The Historical Hotties tournament is catching fire! All month long we’ve been betting on the swooniest YA boys from way-back-when, and even some from the distant future, in anticipation of BELLADONNA‘s publication TOMORROW!
Each contestant has been carefully chosen by the wonderful PLL Trendsetters and the PLL story architects. Join us each week to learn why each YA boy made the cut, and let us know in the comments if you agree or disagree.
Falco: Falco is the dangerous, attractive guy that will come and sweep you right off your feet with sweet nothings that might actually be more than nothing. He is a danger magnet and extremely sketchy, but he’s so gorgeous and fiercely wants to protect Cass, even it means protecting her from himself. (PLL Trendsetter Corinne)
Lorenzo: Lorenzo is artsy, smart, polite, and gorgeous. He has character development throughout the novel, and is one love interest who I really felt like I “knew” by the end of the book. (PLL Trendsetter Maddie)
Will: Will is a little rascal. He’s always off getting into trouble and being heroic, even when it puts him in danger. He cares about everyone else more than he cares about himself, though he isn’t always the best at expressing it. Underneath his tough exterior, he is incredibly soft and squishy inside. Plus, he has black hair and blue eyes which is a completely gorgeous combination. (PLL Trendsetter Marielle)
Marco: I have not met many people who’ve read this book but Marco is MARVALOUS. All magic and desire, Marco is one of my favorite book guys. I would love for someone to invent special circus tents just for me, and he is, of course, another dark haired light eyed combination. (PLL Trendsetter Corinne)
Park: This boy is like every nerd girl’s dream boy. He’s a bit insecure, incredibly inquisitive, and so sweet that he and Eleanor will give you cavities. He isn’t without his flaws, but he’s one of the best boy characters I’ve ever read. (PLL Trendsetter Julianne)
Rudy: Rudy and Liesel are kids in WWII when the book takes place, but Rudy’s lemon colored hair, affinity for Jesse Owens (despite being in Nazi Germany), and how hard he loves Liesel, so much that he doesn’t try to kiss her because he thinks she doesn’t want him to, breaks your heart. Into little pieces. And lots of them. (PLL Trendsetter Emily)
Jamie: Peter Pan in a kilt: Jamie will fly your plane and let you stay at his castle in Scotland. Did we mention that he’s also a Lord? Kiss him, quick!
Charlie: Now Charlie isn’t from Victorian London, but he is from the 90′s and that is an era all it’s own. Charlie is everything innocent and trusting about love and that is why I find him so swoonworthy. He’s just all awkward and wonderful and there is no way for him not to take a hold on your heart.
