Valentine's Blog Event: Ultimate Boyfriend Battle - Final Round!

Mirror, Mirror on the wall...
Who is the best YA boyfriend of them all?


THIS IS IT! The final round in the Ultimate Boyfriend Battle! You all voted like crazy to support your favourite guy and we now have the honour of presenting to you the 3 YOU voted for as your most swoonworthy boy in YA. The losing guys bowed out gracefully (alright, so maybe there were a few punches thrown and we swear the salty scent of tears still lingers in the air), but they each fought heroically and still remain the sexiest in many of their fangirl's eyes!

But right now it's time to focus on three. Two boys with a paranormal edge, the third working in black ops. Each has their own different brand of sexy working in their favour and each has a fiercely loyal following. Only one will survive this battle. So the only question that needs asking is: Who do you think is the Ultimate YA Boyfriend?

POLL

Voting closes 11:59pm 29th February US EST (or 3:59pm 1st March Australian EST) 

May the best man win!





PLEASE NOTE: You are able to vote multiple times, however it appears the poll host, PollDaddy, issues a 'cooling off period' which blocks users after they've voted a certain amount of times. We are really sorry for this, but unfortunately there's nothing we can do about it! :(

But to clear up any doubts: none of the boys are gaining an unfair advantage because of this. Logan, Alex and Sam fans have said they've been blocked while repeat voting. The reason Logan and Alex are so fair ahead is likely because their supporters are larger in number. I've seen them rallying support from fellow fans on social networks and they are so amazingly dedicated! <3

    1. Cait...I love Sam. But twice today I've gotten the message that, "We have received too many votes from you. You will be unblocked after a cooling off period." I don't know what is up with that. I only voted for about 5 minutes. I thought you were allowed to vote as much as you wanted, and I've seen people post on here that they voted for hours.

  8. ALEX! ALEX! ALEX! OMG, ANYONE who's read Hunting Lila has to have voted Alex. Seriously? I love music-loving wolves as much as the next girl, but ALEX! OMG!

  10. Alex all the way! He is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  11. WHAT A TOUGH CHOICE, ah! I love all three boys, but I had to vote for the underdog, Sam from Shiver! He seems like the most sensitive of all three, so he'd take losing a tad harder. Poor boy!

    Replies
    1. Awwwww Sam!! He is ADORABLE. Such a sweet, beautiful boy... but Alex... black ops... motorcyle... abs.... *drifts off into daydream*

      Delete
    2. *cough* Don't forget his abs...;) He's got nice abs right?

      Delete
  12. Vote for Logan! (Honestly I prefer Zachary, but even he's telling everyone to vote for L! #TeamKilt sticks together, people!)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What an amazing comment! #TeamKilt is amazing!! I also totally voted for Logan while preferring Zach. I don't dislike Logan, but Zach won me over in the end. I DO think Logan deserves this win, though. He is swoon-worthy for sure! Go, Logan! GO GO GO!!

      Delete
    2. #TeamKilt sticks together!! Go Logan Go!!

    3. Love Logan so much. He and Zach are so supportive of each other, it's great to see how well they get along now :) Go Logan! #TeamKilt shall always be loyal to the SHADEboys!

  13. I seriously need to read Hunting Lila....enough said.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I voted for Sam, but only because I haven't read the other two books yet. I really should do that...

    Anyway, excellent giveaway! (:

  20. I'm going to hold out voting on this one because I've only read one book out of the three, but I've had loads of fun watching the voting progress. It's always interesting to see who the most popular characters are.

    1. It intrigues me too! I'm actually really surprised that Jace didn't get in since he wins EVERYTHING haha. But Logan fans sure know how to rally an army!

      Delete
    2. They do... I was voting for Alex this morning and it seems like for every 1 vote I send for him, three Shade fans vote for Logan too. Very difficult to keep up... and the support and enthusiasm from Shade fans got me curious about the series. I'll read it over the weekend actually. Haha...

  28. Some of the early rounds were really tough choices for me, but this is easy! I'm voting ALEX!! Can't stand Logan (lol!) and I prefer Cole to Sam!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh my gosh, TEAM ALEX ALL THE WAY!!!!! Seriously, how could you vote for anyone but him?? He's sweet and charming and badass and hot and just downright Amazing with a capital 'A'... If I had Twitter, I think I'd be annoying everyone who followed me by how much I'd tweet, "VOTE ALEX!" and "I LOVE ALEX!" and "ISN'T ALEX SUPER DUPER HOT??" It would be a love-fest! :) <3

    *crosses fingers* I really hope he wins!! Oh, Brodie, the battle between Alex & Logan is going to be INTENSE! x)

  36. As I said on Lisa's blog, I haven't read any of these series, but thanks to the VDay Event, I think Alex is a perfect boy!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Brodie...can you tell me why I'm being blocked from voting? I voted this morning and got the message, "We have received too many votes from you. You will be unblocked after a cooling off period." I thought you were allowed to vote as much as you want? I came back on this afternoon, voted for about 5 minutes and got the same message. In the last 2 heats that wasn't happening. No way to help Sam win if I can only vote a few times a day. -Vivian

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I wish I knew the answer to that! It's obviously something with the host, Polldaddy. From my understanding, people are allowed to vote multiple times, as they've done in the other polls. I have no idea why it's blocking in this one =\ I'll check with Lisa, because the polls are uploaded on her account so it might say something there.

      Sorry!

      Delete
  38. Also..Is anyone else getting this message? Is it only me? Or is it only with Sam voters? Might explain why he's losing by such a huge margin when so many people say they are voting for him. -Vivian

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's not just the Sam voters. I kept voting for Logan, but it blocked me, too... -__- Thanks for the efforts to clear this up, Brodie and Lisa!

      Delete
  39. One more thing, then I'll quit bugging you. It doesn't say how long the "cooling off" period is. Maybe Lisa can find out. -Vivian

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No prob! You're not bugging me :) I've just asked her, so I'll let you know what she finds out when she's online.

      I don't think it's just for Sam voters, either. Kalasyn, above, said she voted for Alex a lot and also got blocked.

      Delete
    2. Okay, I just looked at the FAQ on their website about the cooling off period: http://polldaddy.com/faq/#ip-whitelist

      Well that sucks =\

      Delete
  40. Yes. That sux. So anyone having a static IP address can vote as much as they want, but people like me are limited. So unfair...guess I might as well give up. -Vivian

    ReplyDelete
  41. So... this sure was a tough one as I've not met any of them in a book yet. o.o LOL. I had to go for quotes and teasers, but, I think I found a good one. *nods* Alexxxxx. At least he's the ultimate YA boyfriend when looking from the outside *nods*

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ahora voté por Alex, sólo me falta leer el libro! jaja

    ReplyDelete
  43. Same problem here. I knew the cooling off period is 4 hrs... but even if i like return 6 hrs after, I only get to vote for a few minutes and then I get blocked again. :( Hey polldaddy are you a Shade fan or something? Hahahaha kidding.... :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nope. I'm a Logan voter and am down to just a few minutes before I get blocked again too. I swear it's gotten to be a LOT smaller amount of votes I can give than it was in the last poll too. It's crazy.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, I just find it funny imagining that the people behind Polldaddy read YA books too. Haha.. >< OMG, yes! I was able to vote many times in the last poll but for this one, I get blocked a lot. :/

      Delete
    3. Haha! It's nice to see even small businesses are closet YA fans :D

      Hmm, I'll try to get in contact with someone from Polldaddy and see if they can do anything about the blocking. I can't guarantee it'll be fixed, but fingers crossed!

      Delete
  44. I've only been able to vote 50 times before getting blocked.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Replies
    1. I'm steadily voting for Sam, but I can't do it alone. Come help me girl. LOL I can get him up to like 10%, then it blocks me. When I come back after the "cooling off period" he's back down and have to start over again. I think I'm wasting my time?

      Delete
  46. Sam because i've only read Shiver!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've only read Shade, so I'm voting for Logan! :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. A sudden surge in votes for Logan? Noooo!! Go Alex!! ALEX!!! GO!!! X3

    ReplyDelete
  49. I voted Alex...who is this ever popular Logan?? He is better than the ALEX, my GI Joe DOLLY...I must read this book and see why?????

    TEAM ALEX xxx

    Michelle

    Sam you are uber sweet but you are up against a GI JOE type and this Logan chappy...somebody enlighten me on Logan.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Logan is a super sexy, guitar playing, rock god! He deserves this many votes. He deserves MORE than this many votes. Go read Shade. He's ENTIRELY worth it. So is Zach, the second super sexy guy in the books who comes with a delightful Scottish accent and is an extreme astronomy lover. He deserves the votes as well, but we let him lose because he wanted to sacrifice himself for Logan's sake.

      With all of their amazingness, their author, Jeri Smith-Ready is even better! We are #TeamKilt and we are devoted!

      Delete
  50. Well, I do love Zach more than Logan, but he still gets my vote. :)

    I am definitely going to check out Hunting Lila, though!

  51. This is fun!! I voted for Alex!

    ~Brownie

    ReplyDelete
  52. I guess I'm the only one voting for Sam, and since PollDaddy will only let me vote a few times every few hours, I'm just wasting my time. Won't bother with these type things anymore. On the last rounds, they did not block you. I know because I voted for hours. -Vivian

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm sorry for your frustration. I understand as it's frustrating me as well. I did get blocked on the last rounds, though. It wasn't as quick as it is this time, but it happened. I've stopped getting blocked as much as long as I don't vote fast. I just vote a few times and go do something else for a while. Then I'll come back and vote some more. You don't have to wait too long and you can still get some votes in. Hope it helps!

      Delete
  53. I am a Zach girl, but I'm still voting for Logan, because Jeri Smith-Ready is darn awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Alex to win, deffo!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I am a HUGE Sam fan, so I'll be going with him on this one. I'd say sorry to the smexy Logan, but he's doing just fine in the polls without my help. Sam, I love you. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Such a surprise, but that's awesome! I voted Sam, as I haven't read Hunting Lila or Shade yet and so don't really know Alex & Logan! But I look forward to getting to know them, haha! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  57. #TeamLogan forever! That is all.

    ReplyDelete
  58. It really has to be Logan for me. How can you resist that violet glow?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wow! What a fun battle that was! I know #TeamKilt had an awesome time and we greatly appreciate all the effort put into this experience by Brodie and Lisa! Thank you both so much!!

    Also, consider Hunting Lila on my TBR list, Alex fans! Your spirit has convinced a lot of us to look into the book!
