My Book Boyfriend: Catcher Bell

We decided that Thursday needed a little pizazz and stumbled on this meme while hanging out at one of our favorite blogs, A Book and a Cupcake. 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 of the Week is Catcher Bell from the Chicagoland Vampires Series by Chloe Neill. 

In my mind, I sometimes see him as Desmond Harrington & other times I see him as David Beckham. Can't go wrong with either one, huh?

* Shaved Head 
* Pale Green Eyes
* Solidly ex-military look about him
* Muscular Body
* Full, Sensuous Lips
* Typically wears an annoyed expression on his face
* Washboard Abs
* Circular Tattoo on his stomach

Why He's My Book Boyfriend:
Catcher is just the right amount of badass, snarkiness, and romantic. I love that one minute he's teaching Merit how to use a sword and the next he's whispering sweet nothings in Mallory's ear. There is just also something about those jerky tendencies of his that make me swoon. At the end of the day, Mallory knows that she has him - body and soul. It is so hot to see a man so committed. He is also quite the athlete with stamina that is unparalleled. Plus, who doesn't want a sorcerer bad boy who now works as a supernatural cop?

Facts about Catcher:

* Nicknames: CB (he hates this one) and Sexy Bell
* 4th Class Sorcerer (that basically means he's a magical badass you don't want to mess with)
* Specializes in Weapons - tends to prefer steel
* Has the gift of prophecy
* 29 years old
* Shares a brownstone with girlfriend, Mallory Carmichael, in Wicker Park
* Addicted to Lifetime movies
* Loves to cook

"He's twenty-nine. And what did you think he was going to look like?"
She shrugged.
"You know-old. Grizzled. Long white beard. Scruffy robes. Loveable, smart, a little absent minded."
I bit back a grin.
" I said 'sorcerer,' not 'Dumbledore.' So he's hot. It could be worse."

"As we left the kitchen, I asked, “Can I hold your sword today?”
Catcher glanced back over his shoulder and lifted a brow.
The sword,” I corrected. “The sword.”
We’ll see."
— Chloe Neill (Some Girls Bite)

"Catcher snorted. “If we’re not playing naked Twister, we’re wasting our waking hours.”
“Yep,” Mallory said as she tugged him down the sidewalk, “that’s the love of my life. He’s a romantic at heart."
— Chloe Neill (Twice Bitten)

"Mallory!" Catcher's voice boomed down the stairs.

Mallory fixed her mouth into a tight line and walked me into the kitchen. "Ignore it," she advised. "Much like the bubonic plague, it'll go away if you give it enough time."

"Mallory! You weren't finished! Get back in here!"

I glanced up the stairway. "You didn't leave him handcuffed to the bed or something, did you?"

"Jesus, no." I incrementally relaxed, until she continued. "My headboard's a single piece of wood. There's nothing to handcuff him to."
— Chloe Neill
