Alex O'Loughlin - Boyfriend of the Week via Sharla Lovelace

Today I'm rerunning a boyfriend of the week, but with good reason. When Sharla stopped by orginally, her book, The Reason is You , had just come out and I hadn't read it yet. But now that I have, I needed to see this post again, lol.

Seriously, if you haven't read her book yet, check it out. I know it sounds like I'm just pimping a friend, but I don't rave about books I don't genuinely like. I couldn't put this one down and I loved every minute of the journey. This is the beauty of meeting writers. This is probably not a book I would've picked up on my own since I wouldn't have thought romantic women's fiction (with a paranormal twist) would've been my thing. But I'm SO glad I did. I can't wait for Sharla's next book. I'm officially a fan girl.

Now over to Sharla...

Hi and I’m so glad to be here!  

When she told me I could do a Boyfriend of the Week and talk about who I pictured as my main guy for THE REASON IS YOU, it was shameful how quickly I jumped on that.  There are actually two main men in the story, but back in the beginning…wayyyyy back in the seed of an idea that the story was at first….there was only one fact I knew for sure.  That my main character Dani Shane had a mad love for a man she’d known her whole life and could never touch…because he was a ghost.  And in my head after watching season after season of Moonlight and the sexiest vampire I’d ever known…always wearing black… that all-black-wearing ghost had to be Alex O’Loughlin.

And his character’s name became...ahem…Alex.  Um, yeah, but his last name is Stone so…yanno.  Nobody can prove I was thinking of him when I wrote it.  And I trust y’all.  You wouldn’t sell me out, right?  Or then maybe you should, and Alex O’Loughlin would read about it, and decide he needed to read that book, and then decide he needed to play that part, and go talk to directors about optioning the script, and then…and then…he’d call me at home and say he needed to come talk to me in person about it…  

Okay, I need to quit.  I’m starting to hyperventilate and my dog’s looking at me funny.  And so is my husband.  *glancing sideways*

So here you go…some Alex eye candy.  With commentary from me.

So there you go!  Now you can all rejoice with me in the ecstasy that is Alex O’Loughlin.  Yum.  What do you think?

Thank you, Roni!

ABOUT SHARLA: Sharla once hunted for crab in a Honduran jungle, and explored an unknown cave on her belly through a rabbit hole. Not in the same night.  Now, she lives in Southeast Texas by the Neches River with her family, an old lady dog, and 19 cockatiels--the birds actually have their own house outside. The Reason is You is her debut novel, and her second book, BEFORE AND EVER SINCE, is due out in November.

When she's not writing, doing the day job, or doing the family thing, she's stalking her Twitter feed (way too much).

Sharla can be found at her website www.sharlalovelace.com, as well as… Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads under ‘sharlalovelace’.

 

THE REASON IS YOU Blurb:

In the small river town of Bethany, Dani Shane never fit in. Being different pushed her to the fringes of society, and even leaving town for two decades didn't stop the talk. Now, with her sixteen year-old daughter Riley in tow, Dani is back in Bethany looking for a fresh start. Too bad her plans for staying under the radar are about to be thrown out the window.

Mischievous and sexy, Dani's old friend Alex still has the power to rock her world, but there's a big obstacle standing in their way—Alex has been dead for forty years. With a ghost popping up at inopportune moments and sparking conversations with her teenage daughter, Dani scrambles to find solid ground and get a grip—both on her sanity and her heart.

Now don't you all wanna go out and buy Sharla's book? If nothing else but to picture this guy for an entire novel? - Roni
