Victoria’s Favorite New Adult Book Boys
Who doesn’t love a great book boy? Every heroine needs a smexy hero next to her, and The Crimson Hunt’s Luca Grinaldi makes my heroine Ariel swoon something fierce. I decided to share some of my favorite book boys with you in books within the new adult category since The Crimson Hunt is a new adult sci-fi romance.
I hope you enjoy my picks!
Kellan Kyle from Thoughtless by SC Stephens
I just love this smexy rocker. He’s an absolute dream and a major sweetheart.
R from Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
I don’t know what it is about this zombie who wants to be alive again, but whatever it is he’s got me hooked! R’s passion for life is lovely and tells a great story.
Teren from Conversion by SC Stephens
This little-bit vampire warrants a whole lot of swooning from this girl. If there was a smexy scale he’d be off the charts for me!
Will from Slammed by Colleen Hoover
I can see exactly what draws Lake to this graduate student. He’s intelligent and gorgeous to boot. Add a touch of sensitivity and thoughtfulness and you’ve got a great book boy.
Marcus from Because of Low by Abbi Glines
Marcus is another college boy. He’s such a great support system for Low and that’s a very smexy trait.
The Crimson Hunt
by Victoria H. Smith
Series: Eldaen Light Chronicles, #1
Publication date: November 8th 2012
College junior Ariel Richmond is working on year three of Project Normalcy.
Her house reeks of keggers past and her bestie is just a slight bit vulgar. But the thing is—they both aid in making life refreshingly uneventful.
So much for hard-earned mediocrity when Luca Grinaldi appears on the scene.
Luca’s sudden presence on campus is hard to ignore. Those bright eyes act like a beacon to unsuspecting females, and with features like his, he’s got to be moonlighting for GQ. Luca hopelessly captivates Ariel with his confidence and charisma, but the mysteries surrounding him make him nearly untouchable. And just when Ariel grows close enough to unlock his secrets, a tragic event sends her life in a downward spiral.
That steady life is no longer an option and allies quickly become scarce. The mysterious Luca seems to be the only one willing to help her—but with that trust comes the burden of his secrets. He has a dark mission of otherworldly proportions, and is willing to sacrifice as many lives as it takes to see it completed.
Gone are the days of simply maintaining normalcy, and if Ariel isn’t cautious with her trust, so soon may be her future.
