My Book Boyfriend (77)

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.)

Alex Cole
Book: Destiny Binds by Tammy Blackwell
Series: Timber Wolves

He's a wolf shifter, with grey eyes that seem to glow and his smile reveals a pair if honest-to-goodness dimples. He has some very nice looking muscles peaking out of his t-shirt and is fairly tall, and chestnut colored hair. He's witty and has a great sense of humor, but when it comes to the girl that he loves, he will risk anything to protect her.


"But you took her to Homecoming."
"I just did that to make someone else jealous."
"Did it work?" What I was really asking was if he was dating someone else already, because nothing feels quite so good as pouring salt in an open wound.
"I didn't think so at first, but it looks like I might have been wrong."
It was not until the blush returned to his cheeks I even considered hoping that he was talking about me.

Alex's thumb traced along the edge of my cheekbone causing a shiver to run through me. "Don't worry. He's never going to touch you or anyone else again." His hand trailed down my face before resting on the back of my neck. I could hear him pull a deep breath into his lungs as he slowly licked his lips and inclined his head towards me.

"Why did you come back here, then? Why risk it? Couldn't you find a place where you wouldn't have any other Packs to deal with?"
He cupped my face in his hands, this thumb gently brushing a snowflake from my eyelashes. "You know why I came back."


  1. Awe. Now I'm feeling a little jealous! So then, is this series considered YA? I'll have to look it up to find out. Thanks, Amy!

    1. Yes, this is a YA series. I'm completely in love with the characters and I'm sure you will be too!
