Battle of the Sexes: Boys (#5): Alex vs Ash

Battle of the sexes is a new weekly meme created by us at Book Passion for Life. Every Saturday we'll post a poll with 2 characters from 2 different books. We will alternate each week between boys and girls. We'll be running the polls for 12 weeks, at which point YOU thats right YOU bloggers will vote for your favourite character (boy or girl) depending on which week it is. At the end of the 12 weeks, we will place all previous winners into one poll where you will all vote for your ULTIMATE CHARACTER. That character will be crowned King or Queen in the Battle of the sexes final. 

Bloggers that wish to take part in this meme are welcome to do so. When you post the meme please link back to us. You are welcome to alternate each week, so if you would prefer to do girls first then you are welcome to. When posting this meme please include the following info on your characters:
  • Their stats like full name, date of birth, eye colour, hair colour, books they've featured in etc...
  • Three quote's for each character
  • The book cover from where these characters originate OR a photo that best reflects the character
Other than that, there isn't anything else to add to the meme. There are no rules, so pretty much anything goes.

Alex quotes:

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." 

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."

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

Ash quotes:

"My name is Ashallyn'darkmyr Tallyn, third son of the Unseelie Court...Let it be known--from this day forth, I vow to protect Meghan Chase, daughter of the Summer King, with my sword, my honor, and my life. Her desires are mine. Her wishes are mine. Should even the world stand against her, my blade will be at her side. And should it fail to protect her, let my own existence be forfeit. This I swear, on my honor, my True Name, and my life. From this day on..." His voice went even softer, but I still heard it as though he whispered it into my ear. "I am yours." 

"Touch her, and I'll freeze your testicles off and put them in a jar. Understand?"

" What do you want, Ash ? "
" Your head, " Ash answered softly. " On a pike. But what I want doesn't matter this time. " He pointed his sword at me. "I've come for her. " 

Okay everyone! There's all the details on our GORGEOUS boys this week. Two awesome males to decide over.  Winner will be announced once the 5 days of voting is up! Have fun :)
