Book Boyfriend Love Letters: Serenade, by DaVinciKittie

by davincikittieFebruary 8, 2012


This is for you, Bones, my very first book boyfriend…

I have been searching for your touch, unlike any touch I’ve ever known. Immobilized by the thought of you, paralyzed by the sight of you, hypnotized by the words you say… not true but I believe ’em anyway. Your whisper, so clear, the world disappears. You’re picture perfect, completely worth it.

You’ve got my back against the wall. You are relentless, I am defenseless. I shiver when I hear your name. You build me up, you knock me down… provoke a smile and make me frown. You are the king of runaround; you know it’s true. You chew me up and spit me out, enjoy the taste I leave in your mouth. Remember how my body tastes? Feel your heart begin to race. Take me by the tongue and I’ll know you. Kiss me til you’re drunk and I’ll show you. You want to steer, but I’m shifting gears; I’ll take it from here. I won’t be satisfied ’till I’m under your skin. I’m not falling in love ’til I get a little more from you, baby. This time I really need to do things right.

I never knew perfection til I heard you speak, and now it kills me just to hear you say the simple things. Now waking up is hard to do, sleeping’s impossible too, and everything’s reminding me of you. What can I do? It’s not right, not okay. Say the words that you’re saying – maybe we’re better off this way. It’s better that we break. I need to move on and I need you to try, ’cause we’re out of goodbyes.


PS – I never realized how much you look like Adam Levine. Weird.
PSS – Damn, I can’t believe I just broke up with you! It’s okay though, plenty of other book hero hotties to chase after… right?  Yeah, okay… it’s gonna be okay… *sobs*

If you didn’t “get” my letter, it is composed 100% from Maroon 5 lyrics (except the “Dear Bones” and the PS & PSS parts), sung by dreamy lead singer Adam Levine.  Sexy, sexy, make-you-melt voice, badass cocky attitude, and a smile that could charm a garden gnome.   Mmmmmm MMM!  You’re welcome.  *grin*

Here are the songs I, er, borrowed lyrics from…

  • How
  • Shiver
  • Get Back In My Life
  • Moves Like Jagger
  • Better That We Break
  • Out of Goodbyes


Does Bones… or Adam Levine… make YOU shiver?


What's your reaction?
Love it, have it!
Sounds fun
Thinkin' 'bout it
Bleh, no.

    Oh Yeah…I love me some bones and Adam. I’m on the latest book in the The Night Huntress series. I’m going to be sad when there’s none left. I love that series and all the characters. I’m glad you dumped Bones…I’ll be glad to take him over…lol 😉

      Hah! Glad you liked it! Tell you what, you get Bones and I get Adam. Deal? *grin* I’m glad you “got” the letter idea. For people who aren’t M5 fans it might be a little obscure.

        I love Maroon 5 so I got it and yes it’s a deal..I’d take Bones 😉 I’m glad to hear that there will be more books…this is one series that I’ll probably never tire of. I’m definitely looking forward to Vlad’s book.

    Well you are brave, DVK!

    I could never break up with Bones. He’s my kind of guy… in dreams or realilty I don’t care. I just want me some Bones and I could never ever ever get enough of him!

    He can say whatever with his English accent and I’ll say yes. He can do whatever he wants with his lovely tongue and I’ll take whatever he gives.

    Umm not sure how I feel about you comparing him to Adam Levine. For all the Adam Levine’s fans, no offense but I do not picture Bones as Maroon 5’s singer at all! In my mind, he’s just so much hotter than that!

    If I could order myself a male such as Bones, I would do it in a heartbeat. No hesitation whatsoever.

    I love your love letter to Bones, DVK.

    I love to read your comments because you really crack me up. I can relate because we have the same warped mind (same thinking and all) LOL 🙂

      Thanks Hai-Yen! <3

      I didn’t actually intend to break up with him… the lyrics just sort of arranged themselves that way when I was working on this! That’s why the “sob* at the bottom. hehe

      I do love Maroon 5 and Adam Levine, but I agree he’s not QUITE Bones. But his lyrics are oh so perfect! When I read through them, I thought “Bones could totally be saying that, in his sexy english accent”. I originally planned to write to Barrons, but he’s too angry! LOL

      Thank you so much for your comment!! <3

        I have to admit I don’t know Maroon 5 work that well, but I find you are brilliant, DVK, for putting all the lyrics together. They fit so perfectly for a love letter.

        I LOVE TO READ but there are many series I have yet to discover. Who is Barrons? Please forgive me if I do not know of this hottie as I am certain he is. Otherwise you wouldn’t be mentioning him, right?

        I’m glad I discovered Grave Tells because I find it so interesting and helpful. There are many titles I’ll be adding to my TBR list.

        Thank God for this site and of course for you, DVK! I also love to read The Captain’s comments as the both of you make me laugh out loud!

    Oh my! Book boyfriends are heartbreakers at times especially guys like Bones. I guess a good-bye letter would be carthargic.

    Hate the end of a book or a series.

      Luckily Cat & Bones won’t be ending for a while (9 books total I think, and she released #6 last year) and now we have Vlad & Leila to look forward to!! *confetti*

    Hai-Yen here’s the link to our review of the first book in the Fever series, starring Barrons… yummy, sexy, asshole, alpha, impossible-to-kill know-it-all dreamboat Barrons. *grin*

    This is one of those books where you just have to dig in and commit to reading the entire first book and start the second before you toss it aside in irritation. The heroine, MacKayla Lane, is extremely frustrating in the first book, but she loses that irritating innocence fast, and the chemistry pay-off between her and Barrons in book 4 (I think? maybe 3) is SO WORTH IT!! Barrons is god. Well, he thinks so at least. 😉

      I have purchased so many books that didn’t realize that I have the Fever series! *shriek*

      I love Karen Marie Moning! I’ve purchased all the Highlander series and am halfway through reading them. Such a great author!

      I’m currently reading the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands.

      Cannot wait to start the Fever series.

      Thank you, DVK, for your response. I truly appreciate it!

      P.S. I am happy that Cat & Bones’s story runs longer. I’m also extremely excited about Vlad & Leila’s story. Have you Once Burned cover? Yummy 😉

    I love Maroon 5, and definitely have a crush on Adam Levine. Very hot and very clever.
