M is for McCoy

My plan for the A - Z Challenge is to write every post as if it were a diary entry by a character from my WIP. Today's post comes from Leah Walker.

**
I haven't had a boyfriend in five years, but I used that time to grow out of my bad boy phase. I really did grow out of it.

Then I met McCoy. I actually hate him. The idea of having a fling with someone whose criteria for a date is boobs and a pulse makes me feel sick.

But he is so ridiculously hot. I don't usually like men with enormous muscles - I'm small, I'm scared of getting squished - but it's not really about the muscles. It's his face. His eyes are ice blue, and at times they can look really cold, except when he's smiling. Then they sparkle (not like Edward Cullen, might I add).

His lips infuriate me. His smirk makes me want to punch him, really hard, in the face. But his lips are incredible. They're full, and they look soft and when he's talking, I can't stop looking at them, even though the words he says are disgusting, filled with innuendo and completely inappropriate  for the workplace.

I've decided that it's okay to admit he's good-looking. Pretending I don't see it at all makes every day harder because I don't like lying. Not to anyone, but especially not to myself.

So. I'm saying it right here. Radleigh McCoy is hotter than hell in mid-August during a heatwave. But he's still an arse. And that overrides hotness every time.

  1. I love the way Leah describes McMcoy, you get a perfect mental image of him and he really does sound very hot!

    Let's hope her determination to avoid him holds out! :D

  2. Just a few lines of text but I am already wondering: What will happen next? Can he win her over?
    I am visiting for the A-Z blog challenge.

  3. LOL.. I love it... I love how she so does not want to admit to herself that she has the hots for him. Her descriptions of him are PERFECT!

  9. I should override it. Never understood why some girls date guys that are total jerks.

  11. I'm totally with Alex here. (Not with him, with him... but like agree.. oi) If dude's a jerk, doesn't matter how hot he is.

    I tell that to my hubby all the time when he's being a dick. ;)

  17. My favorite love stories tend to be the ones where the characters don't get along at first then fall in love by the end.

  18. Somehow I don't quite believe Leah when she says being an arse overrides hotness. She might think that now but can she resist?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Don't get sucked in, Leah! At least she is under no illusions and knows he is an arse, though, so she could only blame herself if her heart gets broken. Hmm, is that mean?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thatta girl, Leah. Keep that last sentence in mind. Hold onto that feeling. ...she's not going to hold onto the feeling, is she?

  21. His lips infuriate me! What a great line!
