Book Boyfriend of the Week #21 ~ Aiden St Delphi from The Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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.

This week I would like you to meet:

Aiden St. Delphi

Aiden is all kinds of yummy.
He is tall, dark, and incredibly good looking.
(Hot is putting it mildly)
He's intelligent, kind, considerate, caring, sweet and highly protective.
 And he is a total bad-ass when it comes to fighting daimons.

Teaser 1

“Hey,” I reached out and tapped the hand that rested next to my left leg. “you are--”

The hand that I tapped reached up and clasped mine. I froze as he threaded his finders through mine.“I’m what?”

Beautiful. Kind. Patient. Perfect. I said none of those things. Instead, I stared at his fingers, wondering if he knew he was holding my hand. “You’re always so….”

His thumb moved over the top of my hand. The balm made his fingers cool and smooth. “What?”

I looked up, and I was immediately snared. His stare, his soft touch along my hand was doing very strange things. I felt hot and dizzy, like I’d been out in the sun all day. All I could think about was how his hand felt on mine. Then, what his hand would feel like on other parts. I shouldn't be thinking that at all. Aiden was a pure.

Teaser 2 & 3

"Ever since I've met you, I've wanted to break every rule.” Aiden turned away, the muscles in his neck tensing. He sighed. “You’ll become the center of someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth.” 

* * *

Aiden grabbed my arm, pulling me right against his chest. The unexpected contact fried my brain. “If I was like every other pure-blood, I would have had you by now, without even thinking about the consequences for you. Every day is a struggle not to be like them.” 

Yeah, totally yummy?
