My book boyfriend #15

My book boyfriend is hosted by Missie over at The Unread Reader and has now pretty much taken over my Wednesday's. Every Wednesday I drool over a fictional male character and rack my brains to think of what yummy person I will use in pictures to make everyone else drool too.

This week's book boyfriend is Brody Brown the gorgeous tattooed biker in the very steamy Coming Undone by Lauren Dane. He rides a Harley, owns a tattoo shop and gave up a promising career in art to bring up his younger brother and sister.
He's rough around the edges and is protective of those he loves, the chemistry between Brody and ex ballet dancer Elise (who has a troubled past) is sizzling hot and he adores her young daughter Rennie.

He was... Well, there wasn't amy other man she could compare him to really. His hair was close-cropped but tousled. If it had been longer she'd have bet he'd have had thick curls. Dark as night. The neatly trimmed goatee and moustache worked for him, framed a mouth she was quite convinced would deliver some devastating goodness...

So alluring, this man. His voice, oh good Lord, his voice was like suede. Deep and rough/soft. Up close, he was... a bit overwhelming. More than handsome- he was too hard-edged to be handsome- he was compelling, magnetic.

When he pulled up his shirt, her mouth had actually watered. He had tattoos on his side and belly. His very flat and hard belly. What she could see there and on his wrist looked well thought out. Not a bunch of random stuff. What she saw seemed to have a Far Eastern influence. She wondered what he looked like under the clothes, under all of them. And not just for the tattoos either. He emanated power as he moved. Even when he stood still, the power rolled off him in waves of magnetism.

He'd do anything for her; he needed her to understand it, needed everyone to understand it. He couldn't wait until this dammed stuff was over with, so they could move forward. He wanted to tell her he loved her, he wanted to sleep at her side every night. He wanted all this external stuff stowed away so he could spend the rest of his days loving Elise and Rennie.

Thanks to Marco Dapper for being my Brody

  9. Brody, that is an impressive set of moobs! Seriously, I think ALL FOUR of my tires are flat. Won't you come help a girl out?
