B is for Bad Boys (in books we love)

This boy doesn't play by other people's rules. Infact he will go as far as show he doesn't give a hoot about those rules. As far as he is concerned, rules are there to be broken. This boy/man's badness was shaped earlier on a child. He usually doesn't allow anyone close to his heart, and neither does he allow himself that kind of luxury.

In novels, there is always that bad boy who perfects those two words. He hides his inner goodness by being very sarcastic and probably throwing a temper, or just letting things roll off his shoulder, even though deep inside it hurts like he  sent the seventh circle of hell. He loves a good fight.

My bad boy book/tv boyfriends: Aa, there is Damon. Vampire diaries wouldn't be what it is without him. Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing. Damon from Obsidian. Seth Alton from KaSonndra Leigh's When Copper Suns Fall (Check out my interview Met Seth Alton yet, you'll understand. Better yet, read Copper Suns Oh yeah, and the latest one. He is so bad that it's caused lots of controversy. But once you get to know what happened during his childhood, take pity on him. Fifty Shades of Grey's Christian Grey. 
Then their is Will from Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel.

What are your 'love them, hate them' bad boys in books/TV?
