My Book Boyfriend (#5) Julian Laurence from Overseas

It’s been a tough month, so I’m going to cheer myself up with a fun little Book Boyfriend blurb. Pretty boys do have a way of perking me right up! That’s why I love reading romance novels during my blue spells. It’s hard to stay bummed when I’m picturing my celebrity crush du jour in the throws of passion.

For my fifth installment of the My Book Boyfriend meme, I bring you Julian Laurence from Overseas.

Description:  Julian is an extremely sexy, yet oddly old-fashioned British billionaire. With his tall, lean physique, broad shoulders, dark golden hair and soulful eyes, he brings women to their knees with just a twitch of a smile. Although he’s richer than Donald Trump, he has no interest in flashy cars or private jets. His passions are classical music, his grand piano, leather-bound books, and of course, his lady love Kate Wilson.

When Julian first entered the scene, I immediately thought of (*sigh*) the extremely hot, aristocratic Jude Law. Isn’t he a perfect fit?

Here are some quotes to send your hearts a flutter:

“Darling, when I tell you I love you, it means this: That I am your servant. That these two hands” – he held them up before me and then cupped my face – “labor for you alone. That you have a demand on me, an eternal one, which has everything to do with the incalculable favor, the immeasurable honor, you granted me last night, in taking me into your heart and your bed.”

“Sweetheart, I love you. Of course I do. I love every priceless inch of you. I love you idolatrously, for a thousand reasons, and I shall never stop. Hush,” he said, laying his finger on my lips again, “you don’t need to say anything. I’m a patient man. Just be easy. Know that it’s there, that you needn’t doubt me on this, at least.”

“Well, as they say,” he said, nibbling at my earlobe, slipping down to kiss the vale behind it, “faint heart never won fair lady.”

I lifted my hand to the back of his head. “I’m going…to find out.”

“Yes, I expect you shall. What fragrant skin you have, darling; how convenient that the woman one loves should turn out to be so perfectly…” He paused to kiss the curve of my jaw.

Oh swoon! Time for a Jude Law fix. I think I’m going to bump “The Holiday” up to the top of my Netflix queue.

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme created by Missie over at the Unread Reader that allows giggly book bloggers such as myself to match their literary crushes with a hot celebrities.

  1. “That these two hands” – he held them up before me and then cupped my face – “labor for you alone.”

    OMG! That has to be the sweetest thing I’ve ever read! I want to read more now.

    British billionaires are so darn irresistible! I wish I had one of my own. LOL

  2. Love it! How fun 🙂 Jude Law is adorable, too! I wanted to love Dexter Mayhew from ‘One Day’ like a boyfriend crush, but he was such a jerk until the very end. Sigh. How about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Mikael Blomkvist … Daniel Craig? Now there’s someone to get dreamy about. Sorry you’ve had a rough month. Am loving DD, UF!!

    xx, Lauren

    1. Thanks Lauren! I haven’t seen either of those movies, but now I think I need to! I love, love, love good lookin’ men! Right now I’ve got it bad for Ryan Gosling. He won me over in Drive. Glad to hear you’re liking DD, UF! It really gave me some new perspectives about life – especially the power of positivity.

  3. Happy to find someone who is as in love with Julian as I am. I’m a little late, the last post here was four years ago. Now that more time has passed, I’m thinking Jude is a bit too old for the role, I’ve been picturing Dan Stevens.

    and here is my kate:

    I would absolutely love it if this book would become a movie.
