Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste – Boy Bands

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing former boy band members who went on to have careers of their own.

Myself and some of my friends are sharing our Want, Wed, and Waste choices from this week’s list:

Justin Timberlake from N Sync, Ricky Martin from Menudo, Mark Wahlberg from New Kids on the Block

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of KILLER LOVE – Boxed Set of Four Romantic Suspense titles ON SALE for 99¢ – Nothing to Fear, Truly Madly, Poetic Injustice, and Tears of the Wounded

Want: Mark Wahlberg- (I want Justin more, but I also want to marry him, so I’ll put Mark in the ‘Want’ slot.) I love his acting, and he’s sexy, especially when he plays a badass. He’s extremely talented, and just look at that body!

Wed: Justin Timberlake – Yes, I know he’s way too young for me (as are Ricky and Mark), but we’re playing make believe here. Justin is amazing!!! He’s the total package. He can sing, dance, act, and he’s SO funny. Also, I love what I know of him as a person. (I’ll just have to overlook his huge flaw of marrying Jessica Biel, ugh!) Anyway, he has a wonderful personality and a kind heart. I love the story about how he goaded Mila Kunis into attending an event with a soldier, then he himself accepted an invitation from a soldier too. How man celebrities would do that??? Sigh… Plus, he’s from Memphis and he does a tribute to Elvis in his concerts. His movies are fantastic…he’s just close to perfect! I also think it’s adorable the way he randomly shows up on Saturday Night Live and Jimmy Fallon’s talk show. And, their bro-mance is adorable too. Uhm, so, can you tell I like Justin????

Waste: Ricky Martin. I think he’s talented, but I only slightly like his music. He’s attractive, but doesn’t have the charisma that appeals to me. I’m afraid he just doesn’t do it for me. I do, however, admire his humanitarian efforts. But, when up against the other two, he definitely draws a ‘waste.’




Author Jessica E. Subject, author of Satin Sheets in Space – Will her fantasies become reality with two sexy aliens?  ON SALE for $0.99 through April 12 – Website http://jessicasubject.com


Want: Justin Timberlake – I’m not a huge fan, but I think he would be a lot of fun. 


Wed: Mark Wahlberg – He’s cute, and I love his family. Have you ever seen The Wahlbergers?


Waste: Ricky Martin – Sure, I listened to Menudo, but I wasn’t a big fan. He’s just at the bottom of the list of the three.




Qwilla Rain, author of Revealed: A Poker Posse Story     Loose Id link: http://www.loose-id.com/revealed-a-poker-posse-story.html  Blog/Website: http://authorqwilliarain.blogspot.com


Want–Ricky Martin. The man has some great music and he has some awesome moves. There’s the added bonus of his being bilingual so when he’s whispering the sweet nothings in my ear, he can do it in English and Spanish. I think it’s wonderful that he announced his homosexuality on his terms, makes him that much sexier. 


Wed–Mark Wahlberg. I would have put him in the Want category as well, but if I wed him, I get him all the time! He’s multi-talented and I enjoy that bad boy/lost soul vibe he’s got. His skills are amazing and the body!! Having access to that any time I want…oh yeah, wed. Definitely Wed! 


Waste–Justin Timberlake. Sorry but the boy does nothing for me. There are a few of his songs that I like, but for the most part he seems like all fluff and no substance. And staged costume failures with other singers so immature…



Now we’d like to hear from you….which of these Former Boy Band Guys would you Want, Wed, and Waste?

Thanks for playing!

Want, Wed, Waste: Cowboys

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing Actors in Cowboy Roles.

Myself and some of my friends are sharing our Want, Wed, and Waste choices from this week’s list:

Clint Eastwood, Tom Selleck OR Sam Elliott, Paul Newman as Butch Cassidy

clint Sam&Tom Paul-Newman-as-Butch-Cassidy

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of DEATH NOTICE (Northland Crime Chronicles, Book 1)  – A killer has something to say, and he’s using her obituary column to get his point across…

Want: Clint Eastwood. YUMMM….I have always found him exceptionally sexy. I admire his talent and brilliance so much. I am beyond amazed at how he keeps directing and starring in phenomenal movies, even in his eighties. And, yes, I would still ‘want’ him just like he is at this moment. STILL sexy!

Wed: Paul Newman. His blue eyes and sexy smile, sigh… I adored Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, among the other Paul Newman/Robert Redford movie pairings. Paul was gorgeous and from what I can gather, a terrific husband.

Waste: Sam and Tom. UGH…sooooo hard. But, unlike some of my fellow authors, I’m following the rules. SO, I must waste these two gorgeous, rugged, sexy cowboys. Now, before I waste them, I would, uh…have some fun. 😉


JANNINE GALLANT, author of ASKING FOR TROUBLE ~ Will a demon in a diaper bring them together—or tear them apart forever? Available FREE on Amazon now until Feb. 22nd!   Website: http://www.janninegallant.com/

Want: This is easy. Clint Eastwood in his Spaghetti Western days is just too, too sexy. That glimmering stare and go to hell attitude. Oh my! He can carry me off into the sunset on a horse any day.

Wed: Paul Newman (sigh). Those baby blues look straight into your soul. And talk about handsome… I’d have to marry him because he must know how to cook with all those food lines. Right?

Waste: Sorry Sam. The man never did much for me. As for Tom Selleck—rugged and sexy without a doubt, but I’m not a fan of mustaches. I’d have to waste them both!


Darcy Flynn, author of Rogue’s Son – Kit doesn’t need a man, thank you very much! Website/Blog: www.darcyflynnromances.com

Want: Clint, you’re one cool guy and handsome to boot. Your ‘spaghetti westerns’ always called to me. Yep, I’d enjoy a fling in one of those honky-tonks!

Wed: That’s easy. Tom Selleck. He’s tall, dark and extremely good-looking. And that twinkle in his eye does something to my innards. J Plus, I’ve always wanted to kiss a man with a mustache! Sigh

Waste: Paul “Butch Cassidy” Newman, normally, you’d be my man. You’re adorable and your piercing, blue eyes make me swoon. But, since you die in the end anyway, I guess I’ll have to let you go.


Linda Carroll-Bradd is the author of contemporary rodeo story, Tie Down My Heart. Website www.lindacarroll-bradd.com

Want—Paul Newman—I had a major crush on him in high school. Went to see “Butch Cassidy” 6 times in the movie theatre in its initial release—which was fairly unheard of among my friends.

Wed—Sam Elliott—who wouldn’t want to listen to his gorgeous voice every single day? Even now, I don’t fast-forward through whatever commercial (beef or trucks) when I hear his voice-over.

Waste—Clint Eastwood—can’t get all those Italian-made westerns out of my head and hate squinty eyes in a hero


SILVER JAMES, author of THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC (Werewolves, Fae, and Dragons, oh my! What’s Sade Marquis, a human FBI agent, to do? Solve the crime, of course.), Website: http:/www.silverjames.com

Want: Sam Elliott AND Tom Selleck. There is no way I’m going to choose between these two! Want them both. Like now, please! *waggles brows* I mean, I fell into a potted plant for Sam (seriously!) and I’ve had a thing for Tom without his shirt on since forever.

Wed: Since I’m not a polygamist, I’ll marry either Sam or Tom. Or maybe I’ll move somewhere where I *could* marry both. Because, damn. The sexy just doesn’t stop with those two. I could stare and listen (among other things) all freaking day for the rest of my life.

Waste: Sorry Paul Newman and Clint Eastwood. Y’all are really nice and all but seriously, if I have Sam and Tom, I don’t need anyone else. At all. Ever. *nods*


Diane Burton, author of ONE RED SHOE (wannabe writer rescues wounded spy while risking her heart). Buy link:  http://amzn.com/B00FDXRHZA  Website:  www.dianeburton.com

Want: Sam Elliott and Tom Selleck. Whoo-hoo. A two-fer. A menage? Nah. One at a time. Love Sam’s voice. He just keeps getting better. Tom? I’ve had a crush on him since Magnum P.I. (Oops, just reread the instructions. I’m supposed to choose? No way. I’m leaving this.)

Wed: Paul Newman. OMG. His grin, his eyes. (notice which I listed first) His faithfulness in real life to Joanne. <swoon>

Waste: Clint Eastwood Sorry. I did enjoy all the spaghetti westerns. Loved him in Two Mules for Sister Sara. But I can’t get past his behavior at the Republican convention.


Qwillia Rain, author of Looking at Rose: Poker Posse 1 — Never underestimate a Southern mama’s determination to find the right man for her little girl —  Website/Blog: http://authorqwilliarain.blogspot.com

*** – Qwilla is offering a copy of  Looking at Rose: Poker Posse 1 for one person who comments to the blog.

Want: Paul Newman, he has classic good looks, but his intelligence, quick wit, and sex appeal make him too attractive to overlook.  Although I doubt very much he’d ever give in. An interviewer once asked if he’d ever been tempted to stray after he married Joanne Woodward. His response: Why go out for hamburger when you’ve got steak at home? The man was intelligent, charismatic, and dedicated.

Wed: Tom Selleck and Sam Elliott (I’ll take both of them, they can figure out how to divvy up the time, LOL) Love both men’s voices, their looks, and their self-effacing manner. Both of the men have fascinated me since I was young. They are strong, dedicated, and determined. Shadow Riders exhibited characters who would never give up to retrieve the women they loved, and that they would make their kidnappers pay for the crime with their lives.

Waste: Clint Eastwood. Despite how much I loved him in the westerns and his run on Rawhide (not to mention the great performances in Trouble with the Curve and Absolute Power) I would have to waste Clint Eastwood simply because he honestly doesn’t appeal to me sexually. Never has.


Nancy Fraser, author of  A Saved Woman, part of the Lawmen and Outlaws series from The Wild Rose Press. “She was used merchandise, stale bread. How could she ever hope for the love of a good man.” Available now through Kindle Select.

Want: Tom Selleck, not just as a cowboy but in any role he’s ever played (except perhaps the gay newscaster in the movie In and Out). He’s aged very gracefully and is even sexier now. Plus, look at those long fingers! <Fans self!>

Wed: Paul Newman. Loved his sense of humor in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. How can you not admire the man, his charitable causes, and his long and adoring marriage to Joanne Woodward. That was one lucky lady! And, of course, those eyes!

Waste: Clint Eastwood. I’ve never been a Clint Eastwood fan and can’t remember a time when I ever thought of him as sexy.
