It’s my party so I’ll do what I want to.
These swoon worthy fictional characters are in no particular order (not!)
Jace — Loving me some Jace from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. It has been years of comparing every badass bad boy I read about to Jace. What makes Jace so swoon worthy? Let’s start with the basics; He’s hot! Covered in Runes, wears Shadow Hunter gear, and he has angel blood which makes him Nephilim. Jace has more angel blood than the average Shadow Hunter that makes him faster and stronger. More than his overall hotness Jace has layers. Poor Jace. Raised by Valentine, orphaned at a young age, and in love with Clary who helps him break down some of the protective walls. Like Clary, I will forgive Jace any infraction. There is always a damn good reason for his behavior and sometimes I hate Clary for not understanding Jace the way I do.
Side note; Was anyone else terrified before they cast Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace in the movie City Of Bones? The way he says mundane in the trailer!!! *shivers* I was prepared to boycott the film until I saw the trailer. AND! What the hell? Jonathan Rhyn Meyers as Valentine??!! I am supposed to hate him. How is that possible now? Swo-oo-oo-on!! Is there anyone hotter on this planet? (The Tudors, August Rush…. yes, THAT guy.)
Will — He is NOT a badass and therefore NOT comparable to Jace. Will, from Slammed and Point Of Retreat by Colleen Hoover, is hands down my all time favorite swoon worthy guy. People, go buy these books. The relationship between Will and Layken is like none other. Will writes and performs Slam Poetry. At one point in the book Layken sneaks in to watch Will perform. This is the end of that poem, “Keep your ocean, I’ll take the Lake.” *tears* (Lake is Layken’s nickname). I cried and laughed and swooned and loved all the supporting characters. No exaggeration–I felt like a different person after reading these books. Colleen has a new book, Hopeless coming out.
Four — Yea, yea, I know his real name is Tobias. He will always be Four to me. From Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth. You’ve all read these books. No point in explaining why Four is on my list. Let’s take a moment of silence and relive the first time he took off his shirt in front of innocent Tris! Or threw the knife at her. Or showed her his simulation. Or watched helplessly as Tris got her ass kicked and refused to stay down during Dauntless training. Who’s Dauntless now, bitches!
Another side note; I loved these books more than The Hunger Games series. That brings me to my next swoon worthy hottie….
Gale — Yes, that’s right. Gale. NOT Peeta. Deal with it. My obsession was only made worse when Liam Hemsworth (Thor’s brother — “This human body needs subsidence.”….. I’ll give you some subsidence!!) was cast as Gale.
Jude — Have you read Crash and Clash by Nicole Williams? You are taken to the edge of what is forgivable with Jude. He lives in a boy’s home, his mother left him at a young age (Everyday he wears a beanie hat she made for him. Awww poor Jude), and his dad is in jail. A few times I was screaming at Lucy to cut him loose. Then she does right when he’s had an epiphany and starts to change his life around. I can’t list any spoilers here, but I want to so I can gush over what Lucy and Jude have overcome. No man has ever loved a woman the way Jude loves Lucy. Believe it! Book 3 is out on April 23rd 2013.
Travis — I have read Beautiful Disaster, by Jamie McGuire, three times now. I will never get enough of Travis. Book two, Walking Disaster is coming out soon! EEEEEE!
Patch — He’s a fallen angel, folks! Enough said! Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick is dark, scary at times, and there is also Nora’s Nephilim bloodline. Did someone say Nephilim? ( I ❤ Jace!) Anyone else buy the first book based on the AMAZING cover of Hush, Hush? Click on Patch and there’s a link to Goodreads.
John — I am huge into scifi. John Smith is an alien sent to Earth to hide with ten other children numbered one to ten. One – Three are dead. John is number four and he is next. He knows he is part of a group that will save their planet, but he also wants to be a normal teenage boy. Oh, and he has Superman-ish abilities. Can’t forget that! I devoured I Am Number 4 and The Power Of Six. The movie didn’t have anything on the books! The action that is. NOT the love triangle.
Trick — Never in my life have I swooned over one line in a book like I did with The Wild Ones by M. Leighton. Patrick (Trick) delivers a single line to Camie in the horse stables, and you pray they’ve given up trying to stay away from each other. I had to set down my Kindle and compose myself. I have the line memorized, of course, but you will have to read it. PLEASE come back and message me about this book so we can swoon together!
Malachi — Head guard of the Shadow Lands, described by the author as having “deadly efficiency” (hell yea!), and willing to give up freedom to save Lela. Not that she needs saving. Lela is as badass as Malachi! Sanctum by Sarah Fine is an excellent book. I could not put it down.
Eran — SWOON!! So I might have a thing for angels and/or dead people. The Guardian Trilogy by Laury Falter were three books I read back to back to back. Eran is Maggie’s guardian angel and they have history. Hundreds of years of history together. Only Maggie doesn’t remember. There are major battles and when Eran expands his wings! Oh, swoooon. I’m all — It’s going down now! *Also possible in the air, clothes ripping off, wings fluttering sex.* SO HOT!
Cage, Preston, Jax — All these swoon worthy guys are from Abbi Glines’ Sea Breeze series. Where do I start?
Preston from Just for Now. I started off the book hating Preston. Then, THEN I find out why he is so guarded and wounded and oh, God… feels he isn’t good enough for Manda.
Jax from Breathe is a rock star spending the summer at his house on the ocean. Sadie is working at his home. She is not impressed with Jax the superstar, but loves Jax the boy (me too!). He also sings Bon Jovi to her. I think that’s an official double swoon.
Cage — Swoon, Swoon, SWOON! Baseball player Cage from While It Lasts is stuck working on a farm for his coach’s brother. Playboy turned sweaty farm boy with no shirt on. More please! Eva is the off-limits farmer’s daughter who is jealous of Low, Cage’s female BFF. I didn’t read the Sea Breeze series in order. My bad. As a result I haven’t read Because Of Low, well, because of Low. My friends tell me Cage and Low have a beautiful friendship and she doesn’t break Cage’s heart. I will read it eventually. I’m not ready yet.
Will — From the Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare. He is so much like Jace that I compared the two constantly. Unfortunately, Will came up short. Doesn’t make him not swoon worthy. Will is also a Shadow Hunter and his BFF Jem, is swoon worthy as well. I am a little scared to read book three. Will Jem die?
Duncan — Here’s where I reveal how much I get my geek on… Firebreather is a comic book published by Image Comics (Spawn!) and yes, I swooned over an animated character. What can I say? He breaths fire. Duncan is half human and half dragon. I also own a Marvel and DC Comics Encyclopedia. And a cat named Logan.
All the names have links to Goodreads.com I’m on there too. Send me a friend’s request. Does anyone have a fictional swoon worthy guy to add?
