I gave myself a birthday gift recently – a post with some of my favorite swoon worthy fictional characters.
We had a blast reading the series, swooning, loving, hating, and swooning (did I say that already?). Things got “playfully heated” and there was a threat of blackmail, “I’m not sharing anymore”, “how dare you!”, begging, and some SHOUTY CAPS. How lucky am I to have found people who feel so passionately about the characters in the books they read?
I made a promise they would each have their own post– Kristin & Chrissy, this one’s for you!!
I will start by saying that I am Team Reed.
Are there only two teams?
This, THIS is our angel, Reed!
<– Look familiar??
–Charcoal gray wings that SNAP open in response to Evie’s wings. IT’S SO HOT! The way all these angel’s wings involuntarily communicate with one another, I swear it’s better than any sex scene you could read. Wait! I’m forgetting about the shower in book #4. More on that later.
–Primal growls that are so animalistic in nature, a contrast to this divine & fine (Oh, I rhyme!) angel.
— Speaks Angel and it’s beautiful, musical. No Earthly language has the proper words to describe Reed’s love for his girl!! Hell yea!
— Lightning fast, can crush stone in his hand, wings, rippling perfect muscles, wings, bares the symbol of Evie on his chest!, wings, he is so cocky that I cannot help but believe that he is indeed the best at everything.
When my crush turned into stalker mode and Jace Wayland (Mortal Instruments) no longer existed:
Reed and Evie are driving in the car. He is overwhelmed with the need for Evie to know the real him. He carries Evie (lightning fast speed) to his bedroom and shows her his wings. She touches them and they twitch in response to her fingers. SO HOT!
***She also finds a sculpture that he made OF HER on his bedside table. (Does he sit and stare at it when he is in bed? How long does he stare at it? What goes through his mind?)***
WE NEED ANOTHER PIC!
Ah, that’s better. Moving on…
When I completely lost my sh*t:
Training with Zee, Russell, Reed, and Evie.
Normally Reed is kept out of the training room. He can’t handle watching Evie sparing with Zee, the other Power angel. Reed decides to see “what Evie can do” ( Evie is half angel, fast, and can hold her own). They are sparing. Evie is running on the walls and jumping off things coming within inches of Reed with knives. He is so impressed – BEYOND THAT—this Power angel is so crazed turned on that he throws his weapons to the floor and catches Evie midair.
When fiction and reality blurred and I hated my hottie husband for not being Reed:
Book #4 INCENDIARY — REED’S POINT OF VIEW, first person ( meaning that the voice you are reading is Reed’s. Inside his head, his thoughts.) HUGE battle is over for now. Evie almost died. Evil Brennus almost took Evie again. Well folks, it makes for one hot, I almost lost you, let’s have sex moment. But, that’s not what did it for me. In the shower, Reed speaks to Evie’s soul in angel. Telling her soul that he knows it belongs to Russell… but he’ll wait an eternity and some day all of Evie will be his.
(I might have put my own spin on that!? Basically, that is what happened)
*deep breath* & *wipes tears* & *God, please make Reed real*
His wings were also spread during this – ruffling and twitching and so were hers. Then he tells her, “I can’t be gentle”… she’s all, “just touch me”… and the tile is cracking.
Up next– Xavier. Check back tomorrow!!
