Hey there! So, I’m busy writing the next book in my Kisses in the Sand series and having so much fun with my characters, Honor and Bryce, but I’m stuck on something and thought I’d reach out to my awesome friends and readers for help.

Here’s what I need: a witty, funny saying for Honor when she’s thinking about how delicious Bryce is. Something instead of “Oh, God.” Or “Holy moly.” Or “Oh my.” Some two-word exclamation that maybe hasn’t been used before.

Got any ideas for me? I’d love to use something from one of my readers in the book!

    I love this idea. My offering is yummylicious or bugger me. I suck at this but it was too fun not to try :)

      Hi Rachel! I’m so glad you tried! Thank you! I have a feeling I’m going to love more than one suggestion!!

  2. Well, there is always my favorite, the good old standby, “Oh, balls.” Not sure that works in a romance novel though ;)How about “wow, just…wow.” Or “Holy Hotness.” Or “My stars.”

    How about ‘heavens above’, ‘Blimey O’Reilly’ or even though it’s a bit longer, ‘oh my stars and garters’. Had to include that one. Love it!

    He’s so hot he should be illegal.

    My teenage daughter added Honor should ask for his “digits”. Her best friend said she’d think: Oh, dang! Spicy!

    Yes, we made your post a text party :)

  5. I’m guessing you don’t want Penny’s “Holy Crap on a Cracker” from BBT. :) Everything I can think of is funny, but not character-specific to your heroine.

    I’m so happy to see all your success and want to stay linked up. I’m about to delete my Blogger blog so be sure to bookmark/subscribe/something. I’m sure we’re hooked up on Twitter, aren’t we?

      Laura!! I’m so happy to hear from you! I just tweeted you! :) I want to stay in touch, too. I swear I was just thinking of you the other day. We need a proper catch-up. And I love Penny’s saying! Love that show! I may have to borrow it for Honor – it actually totally fits her. She’s a movie buff! I could add TV to that.
