Valentine's Day Special ~ Book Boyfriend Battle

Welcome, fangirls and fanboys, to my Valentine's Day special post...

There are so many truly amazing YA books with h-h-hot fictional guys - how is a bookworm supposed to choose just one as their book boyfriend?! 

So in the spirit of Valentine's Day, I'm going to help you guys pick your book boyfriends by placing a few of my faves in the 'Arena Of Love' and having them fight it out. 

About the 'Arena Of Love'

There are six rounds.
Each round includes two fictional guys who are of similar character/hotness/awesomeness.
Each guy will be given a swoon-worthy quote as his weapon.

Then after you've watched them battle it out, you decide who won by letting me know in the comment's section who you thought emerged victorious from each round.

So without further ado...let's get started!

These two paranormal bad boys have a lot in common - good looks, big hearts, & sarcasm for days. 

Daemon Black

Appears in: The Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
One-sentence summary: Hot, sarcastic-as-hell alien dude (Luxen)
Physical description: dark hair, emerald green eyes with dark eyelashes, tan skin. Has been noted to have a 'well defined chest'
Likes: kittens and cookies

His weapon/swoon-worthy quote: 

So I was thinking, there're eighty-six thousand, four hundred seconds in a day, right? There're one thousand, four hundred and forty minutes in a day...There're one hundred and sixty-eight hours in a week. Around eighty-seven hundred and then some hours in a year, and you know what?...I want to spend every second, every minute, every hour with you...I want a year's worth of seconds and minutes with you. I want a decade's worth of hours, so many that I can't add them up.”

Adrian Ivashkov

    Appears in: The Vampire Academy series & Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead

His weapon/swoon-worthy quote: 

"When I’m around you, I want to be better because… well, because it feels right. Because I want to. You make me want to become something greater than myself. I want to excel. You inspire me in every act, every word, every glance. I look at you, and you’re like… like light made into flesh. […] You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine.”     

It's the battle of the demon dudes! They may be demon-spawn, but deep down these two guys have hearts of gold.

His weapon/swoon-worthy quote:

"Was there ever a more beautiful sound than your name? To speak it aloud makes my heart ring like a bell. Strange to imagine that, isn’t it – a heart ringing – but when you touch me that is what it is like: as if my heart is ringing in my chest and the sound shivers down my veins and splinters my bones with joy.

(...) You are not the last dream of my soul.  You are the first dream, the only dream I ever was unable to stop myself from dreaming. You are the first dream of my soul, and from that dream I hope will come all other dreams, a lifetime’s worth."

(...) Both hands find my waist and drag me off the table so we're standing toe to toe. "I'm not wasting another second drawing you," he whispers against my lips, "when I can touch you instead." He presses his mouth to mine.

These two fictional heartthrobs have undergone many trials and struggles in order to love freely and be loved in return.

Which book boyfriends would you add to the list?

Let me know below & have a wonderful Valentine's Day!


  1. Blogger may show repetition in some areas and/or other faults (due to the amount of content on the screen & loading time). If things look weird/aren't loading, refreshing the page may do the trick! <3

  2. I can not possibly choose between Daemon and Adrian! They are two of my favorites ever and I can't decide! I'm familiar with all of the other ones, but out of the ones I do know, Seth FOREVER over Aiden, and Warner over everyone!

    1. I'm definitely a Warner fangirl! And it is a hard choice, especially since they're all so amazing <3

  3. I couldn't possibly choose between some of these! Like Aiden and Seth, Will and Jace, and Adrian and Daemon! I think Aaron is definitely better than Patch :) Awesome post!

    Laura @BlueEyeBooks

    1. Thank you! Some of those pairings are really hard to choose between...maybe we can just pick both?! :)

  4. I'VE NEVER SEEN SUCH A POST LIKE THIS HAHA GREAT JOB, LOVED IT SO MUCH. I'm for Jace!! :) Although, it was hard to choose! Most of them look really handsome ajdsf;

    Jillian @ Jillian's Books

    1. I'm so glad you liked it! And you're so right, they're all handsome lads, it's true ;)

  5. I've loved so many of these characters for a long time, but I will always vote for Flynn. He just has that special place in my heart! And I must say, this is one of the most awesome posts I've seen in a long time. I plan to share it lots so more can come and check it out!! :)

    1. Thank you so much! And Flynn is definitely one of my fave YA boys, too <3

  6. Adrian,Morpheus,Will and Warner are my winners. And overall I would have to choose Adrian. He has been with me the longest.
