Tempting Tuesday Wk 2: Some Girls Bite

Posted January 10, 2012 | 14 Comments


Whoo… it’s the 2nd week of Tempting Tuesday!  I’m so enjoying all of these characters.

Questions for Chapters 5-8
1. In what is a make you blush, steamy scene in the book- Chapter 5 has Ethan and Merit sharing a few hot moments after Merit’s hunger strikes…that is until Ethan becomes a total cad! What do you think of him so far? Strong, masterful vampire, conceited playboy…..lover boy in disguise?
Honestly, I wasn’t really feeling Ethan as much as I did in the previous chapters.  Besides that steamy scene with Merit, we see very little of him, so now the other guys who we did see a lot of are on my radar.  I think Ethan is probably a good guy, but he’s been a vampire for awhile and has lived a certain lifestyle for many years, so I’m not going to be too hard on him about his proposition to Merit.  He seems to be just as frustrated with the situation between them, and handled it how he thought was a good way.
2. Merit and Mallory begin some major training in these next few chapters, resulting in cool Katana Sword facts and Ninja moves. What is the most physically challenging or adrenaline fueled event/activity you have participated in?
Well… riding horses.  I used to do the whole eventing thing.. dressage, show jumping, and cross country.  I also showed western, and ran barrels.  All adrenaline fueled, especially since I love the more…. shall we say.. crazy horses.  lol.  I also took Tea Kwon Do for a couple years.
3. Mallory and Catcher have sparks so intense they almost fly off the page…..what do you think of this cozy couple? Did you like the insta-love between them? Do they add to the story?
They’re magical together!  Haha, I just had to say that.  I love them separately, but I haven’t completely fallen in love with them as a couple yet.  Personally, it didn’t seem like insta-love, but more of insta-infatuation.  It hasn’t been overbearing with them, so I don’t mind.
4. Let’s talk Bff’s….Mallory is hands down a terrific friend to Merit, the girls relationship is real, down to earth and fun….not to mention hysterical. What is your favorite memory or favorite thing to do with your bff? Feel free to share pics!
Oh, I love Merit and Mallory.  They’re like a modern day, supernatural Lavern and Shirley.  As for my bffs?   Some of the best memories are of when we’d be out and about, prior to family and kids, without a care in the world.  We weren’t exactly good girls, and did a lot of crazy things.  But some of my favorite memories are of the times we’d get in the car and decide to just drive.  Head towards the mountains with no map, no plans, just wanting to see where we’d end up.  Gooood times…
5. Things are starting to heat up in the mystery department…the set up at Red, Morgan’s flirty appearance…. Catchers vague answers……as correlation day gets closer for Merit do you think someone is out to get her…or maybe recruit her to another house? Or PS- feed her some more food…because goodnight this girl likes to eat!!
I suspect everyone for every reason at this point.  I’m very curious about what will happen at the correlation, though.  I’m liking Morgan a lot, but I get the feeling he might be up to something.  I honestly don’t know how Merit can trust anyone right now, except for Mallory and grandpa.

She eats like my son.  He is so naturally tall and skinny, but eats SO MUCH.  He eats 3 eggs, 5 sausage, oatmeal, and toast for breakfast.  It’s crazy, and I’m super jealous.

  1. So, another horse rider! Wow! You and Jenny amaze me.

    And I'm not feeling Ethan either. Maybe later, I mean I don't want to give up, but something about his is preventing me from even liking him.

    I remember taking random drives with the girlfriends, too. We always managed to narrowly avoid trouble. Fun times, indeed. 🙂

  2. “I think Ethan is probably a good guy, but he's been a vampire for awhile and has lived a certain lifestyle for many years, so I'm not going to be too hard on him about his proposition to Merit.”

    EXACTLY what I think! I called him a dumbass today, but I meant it in an affectionate manner 🙂 And I am with you on the insta-lust/infatuation thing.

    Go you with the horses – they always scared me a little after one bucked with me on him when I was little.

  3. Yay horses!!! I never did any eventing, I stuck to the small junior hunters, but I always loved going down to the Kentucky Horse Park and watching the Rolex event. So amazing. Do you have a picture of your horse? I'd love to see him or her! Also, I'm jealous of your son as well. I want to eat all that for breakfast and not gain a pound:)

  4. Ooh, horses! I've never been into horses at all, but there's something gorgeous and magical about them, that's for sure.

    In a way I kind of like that Ethan is so hard to read at first, because so often we're presented with this gorgeous perfect guy. Well Ethan is gorgeous, but he's definitely not perfect. He's so different from Merit, so it's interesting to see them try and communicate.

  5. @Wendy – so true. But I'd take being able to eat anything without gaining a pound over hot guys chasing me any day. lol

    @Missie – Haha narrowly avoiding trouble.. that's the best!

    @Heidi – Pfft.. yes, he gets that all the time, and heaven forbid he cook it himself. lol. I think grandpa and Jeff are my favorites right now

    @Linds – lol.. well he did act like a dumbass, so it was deserved.

    @Jenny – omg.. I'll have to go looking in my boxes of photos. I haven't had a horse in years, so all my pictures are from film cameras, no digital. I wish I had more pictures from shows and stuff. I know some were taken by my old riding instructor, but she's not around anymore. I know there were even some videos. Makes me kinda sad that I don't have those. I'll see what I have later

  6. We're having a lot of the same thoughts it sounds like. I don't know who to trust and I suspect everyone. But I don't know if it's wishful thinking, but I *think* Ethan is a good guy. However, I REALLY want Morgan to be a good guy but am feeling highly suspicious. I guess we'll have to see!

  7. Magical together! Good one! I should have thought of that!! Yeah, they're magical together and together and together. I got tired of them.

    I thought Ethan could have handled things better.
    That proposition to a newbie vampire was way out of line!!


  8. More awesome answers. I know what you mean, we don't see enough of Ethan, but I like what I see of him. I am so with you, age has a lot to do with it. I think he is good and he hides for a reason. Riding horse and Tae Kwon Do, man I am so jealous of all the answers I have been seeing. I needf to get out more LOL! I like them as a couple, there is plenty push and pull. I love the story about you and your friends, sounds very wild LOL! I am so with you, everyone is up to something. I agree, how she can trust anyone besides Mallory or grandpa is beyond me, but we will see. Awesome post, thank you hon 🙂

  10. Hey! Just found your blog. ( I'm new to this whole thing 🙂 I adore your graphics… did you do them yourself?
    Anyway, I've just signed up and look forward to more wise and helpful posts 🙂

  11. Yeah Ethan was missing a little bit in this chapters.
    Riding horses! That's awesome bb. I wish I was brave enough to try that.
    YES THAT! I loved Catcher and Mallory indivudally but they are missing that build up thing for the great romance. *le sigh*
