WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT!! Congratulations to Dawn who has replied to her email notification and has won this gift!

Today’s giveaway is for a set of VERY popular books that had so many of us in a swooning frenzy/uproar. The first one (Love Unscripted:The Love Series, Book 1) started off indie, and went crazy, and the set has since been signed and re-published by Atria (Simon and Schuster).

Book #2 (Love Unrehearsed: The Love Series, Book 2) isn’t even findable in print yet!! Findable? ;) Is that right? hehe. Too bad. I’m keepin’ it!

So, there are two books on their way to me, signed by Tina Reber, and I’m pretty sure BOTH of ‘em are “Galleys”. As far as Tina can remember anyway. She’s been knee deep in packages these days, but one thing’s for sure. BOTH books #1 & #2 are signed!

What are galleys? Good question! I asked Tina and she said:

“They are the first runs – not completely 100% proofed… they are a very limited print… They say “not for resale” on them”

All I’m hearing is “collectors items!!” LOL!!

Gorgeous books, gorgeous stories, and hard to get in this format. What say you? Want ‘em?

I know I do.

 

How to enter for a chance to win the signed set? Just leave a comment below (or better yet, since this is a series about an A-List actor who falls in love with a “normal girl”, tell me who your favorite actor is and give us some details. When you first swooned over him, why he makes you crush so hard, etc… AND BETTER YET!!! Have you met anyone famous?? Ohhh that might be a good story right there!)

So anyway, tomorrow night (Friday December 14th, 2012) by 10pm EST, I will randomly select one winner.

The winner will be contacted and will have 48hrs to respond with a mailing address, so if you are picked, do not delay or you will lose your chance. Sorry for my international readers, this is a open to U.S. residents only (but you’re welcome to comment and join in any time!!).

And while you’re here, if you haven’t already joined me (actually “us”, ’cause we’re a big group now) on Facebook and Twitter, whatcha waiting’ for?!

I guess my favorite actor at this time would be…Ryan Reynolds. He’s very nice to look at and gotta love that bod! I think of him when I read most of these books and they describe men with dark hair and the perfect body. I haven’t read these yet…they would be great!! :)

Rilana December 13, 2012 at 9:10 PM

Oooh, I haven’t read these books yet. :-)

Tina Harris December 13, 2012 at 9:12 PM

Mine would have to Channing Tatum……absolutely LOVE LOVE him!!!! I could watch him in just about anything…..Definately would love to read these books.

Brandi Franklin December 13, 2012 at 9:13 PM

Would love to win these :) Favorite actor is Ryan Gosling….majorly crushed on him in the Notebook and everything since then….he is sexy, funny, and an amazing actor!!!

Stephanie December 13, 2012 at 9:13 PM

excellent books! Ryan Gosling cause he is just yummy!

Nikee McFann December 13, 2012 at 9:13 PM

I loved these books. I pictured Ryan Gosling as Ryan and I love him! I think Matt Damon is awesome, too, bc he fell for a “real” girl and married her so he reminds me of Ryan in the book.

Julia December 13, 2012 at 9:14 PM

Nathan Fillian (Castle)…good looking, charming, good sense of humor!!! Love him lol!!!

Allie T. December 13, 2012 at 9:14 PM

It’s gotta be Ryan Gosling, nothing beats him in The Notebook.

Melody December 13, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Would love to win these books! Thank you for the opportunity!!

Dyann December 13, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Yay! I would love to win these.

crystal December 13, 2012 at 9:15 PM

mine would be Ryan… he had me at the end when he sang the song at the end…sigh..had me in tears…

Anima G. December 13, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Always loved Ryan Reynolds, ever since 2 guys a girl and a pizza place! Back up would be Christian Bale, that crush goes back to Newsies! Gotta love a strong hunky blonde.

Jennifer Alvarez December 13, 2012 at 9:16 PM

Yay for Tina Reber books!!!

Claudia t December 13, 2012 at 9:16 PM

Channing Tatum <3

Bojana R December 13, 2012 at 9:16 PM

I love Ian Somerhalder as Damon in The Vampire Diaries. That’s where I saw him and fell in love with him. Love at first sight. ;) I also can’t dismiss my feelings for Alexander Skarsgard. He’s totally yummy in True Blood. I think I have a thing for Vamps.

Laura December 13, 2012 at 9:17 PM

Please Please Please Im going in for surgery in Jan. and would love to have something good to read.

Philana December 13, 2012 at 9:17 PM

Bradley Cooper does it for me, purely on looks! But I like Ryan Reynolds too!

Melissa Creighton December 13, 2012 at 9:18 PM

These will be new reads for me.

Lindsey December 13, 2012 at 9:18 PM

Not sure that I have a actor crush…I like Ryan Glossing tho :)

Sonia December 13, 2012 at 9:18 PM

oh I would LOVE these!!!!!!!

Kimberly December 13, 2012 at 9:18 PM

too many to chose from so I’m gonna say Ian Somerhalder that boy is just fine

Alexis A December 13, 2012 at 9:18 PM

Ryan Gosling is my favorite! He can play any role. He can play the good guy, like in The Notebook, or the sexy villain, like in All Good Things!! Ive never met anyone famous, but I would probably pass out if I met Gosling! I love Love Unscripted and Love Unrehearsed. I love how down to earth Ryan is, and how he sticks by Tarryn through good and bad :)

Sandra December 13, 2012 at 9:19 PM

I love Robert Pattinson!! I’m a team Edward fan!! I did meet Peter Facinelli who played Carlisle Cullen very nice down to earth guy! I love Channing Tatum!! Sexy !! Please pick me to win!!!

Vera December 13, 2012 at 9:19 PM

I never liked to read until I jumped on the 50 band wagon and now I’m hooked. When I read these books and it describes the male figures I generally visualize Matthew McConaughey as he appeared in Magic Mike.

Anna Marie December 13, 2012 at 9:20 PM

I love Alexander Skarsgard, I can admit it is all lust. I love to look at that man and he does put himself out there in True Blood.

Shanna December 13, 2012 at 9:21 PM

The actor I have the biggest crush on right now would have to be Michael Fassbender…so incredibly sexy. I’ve watched X-Men First Class so many times just for him ;)

Kristy S December 13, 2012 at 9:21 PM

These two are my absolute favorite books! I even bought them on audible so I could listen anytime. :)

Brandy December 13, 2012 at 9:21 PM

Andy Garcia “When A Man Loves A Woman”!!

Kellee December 13, 2012 at 9:22 PM

I have three favorite actors. Robert Pattinson, Ben Affleck, and Ryan Reynolds <3 love them all so much!! Ben has been my longest crush because that started early in high school :) As for meeting crushes, I've met my favorite band, Story of the Year, on many occasions and even got to go back stage and on stage with them <3 I had a serious crush on the drummer :) anyway, awesome giveaway!!

Sarah December 13, 2012 at 9:23 PM

My favorite actor is Taylor Kitsch, I loved him as Tim Riggins in Friday Night Lights. So I guess I first noticed him in that role, though he’s been in a few other movies. Texas, football hotties, no shirts, what is there not to love?! The only famous person I’ve met was Kellie Pickler, after a concert she performed in with Brad Paisley. Wish it had been him I met! ;)

Sherry :D December 13, 2012 at 9:23 PM

MY.ALL.TIME.FAVE.BOOK.EVER!!! just sayin
besides *our beloved* Z

My favorite is Jonathon Rhys Meyers when I 1st watched him in August Rush !!!!! And I met Motley Crue from back in the day….Nikki Sixx *swoon*
Thx Maryse…this is so awesome

Mindi Stacey December 13, 2012 at 9:24 PM

Ian somerhalder….hehas that dirty sexy vibe…sooo hot!

Jen December 13, 2012 at 9:24 PM

I love Charlie Hunnam!! He’s so yummy!!

Amanda Gale December 13, 2012 at 9:24 PM

Oh I have yet to read these books…I have to agree Ryan Gosling, he was best in the Notebook.

Whitney Cummins December 13, 2012 at 9:24 PM

I’m completely into Arrow at the moment. He is just perfection! Haven’t met any celebrities, just a few MLB players. Fingers cross for T.R.’s books! Thanks!

Erika December 13, 2012 at 9:25 PM

Hands down Ryan Gosling! Love him!

Becky Schmidt December 13, 2012 at 9:26 PM

My favorite actor is Ben Affleck. He is so hot. At the moment though, after reading both of the love books is Jesse Spencer (Chicago Fire and House). He is the perfect Ryan Christianson!
The famous person that I can think of that I met would be Peyton Manning. Not such a great story though.

Stacey C December 13, 2012 at 9:26 PM

Ryan gosling …no wait Damon from Vampire Diaries…or maybe Chris Hemswoth…no, no, definitely all 3 of them at the same time in my bed :)

Ashley December 13, 2012 at 9:26 PM

My all time favorite would be Joey Lawerence, you know from Blossom, lol. That is when I had my first crush, I had everything from posters to sleeping bags, pins, everything a tween wanted. Still to this day, when he plays on TV shows I still get a little giddy, with the shaved head and ALL :) I have never met anyone famous, but if I had the chance to meet a person it would be Anne Rice, I love her writings and stories. I have not read either of these books, let alone heard of them and am always up for a good beat the odds love story :)

Becky December 13, 2012 at 9:26 PM

My favorite all time actor is Johnny Depp. I’ve liked him since I first saw him on 21 Jump Street. And the fact that he got his start is music is a plus. Have I met any actors? I’ve been told, (although I don’t remember, I was 5) I apparently met Barry Bostwick at my grandmother’s. He was/is my aunts friend from high school.

As for Tina’s two books, I read them both twice. I’m waiting for Love Unrehearsed to be in print so I can add it to my collection of favorite books. Kindles great but there’s nothing like having the book in your hands.

Irene December 13, 2012 at 9:26 PM

Jay Hernandez is my movie star crush! He just flippin adorable with his dark skin and amazing dimples when he smiles. I first crushed in him when I saw him in the movie Crazy/Beautiful! He is one sexy Latin Lover <3

DeAnna Vincent December 13, 2012 at 9:27 PM

I love these books so much!! I’ve never really met anyone famous. I totally felt every emotion Taryn went through. As any dreamer, I pictured myself as her.

Leslee Machado December 13, 2012 at 9:27 PM

Have never read these books nor have I heard the hype about them. More to add to my never TBR list.

Christine December 13, 2012 at 9:27 PM

Ian Sommerhalder from Vampire Diaries- met him at the grocery store. We were both coming around a corner and ran our carts into each other!

Carrie T December 13, 2012 at 9:30 PM

I would have to say my fav actor is Channing Tatum! He is absolutely yummy. Of course I love him in Magic Mike.. A LOT.. HAHA, but my fav movie of his has to be 21 Jump Street. I laughed non-stop.. can’t wait for the second one to come out!

Nancy L.R December 13, 2012 at 9:31 PM

HENRY CAVILL! I first swooned over him in the film “The Count of Monte Cristo” where he played “Albert Mondego” and OMG! He is so gorgeous and that body! Yes I am totally objectifying him, but what woman wouldn’t? He is a god. He looked looked so handsome in the Victorian clothing! Ever since then, he’s pretty much had me in the palm of his hand! LOL!

Jacqueline December 13, 2012 at 9:31 PM

My favorite actor would have to be… Ian Harding <3 Oh my goodness he so attractive and the way he dresses on Pretty Little Liars (; I fell for him episode 1 season 1 of PLL and he seems to be getting even more attractive. And the way he dresses guys! Oh my gosh, ties, bow ties, cardigans, sport coat; he's got it all on there! I haven't met him but i have his autograph a friend sent me! The only celebrity i've met is Jason Castro.. He preformed at my church recently and i went to hos concert and got my picture with him. Oh wait i lied, i met Coblie Caillat at her sound check. And Adam Thornton and Tracey Gold at an acting convention!

Maryse December 13, 2012 at 9:31 PM

Ok and then…? What did Ian say, Christine? You can’t leave us hanging. DETAILS!!! LOL!

Amanda December 13, 2012 at 9:32 PM

One of My favorite actors is Channing Tatum. Ever since She’s the Man came out I have thought he was total eye candy!!!

Heather P December 13, 2012 at 9:33 PM

Oh mine is Jonathan Rhys Meyers too! August Rush is one of my all time favorite movies!

Marsha Shew December 13, 2012 at 9:33 PM

I do love Matt Bomer! Haven’t read these books yet…. They are on my TBR list though :) . Thanks for the giveaways :)

Cathryn Zuniga December 13, 2012 at 9:35 PM

One of my favorite actors is Channing Tatum. He is very good to look at, but the reason why I really like him is because he is a very good dancer. I met Lauryn Hill while working at a children’s play area. She was there for a fund raiser. I also was able to meet Princess Diana when I was in the sixth grade; my parents worked at a shelter and she visited the shelter.

Jody Duffy December 13, 2012 at 9:35 PM

I love Chris Pine and Channing Tatum. I loved these books and have tried to win signed copies in the past with no luck :( I so appreciate the chance to win them.

Suzy Stork December 13, 2012 at 9:35 PM

My favorite actor I guess would be Ryan Reynolds. He’s so nice to look at. As for famous people, I’ve met several country artists as I used to date a DJ at one of the old country bars that used to be in town. Oh the after hours parties after concerts.

paula k. December 13, 2012 at 9:36 PM

Kevin Costner’s is my fave. I love his soft voice.

Stacey Ball December 13, 2012 at 9:36 PM

Tina is one of my fav authors, love these books!! Bradley Cooper is one of my favorite hunkys right now along with Channing!! So many hotties right now! I would love to win these! yay!

Desiree December 13, 2012 at 9:36 PM

ummm i would have to go with josh hartnett i fell hard for him in pearl harbor!!!! But Irene I have to say Jay hernandez does have the sexiest dimples ever!!!

Donna December 13, 2012 at 9:36 PM

I love Bradley Cooper!!!! He was hot in the Hangover II.

Lisa December 13, 2012 at 9:37 PM

Great blog, great giveaways…thanks!

Beth Knipple December 13, 2012 at 9:37 PM

Alexander Skarsgard, from True Blood, love the brooding looks he can give. Had lunch with Peter Frampton, many years ago, snuck backstage at an all day concert and ended up sitting with his crew and got invited to lunch. Actually got to watch the whole concert from the wings.

Faith Lowery December 13, 2012 at 9:37 PM

My favorite actor would have to be Johnny Depp, I always thought he was sexy, but I didn’t really swoon over him, until I heard him speak French, fluently, and listened to him play the guitar, and read many of his philosophies on life… he’s a lot more than meets the eye, and a man with intellect is the most attractive man there is. Also, Ian Somerhalder. I think he is strikingly handsome – and he has a foundation called “Ian Somerhalder Foundation” … for misfits and outcasts, to save and rescue animals and animal shelters. When BP had the big oil disaster in the gulf the ISFoundation donated time and bucks to save local wildlife, and got involved – hands on, with more than money, to wash oil from animals that would’ve died otherwise — things like that. To me, those kind of things outweigh looks, as luck would have it, Ian has looks and brains and heart, just like Depp.

I’ve met a share of celebrities too. Including getting a kiss from Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day) at a concert, where a security guard was being very mean to me, hit me, actually. It was right next to the stage, and he saw it, and Billie Joe actually stopped the concert, and said “Hey man, not cool” and took my hands, lifted me onto the stage, and asked me if I was alright, gave me a hug, and a kiss (on the lips! but chaste.) and helped me back down. :) It was pretty great.

I’ve never read these books, and I would really like to.

Teresa H. December 13, 2012 at 9:39 PM

My favorite actor is Joe Manganiello (Alcide) on True Blood. He had me at his first “growl”. He’s yummy! Great giveaway.

Sarah December 13, 2012 at 9:40 PM

Love unscripted is on my ever growing tbr.. need to get on that ;) better yet if I win it will be awesome! Ryan Goseling is definitely who I’m crushing on and will probably be that way forever The Notebook made me sa-woon bigg time! Ughhh what I’d do for a man like that! Haha!!

DONNA ROTHROCK December 13, 2012 at 9:40 PM

PICK ME! PICK ME!!! PLEASE :-)

ashly c December 13, 2012 at 9:40 PM

My favorite actor right now is Ryan Gosling! My hunny looks like him a bit and I love it! He made me swoon hardcore in crazy stupid love, yum!!

Lauren S. December 13, 2012 at 9:41 PM

I would have to say that my favorite actor is Ryan Reynolds. The Proposal is one of my favorite movies so, naturally, he is my favorite actor! He’s soooo handsome!

Kimberly December 13, 2012 at 9:42 PM

It would have to be eye candy Paul Walker tall, handsome, gorgeous smile, and those blue captivating eyes. I first saw him in the movie Skulls. I met Cissy Houston when I was a member at New Hope Baptist Church.

Jen December 13, 2012 at 9:42 PM

I am in loooouuuuuve with Tom Hardy!!!!! He is soooo yummy!! I love his full lips and his muscly body. Mostly I like him because he strikes me as the type that belongs in a Kristen Ashley book if you know what I mean ;) ;)

Joanne Careri December 13, 2012 at 9:43 PM

Love this series! My celebrity actor boyfriend is Bradley Cooper. He was so drool worthy in the A-Team.

Tammy December 13, 2012 at 9:45 PM

Want to read these. My favorite actor is Timothy Olyphant. :)

Michaela December 13, 2012 at 9:45 PM

Gerard Butler! I love him! Sexy accent, rugged looks and the fact that he can sing — oh baby! oh baby! Plus, he’s a man and woman’s man! (guys like him in movies like 300 and Law Abiding Citizen, and women love him in everything… or lack thereof ;) ) I don’t even care that he’s 20 years older than me! I think it adds to his charm!

I’ve also met James Franco — random Starbucks run-in while I was working in Cali! I didn’t even realize who it was until the barista told me! (James had told me his name and it didn’t register at all!!! He also asked for my name — sadly, nothing ever came from it haha) I immediately ran back to some of my co-workers and was super excited! Nobody believed me until he walked past us and said that it was nice meeting me!

Jenn December 13, 2012 at 9:45 PM

Love this series! Lately I’ve been crushing on Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds. Yummmm!

Karen December 13, 2012 at 9:46 PM

Ben Affleck, Since Armageddon, he is sooo yummy

Stephanie December 13, 2012 at 9:47 PM

Robert Pattinson. I’ve read the first book but not the second. I really want to read it.

Clarice December 13, 2012 at 9:47 PM

Favorite actor, without a doubt, would be Robert Downey, JR. So gorgeous and even better looking in person! I saw him at one of his premieres and attended a Leno taping with him as a special guest and OMG! So hot! He’s a great actor, too, and I’m hoping one day that I can meet him personally ;-)

Kaitlin December 13, 2012 at 9:51 PM

My favorite actor would b Bradley copper bc he is so nice to look at or Jason stathom bc I love my men a lilttle bad!

Jerri December 13, 2012 at 9:51 PM

Love Channing but cant forget Matthew McConaughey. Would love to read these.

Kenna December 13, 2012 at 9:51 PM

My fav at the moment would have to also be Ryan Gosling. Actually fell for him back in Murder by Numbers. He just has the “it” factor that draws you in. I don’t get to attached to actors though, because they seem to let you down in the end w some TMZ story. I think that’s why I love books so much. They rarely let you down. :) I haven’t read these yet and would love too, so pick me!

Anne December 13, 2012 at 9:55 PM

Haven’t read these yet. Would love to check them out!

Holley December 13, 2012 at 9:55 PM

I would love to have these books! Channing Tatum is is quite yummy :)

Susana Dorado December 13, 2012 at 9:55 PM

Favorite Ryan Gosling saw first in Murder by numbers.. He is so hot… Loved the scene in Crazy Stupid Love wearing no shirt and Emma Stone says you are photoshopped ….haven’t met him yet…

Melissa Hardy December 13, 2012 at 9:56 PM

Johnny Depp!! OMG he is just too smoking hot to handle! He is awesome in everything that he does and can play anything. I actually found out my infatuation with Johnny (yes, we are on a 1st name basis, lol) when I was about 9 and watched Edward Scissorhands, I have been hooked since!

Stacy m December 13, 2012 at 9:56 PM

Haven’t read yet, on my list to read. Omg Channing Tatum – Step Up is when I went crazy for him, he is hottest with a capital H

Melissa December 13, 2012 at 9:58 PM

Ryan and Channing <3……..swoon!!!

Jennifer Jones December 13, 2012 at 9:58 PM

Ian Somerhalder he is gorgeous!!!
No famous sightings here

Caitlin December 13, 2012 at 10:00 PM

Favorite actor is Norman Reedus! Ugggghhh when I first saw him in Boondock saints I fell in LOVE..he’s so deep and just beautiful! And now that he’s on the walking dead its totally one of my favorite shows!

Melissa December 13, 2012 at 10:00 PM

Ummm…Channing Tatum is super hot but I also love his movies.

ktiu December 13, 2012 at 10:01 PM

hope i win :D

LibLo December 13, 2012 at 10:01 PM

Channing Tatum….mmmmm crushed hard on those
Eyes…..body didn’t hurt either LOL…..

Michelle Earle-Stone December 13, 2012 at 10:03 PM

My favourite actor is Robert Pattinson! I was never one to join in the hype and hysteria of Twilight when it first came out, so I deliberately didn’t watch it. However, about a year later a friend suggest I sit down and watch it with her and as soon as he looked up and into the cafeteria doors and met Bella’s ( and my) eyes, I was hooked, a goner. So needless to say that was it for me :) he is gorgeous, funny and mysterious, which I love and not only can he act, but he can play musical instruments, sing and his smile can make my knees weak!
On another note, I have worked on a play with two well known actors here in Australia, Tempany Deckart and Kerry Armstrong and they were absolutely lovely people, I had a great time with them :)

Alethia December 13, 2012 at 10:03 PM

Alex Pettyfer!! YUMMERS! I first noticed Alex in the movie Beastly and then the movie I Am Number Four. *Sigh* I could just stare at him all day! lol.
I’ve met Fat Joe, the rapper, when he came into the Wendy’s Restaurant I was working at. I made his sandwich!! Okay, I didn’t officially meet him, meet him but I still talked to him. :D

Andrea K December 13, 2012 at 10:03 PM

Ben Affleck does it for me every time. If only I met him when he was a regular guy in Cambridge, and I was going to school right down the street. Sigh! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Katherine December 13, 2012 at 10:04 PM

Ooohhhh!!! This is on my TBR list.. Please please please pick me!!

Maria December 13, 2012 at 10:04 PM

Patrick Swayze. First saw him in The Outsiders and I hàve been hooked since I miss him as àn actor.

Traci B. December 13, 2012 at 10:05 PM

Oh loved these books

Elyse December 13, 2012 at 10:06 PM

Favorite actor…at the moment Tom Hardy..love him especially in This Means War. Man in suit – check, cool job – check, muscles – check…and who doesn’t love his natural British accent ;)

Laura Diaz December 13, 2012 at 10:07 PM

My favorite actor would be Channing Tatum! He’s just so dreamy! I read the interview he did for People magazine and that only made me swoon even more!

Andrea December 13, 2012 at 10:07 PM

What a great gift. I’m kind of old school. I love Colin Firth.

Heather T December 13, 2012 at 10:10 PM

These are my favorite books this year…I even just bought the audio books! I can’t even begin to explain how this series affected me! As for my fave actor…yep, I’m gonna go there…Donnie Wahlberg :) . I’ve met him a couple of times and he is a genuine sweetheart :) *swoon

Krista December 13, 2012 at 10:10 PM

These books look great!

Christie December 13, 2012 at 10:10 PM

Channing Tatum FOR SURE!!! Absolutely gorgeous and down to earth. Fell HARD for him after Step Up.

Jennifer N December 13, 2012 at 10:11 PM

Would love to read these books! Channing Tatum would be actor at the moment.
Recently did get to meet Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters! Please tell me you know who he is. We went camping by Santa Barbara, California on our annual trip! And guess who was camping next to us! Coolest guy ever! I can send you a pick Maryse! I know how you like your rock stars!!!

Lauren December 13, 2012 at 10:15 PM

There are too many actors that I love and have a crush on!

Anais G December 13, 2012 at 10:16 PM

I love these books! Would enjoy having copies to allow my non ereader friends to read!

Felicia December 13, 2012 at 10:18 PM

Sexiest actor: Channing tatum

Cary I. December 13, 2012 at 10:19 PM

Oh…. this is hard. I think I have to go with Taylor Kitsch. I LOVED Friday Night Lights… I HOPE I WIN!!!!

Julie December 13, 2012 at 10:19 PM

Ive never seen anyone famous and don’t have a fav actor…….all I do us read!!! ;)

Robyn B December 13, 2012 at 10:20 PM

My favorite actors who are absolutely swoon worthy are Michael Fassbender, who I first saw in the British tv show Hex (he played a fallen angel) and Daniel Craig (to me he is the ultimate James Bond).

Mercedes Gabaldon December 13, 2012 at 10:21 PM

Oh my gosh I so want to read this series. !! Pick me.

Wendy Callahan December 13, 2012 at 10:24 PM

Tina is an awesome writer. I hope to be as good as her one day ;) These are two of my favorite books!!

Rebecca Bonar December 13, 2012 at 10:24 PM

Oh I want these so bad. Love Unscripted is one of my favorite books and I have not got to read Love Unrehearsed yet but want to sooo bad. Actor’s that make me go pitter patter are Alexander Skarsgard and Hugh Jackman.

Lindsay R December 13, 2012 at 10:25 PM

I LOVE Johnny Depp! And I would love these books! :)

aubery December 13, 2012 at 10:25 PM

I kinda have a crush on Ian Somerhalder. I didn’t find out about him until Vampire Diaries, but oh boy is he HOT!

My crush on Leonardo DiCaprio first started when he did Romeo and Juliet. After watching it, I went back and watched all of his previous movies. I think he was the first guy I ever saw naked…I used to watch that scene in Total Eclipse over and over again. :-) ~

Dawn M. December 13, 2012 at 10:26 PM

Ian Somerhalder and Alexander Skarsgard

Tracie December 13, 2012 at 10:26 PM

I haven’t read these.

Jennifer M December 13, 2012 at 10:26 PM

COLLIN FIRTH!!!!!! HOTTIE!!! Bridget Jones’ s Diary!!!! LOVED IT!!!

Karen Lawson December 13, 2012 at 10:27 PM

I guess I’m showing my age, but the actor who has sent me spinning is Kevin Costner. I think the first movie I really noticed him was Bull Durham and I was a goner. I still call him My Kevin!

What a great prize this contest has! Thanks for a chance to win!

Andrea James December 13, 2012 at 10:31 PM

Great Giveaway! My fav actor is Hugh Jackman. Pretty much ever since I saw him in Austrailia. Hello!!! Have you seen the “water dumping” scene?!

Angie K December 13, 2012 at 10:31 PM

Oh man…I guess it would have to be Ryan Reynolds! Hot and FUNNY! what a fantastic combination!!!

Nancy December 13, 2012 at 10:32 PM

I”ve never met anyone famous but my sister has a cute story of riding in an elevator in las Vegas with 007 Sean Connery! And while she didn’t dare say anything he winked at her when she got off! He he!

Joanna I December 13, 2012 at 10:36 PM

Henry Cavill… O m g yummmmy!!!! Loved both books, I actually have a friend reading them and she is hooked :)

Kit December 13, 2012 at 10:41 PM

I wouldn’t say I have one favorite actor on my list but Sean Bean rings my bell. Also, I totaly might push my hubby down to get to Gerard Butler.
As far as meeting a “A Lister” when I was a teenager, been awhile, Sebastian Bach, from the band Skid Row, was opening for Bon Jovi. He jumps out into the crowed and lands on little old me! Let me tell ya the smile, wink and him helping me up made my teenage existance worth while.

norma December 13, 2012 at 10:41 PM

Jonathon rhys meyers from tudors would be my choice. I hope i win. I hope i win.

Jen F. December 13, 2012 at 10:43 PM

My favorite actor would have to be John Cusack. Better Off Dead, Say Anything, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil … The list goes on. While I have met famous people & professional athletes, it’s cool, but they’re regular people like me. It’s just that their job is different.

Kayla December 13, 2012 at 10:44 PM

I’d have to say George Clooney. Soo hot! Gets better w/ age. Gotta love that. Never met anyone famous. All the above actors r hot too. I’d love to have these books. They r on my TBR list :)

Bonnie December 13, 2012 at 10:46 PM

Johnny Depp!! Love everything about that man…*swoon* :)

Yunet December 13, 2012 at 10:47 PM

My favorite actor is Shahrukh Khan. He is a Bollywood actor and the first time I saw him on screen it was in 1997 when PBS used to air AVS on Fridays at 9:00pm and he was in a song from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. I love him as an actor b/c he brings life into each of his characters and he makes the audience care about their trials and tribulations. He is extremely charismatic and seems like a fun person to meet.

Dena December 13, 2012 at 10:47 PM

Chris helmsworth is my FAVORITE male actor ever. Muscle, great eyes, strong facial features……pure perfection. Amazing as Thor! I picture him many times when reading books with larger than life leads. Of course in these books I always picture Ryan Reynolds. He seems to fit into this book more so. I love these books!

Anita Fleming December 13, 2012 at 10:48 PM

My favorite is Nathan Fillian from Castle. Love him in this series and also when he was in Fire Fly. The only famous person I have ever met was Richard Branson -Virgin Airlines owner and Adventurer. I was a Travel Agent in San Francisco and Virgin started a new route from San Francisco to London and he threw a big Travel Agent party. Shook his hand and chit chatted for about a whole 2 minutes but hey….I TOUCHED a famous person!! Hehehe

Nikki Eddy December 13, 2012 at 10:48 PM

I fell in love with Henry Cavill when I read 50 shades. He was my Christian. Then I watched Tudors and I was done, finished. He was plain ole MINE after that.

Jennifer December 13, 2012 at 10:49 PM

Daniel Craig…love those eyes…

Jennifer December 13, 2012 at 10:50 PM

Jason Stathom cause he’s hot!!!! Never met him.

Jacqueline December 13, 2012 at 10:51 PM

Sorry, i have no clue how to comment but it was just his autograph sadly :( But i loveee it none the less! and oh goodness: spell check much, i ment Andrew Caldwell, not adam yikes! I spaced on his name there for a minute!

Sarah Hampton December 13, 2012 at 10:52 PM

Mark Wahlberg!!!! Have you seen him in his tight boxer briefs?(Squeeee) Enough said! Channing Tatum comes in close second but i cant really fantasize about someone younger then me not yet at least lol and Mark is a fantastic actor in every movie Hes just yummy!!
xoxo

Bridget December 13, 2012 at 10:55 PM

James Scott (EJ DiMera for all of you Days of our Lives fans)! I think it is because I imagined him as a version of Christian Gray! :)

Brandi Wa December 13, 2012 at 10:55 PM

Jason Statham…ohhh man that accent gets me every time. He’s hot and such a bad ass in his movies. I haven’t met anyone famous, but my DH loves to tell his story about how he “worked out with Stifler” at the gym (in reality, he just passed by him on the stairs in the gym LOL).

Nicole A. December 13, 2012 at 10:55 PM

Mark Wahlberg is my favorite actor. He’s hot, funny and a badass. Remember the days of Marky Mark :-)

Missy December 13, 2012 at 10:57 PM

Two of my favorites!!!

Minha (BrazGirl) December 13, 2012 at 11:00 PM

I love Robert Pattinson!! He’s too Sexy and that British accent kills me… I would love to save him from his crazy fans by hiding him in my bedroom… :) Please pick me, I never win anything… And I have not read those books yet.

Ashley F December 13, 2012 at 11:02 PM

Oh I’m blanking…

Nicole Wheeler December 13, 2012 at 11:04 PM

I love the first one. Haven’t had a chance to read the second one yet! Hoping I win! :)
Hmm, my favorite actor would definitely be Channing Tatum. There are tons of times when I swooned over him, but I think during Dear John might’ve been one of the first times!

Maria G December 13, 2012 at 11:05 PM

*sigh* Channing Tatum…ever since Dear John…love at first sight!

Maria Esquivel December 13, 2012 at 11:09 PM

My favorite actor has to be Ryan Phillippe. Loved him in the movie Cruel intentions. Fell in love with his actors named Sebastian. My second son’s name is Sebastian. So that’s the story behind my sons name. Thanks for the giveaway.

Melissa December 13, 2012 at 11:11 PM

Has to be Channing!!! Would very much like to read these two books-thanks for the chance to win!!!!

Nikki A. December 13, 2012 at 11:13 PM

My sis-in-law and I swoon over Joe Manganiello (Alcide) every week when True Blood is on! He is the epitome of the perfect man!……And loved those books. Would be great to have them in print!

Michelle M. December 13, 2012 at 11:14 PM

Gotta go with Anson Mount or Alexander Skarsgard. Both hot alpha types. WISH I had a story about meeting either of them. And I would love to win these books. Haven’t read either but they sure look good.

Jessica Sotelo December 13, 2012 at 11:18 PM

I. Love. These. Books! Definitely book shelf must haves!!!

Edyta December 13, 2012 at 11:19 PM

I have a total girl crush on Kate Hudson <3 and my man crush is Adam Levine…effin LOVE HIM TO PIECES! I have a slight obsession with Maroon 5…I listen to Maroon 5 mostly while I drive, my 15 month old son recognizes their music haha He claps and squeals all excited when one of their sons comes on.

Way back in the day I met Justin and Joey from NSYNC, as well as Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block. He actually opened for NSYNC when he did his solo thing. It was pretty awesome. My bestie's birthday – her dad got tickets for the NSYNC concert and we got to the venue early. Jordan was doing meet and greet so we went and said hi then Justin and Joey came out to say hi to the fans. Damn… I kinda miss the teeny bopper days of boy band obsession

Jenn December 13, 2012 at 11:20 PM

I think I first fell in love with Mark wahlburg in the Calvin Klein underwear add…….yummy. Marky Mark and the funcky bunch stole my heart forever… hehe

Chrissy S. December 13, 2012 at 11:24 PM

Channing Tatum! Pick me!

Sara December 13, 2012 at 11:25 PM

Haven’t read these. Yet! Favorite actor is Bruce Willis… so handsome, but haven’t seen him for awhile…

Leslie December 13, 2012 at 11:27 PM

Paul Walker! Good lawd that man is delicious.

I “met” John Stamos in NYC last winter. Does it count as meeting if my friends and I (had too much to drink and) stopped him when he was leaving a restaurant and asked to get a pic with him. He was really nice and talked to us for a bit. Very handsome!! Then we felt like eating greek yogurt.

Ooh, Armie Hammer is on Conan…he’s cute…

Jayme Hallman December 13, 2012 at 11:28 PM

Love Channing Tatum and also Josh Hartmett. Started really liking Josh after Pearl Harbor and Channing after Step Up.

Rose December 13, 2012 at 11:36 PM

My crush would be Matt Damon because he’s such a great actor- especially in the Bourke series.

Kim December 13, 2012 at 11:37 PM

Ryan Gosling as Noah Calhoun…’ enough said.

Joanette Fountain December 13, 2012 at 11:42 PM

I’m going old school with my all time favorite actor who is Brad Pitt! Have been watching him since Thelma and Louise. Current love is Channing Tatum…but gotta say I am also pulling for Ian since he is from Louisiana; my home state!

Sarah Handrich December 13, 2012 at 11:48 PM

My favorite actor is Johnny Depp! He is so sexy! I could watch any movie that he stars in over and over and I absolutely love the sound of his voice! I wish I could meet him in person! I haven’t met anyone famous but would love the chance to someday! :)

Debra December 13, 2012 at 11:52 PM

Have these on my nook but would love signed copies!!!! Can’t think of an actor crush….been reading too much and watching little tv or movies, lol!

Ashleigh December 13, 2012 at 11:53 PM

These were some of my fav books this year! Love Ryan and taryn!

Amber Gleisner December 13, 2012 at 11:56 PM

Matthew McConaughey…….I think it was in “A TIme to Kill” I can’t quite remember the first movie of his I saw….. Either way, he is HOT with an even hotter Texan Accent to go with those baby blues!

Jaimie December 14, 2012 at 12:05 AM

OMG!!! I would die if I got to meet Channing Tatum or Liam Hemsworth!!!!!! Ugh.. the last song, dear john and step up! Oh my goodness.. those blonde haired, dimpled gorgeous men. Especially Channing Tatum because he is an amazing dancer (Magic Mike is my guilty pleasure).
The only famous person I have ever met is John Stewart. He vacations where I live and I waited on him at the restaurant where I work. He says that it is his favorite place to go for breakfast when he is here. He’s kinda cute in person :/… sounds kinda like taryn’s story ;) too bad he’s like 30 years older than me :D
These books are top 5 on my list of favorite books and if I got a signed copy of them both I would be the happiest person in the world! (unless I got to meet one of my hot crushes ^) A must have for my book collection when I have my own home library someday.

Jenn December 14, 2012 at 12:14 AM

Ian Somerhalder – he’s absolutely gorgeous and generous – I mean he wants to save the animals, come on!! And he’s my perfect Christian Grey!!

Paula December 14, 2012 at 12:16 AM

These books are on my TBR list!!! How exciting. You ROCK with these give-a-ways!!! Never, Ever thought I would crush on this actor….but after watching ‘The Holiday’, I was smitten for sure: Jude Law. He took my breath away in the movie. As far as meeting famous people….yep, I’ve met a few but sorry can’t name drop – I’m a nurse and that would be a BIG NO NO.
Merry Christmas.

Salli December 14, 2012 at 12:17 AM

Dave Matthews he is artsy, passionate, uplifts me and brings me back down, He speaks to my soul.

Evelyn Recinos December 14, 2012 at 12:18 AM

Josh Duhamel in When in Rome!!!

Sandy December 14, 2012 at 12:26 AM

James Franco! I’d totally love to meet him one day!!

Brooke December 14, 2012 at 12:31 AM

Yeah! This is an awesome giveaway!! Thanks!
I love Ryan Reynolds!! I fell in love with him in the movie “just friends”, I think it’s so cute that he does super silly roles like when he was in “waiting”. He is just yummy!!!

Allison December 14, 2012 at 12:34 AM

Thanks Maryse! Ian Somerhalder held the door for me at NBC studios in L.A, a couple years ago. He was doing Leno that night and I was on a studio tour. He’s pretty to look at and seemed gentlemanly in person. It’s my closest celebrity encounter.

Kathy M December 14, 2012 at 12:46 AM

Gerard butler does it for me

Kaileena December 14, 2012 at 12:52 AM

Omg. I’ve read the first book already and I thought it was soooo good! I can’t wait to read the next book!! <3 as for actors, I've always liked Keanu Reeves! Ever since I saw speed when I was in 4/5 grade lol LOTS of movies from him I love, such a great actor! I also like Ryan Gosling, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner…etc all those other hot actors ;P as for meeting anyone famous, can't really think of any. I know that I've met bands n stuff but they aren't that famous. Um.. Yeah. Lol I hope I win, thanks for the opportunity!!! :D

Valerie December 14, 2012 at 12:59 AM

My favorite actor of the moment has to be Mark Paul Gosselaar who most people know as zac Morris from saved by the bell which is where I first laid eyes on him at a mear 4 years old I knew I loved that wonderful hot human being and knew i was going to marry him (still waiting for that !) and although I haven’t seen him on much throughout the years I recently saw him in a Christmas movie and I love him even more knowing that he’s not only hot but a good actor ! :)

Regina S. December 14, 2012 at 1:08 AM

My son was 10 yrs. old when my brother and I took him to go see Kenny Wayne Shepard Band. I totally kept harassing the guy with the KWSB to let my son and I on the bus to meet the band. He finally relented and we both got his autograph, meet the band. My son got a guitar pick.

Regina S.

Brenna December 14, 2012 at 1:10 AM

Ryan Gosling & Jake Gyllenhaal ;)

Danielle Grater December 14, 2012 at 1:14 AM

Alexander Skarsguard (hope I spelled that right) totally on love with Eric Northman and Alexander is just soooooooo fine!!!

I really want to read this series!!!

Len Francisco December 14, 2012 at 1:18 AM

I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt in (500) Days of Summer!

Sabrina D. December 14, 2012 at 1:21 AM

Would love to read these books. My guy would be Leonardo DiCaprio. Fell in love with him in Romeo and Juliet.

LisaMarie December 14, 2012 at 1:24 AM

Johnny Depp is my favorite. He’s great in everything he does.

Cassie Hoffman December 14, 2012 at 1:34 AM

I have to say Ian Sommerhalder(DID I SPELL HIS LAST NAME WRONG?) He is super sexy and those eyes are to dye for! He makes me swoon every time I seen him on tv….he is my choice for Christan Grey as well :)

Tania December 14, 2012 at 1:40 AM

Great choice Maryse! Love these books!

Jennifer F December 14, 2012 at 1:46 AM

I love love love these books!

Kelly December 14, 2012 at 1:47 AM

Chris Hemsworth! Yum! I haven’t met any celebrities (not many come to small-town South Dakota!)

Annie December 14, 2012 at 2:03 AM

Come on lucky blog post!

Linh December 14, 2012 at 2:47 AM

If Ryan gosling walks into my bar…I’d lock the door and never open them again.

Jackie December 14, 2012 at 2:51 AM

Hi! I’ve been waiting to get signed copies from the author. I hope she has an opportunity to buy signed books in case I don’t win…keeping fingers crossed! Happy holidays!

Keri December 14, 2012 at 3:17 AM

Patrick Dempsey is my favorite. I just love that gorgeous mane of hair of his.

Angelia December 14, 2012 at 3:29 AM

Have not read these yet but I so want to .

Mel December 14, 2012 at 3:40 AM

I love me some Channing Tatum!

Pam Carrion December 14, 2012 at 3:56 AM

First off let me say that I love these books!! A great look into celebrity life. I have a soft spot for them because even though it is there job to entertain us they are just like everyone else and deserve a life and to find love so as cheesy as it maybe I was so happy I cried at the end because they were happy and able to make it work even if it was only pretend. (Hehe). That being said my swoon worthy actor is Ben Allfeck!! Not only is he yummy but he is a great actor, director and writer (Oscar at 25 not bad). I loved him since the start and could watch Mallrats over and over. Plus even though it was a flop I love Jersey Girl! I love that he supports his home town in his movies (I am such a Beantown girl at heart). He has reinvented himself as well…Argo…hello Oscar number two! Plus he was just one of Barbara Walters 10 most fascinating people! That has to count for something! Team Ben! He seams like a real life Ryan to me! Can not wait for more from Tina!

Jordana December 14, 2012 at 4:33 AM

I hope I win this amazing gift.

Kim Riddell December 14, 2012 at 4:44 AM

Hmm ….. this is tough but I would say Brad Pitt in Troy is my absolute ultimate FAVORITE! REALLY hope I win. Would love to read these books. Thanks

Esther December 14, 2012 at 5:07 AM

Yay! I would love to win these

Brianna Lee December 14, 2012 at 5:09 AM

Channing Tatum is definitely swoon-worthy! Id love to meet him ;D I fell in love with him in Step Up (the original!) Ahhh he was soo sexy and very sexy in every other movie and had me near fainting with those moves in Magic Mike! Admiteddly, the plot didn’t do much for me but his moves sure did – it was for visual purposes!!

MJ Fryer December 14, 2012 at 5:15 AM

I first fell for Robert Redford when I was around 12 after seeing The Way We Were…swoon…Anyway, I have loved him ever since and he is truly the only blonde man I have ever lusted after!!! Even with his older looks now, he can still make my heart skip a beat. Yes, I am dating myself…what can you do ;)

Stacy Eastwood December 14, 2012 at 5:49 AM

Dermot Mulroney is one of my favorites!! I also have quite the crush on Colin Firth and Channing Tatum…………….there are so many actors that are swoon worthy! I wonder if they are as nice on the inside as they look on the outside :-)

Years ago when Knots Landing was on TV I chased Ted Shackleford into an airport restroom……..of course I was very young now I wonder what did I ever see in him :-)

Melissa K December 14, 2012 at 6:04 AM

Fun series!!! My favorite Hollywood crush has got to be Daniel Craig so very sexy from the accent,rugged face,deep eyes, to the smokin’ body. It is just the right mix for me.

Abby December 14, 2012 at 6:08 AM

Hmmmm….Damon from Vampire Diaries??? Or Ryan Gosling?? Too hard to choose from! Vampire Diaries or The Notebook? After I watched the Notebook I knew right then that Ryan was going to be one of my favorite actors of all time :) . Still can’t choose between them! Lol

Kelly Watson December 14, 2012 at 6:32 AM

Just can’t pick one! DIfferent Boys in different settings make me swoon! :-)

Nancy Parken December 14, 2012 at 6:34 AM

There are not many books that you recomment that I have not read, but these are two.

DeeDee December 14, 2012 at 6:53 AM

Nicole December 14, 2012 at 7:18 AM

Edward Norton.. I think he’s an amazing actor. I love just about every movie that has him in it. :) Thanks for the giveaway!!

Karen December 14, 2012 at 7:19 AM

Wow..too many years, too many crushes to name lol. I did meet George Wendt who played Norm on Cheers. My daughter was in a play that he also was in it. He was very nice and fun to talk to.
thanks for the chance to win!

Nikki December 14, 2012 at 7:20 AM

Okay, I’ve met Gene Wilder on New Year’s Eve. While he may not have been SWOON worthy, he was Willy Wonka for goodness sakes (as well as many other hilarious characters) so I have to admit, that I might have scared him when I threw myself at him and told him he was my FAVORITE actor of all time, but more in “Oh my God! You have a chocolate factory!” way. As for my actor crush? Gerard Butler….not best singer for Phantom, but boy, he rocked that mask…..We were at the movies the other night and I was standing with his new movie poster behind me, and my 8 year old daughter (whom I have apparently trained very well) said, “Look Mommy, it’s your eye candy!” Um, and now that Adam Levine will be in a movie…..he will probably be my everything crush! Sigh….

Batool Hosain December 14, 2012 at 7:21 AM

I loved the first and but still haven’t been able to read the second!!
Hmm my current obsession is probably Bradley Cooper – that man looks good in everything!! <3

Tammie December 14, 2012 at 7:28 AM

I’ve not read these yet, so I would really like to win these. I have a few favorite actors….love Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Johnny depp.

Nicole Lowery December 14, 2012 at 7:32 AM

Would love to win these!!! Know he isn’t an actor but Adam Levine is my fav at the moment!!!!

Maria Malaveci December 14, 2012 at 7:34 AM

My favorite actor is Alexander Skarsgard who stars in True Blood. Oh boy, do I need to say anymore? Have you seen him in this role? ***SIGH and Swoon

Thanks for the giveaway!

Terry December 14, 2012 at 7:41 AM

Ian Somerhalder–those eyes…, Ryan Reynolds, have you seen those abs…… I can’t pick just one…

Virginia December 14, 2012 at 7:41 AM

Actor: Colin O’Donoghue – yum

I loved Rob Lowe and still do. Sexy, smart, family guy

I love both books and would love to have the set. I read LU1 before it was picked up by S&S. I sat patiently waited for LU2 and was so excited that the release date would b after 8/31 due to the signing of Ms Reber to S&S. I plan to meet her in Boson in March

I’d love the books because I feel like I read them b4 they were popular. I posted old cover on my FB page and told people to read. Believable story, great friendship, great plot twists. Love love love
Have them cast in my head for the movie – I get a walk on of course

Virginia December 14, 2012 at 7:43 AM

Swoon worthy. Love Mike the bodyguard

Kirsten December 14, 2012 at 7:46 AM

Ok I really swoon when I see Alex O’Loughlin or Adam Levine. I don’t know why, but I just love them both. Well, I do know why… shirtless they are HOT! :)

What about you Maryse???

Kim Jones December 14, 2012 at 7:56 AM

What a great opportunity to win two fantastic books.

Andrea December 14, 2012 at 7:58 AM

Channing Tatum has to be my latest swoon.

Shantel December 14, 2012 at 8:02 AM

George Clooney!!

Christina December 14, 2012 at 8:02 AM

It’s too hard to pick just one! I would have to say Richard Gere and Blair Underwood are two of my favs and they are both sexy (even though they could both be my dad!) I feel out of the circle I have not read this book yet!

Dannette December 14, 2012 at 8:07 AM

ooooo me please. these have been on my TBR for the longest.
I swoon for almost evey good looking actor, no favorites.

Diana S December 14, 2012 at 8:16 AM

One of my favorite actors would be Matt Damon.

Angie H. December 14, 2012 at 8:20 AM

Ian Somerhalder from Vampire diaries. Love the bad boys! Loved these books!

Kerri December 14, 2012 at 8:21 AM

I was a flight attendant for several years out of LA and saw many famous people on the plane. Some of them were, OJ Simpson, Christina Applegate, Bon Jovi, Magic Johnson, Eric Estrada ( Remember CHIPS?), lists goes on but one of my most memorable was a girl actually- Dolly Parton. She was so great! She gave us make up tips about how we can keep ourselves looking young and then she said most important is to be beautiful inside. She was as sweet as I imagined she would be. Read both these books and would love the copies!

Aimee Dennis December 14, 2012 at 8:24 AM

OMG!! I would so love this for Christmas. Three of my favorite actors are Brendan Fraser, Ryan Reynolds and Keanu Reeves. I am a sucker for dimples and silly (or as my mother says so ‘stupid’ it’s funny) comedy. That is why Brendan and Ryan, for sure, are right up my alley. I also have crushed on Keanu for quite some time now…not his Bill and Teds adventure time frame but afterwards when he roughed up a bit. One of my all time favorites….Lake House. *sigh*

Marlena Fein December 14, 2012 at 8:24 AM

My current actor crush is Ian Somerhalder also. His eyes just get me every time. I didn’t like him at first in TVD but he grew on me and then he got that snarky attitude I love so much and I was hooked!

I worked in casinos so I have actually met quite a few famous people (no good stories lol) such as: Michael Jordan, Mike Ditka, Donald Trump, lots of football players, Celine Dion’s husband, Renee…the list goes on. None of them have stuck out to me however. I did meet my favorite band every. OAR (of a revolution) and was on cloud nine for months!

Thanks so much for yet another great giveaway!

Merry Christmas,
Marlena

Jamie-lee M. December 14, 2012 at 8:27 AM

The actor I have a crush on is Ryan gosling!!hope to win:)

Karen December 14, 2012 at 8:28 AM

Channing Tatum! I know I’m a sucker for a man with a body – but can’t help it! Loved him before Magic Mike and even more after!

Andrea11 December 14, 2012 at 8:31 AM

I am in love with LL COOL J always!!!! Those sexy dimples get me every time!!! Channing Tatum is a runner up, a man that can dance will always have a special place in my heart <3

Happy Holidays!

Brandy December 14, 2012 at 8:32 AM

Ryan Gosling, Channing Tatum, or Ryan Reynolds. Any of them would do. :) ))

julie n. December 14, 2012 at 8:37 AM

I have never meet anyone famous but my movie star crush is Robert Pattinson. I know I am happily married with 2 kids but still. :) . He is too cute for words!

Cassandra T. December 14, 2012 at 8:41 AM

Ian Somerhalder (Damon from Vampire Diaries)! So sexy and passionate about animal rights. Gotta love an animal lover.

Tanya B December 14, 2012 at 8:48 AM

WOW!!! Lots of HOT men in the posts above and I have to agree!!! Alex Skarsgard, Tom Hardy, the Ryans, Channing, ect. Keanu has always been my ‘guilty pleasure’. But let me add Charlie Hunnam from ‘Sons of Anarchy’ to the list. Really LOVE the biker torn between good and bad!!!!

Carrie Klein December 14, 2012 at 8:53 AM

I am in love with Johnny Depp!

Kellie December 14, 2012 at 8:53 AM

Well I often swoon over Keith Urban…not an actor, but a fabulous musician. He does amazing things with a guitar! Plus he is Australian so you could listen to him speak the phone book and swoon. I have met him twice and found him just as dreamy in person. Smelled yummy too.

Tara B December 14, 2012 at 8:54 AM

Channing Tatum…yummy <3

Tanya B December 14, 2012 at 8:58 AM

OOPS…I forgot to add my husband to that list of men! He not famous but makes me ‘SWOON’ too. : )

Tracy December 14, 2012 at 9:05 AM

Alex O’Louglin. Yummy!

Jennifer December 14, 2012 at 9:08 AM

Can I just say ditto to most of the guys listed in the comments?:) My latest star crush is Anson Mount from the tv show Hell On Wheels. I also have a little crush on the guy from Fast n’ Loud, he has the best hair and goatee thingie:) Ryan Gosling, Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson,definitely!

Charo December 14, 2012 at 9:09 AM

Jake Gyllenhaal. . . I used to think he was ok, then saw him in Men vs Wild in 2011 and fell in love with him. He seems like he is so down to earth and funny. Also he has a hot body.

kayna December 14, 2012 at 9:15 AM

My favorite actor is Brad Pitt, he’s amazing and so freaking gorgeous.

Ana T. December 14, 2012 at 9:20 AM

I met Kevin Spacey at a Starbucks, several days in a row. It was pretty early and before my coffee so I didn’t recognize him but had this feeling of knowing him from somewhere, so I said “Hi”on the first day and he said “Hi” back. By the end of the week a coworker saw me greeting him and asked me how come I knew him and that’s when I realized who he was… After that week I saw him there only a couple times and I always said hi and he said hi back, nothing more :)

Rhonda Beyer December 14, 2012 at 9:25 AM

Ahhh my swoon worthy actor has to be Dwayne the Rock Johnson very closely followed by Ryan Renolds. Thanks for the giveaway.

jamie December 14, 2012 at 9:27 AM

I would love to have these books, with that said I really like Dermot Mulroney, he is very handsome and a great actor!!;)

Dana December 14, 2012 at 9:28 AM

Ryan Reynolds would be my crush and has been since his Van Wilder days!!

Lisa Martz December 14, 2012 at 9:31 AM

I’m a Channing Tatum girl for sure!!! Hot doesn’t even come close to describing him. I fell hard for Mr. Tatum when I saw Dear John. His performance in Magic Mike just sealed the deal. YUMMY!!!

Scoti Miles December 14, 2012 at 9:34 AM

Finishing up reading Book 1 and I can’t wait until Book 2!

Sarah B. December 14, 2012 at 9:39 AM

Paul Walker, yum! Who doesn’t like a guy that can drive a car fast and furious like he does? ;) He’s totally swoon worthy…

Heidi December 14, 2012 at 9:43 AM

I would love these books, I haven’t read them yet. They’re on my “to read” list.

LucyLou December 14, 2012 at 9:43 AM

Amanda December 14, 2012 at 9:45 AM

Mmmmmm my fav actor is hands down Joe Manganiello! Ever since he graced my tv screen as Alcide in True Blood he had my attention! I LOVE your website Maryse! Thank you!

Wendy December 14, 2012 at 9:51 AM

I loved book 1 but have not read book 2!

stephanie vincent December 14, 2012 at 9:52 AM

Sandy J. Long December 14, 2012 at 9:53 AM

Cassi December 14, 2012 at 9:55 AM

I loved these books! My Hollywood crush has to be Robert Pattinson, he seems very intense and he comes to mind in a lot of books I read!

Kelli December 14, 2012 at 9:56 AM

Christian Bale. . . .

JoAnn December 14, 2012 at 10:01 AM

Happy Holidays! Actor crush would be Joe Manganiello, those abs…

Stacey December 14, 2012 at 10:01 AM

Ian Somerhalder, definitely!

Emily December 14, 2012 at 10:10 AM

Channing Tatum – ugh love him!

Beth W December 14, 2012 at 10:19 AM

Um – yeah. I still have a major crush on Harrison Ford – I would love to go on an adventure with Indiana Jones – NO doubt about it.. (and, wouldn’t he make an amazing vampire for the Midnight Breed?) Happy Holidays everybody!

Brandy R December 14, 2012 at 10:31 AM

DEBBIE December 14, 2012 at 10:40 AM

me me – pick me

sabrina blanco December 14, 2012 at 10:44 AM

Woohhooo

Jen December 14, 2012 at 10:53 AM

Hmm . . . I don’t really know about the crush part so much. I’m not a swooner! ha ha!

I do have a good story about meeting actors though . . . when I was a sophomore in high school I won a trip to LA to watch a taping of Married with Children and to eat dinner with the cast and crew. I wasn’t 18 yet so the prize was in my mom’s name and we went together. We had a blast! At dinner we sat across from Christina Applegate and her mom and I sat right next to Jefferson and Marcy was on his other side. Everyone was there. Ed O’Niel is from Ohio, as are we, so he spent a lot of time talking to us. Fun trip!

So not a swooning story, but a good one!

Rachel Frank December 14, 2012 at 10:55 AM

Love these books!

I have two and a movie with both of them just came out!
My two are Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson.

Chris Hemsworth I feel in love with in Thor.

Josh Hutcherson was adorable when he was younger and now thy he’s older, hot!

Laura P December 14, 2012 at 11:00 AM

My celeb crush is Rob Pattinson. It’s his hands, more specifically his long fingers (sigh) and that he’s a great musician. I wish he’d do some music, he really is quite gifted.
I once sat right in front of Mike Shanahan, Redskins coach, in church. Not quite the same as meeting a star but still amazing to turn around greet him!

heather December 14, 2012 at 11:06 AM

I really think Alex Pettyfer is really cute and could see him as Fifty. I have heard he has an attitude issue though, so that isn’t very attractive. I of course love Robert Pattinson and Ryan Gosling too.
I read the first book in this series and really liked it, i wasn’t sure what the second bookd would really have to add so I am curious.

B Palmer December 14, 2012 at 11:16 AM

Brad Pitt!!! He is aging like a fine wine…yummo!

lisa December 14, 2012 at 11:17 AM

i would have to say ryan gosling. the notebook is still my favorite love movie!

Marcia December 14, 2012 at 11:19 AM

My favorite actor is Mathew McConaughey. I first swooned over him in “A Time to Kill”. His accent and his demeanor did it for me. ;)

Talena Ann December 14, 2012 at 11:20 AM

Ohhh…I wanna read these!!!

Laura K December 14, 2012 at 11:21 AM

Channing Tatum!! I wish I could say I had met him, but only in my dreams :)

Theresa December 14, 2012 at 11:25 AM

Channing & Ryan!!!
Channing in Step Up and Ryan in Crazy, Stupid, Love!
Pick me! I loved both of these books! :)

Devin December 14, 2012 at 11:33 AM

pick me pick meeeee!

Teri December 14, 2012 at 11:34 AM

I hope I win, I hope I win! (lol) Well, this is my very 1st post here :)
Favorite actor… hmmm, I’m more the Jason Stratham type I think… then again I will never forget Jason Lewis as Smith in SATC (yummmy)!

Ok, who have I met? Fun question! I’ve met & see fairly often Bo Derek, Cheryl Ladd, Rona Barritt, Jenny Garth.. who else… guys: have seen in the store every now & again, Matt LeBlanc, Noah Wyle, Doc Sevrensen… A few others but hey I haven’t had my coffee yet :)

Jessica December 14, 2012 at 11:40 AM

Hey. My favorite actor is Emile Hirsch!!!!! Mmmmmmm Especially in the movie Alpha Dog!!!!! He was just delicious. and I have met my fair share of actors since I live in New York, but none that really phase me.

Erica Mullins December 14, 2012 at 11:49 AM

Mine is Robert Pattinson. He is so amazing. When he went to her room in the first Twilight movie and kissed her I thought I was going to die. It was a little awkward with my husband sitting next to me but he was hot and he was gorgeous in the first Twilight movie!

Leslie Marquez December 14, 2012 at 11:50 AM

Too many to count, but Channing Tatum, or Chris Hemsworth would be awesome!! Only in my dreams!

Karen December 14, 2012 at 11:53 AM

Would love to read these!

Sweets December 14, 2012 at 11:55 AM

I haven’t read these yet so I would love to win them!
I love Channing Tatum cuz he’s drop dead gorgeous….but I have to say, I’m also crushin on Shia LeBouf since the 1st Transformers….Please don’t tell anybody, but I swear he’s my guilty pleasure!

Becky B. December 14, 2012 at 11:58 AM

Loved the first book, have yet to read book 2.

Leilani December 14, 2012 at 12:02 PM

Can’t seem to narrow it down to one….my favorite actors are Paul Walker and Chris Pine. They’re both got that bad boy appeal, beautiful eyes and gorgeous bodies … Down right lickable! **yummy**

I worked in the travel industry and was able to meet quite a few actors/actresses singers and athletes…. ie: Jennifer Love Hewitt, Hellen Hunt, Richard Marx, and Troy Aikman to name a few. And although it was just a little chit chat…how you doing? What are your vacation plans? these people were very personable and friendly, and I enjoyed working there because my co-workers and I never knew who would be vacationing to Hawaii.

salli December 14, 2012 at 12:09 PM

It was totally rob pattinson in twilight. I was just so in love with the books and it was awesome to see the words come to life

Tasha December 14, 2012 at 12:13 PM

I loved both of these books – A great giveaway!

Bradley Cooper is my favorite. I read an article that he loves and adopts dogs………….I am very passionate about the Humane Society and have a soft spot for dogs specifically…… so that along with his good looks and charm makes him my all time fav. We even have a nickname for him in our house…….we call him “B Coop.” Ha. :)

Karen H December 14, 2012 at 12:14 PM

My favorite actor that I thought was beyond sexy was Robert Redford-and I’m showing my age, I know! I have met several famous people, but the most memorable is Peter Yarrow of Peter Paul and Mary. He is such a really nice man. A bunch of us were talking to him after a concert and he offered to have all of us join him at supper -and that after talking with us for over an hour.

Natasha December 14, 2012 at 12:24 PM

Chris Hemsworth and Joe Manganiello are my favorites, I don’t think an explanation is needed lol.

renee December 14, 2012 at 12:29 PM

please please please

Liene December 14, 2012 at 12:31 PM

Don’t have a current favorite actor – we watch very little tv because there is just very little time. But please count me in, what free time I do have I spend with my nose in a book!

Donna December 14, 2012 at 12:35 PM

Channing Tatum is my favorite right now too!

I saw Magic Mike 3 times! I know, pathetic right!

Kim December 14, 2012 at 12:40 PM

Sweet!!! I would totally hug those books all day long LOL.. I have to say Bradley Cooper for me I just adore his smile :)

Terri December 14, 2012 at 12:52 PM

My favorite actor is Gerard Butler. What’s not to love, right? I picture him as my lead in many books, especially those written by English authors. He’s handsome, rugged, seems outgoing, great accent and is still single. I girl can dream can’t she? Haven’t met him yet, however, he is my gimme. So, if I ever meet him, goodbye hubby, hello Gerry!

Cherie December 14, 2012 at 12:57 PM

How on earth can anyone have just one? That’s like asking which is your favorite book? It’s an impossible question to answer! So, anyone with abs to die for and an awesome happy trail makes my fav list (as long as the face equals the abs in awesomeness!!

Tanya Hinson December 14, 2012 at 1:21 PM

Ian Somerhalder…is there anything sexier than a man who has perfected the *smirk* that we read about in almost every romance novel?! I say no! Vampire Diaries is my thursday temptation and the hubby knows that to change the channel or even suggest to change the channel is the end of life as he knows it! #totalpantydrop

Dawn Bush December 14, 2012 at 1:25 PM

I’m just thinking back to a time when posters from Teen Beat and Tiger Beat wallpapered my walls…my first star crush (he’s still hot today!) was Rob Lowe! About Last Night was the movie he starred in with Demi Moore…dating myself? Ha! I suppose so, but, man he has aged well! It’s the eyes…they get me all.the.time!
(Would love to have this set! Thanks for offering this giveaway!)

Sheri December 14, 2012 at 1:40 PM

Never read these books…would love to have copies! Let’s see…favorite actor is Robert Pattinson though I am thoroughly ticked at him right now for getting back with the cheater-girl.;o)

Stephanie December 14, 2012 at 1:49 PM

Two my favorite books just love them:)

Tricia Edwards December 14, 2012 at 1:56 PM

johnny depp and clive owen….I also love Bones and JZB. They are famous right?? I have met john voight and Robert Duvall. Poor Robert was stuck in a hallway at my old job with us due to a Tornado Warning.

Stephanie D December 14, 2012 at 1:59 PM

I would have to say my celebrity crush right now would be Chris O’Donnell from NCIS LA….love his smile :) I met Lennox Lewis (professional boxer) years ago during my honeymoon. My husband and I had gone to the Poconos and he was training at the resort for an upcoming title match. My dad is a big boxing fan so I had to go watch him train and try to get an autograph. It was awesome to watch him train, afterwards I pushed my was through all these big men to the front and said “Mr. Lewis….could I please get your autograph?” Don’t you know he came right over to me (he was REALLY tall) looked down at me and said “you sure can” and then my husband took a picture of the two of us! What a great guy….BTW he won that title match!

Tonya hubbard December 14, 2012 at 2:06 PM

Favorite actor hmmmmm…. Channing tatum yeah…. Well more reasons than one but omg he’s just so pretty to look at!! Lol

Melissa B December 14, 2012 at 2:17 PM

My crush is Channing. The man has got the moves!!!! I could watch him for days mmmmmm

Dawn Detkowski December 14, 2012 at 2:44 PM

I haven’t read either of these yet but REALLY want to so PLEASE pick me! As far as celebrity crushes go…I honestly do not hae one! The last time I had a crush on a celebrity was way back when I was in junior high school and, at the time, I though I was in love with Clint Eastwood! LOL! As far as meeting any celebrities…I remember briefly meeting Darius Rucker from Hootie and the Blowfish at a party when I was about 19-20 but it wasn’t a long conversation. We were basically just introduced and said “hello” to each other and then he had to move on circulating. Other than that…I’m not sure if everybody would qualify them as celebrities but I met Paul Sr., Mikey, and Paulie Jr. from the Discovery Channel show “American Chopper” at a motorcycle rally in Milwaukee. I can’t remember if we met any celebrities when we went to Sturgis motorcycle rally (I think so but can’t remember who) because that was longer ago and I have a problem with my memory due to my disabilities plus I had an awful migraine (& had forgotten to pack my Imitrex) for two of the days. LOL.

Mandy December 14, 2012 at 2:53 PM

Gerard Butler……need I say more.

Heather December 14, 2012 at 2:56 PM

I did read these books already and I absolutely loved loved loved them!!!! AMAZING!!!!!!

heather December 14, 2012 at 3:10 PM

Thanks

kim cheeseman December 14, 2012 at 3:40 PM

Sarah December 14, 2012 at 3:45 PM

Me, Me, Me, Me Please. Love these books so much!!!

My husband is my first love…but my onscreen man is Ian Somerhalder. Such a yummy bad boy. :-p

Natalia December 14, 2012 at 3:51 PM

I love, love Adam Levine! He is so hot, that bad boy look drives me insane. Every time I see his face or hear his music my whole world turns into a happy place.

Bobbie December 14, 2012 at 3:59 PM

I so so so want to win these :D !!!!!!

Patty December 14, 2012 at 4:11 PM

Natalia December 14, 2012 at 4:17 PM

I looooooove Adam Levine!!!. He is so hot, that bad boy look drives me insane.

Jocelyn S. December 14, 2012 at 4:28 PM

Leonardo DiCaprio, in Titanic:’( one of my favorite movies. Leonardo DiCaprio was an amazing actor and totally made me fall in love with his character Jack!!

Jessica H December 14, 2012 at 4:30 PM

Freddie Prince Jr. When I first saw him in She’s All That I fell in love with him. Unfortunately I have never met anyone famous.

Diane Y December 14, 2012 at 5:25 PM

hmmm… I think Ian Somerhalder not that he is my favorite actor, but I can definitely see him in that role!

Megan Hansen December 14, 2012 at 5:50 PM

I love me some Ian Somerhalder!

Laura December 14, 2012 at 6:03 PM

Two of my favorite books!! Would love to own these! So, whose my favorite hottie in Hollywood…Ryan Reynolds! Sexy and funny :) )

Susan Tarbutton December 14, 2012 at 6:31 PM

Loved these books!!!!

Shawn Proveaux December 14, 2012 at 7:27 PM

I fell in love with Tatum Channing in Dear John. Oh, and Elvis Presley in his movies make me swoon too!!

Susie December 14, 2012 at 7:37 PM

Well hmmm picking a favorite is hard!! I do love Gerard Butler, and one of my goals is to collect all of his movies. But I have to admit I didn’t like him until AFTER 300 even with his hot body and all, at the time the beard just didn’t do it for me (it doesn’t anymore lol). So I think it was in P.S. I Love You where I really started to like him (and his accent, Mmm Scottish!!) ;-) And I didn’t even know who he was when I bought Phantom of the Opera lol. I think he may be one of the actors that can do no bad movies in my eyes ’cause I read about someone hating The Bounty Hunter but I liked it lol. I can’t wait to see his new movies coming out!!

Last summer I went to visit my brother in Houston ’cause he just moved there and we went to a local outdoor theater to watch a Shakespeare comedy and I didn’t recognize him until someone pointed him out but Brett Cullen was there and I got my pic taken with him. He played the congressman that got kidnapped by Cat Woman on the Dark Knight Rises. And me and my bro had just seen the movie the night before lol. The pic is on my facebook page ;-) He also had a small role on Lost.

Thanks for the giveaway!!

Lynne December 14, 2012 at 7:52 PM

I’m not sure I have a favorite actor, but I know I would love to see Ian Somerhalder play Christian!!

Nicole December 14, 2012 at 7:59 PM

Channing Tatum…. He can act and dance!!!

Megan December 14, 2012 at 8:08 PM

I read Love Unscripted, but I haven’t read Love Unrehearsed. I would LOVE to read it!

Megan December 14, 2012 at 8:10 PM

I don’t really have a favorite actor. I just Warm Bodies last night and Nicholas Hoult was really cute (even as a zombie).

Molly F. December 14, 2012 at 8:30 PM

I don’t really have a favorite actor that I completely swoon over. It’s weird, I know. I have met some famous people, though. Not any actors, but professional basketball and baseball players, a few Nascar drivers, and musicians. They were all interesting, but my stories, sadly, are in no way comparable to this series.

diane December 14, 2012 at 8:38 PM

I don’t really have a favorite actor but maybe brad Pitt.

Yolanda Gomez December 14, 2012 at 8:46 PM

Never met anyone famous but I would still love these books…

Minha (BrazGirl) December 14, 2012 at 8:56 PM

I would love these books, they are on my wish list! Cutest actor is Robert Pattinson, I don’t know what it is about him…. He’s just too yummy !!! :)

Brandi Bradford December 14, 2012 at 9:22 PM

My favorite actor is Clint Eastwood! I loved him in all the old westerns!

Sheri Zee December 14, 2012 at 10:25 PM

My favorite actor is the very one that I just know Tina Reber based Ryan on! Robert Pattinson! Oh dear lord, he is just PERFECT!

cicely December 14, 2012 at 10:27 PM

Zac Efron. JUST UGH!!!

Nicole December 15, 2012 at 11:08 AM

Ian Somerholder…. Mmmmm
