Bad Boy Rehab Hop

Bad Boy Rehab Hop
January 10 – January 17, 2013
Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and The Book Hookup
We tried giving up Bad Boys for our New Year’s Resolution…..
but try to make me go to rehab and I said no no no.

Bad Boy (n.) person
1. A guy who has many characteristics of a naughty, naughty boy. OMG let  the drooling begin.
2. A heartbreaker with a five o’clock shadow. Rawrrrrrr!
3. Independent and willful. Does what he wants when he wants. Never follow trends, they follow him.
4. Someone that’s not looking for trouble, but there’s a serious sense of danger about him. We love danger!
Usable Note: A bad boy is a gorgeous man with MANY layers and is INSANELY irresistible to women. *raises hands*… YES PLEASE!

Thank you so much to the hosts for this super fun giveaway!  On my stop, I’m giving away one bad boy book of your choice from The Book Depository or ebook from Amazon or B&N. This giveaway is International, provided you can receive books from The Book Depository.  Since you get to choose your favorite bad boy, I thought I’d share my top ten. You can choose a book from my list (some of these are available in ebook format only and would be sent via Amazon or B&N), or you can choose any book featuring your favorite bad boy ($15 value):

#1) Dean Holder from Hopeless. He was supposedly sent to juvie for a hate crime, but there's so much more to this bad boy than meets the eye. Dark, mysterious, a tattoo of "hopeless" on his forearm... but is he really hopeless? I just finished reading this over the weekend and can’t wait to share my review as soon as I officially return from my blogging break. Holder is the bad boy that may have just ruined all future fictional boyfriends for me. 


#2) Lucas from Easy. Tattooed, shaggy hair, lip ring -- darkly intriguing all the way down to his scuffed boots. And he makes a mean cup of coffee. Be still, my heart.

Dark Inside (Dark Inside, #1) 

#3) Daniel. Dark Inside. My toes still curl when I think about this mysterious, brooding hunk of hawtness.  If loving him is wrong...I don't want to be right.

The Last Echo (The Body Finder, #3) 

#4) Rafe from The Body Finder series. While my heart belongs to Jay in this series, Rafe is another character that I couldn’t get enough of and hope to find out much more about in the next installment.

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1) 

#5) Warner from Shatter Me. Ultimate bad boy that you just can’t hate, no matter how hard you try... until you finally stop trying and give in to the temptation.

Obsidian (Lux, #1) 

#6) Daemon from The Lux series. Snarky and infuriating. I originally wanted to smack him, but he makes me laugh out loud and oozes a sexy sweetness that makes him easy to forgive.

The Awakening and The Struggle (The Vampire Diaries, #1-2) 

#7) Another Damon. This is a complete cheat because I haven’t finished book one in The Vampire Diaries series. I’m smitten with him on the show, though, and while I’m not sure how loosely based the TV character is on the book character…. he’s too much of a smoldering bad boy to not get a mention.

Fallen (Fallen, #1) 

#8) Cam from the Fallen series. The saving grace of this series for me comes in the form of this gorgeous, snarky fallen angel.

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1) 

#9) Patch. I’ve only read book one while the rest of this series waits patiently on my bookshelf. I can’t wait to get back to it. Patch has some great lines. Sarcastic, funny, and completely swoon-worthy.

Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2) 

#10) John Breed from the Beautiful Creatures series. John was a welcome bad boy addition to this series, and I would have loved to have known more about this absorbing character. I loved him and was left wanting more.

So there you have it -- my top ten bad boys (although I really had to refrain from making this list much, much longer).
