Hello again to all you Hot, Cute, Girly Geeks–Cara here. How have you been?
I’d just like to start by thanking you all for the positive feedback you kindly gave on my last post. I was both shocked and excited by it and couldn’t have been happier. So thank you! I hope y’all enjoy my future posts too!
So last night (well 2 a.m. this morning if you want to be specific), I finished reading Sweet Evil by the talented Windy Higgins. The book was amazing and I hadn’t been able to put it down from the start. Whether this was due to the enthralling story line or the believable and greatly written characters, I don’t know—I’m going to guess it was a splendid mixture of both! But the main catch in the book was Kaidan Rowe. Hot, sexy, and swoon-worthy in every way, this guy had me squealing and making me feel how Anna (the leading female protagonist) must have too!
Now don’t get me wrong, like I said in my last post, I fall in love with all the guys I read about in books. However the extent to which I crush varies and depending on the impact they make—they need to make a hot and sexy impression in order to stick in my mind!—I just casually move onto the next book. Maybe the majority of the boys I read about all just have so much in common that they’re practically all the same, but occasionally you do get the odd one who will make you wish they were real and yours to kiss all the time! The ones that you still think about months after you’ve finished the book!
Needless to say this is the impression that Kaidan has left me with, and as I read his and Anna’s story, I found his ways reminded me of one very gorgeous lad who has captured my heart as well: Patch Cipriano.
These bad boys try and give the impression of being all hardened and impenetrable to love, not revealing their feelings and acting as though their flirting and rare kindness is not to be taken to heart, but really that is their true self and I know we all love them for it. I like to see guys pretend that they’re not falling in love, but all the while knowing they are—it’s written in their expressions, the way they steal a look at the girl they like, how they smile, and behave unusual to their friends when they’re around. It makes me all giddy inside to know that their shell has been cracked by that one special person. How sweet!
Unless you haven’t read Hush, Hush or Sweet Evil, or any book where a boy has had this same effect on you, then I can’t explain it any better for you to understand. You’ll have to read it to know what I mean. The feelings you are overwhelmed with are amazing—but that kind of makes me sad as their source is fictional and they . . . sadly don’t exist.
But seen as, to me at least, both Patch and Kaidan are these rare exceptions where a boy so unreal (in a good way of course) has been written, it makes me think that it’s a very hard task to accomplish; creating such a sexy bad-ass lad who actually has the heart and soul of the most wonderful male on earth—otherwise there would be so many more of them, right? So they must be very complex indeed.
This being the case, I have to wonder what it takes to bring such a boy to life on paper. There must be some special magic involved, otherwise how would the entire world come to love them and why aren’t there more?! I don’t know what it is, I suppose it’s just the talent and craft of the writer, but I now find it a personal mission of mine to write a boy like this of my own, no matter what it takes.
What I’d like to know from all of you hot geeks is whether these are the traits you find appealing as well? Are these the kind of boys you like to read about? What makes your heart race, your lips turn up, your eyes widen with emotion? Let me know, I’d love to hear your answers.
It’s just occurred to me now that it might in fact be that the guy goes against his natural instincts or his purposes that has brought him into the story. In Sweet Evil, Kaidan was the Neph of Lust, and he found it difficult to control his temptations when with Anna, but did—to an extent, hehe. Patch was supposed to make Nora his sacrifice in Hush, Hush to become a human, but fell in love with her instead and couldn’t go through with it. Yum!
It’s going to take a lot of hard work to make a smoking hot guy like them but I’m sure gonna try. I just have to come up with a whole new book idea first and see what happens from there.
Thanks for being great and reading this post, I sure hope you enjoyed it.
Have a fantastic and geeky weekend, all!
