My Book Boyfriend: Caden Grayson

We decided that Thursday needed a little pizazz and stumbled on this meme. So we took ourselves over to The Unread Reader to see what it was all about and join the fun. The Unread Reader features this meme on Wednesdays, but we figured moving our participation to Thursday wouldn't hurt anything. We'd love it if you'd leave a comment if you participate in this so we can check out your book boyfriends as well.

My Book Boyfriend is..... 
Caden Grayson
Hearts in Darkness
by  Laura Kaye
My ideal Caden is Wentworth Miller.

*dreamy sigh* Caden, Caden, Caden....I've been waiting for my next turn at MBB just for you.

Facts about Caden:

* Claustrophobic, currently trapped in an elevator with an engaging redhead
* Quiet, Loner
* Lost his mother and younger brother at 14 in horrific car wreck 
* Paramedic
* He drives a Jeep - This is always hot.

Caden's Appearence:
* Tattooed & pierced
* Skull trim
* Brown hair and eyes
* Built and tall with large hands
* To quote Makenna, he's "freaking gorgeous!"

Caden Quotes:
"Caden didn't respond, and Makenna was almost certain she,d put him to sleep. Then he said, quietly, "I really like the sound of your voice." Makenna's flush ran down into the neck of her silk blouse. Saying she was pretty hadn't gotten to her, but his saying he liked her voice set butterflies loose in her stomach."

"What color are your eyes?" he whispered, once again losing the filter between his brain and mouth. "Blue' she whispered back. 'And yes.'  'Yes what?' Caden asked, distracted by the desire to reach out and touch her face. The whispering made their conversation feel intense, intimate. And all of a sudden his body roared to life. This time though, his racing pulse and pounding heart was a result of arousal rather than panic."

"The longer she looked him over without saying anything, the more Caden tensed. His neck and shoulders stiffened as he forced his muscles to stay still under her intense gaze. He could imagine her mentally compiling all of his oddities: 'Huge tribal tattoo covering half his abdomen, big dragon down the arm still trapped between my thighs, multiple facial piercings, big ugly scar on the side of his shaved head...'  And that wasn't even all of it."

Why Caden is My Book Boyfriend:
He's so sweet, and yet still slightly tortured, despite having the wherewithal to work through his fears and become a paramedic after his tragic loss. Caden feels real to me, with light and dark parts (no pun intended) that make up all of us. He isn't a fantasy character with superhuman qualities - He's the guy you just passed in the hall.

My Perfect Caden:

Wentworth Miller! Yes, I've used him before, but I got this one straight from the author, The lovely and accommodating Miz Laura Kaye.  Plus, its Wentworth - I will shamelessly 
use every opportunity to drool on him. Who doesn't want to nibble that jawline? I ASK YOU.
