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:

Patrick from Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler


Status: Patrick is the guy next door. He's a talented musician and Delilah's love interest and childhood friend.



Eyes: Honey Coloe

Hair: Brown

More info: Patrick loves Catcher in the Rye and helps out with his father's construction business. He has been accepted in college for music. :)

"His braces are gone now and he’s got six inches of height on me. The freckles of childhood have faded into smooth, tan skin, but otherwise, he’s still the same Little Ricky Reese. I mean, Patrick Reese."

"He lifts my chin until our eyes meet and his lips brush over mine, soft at first, dandelion seed blown against my mouth like a wish, and then... completely. Hungry. Suffocating and desperate and I don't want it to stop. I've never been kissed liked this before - not by Finn or the celebrity crushes in my head. Not even in my craziest dreams."

“Don't you ever see the bright side of things?" Patrick asks as I mope against the bottom of the ladder.
"Easy to see the bright side when you're getting paid by the hour."
"Delilah, I will gladly give you my fill wage plus a month's supply of your iced choco-nut whatever lattes if you trade places and clothes with my right now."
"You're not wearing a shirt."
"That's the deal, Hannaford," he says.”

"Doesn't matter how many people are in the crowd anymore, Delilah. Ten or ten thousand, I'm still only singing for one."

Model Arthur Sales

I have to confess I stole Arthur Sales from . He would be a great Patrick!
