I’ll tell you what–there are some mighty fine male specimens walking this planet. My husband is just one of many. 🙂 And thankfully, he doesn’t mind me appreciating others that make me go mmmm.
In fact, a lot of my characters are inspired by real life hotness. Which brings me to Joe Manganiello, my eye candy of the week. A fellow who has inspired a character or two in my novels. I’ll tell you why: Muscles. Height. Ruggedness. Confidence. A man who looks like he can tear some ish up but still be delicate if asked nicely.
I love writing characters like this. Reading books that describe characters like this. And watching movies that show characters like this. Which is why I’m really looking forward to the movie Magic Mike on June 29, 2012.
Oh, yeah. My girls and I have it on the calendar for a night out. There’s just too much hotness in this movie to pass up on: Channing Tatum, Mathew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, and Matt Bomer.
By the end of this movie, I should be ready to write five more books. One for each movie star.
“But Dicey, that’s a pretty shallow list. What about how a man is on the inside?”
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Later for all the inner qualities. Can’t I just be primal and appreciate physical appearances every once in a while?
Well, it’s my blog so…
*whispering to my fans* If you’ve read my novel Sleepy Willow’s Bonded Soul: The Narcoleptic Vampire Series Book #1, you may find it interesting to know that Joe was who I had in mind as I wrote Dario.
That is all.
