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:

Hector Delos from Starcrossed and Dreamless by Josephine Angelini



Status: Hector is a Scion able to breathe under water. He's an amazing fighter and Lucas cousin. He's extremely strong-willed.


Height: Tall

Eyes: Blue

Hair: Curly, blonde hair

More info: Hector gives the best hugs ever! He loves to fight, is fun and always says what's on hi mind. He loves his family more than anything


"She spun around and had to tilt her head almost all the way back to find the face above the enormous male chest that confronted her. Under golden curls, bright blue eyes drilled down into Helen's.
It crossed her mind that he looked like a blond version of
Michelangelo's Adam on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, newly released from plaster and walking around in three gigantic dimensions."

"And just so you know, I'm not about to apologize for making sure you don't get kidnapped by one of those batty women running around the island"

Helen was out front, jumping into Hector’s arms along with Kate, in about half a second.
Hector picked up both of them easily, one girl to an arm. Although it usually took Hector about five minutes to say something that annoyed the bejeezus out of Helen, when he smiled and held out his arms for a hug she forgot how
much of a pain in the ass he usually was. Hanging from Hector’s neck was like reaching up and hugging the sun—nothing but nurturing warmth and light.
“I could get used to this!” Hector chuckled, holding them both up in the air and squeezing them until they were breathless.

'"Because I've been trained to think tactically and find my opponents weaknesses since the day I was born."'

If you are wondering what I imagine Hector to look like, Josephine posted a picture of him that I think it's almost perfect. You can find it on her pinterest HERE.

 So, what do you think? Isn't Hector great?


  1. I have Starcrossed on my Kindle, but I haven't read it yet. It sounds like a fascinating concept with the whole Helen of Troy thing. Lovely quotes!
