My Book Boyfriend (99)

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme that originated at The Unread Reader in which we swoon over boys in books!

Book: Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers
Series: Personal Demons

He’s a powerful angel—in fact he’s a Dominion, a protector from the Second Sphere. With incredible sky-blue eyes and a voice that is as smooth as music. Chin-length, platinum waves surround his gorgeous face, and he smells like snow and summer at the same time. His usual attire, include jeans and a tight white T-shirt that shows off his tan and some serious muscle definition. He believes in the fight of good verses evil and wants to protect human souls from being "tagged" for Hell.


He smoothes a tear away with his fingertips and gazes down into my eyes. He wraps his hand around the back of my neck, cradling my head, and brings me to his shoulder, burying his face in my hair. I let him hold me for a long time, feeding off his energy. I’ve never felt anything like it, but it makes me warm all over. If you asked me right now, I’d have to say I believe in love, ‘cause that’s what this feels like: pure love.

He wraps a hand around the back of my neck and leans in. At first, I think he’s going to kiss me, and that aching tingle explodes low in my belly as I realize how much I want him to. But his cheek brushes past mine and he whispers, “Tell me what to do to change your mind.”

What I see in his eyes—what he’s trying to hide behind that amused expression, maybe even from himself—is that he’d willingly give up his wings for her.

He steps behind the scoreboard. “Just because you’re no longer a threat to her soul, don’t think I won’t be watching. Give me an excuse, and I’ll smote you on the spot.” And then he disappears—gone as if he was never there.
