QUESTION OF THE WEEK: #27 – Trading Places…

Boys in our Books Friday Question of the Week!

Each week we’ll ask a question about your reading experience. Our review team will give our answers and we encourage you to join in and comment with your answers as well!  Let’s talk about BOOKS! :)


If you could BE any character in your m/m books, who would it be?

Ami –

I will say that I’d want to be CHRISTINE PUTNAM (from Jordan L. Hawk’s Whyborne and Griffin series). I kick ass, I get to travel to exotic places and look for bones, and hey, in the latest book, I seem to get the love of a good man too!

Rachel –

Keir Warrick. Being a wealthy entrepreneur who owns his own company, has close ties with his loving family and one heck of a kinky boyfriend … yeah, if I HAD to choose a gay male character to be, I am going with Keir. 

Jenni –

*looks around with shifty eyes*
I sorta love the idea of remaking myself into a gay man. I think I’d like be Toreth from Mind Fuck (The Administration series). He’s an alpha stud who makes things happen. With guns. In bed.
*clears throat*

Sara –

Not sure I would want to be part of the actual action with my favorite couples but there is someone I envy quite a bit. *clears throat* I would love be Rolex from the Market Garden series: Quid Pro Quo,Take It Off and Payoff. Not sure I need an actual explanation as to why I would want to be him, if you have read the books. Quid Pro Quo was my first official m/m read and just the thought of having Tristan and Jared at my disposal with the drop of a bill… unf. 

Sheri –

Jacob from PsyCops. Yeahhh, I would take over his body in a heartbeat. I would love to be close to Vic, but there is NO WAY I would want to walk a day in his shoes.
So, I would rock the hell out of playing his sexy alpha sixth-sense stud.
*rubs hands together*
Let the fun begin!

Sue –

I’m going for Cole from Strawberries for Dessert. He’s strong, WISE and brutally honest while he chooses his words very carefully. His word is gospel. He also has integrity and courage. When the world had failed him, he still chose to live; he still moved forward despite being terrified. And he shared his wealth with the people he loved, but most importantly he was heartwarmingly generous with his heart.

Go, Team Cole! 

Susan –

I’m gonna cheat and pick 2. I’d want to be Lisa from the PsyCop series because 1)I’d get to be Vic’s best friend (which I already am in my head! :) ) and 2)I’d have the si/no power…which kicks ass! My 2nd choice would be Ty Grady from the Cut & Run series because, duh, ZANE!!!!!!!

Tracy –

I can’t say I really picture myself taking over any characters, but if I had to pick one, I’ll say Johnnie from Dance in the Dark, since it would mean I would have a sweet collection of suits to wear, a great memory for poetry, and a hot and infuriating bodyguard. 

Xing –

Scarlet from The Pedlar and the Bandit King. There’s nothing like a high fantasy adventure, while falling in love, that gets my M/M heart pumping even more. I also love characters that believe themselves to be your average human being, but end up being more significant in the grand scheme of things.April 25, 2014

    Riley from Bone Rider- because I want a sentient armor! Yes, I’m weird. :|
    Tuning nerdism down…I would like to be Daniel da Silva from KJ Charles’ Think of England simply because being focus of undivided Archie’s attention is mind-blowing. He’s awesome guy to be loved by. ;)

    Hm. . . well first one that comes to mind is Thomas from Rough Canvas since I’m an artist, love to paint/draw, and would dearly love to be as talented as him at painting male erotica AND to have Marcus to represent my work and um. . . take care of me. Yum.

      Yes! Thomas came to mind for me too – for exactly those reasons. ;)

    Boyd Beaulieu from ICoS. 100%, hands down, no question. No matter what he’s gone through, I’d give my eye too, to have hot monkey sex with Hsin. Nothing could be better than that.

      Kristie, you marvellous woman – I wanted to be Boyd too! (for the same reason) And um, Gen Carhart (for the same reason). Yesssss.

      I had that same thought. . . ONLY just to have Hsin. But being Boyd. . . hm.

      Haha, I would chose Hsin just to be with Boyd. I totally love him being emo and arduous and all. And to have his androgynous fragile eager body all for myself. Yes, I would love that. :)
