My Book Boyfriend (#22): Alex Wakeman

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.

Another Alex on the cards today. The absolutely swoon worthy...Alex Wakeman from Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson


Status: Alex is a Military man that works for a special division in Southern California and is totally swoon worthy and HOT! 
Age: 21
Hair: Dark Blonde
Eyes: Blue
Love Interest: Lila
Description: He has dark blonde hair which has been crew cut. He's tall and lean and completely bronzed from the sun. He also rides a motorcycle.

I felt his other hand sear hot against my cheek. He bent his head, and in a voice that Jack couldn't hear, said, "When you came down the stairs and fell into me, that was the moment." Then his lips pressed against mine.

"As though he sensed me studying him, Alex turned then walked around to my side of the car.  He put his arms around me and I sank my head against his chest, feeling some of the anxiety immediately fade away.  He lifted me up and rested me on the bonnet of the car and we stayed like that for a while, me cocooned in his arms with the sun slowly warming us."

"He pressed his thumb to my bottom lip and I heard an intake of air. That was me, I thought, before my head started to spin. Then he bent his head and kissed me. Just lightly, for a short  few seconds, before drawing away again."

Well there you go. Jensen-frickin hot-Ackles. I think I've out done myself this week. I have no words. Alex is swoon worthy, and Jensen is just too hot for words!!

Hope you enjoyed this weeks. If you haven't already read Hunting Lila, then you really should!

How can you say no to Jensen Ackles like honestly he is the top of the hottest man alive category when it comes to those eye's and abs and just everything, hehe. Fabulous choice this week! I love the quotes; I've never heard of this book though and that worries me, haha. Cause honestly where was I when this character was created! He is swoon worthy to the max!
