Friday's Fictional Boyfriend: Noah Shaw

For those of you who are not familiar with Noah Shaw, he is from the Mara Dyer series.  The Evolution of Mara Dyer, the second book in the series, will be released this Tuesday October 23rd.  I am BEYOND excited and can't wait to get my hands on this book.  I have already pre-ordered my copy and feel like a kid at Christmas counting down the days until it magically appears on my Nook.

Noah is an English boy, ahhhh swoons over the accent.  He is also brilliant, well educated, witty, arrogant, and a bit of a bad boy.  He is from a very wealthy family, but his appearance is usually disheveled.  His dark hair and clothes look like he just rolled out of bed and he has a perpetual 5 o'clock shadow, but for him the look is perfection.  He doesn't have the best reputation when it comes to the ladies, but that all changes when he meets Mara.  These two are destined to be together and for once in his life he treats a girl the way she should be treated.   

Here are a couple of swoon worthy quotes from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer:

Mara, I have never felt about anyone the way I feel about you. And when you're ready for me to show you," he said, brushing my hair to the side, "I'm going to kiss you." His thumb grazed my ear and his hand curved around my neck. He leaned me backward and my eyes fluttered closed. I breathed in the scent of him as he leaned in and kissed the hollow under my ear. My pulse raced under his lips.
"And I won't settle for anything less.”

You want me as much as I want you. And all I want is you."
My tongue warred with my mind. "Today," I whispered.
Noah stood slowly, his body skimming mine as he rose. "Today. Tonight. Tomorrow. Forever."

The icing on top of the cake...Noah is a reader.  His room is filled with bookshelves containing countless books, all of which he has read.  Some of the books are a bit inappropriate, but what would you expect from a high school boy.  The image at the top of this post is a copy of the book plate Michelle Hodkin is giving out at her upcoming book signings.  It is a quote from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, which makes reference to Noah's book collection.


  1. Oooh nice quotes! I've heard so many good things about Mr. Noah Shaw :-)

    I'll have to start this series.

    1. You will not be disappointed. I LOVED The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.
