Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week the theme is my fictional crushes.

I have not done a TTT in a while. But with a bad boy at home, whom I can call mine, this theme literally screamed for me. *smile*

1. Bennett Ryan from the Beautiful Bastard series by Christina Lauren
He is and always will be the ultimate bad boy boyfriend a girl could possibly dream of. I call him sex on two legs. No matter what others think, he doesn´t care about rules or what society sees as appropriate. And aside from his sexy, dark image, he protects what he calls his.

2. Cameron Quinn from the Chesapeake Bay Saga by Nora Roberts
This man is pure sex. Speed is his passion, but despite that, he has the heart in the right place. He knows what he wants and how to get it. But he also is there when his family, first and foremost his father calls him to take care of the youngest of the four Quinn brothers.

3. Simon Doyle from the novel The Search by Nora Roberts
He and his dog Jaws took my heart by storm. He is as masculine as you can imagine. Knows to get what he wants when he wants it and how he wants it. And he needs only two words to make his Lady fall for him completely.

4. Rhysand from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas
I love the bad boy image the High Lord of the Night Court shows the world. He is a dark and masculine figure who understands to hide his sensitive side perfectly. He helps Feyre when she needs it the most but still knows how to pull the right strings to make her feel everything, she doesn´t want to feel.

5. Edward from the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer
Yes, I know it is pure cliché, but he was one of my first fictional crushes. He is dark, sensitive and despite all his power and great looks as vulnerable as one can get when it comes to Bella.

6. Jace from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
His dark, grim way caught me from the first moment. He seems to be one mystery but when you get to know him a bit, you can see that he is full of emotions.

7. Victor Vale from the Villains Dilogy by V. E. Schwab
He is as dark and grim as he is sexy. Not in the usual way, but he is some sort of sexy. Trust is not how he handles things, but you can count on him when he is seeing you as one of his “family”.

8. Leo Maxwell from the Hudson Valley trilogy by Alice Clayton
Gosh, how he sees the world, and how he reacts when Roxie freaks out under the walnut tree – priceless. He is masculine as heck and knows what women want. A man with a golden heart.

9. Harry Potter from the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
Believe it or not, but he had my heart the moment I read the first line about him. I know, he is totally different from all the other fictional characters I name here but not less great with the good heart and love he feels for his friends and Hogwarts.

10. David from the Heart trilogy by Kathrin Lange
A charismatic and very handsome young man. Still a teenager but in his heart already a young man who has gone through a tragedy. He knows pain and loss as much as grief and despair. His dark mood makes him so incredibly irresistible and sexy. Well, girls want what they can´t have, right?!

Happy reading



  1. Rhysand has been a very popular choice this week!

    My post:

    1. Girls and bad boys *smile* Guess that makes him so fascinating.

  2. I don’t think I have met any of your crushes, other than Harry.

    When you get the chance, I hope you can stop by my post and check it out:

    1. I like it that some of us never met the crushes others wrote into their TTT post. If we would love all the same figures and authors, life would be boring, wouldn´t it?! Thank you for stopping by. Happy reading.

  3. I see Rhysand show up quite a bit. :)

  4. We've got some book boyfriends in common! Rhysand, Edward and Jace 😍

    1. Yay! I am so glad that we love the same figures 💕

  5. Rhysand made my list this week too. Jace is a great pick as well.

    1. Seems the High Lord of the Night court is a fictional crush for some of us *smile*
