Since we still have 2 weeks to go, I thought we could play a little game where you guys get to come inside my brain. Scary proposition right? Don’t worry, you won’t get lost. Not much up there but some old pictures of Jake Ryan and new shots of Michael Fassbender. Mmm, Fassbender…I digress.
I’m going to introduce you to the cast of WALLBANGER, and you get to try and figure out who I see in these roles. We’re gonna start with Simon, so let’s meet him finally, shall we?
He’s 28, travels the world as a photographer, makes a mean meatball, and has a killer sense of humor. Dark hair, wicked grin, tall and lean with speedbump abs. Outdoorsy and athletic, he’s got a soft spot (read: hard) for women of all shapes and sizes, and has a collection of old big band records.
To help you figure out who Simon is a bit, here’s a little taste of Simon and Caroline from WALLBANGER:
I shook my head at the sight of Simon in a black T-shirt and weathered jeans. He was in his stocking feet once again, and I marveled at how at ease he seemed in my kitchen.
I walked around the kitchen counter and picked up my rolling pin. “You know, I won’t think twice about whacking you over the head with this if you continue this borderline sexual harassment,” I warned, running my hand up and down the rolling pin suggestively.
“I’m gonna have to ask you not to do that if you’re serious about me peeling apples here,” he said, eyes widening.
“I never joke about pie, Simon.” I sprinkled a little more flour on the marble.
He was silent while he watched me pat out the pie crust, breathing through his mouth. “So, what are you gonna do with that?” he asked, his voice low.
“With this?” I asked, leaning over the board, and perhaps arching my back a little as I did.
“Mmm-hmm,” he replied.
“I’m gonna roll this crust out. See, like this?” I teased again, thrusting the pin back and forth over the dough, making sure I arched my back each time and the forward action pushed my girls together.
“Oh my,” he whispered, and I grinned naughtily at him.
“You gonna be okay over there, big guy? This is just the top crust, I still need to work on my bottom,” I said over my shoulder.
His hands clutched at the edge of the counter. “Apples. Apples. Gonna peel me some apples,” he told himself and turned away toward the colander filled with apples in the sink.
“Let me just get you the peeler,” I said, coming up behind him and pressing myself against him as I curled around his side to grab the vegetable peeler from the other sink. This was fun.
“Peeling apples, just peeling apples. Didn’t feel your boobs. No, no, not me,” he chanted as I openly laughed at him.
“Here, peel this,” I said, taking pity on him and removing myself from his cooking space. I might have sniffed his T-shirt.
“Did you just sniff me?” he asked, keeping himself turned away.
“I might have,” I admitted, going back to my rolling pin, which I squeezed mightily.
“I thought so.”
“Hey, if you can sniff, I can sniff,” I shot back, taking out my sexual frustration on a defenseless Pâte Brisée.
“Only fair. So how do I rate?”
“Good. Very good, actually. Downy?”
“Bounce. I lost my Downy ball,” he confessed.
I laughed, and we continued to roll and peel. Within 15 minutes, we had a bowlful of peeled and sliced apples, a perfectly rolled-out pie crust, and we’d both consumed our first glass of wine.
Knowing that I need my male leads to be as funny as they are sexy, which of these 3 hotties is MY WALLBANGER?
Is it Ryan Reynolds?
Is it Jensen Ackles?
Is it Bradley Cooper?
What say you folks? Leave a comment and send me a tweet. Who is MY WALLBANGER?
Last but most certainly not least, some of you may have seen my news about the new project I am working on; a whole new set of adventures for me. Partnering with actor Greg Grunberg, blogger Brittany Gibbons, and my bestie since college, actress Keili Lefkovitz, we are filming a new travel show centered around women in their 30′s hurtling towards their 40′s, who refuse to stop being silly. Zip lining, haunted house hunting, fish taco eating (ahem), the ladies and I will set out to show you how to travel with your girlfriends and have the best time ever, with Greg along for the ride to try to keep us out of trouble. Good luck with that Greg. Seriously, this Charlie is going to have his hands full with these 3 Angels.
We start filming in January, and we want YOU to be involved. YOU will get to help shape this new adventure. From its inception Have Boobs Will Travel (how great is that name?) has always been about getting out there and playing with our readers, viewers, listeners, all of you Nuts Girls out there that want to play hard and party even harder.
Details will be on their way soon, but I couldn’t wait to tell you about this exciting new project. Make sure you are following all of us on Twitter @greggrunberg, @brittanyherself, and @keili_lefkovitz. Look for #haveboobswilltravel to watch the insanity unfold.
WALLBANGER comes in 2 weeks, and I have never been more excited to share a book with you guys. I’m pinching myself right now I’m so happy, and I pinch hard btw. Just saying.
And if you haven’t already read my Redhead books, what are you waiting for?
