My Book Boyfriend (Dimitri Belikov)

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie of The Unread Reader. Its a chance to pay homage to the hotties that haunt the pages of the novels we love. The men who stay in our thoughts late at night, who plague us during our long hours at work, who cause us to stare off into the starry night and sigh, because we want them here with us. Yes ladies, its the Book Boyfriend.
This week's book boyfriend is:
Dimitri Belikov from Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series
“Wait until next time," he warned. "I'll do things that'll make you lose control within seconds.” Um...I think I might have just passed out for a second because of that quote...whew...I have ADORED Dimitri since book one of Vampire Academy. I have been on board with that series since the very beginning when I bought VA on the week it came out. I love that the series has really gained a following and is appreciated for it's awesomeness in a swollen genre...I think a good portion of the awesomeness is because of one Dimitri Belikov. 

About Dimitri
  • He's  24 years old, has piercing blue eyes, and shoulder length dark brown hair
  • He's a hot foreigner from Siberia with a sexy Russian accent.
  • He can kick serious ass, and is hot as hell on the training and battlefield. 
  • He's a dhampir and has super-strength and fast reflexes but doesn't need to drink blood to survive. 
  • He's a teacher at St. Vladimir's Academy and coaches Rose personally in combat when she needs to catch up.
  • He likes reading...true, they are westerns, but a guy who likes to read=HAWT
"Roza. I did want you. I still do. I wish we could be together... If I let myself love you, I won't throw myself in front of her. I'll throw myself in front of you."
 “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.”

Oh Dimitri...How I love thee...seriously...I was heartbroken when certain events occurred in the middle of this series. I love him so much and can't wait to see if he appears at all in Mead's new Vampire Academy spin-off Bloodlines.  So who is your book boyfriend this week ladies? Someone as swoon-worthy as Dimitri can be hard to find...



  1. YES! Any guy who likes to read is HAWT...well maybe not any guy, but Dimitri for sure.

    I haven't read the books yet, but I already feel like I know Dimitri so well. He's a popular choice for MBB, so I've learned a lot about him. I love that first picture. Seriously, if he were my teacher, I wouldn't be able to do anything but drool on my notebook paper.

  2. I have Vampire Academy waiting for me at home. Need to get going and find out all about Dimitri!

  3. Dimitri is amazing and that man you picked for him is gorgeous! Wow.

    I know I couldn't believe Richelle Mead did what she did at the end of book three. I think I cried through the last couple of chapters.

  4. I loved the series BECAUSE of Dimitri, he really made it an amazing series.
