Question of the Week: You just walked into your bedroom to find your favorite book boyfriend lying on your bed with three naughty gifts. Who is it and what are they?
When I read Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens, it immediately got added to my favorite books. Part of the reason must be credited to Kellan Kyle…ok, ok…he’s a huge reason for it, because I fell in love with another fictional character.
Yup…I admit it. Kellan Kyle immediately went on my fantasy boyfriends list. He’s uber hawt, and when I say that?!? I mean smokin’ HOT! Mkay?!? Melt-your-panties- HAWT! RAWR hot!
I like to have a concrete image of my fictional men so that when I
fantasize daydream read about them I have the proper visual in my head. I have to give credit where it’s due in this case. I was reading a review on Goodreads and Kara had thoughtfully provided the perfect image. I saw it, and BAM! THAT was my Kellan too. There was no name to go along with the gorgeous face, so I left her a comment, and asked if she knew his name…sadly she didn’t.
What to do?!? I went to twitter and asked for help in identifying this fabulous creature…and my friend Anya (site city) found out his name…Good heavens you’d have thought she gave me diamonds when she tweeted me his name. I might have screamed…just a little, and then I went image searching. So, thank you Kara and Anya ❤
Ryan Matthews has everything he ever wanted. Close to graduation from Harvard Medical School and on the verge of marrying his gorgeous and accomplished girlfriend, Julia Abbott, his dreams are about to come true.
Julia is on the fast track as a fashion editor for a big New York magazine. Ryan plans to join her there to complete his residency at a major trauma center and all of their sacrifice is finally at it’s end.
When tragedy strikes, their relationship is hurled into turmoil that leaves Ryan devastated as sorrow drives him to keep his distance, while Julia reaches out to find him again.
The second book of The Remembrance Trilogy follows Ryan and Julia’s quest to rebuild their stunning past; an incredibly beautiful and heart-breaking romance, full of passion, intensity and truly immeasurable love. You’ll be left spellbound, breathless and aching for more…
Julia Abbot and Ryan Matthews had been inseparable best friends since the moment they met. Each of them fight an internal battle, unwilling to risk their incredible friendship, but unable to quell their deep longing for the other. On the verge of Ryan’s departure to Harvard Medical School and Julia’s for a new job on the opposite coast, they are forced to face the undeniable truth of their deeper feelings and find themselves enthralled in a passion like neither has ever known.
The lovers are faced with forced separation, great distances and other people who try to sabotage their relationship as both of them work to build the shared future they both dream of. When their lives begin to finally gel, Julia is offered an opportunity that will jettison her career to new heights. In light the sacrifices she has made for him, Ryan can hardly deny her, but then something happens to completely change the course of their future. Will Julia choose the chance of a lifetime or the love of her life?
This is a story filled with the powerful and passionate connection we all dream of…a love so transcending, that even if the mind can’t remember, it’s impossible for the heart to forget.
The last lines of the publisher’s blurb define this story as “a love so transcending, that even if the mind can’t remember, it’s impossible for the heart to forget” and this is exactly how I feel about this book. It’s Ah-mazing with a capital A. Kahlen Aymes wrote an unforgettable novel, that I can’t stop thinking about, truly.
***UPDATE at the end of the post***
I’ve left the fantasy date poll up for almost a week so let’s see how you voted…
Your number one choice as my fantasy date is…*drum roll please*…
Gabriel Emerson…Ah… the sensual Professor…great choice ladies. He captured 36% of the total. There were a few days when Barrons held the lead but in the end…
Coming in at a very close second is Jericho Barrons with 33%
Christian Grey managed 16%
Dominic Grayson, Bones, and Matthew de Clairmont each received 3 1/3%
The choice for All of them got 4%
As for who you want to write these…this was a surprise for me to be honest…
39% of you would like to see a collaboration between the author and myself
31% want the author to write it
24% want me to do it
4% think Shari should do it
2% want anyone who is willing to do it. Clearly you want these posts to happen and ur not picky about who does the writing as long as it gets done 😉
A reminder…I said when I published the poll that I can’t guarantee that any of the authors will have a whit of interest in this at all… in either collaborating with me, or in writing it on their own. All I can do is ask nicely.
Please do not ask or badger any of the authors yourselves.
Thanks to everyone who voted…look for some fantasy date posts down the road…wish me luck 🙂
UPDATE…SR has offered to write it! Do you have any idea how happy and excited I am about this?!?…
OMG! I’m bouncing off the walls…fell out of my chair (for realz) excited!I of course accepted…well duh right?!?
Thank you SR! A gazillion, million thank yous…and erm…huge hugs 🙂
OK I’m off to try and calm down…fat chance…and have a celebratory drink or two…hmmm…I totes need some champagne for this…
I like to get ur feedback which is why I love it when you guyz leave comments. Sometimes tho I have a very specific question in mind…like now, so I’ll do a poll to help me with a decision regarding future posts. Today is one of those times. Pretty please take a minute to respond. Thanks!
Just to be clear these would be posts featuring a fantasy date with characters from books…and before you ask…they might be romantic or just friendly…nothing graphic tho 😉
I’ll let you know what the outcome was in a few days, and depending on the response I might do another poll with some specifics.
