Becka's Hottie of the Week

This week's Hottie is a man I actually had never seen before this very morning. Shocking, I know. I was chatting with my publisher at Champagne Books via Yahoo IM, and asked her to suggest a Hottie for me this week, as I just wasn't "feelin" anyone. She came back with this man, who, in all honesty, is pretty smokin', I must say. What's his name? Mr. Eduardo Verastegui.

Don't ask me how to pronounce his last name, because I've got absolutely no idea. All I know about this guy is he was born in Mexico, was in some kind of Mexican boy band, and starred in a few Mexican soaps. (I bet that was wildly entertaining. I love watching those over-the-top soaps. You don't even have to know Spanish to be entertained. LOL)

But this Eduardo guy... He's got "it", whatever "it" is. He's a handsome guy, what can I say? He's a little older than me, which is a bonus, because it seems anyone who's anyone cool nowadays is younger than me. :P Yup, I'm gettin' old. But he was born in 1974, same year I was, but in May, as opposed to October.

I love his thick, dark hair and expressive eyes. Perfect for the portrait of a romance hero, don't you think? :P Many thanks to Ellen at Champagne Books for pointing him out to me. Imagine. I could have gone my entire life without ever seeing this man's face. Heh. Congratulations, Eduardo Verastegui. You're Becka's Hottie of the Week!

He's got yummy bedroom eyes.

Yes, he does, but you know, I've noticed a trend with hottie male models.

They don't smile.

What the heck? Why not? I think some men are at their sexiest when they smile. It doesn't even have to be a toothy grin, just a little suggestive upturn of the mouth, you know?

Everyone drools over Andrei Claude, one of the more famouse romance eBook cover models, but I seriously think the man would be hotter if he cracked a smile, like a "hey there, you look good enough to eat" kinda smile. ;)

Yeah, they should smile more. But I think without the smile, it gives the appeal of wanting a woman to cheer him up, ya know like a tortured hero? I always fall for them.

It also makes them more mysterious. Makes you wonder what deep dark thoughts are going through their heads.

Or maybe it is a smoldering look sometimes. Makes you wonder which woman is on the receiving end.
