YA Authors Reveal Their Dream Book Boyfriend

We all have our dream book boyfriend, or boyfriends, as some may feel it necessary to have more than one, especially if it comes to different time periods or separate book series’.  But, at least you have that in common with some young adult authors.  They, too, have their dream book boyfriend!  Of course, this may cause a feud between you and your favorite author if you end up sharing the same book boyfriend.

Find out below if you have something in common with one of these authors!

Cameron “Cam” Hamilton from “Wait For You”

Claimed by Sarah J. Maas, “Throne of Glass” series

“Do I really need to explain why?! Dude is gorgeous, loves to bake, and is all-around a pretty stellar, considerate human being (like, Cam is literally the greatest, most caring/fun/selfless boyfriend ever). Plus, he frequently drives shirtless in his pickup truck (and wearing a backwards baseball cap, which is pretty much my kryptonite). I’m a massive fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s romance novels, but Cam really steals the cake (or should I say cookies?) as my ultimate book boyfriend.”

Dallas Winston from “The Outsiders”


Claimed by Kami Garcia, “Beautiful Creatures” series

“Tough, loyal, and misunderstood — Dallas Winston is the ultimate bad boy with a heart of tarnished gold. It doesn’t hurt that hottie Matt Dillon played Dallas in the film adaptation, back in the actor’s teen heartthrob days. I’m not saying I had his Tiger Beat magazine centerfold on my wall or anything….unless there’s a polygraph test involved.”

Nikolai Lantsov from the “Grisha Trilogy”

Claimed by Marie Lu, “Legend” series

“Witty + intelligent + funny + royalty + enjoys a good meteor shower = all this girl needs.”

Legolas from “The Lord of the Rings”


Claimed by Victoria Aveyard, “Red Queen”

“This is obviously very biased by his portrayal in the films (11 year-old me was smitten), but who wouldn’t want an elf boyfriend? Sick archery skills, great with animals, perfect hair, well-read, and they throw awesome parties. Plus he’s a prince, so check that one off too.”

Jamie Fraser from the “Outlander” series


Claimed by Alexandra Bracken, “The Darkest Minds” series

“When I first read ’Outlander’ a few years ago, I was shocked to find that Jamie was the complete package: incredibly smart, incredibly witty, strong but emotionally vulnerable, passionate to a fault–and, well, the Scottish accent doesn’t hurt! I actually stopped reading at several points to swoon over something he said… he’s really that good.”
