My Book Boyfriend (#31): Shane Collins

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme, hosted by Missie at TheUnread 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 BookBoyfriend Introduction Page over at Missie's blog The Unread Reader.

If you've been following us for a while, you'll know that I've started (almost finished) reading The Morganville Vampires Series; and I bet you've been wondering why it's taken me so long to use this guy. I don't even know myself. I think it's because I wanted to get as far into the series as I could so I had an amazing choice of quotes for him. So, I'm in love with him and his best friend but I'm only doing the one today. He would be...Mr. Shane Collins. 

Shane Collins

Description: Shane has light brown 'slacker' hair and brown eyes. He's pretty well toned and is reknowed for getting into fights. Before Claire, he was a little bit of ho? He lives in the Glass House with his best friend Michael and Goth Eve and his (now) girlfriend Claire. 

"God, I needed you," he murmured. "I can't even tell you how many times I thought about this. The funny thing is, I don't need you any less now. I think I need you more." 

'He leaned back, eyes half shut, and he was smiling. Shane didn't smile all that much, and it always left her breathless and tingling. There was a secrecy about it like he only ever smiled at her, and it just felt... perfect."Claire, you're being careful right?" He smoothed hair back from her face. "Seriously. You'd tell me if you got into trouble?"
No trouble," She lied, thinking about Monica's not-so veiled threats, and that glimpse of Shane's dad seated across from Oliver in the coffee shop."No trouble at all"
Good" He kissed her again, then moved down her jawline to her neck , and, wow neck nibbles took her breath away. She closed her eyes and buried her fingers in his warm hair, trying to tell him through every touch how much she liked this, like him, loved...
Her eyes came open, fast.
She did not just think about that.
And then, maddeningly, he let go and leaned back, lips damp. He licked them, watching her, and then gave her that slow crazy, sexy smile again.
Go to bed" he said " Before I decide to come with."

"He broke the kiss and leaned against her, breathing hard. "Good morning to you, too. Man, I just can't stay mad when you do that."

Heh. Ain't he cute? Now you see why I love him! I even have a bracelet with his name on it. It took me a while to find the right Shane, I went back and forth between Chase Crawford and Matt Lanter, and I couldn't decide. It was really hard, but after lots of thinking and flipping back and forth I decided that Chase-Although also my Adrian Ivashkov- was more perfect for Shane...only because I ended up agreeing with Donna that Matt Lanter was too beefy for Shane...that's all. If that wasn't the case, I would have mushed them both up and created one big hunky Shane Collins. 

So, yeah, Shane Collins...*la swoon*. You're welcome. Took me long enough to use him. Maybe if you're all lucky I'll even give Michael Glass the spotlight for a bit...maybe.

Who's your book boyfriend? 

Thank you Missie for hosting a great meme!

I love Shane! I couldn't really stick with the series but I really loved him and of course I love Chace Crawford. He has the look that fits sooo many books boyfriends. I use him often. I just can't help it.
"Go to bed" he said " Before I decide to come with."
Great quote! HOT!
Here'sMy Book Boyfriend

Gah! Shane! I've been holding off on doing a MBB for him because I am having the hardest time picking a Shane. I for some reason always lean towards Kellan Lutz though. But Chase for it! And the quotes too. Oh Shane..

Felicia the Geeky Blogger said...

I think you cast Shane perfectly both in swagger and look! Great Casting :)

Wee Shubba said...

Shane is yummy.Aw chase is a good pick but I too like much love books lean to Kellan Lutz for Shane :)

Jennifer said...

Lisa said...

I'm only on book 5 of the series but so far it's great. Shane it great and I love Chase as him. Yum!

Jade said...

He sounds hot. I'm going to have to get into this series just to read about him. The guy repping your BB seems a perfect fir to the description, down to the slacker hair. Love it!

Cayce said...

I love the Morganville Vampires series and Shane! Going to start Last Breath soon :) It's waiting for me right next to me, on the top of my tbr books :)
Hot guy, esp. love that last picture :P

Hazal said...

Shane will definitely be on my list of my book crushes and oh my goodness, Chase Crawford!! Brilliant choice.

Lesley said...

Chase is a perfect Shane, and that last picture is just.... soooooooo delicious.

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

That's Shane alright! Okay, so I haven't read the series yet, but he is kind of legendary.

That 'go to bed' line... SUPER SEXY! (just like that last picture)

Thanks Jess! :)

Nea said...

Ah! I love Shane - totally crush worthy for sure.

Arianne said...

I love Shane, but I don't see him as that guy.. lol I'm too used to him as Nate in Gossip Girl..

Unknown said...

I don't watch Gossip Girl but I think Chase Crawford is an excellent pick. I think Shane would be a bit more rugged/not as model-ish, haha if that makes sense. Love this series! I'm interested in seeing who you would choose as Michael!

Miss Page-Turner said...

Now I really really want to read this series. I haven't so far, but these sexy quotes are a good reason to. Chase Crawford is hot!

Emma Gray said...

OMG! I love the Morganville Vampires, and Shane Collins is by far the best character in the series. He brings everything in it! :) Oh yes Chase Crawford, really suits him! <3.

I'm a new follower and blogger. Would really like if you could follow me please.
