The Girly Book Blog Hop!!

I am honored to participate in the Girly Book Blog Hop!!!  The focus of this blog hop is Sensational Secondary Characters.  So, without further ado, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Evan Maxwell from my novel, Bouquet Toss!

When Daphne visits a psychic to find out if Mayson (her first love who has reappeared in her life) is the one, the psychic does not tell her what she wants to hear…but, she does tell Daphne that an immense amount of happiness awaits her with a tall man with dark hair and dark eyes.  When Daphne is re-introduced to the charming Evan, she instantly wonders if he is the man who Kim the psychic was referring to…..Could Evan be the one for Daphne?

Evan is charming and sarcastic, funny and soulful.  He loves music and live shows and loves to tease his friends.  He’s sexy, but conflicted, as he’s had his heart broken in the past.  He’s someone you want in your corner.  If you’re going through a hard time, he’ll have your back.  When reading reviews for Bouquet Toss, I was struck by how many women fell in love with the character of Evan.  His own story is currently in the works and should be released in the spring!

Synopsis of Bouquet Toss:
Ever since Daphne Harper graduated from college, all of her friends have fallen in love, become engaged and walked down the aisle. Be it a blessing or a curse, Daphne (a hopeless romantic and perpetual single girl) catches the bouquet at every single wedding she attends.

Daphne’s love life is a mess. Her first love, Mayson, haunts her heart and keeps her from pursuing happiness with any man who comes along. As she struggles to move on from the one who got away, Daphne wonders if she will ever break her curse and find her happily ever after.

  1. George Downes (played by Rupert Everett) in My Best Friend's Wedding is my favorite secondary movie character…he was a GREAT friend, one we all want, and he was funny and honest and loving!

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  2. I have to say Rebel Wilson from “What to expect when your expecting” and “Bridesmaids” that chick is hilarious!!! Everything that comes out of her mouth just craps me up and I love a good laugh 🙂

  3. Tough question. Well, my all time favorite move is Dirty Dancing. Baby's sister Lisa is an interesting character…and the sisters' relationship sure changes throughout the movie!

  4. I am not sure if there are any secondary characters in this movies but the women are all friends and needed to help each other thru life, Steel Magnolias!

  5. YOWSA Who is that hottie in the Evan picture? That will be a nice visual for readers of the book to have! Great news that Evan's getting his own book in 2013!

    I'm not entering the giveaway as I'm a fellow hopper and want to give other people the opportunity to win your great prizes, Melissa!

  6. What Tracie said (about Evan) 🙂 Bouquet Toss sounds fab – and I can relate! I've caught the bouquet several times but I've never been married. Perhaps because I'm so tall (could explain both the bouquet catching and the singlehood, haha)

  7. One of my favorite secondary characters is Old Man Harvey from Ann Charles Deadwood series. He really gives Violet Parker a run for her money and he becomes a great friend.

  8. In a movie, perhaps Jacob in Twilight – I mean, really, those abs!And when he got his hair cut – wow! Bouquet Toss sounds fab. I need to create a 36 hour day, so I can read all these fab books I am discovering today! Sooz

  9. Bouquet Toss sounds great! I can't wait to read it! 🙂
    I just saw the movie Something Borrowed and I loved Ethan much more than I did in the novel. (Maybe it has something to do with the adorable John Krasinski!)

  16. Ooh, Evan does sound fabulous. My favorite secondary at the moment is Hermione, though I've been going back and forth a little today. Congratulations on Evan's upcoming release. No need to enter me in the giveaway as I'm a fellow Hopper and want other visitors to win.
