YA Sisterhood

Hey everyone! My name is Stacey, and I'm the blogger behind the Fantasy Book Addict. This is my first time participating, and I'm so excited I get to represent Dimitri Belikov from the international bestselling series, Vampire Academy, by Richelle Mead. Before I begin, I'd like to thank all the supporters behind #TeamDimitri, and the YA Sisterhood for hosting this fun tourney! Now, let's get started!

Tell us about Dimitri?
Well, he's a twenty-four-year-old dhampir with a sexy Russian accent. He's about six-six or six-seven with dark brown eyes and shoulder-length brown hair that's usually tied back in a ponytail. He's one of the best and most respected of all the dhampirs. When we first meet him, he has six molnija tattoos onthe back of his neck because he has killed 6 strigoi. Rose actually says it better than I can here:
“He's a total badass. He's also pretty good-looking. Okay-more than good-looking. He's hot-like, the kind of hot that makes you stop walking on the street and get hit by traffic." Frostbite

What makes him stand out amongst the other competitors?
Unlike many guys on this list, his looks aren't the best part of him. He's hot for sure, but he's not a total jerk. He's a sexy, good guy. I'm gonna lean on Rose again to explain: "Yet, it had been Dimitri’s gentleness and thoughtfulness mixed with that deadliness that made him so wonderful. The same hands that wielded stakes with such precision would carefully brush the hair out of my face. The eyes that could astutely spot any danger in the area would regard me wonderingly and worshipfully, like I was the most beautiful and amazing woman in the world.” Blood Promise

What truly makes Dimitri the best crush on this list?
When everyone else thought Rose was a lost cause, he believed in her. He trained her and he took up for her. He was always pushing her to be her best. His support helped elevate her into the rockstar dhampir she eventually became. No matter what happened to Rose, he never lost faith in her. Not to mention, he thought her most attractive trait was her inner strength. Dimitri: "No, it won't happen to you. You're too strong. You will fight it, just like you did this time" Rose: "I only did it because you were here, I can't do it by myself" Dimitri: "You can, you're strong--you're so, so strong. It's why I love you." Shadow Kiss

Still not convinced of his hotness? Maybe this will seal the deal. <Holy Hotness Alert>
"Releasing my wrists, he moved his hands up my arms, sliding slowly along my skin. Holding me in his dark, hungry gaze, he pulled me into him, pressing me right up to his body. One of his hands moved up the back of my neck, twining his fingers in my hair and tipping my face up to his. He brought his lips down, barely brushing them against mine. Swallowing, I asked again, "Do you think I'm pretty?" He regarded me with utter seriousness, like he always did. "I think you're beautiful." "Beautiful?" "You are so beautiful, it hurts me sometimes." His lips moved to mine, gentle at first, and then hard and hungry. His kiss consumed me. His hands on my arms slid down, down my hips, down to the edge of my dress. He gathered up the fabric in his hands and began pushing it up my legs. I melted into that touch, into his kiss and the way it burned against my mouth. His hands kept sliding up and up, until he'd pulled the dress over my head and tossed it on the floor. "You...you got rid of that dress fast," I pointed out between heavy breaths. "I thought you liked it." "I do like it," he said. His breathing was as heavy as mine. "I loved it." And then he took me to the bed." Vampire Academy



Don't tempt fate and disobey the Gods...


Hey everyone, I'm Kayleigh from K-Books and I am here with a task from the Gods... to advocate for the awesome Aiden St Delphi from Jennifer L Armentrout's phenomenal Covenant series!
Aiden is the perfect lead male character in the Covenant series. I'm going to convince you why you need to vote TEAMAIDEN! After all he is the world's best Pure Blood!!
Besides you wouldn't want to upset the Gods.... WOULD YOU?
*Please note there may be some spoilers from the Covenant series if you haven't read Daimon, Half-Blood and Pure please read on with caution. Any major spoilers will be highlighted before hand*


If you've read the Covenant series you won't need much persuading from me to vote for Aiden. He can do that all on his own. The one word to describe him and his personality is: PERFECT!

It's the truth he is just perfect! In every way!
- Aiden is one of the strongest characters you will ever read about. He is fiercely protective and always out to protect the ones he loves.
"I have to. I told you before I'd never let anything happen to you. I meant it."
Aiden will always do what is right even if it means sacrificing himself.
"I kissed her like I was never going to see her again, because in a way, I wasn’t. Not this way, and as much as that killed me, I knew the difference between what felt right.
            And what was actually right." 
- Aiden always sees the best in everyone.
"She was so incredibly strong and I couldn't fathom how she didn't know that."
- Aiden always fights for what he believes in. No matter how dangerous it might be. 

"If the Gods want a war they'll have one." ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 
- Aiden is super romantic and increidbly swoon worthy. He can easily make any girl's insides just melt! ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
“Ever since I’ve met you, I’ve wanted to break every rule. You’ll become the centerof someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth.”  ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Aiden is tall, dark and drop dead gorgeous. He has the most intense storm coloured eyes that turn to shades of silver when he feels strong emotions. Yes girls, it's okay to swoon!! He IS dreamy and drop dead gorgeous! Totally swoon worthy!! 


As a Pure Blood Aiden can control the element Fire. Yes, this boy is super HOT! In more ways than one. So watch out for Aiden, he may just burn you up ;) Aiden is a wicked kick-ass fighter who is super fast and super strong. He has dedicated his life to fighting Daimons and has the skills to excel at it. Yes not only is he fiercely protective he has all the skills to save your life in the case of a Daimon attack.
