Sidewalk-Flower cover

I stole a few minutes with Lucky Mason, the tall, blond and handsome country cutie from Sidewalk Flower, while he was on his lunch break at the family wood shop today…

Me: (Lucky just handed me a small brown paper sack…awww, it’s a tuna sammy, my favorite.)  Hey handsome, thanks for the homemade lunch, what’re you up to?

Lucky:  (He steals a peek at what I’m typing here on my laptop and rubs his brow.) “You’re welcome, darlin’.  Oh wow, there I am, half-nekked.” (Points to the hunky Sidewalk Flower cover.)

Me: Oh shush, you are not half-nekked. Okay, maybe a little.  But trust me, you look SUPER YUMMY.  The ladies love it and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked to send you over to mow lawns 😉  Wait a second, are you blushing?

Lucky: No.  (oh yes he is)

Me: So hey, I know you were nervous when I told you I’d signed you up for this fabulous Book Boyfriend thingy but you really are a great catch.  Ladies love a hard working country boy.  I was hoping you’d tell the readers about your ideal date.

Lucky:  Sure thing.  And I’m not nervous, it’s just that the last time you sent me off to California and put me up against all those rock star friends of yours, I got myself into trouble.  So yeah, simple and country is my thing.  If I’m lucky enough to be on a date with a special lady, I’d fix us something easy to carry in the cooler, pack up some blankets and drive us out to the Duck.  (That’s the river by Lucky’s house.)   Hopefully after we ate, she’d be up for some splashing around.

Me:  Well hold on there, Lucky.  I’ve been to the Duck.  It’s pretty raging in parts.  What if she wasn’t a good swimmer?  Worse, what about all the mud?

Lucky:  You’re right, I didn’t think about that.  Shoot.  Well, luckily for us both, I’m the biggest thing that would be in that river so she’d have plenty to hold onto.  Hopefully she’d let me make that muddy part up to her.  I guess that’s where that blue bath stuff I picked out would come in handy.  (Long, strong Lucky Mason is grinning like you wouldn’t believe…)

Me: Lucky, what’s that all about?  You better tell me, mister.

Lucky:  Well, that t-shirt you’re giving away, I was just thinking how cute a girl would look in it after I brought her home soaking wet from the river.

Me:  Ditto!  Sort of.  I was just thinking how cute she’d look wearing it while reading your story.

Lucky:  That would be um…hot, actually.  Well on that note, I better get back to work.  Tell all your lady friends I hope they forgive me for the muddy river idea.  I’d sure be lucky to take them anywhere they wanted to go.  I’d like to hear some of those places.

Me:  (Hugs) Will do.  Hey, you’re a stud hero in my book.  Work it, baby.  (He walks off, shaking his head and that long, dark blond hair.)

  1. Friends, Lucky and I are heading to the zoo for a few hours so if any of your lovely comments don’t show up right away, we’ll approve all as soon as we get back! Enjoy! See you in a few 🙂

  2. I love me some Lucky Mason!!!!!! I wouldn’t even mind splashing around in the muddy waters with him. 😉

    My ideal date? Hmmm, there’s so many fun things to do so I think anything unique to the couple is great. But there is a certain Italian restaurant over in Georgetown I love. Lots of twinkly lights. Then a moonlight walk along the Potomac to see the monuments all lit up at night. Yep, that sounds pretty awesomesauce!

    • Hello! Posting as often as you want highly encouraged at this blog 🙂 I love that date…David is and always will be a very lucky man. Consider yourself entered and I’m so happy you all seem to like the shirt!

  3. Ideal date…that is a hard one! I am thinking a cabin in the woods where we can be all alone and not be bothered!! I friended you on fb and followed you on twitter 🙂

  4. Okay…I’m gonna cheat and pretend that there aren’t laws that prevent this anymore…but my ideal date was one that I was taken on YEARS ago…like a long time ago. But my college boyfriend woke me up in the middle of the night and drove me to the airport. We parked outside the fence and sat on the hood of his car and watched airplanes takeoff and land while we talked…he had blankets and snacks and drinks (non-alcoholic because we were pretty smart back then)…illegal now, but completely perfect then.


  5. My hero has got to make me laugh while making my toes curl. He can be tough on the outside and a marshmallow inside.

    Thanks for participating in this awesome hop!
    Thank you so much.

    • I agree with you my friend, we could be anywhere doing anything as long as we’re having fun and sharing some laughs! Good luck and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop. PS-You’d have a hoot with Lucky; he’s easy to get a chuckle out of which in turn would get you to laughin’. 🙂

  6. OK, I signed up to follow this blog, and I liked this page on Facebook. Is there anything else I can do to help win that T-Shirt??? Oh yeah, my perfect date with Lucky would be going to a rodeo with an after concert with Casey James as the opening act! Whoo Hoo! Sockerjo@aol.com

    • Hahahaha, I’m telling you that Lucky and I both are loving this enthusiasm for his t-shirt! I might ask to tag along on a date that fun! Love it! Good luck and enjoy this fabulous hop 🙂

  7. my Ideal date is dinner out and dancing to some country music. My husband use to treat me to one of those once a month

    MinDaf @aol.com

    • Hi Crystal! Oh, you’d have a blast in Lucky’s country fun neck of the woods, I can tell 😉 And it sounds like you had some very special times. Good luck in the hop, my friend and thank you so much for stopping by and sharing.

  8. Good morning y’all! I just wanted to add a little note that unfortunately due to the insane amounts of spam I would have to sift through each day, I keep my blog set up so that new commenters have to be moderated first. So, if you leave a comment but it doesn’t show up right away, don’t worry. Lucky and I are on duty all this week although apparently he and I are on the same sleep schedule so late night comments might not show up until the next morning when we’re both bright eyed and bushy tailed 🙂 Thank you to everyone so far who’s hopped by and shared…these are AWESOME ideal dates 🙂

    • My dearest Donna, now that is a date I am definitely tagging along for. One of my favorite scenes to write in Sidewalk Flower was when Lucky got to see the beach for the first time. Thanks for sharing and good luck with the hop!

    • Hello there Cassandra 🙂 See, we ladies don’t require all that much, do we? I love walking through a town that keeps twinkly or Christmas style lights up all year round. It’s the little things, isn’t it? Well I hope you get to go on many dates that are just that perfect and good luck in the hop!

    • Oooooo, this sounds just right. I’m curious to know now what type of movie date girl you are? Scary flick so you have a good reason to cuddle in protective arms or rom-com to see just how devoted your lucky guy is! I love simplicity. Thank you so much for hopping by!

    • Okay Kaylyn, Lucky just lit up at this one! You ladies are speaking his language, I’m tellin’ ya. Quick trivia for you…how many fish have you caught in your lifetime? I’ve caught exactly one but I absolutely love the idea of being on a body of water and the tranquility about it. It does sound like a wonderful day, thanks so much for hopping on over. Good luck!

  9. Hello my dear Ashley 🙂 I want this date NOW! (Sorry, hubby is gone on a business trip so all your ideal dates are making me wish he was home!) My beta readers tease me that I always have my couples laying out blanket pallets on the floor…but those make for some of the most romantic times 😉 Thank you for the follow and extra good luck in the drawing!

    • Desi the blonde…(I Love your name! by the way) …Meet Lucky Mason. You ladies are making this way too fun for us 😉 I agree, that’s one sexy and very ideal date to have. And thank you for lovin’ the swag. I do try. Good luck!!!!

      • Hi Sherry! Welcome and thank you for being a blog follower 🙂 I have to say that we ladies seem to really enjoy simple quiet time with our partners. I guess when you’re with the right person, that’s all you really need. Lucky says he’s over the moon to be learning this about us. 😉 Good luck in the hop and thank you so much for stopping by.

    • Hello there friend. You know, I think that’s why we hold romance novels so close to our hearts, because we can live vicariously through them. My hubby isn’t big on dancing either unless it’s got a real hoppy beat like the polka! And we also have to be in the privacy of our own home for that to happen. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing. Wishing you luck in the hop!

  10. My ideal date would be a motorcycle ride (for holding on tight) to a beach club for dancing, followed by moon & surf watching on the beach with a fire, smores & warm bear hugs & butterfly kisses. Love your interview with Lucky, Sidewalk Flower, that shirt, and your email blogs plus like Evernight on FB.

    • Hello there CJ 😉 Oh, I love that! Hey, a girl’s got to hold on tight to her man and what an awesome way to work that in to your ideal date. Thank you so much for the sweet comments about this fun post. And thank you for being a follower! Extra good luck and I hope you’re enjoying the hop.

  11. I am actually right there with Lucky’s idea (even the mud doesn’t scare me off!). I prefer things simple and intimate. Outdoors on a nice day with good food and nice company is perfect!!


    • Right on Kassandra! Score one for the lucky one who gets to take you out for that special date. Oh, I love simplicity and intimacy so very much too. Maybe we can all secretly hope the guys are catching some of these great hints…we’re so easy to please! One of my favorite things about Lucky is how willing he is to step out of his comfort zone and just do something simple yet meaningful. Good luck my friend and thank you so much for sharing.

  12. Lucky is so sweet… Lucky’s date sounds very nice, mud don’t bother me… A nice beach, wine, moonlight, dancing to music in our heads is a great date too… Thanks for being part of the hop and for this great giveaway.

    • Uh oh Jeannie, you’ve got a certain hunky country boy blushing over here. He keeps telling me I’m gonna make him sound un-manly if I keep busting him out but I just can’t help it. Thank YOU very much for stopping by, helping me tease my manly blog hop co-host and for sharing a simply divine sounding date. Good luck!

    • Oh, I hear you on that one my friend. Now all I can think about is my man cooking up something special this weekend, thank you for the excellent idea! Lucky says he’s pretty good with a steak 🙂 Good luck in the hop!

    • Hello Jennifer and thank you! Yes, there should definitely be more “whisking away” in our dates. May the lucky man who joins you on this tropical island be the strapping sort who knows the importance of wine and flowers. Cheers! Good luck!

  13. Hi! Thanks for sharing!! My ideal date? I want something simple and sweet. A picnic out in a wild flower field or under a shady tree. Snacks to eat, something sweet to drink and dessert, eaten off each other. lol 😀 Thank you!

  14. Ho-ly Mo-ly, that sounds so good! I know your name here is shadowluvs2read but each time I look up at it to make sure I thank you properly, all I see is Shadowlust! Hehe, hope you don’t mind the new nickname. Fabulous date with the perfect ending. I wish you gads of dessert and good luck in this hop. 🙂

  15. First Im following you, second he sounds adorable, three LUSH I love Lush products. Ehem anyways.

    Ick dates Ive never had much luck but I think. Someone who I can feel a connection, but all the same it isnt oh this is perfect. Someone who I can face down for the silliest things and they stay that the silliest things. Someone who will watch my back, and Id watch his. Oh you meant date as in act not person ehem *clears through, looks around*

    I suppose a simple date of watching a movie or playing a game with someone. Like jenga, simple bonding things. The simple little things, nothing costly or extravagant. Just some simple time spent.

    sailoreternaldiamond @ yahoo . com

    • Good morning sweet Skye, your comment is adorable. Thank you SO MUCH for describing your ideal date to me. It’s sort of beautiful…”someone who I can face down for the silliest things…” Now look, you’ve gone and given me the shiny eyes. 😉 Wishing you extra luck and here is a virtual fist bump for Lush’s fabulousness. Have a great weekend, good luck (seriously, thank you, this was awesome)

      • Thank you~ I enjoyed answering the question. Love is rarely a perfect straight line, and I think everyone needs that one person who makes them happy. Yet they can throw a bit of random tom foolery into it all without it destroying that happiness. I had a great weekend and again thank you. 😀

  16. Okay, so here is the deal. It is time for me to be whisked away with my writing chapter for our annual retreat. At first I figured I’d leave Lucky in charge of approving comments but I hear he has a mountain of wood to turn into those cute little bear cub statues that people like to put on their front porches. He’s a working man, what can I say? Oh, and full disclosure. I’m not so tech savvy so will do my best to moderate from retreat. One thing is for sure, I’ll be able to read all the comments from my phone so please keep them coming, I’m LOVING them! I’ll be back Sunday if you don’t hear from me until then…You All Rock!

  17. Ideal date, umm
    For me to whisked off to a seclude isolated cabin where there is NO way of interruptions (a romantic candle lit dinner, may be a movie or just some time to talk & explore each other…)


    email, Fb and twitter following 🙂

    • Hi Beckey! First I should say I’ve snuck away from retreat and am attempting to reply on my phone so we should all be very afraid! The best part of your date is No Interruptions! Especially not while one is exploring! Thank you so much for following!!

  18. It would be fun to amble around a cool city with lots of galleries, coffeehouses, bookstores, and record shops…


    • Trix! Love these stops on your ideal date and also the notion that there’s no time crunch. There should be lots of ambling when you’re with your special someone 🙂 Thank you for stopping by the hop!

  19. Either something spontaneous or something thoughtful.
    The hero trait that I love the most is selflessness. In spite of everything, if the man is selfless it’s unnervingly attractive. I also do love that alpha male air where they control anything and all other men shake in their wake.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    mestith at gmail dot com

    • Meghan, me too! I love a hero who is giving up something to be with his heroine. And then she realizes the value of that and when it’s one of those alpha boys, even more delicious. Glad you like Luckys giveaway, thanks!

    • Hi Jan! I’m telling ya, put a beatiful star filled sky over just about any activity and it takes it to another level of romantic. As does a man cooking for you. Love this my friend. Good luck in the hop!

  20. Well…..mud wrestling with Lucky sounds pretty ideal to me!

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
    elizabeth @ bookattict . com

    • Hold on a second, I gotta holler real quick…”LUCKY, DID YOU HEAR THIS? THERE’S A LADY WANTS TO MUD WRESTLE WITH YOU HUN…Okay, I’ll tell her.” He says he thinks he loves you. Elizabeth, you rock our socks. Good luck!!

  21. My perfect date would include this elements: a bubble bath, wine, chocolate dipped strawberries and a great big bed! It goes with out saying a gentleman or two would be present!


    • Grape April!!! I think lots of things go without saying on this sensuous ideal date!!! Holy moly, woman, I love it! Thank you so much for sharing your fine taste with us. Good luck!!

  22. My ideal date would be to have dinner, see a movie, then take a walk and talk about the movie we saw and anything else we desired.

    I also follow your blog.


    • Thank you Chickie 🙂 Nothing beats a man who wants and is willing to talk to us! I totally get why that makes your “ideal date” list. Lucky is pretty good at talking, or I should say he gives it his best shot. At the end of the day, he freely admits he’s still a guy. But brownie points for trying! Chickie, thank you so much for stopping by and good luck!!! Only a few more hours until I get to draw a winner!

  23. Allrighty friends, I’m off to bed. I’ll check first thing in the morning to see if any comments came in by the midnight deadline tonight. I have to say this has been a real burst of fun for me so thank you all for taking the time to share your lovely dates. You all have made my week…and Lucky’s too 😉 Night, night!

  24. Hi Eva! Yay! Beach dates are at the top of my list for sure. Day or night, chilly or warm, if you’re with your ideal date, there’s so much being offered up by good old mother nature. Sooooo romantic! Thank you for hopping on by and sharing! You rock 🙂

  25. Good morning hoppers! I’m adding Eva’s name to the lucky hat to pull out the winner of Lucky’s prize pack. Be back soon with the result; fingers crossed for you all…
