My Book Boyfriend

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme, hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader. It is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush including stats, a picture of what you imagine he looks like and some quotes from him that make you swoon.  If you are interested in participating please check out the My Book Boyfriend Introduction Page over at Missie's blog The Unread Reader.

This week my book boyfriend is:

Alex Wakeman from Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson


Status: Alex works for a mysterious military unit. He's Lila's brother best friend and her love interest.

Age: 21


Eyes: Blue

Hair: Dark Brown

More info: Alex is totally swoon-worthy. He's a great friend, He rides a red motorcycle.


"He was even more beautiful than I had remembered. His tanned face and ice-blue eyes made my stomach lurch violently. I grabbed the banister with one hand to stop myself from falling again."

"Alex paused. "I want you to be happy and I want you to be safe." he said finally.
"I'm both those things with you."

"I felt his other hand sear hot against my cheek. He bent his head and in a voice that Jack coudn't hear, said, "When you came down the stairs, and fell into me, that was the moment." Then his lips pressed agaisnt mine."

"As though he sensed me stufying him, Alex turned then walked around to my seid eof the car. He put his arms around me and I sank my head agaisnt his chest, feelign some of the anxiety immediately fade away. He lifted me up and rested me on the bonnet of the car and we stayed like that for a while, me cocooned in his arms with the sun slowly warming us."

Actor Jensen Ackles

Someone said Jensen would be a great Alex and I couldn't unsee it anymore!
