Peeta, The Hunger Games
This one's not entirely fair, since my crush on Peeta was preordained from reading the Hunger Games trilogy. Still, Josh Hutcherson is utterly charming as the kind-hearted boy with the bread, willing to do anything to spend a little alone time with Katniss. She may be conflicted about her affections, but I'd hunker down in a cave with Peeta anytime.
