Blog Tour: Abigail Haas - Dangerous Boys (*Shirtless Chad Michael Murray Klaxon*)

Today is my stop on Abigail Haas' blog tour for Dangerous Boys - a book I read and really enjoyed! I'm a big fan of Haas' books and adored last year's Dangerous Girls, so I recommend checking both of those books out if you're looking for entertaining mysteries to read.

For today's post Abigail is going to talk bout her top five bad ass brothers! What's not to like?


Damon & Stefan Salvatore – The Vampire Diaries

I never read the books, so this is all about the on-screen TV smolder, but Damon and Stefan take the prize for being recklessly dangerous while maintaining excellent hairstyling. They’ve role reversed ‘good bro’ and ‘bad bro’ so many times, peeling back the layers to reveal real strength and darkness every time. 

Lucas and Nathan Scott – One Tree Hill

If I can get a picture of a shirtless Chad Michael Murray on my blog then by hook or by crook I will!

Yes, I was a big OTH fan. No, I’m not ashamed. The show nailed crazy teen drama and emotional sincerity, and from the very first episode, the dynamic between half-brothers Lucas (single mom, illegitimate), and Nathan (rich, dysfunctional family) drove the action. The burgeoning sense of brotherhood grounded the often-ridiculous action, so that even when crazy nannies were kidnapping kids, and a dog ate a human heart set for transplant (true story, just watch), you still felt the emotion between the brothers.

Nick and Alan Ryves - The Demon’s Lexicon series by Sarah Rees Brennan

Demon-fighting, sword-toting brothers on the run. Rees Brennan brings a trademark wit and banter to every scene, but still grounds their dynamic in real sibling protectiveness and loyalty. 

Loki and Thor – Marvel world movies

The layers of resentment, admiration, and jealousy that run between Loki and Thor will be recognizable to any sibling. Except this pair also comes with the threat of world domination.

Sam and Dean Winchester – Supernatural

What is it with hot brothers fighting (and/or becoming) demons? Sam and Dean have been through a lot in nine years of the show, with the future of humanity seeming to hang in the balance every other week, but through it all, their loyalty remains strong. As does their hair game.


Well, there you have it. What do you think? Do you agree with the choices? I have to agree with the Salvatore brothers and Loki and Thor, for sure!
