After chatting with my Facebook girls about some of my favorites, it was pointed out that the majority of my selections featured model “Paul Marron”. What? No way!! I didn’t believe it. Each guy looked significantly different (despite being undeniably gorgeous). But upon further inspection, I started recognizing him in each. Those book people tricked me!!!Today, I have chosen to dedicate an entire post to this wooooo hooo HOT !!! *ahem* 😳 I mean… handsome, and obviously versatile cover model. Versatile? Yes, absolutely versatile. You see, once upon a time, I made a list of my top ten favorite (hottest!) book covers(featuring my favorite most handsome-est “heroes”). If I caught myself staring in awe at the cover, or purchasing a book because of the cover, well…it made my list.

Rock Hard (book#2 in the “Sinners On Tour” series).
Remember that jerk “Sed” I told you about in book#1 (you know… the singer)? Pretty much the hottest guy alive (*sigh* yes – alive. Still no vampires *shrug* 😉 ). Tall, hulking and sexy as anything. And. He has DIMPLES!!!! (my absolute downfall – dimples will win me over all the time). The guy who would use many groupies at a time, and throw ’em outta the bus when he was done? Well, maybe I take the “jerk” part back. Because… his heart. It was broken. Stupid Jessica!! Or so I thought.
Backstage Pass: Sinners on Tour
You know, sometimes, I need a break. Not from reading per se, but from a genre. My “breaks” never last long, because I’m a total vampire-addict. There’s just something about a dark and brooding hunky predator with superhuman strength, magical powers, and a secret need to redeem his soul (and his heart) that just does it for me. Specially when a mere human just “does it” for him. Love those!
But every once in awhile, a book catches my attention and despite it not being anywhere near the paranormal genre, I just have to read it. And while this book blog is paranormal in genre, sometimes, I can’t stop thinking about a book, and I just need to tell you why. In this case my book enthusiasm involves two books that are purely, purely guilty pleasures for me. Because…what is almost as hot as a sexy, yet unattainable paranormal being? That’s right. A rock star. Oh come on! You know it’s true. Vampires, Rock Stars… what’s the difference? And when I saw the premise of this series, I knew I had to read them!
I received a wonderful surprise in the mail today! My friend Sherry found a plethora of highly discounted books at her local Borders, and sent me something that she thought would look perfect in my upcoming “vampire room” (Book #1 in the Sweetblood series). By the way, I’m totally stealing her vampire room idea (she has a rocking room, that is very Black Dagger Brotherhood oriented). She sent me a book with a very HOT cover, and it will be proudly displayed. Thank you friend!! *hug*
Can I just say, that I love my blog? Because of this blog, I’ve found an outlet to express my excitement (or my melancholy) over books that I can’t stop thinking about. The blog has helped me organize my own book collection, my wishlists, and series reading order guides (so I don’t get confused halfway through a very important series). But, the best part of it, is that it allows me to connect with you guys! Other enthusiastic readers that have sent me their own reading suggestions, that have swooned over heroes and shamelessly squee’d over a book with me.
