Contest: win a copy of Toni Blake's "One Reckless Summer"
The perfect daughter. The perfect prom queen. The perfect wife. Jenny Tolliver’s been the good girl all her life, and it’s gotten her nowhere. Now that her marriage has been busted up by her cheating ex, she’s decided it’s time to regroup and rediscover herself. This summer she’s headed back to her hometown of Destiny, Ohio, to the very lakeshore cottage where she grew up, to figure out what life holds in store for her next.

She never dreamed the answer would be Mick Brody, Destiny’s #1 hellraiser. He comes from the wrong side of the tracks (or in his case, the lake), and he’s landed in hot water more times than he can count. He’s exactly the kind of guy Jenny’s always kept her distance from … but soon the good girl and the bad boy are caught in a raw heat that’s out of control. Too bad Mick’s got a secret that threatens to tear them apart and ruin Jenny’s perfectly, passionately reckless summer …

**Thanx again to the awesome Toni Blake for stopping by yesterday and holding down the fort. It was a pleasure chatting with her, as always :) Toni, you're invited back anytime!**

Okay folks, it's been awhile since I've had a contest, and what better opportunity than with Toni Blake's latest release? It's a contemporary, and as you can tell, it's about a good girl who can't stay away from the bad boy. A favorite storyline of mine, probably because I am that good girl who totally gets the appeal of the bad boy. You might not end up with the bad boy, but then again, maybe you do. I like to believe that anyway ;)

Contest will end noon CST on Friday, May 22nd. And will help me choose my winner. So my question for you is....

Who's your favorite bad boy from a book, t.v., or movie,

& what makes him so irresistible?

  3. My favorite bad boy :Nick Allegrezza from Rachel Gibson's Truly Madly Yours... dark good looks, lot of attitude and sexy name... sigh

  5. My favorite bad boy is Nip/Tuck's Christian Troy. Of course he has got the looks as he is played by Julian McMahon but the character is dark, bordering on cruel and a womanizer but he has a scarred past and has those moments where he completely redeems himself and does the right thing with heart and emotion.


  6. Good Morning Stacy!

    Thank you for the great contest.

    Favorite bad boy? Hmmmm That is a tough one for me. Maybe Vic from Beth Kery's "Wicked Burn"?

    He was such a rough around the edges, brilliant character who brought the heroine back to emotional life in that novel. I don't know if he can be termed a "bad boy" or not but I still get the ::shivers:: when I think of 'Vic'...

    Thank you again
    Warm Regards

  7. Richard Armitage as Sir Guy from Robin Hood, why, well all that leather and his stern looks makes me melt

  8. What An Awesome interview! Lubs Toni's work.

    My Favorite bad boy, oh wow I have many *g*
    I would have to pick..
    Sam Watson from Lori Foster

  10. Awesome giveaway! Don't enter me Stacy because I already have it. But I posted about this so others will have the chance to give Toni's awesome stories a shot!!

  11. I just finished Rachel Gibson's True Love and Other Diasters and I loved Ty Savage's as a bad boy. A hard nosed arrogant in your face hockey player that is brought down by woman. Love that.

  12. Oh my gosh...LOVE Rhage from the J.R. Ward idea why he's my fav but by far...whenever I see him in the books I wiggle! :D Sooo hot!

  13. Hey Stacy!

    Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) from Friday Night Lights. He's definitely a bad boy that all the girls fall for. But he has a heart of gold, that's for sure. :P

  14. Great contest and I'd love a chance to win this book since I loved her previous book Letters To A Secret Lover.
    The first person who came to mind with your question was Sawyer from Lost. What makes him so appealing is first off - he's hawter than hawt. But what makes his so intriguing is while he's definitely a bad boy, every so often there is a glimpse of a hero within him. And it's those glimpses that make him such a riveting character. And in general bad boys are just so much more interesting than a good boy *wicked grin*

  15. Very cool contest!

    I love a bad boy and have so many favorites! I'm currently re-reading Standing In the Shadows by Shannon McKenna and I fell in love with Connor McCloud the first time I read the book and I love him even more this time around!! :)

  16. I <3 Dexter from the Showtime Series. He's a serial killer sure..but he's just tryin' to make the world a better place.

    When he smiles it makes me happy. :) Very bad boy but super hot!

  17. There are too many bad boys which to choose from, so I'll just have to say someone from my recent reads... Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain from Lord of Scoundrels (by Loretta Chase). It was so wonderful to read how he reacted when he met Jessica, the heroine, and realized that she didn't fear him...

  18. Lisa Kleypas' Sebastian from Devil in Winter. He is a rogue who is redeemed by his love for Evie.

  19. My favorite bad boy is Zsadist from the Black Dagger Brotherhood.
    I'm really looking forward to Toni's book too. The world can never have enough bad boys

  20. the hero from For the Love of Grace by Gina Gray.

  21. Rehvenge from the Black Dagger Brotherhood. While his exterior motives and dress suggests the baddest of the bad, he really does have the biggest heart.

    Great contest!

    :) VampFanGirl

  22. Mine would be Zarek from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunters. He was so misunderstood - and grew up to be a tormented hero. I loved his dark side that covered up a very vulnerable heart. I could read his story over and over.

  23. Sounds great. My favorite would either be Erik from the True Blood tv show or Jericho Barrons from the Fever series by Moning.

  24. Hi Stacy,

    I love reading Toni's books the ones I can find at my local library.

    I have two favroite bad boys Zarek from Kenyon's Darkhunter series and Zsadist from Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series because they are both tortured, mysterious and sexy characters.

  25. I'd say Zsadist from Black Dagger Brotherhood because he's the kind of guy you would be scared of - until you hear him sing.

  26. I love reading about sexy bad boys. One of my favorites is Ranger from the Stephanie Plum series. Tall, dark and deadly with a hint of mystery...what's not to like?

  27. Saint from London's Perfect Scoundrel is my favorite bad boy. He is wicked and lovable at the same time. He enjoys being scandalous, but he changes after he falls in love with Evie.

  28. Zsadist for JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood is one of my favorite bad boys. I also love Roarke from JD Robb's In Death series, but he is more of a reformed bad boy...although he still has his moments.

  29. I have to narrow it down to 1 bad boy? Too difficult! lol

    There are so many but ONE of my fav bad boys would be Colin Ames Beaumont from Meljean Brooks Guardian series. That man is BAD! lol

  30. Oh there are so many. LOL
    A favorite is Anthony Mallory from Johanna lindsey's Tender Rebel. When the Roslyn is accidentally trapped in Anthony's town house. He tells her why deny yourself the pleasure. It was hot

  31. My favorite bad boy from tv is Sawyer from "Lost." He likes to make fun of people and give them nicknames and you never quite know what he's up to, but he's pretty tender when he's with Kate.

  32. Why is it I always get asked what is obviously an easy question like that and my mind goes completely blank! How is that possible? Hmmm, bad boys *thinks*

    The one that has sprung to mind is Dimitri from Nalini Singh's Angels' Blood! He just oozes bad boy vibes *grin*

    And thank you Stacy!

  33. Thanks for the chance to win! I have this on my wishlist!

  34. so many
    thanks for contest please count me in

    colin farrel is hot baddy

  35. There are a lot of good ones that I've read and one I did enjoy a lot was Delacourt from A Woman of Virtue by Liz Carlyle.

  36. My favorite bad boy is Judd Nelson from the Breakfast Club.

  37. Barrons for KMM Fever series - there's one hot bad boy!

    Please enter me!

    Dottie :)

  38. Ranger fron Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series!

  39. I mentioned down in the other post discovering Toni Blake's books with RED DIARY. He was a great bad boy! Very bad boy. I recently read a bad boy of Gideon in Sharie Kohler's Lycan series, MARKED BY MOONLIGHT. Loved him! So many bad boys in books to like that I often go with the one I just read!

  40. This was a tough one for me! I guess I'd have to go with Julian Sark from Alias (played by David Anders). As for what makes him irresistible, I'd say it's a combination of actions, hotness (is that a word? LOL), and the accent!
