Why I love Jack Reacher #WinterWonderMan #Giveaway

Welcome to the Winter Wonder Man Blog Hop hosted by H.D. Thomson and Bella Media Management. It runs from January 16th to 19th.

The topic is 'What is it about a movie or book hero that makes our toe curl?'

First of all he has to have the total package, good-looking with a body that makes you want to lick the screen or pages and be able to kick ass. But my absolute favorite is that he's got to have a no nonsense attitude and be flawed. I love a flawed hero.



One of my favorite fictional characters is Jack Reacher. If you've ever read the books by Lee Child or watched the movie Jack Reacher, you'll know he is an ex-military man who won several honour and now investigates tough legal cases. But the thing that gets me about him is that he is a loner, a drifter. All he has is whatever he's carrying on him as he travels across America which is just a debit card, money and a foldable toothbrush. The man is just awesome in my book. You can check out the entire Jack Reacher series here.

You can check out the movie trailer.

  3. I like the sweet ones who get underestimated at first, but end up awesome! A good sense of humor and a hidden naughty streak don't hurt, either...

  7. I loooove these books. I started the first one, and got totally hooked and read all of them in about three weeks, back to back. Like the books much more than the film. I've met the author, too, and he's lovely, very genuine :)

  23. I totally love Jack Reacher too -- but only the book version. I refuse to see the movie.....because although Tom Cruise is a talented actor---he is NOT Jack Reacher.

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  25. I love a caring, protective hero, one who can go all alpha male, yet doesn’t feel threatened and even encourages their loved one taking the lead and taking charge. A sense of humor is also important. It doesn’t matter if it’s just goofiness, dry humor, wit, etc, just some type of sense of humor. He has to be able to deal with feelings, not all, oh I’m a guy, we don’t do those things, over-macho crap. I want a guy who’s secure in his massculinity (you know, not afraid to wear pink or scared people will think he’s “gay” or “a girl” for actually doing/enjoying things like going to the theatre or dressing fashionably). Loyalty and fidelity are extremely important as well as being able to cook. A guy who can cook is super sexy. And romantic at heart as well.
