This is a meme created by Reading and Things for bloggers to talk about there book boyfriends and tease the readers with things they've said.

Want to participate?

Then all you have to do is:

1) Pick a book boyfriend, it can be from the book your currently reading or from one you've already read.
2) Write what kind of boyfriend he is, and if you want, say why you think that.
3) Pick a quote from his book, long or short, that proves he is the kind of boyfriend you said he is.
4) Make sure the quote, and the explanation DO NOT give away anything from the book (we want all of the twists and plot surprises to remain surprises).
5) Share it! And shout it out using the #Reading and Things.

My Book Boyfriend this week is:

Jackson (Jacks) Godspeed

Jackson is gorgeous, sexy, sweet...
and an angel (my favorite type of paranormal being)
What's not to love?

Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them.

He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect - everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.

Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat & and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.

Here's a little Taste:

"Self-preservation!" Maddy screamed. The words rushed out of her as if some internal dam had  finally broken. "Don't you get it? I have to keep myself away from you so I don't get sucked into the illusion that you might actually like me," she said, water dripping off her lips. "I can't let myself believe you actually have feelings for me, Jacks. If I do that, I'll wake up one day and realize that you're a famous Angel and I'm... I'm Nobody." She felt a lump rising in her throat and swallowed it down hard. She wasn't going to let him see her cry. "My life hasn't been easy like yours, Jacks. Things like this don't happen for me. So, I've just learned it's easier to push them away."

Jacks stared, astonished, through the downpour. "You have to keep away from me? I have to fight to keep away from you. Do you have any idea how hard this has been for me? I meet you one night, and just like that, I can't get you out of my head. When our hands touched, and I saw this... streak of beauty in your eyes... I'd never felt anything like that before, nothing even close." He began to pace furiously, the rain flicking off him as he went. "All of a sudden, every fiber of my being is drawn to you, to be with you, and I don't know why," He stopped and pointed an accusing finger at her. "I didn't ask for this. But I felt something in that back room with you, and it's stayed with me ever since. I want to be with you. I need to be with you."
