My book boyfriend #18

My book boyfriend is hosted by Missie over at The Unread Reader. Every week 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

My yummy book boyfriend this week is hot rock star Adrian Brown from Lauren Dane's Never Enough.

Reasons why Adrian has gained book boyfriend status

1. He is a hot rock star.
2. He is a tattooed hot rich rock star.
3. He likes to talk dirty.
4. He prefers taking his nieces and nephew to the park or zoo than deal with screaming groupies.
5. He secretly wants a wife and kids and wants to come home to a house full of noise and people waiting for him.

Adrian finds out he is a Dad (he had no idea- the mother gave the baby to her sister Gillian 13 years ago and only told Gillian who the father was on her death bed a few weeks ago) despite initial doubts when he sees a picture of his son Miles (who is his spitting image) he works hard to build a good relationship with him. In to the bargain he falls in lust and then in love with Gillian the British woman who has brought Miles up as her son. I loved Adrian he isn't the usual type of rock star, yes he plays guitar and has tattoo's but he's devoted to his family and initially is afraid of hoping that Miles is his son in case the DNA test turns out wrong. Gillian is also a fantastic female lead she is fiercely protective of her son, Adrian has visions of her as a naughty British governess and their love story is fast, furious and hot. However, with dark secrets from Gillian's past and Adrian's problems with trusting people lust and love might not be enough to keep them together.

Gillian nodded before looking back at him. She hadn't expected to be charmed. The man had been such a cad on the phone, she figured he'd be snotty. Instead he was fabulously charismatic. Charming. His speech had a cadence to it, slow and honeyed. Not southern, but something similar. As if he liked to roll his words over his palate before he gave them up.

And, she had to admit after sneaking a few looks at his hands and forearms, he had lovely arms. She had a thing about a man's hands. When a man pushed his sleeves up, she looked. And she liked what she saw.

Sun-kissed, but not fake-tan orange, a dusting of dark hair. Firm, muscular flesh. Big hands. He had calluses. She knew from the hand shake. Where he strummed his guitar she assumed. Strength but not a showy type.

His hair was a dark chocolate tousle. Tumbled around his face and shoulders, taunting her fingers. It would be soft and cool against her skin. A neat beard and mustache only framed lips she had a feeling knew their way around a kiss.

She slid her palm up his chest, pausing at the nipple ring. If she was spectacular, then he was a universe more. He was all rock-and-roll bad boy once the shirt was off.
"Wait." She pushed back from him to look better.
If she'd expected him to be shy, she'd have been wrong. He let her look her fill, that sexy smile of his planted on his mouth.
He stood there in her bedroom, hair tousled, sexy-mouthed rock star.

"Baby, please, God, please don't do this. Don't cry. Don't shut me out. I'm sorry I didn't talk to you first. I knew  you'd be mad, but not how mad, and I've hurt you completely unintentionally but it's still there." He hugged her from behind.
Gillian didn't want to be so affected by him but she was. She leaned back into the solid, warm wall of his chest and breathed him in. He kissed the top of her head, murmuring things she shouldn't want to believe but did anyway.
"Please let me be a part of what you and Miles have built. Let me be your family. Be mine.

Lauren Dane writes the best tattooed book boyfriends EVER. I think the guy on the actual book cover is the perfect Adrian, with his earrings and tattoos. I read Never Enough in a day it was THAT GOOD, fantastic story and scorching and I mean scorching hot love scenes. Smexy with a story what more could you ask for?
