My Book Boyfriend (4)

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:
From- Angelfire by Courtney A. Moulton

There was a lot of mystery to Will, the Guardian, in Angelfire. I'll be honest, I often times found myself annoyed with Will for purposely holding back information from Ellie in regards to her ancient warrior powers... But then later on in the novel you find out his reasons why and everything he does for Ellie…. *sigh*. I need to find myself a Will.But for now, my mental representation of him, portrayed by Matthias Lauridsen, will have to do <3

-Tall, maybe six feet, and broad shouldered.
-Bright green eyes.
-His hair looks black, until caught in the sun, it reveals a more walnut color.
-Twenty or twenty-one years old.
- Black, spiraling tattoos all up and down his muscled arm.  

"...he gave me a quiet smile, one that amplified the gentle contours of his face, the curve of his lips, the little line beside his right eye that appeared when he smiled."

Favorite Scenes/Swoon-worthy quotes:
"And everytime you die, a little piece of me dies with you.” -Will to Ellie

“He reached forward to cup my cheek, the touch surprising me. "Please understand that no matter what I am or what has happened in the past, I am yours. I am devoted to you above all else, including my own life." -Will to Ellie

“As I swung a third time, he grabbed my wrist. "That's enough hitting," he growled. "You don't exactly hit like a girl, you know.”  -Will to Elli

“I have a ninja sitting shotgun. Of course, I'm tense.”  -Ellie referring to Will

"Ellie, you need to understand," he said softly. "I exist only to serve you and fight by your side. Whether that fighting is to preserve your life or to make sure you smile, that is what I am built to do. You're all I have, and I will watch over you forever.” -Will to Elli

Have you read Angelfire? Wasn't Will just, magnificent?! What do you think of Matthias Lauridsen as Will? Share your comments below!

I still haven't had the chance to pick up WINGS OF THE WICKED (book 2) but hopefully that changes and soon! I think a re-read of Angelfire should do me some good ;) Thanks for stopping by!
