Suit Up Sunday: Joe Manganiello Revisited

alcide suit
Joe Manganiello in a Suit. Drool.

So, summer is upon us and my television schedule is almost complete. Some of y’all know I’m not a big TV watcher. The exception is Teen Wolf and True Blood. Only one more week before the new season of True Blood premiers and I can’t wait! Why? Well, a couple reasons really. This guy is the first.

Oh man. He does *nice* things to a suit, doesn’t he? He could do nice things to me too….

I just want to look at him. Admire the pretty, pretty muscles. I wouldn’t mind the opportunity to pet him. Can someone out there set that up for me?

I want to lick right….there.


I’ll wait…

Okay, so since I’ll probably be waiting for a while, I’ll tell ya that this sexy fella is such a great scowly werewolf character that he often inspires my own paranormal characters. Seriously. He’s inspiring.


I just…I can’t even.

I heart him. And in one week, I will get to see him on True Blood again.

Suit Up Sunday: Tyler Hoechlin (AKA Derek Hale AKA the “erek” in Sterek)

Derek Hale
Exhibit A: Tyler Hoechlin in a Suit

Only ONE MORE SLEEP until Teen Wolf Season 3 and I get another Derek Hale fix. And really, who can resist the scowly alpha werewolf? Not me. I mean, first of all, see exhibit A for what the man looks like in a suit. The word sinful comes to mind. A few other words come to mind too, if I’m honest.

Bloody Hale he’s hot.

Seriously…he’s even hot all beat up and bloody. How is this even fair? I mean, I’d love to say that I watch Teen Wolf for the plot…but I’d be lying.

Stiles and Derek
I wish he’d put me against a wall. 

Okay, not totally lying, especially if the plot involves Derek and Stiles. *whistles innocently* I cannot deny my obsession with Sterek. It has reached new levels of fangirlishness. Heck, I thought I was obsessed with Spander….nope. Well, I was obsessed with Spander, don’t get me wrong, but this whole Sterek thing…Yeah. I got it bad!

But I digress. Back to the hotness that is Tyler/Derek. Yeah. This. For serious real. Just sit. Watch. Try not to lick the screen.

And if the above isn’t enough, how about this wicked, wicked smile?


So if you’re looking for some wonderful deliciousness, check out Derek on Teen Wolf. Or just take a look at the Sterek fanfic. Ya know, in case you’re into that kind of thing. *g*

Suit Up Sunday: Dylan O’Brien (AKA Stiles Stilinski, AKA the ‘ST’ in Sterek)

Guess what?! It’s only 8 more sleeps until Teen Wolf Season 3!! Weee! (Pardon me while I have a massive fangirl moment.) June 3 is the big day, so I thought I’d do a little Suit Up post with one of my all-time favorite TV characters.

What is it about the adorkable Stiles Stilinski that keeps me coming back for more? Well, let’s see: he’s cute, sarcastic, super smart, funny as hell, and a great friend.

That not enough for you? How about this: STEREK

This would be Sterek. Go on. Google it.

For those of you who don’t follow Teen Wolf in crazy fangirl fashion (and I’m not sure why you wouldn’t, but okay…) Sterek is the slash pairing of Stiles and Derek Hale. *swoons*

I’m sure no one is surprised that Poppy the Paranormal Girl loves the werewolf. No one is, right? *crickets* That’s what I figured.

But really, it’s all about the Stiles for me. I absolutely love the character and Dylan O’Brien is such a charmer!

If you don’t believe me, see this adorable gif as Exhibit A. How cute is he?!?! Doing the little dance with the wolf hat on! Awwww!!!!

I can’t wait to see what mischief Stiles gets up to this season! I’ve been trying to avoid the spoiler/rumor mill, but man it’s hard! I really love him!

So if you haven’t watched the first two seasons yet, go for it! You’ve got 8 days! Go on! Shoo now. Watch Stiles and report back to me!

Suit Up Sunday: Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch)

Now last week on Suit Up Sunday, I gushed over the amazing Robert Downey, Jr. As awesome as RDJ was as Sherlock, I’ve got to confess that Benedict Cumberbatch has won me over.

What is it about this guy that draws me in? Okay, so the accent is incredible. The eyes are swoon-worthy. He’s got that scowly thing I seem to love more than life itself. And let’s face it, the man can rock a suit like nobody’s business. Shouldn’t take much more than that, right?

But then you have to add John Watson into the mix! My slashy fangirl heart goes boom. I just…I can’t even. I’ve watched both series multiple times already. All the innuendo, the cute little wink-wink, nudge-nudges that we get, and I find myself…well, I’m sure you can imagine exactly what I do where these two are concerned!

Oh, and have I mentioned that Benedict Cumberbatch can rock the blond? *swoon*

Seriously, I think the man is trying to kill me dead. I can’t take it. I just want to stare. Repeatedly. To him and John Watson. *nods*


Suit Up Sunday: Robert Downey, Jr.

So I haven’t done a Suit Up Sunday post in a really long time, and suddenly find myself inspired to start it back up. Why? Because I saw this image of Robert Downey, Jr. and it made me whimper a little. Gah, a man in a suit just melts my butter!

I mean really…look at that smile? And in a suit?? I really just can’t stand it. I think I’ll sit here and stare for a while.

I’m still staring. Don’t mind me.

But that’s not all. How about this one?

Seriously, he’s not even smiling and I’m ready to climb him like a tree. *happy sigh*

Hmm…do I prefer RDJ scruffy or clean-shaven? Oh, who am I kidding, I just prefer him!

And then there’s this:

How is he even sexy with his scowly taking his glasses off self? It doesn’t even make sense to me, but there it is.

But perhaps my favorite Robert Downey, Jr. image is from this lovely little gif. Sassy RDJ for the win!

So which  do you prefer?

Suit Up Sunday: John Barrowman

I can’t believe I’ve been posting men in suits for a few months and haven’t gotten around to posting John Barrowman. He’s not only completely yummy, but he also has that delcious smirk that I love so well.

And look at that smile. And those cheekbones. And those eyes.

Seriously? It’s not fair how handsome this man is.

You can’t really talk about John Barrowman these days without mentioning his character on Torchwood, Captain Jack.

Yeah, I’ll own it. I’m a total Janto fan girl. (That’s Jack/Ianto for those of you who’ve never seen the show.)

Jack…Ianto…seriously amazing.

And then there’s this…he sings too. Talk about a triple threat.

Whenever I’m writing a particularly heartbreaking scene (one of which appears in my next release, Body Magic), I turn to this song.

Get a hanky handy, cause it breaks my heart every time I hear it.

Hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday!
