Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fab ladies at The Broke and the Bookish!

1.  Lucas from Devoured by Emily Snow is my #1 book boyfriend -- rock star extraordinaire and so, so good.

2.  There is something so endearing about Marcus Flutie from the Jessica Darling series.  I liked him from the first page he appeared on and continuing throughout the series.

3.  I absolutely love The Troubleshooter series by Suzanne Brockmann about SEAL Team Sixteen but Ken "WildCard" Karmody from Out of Control takes hero/nerd to a new level.

4.  Daemon from The Lux series by JLA is indescribable. His relationship with Kat in the last book, Opal, made me melt! Aliens can totally be hot!

5.  Matt from Flat-Out Love is so strong and yet tender in this book -- and he's pretty much the best brother ever. 

6.  Darcy (in any incarnation) is always going to make this list.  I particularly love the Darcy in Bridget Jones's Diary because he's a lawyer (like me), he saves the day in a way that he is not looking for acknowledgement, he's sensitive, and absolutely proud.

7.  Camden from Sins & Needles by Karina Halle is so bad that he's good.  I am not typically into tattoos but there was something so raw about Camden and his art that still leaves me reeling.

8.  Ethan from the Chicagoland Vampire series by Chloe Neill is a vampire, a viking and absolutely, 100% charming, endearing and HOT.

9.  Seth from the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead is the ultimate hot nerd -- he's a writer and such a good boyfriend (even though his girlfriend is a sneaky succubus!).  Love him!

10.  Detective Marc Chastain from Linda Howard's Kill and Tell is probably my favorite Linda Howard hero.  Not only is he a native of New Orleans (one of my favorite places on earth!) but he is also a good cop, a loyal friend and one hot, hot hero.


  1. That's a great list! I would definitely crush on Mark Darcy. Lucas seems likd good bf material too. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I think Devoured is totally underrated and I cannot wait for the second book!

  2. I just bought the first book in the Lux series. I can't wait to meet Daemon!! Great list. Here is my TTT:

    1. Oh you will LOVE it! My favorite YA series definitely!!

  3. SETH! I forgot about Seth! And I ADORED him! Yay another fan of the Georgina series! Daemon also made my list. He's so swoon-worthy and I agree Opal made me melt! I really need to read the Jessica Darling series because everyone loves Marcus!

  10. I've been meaning to read Devoured, but haven't had a chance. Oh no...I'm intrigued with Det. Marc, but my own crush on Det. Archie Sheridan from Chelsea Cain's book series is telling me right now not to check Howard's book (ah he's jealous. LOL). ;)

    Thanks for stopping by Literary, etc! :)

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
