NOW GIVE ME SOME CANDY!
Greetings romance lovers, and welcome to Week Five of our Scorcher Blog Tour. We’ve had outstanding posts the last four weeks, and in a quandary to meet the high standards set in place by my fellow tour mates, I struggled a bit over which topic would keep the tour rolling at a heady pace. And then it hit me. Of course...
What could be better to inspire the muse? In my opinion, not much. So, I set out in research mode (it was grueling, but SOMEONE had to do it), happily scanning the internet for half-naked men, when I stumbled upon a startling revelation. Turns out, most of the Man Candy I found wasn’t really all that interesting to me…or inspiring. And it took me a while to figure out why. Don’t get me wrong – I admire a ribbed set of abs and thick, corded arms as much as the next girl (and many of those pictures are forthwith contained in this traveling post), but I hit two snags while deciding which pictures to choose.
Snag #1 – most of the men I found looked less than half my age. Sad, but true. Not that I consider myself “old” by any means, but some of these guys looked fresh out of high school. Much to my chagrin, I’ve recently come to the distressing conclusion I am NOT a cougar. And believe me, I tried. I mean, I really, really tried. *insert muffled sob*
Snag #2 – of the photos I found, most the men looked so serious I couldn’t get past the constipation on their faces. No doubt they were gorgeous, but I like a guy who smiles – and looks good doing it. He has to use his whole face, show me those pearly whites and preferably sport a few crinkles around his eyes. Ahem…
So, during this and the next five posts, you will see several men I found, a little about them and why they top my list for Man Candy inspiration. Will all of them meet “romance novel” critieria? You be the judge.
Without further ado…I give you…The Wizard of Oz
JUST KIDDING! HAHAHAHA! Had ya going there for a minute, didn’t I?
Okay, start over…without further ado, I give you…
Best known for his roles in The A-Team, The Hangover and most recently Limitless, Bradley heads up my Man Candy list for his amazing smile and sparkling blue eyes (and let’s face it, that devilish five o’clock shadow doesn’t hurt either). In fact, when I Googled Bradley Cooper on the internet, in nearly every single photo I found he was smiling. He’s my grin-winner, and I’m sorry, but he’s just too damn cute. Have a slice of this!
Pa-DOW! Bradley looks like he’d be a blast to hang out with, doesn’t he? And if a guy’s got the goods but is nothing but a big grouch, what’s the point?
Dark haired or blond-tipped, he’s dreamy, and looks ready to cuddle. And the pièce de résistance…brace yourself…
Ohhh yeah! Bradley can laugh all he wants. Bring it! LOVE HIM!
