My Book Boyfriend #4: Ralston

Boys in books are just better. Right? Well, let's put them to the test.

Gabriel Ralston 
Well well, this is the guy I've spent 2 weeks dreaming about. Literally. This guy is amazing. The book's name is Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake and it's a historical romance. Well, I am really not in historical books, but good God this book showed me, what I was missing all this time. Because the romance was absolutely amazing! This guy has it all. ALL. 

From the title you can see that he is a total rake. He is arrogant, a man with a title, good looking, eyes so blue that you can get lost in them very easily, he is hot, and he has lots of experiences ;) 

Of course he's not perfect, he has mummy issues, which left him very aganist love as it self. So, he doesn't want to feel love, be in love, doing anything with love, period. Because love brings only pain and dissapointment. Like I said, mummy issues.

But let me show you girls, why this guy is so so damn hot!

His lips curved at her ear as he spoke, his harsh breathing making the words more a caress than a sound, “Kisses should not leave you satisfied.”
He returned his lips to hers, claiming her mouth again, robbing her of all thought with a rich, heady caress. All she wanted was to be closer to him, to be held more firmly. And, as though he could read her thoughts, he gathered her closer, deepening the kiss. His heat consumed her; his soft, teasing lips seemed to know all of her secrets.

When he lifted his mouth from hers, she had lost all strength. His next words pierced through her sensual haze.
“They should leave you wanting.”

“Attraction is not love.”
“I do not believe that what is between them is simple attraction.”
The words faded into silence, and he watched her intently for a long moment before leaning in, stopping mere inches from her. “There is nothing simple about attraction.”
“Nevertheless—” She stopped, unable to remember what it was she was trying to say. He was so close.
“Shall I show you how complicated attraction can be?” The words were deep and velvety, the sound of temptation. His lips were nearly on hers, she could feel their movement as he spoke, barely brushing against her.

Her eyes widened in shock. “I, a risk?” she replied, her voice was shaking with fury. “Oh, I shall see your sister, my lord. I won’t see her chances ruined. And, furthermore”—she held a single finger up to his nose—“I will not be told what to do by a notorious—and now proven—rake and libertine.”
He lost his temper then, capturing her hand, wagging finger and all, in his own and using it to pull her flush against him. “If I am to be labeled as such, I may as well stop resisting the part.” And, with that, he kissed her.

So yeah, my girls, this guy will turn you on ;) 
So, how do you like my new obsession? :)

Oh, that guy is definitely rake-ish! I don't read much historical romance, but those quotes are making me reconsider.

Seems like I am missing out a lot! I am not into historical romance either, my historical romance only goes as far as the 1800's. Now I guess I will have to change that. Thank you for sharing :)
