Make your dream guy using characteristics, personalities, looks, and anything else you can think of from your favorite book boyfriends. 
This is a tough one for me. I'm kind of stuck on Sebastian right now (in Darkness Becomes Her). I also have a lot of fictional boys that I love. So, here goes. He would have Will (Infernal Devices)'s looks. Simon (Mortal Instruments)'s nerdiness. George (Lioness quartet)'s sense of humor. Oliver (Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight)'s accent. Four (Divergent)'s strength. Jem (Infernal Devices)'s ability to play the violin. Albert (War Horse)'s love of horses. Neville's bravery. And Harry's loyalty.

I started reading Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton around ten last night after I finished my first book. I'm about 13% through it so far and absolutely hooked.

About 27%. It's time for me to go out and take the dog for a walk. If I could walk down the street reading the book, I would. I got so caught up in it that I forgot where I was until I pulled myself away.

Is there anything better than tea and a great book?  

Finished my second book of the readathon! I'm going to take a little time to cool down because right now I'm dying for the sequel and I don't have the sequel. Then I'll go check out my stack for my next choice.

I took a few hours off to relax, write a little bit, walk the dog, and go to the grocery store. After I was surprised to find that both of my other books for the readathon were first books in a series, I decided to find a book that is stand-alone for my third choice. Of the six books in my stack, three of them are the first in the series and the fourth is the second book in a series. Technically the fifth is the final book in a series. So my choice is Slam by Nick Hornby.

Let me first start out by saying that I LOVE Darkness Becomes Her. Wait til you get to the second book. Holy cow does a lot happen!

As for your dream guy, he sounds amazing! I adore Sebastian and Oliver's accent is super hot. ;)
