New Adult Alley is hosting the New Adult Crush Tournament and today Tristan from Kristie Cook's Soul Savers Series is up against Rush from Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines. Here is what his Advocate Lisa from A Life Bound by Books has to say about him:
Hi everyone! My name is Lisa and I run the book review blog – A Life Bound By Books. I read as much as I can, I swoon over book boys often and I try my best to let everyone know when I've found a book, character and author they shouldn't miss! Besides reading (Strange to say that, right?) it’s all about family, friends, and probably too much TV and movies, but enough about me, how about we get down to why I’m here today?
I was beyond excited to have been chosen as advocate for one of my FAVORITE lead male characters Tristan Knight from the Soul Saver Series by author Kristie Cook!! For those who know who he is, scroll on down to the bottom of this post and hit the VOTE FOR TRISTAN button. And those of you who haven’t found this amazing character yet, read on, you have NO idea what you've been missing.
How about some info to give you a good picture of the man himself? "6'3", panty-melting body harnessing every power his creators could give him, he's the most dangerous creature on earth. And he'll literally give you his heart. What more could you ask for in a book boyfriend?" I know right?
Some physical features to help round out this beautiful warrior –
Sandy brown hair, hazel eyes with a wide band of emerald and gold sparkles.
"It wasn't right for a guy to be so incredibly attractive. Besides how tall he stood—towering at least a foot over my five-two—I noticed his hazel eyes first. They pulled me into their staggering beauty, with a wide ring of emerald green on the outside of the irises and brown around the pupils with gold specks that seemed to . . . sparkle. They were fringed with such long, dark lashes that it was unfair they were on a guy. His facial features were flawless—a square jaw, full lips and a golden suntan—better than any movie star or model. Sandy brown hair, longer on top and streaked by the sun, topped off his perfection. And then he smiled magnificently and the gold flecks in his eyes sparkled brighter, like when the sun hits gold flakes in a mining pan." - (Promise)
He's not all brawn, but he has brains, too. He speaks 7 languages, is a math guru and an amazing artist - he brings those together with his interest in architecture. He even designed his own home.
“I’m Tristan . . . in case you didn't catch it.” - (Promise)
I have proof that he's beautiful on the inside too.
He’s fiercely protective of those he cares about and loves –
“I’ll fight for you until the end of my days.” - (Promise)
He’s sexy and flirtatious –
“I showed you mine. Will you show me yours?” - (Promise)
He’s utterly romantic –
"Without your love, without you in my life, I am nothing but darkness.” – (Promise)
He knows how to love as fierce as he fights –
"I will take care of you, honor and protect you, for as long as I live, into eternity. I lay down my life for you, Alexis, my friend and my love. Today I give to you, me.” – (Promise)
Prepare to swoon ladies -
“I couldn't wait for people to see you in that dress. Because you are with me. Forever.” He leaned closer, his lips tickling my ear. “At least let me enjoy it now, because I will have you out of that dress soon enough.” - (Promise)
The thing about this ultimate alpha male is that with all the amazing things about him, he also a motorcycle riding bad boy that lurks just underneath the surface. Tender when he needs to be to all who are in need and watch out for his temper to all who hurt anyone in need or who can't defend themselves.
What more could any person want when it comes to a swoon-able book boy? Well, there’s more so keep reading.
Tristan was created to be the perfect warrior. He’s survived more than most could, he’s changed and he has literally cut out a part of his heart to give to the one that he loves.
It’s his loyalty, commitment, love, strength, inside and out that gives the x factor of book crush characters.
If he sounds like a guy you would vote for, head over to New Adult Alley and VOTE please! Thanks so much!
