Bye, Pouty Guy! Hope your tummy feels better soon. You don’t look very comfortable…

Okay– something about Pouty Guy shouts “help I need a chiropractor”– or is it just me? (Mayhem… *pets* No need to pouts, precious… you’re still the most beautiful…)
Poor guy, does he have a tummy ache? And why does he keep showing us his armpits, yes they are very lovely, down with your arms now 😉
Pouty Guy looks like he’s tired of looking for a Sugar Daddy or something like that. I wonder if stock photography has a Sugar Daddy somewhere…

Naughty boys, indeed, Princess – taking over the blog and taking over your job! You should protest. Or go on strike. Or something.

It’s funny how some of the guys you associate with book characters. CCG will always be Noah and this time my first thought when I saw him was “Hey, it’s Joey”.
A recent post from Tam..Short people wearing shorts reading shorts
Amy: Many of these cover models look as if they need a chiropractor!
Brigitte: LOL! Oh yes. They aren’t used as often, so it’s taking me a while to collect enough photos. 🙂
Tam: Did you realize that Joey had gotten around so much? 😉
he was pouting because just out of frame there was a guy hitting him square in the stomach with a 2X4
A recent post from furiousball..she fell down and made me proud
Whoa! Furiousball… you got some pent up aggression? Who are you wishing you could do that to?
A recent post from Miranda..Magnificent Contest Bar with Fuzzy Ink
Funny! Okay, is the original with his hands up, and then the crossed arms are photoshopped, or is it two pouty poses? Pooor pouty guy. They made him wear an 80’s shirt!!!
A recent post from Carolyn Crane..I am hidious!
CJ: I think there are three different pouty poses.
Mayhem- That’s okay, because he’ll trip over his bottom lip.
A recent post from Lorraine..New Hamburg
I thought the same thing Tam, I was like ” HEEEYY!” and then it went on. XD
And yeaaah anyone who READ CC knows that Joey gets around. That’s his whole deal!
Wow. The mask is really hideous and for some reason I find the mask harder to stomach than the random straps (though they are also bad).
A recent post from Seanna Lea..the farmer’s market
Pouty Guy does get around quite a bit. But don’t worry May, you look much better pouting than he does. 🙂
A recent post from Lily..Mondays… Music and Man Candy
That is right Mayhem, you let them naughty boys that no one pouts on this blog but you!!!!
Chris, you know you make me laugh!!!!!
Thanks for sharing this story on a monday!
Hope you had a great weekend!
wow, he has much angst… ;o)
Poor baby seems to have a recurring stomach issue. I think Pouty guy could use an Alka Seltzer and needs to keep a waste basket close by in case his stomachache becomes something more volatile. When he is feeling better I would suggest he see a good colorist who could bring his hair color more in line with his eyebrow and armpit hair color. And I know I am older than you sweet things, but I think he looks a bit too young for these stressful situations. Maybe that is the underlying cause of the sour stomach.
Why, oh WHY do I keep reading these Headlines as “Misadventures in SOCK photography”? Maybe it would be a misadventure if there was a sock?
Pouty guy’s hair looks like he placed a bowl over his head and cut around it.

LOL It would seem “Pouty Guy” does indeed have a stomach and jean issue, he also makes frequent visits to the hairdresser for hair dye… And Pouty Guy? Whose legs are those? I know youâ€™re wearing jeans in the original photoâ€¦)
You are too funny Chris!! Hey Mayhem – if there is need to pout – you pout girl!
Have a great Monday Chris!
A recent post from Lea..Fiona Jayde Picks Her Desert Island Keepers
Blonde doesn’t suit Pouty Haired Guy. But the abs do.
Mayhem, I totally agree. Jeezlouise…
Pouty Guy is so Joey from CC – the boy gets around. Though the shadows in his armpits on the Reckless cover look kinda odd.
A recent post from Ava March..Story Behind the Story – Bound by Deception
Another entertaining tale 🙂
Mayhem is still number one at pouting 😉
A recent post from Janna ErotRomReader..Monday’s Hot Couple & Some Great Reads
My daughters watch a show all the time called Big Time Rush and pouty guy looks like one of the boys in the band! Tell me it ain’t true! lol Of course the guy on tv is just a teen.
A recent post from Tracy..What I Read Last Week
Forgive me, but pouty guy looks like a pouty teenager. Reminds me too much of my son with a tummy ache. Shudder….
I am surrounded by pouty guys every day. Pouting is not hot.
A recent post from Eyre..Recent Reads
Perhaps Pouty Guy has IBS? Krohn’s? Diverticulitis? Ulcerative Colitis? Or maybe he’s mad at his parents? He looks a little young. And really proud of hit pits.
May…Pretty Panther Princesses don’t need to Pout over Pitiful Pouty boys with Plentiful Pit hair…
A recent post from Melanie..Homesick
LMAO!!! That was superb Chris!
Mayhem & Chaos…you have one very talented mama!
*kisses to my kittehs*
A recent post from Anna Shah Hoque..Happy Monday!
Don’t worry, May, we like you better. Especially if the naughty boys pout like that.
A recent post from naomi..eye candy friday
You are my hero, Chris! Thanks for the giggles.
I think Pouty Guy is pouting due to a bad case of IBS and a Justin Bieber-esque do. I’d pout, too.
May, you’re the bestest pouter ever.
I blame all the pouting on the time spent at the waxing salon!
A recent post from Jodi..exile in boxville
LOL! Pouty guy does look like he’s about be sick. Especially on the “Possessed” cover. 😉
LOL – I’m starting to think that the lower body transplant on the Reckless cover wasn’t entirely successful…
ROFLOL! I will never be able to look seriously at a book cover again 🙂
A recent post from orannia..Flitting
I thought he was underarm guy until he couldn’t hold up his arms anymore & then turned into pouty guy. Or maybe someone told him he needed deodorant.
LOL! Maybe pouty guy is sick of all of the hair color changes. That’s way too many armpits for my taste.
A recent post from Sydney..The "Be Careful What You Wish For" Post
You haven’t found one in a long time that has so many different poses…
He looks so young…
Mayhem – Ms Whinger…
Pouty Guy looks a bit young to have had so many adventures!
A recent post from Patti..Has anyone tried Bookswim?
Aww May is so pretty in her poutiness
