Who Doesn't Love a Bad Boy? #Hop

Who doesn't love a bad boy? I know I sure do! So I'm excited to participate in this awesome Bad Boys of Romance Blog Hop!

My all-time favorite bad boy? You guys probably already know!



Zsadist, son of Ahgony, twin of Phury, warrior of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, from J.R. Ward’s Lover Awakened.

Why do I love him?

A former blood slave stolen from his family and held and used against his will for a century, he bears scars on the inside and the out. After his rescue, he is filled with an unquenchable fury and abject humiliation and he strikes out against friend and foe alike. He is the ultimate anti-hero.

I love Zsadist because his scars ran the deepest, his sense of self was the most shattered, he felt the least worthy of love, his need for redemption was the greatest and his achieving of it the most powerful. And for all these reasons, Lover Awakened is my all-time favorite romance, hands down. I have re-read it so frequently I no longer know the number of times. I have talked about it so much that my author friends no longer think it’s strange that I don’t like when they say they like Zsadist because, you know, as a bonded female and all, I just really can’t handle anyone else expressing their interest in him. *winks*

Thanks for hopping!

Laura

Favorite bad boys in romance? Well, I suppose Gabriel comes to mind from Sylvain Reynard's Gabriel's Inferno series. Simon from Alice Clayton's Wallbanger could be another.

Thank you so much for having the contest. I REALLY want to read more of your books, so fingers crossed! :-)

Best Wishes,
Lindsey V.

There are so many bad boys I love! Since there are too many to list I will go with my favorite Paranormal Bad Boy which has got to be Sammael from Cynthia Eden's Angel Betrayed. I had a love/hate relationship with him when I first read about him in Angels of Darkness but boy did I love him by the end of Angel Betrayed. :)

I don't really read strictly romance books. I like sci-fi, paranormal, and some of the best bad boys have come from anime, especially the anti-hero, which is my favorite. My favs are Lelouch from Code Geass and Light Yagami from Death Note. They are bad boys you really, really wish you could side with, but at the same time, you know their methods are completely wrong.

Anyway, thanks so much for the giveaway :)

nurmawati djuhawan said...

i love bones from jeanine frost novels...

Meghan said...

Mmmm… bad boys. Excuse me while I salivate. To pick just one bad boy is so very hard, but I will try! I enjoy Christian Grey (who wouldn't? Am I right, ladies?). His compulsive need to control is scary and hot all at the same time. Another bad boy who has me slobbering all over myself is Travis from "Beautiful Disaster!" A man who makes a living by punching the shit out of another man!?!?! Hold me back! Thanks for the giveaway! It's always a pleasure for me to participate in these, especially when the topic is so utterly delicious.

Cylver said...

I can't decide between Bones (Night Huntress by Jeaniene Frost) or Raphael (Vampires in America by D.B. Reynolds). Bad boys to the core, they'll both die to protect the ones they love, but whatever you do, just don't make them mad!

Gabby said...

First of all I totally agree with you about Zsadist being one of the ultimate bad boys, even after reading the other books in Ward's BDB series Zsadist is still my favorite!

As for my other favorite bad boy's or anti-heroes, Zarek is another one for a few of the same reasons that Zsadist is. He has a hell of a temper and is hated by at least four or five of his fellow dark hunters.

Deep down his life has been almost as painful as Zsadist's, hated by his father and brothers he was physically and emotionally scarred possibly beyond redemption but like Zsadist he just needed someone to see in him what no one else could or would see.

He plays the kind of jerk-face character that people feel cannot be liked much less loved. He's had to deal with a lot, the way he managed to understand he was capable of loving and being loved is why I think he's one of my favorite bad boys!

Thanks for the giveaway!
