Book Boyfriend: Kaz Brekker

October 14, 2017Krisha

It’s been said before and I’ll say it again: nerds have a very unrealistically high standard in guys thanks to fictional boyfriends.

Kaz Brekker may not be the standard-issue book boyfriend, but hey, we love him anyway.

Appears in: Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Why I love Kaz:

Okay, first off, Kaz is not the standard boyfriend. In fact, he’d like to think he’s the complete opposite. As the Bastard of the Barrel, Kaz “Dirtyhands” Brekker has made a reputation for himself. He’s a ruthless, conniving gang boss and he doesn’t take crap from anybody. He likes to win but doesn’t mind playing fair.

Kaz is not a good guy. Or so he thinks.

The truth is, Kaz is one scarred human being. But as hard as he tries to deny it, there’s still a small piece of him that’s unmarred by cynicism. The truth is Kaz cares about the people around him. It might be a select few people, but Kaz does care about his friends. He could deny it but I think he wants to be better for Inej, too. To deserve her, somehow.

What I love about Kaz is that he’s complicated. There are so many facets of him that you’d want to discover and I think Leigh Bardugo did a damn fine job with Kaz Brekker.

Not the usual book boyfriend fare, but we’ll take him any day.

Have you read the Six of Crows Duology? What did you think? ๐Ÿ™‚

    He’s my cute little cinnamon roll ๐Ÿ˜€ I especially loved the end of Crooked Kingdom, when *spoilers* Inej and Kaz had their little moment and Kaz was so self-conscious upon meeting her parents haha what a cutie
