My book Boyfriend (#8): Alejandro 'Alex' Fuentes

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme, hosted by Missie at The Unread ReaderWhat is My Book Boyfriend you might ask.  Well it is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush including stats, a picture of what you imagine he looks like and some quotes from him that make you swoon.  If you are interested in participating please check out the My Book Boyfriend Introduction Page over at Missie's blog The Unread Reader.

So this weeks My Book Boyfriend, I wanted to do someone who I've just fallen head over heels in love with. And who's the epitomy of bad boy by being in a Mexican Blood Gang...

Sexy heart throb-Alejandro 'Alex' Fuentes

Alex's Stats:

Status: He's a Mexican who lives on the wrong side of town. He has 2 brothers and lives with his mother. His father died when he was 6.
Age: 18
Eyes: Chocolate Brown eyes
Hair: Raven Black
Physical Description: He has a heart melting smile, wears a lot of black, is tanned due to his Mexican decent. His hair is described as 'raven' black, with chocolate brown eyes. Has tattoos, wear black and read (the symbol of his blood gang), and rides a motorcycle he named Julio.

Brittany: "I'm losing control."
Alex: "Mamacita I've already lost it."

Brittany: "The reason I want you to put a shirt on is, well, because, um...' 
Alex: 'You've never seen a guy with his shirt off?' 
Brittany: 'Ha, ha. Very funny. Believe me, you don't have anything I haven't seen before.' 
Alex: 'Wanna bet?' he says, then moves his hands to the button on his jeans and pops it open. 
Brittany: 'Whoa, Alex. Please keep your pants on."

Alex: "And what do you want right now?" Right now I itch to heal his wounds and forget my own.
He touches my cheek with the tips of his fingers.
My breath hitches. 

Brittany: "Do you want to kiss me, Alex?" I whisper.
Alex: "Dios mio, I want to kiss you ... to taste your lips, your tongue." He gently traces my lips withthe tips of his fingers

Alex: "Do you want me to kiss you? Nobody else would know but the two of us." 

I know, I know, its not the most original Alex model but after seeing the Rules of Attraction book trailer, I felt that Alexander F Rodriguez was perfect. And he is.

Thank you to Alexander F Rodriguez for being such an incredible look-a-like. Alex really appreciates it. So if you want a piece of Alex yourself you can catch him in Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. I hope you enjoyed. 

What do you all think of Alex? Have you read Perfect Chemistry?
Thanks to Missie for hosting this great meme.
Tune in next Wednesday for another installment of My Book Boyfriend.

Ooh, what a nice way to start the day. ;) Great post, I love those quotes. :)


Rachel said...

Omg! I can't believe some of the pics you have. That's exactly how I picture Alex! Exactly =D

My keeper shelf said...

I love Alex, it was Donna who told me to read Perfect Chemistry she knew I would love it. I think the book trailer model is the perfect Alex I can't think of anyone else now who would do him justice. I am soooo counting down the days until Chain Reaction.

Book Passion for Life said...

Yeah Donna was the one who said I should read Perfect Chemistry, and I'm glad I did. I love Alex so much. I couldn't get him out of my head for days! Can't wait to read Rules of Attraction. I saw the book trailer last night and Oh.My.GAWD Carlos Fuentes is HOT lol.

Belle said...

Oooh that boy is beautiful. I haven't read this but perhaps I should! ;)

Book Passion for Life said...

Yes Belle. You should lol. Alex is wonderful!

Anonymous said...

I had the guy from Switched at Birth , He's always seemed like my Alex LOL
Blair Redford
The guy you cast as Alex , is he the same one from Monte Carlo ?

Book Passion for Life said...

I'm not sure. The guy I've used is the original Perfect Chemistry book cover model, he's also in the Rules of Attraction book trailer. But Blair Redford seems like a good one, he'd need contacts though as his eyes are too light.

Andra said...

I REALLY wanna read Perfect Chemistry. I have heard SOO many good things about it!. wow...that last pic of Alexander F. Rodriguez is INTENSE...i feel like his eyes are following me *moves back and forth in front of screen*

Book Passion for Life said...

Alex is quite intense anyway. So Alex F Rodriguez is perfect :) he's quite an intense looking sort of guy. Definitely read the book Andra, you won't be disappointed :)

Felicia the Geeky Blogger said...

What a great pick! I loved his quotes and I had not heard of the book before :)

Mimi said...

Oh I forgot about this book! Must read it soon :)

Missie said...


What is going on here?! Why are you stealing my ultimate book boyfriend? I freaking love Alex Fuentes, and really there is no one better to play him than Alexander. OMG, did you see the new trailer. I really don't like the bimbo they have playing Brittany, but who cares when I can't take my eyes off of Alex and Carlos. *le swoon*

Book Passion for Life said...

Hahaha Missie, you weren't warned about me? I have a habit of stealing fictional men from other people lol.

I did see the new trailer and! Missie They are both so hot, I love them both and I haven't even read Rules of Attraction yet! I don't like the bimbo either, but what I will say is how AMAZING did those kisses look?!! O_o *le swoon* hummina hummina....

Missie said...

*Gah heard round the world*


*faints* How could you not? Carlos is so freaking hilarious and just so........ caliente! *melts*

Okay, I hereby forfeit your right to the Fuentes brothers. I'm obviously the bigger fan and therefore I get to have them all to myself. LOL

Anyone want to back me up here? Anyone?

Book Passion for Life said...

In my defense; I only finished PC on Sunday lol. And I have a couple of books to review before I can start RoA which will be very soon.

Ahahahaha 'Caliente' can you say *la swoon?* lol.
Oh the Fuentes brothers are immense, and I plan on doing a MBB special with all three of them eventually!

No-one is backing you up, we're sharing them...

Missie said...

Sharing? *sighs*

I guess I can do that. But only for special occasions, like your 50th birthday! You can have him then...for like a whole hour.


Book Passion for Life said...

Pffft...Missie. We either share them OR no-one gets them! NO-ONE!!


Missie said...

*hangs head in defeat*

Lisa said...

I have Perfect Chemistry on my TBR pile but I haven't got around to reading it yet. After this yummy post I'll definitely have to move it up the pile.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Okay you two... break it up! I'm stealing him. Only because I see him as muy caliente and not just caliente! Yea, I know... bad excuse, but it's MINE! Besides, I figure with you two arguing... he'll be left all on his lonesome. *giggles* Oh and I'm going to read Perfect Chemistry (yes, I know... I fail). I need to meet him!

Book Passion for Life said...

Whoa whoa whoa...hold the phone Melissa! You can't just come blog hopping over here and think you can just TAKE Alex from us without you having not even read the book! Sorry! Doesn't work like that. Now if you'll excuse us, Missie and I were 'discussing' the Fuentes brothers...*sigh*

Book Passion for Life said...

You girls can fight over Alex all you want! As long as Carlos is MINE then, its all gooooooooooooooooooddd! :) Donna

Nic @ Irresistible Reads said...

Alex is my favourite Fuentes brother! And I loved his shirtless in that Chain Reaction trailer. And that last quote is my favourite :)

Alexa said...

Love Alex, Perfect Chemistry is one of my favorite books. Rules of Attraction was good but no one will ever beat Alex!

Great pick!
