Top 10 of 2014: Best Book Boyfriends of 2014!

Top 10 of 2014 is a fun-filled yearly 5-day event we spend looking back at some of the best of all things books from 2014 and looking forward to those books in 2015 that we can’t wait for.

This event is hosted by Rachel @ Reading YA Rocks, Jaime @ Two Chicks on Books, Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads & Nancy @ Tales of a Ravenous Reader.

Today's theme is the one I always have trouble with, mainly because I rarely have a crush on book characters! So, as always, my list will be filled with guys I loved as characters, and that I loved them together as a couple a.k.a those that are one half of my fav couples this year. As always, this must be only from books both read in 2014 & released in 2014. This has been a great year for that, lots of amazing couples I totally adored, so it might just be over 10 this time ;)

Best Book Boyfriends of 2014:


~ Cole Holland from Gena Showalter's The Queen of Zombie Hearts
~ Kai, Wolf & Thorne from Marissa Meyer's Cress
~ Anthony Lockwood from Jonathan Stroud's The Whispering Skull
~ Bones from Jeaniene Frost's Up From the Grave
~ Thane from Gena Showalter's Burning Dawn
~ Torin from Gena Showalter's The Darkest Touch
~ Sam Brody from Jill Shalvis's It's in His Kiss
~ Angel Whittaker from Susan Mallery's When We Met
~ Levi from Elizabeth Eulberg's Better Off Friends
~ Josh from Stephanie Perkins' Isla and the Happily Ever After
~ Tristan from Danielle L. Jensen's Stolen Songbird
~ Matthew Clairmont from Deborah Harkness's The Book of Life

  ~ Giles Rutherford from Theresa Romain's Season for Desire
~ Chaz Browning from Leslie Kelly's Oh, Naughty Night!

Yes, I ended up with over 10 ;) I adore all of these characters. So amazing, for different reasons, and perfect for the ones they fall for :) I only feel weird about putting Anthony Lockwood, mostly because I feel like a perve lol But, he's so amazing, and ever since I met him in the 1st book, I love him as a character, and kept thinking, wow he'll be a heartbreaker when he grows up, and I would totally have a crush on him! ^_^ If I was in Lucy's place, I would totally jump him - ok, actually, I would only totally kiss him senseless, because they're still so young. But, I have hopes that as the series progresses & they get older, we'll get some romance, hopefully between Lucy & Anthony :) Then again, I'm really not in a hurry, I can wait for a long time, as long as there are many books in the series, because I don't want it to end.
And what about you? 
Leave me the link to your list today.


  1. I forgot about Wolf from Cress!

    1. I had such a crush on him in Scarlet, so I had to list him, too. ;) And now in Cress I finally see the appeal of Kai, so yes, all three for me, I just love them as characters :D

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I've read no other books from your list, but my TBR is HUGE so I'm sure if I dig a little deeper, I'll find these on 'em :)

  3. Oh yes to Josh, I loved his personality and he was my favorite boy out of the group!

    1. I don't know. I had such huge crushes on both Etienne & Cricket, and it's been years since I read those 2 books, so I can't quite choose. I didn't crush on Josh, though he is quite amazing, I loved him as a character, and I wonder if I reread the 2 books now, I will have a crush on them again. Probably not. I guess I've gotten too old for teenage boys, then again, I rarely have a crush ;) But, in the end, all of the 3 guys are quite amazing ^_^

      Thanks for stopping by, Missie.

  4. I loved Cole in books one and two - I need to read book three! I'm sure it was an amazing conclusion to the trilogy :D Fabulous list!

    Happy holidays :)

  5. I included Josh. Really loved Levi from Better Off Friends. I of course love Bones but didn't read the new book this year. I'm two books behind on his series.

    Best Book Boyfriends of 2014

    1. Yay for Josh & Levi :) As for the last 2 Night Huntress books, the series isn't what it once was, to be honest. I'd say, read the first 4 books, and stop. I'll always love Cat & Bones, and the last book was better than the previous 2, but I pretend that the last 3rd of book didn't happen, because there was a part of it that sucked, and I get annoyed with it every time I think about it, so I pretend it doesn't exist LOL Weird, I know ;)

      Thanks for stopping by, Jen!

  6. I am DEFINITELY buying Stolen Songbird today. It's been on so many lists! And it's $1.99! Excellent list!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Happy holidays :)
