Admit it, almost all of us have fallen for the bad boy…I mean fictitiously, of course! The trope is well-written and never overdone, and I’m a sucker, I confess, for a bad boy romance, though I do like to keep mine on the clean side of reading. Though, that’s just my preference. Bad boys are making their way through the NA market, and while I stick almost strictly to YA, it’s impossible to ignore. We all love the bad boys. We have for a long time and always will.
It’s quite impossible to articulate my love for Jessa Morano…sigh. I’m #TeamJess forever and will be bingeing the Gilmore Girls remake to see that leather jacket and gorgeous smirk. Below, besides when he admitted to Rory that he WROTE A BOOK FOR HER, is one of my favorite scenes with Jess.
Next up, we have Jace Wayland. Or is it Herondale? Maybe Lightwood? Wait…Morgenstern? It takes a while for Jace to find himself, but I’ve loved him from the beginning. No guy will ever measure up to the Jace in my head, but Jamie Campbell Bower did quite well with that accent of his.
Oh, my, my, my…Aaron Warner…just thinking about this guy makes me happy! Talk about bad boy? He started out the series as the villain! I give all my heart to Warner, and by book two I was totally shipping him and Juliette. What do you mean you haven’t read the Shatter Me trilogy! What. Are. You. Waiting. For?!?
I think I’m in need of a reread of the last two books in the series, purely because of Warner!
