From the Boy Closet

Yep, it's time to meet another guy From the Boy Closet.

So,today's boy is one that, in all honesty, totally makes me want to pick the author's brain and ask all my sordid questions about. He's a guy who is such a mess, who is, honestly, a jerk a lot of times, yet he's also a guy who has this mushy inside that makes you melty, and who, in the end, is a pretty solid guy.

The hottie? Rusty from Jessi Kirby's In Honor.

Rusty has easily skyrocketed into my Top Ten Favorite Boys. He's that guy who you want to punch in the face while also wanting to hug him close. His antics will crack you up, and some of them most definitely test the limits. But he also has these moments of not hiding behind his rough exterior that just... break you a little. He was a mess before his best friend died, and even when he's at his worst, it's so easy to see how much more of a mess he is now. Rusty isn't just that guy you want to fix, though... he's that guy that just seems to have so many layers, so much going on underneath that you want to know him, and know what he really thinks about things.

And okay, so he spends a particularly vivid and long scene in the book in his boxers. And he was that guy that spent quite a bit of his time in the backseat of the car with a girl. And he most definitely does not hold back on what he wants to say.

But he just... is so broken that I was a goner from the first time we meet him on the pages.

Also, I feel like I need to find a picture of the back of the book cover, because then you get Rusty. Or at least his lower half. And it's a good half... Ahem.

So that's this week's droolworthy boy, and trust me, you do not want to miss meeting him.
