Hi, everyone! Welcome to the 1st NA Crush Tourney hosted here at NA Alley! We are a version of The YA Sisterhood’s Annual YA Crush Tourney, and we would like to thank them for allowing us to host our own version of the tournament to celebration new adult book heroes!

Be aware there maybe spoilers in some of the advocate posts that support the new adult heroes. We’ve allowed the advocates to use excepts from their assigned NA Crushes’ books as well as other teasers, so just be mindful of that when you read the posts.

Matches will run for 24 hours, 12 a.m. to 12 a.m. EST every Tuesday and Thursday. Voting will only take place here on NA Alley, and the polls don’t allow multiple votes.

Please check out our “NA Crush Tourney” page for all up-to-date information regarding the Tourney, and last but not least, have fun!


Hi there, our names are Willow and Donna and we are from The Romance Cover. We are the advocates for the total hottie, Lucas from EASY by Tammara Webber.  We are a relatively new blog, although we met a year ago through our love of books after Willow started a forum thread entitled "Looking for books like EASY" (and two other books) and Donna answered. So you can see we totally loved EASY and Lucas! Here's why:
It's EASY to vote for Lucas..... Just look at his bio:
Name: Lucas
Eye Colour: Clear gray - blue
Hair: Dark 
Build: Medium but muscly
Height:  6ft 2in
Distinguishing Features: He has some hot tattoos and a lip ring
It's EASY to vote for Lucas because:
·        He's Artistic - he loves sketching and drawing, especially his girl.
·        He's intelligent – Economics private tutor, engineering major
·        He rides a motorbike – need we say more!
·        He's a protector - He rescued Jacqueline from a dangerous situation without even knowing her and continues to do so.
·        He works hard, has many jobs to put himself through Uni.
·        He's fit and security conscious - he teaches self-defence classes, master of Taekwondo.
·        He’s been through a lot but came out the other side a better person, whereas others would have just given up.
·        He respects Jacqueline - he doesn't want to rush with her:
 "Jacqueline say stop" I shook my head once, my palm sliding down to press against the evidence of what his body wanted from me. "Don't Stop," I breathed, telling him that I wanted what he wanted, unconditionally. I kissed him back, sure in the knowledge that my actions and my words were all the confirmation he needed to continue. I was wrong."Say stop, please. Please." The last word whispered was a plea I couldn't deny, even if I didn't understand the reason for it.
·        He's attentive: 
“I noticed you the first week. Not just because of how pretty you are, though of course, that played into it. It was the way you lean onto your elbows when you're listening in class, when something catches your interest. And when you laugh, it's never to get attention, it's just-laughter. The way you obsessively tuck your hair behind your ear on the left side, but let the right side fall down like a screen. And when you're bored, you tap your foot soundlessly and move your fingers on the desktop like you're playing an instrument. I wanted to sketch you.”
·        He makes good coffee and can cook! - ;-)
·        Tattoo’s!!! – yes we know we have mentioned them already, but seriously….
It’s EASY to vote for Lucas..... Just listen how Jacqueline's friends talk about him:
Erin"Who was that hot guy? If I wasn't stone cold sober, I'd think he was a figment of my sex-starved imagination"
Maggie: "Who was that beautiful guy and more importantly, why didn't you solve your sex-starvedness with him? Holy hell, I think i'd be willing to boot Will outta bed for a night with him" 
It's EASY to vote for Lucas.... Just listen to Jacqueline:
Pulling off the cap and dropping it on my bed, he placed the pencil on his sketchbook and slid both hands through his flattened hair, and then shook it out, resulting in a bed head look. Good God. When he drew the hoodie over his head, his white t-shirt pulled up a bit with it, and I got my answer on how fat the tattoos extended. Four lines of script, too small to read, snaked around his left side. Some sort of Celtic-looking design balanced it on the right. Bonus: I now knew what Erin meant by lickable abs.
“The way he kissed me felt like a brand. Like he was tattooing himself under my skin.”
My last coherent thought, as Lucas took his time kissing and touching every part of me he could reach and my body arched into his, was Oh... so this is what all the fuss is about.
His breath in my ear, he ran his tongue along the curved edge, sucking the fleshy lobe and my small diamond stud into his mouth, and my eyes drifted closed while I babbled a weak sound of longing.
It's EASY to vote for Lucas..... Just look at our favourite Scene:
“The night we met – I’m not like that guy”. His jaw was rigid. “I know tha-“ He placed a finger over my lips, his expression softening. “So I don’t want you to feel pressured. Or overpowered. But I do, absolutely, want to kiss you right now. Badly.” He trailed his finger over my jaw and down my throat, and then onto his lap.
I stared at him. Finally comprehending that he was waiting for a response, I said “Okay”.
He dropped the pad onto the floor and the pencil followed, his stare never unlocking from mine. As he leaned over me, I felt a heightened sense of awareness of every part of my body that touched a part of his – the edge of his hip pressed to mine, his chest sliding against mine, his fingers tracing from wrists to forearms and then framing my face. He held me in place, lips near my ear. When he kissed the sensitive spot, my breath shuddered. “You’re so beautiful”, he whispered, moving his mouth to mine.
His lips were warm and firm, pressing against mine, and when his tongue began a gentle onslaught against the line of my lips, I opened them. Tongue delving into my mouth, his hands travelled in opposite directions – one to my still crossed wrists, pressing them hard into the mattress above my head, one skimming down my side, digging into my waist. He kissed me harder, claiming the responses he coaxed from me. My head swam, and I was drawing in short bursts of air as if I was surfacing every few seconds before diving deeper. Just when I thought I couldn’t take the intensity, he lessened the pressure and sucked my lower lip softly, brushed his tongue over it, and then repeated the movement. I fidgeted beneath him and his tongue slipped between my lips again and repeated its closer examination – caressing my tongue, my teeth, the roof of my mouth.
If someone had asked, How does this compare to kissing Kennedy? I would have answered, “who?”
Now that is what we call a first kiss!!! Hawt!!!
 It's EASY to vote for Lucas..... Just look at our favourite line:
"Choosing to be with you isn't a difficult decision Jacqueline," he breathed, pulling back one final time to stare into my eyes. "It's Easy. Incredibly easy."
So now you know why falling in love with Lucas is so EASY, it makes the decision to vote for Lucas incredibly EASY.  Vote Lucas now!


Hi! We are Brittany and Bianca of Brittany and Bianca Blab Books! Brittany is a wife and a Mommy to the most beautiful and fun three year old. Bianca works in higher education but would much rather spend her time with her nose in a book. We’ve bonded over our love for books! Our crush is the one and only Kellan Kyle, lead singer of the D-Bags and the star of the Thoughtless Series by S.C. Stephens! With the help of some special friends and #TeamKellan, we are determined to see Mr. Kyle straight through to the winner's circle in the NA Crush Tournament!

For those who have never heard of Kellan Kyle, climb out from under that rock and be prepared to swoon… Sit back, relax, and get ready to hear all about our crush!

What makes Kellan such a catch?

Looks: So is Kellan gorgeous? Sexy? Drool-worthy? All of the above! I mean, just check out this picture.

Go ahead... Drool a little... We'll wait...

“No one would be able to overlook him—He was drop-dead gorgeous. He had intense eyes… His light, sandy-brown hair was a thick, wild mess. It was longer on top with shorter, shaggy layers all the way around… it was alarmingly attractive on him…”

Pair that delicious description with an unbelievably sexy smile and a “fabulous” body, and you have a perfect ten!

OK, so he is SEXY. What else is there?

 Personality: Of course, looks aren’t everything. What does Kellan Kyle have going on behind that beautiful face? He has a fun and playful personality. He is fun to be around and a great friend to his band mates. He has had his share of pain to endure in the past, but when he loves, he loves with his whole heart and soul. He is a bad boy that believes in true love. He’s compassionate and laid back. He loves his guitar, his Chevy Chevelle, coffee, lounging in the park, love note scavenger hunts, and Denver omelets.

Talents: Yes, we said talent! Our boy is a triple threat; the whole package! As we said, he is the lead singer of the D-Bags, a popular, local band in Seattle that just might hit it big one day *wink* Yes, he’s the star… But how good is he, really??

“His voice was melted sex. Yes, melted…sex.”

Melted sex?! I mean, come ON. You can’t top that… Unless you add on the fact that Mr. Kyle also plays guitar. Who doesn’t love a rock star?!

And a sentimental one, at that *sigh*

"...my life was empty before you stepped into it. I thought I had everything I needed, but only because I didn’t let myself want anything. And then I saw you, and you burned a hole straight through me. I have never wanted anything more in my life."

Oh, Kellan we love you too. And to show our love for our favorite crush, #TeamKellan came cup with a little something special, entitled...

Crushin' on Kellan
Kellan Kyle is so wild,
He'll make you melt with just a smile.
Kellan Kyle: sex on a stick,
You'll want a taste, you'll want a lick.
His caresses will take you to the moon,
But that's not all that will make you swoon.
He'll always make sure you have a good MORNIN'
He's so addictive, he should come with a warning!
You'll fall for him over a cup of coffee,
And if you're good, he'll serenade you softly.
He's Seattle's resident rock god,
A voice that sexy should be outlawed!
Just look at him and try not to drool,
That body will make you wet in other places, too...
That screw-me hair, those bedroom eyes,
Mmm, he'll have you hypnotized!
We're sure you'll agree, he's so swoon-worthy.
Now help him WIN the NA Crush Tourney!

And on that note

We believe you should vote for Kellan Kyle because he is the ultimate book boyfriend. He is a talented, sexy singer and a complete hopeless romantic.

“You finally get it.”
“Get what?”
“That I'm yours... that you can take me... anywhere, anytime, anyway. That you own every piece of me.”

He loves with his whole heart and more. He is passionate, eager, and intense about music, life, and most importantly, love. And he definitely knows how to make you feel special, like you’re the only girl in the world.

“And he was the reason I felt it. His gaze, his touch, his smile, his laugh, no one had ever made me feel... worshiped... quite like he did.”

Any lady would be lucky to have him, this is why he is our #1 CRUSH!

We think we’ve made our case. But if you still need convincing, check out this video with some of our favorite Kellan quotes, featuring Devin Paisley as Kellan Kyle. We’re sure you’ll find him just as swoon-worthy as we do!
