Top Ten Tuesday: Book Boyfriends

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature / weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we make a top ten list from a given topic.

This week's TTT is a freebie, so I chose:

My Top Ten Book Boyfriends

1. Dirk Pitt (Dirk Pitt series by Clive Cussler)
Pitt is my oldest crush on this list, and actually the guy who got me into the thriller/adventure genre, so he holds a special place in my heart. I immediately fell for this charming, devilishly handome action hero who saves the world on a regular basis. He may be too good to be true, but that's alright with me. (Note: The character is terrible in the first couple of books. I'd advise you to pick up a later book first if you want to start the series.)

2. Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard Sequence by Scott Lynch)
I simply can't resist a good con artist, and Locke is one of the best. His physique isn't the most impressing, so he relies on his quick wit and silver tongue to get him out of tight spots (which he often finds himself in). He's loyal to his friends and likes to have a good time. Locke's one of my all-time favourite characters, and I just love him. (Today I heard rumours that there might be TV series in the works based on the books - if this happens I might be the happiest girl on earth.)

3. Ralph Macnair (A Scottish Ferry Tale & Scotland by Starlight by Nancy Volkers)
Out of all the characters on this list, Ralph is the one I most wish actually was my boyfriend. He's a theatre actor; he's kind, caring, funny, handsome and just an overall good guy. Oh, and he's Scottish. *swoon*

4. Joe Morelli (Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich)
I may have stopped reading the books but I never stopped loving Joe Morelli. While everyone else was Team Ranger, I always thought Morelli was the best guy for Stephanie – and me. ;)

5. W.W. Hale the Fifth (Heist Society series by Ally Carter)
Hale is awesome – clever, sophisticated, protective, handsome, rich and a con artist (did I mention how I love a good con artist?), so who cares if he's waaay to young for me?

6. Ben Hope (Ben Hope series by Scott Mariani)
The only thing I love as much as a good con artist is a good action hero, and Ben Hope is certainly one of them. He's a bit moodier and more solitairy than Dirk Pitt, but then again he is British (half Irish). All Ben really wants to do is live a quiet life at his place in Northern France, but he keeps getting dragged into mysteries and conspiracies that needs solving.

7. Sam Howard (Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher)
Sam is just a sweetheart, and I adore him. He starts out being a workaholic, but during the course of the book he realises that there is more to life than earning money.

8. Corey Purchase (Judd Bell & Corey Purchase series by Steve Worland)
My list wouldn't be complete without a charming Australian. Corey flies a plane in the Australian outback, but when he accidentally helps American austronaut Judd Bell save the world, he becomes quite the hero. Corey's funny and laid-back, and he can talk to his dog. And the dog replies.

9. Aramis (The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas)
Okay, I might be cheating a bit here, because even though I've read the book, it was a long time ago, and my perception of Aramis is mostly based on films and the recent BBC series The Musketeers. But he's still originally a book character, so I've decided that he counts.

10. Levi (Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell)
Levi is my most recent crush. He's the kind of guy I wish I'd known in high school or college; sweet and funny and very kind. Heck, I wish I knew a Levi at my current age as well.

What TTT topic did you choose this week? And tell me about your book boyfriends!
