My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme in which I swoon over boys in books!
Book: Hourglass by Claudia Gray
He’s twenty, and never known anything outside of life in the Black Cross, an elite occult of zealot vampire hunters. He discovers that not all vampires are evil though, and wants to begin living his own life. Strong facial features, a firm jaw and high cheekbones. Deep green eyes, golden blond hair, he’s tall with a wiry, but well-muscled form. He has some old-world manners that make your heart melt like when he refers to the love of his life as “my girl.”
“I love you,” he murmured. “That means I’m not just here for the pretty parts. I’m here no matter what.”
Her eyes flickered over to Lucas. “How long have you known about this?”
“Since halfway through my time at Evernight Academy. I found out pretty much the same way you just did.” Lucas put one hand on the small of my back, comforting me. “Then Bianca came clean and told me the story. I realized—how I felt about her—because of who she was, it didn’t matter what she was.”
Lucas tugged at the neck of his shirt, exposing his neck. Quietly, he repeated, “Drink from me.”
“You want me to kill you,” I whispered. “You’d give up your life to save me.”
He gave me this look like that was so obvious, so necessary, and tears welled in my eyes.
“I know what I’m doing,” he said. The shadows in the room framed his face; it seemed as if the light in the room was drawn only to him. “I’m ready. The last thing I’ll ever know is that you’re going to be okay. That’s all I need.”
