After dealing with the aftermath of her parents’ deaths, then becoming a teenage mom, she knows the meaning of responsibility. Which is why, at twenty-two, she’s looking for so much more than a party boy. She’s looking for someone who can stand by her and her daughter…forever.A relationship between them is doomed from the start, but who says they can’t have a little fun? But as Jason gets closer to Tessa—and her daughter—fun starts to turn into something else… Something Jason’s not sure he’s ready for.
You all know that book boyfriends are one of our favorite things around. We love talking about them, fighting over them and yes… falling for them. Brighton Walsh has written some of my absolute favorites… I mean JASON good lord that man is fictional perfection. So when I had the opportunity to have Brighton write us something, I jumped on the opportunity to find out her recipe for the perfect book boyfriend… You’re welcome!
One Serving of Piping Hot Book Boyfriend
In the book world, generally where one reader loves something, another will hate it. It’s just the way things are—we all like what we like and sometimes that opposes another. But one of the things readers seem to agree on with my books are the boys. They like them. Readers say they’re swoony and sexy and oh-so-hot while still being realistic. And it doesn’t hurt that they’ve got muscles to spare. So how do I continue to make these perfect book boyfriends even though they’re all very different?
I present to you: My Book Boyfriend Recipe
To make a book boyfriend, start with a heaping dose of muscles. Seriously, it all starts with the muscles. Since everyone likes their muscles in different doses, add what you prefer (for a runner’s physique, like Jason from Tessa Ever After, add 3 parts muscles; for a linebacker’s, like Cade from Caged in Winter and Ghost from Captive, add 5). Toss in a bunch of height (6-foot-something worth) and mix with a crapton of good looks—like the hottest guy you’ve ever seen in your life times 20. That still won’t be as hot as your book boyfriend will be.
Once those are mixed well, you’ll notice your book boyfriend is starting to form! But don’t stop now…everything thus far is superficial. Now comes the good part—all the stuff on the inside that makes you swoon and sigh and flutter. Add in some humor (to make you laugh when you’re having a bad day), intelligence (so you can hold compelling conversations), a dollop of sensitivity (so he doesn’t ask you if you’re on the rag when you’re crabby, and he takes your feelings into consideration), and a dash of alpha tendencies (enough so he’s protective and maybe a little possessive, and he also knows how to take control. You’ll want to add more if you like your book boyfriends more hole than alpha). Then sprinkle some romance over everything (so he remembers your favorite flower and makes you dinner when you’ve had a shit day) and stir.
Almost done! But don’t forget one of the most important parts: a very large package and the skills to use it. (I think this is pretty self-explanatory…)
And there you have it! The recipe for the perfect book boyfriend. Who was your latest book boyfriend?
I want you to fall for Jason just like I did … so I’m giving a copy away!
