My Book Boyfriend (1)

My Book Boyfriend is hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader. Thanks to this meme we now get to gush over some of our favorite "Book Boyfriends", on a weekly basis :) Want to participate? Well head on over to Missie's blog and link up your post! Don't forget to include some stats, a picture of what you imagine your book boyfriend looks like and some swoon worthy quotes!

My pick this week:
Etienne St. Clair

Portrayed by Pierre Boulanger

Sooo... I'm in love with a fictional character, and his name is Etienne St. Clair! You see, there’s this awesome little book called Anna and the French Kiss…and I think everyone should read it. Why you may ask? Well there are many reason, but mainly because of this gorgeous English French American masterpiece;

Quick stats:
-Bilingual; fluent in both French and English.
-BIG brown beautiful eyes, they’re described as weapons against the female race.
-Perfectly shaped lips hiding white teeth, with a twinge of imperfection.
-Dark brown and messy hair. Somehow it’s both long and short at the same time. It’s artist hair.

Etienne’s dark eyes search mine. “What are we doing?” His voice is strained. He’s so beautiful, so perfect. I’m dizzy. My heart pounds, my pulse races. I tilt my face toward his, and he answers with an identical slow tilt toward mine.

He closes his eyes. Our lips brush lightly.
“If you ask me to kiss you, I will,” he says.
His fingers stroke the inside of my wrists, and I burst into flames.
“Kiss me,” I say.
He does.

We are kissing like crazy. Like our lives depend on it. His tongue slips inside my mouth, gentle but demanding, and it’s nothing like I’ve ever experienced, and I suddenly understand why people describe kissing as melting because every square inch of my body dissolves into his.

"I'm sorry," he says.
"What? Why?"
"You're fixing everything I set down." He nods at my hands, which are readjusting the elephant. "It wasn't polite of me to come in and start touching your things."
"Oh, it's okay," I say quickly, letting go of the figurine. "You can touch anything of mine you want."
He freezes. A funny look runs across his face before I realize what I've said. I didn't mean it like that.
Not that that would be so bad."

He takes my hands into his.Those perfect hands, that fit mine just so. “Anna?” Our foreheads touch. “Yes?”
“Will you please tell me you love me? I’m dying here.”

"For the two of us, home isn't a place. It is a person. And we are finally home."

What do you think? yey or ney? Isn't he gorgeous?! Oh and just thought I'd mention that Pierre is actually French.... like, in real life :)haaaa! *swoon*!

Who's your book boyfriend?


  1. Omg! I didn't know this meme existed, so thanks for pointing it out! I am TOTALLY going to do it next week.

    And OMG GIRL. I FREAKING LOVE St. Clair! If only he were real...SIGH <333

  3. Sqqueee! he soo cute! :D I haven't read the book yet. I really need to! :D

  4. Sorry, but Etienne is MIIIIIIIIIIIINE. All mine. :D
    I am totally obsessed with him at the moment. I just saw Pierre Boulanger in Monte Carlo last week, how gorgeous is he?! When I saw him I thought he'd make a great Etienne (though I'd already read it and pictured Tom Sturridge). Awesome pick (even though he's still mine).

  5. I so need to read this book. Its sitting on myself waiting. Great pick :) Donna

  6. LOL
    I'm finally starting on Anna this weekend, so I won't be fighting over Etienne just yet.

    But I do love the quotes you put on him :D

  7. OMG, St. Claire is my hugest lit crush of all time!! That boy is sure something special. :) I love all the quotes you added. He's so... *sigh*

  8. Absolutely, breathtakingly gorgeous! That gif is killing me! It looks like he is desperate to get to me but something is holding him back.

    Believe me, if Etienne looks like that, he wouldn't have to ask me to tell him I love him! I'd shout it from the Eiffel Tower. LOL

    Awesome, swoon worthy choice.

  9. Belle- hahahahahahaaaaa! YESS!! OMG I thought the exact same thing when watching Monte Carlo :) I was like, "Damn! That boy would make a perfect St. Clair... I'm going to use him for my book boyfriend post!" :)haha! Even when I'm not blogging, I'm thinking of the blogosphere... I'm an addict!

    Missie- Isn't the gif awesome? Found it on a fan-site and stole it for myself :)haha!

  10. Yey! Yey! YEY! I am sooo not ney to this :) So, this is the guy in Anna and the French Kiss?!? Boy have I been missing out... must read that soon!! The quotes are gorgeous, Anna is a lucky girl *Sigh* I thought the guy in the third picture looked familiar, doesn't he play in Monte Carlo? (I want to see that movie so bad too!) Thanks for sharing your crush with us readers *cough* competetors! (jk)

    P.S. I looked at the description for The Unwritten Rule and you are right... I must read it!

  11. Im sorry lady, but you will be fighting me and Belle for a LONG time for darling Mr. Etienne :D he is MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE ALLLLLL MINE...got it? good. lol

  16. I like your book boyfriend. I haven't read Anna and the French Kiss yet, but it's on my list. Until then I'll think of Pierre Boulanger as my Vincent Pierre Henri Delacroix (love that name) from Amy Plum's Die for Me.
