Wow am I a sucker for a misunderstood bad boy with a heart of gold. Literally walked out of the theater after watching Thor 2 and couldn’t recall anything about the movie that was not Loki-related. And while I’m absolutely not ok with the male lead being cruel or abusive, I’m definitely all about mystery, troubled pasts, and redemption.
Christian Kane from The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler (available as a free read until May 29th!) may not be the stereotypical bad boy, but he is an insolent, arrogant playboy with a past (ok yeah, he’s so a bad boy). He also happens to be completely charming and totally won me over. It got me thinking about all of the YA bad boys I’ve found my self loving. Just for you, I’ve rounded up all my faves so you can admire them and fall in love with them, too (you’re welcome)!
