Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! What would Valentine's Day be without a good romantic comedy? I'm a total sucker for a cute movie with a predictably happy ending. That's why I'm giving away a DVD of Fool's Gold. I think that we can all agree that Matthew McConaughey is the king of rom com's. Plus, he's beyond sexy! Fool's Gold is probably my favorite movie of his as I'm also a sucker for anything involving treasure.


Okay, so we all agree that Matt is seriously sexy (if you do not feel this way, please have your eyes checked immediately!) But I have to admit I'm a sucker for the not-so-obvious sexy things that guys do. Like unloading the dishwasher. Playing with a baby. Painting your toenails. In my third book, SPRING BREAKUP (which comes out MARCH 3!!!), Aspen's boyfriend, Rand, is always thinking of something sweet to do for her which translates to sexy in my book. I'm also giving away an ARC of Spring Breakup today. For those of you who don't know what an ARC is. It is just a basic copy of the book, that can still contain some small errors. It doesn't have a fancy glossy cover but if you win it, you get to know what happens before anyone else can buy their copy at the bookstore. So ARC's are kind of cool.

If you want to have a chance to win an ARC of Spring Breakup and a DVD of Fool's Gold, leave me a comment about what makes a guy sexy to you (keep it clean!).


If you want some more Matthew, here's a clip of his new movie, The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past coming out in May. It looks super cute. Enjoy!



Good luck and Happy Valentine's Day!

xo,
Steph

OMG, I didn't know a thing about GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST, but I absolutely loved the trailer! I can't wait to see it!

As far as what's sexy in a man to me...it's unexpected bouts of thoughtfulness. Helping me when I don't ask, making a meal because he knows I like it, remembering something trivial I said. That makes my heart turn over. =)

what makes a guy sexy to me? when he's being ultra sweet and he's not afraid to show how he feels :)

Woohoo an ARC is the best Vday present ever!

What makes a guy sexy in my eyes? A sense of humor and some talent, esp in music. I'd love it more if he's dorkily sweet :D

i think it's sexy when a guy makes me laugh and is my best friend

What about men who paint their OWN toenails? ;)

MF said...

This is going to make me sound kinda shallow...but...I'll go with the basic tall, dark and hot package.

I also find it sexy when a guy is really, really awesome at something. It doesn't matter what it is. It could be something athletic like surfing or technical like rewiring the electrical system of a house. If he's good at something, I'm sold.

I totally agree about a guy being sexy when playing with a baby! Also, a guy who can play music. I don't know why, but if he can play the guitar or piano, it is just really hot.

The sexiest thing about a guy is when he doesn’t try. ANY guy can try. But when a guy is naturally funny, sincere, romantic, adorable, exciting, spontaneous, and caring, that’s when he’s hot. He has a smile that melts you and he’s not flashing it to impress, he’s really smiling. Or when he hugs you on a bad day, not to win you over, but he does it without thinking.

The guys who think they’re hot are usually TRYING too much.

when he cooks and then brings you buttered bread without you having to ask.

LOL, Chuck!

A sexy guy is... one that gets me! The sense of humor and sweet thoughtfulness are an added bonus ;)

Matthew grew up 20 minutes from me. He went to high school with my sister in law. My cousin had a blind date with him, and stood him up. She kicked herself for years about that one. :)

Sexy? When my husband carries a sleeping child to bed. When he gets up with the kids so I can sleep. Cooking breakfast in just pj bottoms. The way he rarely seems to notice other women. (Really, I often point pretty women out to him.)
Sexy is when he asks me on a date when we've been married for 12 years and he takes me to see a chick flick.
Sexy is him saying, "No baby, go write. I know you'll do well. You novel gets better every time I read it." And he actually reads them and offers suggestions. (I write YA Urban Fantasy.)
Sexy is when he's been on the road for a few days, comes in after midnight, exhausted, and rubs my back.
My husband is very sexy!

I think it's sexy when a guy gives flowers for no reason. That and just holding your hand.

Can't I just say... "Michael Weston" and be done with it? Cause I keep telling my husband that if he was ever a spy, he would probably be like that character!

I like when guys don't automatically agree with you about everything. Diferences are good!

It is all about confidence and a sense of humor. If a guy is confident enough to crack jokes and make me laugh he totally has me.

I like it when boys are a bit mysterious, but still very nice...


great prizes, by the way!

KP said...

guys who are good with kids.
guys who are good-looking, athletic, smart, funny, able to look good in anything, slightly scruffy, sometimes forgets his contacts and wears his glasses and looks really cute in them...

oh wait...did i just describe the guy i'm in likelikelike with?

Tracy said...

A guy that's sexy to me is one who can cook for me. I would so love a guy like that.

La Sirena said...

Intelligence is sexy! Give me a guy with brains please....oh and when he can laugh at himself because he's a being a dork!

For me it is when men do unexpected like Luke getting Becky's scarf for her (I couldn't help it. I just watched the Shopaholic movie today and loved it so it is on my mind right now!)

Llehn said...

I think a guy is sexy when he makes an effort to get along with your friends even if he doesn't necessarily like them because he knows it means a lot to you.

Swoons.

kaymf said...

Confidence has got to be one of the sexiest things in a guy.

TLB21671 said...

I think it is sexy when a guy is willing to put himself in a place & risk embarrassment to do something that might be uncomfortable or uncool just to impress you, making himself vulnerable for you. That shows me he loves me & nothing is sexier than that.

starberry said...

I think what makes a guy sexy is like when he remembers details. Like say you mention in passing to your boyfriend that you like your coffee a certain way and then the next morning he shows up with said coffee fixed the way you described, that's sexy. It also helps if said guy is intelligent and has a killer sense of humor as well,and is as loyal as can be, and of course there's always looks which are somewhat a factor.

Chelsea said...

OHOHOH! I want to win! I really want an ARC of Spring Breakup, and I've been wanting to see Fool's Gold forever. Who DOESN'T love a good rocom? (The one I like the most recently was My Best Friend's Girl.)

Anyway, sexy? Musicians. Bad boys. All that swoon-worthy stuff. But seriously? If they're sweet, it makes all the difference. But not TOO sweet. *mischievous grin*

Nikki said...

I think it is sexy when guys are really into something like all they want to do is rock climb or something. Just have some kind of passion.

Book Spot said...

I like guys that are sweet to their dogs :) and don't try to be cool about it.

Lori T said...

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past does look very good and I had not heard about it before now, either.

For me it is the little things that make a guy sexy...remembering things that I say that don't really seem important, making dinner when I don't feel like it, and just being willing to help out.

Hillary said...

Being a soccer player makes a guy sexy. Just look at David Beckham or Christiano Ronaldo. That's some serious hotness.

I think the most sexiest thing about a guy is his random acts of kindness. When he'll sweet talk you when you're feeling down (and you didn't even tell him you're down!), or when he cooks you something (even if he doesn't know how to cook. at all.) or when he just smiles at you every time he looks at you and says "I love you" randomly.

Looks are pretty minimal in comparison to the more important characteristics. These include intelligence, kindness, sense of humor, and shared interests (including the geeky ones.)
