My Book Boyfriend (#27): Noah Shaw

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

Happy New Year everyone!! Welcome back to Book Boyfriend. I hope you all had a nice Christmas, and your New Year so far has been a nice one.

Well lets get started! My Book Boyfriend today comes from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. He is...Noah Shaw

Noah Shaw

Description: Noah has a British accent. He wears chucks with no laces, and excels at using sexual innuendos ALL the time. His chestnut hair is always in disarray (bed-hair) and his eyes are almost grey. He has a scruffy jaw due to his 5 O'Clock shadow. He's a mysterious boy, with lots of secrets.

Quotes: “You want me as much as I want you. And all I want is you."
My tongue warred with my mind. "Today," I whispered.
Noah stood slowly, his body skimming mine as he rose. "Today. Tonight. Tomorrow. Forever.”

“Have you kissed many boys before?" he asked quietly.
His question brought my mind back into focus. I raised an eyebrow. "Boys? That's an assumption."
Noah laughed, the sound low and husky. "Girls, then?"
"Not many girls? Or not many boys?"
"Neither," I said. Let him make of that what he would.
"How many?"
"I am taking away that word. You are no longer allowed to use it. How many?"
My cheeks flushed, but my voice was steady as I answered. "One."
At this, Noah leaned in impossibly closer, the slender muscles in his forearm flexing as he bent his elbow to bring himself nearer to me, almost touching. I was heady with the proximity of him and grew legitimately concerned that my heart might explode. Maybe Noah wasn't asking. Maybe I didn't mind. I closed my eyes and felt Noah's five o' clock graze my jaw, and the faintest whisper of his lips at my ear.
"He was doing it wrong.” 

“Is there any point asking what you're going to make me do on Sunday?"
"Not really."
Okay. "Is there any point asking what you're going to do to me?"
He grinned wickedly. "Not really."
Fabulous. "Does it involve the use of a safe word?"
"That will depend entirely on you." Noah moved impossibly closer, just inches away. A few freckles disappeared into the scruff on his jaw. "I'll be gentle," Noah added. My breath caught in my throat as he looked at me from beneath those lashes, ruining me.
I narrowed my eyes at him. "You're evil."
In response, Noah smiled, and raised his finger to gently tap the tip of my nose. "And you're mine," he said, then walked away.” 

Well my Noah is portrayed by model Ryan Mertz. Ok so yeah, he's a little older than what Noah should be and he doesn't have the scruffy jaw, but he has a hell of a jaw! He's pretty much perfect for him. Happy Fricken New Year! 

What do you think to Noah? Have you read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer?

Who's your Book Boyfriend this week?

Thank you to Missie for hosting this great meme :D It's good to be back.

Noah Shaw! I have yet to read the book, but I already know so much about him. Word of his hotness has gotten around.

That almost kiss is so swoon! And Ryan... super hot!!

Happy New Year to you too, ladies!

I am so blushing right now. Was that really a quote from a YA book? YA? *giggling* I will check the library today! Right after this post!!!

Book Passion for Life said...

Yes Katrina that was a quote in a YA book lol. It's what made me fall in love with Noah.

Ryan is very hot, he's the closest I could get.

Your post makes me wish that I had been able to finish The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. And I forgive you for the older, not quite how you see him Noah. It has nothing to do with how cute Ryan Mertz is and more to do with how sweet I am. I promise. *crosses fingers*

Unknown said...

I have this book from the library! I'll definitely be getting to it next. Noah sounds amazing. “You want me as much as I want you. And all I want is you."
My tongue warred with my mind. "Today," I whispered.
Noah stood slowly, his body skimming mine as he rose. "Today. Tonight. Tomorrow. Forever.”

I'm Italian, so sorry for my wrong english. Yes, I read this wonderful book and i fell in love with Noah, to the point that i wanted to be Mara, with all her problems. So he is... BEAUTIFUL! God, if there a boy like him, aniwhere in the world, i believe that i'll turn it to catch him. He is sure of himself but he is incredibly sweet. Noah is definitly mine: today, tonight, tomorrow, forever.
La traduzione è un po' sbilenca perchè appunto sono italiana e non vado molto bene in inglese, quindi mi sono fatta aiutare da google traduttore che a quanto pare non ne sa più di me. Vorrei ringraziare michelle hodkin per le emozioni che mi ha regalato leggendo questo libro. Grazie:))
ps: if they made a movie for this book?

carly said...

I loved this book!!!! I could see Ryan Mertz as Noah. I've seen that a few people want Grant Gustin as Noah. I love him, and he's very very attractive, but he's not British. I also love Max Irons. He has Noah's eyes, but that's about it.

Some gold watches are doing well around the market, too,
but stainless banded watches with crystal movement will be the current watches
to hold an eye on. The watch is hand-wound and it has three spring barrels supplying the 8 events of
power. It's my guess that the 19 years old young man who founded Movado more than a century ago, couldn't have, in his wildest dreams, imagined that his company would still
be going strong today.
