Team Getsome Week-The Bad Boys

So bad for you.... and yet so irresistible. Especially when they have some demon blood. In our pursuit of the most exciting romances in YA, Novel Novice and I have been putting together a list based on our (and a few expert's) opinions. Today's focus.... THE BAD BOY.

I'm going to start with the sexiest bad boy. It was a TOUGH call (I accidentally wrote touch call, haha). It was a dead heat between Nick from THE DEMON'S LEXICON series by Sarah Rees Brennan and Jace from THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series by Cassandra Clare. And after thinking it over, I can't choose! It's a tie of hotness.



Nick is dark and brooding. Jace is blond (swoon!) and witty. Both guys are fighters and good with weapons. And seriously, if you haven't read either of these series YOU HAVE TO! They are excellent!

And I couldn't get out of this bad boy post without mentioning Alex from PERFECT CHEMISTRY by Simone Elkeles. His danger is contemporary, so he won't be fighting monsters... But hot damn, he is dangerous. The book is steamy off the charts and it's Alex's fierceness and loyalty--and okay, maybe the motorcycle, too--that gets him on this list.



Any bad boys you'd like to highlight? Be sure to check out Novel Novice's picks for today!

Team Nick FOR THE WIN!

And I'm not sure if he qualifies as a bad boy, but I think he might...Brigan from Kristin Cashore's FIRE. Yeah, he's royalty, but he's also the commander of the army and a total bad ass.

I think I'm gonna have to go with Nick :) I think I enjoy Jace more for his wit and bickering than his hotness lol. So Nick being the slightly sociopathic, extremely hot demon, wins :)
I consider Brigan more of a bad boy in the beginning. I haven't read Perfect Chemistry yet, but I've heard great things about it and the guy on the cover is pretty cute ;)
