6.In your post provide a link back to this My Book Boyfriend introduction post so that other people can find the information about participating.

Well, I bet you could all guess who my Book Boyfriend would be this week. Of course it would be Ash from the Iron Fey Series of Julie Kagawa! He is absolutely to die for! I already decided that if they ever make a movie of this series Ben Barnes would be the perfect Ash! I am telling you the male characters in some of the books that I have read, give me unrealistic expectations in men! Well Meghan descripes the Ice Prince as follows:

"Up close, he was even more beautiful, with high cheekbones and dark tousled hair falling into his eyes..."

Here are some swoon worthy quotes from Ash that stuck with me. I haven't really written down any quotes before, guess I'll have to start from now on hey!

“You tell me. When I left the Nevernever, I didn’t have any plans other than being with you. If you want me around, just say the word.”

“Forgive me,” ... “But I can’t…I won’t…give her up. Not now, when I’ve just found her.”

“Please.” ...“I know what you must think of me, but…” The voice broke off, took a ragged breath. “Don’t leave,” it whispered. “Meghan, don’t go. Come back to me.”

O well... we can dream can't we? At least my REAL boyfriend is just as great! Lucky me!

Great post! I haven't read this series yet, but Ash does sound pretty dreamy based on your quotes ... also I'm pretty sure someone else chose Ben Barnes for her book boyfriend as well lol

I love the Winter Prince. When he danced with Meghan then threatened to kill her, I totally fell hard for him.

Great choice!

Lovely quotes and great choice!

Lisa said...

Ohhh...very swoon worthy. You picked some wonderful quotes. They just made me melt.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Yes, I agree... I do like Ash... but it looks like great minds thinks sorta like. I mean I picked the Iron Fae series, but not Ash... so I guess he is all yours! :)

Ben Barnes! I think he's so cute. He's definitely and Ash. I'm sure Ash will be on my list for future Book Boyfriends.
