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!

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...
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.
