Monday Smutty Goodness: Book Boyfriend Edition

Hellooo Monday! I look forward to Monday's now because we get to revisit these wonderful male characters that we love so much. Yes there is more to them than smexy scenes, but it's so much fun focusing on that part isn't it? He he he!

This week's book boyfriend is loved by so many and I am sure that he is on your book boyfriend list as well. His story was a hard one to read. I weeped so many times while reading it. But he overcame so much to become the character that we know and love!

Book Boyfriend # 6
Acheron Parthenopaeus aka Ash


Scene Setup: Ash and Tory are finally ready to take their relationship to the next level. Sotera needs a little help from something however. ;)

Ash leaned his head back as pleasure assaulted him. He watched through hooded eyes while she studied his cock. Opening her lips, she stared to take the tip into her mouth then pulled back and frowned. She titlted her head and open her lips as if trying to think of the best way to taste him.

She moved toward his cock again, then pulled back...again.

"You're killing me, Soteria."

"I'm sorry." She scurried away from him, and put her glasses back on before she opened the drawer and pulled out a book.

Ash scowled while she thumbed through the pages to a section that had a small makeshift bookmark and notes in the margin. "What are you doing?"

She ran her finger down the notes. "I just want to make sure that I do this right."

Leaning up on one elbow, he nipped her shoulder then gaped at the graphic drawings of a woman going down on man. He pulled the book out of her hands and frowned at the title. "How to Tickle His Pickle?"

She shrugged adorably, "You know I don't know what I'm doing. I wanted to make sure that I pleased you, too."

Those word stuck a chord so deep inside him that for a solid minute he couldn't breathe past the swell of emotion he felt for her. "There's nothing you could do that wouldn't please me." He kissed her gently as he dropped the book to the floor. "You don't need that, Tory." He took her glasses off and put the away before he returned to her lips." All you have to do is touch me and I promise you I'm in ecstasy."


She dropped her panties to the floor before she pulled a condom from the nightstand. "So how do we do this?"

As he unwrapped it and put it on, a thousand different positions played through his mind of how he'd like to take her. And just the thought of being inside her was enough to make him whimper.

But sex always hurt the first time and he was big enough to make it excruciating for her. That was the last thing he wanted.

"First, we have to get your body ready for me."

"I'm ready."

He laughed at her eagerness. His body burning, he sank his thumb inside her. She bit her lip and jerked in response. "You are wet." He dipped his head so that he could tongue her and make her even more slick.

Tory spread her legs wider, wanting to feel as much of him as was possible. "You're killing me Acheron."

"Patience, love, patience." He slid one long finger deep inside her. She shivered in response as his tongue swirled and teased. That finger was followed by another. He slid his chin against her. "Come for me, Soteria, I want to taste you."

When he returned to her, she had no choice except to obey. Her orgasm split through her until she was sure she'd die from it. Wave after wave cascaded over her and still he didn't enter her.


Ash trailed his hand down her back until he touched himself so that he could guide his shaft back inside her. They gasped in unison as she sank herself down on him.

As she did so, her thoughts whispered through her head. Am I doing this right? I hope he's not disappointed. Why can't I do this with my glasses on so I can see him better? Please don't be disappointed Ash.

Those doubts tore through him. Most of all the sincerity of them, the concern for him brought tears to his eyes. "You're wonderful, Tory. Perfect."

She paused to squint at him. "Really?"

"Yes," he breathed, reaching down so that he could stroke her while she rode him slow and easy. His throat tight, her gentleness succeeded in breaking him where the beatings never had.

One small tear slid from the corner of his right eye. Slamming them shut, he surrendered himself to her. Right now, this moment, she owned him in a way no one ever had before.

No she didn't own him.

He gave himself to her and for the first time, he understood the difference. He understood what it meant to make love. To share his body with someone not out of obligation or fear, but because it made them closer.

In this one heartbeat, he was hers and she was his.

*tearing up* OMG! Was that last part not one of the MOST beautiful things you ever read?! Sherrilyn Kenyon you are a poet! This book touched my heart in so many different ways. Acheron you are a special man and you are so loved by your readers.



  1. *wipes a tear away* I just love Acheron. His book was so heart wrenchingly good. SK knows how to write heroes!

  2. I love this entire scene, from the moment Ash took stage in the bar to sing (those who read the series know how HUGE that was), to when Tory went to the "shop" to get the "items" to this - their first time. *Sigh* and who am I kidding, I love all the parts leading up to and after this. I just love Ash! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ash seems to soften a little more each book. If he's not careful, he's going to turn into a big cuddly stuffed teddy bear. :) I want to pull him to my bosom and caress his hair until he falls asleep.

  4. The first part of this book I don't think I will ever be able to read again. Saying it was heartbreaking doesn't even cover it. Even though Tori isn't maybe favorite female of the series I was so happy that Acheron finally got a mate he deserved.

  5. I love Ash! Must say that reading the first half of Acheron had me in tears most of the time. So glad he found happiness with Tory.

  6. Ash - I heart him SO much!!!

  7. I need to read these books. I think I'm the only person on the planet who hasn't lol.

  8. In this one heartbeat, he was hers and she was his.

    Yes Ashy, i am yours, and you're forever mine. So says ME! =D

    Ohhhh i have much crazy love for Acheron, his book KILLED me, ive never cried so much during a book, i dont think i'll ever read part one again.

    My Number One Book Boyfriend ❤❥❤

  9. I love Ash. His book ripped my heart out but I adore him.

  10. I LOVE Ash! Great excerpt!

  11. Oh my Ash! Bells - your totally rock for this one! Ash is my ultimate book boy!

  12. Ash's story was the best one. The first half of the book KILLED me. I cried and cried. *sniff* I've re read it abt 50 times. lol

  13. Acheron is on clearance at Borders. Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust

  14. Ash's book was the first one I ever read in the series. It was so hard to read the first half and I often found myself screaming "RUN ASH!" when Ryssa would show up. I know she was trying to help but cheese and crackers. I liked Tory...but one of my fave parts was Sprite...and Simi. LOL. Gah who am I kidding I read the 2nd half of this often.
