My Book Boyfriend Four Divergent


My Book Boyfriend #1

from Divergent 
by Veronica Roth 

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush who makes us swoon hosted by Missie from The Unread Reader.

Check out my review of Divergent!

  • eighteen years old
  • member of the Faction called Dauntless
  • extremely deep set, very dark blue eyes
  • long and slender fingers
  • several tattoos that aren't easily visible

Four is brave, strong, sensitive when he needs to be and ruthless when he has to be.  Although, I don't think that Veronica Roth did the hero in Divergent, named Four, justice in her descriptions, he still managed to make me swoon a couple times. I tried to block out the picture her words painted and paint one all my own. The actor Max Irons was a perfect match...

"My first instinct is to push you until you break, just to see how hard I have to press." he says, his fingers squeezing at the word break. My body tenses at the edge in his voice, so I am coiled as tight as a spring, and I forget to breathe.

His dark eyes lifting to mine, he adds, "But I resist it."

"Why..." I swallow hard. "Why is that your first instinct?"

"Fear doesn't shut you down; it wakes you up. I've seen it. It's fascinating." He releases me but doesn't pull away, his hand grazing my jaw, my neck. "Sometimes I just want to see it again. Want to see you awake."

""What do you want?" Then his face tightens  "Me?" Slowly I nod. He nods too, and takes my hand in his gently.  He guides my palms to his stomach.  His eyes lowered, he pushes my hands up, over his neck.  My palms tingle with the feel of his skin, smooth, warm.  My face is hot, but I shiver anyway."

These last three are all fantastic fanart from DefynGravity

I completely agree with the choice of Saoirse Ronan as Tris. She was actually the actress I pictured after seeing her in the fantastic movie Hanna.

I love Max Irons! Fell in love with him since seeing him play Henry in RRH. And that Saoirse Ronan girl has really grown up. Such a cute pair.

Four sounds like a great hero type. I'd love to take a peek at his tats. :)

Oooo, I wanna see the ink!!  Even though he is legal, still feels like jail bait to me, though :(  Nice choice nonetheless!

Whoa, I already wanted to read this book but Four sounds AMAZING -  even more so if he looks like Max Irons, who I'm totally obsessed with right now. Awesome post! :D
