Eye Candy Friday: Matt Erikkson from Stay

Posted July 14, 2017 by Rowena in Features | 3 Comments

This week’s eye candy goes to Matt Erikkson from Stay by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy. This book was such a great book and for me, my enjoyment was in large part because of the hero, Matt. He’s a single father trying to do well in his career as a hockey goalie but still be a relevant part of his kids life. His ex-wife has the girls for most of the time but he makes the most of the time that he does have the girls and he gets it all done with the help of his virtual assistant, Hailey.

I think what I liked most about Matt was that he was so…normal. I mean, sure he’s a famous hockey player but he’s also just a man. A father. An ex-husband. He wasn’t this overwhelmingly alpha male that has to dominate everyone in his life. He was manly but he was also a simple man’s man who tried to keep his promises to his kids and flirt with his assistant as well.

He was also sweet and charming and I absolutely adored him. I’m really digging his Single Dad vibes and ugh, I just loved him to pieces.

This is my Mark Erikkson:

Memorable Quotes

“He’s already one up on me. He’s been on the receiving end of a couple of Hottie’s kisses.

I’ve got nothing. It’s the first time I’ve ever been jealous of my dog.”

Matty Cakes had a crush on his assistant long before he met her and I thought that was too cute.

“Maybe I can convince you to kiss me again. I’m right here, honey. Come get me.”

*happy sigh* Can I have my own Matty?

“She has no idea how much this means to me. I’ve spent the last year believing myself unfit to be anyone’s partner. And maybe it’s true. But by spending her day with me – and her night – Hailey lets me believe I’m not a lost cause, that my messy life is worth sharing.”

Yessss!!! He was so worthy of love!

Eye Candy Friday: Mateo Torres from All Played Out

This week’s Eye Candy Friday hero is such a memorable New Adult hero and I’ve already spotlighted his book on Book Binge but I didn’t think that was enough so I’m featuring him here.

When we first meet Torres, he’s this fun-loving, goofy football player that is all about playing. He’s never really serious and he’s always joking around but you can tell that underneath it all, he’s a good guy. Sure, he’s a playboy and he’s not very picky about his bed partners but he’s not out to hurt anyone. It was so much fun for me to get to know him personally in this book and I just absolutely adored him. I loved seeing him fall for the one girl that wasn’t all that jazzed about him. It made for such a fun romance and you guys should definitely read his book if you haven’t already. 🙂

Here’s who I pictured when reading Mateo’s book so this is who I see as Mateo in my head.

Hot, right? To me, Ryan is the perfect Torres.

Memorable Quote

I mentioned this on Book Binge but I’m going to stand by what I said there. This book is filled with reasons you should be reading this series but this list rates pretty high for the main reason you should read it and that’s why I’m sharing it here on this blog. This is why I absolutely loved Torres. The way that he loved Nell was just so good. It’s great. Here it is.

“Ways to Prove that you love Nell De Luca

1. Tell her. Every day. Three times a day. As many times as it takes.

2. Never choose anything else over her. Not football. Not your own stubbornness. Nothing.

3. Be there whether she wants to go skinny-dipping or wants to study. Make sure she knows that she’s the adventure, not anything else.

4. Always tell her how amazing her food is (okay . . . that one is partly for you, too, because it means you get to keep eating her food).

5. Give her the best sex of her life (also works out pretty well for you).

6. Teach her whatever she wants to know, and learn from her, too. She’s a fucking genius.

7. Tell her she’s a fucking genius. All the time. When she doubts it and when she doesn’t. Just tell her.

8. Never walk away after a fight. Don’t. Fucking. Do it.

9. Prove you love her (preferably in bed, but that’s optional) once a day. Three times a day. As many times as it takes.

10. Be worthy of her. Not by playing football or pretending to be something you’re not. By being the man she makes you feel like you are. Strong and smart and kind and so damn lucky to have her.”

This was me after reading this book:

If you want to look like that, read this book! Until next week…enjoy!! 🙂

Eye Candy Friday: Adam Hauptman from the Mercy Thompson Series

Posted May 5, 2017 by Rowena in Features | 4 Comments

Adam Hauptman is Mercy Thompson’s man in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. He’s the Alpha of the local werewolf pack and he’s a pretty one. He’s seriously Mister Hot Stuff and he’s my favorite right now.

“Mine,” he said.

Adam’s eyes narrowed. “I don’t think so. She is mine.”

It would have been flattering, I thought, except that at least one of them was talking about dinner and I wasn’t certain about the other.”

*swoon*
