My Book Boyfriend (67)

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.)

Colin Brennen
Book: Overprotected by Jennifer Laurens
Series: N/A

He’s tall and lean, a university student who takes on the job of bodyguard for a society princess to earn some extra cash. He has black wavy hair, a sharp, angular face and dark brown eyes. Dimples appear in his cheeks when he smiles and he’s charismatic and charming.


“That was amazing.” Colin’s voice.
My eyes flashed. My quickened breath echoed off the mahogany walls. The melody still sung in my head, mixing now with the sound of his rapid breathing, stirring me. He moved around the piano. “It hurts you when you play that song.”
“I think of things that will never be.”
“You can have anything you want, Ashlyn.”
I shook my head, eyes pinching closed. “No.”
“That can’t be possible.”
More than anything I wanted someone to understand what was inside me. The bench rocked. Heat pressed into my side. He was sitting next to me, I felt his eyes beg me to look at him. I did. Frightened my face might give away my heart, my hands barely moved away from the keys.
His hand shot out and stopped me. “Play it again.”

I felt his gaze on my face, and my cheeks heated. The moment was dark. Stormy. Slowly, we swayed. His thighs brushed mine. The buckle on his belt grazed my stomach. Heat from his neck, and his soft hair brushed my wrists locked at the back of his head.
I looked up.
His arms drew me closer. Conflicting sensations both taunting and frightening weaved through my body. Please don’t end, song. Please.

His hands slid up along my shoulder blades, to my neck, finally cupping my cheeks. The air around us seemed unseasonably hot, but that was impossible. Our breaths plumed in unison. His brows drew tight over determined, fierce eyes.
