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:

Matt Bowers from At Last by Jill Shalvis


Status: Matt is a forest ranger. He's laid back and easygoing but determined. He's Amy's love interest.
Age: 30-something

Height: Tall
Eyes: Light Brown

Hair: Dark

More info: Matt is a total Alpha Man. He´s strong and determined but he can also be quite sweet and caring. 

"He was tall, built and armed and dangerous, though not to her physical well.being. Nope, nothing about the tough, sinewy, gorgeous forest ranger was a threat to her body. Butt Matt Bowers was lethal to her peace of mind.

"He wore dark, wraparound Oakley sunglasses, but she happened to know that his eyes were light brown, sharp and missed nothing. Those eyes were in complete contrast with his smile, which was all laid-back and easygoing and said he was a pussy cat. That smile lied. Nohting about Matt Bowers was sweet and tame."

“I'm fine, go back to your job doing..." She waved her hand. "Whatever it is that forest rangers do, getting Yogi out of the trash, keeping the squirrels in line, etc..."
"Yogi and the squirrels do take up a lot of my time." he agreed mildly. "But no worries. I can still fit you in."
His voice always seemed to do something funny to her stomach. And lower. "Lucky me." 
"Yeah." He took another leisurely sip of his soda. "You might not know this, but on top of keeping Yogi in line and all the squirrel wrangling I do, rescuing fair maidens is also part of my job description." 

Amy: “The night I fell down the ravine. The night you shared your tent."
 Matt: "Which has been in heavy rotation in my fantasies ever since."
Amy: "You have some sort of rescue fetish, Ranger Hot Buns?"
Matt: "No, I have a pale blue panty fetish."
She let out a low laugh. 
Amy: "It was dark!"
Matt: "I have panty ex-ray vision. God-given talent."

"Im not here to solve your problems. I'm here to support you in your own decisions. I'm not going to walk away, Amy. Not now, not when the going gets tough, not ever. I'm right here at your back."
"For how long?"
"For as long als you'll want me. I love you, Amy."

So, what do you think of Matt?
