The Winners Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

Synopsis from Goodreads: As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions. 

One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin. 

But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined. 

Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.

Why Arin was an amazing Book Boyfriend:

Arin was an amazing character. He fought for his people valiantly. He was loyal to a fault, to the point of self sacrificing. He loved Kestral so fearlessly, so fiercly. He trusted her and valued her opinion. At times he felt like an open bleeding heart. The way he wanted Kestral so fully and undoubtedly. Even when she wasn't sure she wanted him. He waited, helped her heal. He never lied or played games. 
Seriously, I see Arin as this tall quiet force, one you can't mess with or throw off course. The way he stuck to his morals above all had my respect.
