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:

Michael Merrick from Elemental and Storm by Brigid Kemmerer


Status: Michael is the oldest Merrick brother and he is able to control the element of earth.

Age: 23


Eyes: Brown

Hair: Dark

More info: As the older brother, Michael is responsible for his brothers who can definitely be a handful. He can seem like a jerk sometimes but only because he is afraid something might happen to his brothers. He's definitely overprotective. You have to read Elemental to understand why he acts the way he does

"This guy looked like he woke up in the morning and didn’t give a crap. His hair was longer, pulled into a haphazard ponytail, his tee shirt faded and worn. Calling his jeans threadbare would be a compliment. She wasn’t surprised to see his feet were bare. His eyes—brown, not blue—narrowed."

“I know you think you’re alone, Michael, but you’re not. Your father and I love you. Your brothers
love you—”
He snorted. “Don’t be so sure about that. I caught the twins trying to write on my face with a Sharpie at three a.m. the other day.”

“I haven’t seen any of them.”
She stared up at him, holding his eyes. In that moment, she figured out what was behind all that anger and aggression: fear. Vulnerability. Her mom had called him a kid on the porch, and for the first time, Becca realized he wasn’t that much older than she was."

“This is bullshit. Michael is a huge pain in the ass, but he’s the closest thing to a parent I have left. He didn’t want us to go after Seth and Tyler the night they tore up Chris. He refuses to let us use our powers, then bitches about homework and forgets to sleep. He works twenty-four seven. He barely has time to make dinner, much less set a trap for someone. Self-defense, yeah, I’d buy it. But cold-blooded killer? No way.”

Actor: Taylor kitsch

So, what do you think?
Who's your book boyfriend this week?


  1. Now THAT is the Michael that was in my head!

    My book boyfriend is Chase Gamble by J. Lynn. It's an Adult read. Haven't read a YA boyfriend worthy this week.

  3. *le swoon* I love Taylor Kitsch!

    I'm so jealous of guys that can just roll out of bed and look HOT! I love the sound of Micheal's protectiveness for is brothers.

  4. Great pick! Chris is my book boyfriend this week - those Merrick boys are the best! Those pictures are a great fit for Michael! I can't wait to read more of this series – thank you for sharing! :)
