Book Boyfriend of the Week: Echo from Grimnirs (Runes #2.5) by Ednah Walters ~ Teasers

This is a meme created by Reading and Things for bloggers to talk about their book boyfriends and tease the readers with things they've said.

Want to participate?

Then all you have to do is:

1) Pick a book boyfriend, it can be from the book your currently reading or from one you've already read.

2) Write what kind of boyfriend he is, and if you want, say why you think that.

3) Pick a quote from his book, long or short, that proves he is the kind of boyfriend you said he is.

4) Make sure the quote, and the explanation DO NOT give away anything from the book (we want all of the twists and plot surprises to remain surprises).

5) Share it! And shout it out using the #Reading and Things.

My Book Boyfriend this week is 

I chose Echo from Grimnirs (Runes #2.5) by Ednah Walters. He is a sexy, cocky, arrogant but sweet at times hunk of a guy. He is a Grimnir, who is immortal, If you have not checked out this series yet, you need too. Its amazing! Hope you enjoy the teasers I chose for this. Sorry for the lack of Book Boyfriend post lately, life has gotten in the way for some post, but should be back on track now to participate as much as I can.

Teaser #1 (cocky, arrogant, still sexy)

“Will you be serious for even a second?” I asked.
“Don’t you want to be mine forever?”
“Ew, no.” I made a face. “I don’t even like you.”
“What’s liking me got to do with anything? As long as you want me, I’m good.”
“I don’t want you.”
He gave me a slow wicked smile. “Want me to prove it?”
Silence followed, and I could feel heat crawling up my face. He reached out to touch my face, but I dodged his hand.
“Okay, I’m kidding about the blood,” he said. “But you can bite me any time.” He proudly showed me the bite mark I’d left on his hand. The runes on his hand glowed bright and the wound sealed, the blood disappearing too. “It’s nothing my runes can’t heal. To bond with me, sweet-cheeks, I’d have to rune you.”
“Rune me?”
“Etch these,” he pointed at his tattoos,

Teaser #2 (stubborn, tries to be honorable, kindof)

He tucked strands of my wet hair behind my ear and moved his hand as though to cup my face. He stopped, fisted his hand, and let it drop by his side. “St. James was right about me. I use people and discard them when I’m done. I play dirty and don’t care who gets hurt in the process as long as I win.”
He placed a finger on my lips. “Let me finish. I’ve been doing it for centuries, and I don’t think I can change. I’m no good for anyone, least of all you, doll-face.”
“Don’t say that!” I whispered.
He closed his eyes, and when he continued, his voice was heartbreakingly sad. “I will bring you nothing but misery and heartache, Cora. Believe me. I know what I’m talking about.” He opened his eyes and ran his thumb across my lips. His head dipped as though he was going to kiss me, but he stepped back, arm dropping to his side. “I shouldn’t even be touching you. Come on. I’ll escort you home.” He reached for car door and indicated I enter.
I pushed the door shut. “What do you mean by you know what you’re talking about?”
“It can’t work between us.”
“Why not?”
“You know why.”

Teaser #3 (Steamy, sexy, and just hot!)

“Tell me about your fantasies, Cora.”
Heat crawled up my face. I shook my head.
He leaned down, shifted his weight on one elbow, and kissed the skin above my tank top. He left a heated trail as his lips moved to my shoulder, one hand slipping under my tank top and caressing me intimately. I shivered. I didn’t know what to do with my hands, so I stroked his hair and shoulders. His muscles spasmed as though my touch sent a shock through him.
“If you tell me yours, I’ll tell you mine,” he whispered against my neck, and I shuddered at the sensation. “Please, Cora. Tell me about your darkest, juiciest fantasies.”
I tried to focus on the conversation, but my mind was slow to respond. “I want to undress you. Slowly.”
I couldn’t believe I’d actually said it. He went still, and I was sure he was going to laugh.
“Okay, doll-face. Undress me.” He jumped off the bed and waited, hands on his hips, stance cocky, and an intense sensual gleam in his eyes.
Heart pounding, anticipation making me dizzy, I slid off the bed and went to stand in front of him on wobbly legs. Biting my lower lip in concentration, I undid the next button on his vest.
“Look at me,” he ordered.
Our eyes met, and my hand went still. Heat leaped in his wolfish eyes. He brushed my lower lip, forcing me to relinquish it. Muttering a curse, he cupped the back of my head and captured my lips, his tongue slipping inside my mouth to find mine.
Stunned, I forgot about undressing him. The kiss was fierce. Hot. Mind-numbing. I grabbed his arms and hung on.
He lifted his head to growl, “You have thirty seconds, sweetheart. Then I’m taking over.”

Grimnirs (Runes #2.5)

by Ednah Walters 
Published December 2nd 2013 by Firetrail Publishing 
ISBN 0983429790 
(ISBN13: 9780983429791)

Straight out of the psych ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The guy she’s loved from a distance for years moves away without saying goodbye. So yes, she’s nursing a serious heartbreak. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on her mind when Echo storms into her life. 

The chemistry between them is mind-blowing.The connection defies logic. Even better, the souls leave her alone when he is around.

Too bad Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful,and cocky. He is also a soul reaper. A Grimnir.
The very beings she wants out of her life. Maybe normal is overrated because Cora wants it all. Answers. Love. A life.
