Say hello to the dangerous boys your parents always warned you not to kiss...
5. Four (Divergent by Veronica Roth)
When Tris leaves everything she's ever known behind to forge a new life with Dauntless, the fearless faction who protect society from harm, she is harshly thrown into a world of violence and pain.
But although her tough and undeniably gorgeous instructor Four seems to pick on her, putting her through the most rigorous training yet, she discovers that behind that steely, blue-eyed exterior they share a lot more in common than she'd ever imagined.
Tough and antagonistic, it's not going to be an easy ride, but then again, it's hard to beat a person that never gives up.
4. Kaspar Varn (The Dark Heroine by Abigail Gibbs)
For Violet Lee, a chance encounter on a darkened street draws her into a world beyond her wildest imaginings. A timeless place of vast elegance and immeasurable wealth – of beautiful mansions and lavish parties – where a decadent group of friends live for pleasure alone. A place from which there is no escape, no matter how hard Violet tries.
Yet all the riches in the world can’t mask the darkness that lies beneath the gilded surface, embodied in the charismatic but dangerous Kaspar Varn, a vampire prince with undeniable charm and a cut throat attitude
Violet and Kaspar surrender to a passion that transcends their separate worlds – but it’s a passion that will surely come at a price.
3. Jacob Black (Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer)
Despite his happy ending, we always though Jake got a rather raw deal in the whole Bella and Edward fandango.
Not only does he stick by Bella when her vampire boyf buggers off, but he rides motorbikes, has massive muscles and bursts out of his clothes into wolf form whenever he fancies. If that doesn't scream ultimate boyfriend material we don't know what does, and frankly reckon Bella needs her head checked.
The image of Taylor Lautner strutting about looking angry and hard done by while also just happening to be topless in the rain does a lot to fuel this one too..
2. Mickey McKenzie (You Against Me by Jenny Downham)
Not all stories make it simple to choose between right and wrong, and when 18-year-old Mickey McKenzie's family is torn apart by his younger sister's claims that she has been raped, he naturally seeks revenge on the boy, Tom Parker.
But it's not as easy as he expected and after meeting Tom's sister Ellie, who is doing her best to keep her brother out of prison, their grief, hatred and battle to keep their warring families together unexpectedly pushes them closer together than either of them would ever have imagined.
Falling in love isn't an option. Not when there's revenge to be had, anyway.
1. Will Herondale (Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare)
Seventeen-year-old Will is the sort of young man nice Victorian girls are warned against. He drinks, gambles, and enjoys the company of ladies of questionable virtue - at least, as much as he enjoys anything. Will hates everyone and everything, with the possible exception of Jem, and even that is occasionally in doubt.
It might be the second Shadowhunter novel to make the list, but there is something about Will we cannot resist. It could be the fact that he's dark, sexy and ridiculously clever, but it also has a little to do with the fact that he's also been cursed so that anybody who falls in love with him is doomed to die.
When this causes his sister's death, Will vows to keep everyone at arms length - that is until Tessa takes a liking to him. Realising that he is falling for her as much as she is for him, he is thrown into a quandry - to make her hate him in order to save himself, or to face up to his demons and the possibility of losing her forever.
The blue eyed, dark lashed description doesn't do too badly to put him right up here either. PHWOARR.
So what do you think of our list? Have we missed any ovary dissolving bad boys? And will you be picking up any of these picks for a read?
