Vote Now And Win! - Lois Greiman

Clive Owen, Antonio Banderos, or Colin Farrell.

Think this is an excuse just to post pics of good-looking guys? No way. I actually have a reason.

Here’s the deal… my third Un-mystery, UNSCREWED, just hit bookshelves everywhere. It’s the ongoing story of Christina McMullen, cocktail waitress turned shrink and her continuing relationship/battle with Lieutenant Jack Rivera, L.A.’s most sex-itating cop.


Recently, my publisher asked me to submit pictures of how I envision Rivera. And while he’s pretty clear in my mind…and dreams, he’s not easy to explain. Thus I took on the onerous task of gazing at dark, mouth-watering guys for a while in an effort to determine who best embodies Chrissy’s nemesis. So…for those of you who haven’t read my Un-books, I’ll give a quick little description of my most talked about Un-hero, and then I’d like you all to vote on which of these men best represents him.


Here goes: Gerald (Jack) Rivera is in his late thirties. He’s Cherokee and Spanish, has a couple of moldering skeletons in his closet and is L.A.P.D. down to his short hairs. He’s divorced from a woman who was way too sweet for him, (unlike the smart-mouthed Christina) has a soft spot for his Mama and his dog, is smoking hot, and stab-in-the-eye exasperating.


So have at it folks. Which of these guys best personifies Rivera? Or, can you think of someone else who might be even more sexy….errr…I mean…appropriate? Chime on in. I’m giving away a copy of Unzipped and Unplugged to one much-appreciated voter.

My vote goes to Clive Owen. I love those mysterious eyes. I'd want to read any book that had a hero that took after him. lol

Clive Owen is my choice as well. He seems to fit your description to me...plus I find him very attractive and wouldn't mind reading a book with a hero that resembles him.

Oh my, great minds think alike. No contest - Clive Owen every time. I used him as my inspiration for a wip last year - he has everything: charm, bad-boy status, moody, cheeky sparkle, fun, dangerous... *sigh*

I vote Clive Owen too. He is yummy. :)

lois greiman said...

Wow!! A concensus!! Who knew? Although, I admit, I saw him in Children of Men last night and he was pretty appealing. But Antonia and Colin aren't exactly horse meat.

Juliet said...

My vote is for Clive Owen too. I think any of them would fit well with your description, but Clive Owen is so Hot that everyone else goes to a second place next to him :)

Mona said...

Definitely Clive Owen.

joelle said...

Clive Owen is the best man for this job. Extremely appealing.

I'm gonna go with Colin Farrell, just to mix it up a bit

Laura Drewry said...

I'm in the minority. Clive Owen just doesn't do it for me. Sorry - LOL. My vote goes 100% to Colin Farrell.

I vote for Liam Neeson. he has it all.

liz said...

Hm...hard to choose...I cant see none of those men fitting the descriptions of Rivera...Half Cherokee and Spanish...the only one that comes close is Antonio Banderas, but I think he is too old nowadays...

Let me think about it some more...and will try to bring a pic laters

=) Liz

Congratulations, Traveler! :)

Thanks for running a contest, Lois!

Gigi said...

Antonio gets my vote. :)
He is not too old he is just a bit more mature and experienced.:)

Teresa said...

Hi, I vote for Gerald. He is the kind of man that I find romantic.

Jennifer Y. said...

Congrats traveler!

tobfree35 said...

I believe Clive Owen is the winner here. Lol.

catslady said...

I'm voting for Colin lol.

liz said...

Congrats Traveler!

Hm...It is not that I am saying Banderas is not handsome...I thought he was a great Zorro. In fact, he and Catherine Zeta Jones made a cute couple...

It is just that the description of the character somehow to me is diff from what he looks like (Bandera, Owen, and Colin). Dont get me wrong, they are all handsome, but not the "Rivera" type.

Am I making sense?
