February: Month of Love and Book Boyfriends - Day Twenty-Four: Blake

Day 24! Today's book boyfriend is:
Blake Hartt


Name/Book: Blake Hartt from Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia


Height: Around 6'1


Hair: Dark blonde

Physical Description/ First Appearance

"It was a simple human action she provided like clockwork, even to the homeless man always slumped under the overhang in the shade. His green eyes seemed to wait for hers without fail, but as soon as the smile reached her lips, his gaze scurried away like a frightened mouse. "


“No one has really seen me in years.” Blake looked at the sky. “Sometimes I wonder how they know I don’t have a home. I try to dress decently.” He waved a hand at his jeans and army jacket. “I think it just seeps out of me. I’m not the same as everyone else.” He shook his head, his eyes reflecting a weary despair. As he looked at Livia again, the despair was chased away with a grin. “But when you saw me for the first time, you actually saw me. You saw me, and then you smiled like I was just the same as everyone else on that platform.”


“Blake took her face in his hands. “You let me touch you. Kiss you. Your skin? It feels like piano keys. My hands know just where to go.”

"He moved to her earlobe and breathed, “First, I will blow, then I will lick, last I will bite.” Blake took his time blowing an elaborate pattern on her stomach, and Livia was pretty sure he’d spelled the word torture."


"She picked up the phone and dialed Blake's number. His silky hello made her smile. 
"You're smiling, right?" His voice was so intimate.
 "Of course," she murmured. "Does it still count if you don't see it?"
 "It counts when I feel it," he replied.”

Why He's a Great Book Boyfriend:

He counts Livia's smiles! He plays the piano and despite the difficult life he's had he can still appreciate the good things. He's extremely  sweet and romantic to Livia.



Blake is a good book boyfriend, isn't he?
I also really like Beckett and can't wait for his book. :)
