Book Boyfriend of the Week:
My very first book boyfriend comes from Mystery Falls by yours truly (Marilyn Phillips).
I felt I had to put Shadow first on the list since I was the one who created him.
What kind of a book boyfriend is he? He's gorgeous (picture Ian Somerhalder and you won't be too far off the mark), sexy, arrogant, egotistical, annoying, conceited and crazy in love with Samantha. There isn't anything he wouldn't do to keep her safe and away from the dangers which threaten her life.

Book Description:

Secrets. Lies. Deception. For the past six years, Samantha Hunt has lived with the belief that the untimely death of her parents was the result of an unfortunate accident—that by the cruel hand of fate, she had been left an orphan. But it was a lie, a terrible lie told to her by those who wanted to keep her in the dark. And the truth... when revealed, will change her life and haunt her forever.

Suddenly plagued by a series of events which find her in danger and in need of a savior, Samantha is repeatedly rescued by the mysterious and elusive Shadow—a stranger who seems to know more about her past and the tragedy which befell her family, than she does. Drawn to him despite the antagonism she feels whenever in his presence, Samantha soon discovers that Shadow is not what he appears to be. Determined to learn his true identity and why he has come to Mystery Falls, the small town in which she has spent all of her seventeen years, Samantha not only uncovers the secrets he refuses to share, but also the truth about her own past. A truth which forces her to acknowledge that things are not always as they seem, and sometimes, not even those close to you can be trusted.

Resolved to seeking justice for the unwarranted death of her parents, Samantha embarks on a journey which brings her perilously close to her own demise. Can Shadow use his angel powers to save her yet again, or this time, will he be too late.


(Samantha talking to Shadow)

"You're arrogant, egotistical, annoying, conceited and self centered..." unbelievably gorgeous, incredibly sexy and right now, I wish you would stop talking and just kiss me.

The last part Samantha added in my head.

(And in a later scene)

Smiling down at me with complete adoration, he whispered, "I love you. And Because I love you, I will do whatever it takes to keep you safe."
