This week my book boyfriend is:

Dell Conelly from Animal Attraction by Jill Shalvis


Status: Dell is a veterinary, who obviously, loves animals. He's Jade's love interest an boss!


Height: 6'2


Hair: Brown

More info: Dell is funny friendly. It's clear he's attraced to Jade but he doesn't do relationships. He's more the love them and leave them type.

" Dell braced himself, but all that delicious warm mocha skin of his—courtesy of his Native American mother—covered an impressive amount of tough testosterone and muscle. Still, even a six-foot-two, 180-pound veterinarian extraordinaire could be leveled by the freighttrain force of a chunky St. Bernard, and at impact Dell landed on his ass."

" Come on, baby,” he murmured. “Give it up for me. You know you want to.”
Jade Bennett did her best to ignore the way the low, sexy voice made her shiver. Besides, it wasn’t aimed at her. Dr. Dell Connelly— dog whisperer, cat whisperer, horse whisperer, and known woman whisperer— was talking to a stray kitten."

“He knew every bit as much as she that this shouldn’t happen. It was risking too much. Someone was going to get hurt.
Too late for that . . .
And in any case, he couldn’t let her go. In fact, his arms came around her and held on.
“Jade, what the hell am I going to do with you?”
“Are you as scared as I am?”
“Terrified,” he said. “Hold me.

"“You asked why I’m here,” he said against her lips. “It’s because you’re a part of my life, you’re a part of me, Jade, the most important part, actually, and have been since the day you walked into Sunshine.”
Jill Shalvis posted those pictures of Dell on her blog and now I can't imagine him as anyone else!

What about you? What do you think?Do you like Dell?
