My Book Boyfriend (42)

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie of The Unread Reader, in which we swoon over boys in books!
(I--as in me, Amy--don't like to use commercial photos, I like to use the authors' descriptions and my imagination.)

John After
Book: Going too Far by Jennifer Echols
Series: N/A

He's a small town cop at the age of nineteen, tall with blond hair, and long blond eyelashes framing deep hazel eyes. Built with a body like Matt Damon and irresistible dimples when he smiles. His lips are sensitive and soft looking as he bites his lip gently, a habit of his. He has the sort of six-pack abs that you see all the time on TV but rarely in person. His sense of responsibility sometimes gets in the way of his ability to let go, until the right girl comes along.


"You dress like you're Japanese," he said.
"The clueless Japanese who work at the car factory and wear those weird plastic sandals? Thanks."
"No, the cute girls you see at the mall in Birmingham."
He looked down at his forms, pen poised. But he didn't write anything. That blush crept up from his neck and across his cheeks. He had just realized he'd called me cute.
"I mean, the Japanese girls," he said, still looking down. "You know how you dress. With your T-shirt and your jacket and your jeans and your shoes and your weird socks and your hairpins and your blue hair."

He touched my bottom lip with one finger. "Just say yes."
I lost myself in his dark eyes. "Yes."


  1. Matt Damon circa Jason Bourne? I'm gonna say that's an affirmative! And I really wish I could see those type of abs in RL.


    I own this book, I just haven't gotten around to reading it. Hopefully soon. :)

  2. A 19-year-old cop? Wow! He sounds gorgeous.

  3. I have this at home! I want to read it, just for that last quote!
