It was difficult picking only ten, but here they are! In no particular order...
Male Characters that I am Thankful for!

Cole Holland 
White Rabbit Chronicles
by Gena Showalter

The moment our eyes met, the moisture in my mouth dried up and I lost all focus of my surroundings. He was all that I could see, all that I wanted to see. And in the span of a single second we were no longer across the hall from each other...
---Ali about Cole - Alice in Zombieland

"Like I said, you're mine. And, Ali, I'd love to be called your anything, especially your toy. I reeeally want you to play with me."
---Cole Holland to Ali -Through The Zombie Glass

The Dark Elements Series
Jennifer L. Armentrout


...He was attractive. Very attractive. Mind-bendingly beautiful, actually, but the sardonic twist to his
 full lips chilled his beauty. The black T-shirt stretched across his chest and flat stomach. A huge tattoo of a snake curled  around his forearm, the tail disappearing under his sleeve and the diamond-shaped head rested on top of his hand. He looked my age. Total crush material-if it wasn't for the fact that he had no soul. 
---Layla about Roth - White Hot Kiss

"For the love of all unholy things, why must you be so difficult? I apologized for calling you a prude. I'll even apologize for yesterday. I scared you. I threw your cell in a toilet. See, I was raised in Hell. You could say I'm socially awkward."
---Roth - White Hot Kiss

A Wicked Saga
Jennifer L. Armentrout

Tink is a rare brownie from the Otherworld. Ivy finds him injured at a cemetery. She decides to keep
him and brings him home with her. He is about the size of a Barbie doll but this little guy is the most dramatic and hilarious character I have so far in my readings!

"Where have you been? You didn't come home. I thought you were dead, and no one knows about me, and I would just be left here. Forgotten. I'd starve Ivy. STARVE"

"Doesn't look like you were starving. Looks like you were pretending to be a chipmunk and storing food for the winter by eating all of it."

"I had to eat to get through the stress of being abandoned!" he shouted, raising a hand and shaking a fist the size of a thumbnail at me.
---Tink and Ivy - Wicked

Covenant Series
Jennifer L. Armentrout

It felt like someone had trapped me face down on the bed. I thought I was having one of those dream paralysis things I'd read about once, but then I realized what pinned me to the bed was an arm.
And that arm belonged to Seth.
He hadn't left, and apparently, Seth was a cuddler.
---Alexandria - Pure ( Second Covenant Novel)

Jennifer L. Armentrout

Part of my brain couldn't fathom what he was doing in my apartment - in my bedroom, sitting on my bed, giving me a half grin that revealed one deep dimple.
Was I dreaming?
He tilted  his head to the side, and several dark, russet colored curls fell across his forhead. "You do this a lot? This stare at me and not speak king of thing?"
Yeah, not dreaming.
---Ivy - Wicked

"You are also sitting on me, and sweetness, fi you slide about an inch or so doen, things are going to get real awkward." ... "or fun," he added, and his lips did that slow curl again.
---Ren - Wicked

Court of Throne and Roses
Sarah J. Mass

"There you are. I've been looking for you," said a deep, sensual male voice I'd never heard. But I kept my eyes on the three fairis, bracing myself for flight as the male behind me stepped to my side and slipped a casual arm around my shoulders.
The three lesser fairies paled, their dark eyes wide.
"Thank you for finding her for me," my savior said to them, smooth and polished...
I stepped out of the shelter of my savior's arm and turned to thank him. Standing before me was the most beautiful man I'd ever seen. 
---Feyre meets Rhysand - A Court of Thorns and Roses

Unchecked Series
Sybil Bartel

"Cheers. Lots of eye candy here" I said miserably.
Talon took a swig without taking his eye off me. "Nothing prettier than what's in front of me." ...
"Why do you do that?" I took another long sip feeling the burn.
Talon moved closer. "Because it's the truth and when you look sad, all I wanna do is make you smile."
---Layna and Talon - Impossible Promise

Karen Marie Moning
You’ll never be just anything. A tsunami can never be ‘just’ a wave.” 
“Get off my chin.”
“I like that about you. Waves are banal. Tsunamis reshape the Earth. Under the right circumstances, even entire civilizations.” 
I blink. 
“You’re going to be one hell of a woman one day, Dani.” 
---Ryodan and Dani - Iced

“Dude. Post-apocalyptic world. Who does job applications anymore?”
“I do.”
I squint at it, then him. “What are you paying me?” I angle.
“Dude. Post-apocalyptic world. Who does money anymore.”
I snicker. First sign of any sense of humor he’s shown. Then I remember where I am and why. I wad it up and throw it at him. It bounces off his chest.”
---Dani and Ryodan - Iced

V'Lane / Cruce
Fever Series 
Karen Marie Moning

“He is so beautiful that he makes a part of my soul weep. I don't understand those tears. They aren't like the ones I cry for Alina. They aren't made of water and salt. I think they're made of blood.”
---Mac about V'Lane - Bloodfever

"I want to be...what is your word? Friends.
“Psychotic rapists don't have friends."
"I was unaware you were a psychotic rapist or I would not have offered."
---Mac and V'Lane”

The Brothers from Black Dagger Brotherhood
J.R Ward

"Perfect date material, she thought. A vampire with the social equivalent of road rage.
---Beth about Wrath

"Has anyone told you how beautiful you are?" she said
He chuckled "Warriors are not beautiful"
"You are, to me. You are beautiful"
---Beth and Wrath - Dark Lover

"You don't know this yet, but you are mine."
---Wrath - Dark Lover

"I like to think of myself as an outcome engineer."

"I was dead till you found me, though a breathed. I was sightless, though I could see. And then you came...and I was awakened."
---Zadist - Lover Awakened
