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:

Lucas Delos from Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini


Status: Lucas is a demigod and Helen's love interest.

Age: 17

Height: Over six feet

Eyes: Blue

Hair: Short and dark

More info: As a demigod Lucas is incredibly strong, plus he can fly! He can be really sweet, especially to Helen and it's nice seeing him interact with his large family.

"Lucas was standing in front of his locker about twenty feet away, staring back at Helen while the world waited for gravity to switch back on. He was tall, over six feet at least, and powerfully built, although his muscles were long and lean instead of bulky. He had short, black hair and a dark end-of-summer tan that brought out his white smile and his swimming-pool blue eyes."

"Do you want me at all or do you think its fun to tease me like this?" she asked feeling rejected and humiliated. "Wont you even kiss me?" she finally struggled on to her back where she could at least see his face.
"If i kiss you, i wont stop" he said in a desperate whisper as he propped himself up on his elbows to look her in the eye."

"I only have so much willpower Helen" he whispered "And since you apparently sleep in the most ridiculously transparent tank top i've ever seen, i'm going to have to ask you to get under the covers before i do something stupid"

“As soon as I think I'm in control you make me laugh or you say something so smart and I feel like I lose a bit of myself. I thought I was prepared, but this is much harder than I imagined."
Model Nic Balducci

So, what do you think? I couldn't seem to find the perfect Lucas but I think Nic Balducci is an acceptable choice.


  1. A Demigod? I'm intrigued. I like the banten between Lucas and Helene. Those quotes definitely make me swoon. And that model is really hot! :)

  2. i have this book in my que! can't wait to read it now!

  3. I actually just finally got my hands on a copy of this from the library. The wait list was massive! I hear it is really sweet and I can't wait to read it. It is always so hard to find someone to match the way we picture the character in our mind but I like your pics!

  5. I haven't read Starcrossed yet, but I think I'll be moving it up the to read list now!

  6. I'm really keen to read this book! Those pictures are gorgeous.

  7. Love the pictures and the drool-worthy passages! You picked a great book boyfriend :)

  8. Nick seems like a perfect demigod Lucas. He's strong and could fly, you might as well call him Super-demigod or something. But, I'm afraid, there's no such thing. And those lines make me swoon! I must read this book soon. Lovely BB!
