guestpostimage

For my last post for the Corrupt Me blog tour, I’ll be sharing with you guys a guest post from Jill about her favorite new adult book boyfriends. If you haven’t yet check out my review for Corrupt Me and if it piques your interest be sure to add Jill’s book to your TBR or purchase a copy. 💕


Ahh…book boyfriends. How much do we all love it when we find that perfect man in our favorite novel?

I had the ideal man in my head when I wrote Luca Marchese’s character in Corrupt Me. I’ve had a lot of readers tell me that Luca is their new book boyfriend, which makes me happy because that means I’ve done my job as a writer. Luca is a bad boy with a soft side and not your typical Mafia prince. But bad boys are not one size fits all and make for the best book boyfriends. They come in all different shapes, sizes, and flavors. It’s the bad boys that get the blood pumping and the juices flowing.

Today, I’d like to share some of my favorite book boyfriends.

The Off-Campus Series by Elle Kennedy

Garrett, Logan, and Dean are college hockey players who are dead sexy with the mouths and the moves to match these smoking hot covers. I read The Deal, The Mistake, and The Score years ago and I’m still fangirling so hard over this series. The Score is all about Dean and he is my favorite of the three. The final book in the series came out in September, but I haven’t had a chance to read it, but knowing Elle, I’m sure it’s just as wonderful. If you like hockey romances with cocky athletes that will make you wish they were real, then check out this series.

Daemon Black – Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

luxseries

I discovered the Lux series after reading a lot of blog reviews. The weekend I was editing Corrupt Me to send to my editor I finally decided to buy Obsidian, and I could not put the book down. Daemon Black is not your average bad boy. He’s an alien who reminded me of a young Superman without the cape. There’s a rough and ruggedness about Daemon that I found so incredibly sexy and intriguing. I read the first three books in one weekend because I couldn’t get enough of his character.

Blake Crawford – Smut by Karina Halle

29381926

Blake Crawford from Smut is hands-down one of my favorite book boyfriends ever. He’s hot, British, has a dirty mouth, and he can write. Need I say more? In the book, Blake and Amanda are forced to write together for their writing class, and the enemies to lovers trope is by far one of my favorites in new adult books. Oh, and there is steamy hot library sex that you don’t want to miss. This book is a must read for all lovers of romantic comedies.

Vicious – Vicious by L.J. Shen

My latest obsession is Vicious. His real name is Baron, so I was thankful his nickname is Vicious. And boy does that name fit this bad boy. Oh my God is he fine. But he is such an asshole, which is why the name of his group of friends from high school is called the Hotholes. Just that name alone had me curious about this book, and once I opened it, I could not stop reading. His jerk personality is so addicting. LJ Shen is a newish author to me. She writes book crack. I suggest you get them now while they’re still on Kindle Unlimited.

Well, that’s the end of my list. Thank you for having me on your blog. I hope everyone enjoyed this guest post.

excerpt

Face up on the coffee table, a copy of Philadelphia Magazine haunted me. Grandfather’s cold dark features stared back, giving me an eerie feeling, as though he were in the room with us. Even at a distance, he frightened me. He sat in a gold throne, dressed in a black Gucci suit, his elbow on the arm and his fist resting under his chin. Angelo Rinaldi III had the power to kill you with one look.

The headline read, Everything Rinaldi Touches Turns to Gold.

That part was true, given his string of successful mergers and acquisitions. He had taken his father’s profitable holding company and turned it into a multibillion-dollar conglomerate. One day, that would be my legacy—sitting atop my seat of power while glaring beneath me as my cold heart devoured everyone around me. I didn’t want to turn into Grandfather, but I had a feeling that the Rinaldi aura would settle so far beneath my skin, it would creep into my bones.

I came from a long line of assholes. There was no nice way to say it. Philadelphia Magazine had done a four-page spread on how our family made our money. Of course, they’d left out the real story—the one that would have blown the lid off our secrets, the story only a handful of people knew. Investors wouldn’t take too kindly to racketeers investing their hard-earned money.

I chugged half the mug, the warm liquid running down my throat, and threw the magazine on the floor with a sigh. “Luca’s such a Preston. I can’t believe I offered to let him meet up with us. Can we go somewhere else instead?”

“Five years later, and you still call all guys Preston. It’s time to come up with a new name. And there’s no way in hell you’re canceling. I’ve been wanting to hook up with Hunter since sophomore year. Don’t ruin this for me.”

“They’re all Prestons. The more money they have, the worse they are. It’s just a fact.”

Silvia had dated dozens of men like Luca and Hunter. For illustration’s sake, I would call them Preston, after the first snobby rich kid who had broken her heart. Even his name, Preston Greyson, screamed pretentious. I mean, c’mon.

I used boys when I wanted and on my terms.

Luca was wrong on so many levels and not because of his familial connections. If anything, knowing they operated outside the law turned me on. His defiance of authority, the way he’d gripped me in the quad, his erection pressed against my thigh had made me wet with anticipation.

Why did the wrong thing always feel so right? Was there something inherently evil inside me, trying to break free?

I glanced at Silvia as I flipped through the channels. “What do you think? Should I hook up with Luca?”

Everyone on campus, for the most part, knew the Marchese family ran the Philadelphia crime family. I’d caught him staring at me during classes, and I’d dodged him any chance I could for the past three years.

But, today, I’d straddled him, and I’d liked it. He could have taken me on the lawn, and I would have let him.

And, now, I had Luca on the brain. Everything about him screamed danger, and I wanted him to corrupt me in every way possible. A red flag waved above my head, but I ignored it. I remembered him from when we were younger—though I’d never admit it. Doing so would mean my family was just as crooked, and in the eyes of investors, we had to appear squeaky clean. We had a public image to uphold.

“Hmm…” Silvia slid her hand behind her head, staring up at the ceiling, as if it held the answer to my question. “I don’t know. He’ll just use you for sex and go on his way, like he does with every other girl.”

I filled my cup with more liqueur than coffee and set the hot carafe on the pot holder on the table.

Sex wasn’t about love; it was about power. And that came to mind as I responded, “Not if I use him first.”
