Stephanie (Bookfever. ❤) (bookfever) Barrons without a thought.


message 2: by Carleny (new)

Carleny (Sofiel) I just started reading the Rachel Morgan series by Kim Harrison and I have come to the conclusion that I hate Rachel but I love love love Jenks the pixy. He has his moments of course, but I love him the best of all the male characters I've read so far in the series. Though I've come to the conclusion that it's hard to find male characters to like if all they do is whisk the girl away to keep her safe and be dashing and whatnot... I enjoy a strong female character that doesn't let a man do everything for her.


Stephanie (Bookfever. ❤) (bookfever) I love The Hollows! Jenks is epic!

Okay, honestly, Trent is awesome sauce, too... though I have only read the first book so all I know is that he's a bad guy and that no one knows whether he's an Inderlander or a human... and I'm going to wait a while before reading the second book, though, because I really hate Rachel.

I'm with you on Jenks! He rules the Hollows!!!

Sharon (ShazFly) | 11 comments If any of you have read my first UF novel, you'll be familiar with Razor - he's the heroine's pet (45 lb)cat, for those of you who haven't read it - He gets the most fan mail and mentions in my reviews out of all my male characters - So I'd have to nominate him ;-)

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) In UF, I'd definitely have to go with Adam Hauptman and Samuel Cornick (Mercy Thompson), Bran and Charles Cornick (Alpha and Omega) by Patricia Briggs and I agree with Juli about Clayton Danvers (Otherworld) by Kelley Armstrong.

I am a sucker for Edward Cullen, I freely admit!


message 20: by Raelene (new)

Raelene  (Kretch) | 4 comments I love all the male Vampires in Lara Adrians breed series, each one dashing, and different.

message 24: by Jessi (new)

Jessi (PixiBell) | 104 comments But it's also the first time you get a peek into Ben and why he's the way he is...I can't wait for him to get his own HEA he def deserves it.

message 27: by Jessi (new)

Jessi (PixiBell) | 104 comments I'm rooting for a whole book about Ben maybe the first in a Mercy Thompson world series...


message 28: by Ela (new)

Ela Jessi wrote: "I'm rooting for a whole book about Ben maybe the first in a Mercy Thompson world series..."

I would quite like a prequel for him, while he was still in England, or ppossibly about his transition to Adam's pack...anything set before Moon Calls sound good :D

Or maybe a 5-6 chapter prologue about his life in London then they jump to the current timeline in Mercy's world

I totally agree!!


message 32: by ☀Rachael☀ (new)

☀Rachael☀ (jimbunni) I don't think she realises Mercy fans need their Mercy hit! And Adam and Warren even Ben!

Ela Scotia wrote: "Jessi wrote: "Maybe we should start a petition here on goodreads or a poll or something"

Yeah! It does not take 3 years to write a book... she's doing this on purpose =P"


Yep, she's trying to tease us into insanity and the horrible thing is...it will work!!


message 35: by Jessi (new)

Jessi (PixiBell) | 104 comments I think i'd be okay if she gave us snippets like Ilona Andrews does...And okay to be fair we did have Fair Game in February but she could write or release a novella between now and next year....maybe an update on Mercy's injuries and pack dynamics.

Yeah...but at least when she does release it, it will be good, I can't stand it when authors just churn out loads of mediocre books.

Really with you on this part of your list although maybe not quite in the same order. Not the same genre, but I have to add Ranger from Stephanie Plum. He's just... yum. Also Tod from Soul Screamers, and Anyan from Jane True. Then there is Jeremy, and Lucas from Women of Otherworld (Okay, Clay, too... but not as much) and Derek from Darkest Powers. Those are the highlights for me. I could read about them for a month and not get tired of them :)

Thanks although with me being introduced to never before read series my list is growing...Maybe I should change it to my favorite male characters per series.

That'd be easier wouldn't it? I hadn't read much Paranormal or Urban Fantasy prior to finding the Kelley Armstrong books, so now I have a whole new crop of favorite male characters to enjoy. But I still had to throw Ranger in there. Even if he doesn't fit in the genre
