I CANNOT CONTROL MYSELF

20070907-tn2_ewan_mcgregor_3preview

I LOVE Ewan ❤

 

Edinburgh is tomorrow guys. TOMORROW!!

I’ll be leaving Cardiff airport at 9am (leaving mine at 6am *groan*) and landing in Edinburgh at half 10am. 3 and a half days in the Land of the Hot guys in Kilts. YES PLEASE. I am besotted with Scottish accents (my BFF is Scottish) so I am *hoping* to just fall into the arms of a hot guy…or accidentally on purpose trip into his arms….we’ll see which one happens on the nights out. OR i can play helpless tourist….

I’ll then be meeting two ladies at the airport, who will be arriving the same time as me so we are going to go for coffee while we wait for our roomies – mine is the fabulous Emma Hart. So yes, I will grab everything she has in her suitcase just for you!

There is so much to pack into this trip and I REALLY want to find all the street names to the On Dublin Street series. Pretty sure the taxi man will have a field day with the amount he’s gonna get off me. Lets hope there are tram stops close to each sign. Time to do my research.

It will be awesome to meet everyone I have been talking to in the Facebook group too. As I am technically going alone to the signing as Emma is signing as an author, I have met some girls who are going alone too, so it will be lovely to have some people to talk and walk around with.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to fall in love with everything Edinburgh. Fingers crossed, I have been wanting to visit this city forever.

MANCANDY MONDAY! The place where the hot guys go!

ehufvndjvndks

Every Monday, Blame It On The Book Lovers will be discussing their favourite book boyfriend of that week in a meme called MANCANDY MONDAY!

We all love book boyfriends, so Man Candy Monday is all about sharing the love…and the hot guys around by letting everyone know the book boyfriend you have been swooning over this last week, and why!

Once you’ve posted your mancandy on your own blog, come back and post the link. We all want to know WHO your mancandy is this week and swoon right along with you.

This week The Book Lovers is featuring Brent Mason from Asking For Trouble – Tessa Bailey

7137513Okay, so THIS guy (I have no idea who he is….Google doesnt either) is my Brent.

IF you know me, you will know that i am obsessed with Tessa Bailey and her series. Daniel from Officer Off Limits was a firm favouite of mine…but Brent has slowly knocked him off the top spot…only by a smidge though. I wouldnt mind a Daniel, me and Brent sandwich 😉

Brent is a cocky asshole. He says what he wants, he doesn’t really give a shit either because, well, he’s the shit and he has the dirtiest mouth ever! Oh the things that come out of that mouth….. He submits to Hayden’s demands for control and to be fair, he was bloody turned on by this little minx and this game they were ultimately playing at first.

You see Brent shine through, you see how much his family mean to him, how much he supports them, so much so, he’s a blooming gorgeous grease monkey too! You start to see a different side to Brent too. One that Hayden doesn’t want to see as she just wants to see Brent for what she’s used to, but little by little, both walls are falling and they both begin to feel more than hate for each other the more they get to know one another. But with Brent and Hayden, they don’t tell each other their feelings and just fight and argue all the time, despite secret intense feelings for one another.

I loved watching his journey with Hayden, loved how he calls her ‘Ice Princess’ due to her upbringing, but also how he has always found her attractive just has never done anything about it, until she begins to play a game. He’s a protective teddy bear who submits but can also dish out the dom side. We watch his feelings change and grow for Hayden, watch him do anything to have her, and that ending. OH GOD, i was hoping to god he would get there in time and stop it and never let her go!

This is why Brent is my mancandy monday this week. Give him to me any day of the week!!

This week The Book Lovers is featuring Reese Pembleton from Second Chance Summer – Emma Hart

imagesSo my Reese is called Layton Draper

So having a few weeks off, yano how it is with a busy social life and work, my comeback is with an amazing and beautiful character named Reese from Second Chance Summer.

So why Reese? I dont even know where to begin. If you have read Second Chance Summer, you will completely understand why I love him so. For starters, he’s a mechanic (Check out the YUMMY photo below), he has a tattoo (you know i’m a sucker for those), he’s known as ‘Cowboy’ to Kia’s best friend (I love a cowboy) but most of all? Just the way he completely and utterly loves and adores Kia, even after a year apart. Even after she ran out on him. Now shes back and he is determined to make her see she is the one, that nothing has changed, his feelings havent changed and that he still wants her just as badly as he did a year ago – he has been pinning over her and will do anything to make her see he loves her, to make her see that although they are young, she is it for him and he will follow her to the ends of the earth just to have her.

His beautiful soul and his words are what hooked me – and they way he is oh so sexy and dirty (with oil and his mouth) and dear god, how he will cradle Kia when she is crying, how he learned guitar, how to dance and sing, just to show her he can do it, to show her that he will do anything to see her smile and laugh and will do anything to make her blissfully happy.

For all of you who havent read this book yet (and we WILL get a prequel and a second book with these two) you need to get yourself a copy and see why this book is amazing and why Reese deserves the ManCandy this week.

And now the photo you have all been waiting for….(I just want to lick him)

This week The Book Lovers is featuring Woods Kerrington from Twisted/Simple Perfection by Abbi Glines

jcjcLucas Bernardini is my Woods

If I’m being honest, Woods is definitely in my Top three book boyfriends. We meet him in Fallen Too Far and I wasnt really a fan. I wanted Blaire and Rush together but then in Never Too Far, holy jesus, i completely fell in love with him. From his caring nature to always being there for Blaire when Rush was being a douchebag to her and he always made sure she was okay. He was the perfect friend to her and I really wanted someone for him.

So when Twisted Perfection came out, and we got to know a hell of a lot more about Woods, well i fell deeper for him. His family life is so ‘twisted’, he’s never known love as his family dont exactly love, he wants freedom, the freedom to break away, be himself, experience everything but there’s a small problem and its to do with his family – he truly is a puppet to them. But when Della whizzes into his life, she turns it upside down, makes him see past the county club, makes him evaluate his life and what he really wants, and he wants Della and to be free, just like her.

It really is a big decision because really, this is all he knows, working hard to be the owner of the club, but when Della strolls into his life, she switches everything upside down and makes him really think about what he wants.

Woods is still the caring, most amazing guy we see in all the Too Far books and his love for Della is so strong that he doesnt want to be without her. Della has night terrors and when Woods finds out about them, thats it, he will do whatever to help her through them and the pain in her life and you can truly see the love he has for her. How when it comes down to it, he will choose Della over everything!

So that is why Woods is my Mancandy this week – and the fact that he is a god awesome dirty talker. HOLY crap, like get in my bed Woods!

This week The Book Lovers is featuring *SPOILER* Nash Davenport from the UHMAZING Bad Boys series by the great M.Leighton.

Charlie-Hunnam-Entertainment-Weekly-Photoshoot-sons-of-anarchy-32813999-810-1214

YES! Charlie Hunnam is DEFINITELY Nash!

So Nash is my Mancandy this week and SERIOUSLY how can he not be? Okay so i love his brother Cash, but after reading Everything For Us, well Nash kind of overtook Cash by a little bit…Okay a lot.

The reason Nash is my mancandy? He has been through SO much since he was supposed to be ‘dead’. He has been at sea for seven years, done things that he wouldn’t wish upon anyone just to survive and has seen things you wouldn’t wish on anyone. He was just a kid when he was ‘sent’ away and now hes back, hes changed – as you would. Hes tough, hes rough and he feels nothing for no one. His feelings revolve around anger and revenge for the people who killed his mother and ruin his life.

But over time and in the book, we see his exterior falter, we see him begin to care and begin to let his guard down around Marissa. He reveals things about his life that he has never told anyone, which in turn means his numbness is slowly breaking down and he’s beginning to feel things that he hasn’t in years.

The more time he spends with Marissa, the more he is beginning to fall for her, yet the both of them are just clueless to each others feelings. Nash is slowly integrating back into society and he is falling in love with Marissa. She is the reason he is feeling and he wants to be with her.

Nash truly is an amazing character. From everything that has happens in his life, from the anger he has felt for years to wanting to get his revenge and then to unlocking feelings that he never thought would happen to falling for Marissa, well he certainly does change over the course of the book and you will most definitely fall in love with him throughout it, especially at the end!!

So i present my Mancandy as Nash this week.

If you have yet to read the Bad Boy Series, then here is the order (Goodreads links):

MANCANDY MONDAY!! It’s a Just Breathe kinda day.

Every Monday, Blame It On The Book Lovers will be discussing their favourite book boyfriend of that week in a new meme called MANCANDY MONDAY!

We all love book boyfriends, so Man Candy Monday is all about sharing the love…and the hot guys around by letting everyone know the book boyfriend you have been swooning over this last week, and why!

Once you’ve posted your mancandy on your own blog, come back and post the link. We all want to know WHO your mancandy is this week and swoon right along with you.

This week The Book Lovers is featuring the man I LOVE SO MUCH, Mr Simon Davenport from Just Breathe – Rachel Brookes.

simon_baker_22_wenn2880530The beautiful man that is Simon Baker is MY Mr. Davenport.

Simon, or Mr. Davonport as Sav likes to call him, is my Mancandy Monday this week.

When writing Just Breathe, Rachel used to tease me with little teasers and when I read the first and second chapter she secretly sent me, there was just something about Mr. Davenport that i instantly liked. He’s the older man crush that you have (And i really do on Simon Baker….seriously, just look at him!), he’s there for Sav, gave her a job, took her away from everything to start a new life and she’s like a daughter to him.

Hes confident, cocky, suave, sexy. He’s protective and hes pushy but he does it for his love of Sav. He wants her to forget everything about her past life, her drinking and wild ways and one-night stands, and wants her to be a new her, someone who can be proud of herself because he is proud of her.

He comes out with brilliant lines such as: “For the last fucking time, please call me Simon. You make me sound like some kind of pimp when you call me Mr. Davenport”

and the sex appeal just oozes off him. He’s damn right swoon-worthy and that email that went around about him? I would have totally been the one to start it 😉

He takes everything with a pinch of salt…apart from when Sav is trying his patience, but you can see that she does it to wind him up and he just cant stay mad at her for too long.

He really is the one boss that you would love to have in your bed.

So this week, Simon Baker AKA Mr Davenport is MY mancandy monday.

This week The Book Lovers is featuring the gorgeous man that is Noah Adler from the book Before You Go – Clare James
So before I start my babbling, you need to know that I am completely rubbish at picking out a guy who resembles my BBF’s. Clare James really likes this meme and so I asked her if she could send me over some pictures that she thought were Noah.

So Clare sent me some pictures of Ryan Kwanten. She told me “Ryan Kwanten is a little old for Noah, but he looks the part! Plus, he’s an Aussie and I’m a sucker for Australian men :)”

I have to say, I bloody LOVE Ryan Kwanten and used to watch him in Home and Away, so this is now mine and Clare’s Noah!
ImageProxy.mvcRyan with glasses because yano, Noah is a journalist and all 😉

But yes, Noah is on my BBF list simply because he is an awesome character. There was just something that captivated me by him and from then on i was hooked on him. Despite Tabby only wanting him for a one-night stand, not wanting to pursue anything more, he worms his way into her life. First by being her friend and making her see that he’s not bad, if anything he’s one of the good guys, a really really decent guy.

>Noah doesnt lead her on, hes there for Tabby, helping her through her past and her present, always willing to go the extra mile for her. He’s sweet and charming and he cared deeply for Tabby.

Even though he didn’t know Tabby’s secret, he was there, helping her deal with her trust issues, helping her overcome her need to be in control of her life, and in the bedroom and letting her see that he would never do anything to hurt her. She meant too much to him.

Even though he has his own secrets, he is just the perfect BBF. He puts everyone needs before his own and even though you want him to put his first at times, you applaud him for being selfless. For wanting to help people out and for being strong for them, despite his own past.

So this week Noah is my MANCANDY!!

And before i leave you, here is one last picture to keep you going until next week 😉
ohhh yeahClare James says you are welcome 😉

NOW go over to my Co-Blogger Laura’s blog and check out who she has picked to represent Evan Matthews from the Breathing series as her MANCANDY MONDAY 😉
