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 for this week is:


I first learnt about Reed when I came across a deleted seen from Inescapable by Amy A. Bartol. Instantly intrigued by his dark good looks, his strong character and the way he interacted with Evie, I entered a competition and won the first book in The Premonition series. Needless to say, I became completely hooked.

My name is Evie Claremont and this was to be the making of me--my freshman year of college. I had been hoping that once I had arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that I've been having would go away. It hasn't.

I may be an inexperienced seventeen-year-old, but I'm grounded...sane. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he is near, I feel an attraction to him--a magnetic kind of force pulling me towards him. I know what you're thinking...that sounds fairly awesome. Yeah, it would--if he liked me, but Reed acts as if I'm the worst thing that's ever happened to Crestwood...or him. But, get this, for some reason every time I turn around he's there, barging into my life.

What is the secret he is keeping from me? I'm hoping that it is anything but what I expect: that he is not exactly normal...and neither am I. So maybe Crestwood won't be the making of me, but it could be the breaking of me. I have been left to wonder if the dark future my dream is foretelling is...inescapable.

Here's a little taste:
(The moment when Reed finally confesses his true feelings for Evie - I absolutely love this scene)

"Genevieve, what if I told you that you're not the only one who feels the fluttering, weightless feeling in here," he says, indicating his abdomen, "when we're together."

My heart leaps in my chest as I search his face for signs that he's teasing me, but he appears absolutely serious.

Looking grim, he adds, "That day at orientation, I felt you before I saw you, and then I saw you, and I knew that you are... and I wanted to... you don't want to hear this."

"No, this is exactly what I need to hear from you," I say anxiously.

His eyes narrow, "I wanted to destroy you," he says, and a shiver goes through me, "and I wanted to take you in my arms and love you, and I wanted to tear you apart, and I wanted to crush anything that would harm you, all at the same time."

"Have you felt this way before... this pull toward someone else?" I wonder aloud, not completely understanding what he has told me.

"Never," Reed says forcefully.

"Never?" I ask, and he growls in response.
