Best Book Boyfriends of 2014

Posted December 25, 2014 by Carmel in Miscellaneous / 50 Comments


Merry Christmas!!!

Another year has come and gone which means that it’s time to participate in Two Chicks On Books, Reading YA Rocks, Magical Urban Fantasy Reads and Tales of a Ravenous Reader annual TOP 10 OF 2014 week long meme. Not only do I love lists but these posts are easy to put together and schedule during the holidays so that I can spend time with my family. Enjoy!

10. Bannerman Boru

The hero of Darby Kaye’s new Urban Fantasy series was an instant hit with me; from his Irish brogue, to his cavalier mannerisms, to his love for his son and hot warrior bod.
09. Curran

This dude’s a regular on my year-end book boyfriends list, and considering he’s a cat (ok lion) that’s saying something. Unfortunately Kate is NOT someone I’d want to mess with, so I crush on him from afar.
08. Reyes Farrow

Even though I read SEVENTH GRAVE AND NO BODY several months ago, this man still visits me regularly in dreamland. If you haven’t made his acquaintance yet, well… more for me!
07. Bones

He’s blonde, immortal, badass, and has an oh so sexy Brit accent, plus from what I’ve seen in the NIGHT HUNTRESS books he’s absolutely dynamite in bed.
06. Alec Royce

I just met this charming bloodsucker in September, but as you can tell, he made a HUGE impression on me. I’m cheating a bit because I’m only at book 4, not 6. Ssshh!
05. Vail

Tortured heroes are irresistible IMO, and no one does ’em quite like Felicity Heaton. Next year is going to be challenging to pick my fav ETERNAL MATES protagonist, but Vail was hands down the winner of 2014.
04. Ty

If good guys are more your style, then Bonilla’s handsome Jinn is as perfect as they come. I seriously can’t get enough of this sweetie which is why he made the cut two years in a row. Ty never disappoints!
03. Adam Hauptman

No RR book boyfriends list would be complete without at least one werewolf; this man’s as alpha as he is sexy. He’s one heck of a swoon-worthy character! ❤
02. Clay Danvers

I never thought I’d see the day when my FAVOURITE wolf would come up short of the #1 spot, but here we are. He’s first among the weres though, so that still counts for something!
01. Jamie Fraser

This Scot needs no introduction IMO; whether you’ve read/listened to the books, watched season 1 of the TV series, or both. His grade-A hunk status is undeniable.

Who were some of your book boyfriends of 2014?

  1. At the beginning of the year, I never would’ve thought Vail would’ve been on anyone’s book boyfriend list. Boy, was I surprised. Clayton Danvers, I miss him so much. That might be my next listen. Lots of other great book boyfriends. Great list. Merry Christmas.

    • I was on the fence about Vail as well, but once I read his story I was a goner. I can’t believe that you’ve been neglecting Clay for MONTHS. Merry belated Xmas!

  2. I’ve read Oultander and book two only and yes I love Jaimie Fraser! Maybe I will have read all the others sometimes next year. I am actually listening to them on audio.

  3. Hi Carmel!
    Definitely can’t argue with Jamie Fraser but also Clay Danvers–they are in my Top 5 as well, and it goes without saying but I cannot freakin’ wait until Outlander returns 😉

    • They did an excellent job of the TV series; I even managed to get #1 hooked on it. Score!! It just sucks that it airs 2-3 weeks behind the US schedule in CAN.

  4. Jennifer from The Book Nympho  

    Adam made Anne’s list. But he pissed me off too much in Night Broken for him to make my list. LOL

    Bones would normally make it to my list but he didn’t make it this year. There were a few new hotties on my radar this year so a few old faves got left out.

    I had two werewolves on my list, aren’t you proud? ;p

    • Aaww, why do you have to hate on Adam like that!? You have more man-candy to chose from now that you’ve branched out in your reading. Euuh, proud? No! Quit stealing my alpha males!!

    • Unfortunately I didn’t listen to Burn for Me until AFTER I posted this list, otherwise he’d most likely have replaced Curran for me too. I loved Jamie before, but seeing him on TV made me appreciate him so much more!

  5. I agree with all the ones I’ve read, but I still need to meet #2, 4, 6, and 10. I’d have to add Asher from Crimson Night series, Trent from the Hollows, and Terrible from Downside Ghosts to my list 🙂

  6. I love Bones too. ^_^ However, I only read book 1 and 2 of the series but, still, they were great and the characters too. HA, I love his accent too 😉 Although I read them in French so I’m looking forward to trying the 3rd one in English. Also, ah yes, I have met Curran when reading Kate Daniels #1 back in September. He was nice. There’s potential for him to be in my Top Ten list ;D

    • Now I’m trying to sound out an English accent with a French twist. I’m sure it’s still sexy because it IS Bones after all. Keep reading, and Curran will wind up on your list in no time!
