**Sidekick Showcase #32 ~ Book Boyfriends**

Sidekick Showcase (previously known as Sidekick Saturday) is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn't have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in this week's type

• Share a picture (if possible) and information about the character
• Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don't include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• Put your link in the Linky thing and comment

For this month of LOVE, our sidekicks will be of the romantic persuasion...or just plain HOT! Yep, that's right. I'm gonna share my book boyfriends this month. Enjoy it because I don't really like to share. *grins*

My first pick is
Daemon Black
from Jennifer L. Armentrout's Lux Series

I think Katy described Daemon best when she said 

"Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy."

He IS all those things. He is also H.O.T. with the brilliant green eyes and beautiful body. He also has a sensitive side, which, of course, is what I really love about him. ;) He is loyal and protective and so very snarky and witty! And Katy and Daemon together equals LOTS of sexual tension and snarky banter. :)


Daemon arched a brow. "Are you feeling my up, Kat? I'm liking where this is heading." -Obsidian

"Why are you such an ass?" The words came out before I could think twice.
"Everyone has to excel at something, right?"
"Well, you're doing a great job." -Katy & Daemon, Obsidian

"I always liked you. From the moment you first flipped me off." -Daemon to Katy, Onyx

"Not in this lifetime, buddy," I said finally.
"Resistance is futile, Kitten."
"So is your charm."
"We'll see."
-Katy & Daemon, Onyx

Daemon pressed his forehead to mine. "Oh, I still want to strangle you. But I'm insane. You're crazy. Maybe that's why. We just make crazy together."
-Daemon to Katy, Onyx


  1. Oh I want to read this series! I'm generally not into aliens but I'll make an exception for this

    1. I'm not into aliens either, Braine. But believe me, you'll want to make an exception here. :)

  2. Ha! I have a friend who lays claim to Daemon. He's her favorite guy ever, I think more than her husband. lol Love the quotes!

    1. I'd love to lay claim to Daemon - in fact, I'm doing so right now! - but I'm pretty sure I got on this bandwagon later than most. :)

  3. I really want to read this series, I have had it on my TBR List for ages thanks for sharing. Aussiebookworm

    1. This is a series that for whatever reason, I dove into when I first got it. And I've not regretted it! ;)

  4. Ah yes :D Daemon Black - for anyone that hasn't read this series, I strongly recommend they do because he and Katy together = awesomesauce. I love this type of set up so much though. I think it's great when they don't get along at first. He is absolutely snarky, cocky, and incredibly hot and she hates her attraction to him. It is great!! His protectiveness and love when it happens is the most incredible thing to see and that switch while still keeping what makes him well him is what makes him so H.O.T. I strongly support this pick ;) Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

    1. LOL I'm thrilled you so strongly approve of my choice, Jaclyn! ;) Yeah, is swoony in every way. *sigh*

  5. I love Daemon now! When I read Obsidian, I hated him. I couldn't believe how cruelly he treated Katy in the beginning and it really really bothered me. I get why he did it, but still. It was a bit hard to swallow at first. After I read Onyx, Opal, and Origin- there was no doubt in my mind I loved the boy like crazy! :D

    1. I'm glad you love him, Jessica. But I laid claim to him (see comment above ;) so he's mine! And I'll share...reluctantly. LOL

  6. Oh goodness, these two. I loved how Katy did not like him at all! I didn't either. He was such a shit! Katy's description is spot on! I hope you had a great weekend, Brandee!

  7. But he is a HOT shit, right?!? Or just hot shit?!? LOL I hope your weekend was wonderful, Robyn. Mine was exhausting but good. :)


Now you know what I think...what are your thoughts??
