The Selection by Kiera Cass

True love is usually the most inconvenient kind

For thirty-five girls, the Selection i13564634s the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the
life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

Hey Bloggers!

So, in almost every known book there is always some aspect of a romantic plot line.

Point is – if there is romance then it can be amused that there is a seriously delicious guy involved. Book boyfriends – we’ve all had them and, if you’re anything like me you’ve had many. So today I’m going to share with you some (key word here being some because let’s face it, not all of my guys will fit on this list!) of my fictional boyfriends.
