You all know how much I love romance in books. So Kari over at A Good Addiction has written up a list of the hottest guys in YA.
Who would you add to the list????
I’m taking over Suzanne’s Blog today to tell you guys about my Top Ten YA Boys. Keep in mind, this is based off books I’ve read… and debated. And did some more debating. And when I thought I had it, I debated some more and this is what I’m finalizing. In order, counting down to my number one hottie in YA:
10. Mason (The Lighter Side of Life and Death by CK Kelly Martin): Mason is sixteen. He snags a twenty-three year old (legal in Canada, mind you). That in itself is pretty BAMF to me. But beyond that, he’s attractive. He’s awkward at all the right places. He’s cocky and confident on the outside when he’s quivering on the inside. He’s sweet. He’s funny. He’s a great blend of mature and naïve. He might make me feel like a cougar.
9. Graves (Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow): Kinky. Tied up. Dom/sub. Out of context (maybe even in context), things like this make Graves awesome. He’s cute in an emo boy kind of way. He faces some pretty shocking things with Dru. And he comes out pretty on top, usually. He’s a wingman but a darn sexy one at that. He’s there when he needs to be, there when he doesn’t need to. He’s just there. And his personality and sense of humor are great. He’s much more on the sweet side. And I want him. Possibly on a leash…
8. Oscar (Everlasting by Angie Frazier): Sailor Boy. He’s intense in all the right ways. He’s got his sarcasm and he is great with the quips. Also, he’s downright sexy. Working on a ship all the time? That boy has muscles. And definition. And looks darn good with no shirt on. He’s a gentleman at the right times. He brings sexy to the working class. Did I mention he’s a sailor?
7. Doug (Forget You by Jennifer Echols): He’s been to juvie. Bad boy? Check. He gets mad over stupid things. Temper? Check. Heart broken at least once? Check. Doug is an enigma. Doug is the boy all the girls want to kiss but no one will admit to. Doug just might be a very great kisser. Doug is a loner which gives him an instant air of intrigue. Doug throws himself into situations and gets unsure when it doesn’t go like he imagined. Also, Doug is sexy. And a little coy. But mostly sexy.
6. Will (Firelight by Sophie Jordan): Sexy Man Musk Hunter Boy. As someone who’s life revolves around hunting Draki, the sexy bad boy is inherent. But then… we actually get to know him and holy crap this boy is a whirlwind of amazing. He fights against what he wants and what he has to do. He fights against what others ask of him. He might have some stalkerish tendencies. He might be downright sexy and tormented and adorable all rolled into one musky package. I might want to get close to that sexy man musk after a hunt. I might want to watch him hunt. Especially if that hunt means shirtless Will.
5. Lend (Paranormalcy by Kiersten White): Half-Water Boy. He is about as unique and original as characters come these days in the fantasy/supernatural YA genre. That in and of itself gives him a high level of hotness. Then we really meet him. And woo! This boy is something. Can I really describe him without giving much of the book away? Maybe not. But let’s just say this: pink cowboy boots. Lockers. Also, his ability could lend to some fantastic things… oh yes. This boy, truly, is the definition of all things sexy and manly and desirable. And oh so adorably awkward. More uncomfortable than cocky but Lend still has his moments. Sometimes I want to hug him. Sometimes I want to kiss him. Sometimes… well. You get it.
4. Jasper (Twilight by Stephenie Meyer): That’s right. I went there. Jasper was my first YA fangirl crush. Forget Edward and Jacob. I’ll take the Southern Gentleman. And okay yes, he may have tried to eat Bella just a little. But that wasn’t because he’s mean. Think about it- he loves Alice so deeply and unendingly that he suffers constantly with the vegetarian diet so they can live with the Cullens. I’ll take that kind of devotion any day. Not to mention, he’s an empath… and I have so many good uses of that. But we won't go there right now.
3. Alex (Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles): Alex is the epitome of sensitive bad boy. I admit it. He makes me want a Latino Gangbanger of my own. Seriously, when he slips into the English/Spanish mix? Oh good gracious. That just might beat my Southern Gent thing and that’s hard to do. Oh wait. It does beat it since Jasper is above this. Alex is just downright sexy. Built. Got the looks. Got the cocky attitude. But then you get under that and he’s sweet and loyal and does so much for his family. But did I mention he slips into Spanish at the most perfect and sexy of times?
2. Cameron (Delinquents by Suzanne Young): I’ve dubbed this hottie Coffee Pot Boy. Won't say why, but the reason is a good one. And it’s why he stole my heart. Okay there are more reasons but I am pretty sure at this point, I melted. A lot. And laughed. But mostly melted. Also, he is pretty much one of the most caring boys around. You want a sweet but still sexy and slightly bad boy guy? Cameron is it. I wouldn’t mind having a go in his Beamer…
1. Adrian (Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead): Sardonic playboy. Do I need to say anything else? I like the Southern Gents. I like the Latinos. But the sardonic boys…. They steal my heart above all else. He’s horny and has a pocketful of vices. He also has made the smell of cloves enticing. But he’s sweet. Sure, you have to look hard, and catch his eye for more than a bedroom romp, but Adrian is… amazing. Yeah, I’d let him drink me. Taboo or not. Admit it. You would too. Rawr.
Woo... I'm fanning myself! Thanks for the list, Kari!!
