My Book Boyfriend 4/18 Jake Kelley


My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader.

This week My Book Boyfriend is Jake Kelley from the Brenna Blixen Series by Liz Reinhardt. Jake is a total sweetheart. I immediately fell in love with Jake's character when I met him. If you haven't read the series, Jake is one of two boys that Brenna finds herself attracted to. Both boys are *swoon worthy*, but Jake's been my guy from the start. In my head, Jake has sandy brown hair, blue eyes, athletically built, killer smile, and is such a dream of a boyfriend. I've been having trouble lately finding the perfect guy for MBB, but I think Chris Lowell would work for Jake. 
This last pick TOTALLY reminds me of Jake!

“Are you going to kiss me?" I blabbered stupidly.
"I'm working up the nerve," he said softly.” 

“I did not ask you out. But I would seriously think about not shooting you down if you asked me. Nicely." I had to keep my pride. He took both of my hands in his. "Brenna Blixen will you be my girlfriend, please." He held up one of my hands and kissed my knuckles smoothly. "Pretty please. With sugar on top.” 

“You don't have to lie to me to be nice, Jake. You can just say, 'Wow, your nails look crappy.'" I did my best boy voice.
"Well, I will tell you that's a crappy imitation of my voice." He smiled so wide I could see his eyetooth from across the table. "But you've got to know you're totally hot, chipped nails and all." He burned beet red all the way to the roots of his hair. "Man, you get me to say some embarrassing stuff, Brenna." He rubbed his hand on the back of his neck.
"Hey, don't blame me when you feel moved to make strange declarations.” 

“Can I..." He stopped and his jaw flexed. "Can I kiss you?"
I didn't answer, and he didn't wait for me to. His hands caught me gently behind the neck and he pressed his mouth to mine, softly but firmly. Then he moved one arm around my waist and pulled me closer to him.” 


Why YES Jake, you CAN kiss me! Oh this boy is HAWT!

The Brenna Blixen Series is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

    "Brenna Blixen will you be my girlfriend, please." He held up one of my hands and kissed my knuckles smoothly. "Pretty please. With sugar on top.” I love a man that begs! LOL

  4. Add me to that list of people he can kiss!!!

    Chris Lowell is so freaking adorable. I hadn't heard of this series before, but I'm loving those quote.

    And I love the MBB button you made. Thanks Autumn.

    P.S. I haven't been able to do a 'button' blog roll on my WP page yet because I don't know the new coding I'll have to use, but I'm working on it, but since I still have a lot of broken links to fix, it isn't my top priority, but I'll get there eventually. LOL
