Book Boyfriend: Rafa from Paula Weston's Rephaim Series

So I've seen this meme floating around many book blogs, but initially I got the idea from Reading Lark and they got this meme from The Unread Reader. I've enjoyed the meme so much that I will also be joining in on the fun on Wednesdays. Welcome to Book Boyfriends everyone!

  • Green eyes
  • Dark Blond Hair
  • Muscular build from Demon fighting

Why He's My Book Boyfriend:

My god, he's just so sexy. From his sarcastic attitude to the way he tears through hellions, I just swoon as soon as he's on the page. He's pretty rugged and strong from spending his time fighting demons, but he also has a tender side. Like a lot of boyfriends he has his faults, he's sometimes a little too rough around the edges but I could work with that haha. He's sweet when he's around Gaby, so does it really matter that he's grouchy towards most others? 

Actor to be my Rafa:
The first actor that comes to mind for this part is Theo James. After seeing him in Divergent, I think he's perfect. Four and Rafa are similar in their attitude, their strength (at least physically), and Theo has the training to pull off all of Rafa's fight scenes.

Quotes from and about Rafa: 

1) 'Gabe,' Rafa says, and I bite my lip. 'I know. I'll take care of it.' He leans closer. His T-shirt is twisted between my fingers. 'It's been a long time since you asked me for anything. I'm not going to fuck it up.'

'Any chance you could ease up on being an arsehole for a while as well?'

'That I can't promise.'

2) 'So why wouldn't Gabe forgive you?' I hate talking about myself in the third person, but I have to: she's not me. 

His fingers lightly brush my skin. 'I told you,' he says, 'you and me, we haven't been on good terms for a long time. So if I took advantage of the fact you don't remember why, and then you got your memory back…' He gives me a grim smile. 'You'd probably make a coin purse out of my balls.

'Nah,' I say lightly, like his rejection doesn't sting. 'I'd want something big enough to carry more than five-cent pieces.'

3)'Do you want me to stop?' His hair is damp on his forehead.


He leans forward until his face is only centimetres from mine. I don't move back. The last few days recede. The only history between us, the one he won't tell me about, melts away under the warm sun. And then Rafa kisses me, not with urgency of our last encounter, but softly, thoughtfully. He tastes like oranges, His hands stay on my ankle restrained. The kiss deepens. I slide my palm up his thigh. He stops me and pulls back. 'You're killing me, you know that?'

'Do you want me to stop?' I mean to sound playful but it comes out breathless.


4)"Rafa glances at me as we walk. His hair looks fairer out here in the sunlight. Right now I'd like to run my fingers through it, get a good handful, and smack his head into the brick wall we're passing."
