  2. I haven't met any of these boyfriends yet and I am ashamed lol. I need to meet these guys... I especially want to read The Forgetting since it keeps popping up on your lists.

    1. *GASP* TERESA. O.O

      I'm messing with you! But in all seriousness, you'd be in for a treat, "meeting" any of these guys. Definitely try The Forgetting! I think it's still on sale?

  3. I still need to read Rebel of the Sands. Maybe he'll become one of my book boyfriends, too. :)

    Nice variety of contemporary and fantasy boyfriends.

  4. I don't know how people do these lists! I have read almost no books, where I did not fall for the hero. Great list, though, and I love that Ethan from TMTT made the list (that's one of my top 2016 reads)

    1. Awww! Honestly I loved most of the heroes of the books I enjoyed, so it was a little difficult to narrow it down. Really, I just picked from my Swoon Thursday posts. :D I adored Ethan as well!

  5. I haven't read any of the books on your list but a lot of them are on my list of books to read soon (and some are sitting on my bookshelf!). I am looking forward to meeting these characters soon.

    1. Ooo, I hope you get the chance to read them soon, Carole! Happy reading. ^_^

  6. Wow, somehow this is the first time I've heard about Love, Lies, and Spies! That's crazy to me because it's everything I could want in a YA: historical fiction, madcap adventures re: spying, and romance.

    Thanks for putting it on my radar, Alyssa! :D

    1. WHAT. Danya! *throws Love, Lies and Spies your way* It's such a wonderful book. I don't remember the last time I laughed so much while reading a YA historical fiction novel. Honestly, the book is like an adult HR, but for YA (if that makes sense?).

      Thank YOU!

  7. I have read two of these, Love Lies and Spies and then The Diabolic. I totally loved Tyrus in the second one. I'm going to post my top 10 boyfriends later tonight! I haven't read the Rose and the Dagger yet, but am hoping I'll love Khalid still as well!
