Ah, my friends, you *are* in luck today! As I am “snowed” in (Arkansas standards=2″) I am bored out of my mind. Since I have already eaten 2 bowls of white rice (made in my FAB rice cooker!) I will now pen yet ANOTHER blog for your reading pleasure, as I am sure that you are as bored as I am!
As I have mentioned in the past, I am a ferocious reader. Even more so, I read on Amazon’s Kindle. I adore it and insist that you go look at it and watch the videos about how it works.
OK, so, now, back on topic. I read a lot and in my boredom, I have been contimplating the fictional “crushes” that I have developed. Quite disturbing (ok- and yes, a bit sad)
Crush #1: One of my first fictional crushes, from Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books: Ranger. Ah, Ranger. The quiet, fierce, mysterious, hunka-hunka burning love. I realize that Stephanie could probably never make a “real” relationship with him work…what with the fact that he is an unlawful bounty hunter-type and all…but when he shows up and hits her with “Babe.” I melt a little inside. And book #7? OH YEAH! Best Stephanie book by far! I highly recommend this series. Especially if you have a fondness for New Jersey, as I have.
Crush#2: When I stumbled on the fact that the HBO series “True Blood” is based on a series of books, by an Arkansan author, no less…I jumped on that! The Sookie Stackhouse series is the FIRST books I read on my Kindle and will always hold a special place in my heart. Now, as far as my fictional crush, you must read at least to book #4 to understand. And if you watch the series, you have no idea, but I *love* Eric! Oh Eric the viking vampire with his long, blonde locks and body of steel. How his commanding presence demands attention from a room. And oh, how the shower scene in book #4 is highlighted in my Kindle for quick reference…wait. What did I just say?? Ignore that….
Crush #3: Thanks to my Cyber-BFF Love4BRATS, I found the JD Robb “In Death” series. JD Robb is also known as Nora Roberts. Yup. Same person. Anyhoo, in the In Death series, we are introduced to Eve Dallas, who is a remarkable heroine with her bad ass cop self and tortured past….yet what I admire most about her is her uber rich, gazillionaire, ultra hunky Irish hubby: Roarke. Roarke who is as handsome as he is rich- also with his bad boy turned good background. His love for Eve is unmistakable and the lovemaking between these two married lovebirds gives hope to all wives everywhere: steamy!!!
<sigh> How sad is it that on my cabin fever days, I think about fictional men? Sadness, I know!
If you have a fictional crush, I would love to know who it is. Perhaps I will need to pick up a new book to see if I need to expand my list!!! Maybe you agree with me on mine, then please let me know! The best thing that you can do for me is to assure me that I am not alone in my fictional crushes. (Please?)
