Top Ten Book Boyfriends of 2011

Top 10 of 2011 is an event going on all week long hosted by Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic, Lisa from A Life Bound By Books, Rachel from Fiktshun and Jamie and Patricia from Two Chicks on Books. It's a feature where we are talking about our favorites of this year and next year for an entire week!

1) Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth- Four pretty much personified the perfect man for me. Strong, rugged and with just the right amount of tenderness, he was absolutely one of the best guys I've ever encountered in fiction. I love him because he respects Tris and wants them to be on equal footing. He is brave, willingly conquering his fears, and he's not so sweet he's going to rot my teeth out with the things he says. If Veronica Roth had given him an Irish accent, I don't think I'd have recovered from this book ever.

2) Noah Shaw from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin- Noah can essentially charm the clothes right off you. Devilishly wicked with a sharp tongue and quick wit, he's one of a kind in fiction. There are novels that go through great lengths to tell you how hot a lead male is and then there are novels that let the leading guy show you. Noah is the second category. I was so determined not to like him in the beginning because I just wanted to roll my eyes but by god, when he is driving Mara with a cigarette hanging loosely from his lips (a habit I can't stand and love him for anyway) and his unruly hair catching in the sunlight I was literally drooling. Pretty much every word out of Noah's mouth makes me love him more.

3) Cas from Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake- It's pretty easy to figure out why I fell in love with Cas. He's funny, sarcastic and the best of both of the Supernatural boys. I'd hang with him any day! Plus, as much as he doesn't want to admit it, he's kind of a romantic.

4) Beck from The Demon Trapper's Daughter series by Jana Oliver- Beck is definitely rough around the edges but when it comes to being loyal to someone, he's absolutely the guy you want in your corner. Plus, you just know that he'd love you forever and probably piss you the heck off but it would definitely be passionate.

5) Logan from Touch of Frost series by Jennifer Estep- Logan is the guy all the girl's want. I think there is a lot more to him than we know about and he just sound smoking. There is something really sexy about a guy who can pick up anything and know how to kill someone with it. I'd always feel safe!

6) Adam from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- I really like a guy in uniform and Adam is totally that. He's dangerous, passionate and completely loyal. But on top of that, he's really sweet with his brother and so tender to Juliette because she's so damaged. Easy to see why he makes my heart race.

7) Jay from The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting- I love that Jay is a regular guy and can only do things that regular guys can. He isn't some super strong, super smart kid but he does everything in his power to make Violet safe. Plus, he's so stinking sweet to her. Derting did an awesome job of making him desirable but also just a regular guy.

8) Luc from Personal Demons series by Lisa Desrochers- Hello, sexy sexy demon. Heck, through the intense love he had for Frannie, he was able to withstand the tortures of Hell. If that is devotion, I'm not sure what is. I love that Luc is always striving to make himself better. Plus, you know he's passionate. I've read all about those spine-tingling kisses.

9) Bridger from Shifting by Bethany Wiggins- Bridger is just this enigma. I can't ever tell what he's thinking and I loved how he was so manly. He liked odd sports and was really into his heritage. Plus, he was witty, knew exactly the right things to say and was really patient with Maggie Mae.

10) Xander from Matched series by Ally Condie- I could easily choose Ky here too. I'm team undecided because they are both good choices but I feel like Xander is such a true friend and I respect his loyalty. I love that he is willing to be unhappy so Cassia can be happy but he makes it clear that he isn't giving up. He's thoughtful and kind, everything I could fall for!

Those are my book boyfriends this year. It was really hard to narrow down the list but I feel like there are plenty of guys to fall in love with here! Who did you add?
