My Book Boyfriend (65)

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.)

Damen Auguste Esposito
Book: Evermore by Alyson Noel
Series: The Immortals

He's immortal, undeniably beautiful, with shiny black hair that juts just shy of his shy of his shoulders and curves around his high-sculpted cheekbones. Almond shaped eyes that are deep and dark, surrounded by lashes so lush they almost seem fake. His lips are ripe and inviting with a perfect Cupid's bow. And the body that holds it all up is long, lean, tight, and clad in all black.  He will stop at nothing to be with the girl that he loves, even if that means waiting centuries for her soul to be reincarnated.


"I know what it's like to lose the people you love," he whispers, reaching across the table and placing his hand over mine, infusing me with a feeling so good, so warm, so calm, and so safe--I close my eyes and allow it. Allow myself to enjoy the peace of it. Grateful to hear what he says and not what he thinks. Like an average girl--with a much better than average boy.

"Why do you hide under those baggy jeans and hoodies?" he whispers, his fingers stroking the side of my face, pushing my hair behind my ear. "Don't you know how beautiful you are?"

"Oh, so you see some chick in baggy jeans and a hoodie, and you just have to have her so bad, you decide to repeat high school, just to get to her?"

"Sounds about right." He laughs.

"Couldn't you have found another way to ingratiate yourself into my life? It just doesn't make any sense." I shake my head and roll my eyes, getting worked up all over again, until he trails his fingers down the side of cheek and gazes into my eyes.

"Love never does."

  2. Oh geez! I have this book sitting on my shelf, but I haven't had the desire to read it. Now after reading these seriously swoon worthy quotes from Damen I'll have to rethink my first asessment.
    Great choice! Can't wait to read this series, just for the sake of Damen!
