My First Movie Monster- Jodi Redford

Thanks to the awesomesauce Selena Illyria for inviting me to share my first movie monster experience. I’ll admit that when she mentioned the topic I had to really think on this one for a bit. You see, I’ve watched a crapton of horror and monster movies and it was TOUGH to remember where my love for this particular genre of film initially took root. But then the answer slapped me upside the head. SWAMP THING. Holy crapola, I’m kinda ashamed to admit that it took me a whole five minutes to recall the epic experience of this movie. For those not familiar with this cinematastic masterpiece, it stars the reigning queen of all things awesome and campy, Adrienne Barbeau, as well as another of my favorite actors, Ray Wise, who portrays Doc Holland—AKA Swamp Thing. One of the things I love about this movie is that the monster is actually the hero. Which of course means he gets the girl, right? I know what you’re thinking. A walking mutated plant-man. It’d be like dating a philodendron. Or worse, a podocarpus. But I guess when you’re trapped in the jungle and your options are limited, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. Let’s just hope that she’s got a green thumb, or that relationship is doomed.

sweet-sizzle-fb-coverValentine’s Day—the bane of Rory Sinclair’s existence. Hard to forgive the one holiday responsible for the single most moronic decision of her life. If it was up to her, she’d skip anything to do with cupid, but with her business partner home sick with the flu, she’s stuck delivering a bunch of cookie bouquets to a local firehouse. Who knows, maybe she’ll cure her Valentine’s Day neurosis and heat up the mattress with a hunky firefighter. Her plan of donning some edible undies and getting her freak on goes up in flames though the instant she steps through the doors of Station 5 and spots Bennet Jackson—the man responsible for her decade long Valentine’s Day boycott.

No matter how hard he’s tried, Ben has never gotten over the innocent girl he foolishly let slip between his fingers. When Rory unexpectedly crashes back into his world, he figures it’s his only shot at righting the wrongs of his past and getting her back in his bed and his life. For good. Unfortunately, she has other plans. Ones that don’t include him. He’s well aware that she has every reason to despise him, but if there’s one thing he’s up for, it’s a challenge. Because there’s no way in hell he’s losing the woman of his dreams again. And this time he’s prepared to pull out every dirty, sexy, and hotter-than-sin trick to convince her to stay.
