Valentine's Book Boyfriends + Giveaway

Happy Valentines! Whether you're spending it with someone special or with your girls, the best nightcap is a super sexy romance book. Forget the chocolates and flowers. Those will be gone soon enough. Now, a book you can read over and over and over again until the spine cracks, the pages fall out and you can quote it like nobody's business. Today, we are sharing our book boyfriends with you. Why? Because we believe that sharing IS caring and well, we care.

Now here's the thing, it took us ages and ages trying to figure out who we wanted to giveaway. We're like hoarders when it comes to men. Slightly addicted and totally insane. Anywho, we would have picked Perry from Jenn LeBlanc's THE RAKE AND THE RECLUSE but she's already giving him away.

A little bow chica wow wow music please as we share who we would spend our Valentines with. Yeah, yeah. They're fictional. So is Edward Cullen and he gets tweens screaming and panty creaming. Inappropriate but true.

I’ve been trying to think of the perfect book boyfriend who I want to spend Valentine’s Day with. After thinking about it I came to the conclusion that my boy John Matthew from JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood would be the perfect choice.

I’ve never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day, not because I’m cynical, but because there just shouldn’t be one day where you feel special. John Matthew is one who would make you feel special just because it was a Tuesday. I don’t want sparkly jewels or expensive gifts. I just need something simple, something that is me. The best thing about John is that he knows and understands his woman so I have no doubt he would be able to pull off the perfect Valentine’s Day.

So for my Valentine’s Day with John there would be balloons instead of flowers. Instead of expensive jewelry he would get me a romance novel or two. We would have a cozy dinner and then snuggle up and watch Dirty Dancing. Since he can’t speak I’m sure we could communicate just fine with our hands. And then… well John is one sexy vampire and I’m sure he could show me just how special I am.

In the darkest corners of the night in Caldwell, New York, a conflict like no other rages. Long divided as a terrifying battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the city is home to a band of brothers born to defend their race: the warrior vampires of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown to himself and to those around him. After he was taken in by the Brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was- or his true identity. Indeed, the fallen Brother Darius has returned, but with a different face and a very different destiny. As a vicious personal vendetta takes John into the heart of the war, he will need to call up on both who he is now and who he once was in order to face off against evil incarnate.

Xhex, a symphath assassin, has long steeled herself against the attraction between her and John Matthew. Having already lost one lover to madness, she will not allow the male of worth to fall prey to the darkness of her twisted life. When fate intervenes, however, the two discover that love, like destiny, is inevitable between soul mates.
Like Jamie, I had a hard time choosing. Do I go with a dashing Duke, a virile Viscount, a hottie Highlander? Nope. I went with a sexy U.S Marshal. Zach McBride has stayed with me since reading Pamela Clare's Breaking Point, book 5 in the I-Team series. Plus it doesn't hurt that I kept picturing him running across the desert getting nitty gritty in the form of one, Jed Hill.

Zach is a man's man and totally would not break in case we got kidnapped on our Valentine's date. Picture Date Night (yes, that movie with Tina Fey and Steve Carrell) minus the hilarity. He's smart, a total badass and knows how to get out of a tough situation, all the while being resourceful. The only danger dating this guy is that at any moment, you could get kidnapped and used as ransom. *sigh* But I know he would find me.

Zach seems like the type of guy who gets straight to the point. Forget the flowers, candy and balloons. He would totally just do The Sexy with me. Maybe we'd watch Mr. and Mrs. Smith (because it's a spy movie and he'd get a kick out of it), cuddle for a bit... Oh, who am I kidding? I'd be all over that and then some. Skip dinner and a movie.

While investigating border violence in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, Denver journalist Natalie Benoit is caught in a bloody ambush and taken captive. Alone in the hands of ruthless killers, she will need every ounce of courage she possesses to survive.

Betrayed by another operative, Deputy U.S. Marshal Zach McBride has endured a week of torture and interrogation at the hands of a bloodthirsty Mexican drug cartel. Ready to give his life if he must, he remains unbroken—until he hears the cries of an American woman.

Although Natalie is only a voice in the darkness of their shared prison, her plight brings renewed strength to Zach's battered body. With her help, he overpowers their captors, and they flee through the desert toward the border, the attraction between them flaring hotter than the Sonoran sun.

But past loss and tragedy leave both of them reluctant to follow their hearts, even when the passion between them reaches its breaking point. Faced with feelings neither expected, they fight to stay ahead of the danger that hunts them as forces more powerful than they can imagine conspire to destroy them both…

Here's the deal ladies. Tell us which book boyfriend of yours you'd spend Valentine's day with. Two(2) lucky US readers will get to fight over which book featuring our Valentine book boyfriends they'd like. One reader will win BREAKING POINT and the other LOVER MINE.
