Special Someone Saturday- Noah Shaw

*This post does contain some mature content (quotes from the book) so please be cautious*
How many of you have read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer or The Evolution of Mara Dyer? If you have, then you can probably guess who my special someone is this week. If you haven't, well this week my Special Someone is... NOAH SHAW! He is definitely in my top 5 for book boyfriends, and one of my favorite bad boys.
Noah is the type of guy I would describe as every parent's initial nightmare. He is the total bad-ass  the guy with a reputation, and mas such a mysterious life it's quite shady. But as you get to know him, he becomes that misunderstood guy; who in actuality is true sweetheart. 

During the YA sisterhood tournament last to last year this picture was used as the official button for #TeamNoahShaw. I must say Noah is seriously sexy. I mean come on, how is not: 

“In my rush, I hadn't tied my shoelaces. Noah was now tying them for me.
He looked up at me through his dark fringe of lashes and smiled. The expression on his face melted me completely. I knew I had the goofiest grin plastered on my lips, and didn't care.
"There," he said as he finished tying the laces on my left shoe. "Now you won't fall."
Too late.”
The fact he even noticed her shoes were untied is just sexy. Besides his looks, his personality and love for Mara adds to the sexiness. Oh, the air of cockiness helps too.
“What are my options?"
"You could read obscure poetry while I play the triangle, I suppose. Or we can smother ourselves in peanut butter and howl at the moon. Use your imagination."
"Fine,"I said. "You take my hand and back up toward the bed."
"Excellent choice. What then?"
"You sit down, and pull me down with you."
"Where are you?" he asked.
"You pull me onto your lap."
"Where are your legs?"
"Around your waist."
"Well," Noah said, his voice slightly rough. "This is getting interesting. So I'm on the edge of your bed. I'm holding you on my lap as you straddle me. My arms are around you, bracing you there so you don't fall. What am I wearing?"...
"What do you usually wear to bed?" I asked.
Noah said nothing. I opened my eyes to an arched brow and a devious grin.
Oh my God.
"Close. Your. Eyes," he said. I did. "Now, where were we?"
"I was straddling you," I said.
"Right. And I'm wearing..."
"Drawstring pants."
"Those are quite thin, you know."
I'm aware.
"Right," he said. "So what are you wearing?"
"I don't know. A space suit. Who cares?"
"I think this should be as vivid as possible," he said. "For you," he clarified, and I chuckled. "Eyes closed," he reminded me. "I'm going to have to institute a punishment for each time I have to tell you."
"What did you have in mind?"
"Don't tempt me. Now, what are you wearing?"
"A hoodie and drawstring pants too, I guess."
"Anything underneath?"
"I don't typically walk around without underwear."
"Only on special occasions."
"Christ. I meant under your hoodie."
"A tank top, I guess."
"What color?"
"White tank. Black hoodie. Gray pants. I'm ready to move on now."
I felt him nearer, his words close to my ear. "To the part where I lean back and pull you down with me?"
"Over me," he said.
"The part where I tell you that I want to feel the softness of the curls at the nape of your neck? To know what your hipbone would feel like against my mouth?" he murmured against my skin. "To memorize the slope of your navel and the arch of your neck and the swell of your-”
Not that we have established the sexiness of Mr.Shaw, let's talk about the fact he is freaking gorgeous at the same time a genius!
Noah has a few scenes where his intelligence is featured. Along the whole story Shaw, plays a huge role in helping Mara discover who she really is and why the world works in certain ways. I would elaborate but that would be a HUGE spoiler, so not going to do that! 
In real life I would have to say Noah Shaw = Man Irons.
Both are incredibly sexy, and if Irons were to be Shaw I have a feeling he would see through the role with perfection.

There is a lot about Noah that I love, but you will realize what those things are when you read both the books. *Hint: My favorite scene is the one where Noah claims to know how to say something in 7 different languages. It is freaking hilarious*

So who is YOUR special someone this week? If you also love Noah tell me why! Leave your answers in the comments below :D
