BAD BOY #1: Noah Shaw
Mara Dyer Series by Michelle Hodkin.

British bad boy whose “strong jaw and chin were slightly scruffy, as though he hadn’t shaved in days, and his eyes look gray in the shade. Strands of his dark chestnut hair stuck out every which way. Bedroom hair….He was beautiful.“…and *gasp* he smokes.

“You have no idea what you do to me,” he said as he stood. “I could barely keep my hands off you last night, even after seeing what you’d been through this week. Even after knowing how wrecked you were when you told me. And I”m going to spend an eternity in hell for that dream I had about you on your birthday. But if I could call it up again, I’d spend it twice.”
― Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

― Jennifer L. Armentrout, Obsidian

“You’re kind of dirty, Kitten.”
I blinked. Deny. Deny. Deny. “What did you say?”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, Obsidian

BAD BOY #3: Warner
Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi.

Warner: 19, ruthless Re-establishment leader of Sector 45, blonde hair, green eyes, tattoos, obsessive compulsive, good with his hands… when dealing with weapons, of course. From Juliette: “His skin is flawless, unblemished, his jawline sharp and strong. His eyes are the palest shade of emerald I’ve ever seen. He’s beautiful. His crooked smile is calculated evil.”

“Because I want her.
I want nothing between us.
I want her clothes off and the lights on and I want to study her. I want to unzip her out of this dress and take my time with every inch of her. I can’t help the need to just stare; to know her and her features: the slope of her nose, the curve of her lips, the line of her jaw. I want to run my fingertips across the soft skin of her neck and trace it all the way down. I want to feel the weight of her pressed against me, wrapped around me.”
― Tahereh Mafi, Destroy Me

BAD BOY #4: Brennus de Graham
The Premonition Series by Amy A. Bartol.

Undead faerie (vampire) with an Irish accent. A warrior who oozes confidence and sex. Oh, and he always gets what he wants. Hello!

“Come now, I am a guilty pleasure at da very least, ” he replies seductively. His hands trace my silhouette as if memorizing the shape of me. “Ye are na alone anymore, ye are part of dis family. Together ye and I will be more powerful den anyting ye can imagine.” He brushes the hair back from my face with a growing darkness in his eyes. “Can ye na feel me in yer blood?” he whispers against my neck, his cool lips toying with me, causing my pulse to beat harder against those lips. “I can feel ye in me bones. I crave the innocence in ye; even as I want ta take it from ye, so dat I can teach ye whah lies beyond dat innocence. I love ye, mo choroí, he whispers. “I will love ye forever.
Amy Bartol, Indebted

BAD BOY #5: Jackson Deveaux
The Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole.

Tousled, jet black hair. Deeply tanned. Squared jaw, strong chin and an unknowable look in his stormy gray eyes.. With his mile-long rap sheet and wicked grin, Cajun bad boy, Jackson Deveaux is like no boy Evie has ever known.

“If you touch me like that again, Evangeline,” he began in a husky tone, dropping to his seat once more, “in the space of a heartbeat, I will have you off this bike and onto the closest horizontal surface. And I won’t be picky, no.”
― Kresley Cole, Poison Princess

BAD BOY #6: Bishop and Kraven
Nightwatchers Series by Michelle Rowen.

Bishop, who wore a t-shirt that “fit tight across his chest like it was a couple of sizes too small” with vivid blue eyes and smelled spicy and sweet. Kraven, who is deliciously rude and has a freckle at the corner of his mouth. Sign me up!

Let go of me!” I wanted to struggle, but I couldn’t move much for fear that the knife would cut me. His body pressed against mine, effortlessly pinning me. His short hair was now slicked to his forehead from the rain and his eyes glowed-with bright blue. Before I’d found his eyes beautiful, but now they were absolutely terrifying.
― Michelle Rowen, Dark Kiss (Samantha about Bishop)

There’s something special about her. When she helped me with her touch-”
“Exactly what was she touching that was so memorable for you?”
“Watch your mouth.”
― Michelle Rowen, Dark Kiss (Kraven to Bishop)

winner can pick this book or a pre-order of Wicked Kiss

BAD BOY #7: Sam
Altered Series by Jennifer Rush.

Sam might be the quietest of the bad boys here but he has a muscularly lean body massive tattoo all over his back and isn’t afraid to use a gun. Luckily we had Anna as a heroine to chip away as his icy exterior so we could see how delicious he really is.

I pulled away. He stopped me with a hand on my wrist. “Wait,” he said, his voice undeniable throaty. I sank back against the wall. “I know what you’re thinking.”


His lips looked redder, wetter. My pulse thumped against my ribs.

“It’s written all over your face.” He pushed a lock of hair out of my eyes. “I’m not going anywhere.”

“I never said you were.” But my voice came out an uncertain whisper.

His hand went to my waist as his eyes met mine. His fingers found bare flesh beneath the hem of my T-shirt and pressed. Ever nerve ending in my body thrummed in response.

“Sam,” I said, though I couldn’t seem to pull together the rest of what I wanted to say, all the things I should have said.

He leaned in and brushed his lips against mine, feather-light at first, then more eager. My heart thundered as he exhaled, like he’d been holding the air in his lungs for far too long.

My hands walked up his biceps as his fingers threaded through my hair, sending ribbons of heat down to my skull. He pressed into me as if he couldn’t get close enough, and I pressed back. Because I wasn’t close enough. Because I’d spent the last several years of my life wishing I could be closer.
―Jennifer Rush, Altered

BAD BOY #8: Kaidan Rowe
Sweet Evil Series by Wendy Higgins.

A drummer with an English accent who is “sexy like it was his job or something”.  Dark hair that falls over his beautiful blue eyes, he is HOTT according to Anna…and well worthy of the extra T!!  The son of the Duke of Lust, whose real job is it is to make humans embrace the dark, sexy side of life…need we say more?!?!  Oh, and just in case you’re wondering, his name is Kai “like Thai only yummier”…that’s right *nods and grins*

What do you want from me Kai?”
“For starters?”  His voice lowered to sexy, dangerous depths.  “I want to introduce myself to every freckle on your body.”
A powerful shiver ripped through me.”
― Wendy Higgins, Sweet Evil (Anna and Kaiden)

BAD BOY #9: Alex Fuentes
Perfect Chemistry Series by Simone Elkeles.

Dark hair, chocolate eyes, tattoos, bad mouth, lots of attitude. Yes, please!

She looks up at me with those vulnerable eyes. “What if it means something?” She asks.
“What if it does?”
“Promise me it won’t mean anything.”
I lean my head back on the couch. “It won’t mean anythin’.” Aren’t I supposed to be the guy in this scenario, laying down the no-commitment rules?
“And no tongue,” she adds.
“Mi vida, if I kiss you, I guarantee there’s gonna be tongue.”
― Simone Elkeles, Perfect Chemistry
