Sidekick Showcase [42] - Love Interest's BFF

Sidekick Showcase, previously known as Sidekick Saturday, is a weekly bookish meme, hosted here by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn't have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! I will post my Sidekicks on Saturday, then whichever day during the week that you would like to post yours, you can put your link in on my page. Just do the following:

• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in the week's topic
• Share a picture (if you can) and information about the character
• Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don't include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• The day of your post, put your link in below and grab the code for your post so you can see the others that post their's throughout the week as well

September Themes:
September 7th - Spitfire

September 28th - Mischievous

This week is Love Interest's BFF

My choice is Spade - Bone's BFF
Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost

You have to really admire the guy that stands beside his best friend no matter how intimidating the heroine of the story is. I give props to Spade because he is 100% loyal to Bones throughout the series no matter what. I really love the way that I was introduced to Spade in the beginning. If you haven't read this series yet, you will really enjoy that scene in the woods. It was something special. Spade is always around when there is trouble, helping out, lending a hand - but the hand does have to be Bone's and not Cat's. 


“Kitten, this is my best mate, Charles, but you can call him Spade. Charles, this is Cat, the woman I’ve been telling you about. You can see for yourself that everything I’ve said is…an understatement.”

“Bones, what is everyone doing in here? Spade, cover up. Frigging vampires think everyone wants to see what they've got."

“You're shagging a woman who can turn into a dragon? Blast you, Charles, I am sick with envy!”

  1. I love Spade! The introduction scene was the best! Man, this is such a great series. You chose great quotes. My favorite is the cover up one. This is another series you and the sidekick crew introduced me to that quickly moved to my favorites shelf. I hope you're feeling better and get a chance to enjoy yourself this weekend.

  2. Hells yeah, Spade is an amazing BFF to Bones. Awesome choice. Love the quotes.

  3. Oop, we did it again! LOL *sigh* Yeah, I kinda love Spade...and Bones...and Vlad. Darn it! Jeaniene Frost is very talented at writing lovely men!!

    So obviously I think you're choice is primo! ;) I hope you're having a wonderful weekend, Jaclyn. All I want to do is sit around and re-read Cat & Bones. LOL

  4. LOL! That's great. Yes she certainly has a way with her men. I even love Rodney and he's a ghoul :D Spade is the best BFF in the books. Now I'm really wanting to re-read the series too! Have a great weekend :D

  5. Spade is pretty awesome. I loved that he kept his nickname to remind himself of what he'd gone through and how weak he once was. Best way to keep hubris at bay.

  6. I love the fact that he's never swayed to betray his best friend for the heroine of the story. That happens sometimes in other books so I really appreciate that about him. Thank you so much for stopping by!!

  7. Wasn't that the best? I love the way these two characters were introduced. The cover up quote was one of my fav's too especially because it reminds me of the completely crazy scene that it comes from LOL. I'm lying up on the couch with kleenex surrounding me sneezing my head off but I have 50 cans of soup and will hopefully be all better by weekend's end :D I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Geez. This is another series I've been needing for ages. Glad to hear you enjoy it so! :)
