Character Connection is a weekly meme hosted by Jen @ The Introverted Reader.
This is our chance to tell the world about a character that we love in whichever way we want.
The Book: Perfect Chemistry
The Author: Simone Elkeles
The character: The one and only Alejandro Fuentes
This post is a Fuentes love fest! Come on, you can't say you weren't expecting it.
What's in a name? A character by any other name would make my heart race, make me stay up all night, make my head spin with his addictive words, make me forget that I am 27, married and with the perfect life.
Alex is one badass Mexicano. Hot blooded, bodily scarred, hiding an inner softness.
He oozes supreme confidence and knows he is one serious heart-throb.
Isa likens him to Danny Zuko in Grease. Hell, me and my sister grew up believing in "Summer Lovin". How could I not be obsessed with this contemporary bad boy?
Alex's body is all chiseled triceps and biceps and every other "ceps" [according to Brittany and see says this when she has a hangover so it must be true].
He punctuates his English with Spanish so that it rolls off the tongue and is enough to make me drool all over the keyboard. I just want to say his dialogue out aloud. Hear it whispered in my ear and become molten lava. Hot and uncontrollable!
Fuentes rides a motorcycle. Cue girls screaming! Seriously, is there any thing more atractivo? La pasión que inspira?
But above all, it is the need to save such a magnífico, apasionado, inteligente and generoso hombre from a life that is shaped by gang violence and self-destruction that makes him my true literary love. Who wouldn't want to be that girl?
Any one got any other reasons to be obsessed with one Alex Fuentes?
Let's hear them fellow Fan Girls or Guys!
