The rules are simple for this meme: pick a boy from a romance novel you’ve read, give us his stats, a pic, and a quote.
This week, I’ve chosen Andrew Copeland – or Cope – from Lauren Dane’s Inside Out. I love Dane’s men so much. A lot of them are very, uh, experienced so the conflict comes in when the girl the guy really wants has to deal with all his former lovers around town. Of course, the guy is always faithful and always magnificent.
Stats: Little over 6 ft, black hair, piercing blue eyes and a ginormous dragon tattoo on his back. Oh, did I forget the nipple ring? Yeah, that too.
Cope is sexy because a.) he’s been pining for Ella for a year and he finds all these new things to like about her. Also? He has the reputation of being sort of a player but he’s so much more: a lover of poetry and very crafty with his hands. He works on his house all the time but none of his family ever realized how talented he is so his wonderful character traits get sort of forgotten. Of course, his Ella sees this. 🙂
Here’s how I pictured him:
Maybe not in so much leather but otherwise, that way. And here are some tat shots that my imagination figures are accurate:
Dane’s men are so sexy but also, they are flawed. Cope was definitely unsure of himself. Here’s a quote:
“So you get this thing that’s like the best kind of high ever, this thing that fills you up, makes you whole and fuels you. You never expected it, you watched your friends find it, but what it looks like, no matter how good it looks from the outside, you can’t understand just what it feels like to have it yourself. You get used to that. Find a rhythm that’s totally natural. She fits me; I fit her.”
He and Ella communicate via letter (in the same town!) a lot and he goes on to write her something to accompany a sketch he did of her:
“This is what I see. This is what I feel. This is what I want to feel every day for the rest of my life, and you’re the only one who can make me this way. Let me love you, and I promise you all of me.”
And with that, I die.
