Jerk of My Dreams #1

Jerk. Asshole. Douchenozzle. Admit it- you hate to love the jerks. That alpha male character who is so arrogant and rude but sexy as hell. That foul mouthed douche bag of a man who rocks your traitorous heart. We've all read them and we've all liked them to some extent. In real life you wouldn't touch the man with a ten foot pole. But in the fictional world? Nothing can stand in the way! Everyone would be lying to themselves if they didn't admit that the meaner the man, the further we run... Towards them! *sigh* 

That's what this weekly meme is about- those jerky delicious men! Each Friday this meme will go up, and you can share your jerk anyway you want: review, interview, lines and quotes, giveaway of a book. However you want! All you have to do is sign up and follow the linky. Any time you comment on someones post, leave your link so that person can comment back. 

Linky code-

<!-- start InLinkz script -->
<script type="text/javascript">
                document.write('<script type="text/javascript" src=' + new Date().getTime() + '"><\/script>');</script>
<!-- end InLinkz script -->

I'm not going to start it this week since I want to give people time to sign up, but give you a little inside on how it started...

About a year or so ago, I created a shelf on Goodreads called, Jerk of My Dreams. I don't create many shelves other than the basic genre ones on there, but this one was a must- and it's my favorite.

A lot of my reader friends and friends on Goodreads starting commenting on it and how they love it, which surprised me. I mean, how many people like to read about rude and nasty characters? I thought I was the only one, besides my friend Alyssa, who liked them. Truthfully, this is my favorite kind of character. I can never have enough of them. So after months and months of people saying I need to do more with my jerks, I am.

I love this meme--it's a little scary how some jerk characters just make me swoon. What that says about me, I have no freakin' clue, lol.
Can't wait to participate!
