Ok, so no one really *wants* to be stranded on a deserted island, but if you’ve got no other choice, wouldn’t it be nice to have some company? And by company, we mean a super hot guy to sit by your side, help you gather firewood, build a raft, you know, whatever it is that you do whilst stranded on an island. We’ve rounded up 12 of our favorite YA heartthrobs that wouldn’t be so bad to be stranded with. Wink wink.
A Map for Wrecked Girls – Alex
Alex will know exactly what to do because he has actual experience being stuck on a deserted island. Also, he looks really hot with a tan (no, that has nothing to do with the temperature).
The Valiant – Cai
Any guy from Ancient Rome who would spend his hard-earned money working for Julius Caesar to free you instead of own you is good in our book. And you know…. Abs.
Legend – Day
He’s confident, handsome, and is smart enough to score perfect scores on tests. More importantly though, his gorgeous eyes are more than 1 shade of blue… a lot better to look at than the dull 1-shade-of-blue ocean you’d be forced to stare at if you were alone.
Warcross – Hideo
Let’s be honest, the worst part about being trapped on an island is that you can’t do anything because you’re literally stuck. However, when you have someone who knows how to create virtual realities, you can go anywhere you want without having to GO anywhere.
Falling Kingdoms – Magnus
He’s complicated but fierce, dark but caring, and ruthless but irresistible. If you want an alluring companion who is not your typical guy, you can’t go wrong with Magnus.
The 5th Wave – Evan
Evan is the perfect island companion for practicality because he has experienced many different worlds and can easily adapt to new environments. He’s not afraid to kill, but he won’t harm those he is close to. Still, you’ll have to watch out because one of his best weapons is seduction.
Trouble is a Friend of Mine – Digby
Let’s be real, being stuck on an island can get really boring really fast and you’ll want some action and adventure. With a companion as eccentric as Digby, you’ll get all of that and more. He’s probably the only one who can solve the mystery of how you got on this island (his methods might not normally be legal—but it’s okay…you’re on a deserted island).
Nerve – Ian
Ian is a total bad-boy risk taker who isn’t afraid of anything. No, literally, he will do anything you dare him to do. He will make your island experience interesting to say the least.
The Wrath and the Dawn – Khalid
Okay, okay, so he has a rough exterior and bit of a temper, but, he’s secretly really sweet and treats those who he is closest to like they are the most important people in the world. With you two being the only ones on the island, you’ll probably get pretty close too.
Perfect Ten – Jamie
Not all boys have to be strong and confident to be the ideal island-mate. Jamie is shy and awkward, but he’s totally adorable. Not to mention, he’s a painting prodigy and we’re sure he can turn all of the sand on that island into a canvas that you can marvel at forever.
Truth about Forever – Wes
Since it’s just the two of you, you’ll want a good listener, and Wes is one of the best. He’s not afraid to get in touch with his sensitive side, and you can talk to him about literally anything. Sweet.
Rebel of the Sands – Jin
A sharpshooter whose skills are only rivaled by your own. Even if you’re not good with a gun, he’s there to protect you (if needed… we know you can totally take care of yourself), and he will always put his life before yours. He’s selfless, has his own beliefs, and you guessed it, a killer set of abdominal muscles.
