Every Monday, Blame It On The Book Lovers will be discussing their favourite book boyfriend of that week in a meme called MANCANDY MONDAY!

Once you’ve posted your mancandy on your own blog, come back and post the link. We all want to know WHO your mancandy is this week and swoon right along with you.

Charlie-Hunnam-Entertainment-Weekly-Photoshoot-sons-of-anarchy-32813999-810-1214

YES! Charlie Hunnam is DEFINITELY Nash!

So Nash is my Mancandy this week and SERIOUSLY how can he not be? Okay so i love his brother Cash, but after reading Everything For Us, well Nash kind of overtook Cash by a little bit…Okay a lot.

The reason Nash is my mancandy? He has been through SO much since he was supposed to be ‘dead’. He has been at sea for seven years, done things that he wouldn’t wish upon anyone just to survive and has seen things you wouldn’t wish on anyone. He was just a kid when he was ‘sent’ away and now hes back, hes changed – as you would. Hes tough, hes rough and he feels nothing for no one. His feelings revolve around anger and revenge for the people who killed his mother and ruin his life.

But over time and in the book, we see his exterior falter, we see him begin to care and begin to let his guard down around Marissa. He reveals things about his life that he has never told anyone, which in turn means his numbness is slowly breaking down and he’s beginning to feel things that he hasn’t in years.

The more time he spends with Marissa, the more he is beginning to fall for her, yet the both of them are just clueless to each others feelings. Nash is slowly integrating back into society and he is falling in love with Marissa. She is the reason he is feeling and he wants to be with her.

Nash truly is an amazing character. From everything that has happens in his life, from the anger he has felt for years to wanting to get his revenge and then to unlocking feelings that he never thought would happen to falling for Marissa, well he certainly does change over the course of the book and you will most definitely fall in love with him throughout it, especially at the end!!

So i present my Mancandy as Nash this week.

If you have yet to read the Bad Boy Series, then here is the order (Goodreads links):

Laura Drake is an author. She writes bestselling paranormal romances that continue to top the charts. She is sharp. She is confident. She is in control.

And she doesn’t exist.

Samantha Jansen is the woman behind the wig, the woman most of the world doesn’t know exists. She is shy. She is insecure. She is nothing like her main character or her alter ego. She is scarred—deeply scarred—by a past she can’t let go of and a present she can’t make peace with.

Samantha’s dreams are consumed by one man, the broken hero from her books. Mason Strait is both her wildest fantasy and her most terrifying nightmare.

When Samantha meets Alec Brand, a corporate consultant, it is as though Mason has come to life. Alec is handsome to a fault, as elegant as he is arrogant, and more intense than any man has a right to be.

Samantha is soon sucked into a world that mirrors the fiction she writes. Just like her main character, Daire Kirby, Samantha finds herself unable to resist the forbidden lure of Alec. And just like Daire, she also finds that she is faced with taking a chance on a man who could either set her free or destroy her.

The scale tilts toward destruction when Samantha finds out that Alec is as much a work of fiction as Mason. And he has scars of his own, scars that could ruin them both.

Down To You – M. Leighton

16001893Synopsis

The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love triangle…that’s not. Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white. But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins.

Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her. Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together.

Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them. Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire. She wants them both. And they want her. How will she ever choose between them?

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

My Review

Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl in college trying to get through it so she can return home and help her father out on the farm and run his business for him. Living an hour away, she’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him so she’s going to get through college and move back home; even if it means putting her own life on hold to be with him.

But then she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. Sexy twins but completely different to each other. Cash is the bad boy and everything she wants in a guy, whereas Nash is successful and everything she needs in a guy. Only problem is he’s taken. But staying away from both of them is proving hard and thus starts a love triangle…that’s not really a triangle. But you’ll have to read to find out what that means.

Olivia is a shy, insecure girl but with the boys, they bring out her feisty and confident side. After Nash and Cash meet her, they are instantly attracted to her. They think she is gorgeous, funny, witty and smart but she doesn’t understand why they think that. She’s instantly attracted to both of them, but she has to decide which one she wants…both of them make her insides crumple every time they spent time together, so I know picking would have been so hard to do.

Cash. Swooon. What can I say about him? Well he’s a club owner, he’s successful, goes after what he wants, a bad boy (which I loveeee), and has tattoos. The first time he sees Olivia, he knows he wants her for himself, it’s just trying to make her see he isn’t like all the other bad boys she’s dated, he’s different – hence the secret he’s been keeping most of his life.

Oh Nash! I’m sorry but Cash stole my heart. Albeit, you were career driven, ambitious, taken by Olivia’s cousin and everything Olivia wanted in a man, but it just wasn’t enough. But where does Nash come in to the secret?

I completely loved Down To You. Everyone had been raving about it for weeks and although I had it on my Kindle, I had yet to read it. But I am so glad I did. I was captivated by the book and it took me about 3ish hours to read; that’s how involved I became. There are three POV’s in the book, from Olivia and the boys, and it worked amazingly well. It gave in insight into their feelings about the situations and about Olivia and how they felt about her. The POVs worked also; because of the twist at the end…well I didn’t see that coming at all.

There was so much chemistry between the boys and Olivia, but I must admit, Cash stole my heart. I felt he and Olivia were much more suited. They were just drawn together no matter how much Olivia didn’t want to be a badboy’s girlfriend again, she just couldn’t stop the attraction to him and Cash was the same. He wanted and needed Olivia for himself and to prove he wasn’t like all the other men she’s dated. He wouldn’t want to crush her heart or cause her pain.

When the secret came out, I wasn’t all that surprised by Olivia’s reaction. There are two parts to this secret, and the first part surprised me. It showed a more sad time of Cash’s past and to be honest, I felt for him having to go through it and do it for his family. It proved that Cash was like Nash. He was educated, he was sensitive and he was head over heels for Olivia. But those long days that Olivia ignored him, you could see he was in so much pain that he needed to get her back. And that’s exactly what he did.

I just can’t wait to Up To You to be released now. The ending was a pure shocker and I definitely need to know what is going to happen to Cash and Olivia! The teasers on M. Leighton’s website are totally not enough, I need more! And that club scene in the teaser. HOLY HELL GIVE ME THE BOOK NOW.  I can’t wait until January!
