Plus I loved her endurance, strength and how she always worked at making herself better.  She was someone people could look up to and respect, so I instantly connected with her. 

My voice caught on hitch as tears stung my eyes, and I shook my head and silently admonished myself because crying was such a weak thing to do. And there was no room for weakness in the Pit.

 

Psyche from Soul in Darkness by Wendy Higgins
* Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Psyche proved herself that she was born to be a queen, when she agreed to marry a monster to help her village.  She was brave, spirited, determined, smart and I absolutely loved her!

All I knew for a fact was that if he was an enemy, he was the most dangerous enemy possible, because when I was with him, my heart, my body, and my soul wanted him.

 

 

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

I LOVEDDD Franny so much.  She grows so much into herself as the series progresses and I loved watching her grow into her potential.  I loved that she questioned everything and wouldn’t rest until she got answers. Most of all, I loved the closeness she had with Court and Mykal and then her friends at Stardust and eventually Stork, too.

 

 

Safi from The Witchlands Series by Susan Dennard
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

She is SO badass and has the funniest insults of all times!

“Yes,” Safi breathed, swaying into one of the men holding her up. She flashed a grin at him and said, “I’m Safiya fon Hasstrel, and I can do anything.”

 
 

Iseult from The Witchlands Series by Susan Dennard
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Our OTHER resident badass.  I love the friendship between Safi and Iseult.  Might be one of my favorites in a series of all time!
 

“I hate this. Both the storm and the plan. Why does it have to be ‘we’? Why not just me?”

“Because ‘just me’ isn’t who we are,” Iseult hollered back. “I’ll always follow you, Safi, and you’ll always follow me. Threadsisters to the end.”

 
 

Mare from House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

This book honestly came out of nowhere and absolutely surprised me in the best possibly way. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC and after the first chapter, I was absolutely hooked. One of the main reasons was how much I loved the main character, Annaleigh. Here is a girl who has lived through unspeakable tragedy, with multiple members of her family dying, many under mysterious circumstances. But nonetheless, she still continues to fight for her family and tries to figure out what is happening to her and her family. I loved Annaleigh’s dedication and concern for her sisters and her blossoming relationship with Cassius, but most of all, I loved how strong and brave she was, even under the most dire circumstances.

 

 

Female_chelsea

Evie from The Diviners (The Diviners #1) by Libba Bray
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Some mornings, she’d wake and vow, Today, I will get it right. I won’t be such an awful mess of a girl. I won’t lose my temper or make unkind remarks. I won’t go too far with a joke and feel the room go quiet with disapproval. I’ll be good and kind and sensible and patient. The sort everyone loves.

But by evening, her good intentions would have unraveled.

 

Celia from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Celia is hard to quote because…everything she and Marco say is so magnificent and bold and beautiful…and the story is shrouded in mystery. So what quote? This one just stuck with me, and I really loved it…Celia has a way of putting simple statements into words that I, myself, could not have expressed so perfectly. 

“You’re in the right place at the right time, and you care enough to do what needs to be done. Sometimes that’s enough.”

 

 

Claire from Outlander (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

They’re both wonderful quotes of fragility and fierce determination she can’t quite conquer, in these moments.  Otherwise she’s a bossy boots. I love her!

…to step outside the group, let alone to stand against it, was for uncounted thousands of years death to the creature who dared it. To stand against a crowd would take something more than ordinary courage; something that went beyond human instinct. And I feared I did not have it, and fearing, was ashamed.

***

I felt as fragile and as brilliant as the glass, as though I would shatter with a touch, and fall in glittering fragments to the floor. If I had meant to spare either Jamie’s emotions or my own, it seemed I was very much too late

kindest_chelsea

Jamie from A Study in Charlotte (Charlotte Holmes #1) by Brittany Cavallaro
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

I’d been thinking for so long that what I wanted from Holmes was—everything. Like this thing between us was a Wonderland rabbit hole, that we could fall endlessly and never hit the bottom. I wanted us to belong to each other, completely, in a way where no one else could come close.

 

 

Marco from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

“Celia, wait,” Marco says, standing but not moving closer to her. “You are breaking my heart. You told me once that I reminded you of your father. That you never wanted to suffer the way your mother did for him, but you are doing exactly that to me. You keep leaving me. You leave me longing for you again and again when I would give anything for you to stay, and it is killing me.”

“It has to kill one of us,” Celia says quietly.” 

 

 

Sam from The Diviners (The Diviners #1) by Libba Bray
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

“Well, maybe you can give him a noodge?” 

“A what?” 

“A noodge. A little prodding,” Sam explained. “I’m getting antsy here.”

“Fine. I’ll send him an urgent letter.” At the door, she wrinkled her nose. “Noodge? Is that a real word?” 

“It’s Yiddish. Like… Ikh hob dikh lib.” 

Evie narrowed her eyes in suspicion. “What does that mean?” 

Sam smiled. “Maybe one day I’ll tell you.”

Grant Sanchez from Fraternize (Players Game #1) by Rachel Van Dyken
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Grant Sanchez walked into the story and he stole my breath.  He made me laugh, smile and I loved his friendly personality.  But every single time he picked up Emerson, when her heart was hurting, he made me fall even harder for him.

 “Why?” I had a hard time finding my voice as he slowly moved his head back up. It was impossible not to feel the heat from his body.

He stopped, looking me in the eye. “Because one day, he’s going to regret walking away from you. And I want to be there when it’s too late—when you’re in my arms, my bed instead.”

 

Colt James from It Started with a Cowboy (Cowboys of Creedence #3) by Jennie Marts
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Colt James was swoon worthy, sexy, charming and I just wanted to steal him out of this book.  I loved his friendly, easy-going nature and what a good guy he was.  He was always helping others and his actions showed how sweet, thoughtful and kind-hearted he was.  I fell hard for him!

“What if I fall?” she whispered.
“It’s okay to fall.” He gazed down at her, his expression sincere, and it felt like he was talking about something else, something deeper.

 

 

Landon from If the Summer Lasted Forever by Shari L. Tapscott
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

I’m obsessed with fake boyfriend/girlfriend books and this one stole my heart.  Landon was charming, adorable and made me constantly smile.  He would say and do the cutest things ever and while Lacey tried to keep her distance from him, it was impossible.  He was such a sweetheart and I wanted to steal Landon right out of the book!

 “We’re not in public,” I remind him when he brushes his lips against my jaw. It’s my last noble effort to keep things simple.
“No, we’re not.”
“I thought we weren’t going to—”
“I changed my mind.”

 


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

“You’ve stolen my heart, you little crook.”

His smile only stretches further and brighter. “My most valuable theft.”

 

 

 

Silas from Superfan (Brooklyn #3) by Sarina Bowen
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Silas is a character that readers had met earlier on the in series as a side character.  He was always a sweet guy who had a crush on Delilah Sparks but getting his story and getting to know HOW that “crush” came about was so fun.  He basically is a perfect book boyfriend and is always there for Delilah time after time. It was so wonderful to read.

 

 

 

Isaac from Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

I know I’m cheating by picking Alex and Henry together, but to me, they are a pair I can’t separate. So I’m going to talk about them both. When I tried to think of any other BFFs that made me feel more gooey and warm, I couldn’t think of anyone else other than these two. Alex and Henry have taken up a portion of my heart with their love story, which is in no small part to how kind they are to so many people in their lives, especiallytheir family and friends. There’s is nothing they wouldn’t do for each other (which is shown over and over again), as well as those they love. Alex and Henry love each other unconditionally and refuse to let any of the major hurdles stop them. Their love is rooted in friendship and understanding and each bring out the best qualities in each other. I could go on for hours, gushing over my love for these two boys, but just read the book yourself. You won’t regret it.

“I thought, this is the most incredible thing I have ever seen, and I had better keep it a safe distance away from me. I thought, if someone like that ever loved me, it would set me on fire. And then I was a careless fool, and I fell in love with you anyway. When you rang me at truly shocking hours of the night, I loved you. When you kissed me in disgusting public toilets and pouted in hotel bars and made me happy in ways in which it had never even occured to me that a mangled-up, locked-up person like me could be happy, I loved you. And then, inexplicably, you had the absolute audacity to love me back. Can you believe it? Sometimes, even now, I still can’t.”

The Star-Crossed Ladies


Prinz Soren from Lady Smoke (Ash Princess Trilogy #2) by Laura Sebastian
* Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

After the events of Ash Princess, things are not any easier for my darling Prinz Soren. To say he’s been through a lot is being kind, but he continues to fight for what he believes is right and just alongside Theo and co. Soren continues to defy the way his father raised him and wants to help those who have been wronged by the corrupt people in power of the world.

fiercest_chelsea

Jamie from Outlander (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

“I can bear pain, myself,” he said softly, “but I couldna bear yours. That would take more strength than I have.”

 

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

“I haven’t done a single thing in my life to deserve you, schnecke, but I will never give up on you, and I won’t let you give up on me.”

 

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.

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

 


fiercest_jen

Jack from Sunset Rising (Sunset Rising #1) by S.M. McEachern
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Jack was protective, smart, fierce, loving and honest.  What he was willing to do and sacrifice to help Sunny, oh my heart.  I loved Jack with my whole heart and soul.  

He picked up my hands from the table, held them in his, and looked at me with his intense blue eyes. “I’ll do everything in my power to keep you safe.”

 

 

Jessie from Bad Influence by Charleigh Rose
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Jessie was the ultimate bad boy who was seductive, charming and hot as fuck. *fans face*  Allie tried her hardest to fight it, but this is Jessie Shepard we’re talking about.  There was no escaping him.  So when he started showing up where Allie always seemed to be, I was obsessed.  He knew what he wanted and I loved watching him take control.

He moves toward me, and instinctively I step backwards until my back is flush with the door. “I want you. And I’m sick of playing this game.”
I swallow hard, feeling the warmth of his skin without even touching him. “That’s not why you’re here,” I say, calling his bluff. 
“No,” he admits. “But it definitely sweetens the deal.”
“You had your chance. The offer’s expired.”
“Is that so?” he asks, moving closer. “And what’s changed?” He pinches my chin between his finger and thumb and tilts it up so I’m forced to meet his gaze. 
“Everything.” I don’t know why my voice comes out as more of a whisper.

 

 

Carson from Darker Water (Once and Forever #1) by Lauren Stewart
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

I. Loved. Carson.  If you love alpha males then you have to meet Carson.  He was addictive, seductive, powerful and charming without any effort at all. His words and actions had me melting into a puddle.

 

“If I turn around now things are going to escalate, Lane.” I spoke with my eyes closed, my hands clutching the countertop. “So what would you say if I asked you how far you wanted to go with this?”
“I’d say, ‘Why are you asking me questions when you should be fucking me?’”

 

 

 

 

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

“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.” 

 

 
 

Merik from The Witchlands Series by Susan Dennard
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Take the god’s gift. Become the Fury.

It was time to become the monster Merik had been all along. No more numbed distance. No more fighting the Nihar temper. Only vicious, hungry heat.

One for the sake of many; vengeance for those he’d lost.
