EVERNIGHT'S BOOK BOYFRIEND BLOG HOP~


Welcome to Evernight's first Book Boyfriend Blog Hop! Our heros can be strong and sexy, dark and dangerous, rebellious and reckless or cute and quirky. We love to fall in love with these irresistible heroes and Evernight Publishing has them all! The authors of Evernight invite you to a Speed Date challenge. Their cowboys, Doms, detectives, millionaires, royalty, doctors, vampires, soldiers, shifters, even steam-powered heroes are waiting to meet you on each author website. 50 heroes in 7 days! Are you up for the challenge? 

Pull up a chair and get to know every single one. I’d love to introduce you to my hero... 





So let's get busy! I wanted to showcase one of my Avery twins! More specifically, Dr. Cruz Avery from my current EP release, Dating Impossible.  Actor Julian McMahon was my inspiration for these bad boys! Here he is in a bit of a casual dress day, LOL. 

Here is Dr. Avery in his own words. I do so hope you enjoy the little scenario I've set up centering you in my speed dating piece and remember Dr. Cruz Avery when you vote for your favorite EP Book Boyfriend!

The ballroom of the Phoenician Grand Hotel is set with 50 tables all covered in white table cloths. Romantic centerpieces with fragrant gardenias, roses, and sprigs of green are placed around cinnamon and vanilla scented candles. Dr. Cruz Avery looks straight at you from across the speed dating table and pierces you with those deep gray eyes. The seductive heat burning deep within mixes with the heady aroma permeating the air and your heart rate drums out an erratic staccato beat against your rib cage.

You slowly exhale the breath caught in your throat and give the good doctor the once over. Dark hair neatly combed is still damp from a recent shower. His broad shoulders fill the dark navy blue Armani suit he wears with crisp white shirt and silver tie that has a bluish tint to the silk fabric. Chiseled, clean shaven jaw, straight nose, firm full sensual lips…tendrils of heat curl low in your belly and you smile.

This is your chance. You get to pick any man to date from this room. Pure feminine power surges and you give Dr. Avery a seductive smile of your own and introduce yourself. He holds out his hand and grasps your palm in a firm, but gentle grip. A teasing glint enters his eyes and he kisses the back of your hand. “Nice to make your acquaintance,” he says in a deep, sultry baritone that sends shivers up along your arm.

You give yourself a mental shake to clear it of all the images flashing in your mind of just where the good doctor could place his tongue and those lips… you only have five minutes girl…firmly reigning in your libido you ask the doctor the questions you’ve scribbled out ahead of time and this is how he responds:

1. What is your main priority when planning a date with your special girl? 

A slow grin spreads across his face.  "You," he says with a certainty that sends desire rippling across to your core and dampens your panties.  "Every woman is different, and like a fine wine, they are to be savored.  When I plan a date, you will know that every detail selected is designed to cater to your every fantasy."

Ummm...Okay...

2. Do tattoos and piercings turn you on? 

"Of course." A deep throaty chuckle escapes his full red lips.  "I especially like finding where you've placed them."

3. What is your favorite sexual position? 

A glint of wickedness enters those dark gray eyes and he scrubs his chin thoughtfully.  "I just plain love sex," he says.  "But it's not just the position...it's how you get there that is most fun!"

4. Chocolate or flowers? How do you make up after a fight? 

"That," Dr. Avery says, "definitely depends on the fight, wouldn't you say? But more importantly, I'd say my answer would be how I'd use the petals of a fragrant bouquet or some melted warm chocolate to pleasure you with when I beg for your forgiveness, wouldn't you agree?"

Holy Smokes! Those visions of the good doctor feathering my clit with soft petals or licking chocolate from me fill my head.  This man knows how to pleasure a woman and isn't afraid to use everything at his disposal... Definitely something to look forward to!

5. Seduce me in five words or less…


Again that delicious wicked glint enters his eyes and he winks.  "Foot rub baby?"

Ooooooohhhh! That does it! A man who has a foot fettish? I'm in!  Which book do I find you in?

Jeanette Platt said...

I love an Alpha male who is caring, cocky and can make me laugh... He also has to make even the strongest heroine feel safe and loved.

Kathleen Grieve said...

They are aren't they! Saw ya on fb! Good luck!

Kathleen Grieve said...

Yes. Stength and passion make for an irresistible combo!

Kathleen Grieve said...

Alpha seems very popular!

Kathleen Grieve said...

Another Alpha! Dr Avery's twin firefighter Jett Avery in Dating 911 is an Alpha and he does just that for nurse Roxanne Carter!

Meghan said...

The hero trait that I love the most is selflessness. In spite of everything, if the man is selfless it's unnervingly attractive. I also do love that alpha male air where they control anything and all other men shake in their wake.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Beckey said...

Thanks for sharing the great post (and for reminding me that I need to write a review of one your books I read last year but ... It's one of my goals this year to write more review of the books I read.)

Ok, sorry I got sidetracked to answer your question....

Brains, brawns, loyalty, passion, compassion, understanding, honesty, protective, courtesy and acceptance are just few qualities (traits) I like.
