We have so many book boyfriends…..in fact I’m pretty sure you’ll see a blog post sometime in the future highlighting all of them! Though it was really hard to pick just one, for today’s post, we’ve settled on one of our very favorites from 2014. We present to you, Finn Van Brunt from The Collectors’ Society by Heather Lyons.

The Top 6 Reasons Finn is our Book Boyfriend
After searching for these quotes, I desperately want to read this book again. I’ve never highlighted so many passages in a book. I love it SO MUCH!
1. Finn is sweet! He’s kind, he’s caring, he wonderful.
“Finn Van Brunt has manners. He’s kind to children. I hate the tingling that spreads in the pit of my belly.”
2. He fiercely loves Alice!
“Finn says my name softly, like it’s a prayer or a plea.”
3. Finn protects Alice, but not in a smothering, doesn’t-think-she-can-take-care-of-herself, kind of way.
” ‘The nice thing about partners,’ he says just as softly, ‘is that two are always stronger than one.’ “
4. He makes us think impure thoughts about spending time in a closet. (BFF K fans herself!)
“Time blurs together until it’s meaningless, until the closet and clothes disappear around us. Everything in this moment is touch and sensation, and I’m drunk on it.”
5. Finn has a sarcastic, silly, teasing side to his personality.
” ‘Oh, I’m familiar with weapons, Finn.’ ‘Ladies and gentlemen,’ he sweeps a hand out, ‘may I present Alice, the master of understatement.’ “
6. He is dreamy.
“He’s beautiful. Handsome is probably a more dignified term, but the golden-brown hair, light blue-gray eyes, and tanned skin really do come across as more beautiful than anything else.”
A visit to Heather Lyon’s Pinterest Board for The Collectors’ Society will reveal her inspiration photo for Finn.
I like to call this pic the “Finnspiration”. (BFF K fans herself again!)
