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

We all love book boyfriends, so Man Candy Monday is all about sharing the love…and the hot guys around by letting everyone know the book boyfriend you have been swooning over this last week, and why!

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.

This week The Book Lovers is featuring *SPOILER* Nash Davenport from the UHMAZING Bad Boys series by the great M.Leighton.

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):

Day 04 – Favorite book of your favorite series

1271003512710106Sinners on Tour – Olivia Cunning

There are two books that I absolutely love (Not saying the rest aren’t amazing, because they are) but I fell in love with the two guys during their books.

1. Hot Ticket – Jace
2. Double Time – Trey

 

12647642Love Series – Tina Reber

Favourite book of this series was the last one – Love Unrehearsed. They had gone through so much crap and to come through at the end, happier than ever. Well I do love a Happily Ever After.

 

15748335Cherrie Lynn’s series

Fav book was Leave me Breathless. The other books are freaking great but there is just something about Ghost that drew me to him and his story.

 

 

16093188Bad Boys Series – M. Leighton

I honestly cannot choose between the two books. But the sex in book two – Up To Me, holy moly. That might have to win because of it.

 

 

imagesThe Hunger Game series – Suzanne Collins

Fav book is Catching Fire.

Up to Me (The Bad Boys #2) – M. Leighton

16093188Synopsis

Happily ever after doesn’t come easy. But for love, it’s always worth the fight.

Olivia finds bliss unlike any she’s ever known in Cash’s arms. He sets her skin on fire and melts her heart right inside her chest. Unfortunately, their happily ever after is short-lived when a shadow from Cash’s past threatens to turn their world upside down.

Dangerous people from his father’s world have discovered that Cash holds information that could put them away for a very long time. And they’re willing to do anything—and hurt anybody—to get it back. Giving it up means Cash must choose between the life of his father and the life of Olivia.

Having nearly overcome her wariness of bad boys, Olivia’s trust is shaken when this new threat arises. Now she finds that Cash is not only a danger to her heart, but his family has associations that are a danger to her life as well. She soon discovers that there are some situations in life where trust is a girl’s only option. And this is one of them. If she’s to live, she must trust Cash with her life. But to Olivia, that’s much, much easier than letting go and trusting him with her heart.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

My Review

Olivia and Cash have finally found bliss like no other with each other. They are finally with the person who sets their world alight at every corner. But their happily-ever-after is threatened abruptly when people from Cash’s past begin to turn his world upside and they will do anything – even if it means killing – to stop the information Cash has from getting out.

Giving up the information is a hard bargain and it means that Cash must choose between his father’s life and Olivia’s life. He will do whatever it takes to keep them both safe, but he needs Olivia to trust him if it means she can be protected and kept alive. Can Olivia trust Cash? Even when she is utterly scared of the situation at hand? Especially when her life is now also in danger? Trusting Cash with her life is easy; it’s just trusting him with her heart that’s the hard part.

It’s really hard to write a review for Up To Me because so much of it is spoilers! So I’m going to have to be very careful in what I say about this book so if anyone who hasn’t read it yet, won’t go into the book knowing too much about the plot. It does start off from where Down To You finishes so if you haven’t read that, what are you waiting for?

A lot happens in this book. There is more action, more suspense and steamier sex scenes. But that is all I’m going to say because I’ll be a spoiler review and I really want you to go into the book not knowing a hell of a lot about what it’s about.

Cash is still his sexy self. Even more so in this book because you see his character develop even more throughout his chapters. He’s even more determined to keep Olivia safe and his feelings for her shine with every page. Being a ‘bad boy’ and never staying with one girl, it was great to see how much he cared for Olivia and how much it scared him too. He’s just as vulnerable as the next guy when threats are targeted at him and people he loves and I really liked seeing so much emotion from him. It proves how strong his feelings are for Olivia and just how he will do anything to be with her.

The sexiness of Cash throughout the book to me stems from him being in danger – yes, I’m a girl who likes a guy who will protect her at any cost – and taking reins on the plans of putting away the dangerous people from his father’s past in order to keep everyone safe. Even when trying to protect everyone, he’s still the same old Cash we all fell in love with in book one, the one who knows how to swoon Olivia and knows how to work her body in the bedroom. The sex scenes, Jesus Christ, I need to find someone who will re-in-act those scenes with me! They were hot and steamy and you could feel the sexual tension pouring from the pages when those two were together. I’d also like a bottle of Jack Daniels and Cash ASAP please!

With Olivia, she’s obviously had to grow up a lot since book one, even though it continues straight away but with everything that has happened in the first few pages, it was obvious that although she totally loved Cash, she was utterly scared shitless about everything that was happening and going to happen in her and Cash’s life. They were in danger and she was petrified to lose Cash. And although she had mental battles, she knew she’d never leave Cash and their relationship just grew stronger and stronger towards the end of this book. It did start off a little rocky, with Olivia seemingly pulling away from Cash and when she didn’t listen to Gavin in the middle – STUPID GIRL! But Olivia went through a lot in this book and with both alternating views, I loved how much they were both scared to be without one another and would do anything to be with each other in the end.

Uhhh Gavin! Can I have him and Cash in my bed please? Gavin is Cash’s partner at the club but he also has a dark past. He used to be a mercenary and his character makes him out to be a sexy, hot, dangerous and mysterious bad boy. He’s one you should definitely stay away from but holy hell, since when do any of us listen?! I’d have him in a heartbeat. Despite his past, he’s cheeky and funny and his banter with everyone, especially Cash is great to read. You can see that they truly are best friends and he will do anything for Cash. I hope down the line, he gets his own book, because I’d love to know more about him.

I do have to say that there is a MAJOR surprise in this book. One I was not expecting at all but by god, it was a bloody good one! I’m so not going to say what it is, but you will be going ‘HOLY SHIT’ when it’s revealed.

Up To Me is a sexy and exciting follow up to Down To You which includes sexy times, action, twists, bad guys and banter. I cannot wait for book three to be out and I know who it is about…but I’m not going to say as you have to read Up To Me to find out. But from the epilogue, I am definitely curious about what is going to happen. DEFINITELY read Down To You and Up To Me. You will not be disappointed and you too, will fall for Cash Davenport. YUMMY!
