Smexy Has Found True Love

I have a small obsession with the television series, Game of Thrones. I have talked about it numerous times at Smexy Books and on Twitter – basically to anyone who will listen to me. So of course I must drag my obsession over to the island!


There is a character on the show, Khal Drogo who has basically become my husband fictional lover. He is a fierce, savage warrior (he likes to ravage women, but we are going to look past that). He has epic man-boobs, or “moobs” (and not the floppy, pasty white kind) and he is an all around smexy beast. The actor that plays him is Jason Momoa.

Just so happens, Jason Momoa has landed the part of Conan the Barbarian in the upcoming movie out this summer. And…it just so happens that Penguin is releasing, Conan the Barbarian by Michael Stackpole July 5th – a book based on the movie.

Conan the Barbarian
They even include photos from the movie in the middle of the book. My husband asked me if Conan was even a romance book. Pffffft hubs! Any book with Jason Momoa walking around in tattered clothing, with his moobs proudly displayed to the world is a romance book!


I hope Jason Momoa continues being typecast into these barbaric roles because apparently I was missing a savage warrior in my life. Have I asked hubs to grow out his hair, add 100 pounds of muscle weight, and slaughter something for me? Maybe I have.

So tell me what books I need to read, to experience more of these warrior-type men. I need recommendations because Game of Thrones is ending this weekend!

Why am I not surprised ;)

Mandi said...

What? *innocent face*

*moob obsessed*

KB/KT Grant said...

but Khal has a mutated moob now :(

Mandi said...

*weeps* I'm in mourning.

Dani said...

Oh, You should try Spartacus - the Starz tv show that is all about savage-naked-moobelicius gladiators. Start with Spartacus Blood and Sand and move to Spartacus - Gods of the Arena A 6 episode mini series).
There is lots of blood and violence, but also lots of naked (full fronted) gladiators doing some other intersting things... =)

Mandi said...

Dani - OH REALLY? *runs to turn on Starz*

Thanks!!!

Eva / TXBookjunkie said...

I may have subscribed to HBO *just* to get HBOGO to watch Drogo. Not sure what I'm going to do after the season ends. ;(

Didn't @fictionvixen recently ask for some warlord book recs? You should ask her for her list.

Bells said...

I don't have any books to recommend. I just wanted to stop by and say that I totally support your Moob obsession. ;)

I need to get my brain out of romance land. Kahl and Daenerys have just been introduced (where I am in the book)and I have this epic relationship already built for them in my head. Somehow I don't think that is how it is going to go. But the dude is smokin hot.

You asked for recommendations....The Dark Tower series by Stephen King.

Tracy said...

I was going to recommend Spartacus as well - lots of warrior men on that show! (I believe both seasons are available on Netflix if it's not playing right now.)

Mandi said...

Eva - ooh..I will have to ask her (actually, it might have been KC)

Bells - thank you for the support

Jenny - Keep in mind this is not a romance series with a HEA. I'm skeered Jenny..SCARED!

And Dark Tower - my hubs keeps wanting me to read them...I don't want creepy/freaky though - are they?

Mandi said...

Tracy - niiiice...*runs to Netflix*

Helyce said...

A friend was just telling me about Spartacus. I think I might have to rejoin Netflix. :) She also mentioned Camelot (don't know if HBO or SHO), though I think that's a young King Arthur type-don't know if they have any man boobs there.

Patti (Book Addict) said...

You know I share your Drogo love!

You've never seen Spartacus?!? Girl, you don't know what you've been missing!! (There's a scene in Spartacus Blood and Sand that my family members still refer to "horse cock" hint: it wasn't on a horse, lol)

Lizzielvr said...

I have no books to recommend, but you can just watch "300" with Gerard Butler over and over again (not that I have done that...) Plenty of moobs for everyone!

jennyb845 said...

Mandi- Ok part of me knows there isn't a HEA but my brain can't help it! It seems a very intriguing match. Although isn't she just 13?

Dark Tower- yes it is a bit weird. It has to be since it is King. But they are pretty good and being made a mini series/movie. I thought it kind if similar to this situation.

I need to go check out Spartacus.

If you like Jason Mamoa, the check out Stargate Atlantis. He was the whole reason I watched the show every single week!

Jenny said...

Dear Mandi,

You have inspired me to also ask my husband to grow out his hair, put on some epic muscle weight and cultivate his own pair of moobs, and slaughter something on my behalf like the sexy bastard he is. I'll let you know how it goes;)

Pamela {Spaz} said...

I have become seriously obsessed with this man since the very first episode of GoT. I went and googled him and googled him until even *I* felt dirty :P He apparently has been smokin hot his entire life, from what my google results have concluded. LOL I will sooooooooo be seeing Conan now. And fanning myself the entire time. WHEW!

Mandi said...

Helyce - there must be someone in Camelot with man boobs, yes? ;)

Patti - "horse cock" Smexy is intrigued..very intrigued!

Lizzie - I've never seen 300...I've failed the moob. I'm not worthy.

Mandi said...

Jenny - srsly - I need to be there for you towards the end. Also - don't read my blog post at my blog tomorrow. It spoils a little. George Martin is definitely not a romance writer! I'm not sure my heart can take it.

In the book, I believe she is 13ish yes. But in the show she is portrayed as older.

Mandi said...

Anon - I'm so checking that out!

Jenny - our hubs can run around in loin cloths and slaughter things for us! It will be epic!! I'll get the horses!

Pamela - I too conclude that his hotness has spanned years. Plus he is freaking 6'5. Jaysus, I'm lusting.

MANDY said...

Ok...I have read every comment here and I am laughing and fanning myself at the same time! Holy hotness....6 foot 5!!!! I am seriously in love, and it is his pecs that draw me in every time! Spartacus....lots of man candy there! The "horse" scene is unbelievable! My girls and I zoom in and pause each time! Ladies...I must confess....my hubby does have those moobs and I love placing my hands all over them, squeezing and...got to go (panting, searching for husband now!)

jennyb845 said...

6'5"?? This conversation has to stop. I am getting bothered. Holy sex on a stick.

Fiction Vixen said...

I'm all in favor of the continued type casting for Jason Momoa. :)

Nixie said...

LOL ya'll are funny

I didn't know about Game of Thrones ending this weekened though...grr to that I say!

Mandi said...

Mandy - Your hubs has moobs?? I'm so jealous. JEALOUS I tell you. :)

Jenny - What will I do when the show ends this Sunday? This convo must never end. It is my last resort ;)

FV - *fingers crossed* for more typecasting!

Nixie - I know! so sad! I assume it will come back for a season 2 next year. But still :(

Nixie said...

I hope they come back with a season 2. This one was SO intense. lol I'd have to watch something else before I could sleep.

BethScharwath said...

You definitely need to watch 300 but just stay away from Gerry, he's mine!

Nixie said...

Haha! I've seen and loved 300. Whole lotta yum in that movie

redzsm said...

Lol, these comments are great! Made me giggle :)

I also was going to recommend Sparticus. Both seasons are fantastic! And...not many shows on tv have full-frontal maleness, I'm so down with that! *fans self*

I'm glad that DIK went straight to the "most knowledgeable source" on moobs! Smexy is the authority. ;)

Also, u need to run, not walk, to rent 300! Its moobalicious!

Mandi said...

Nixie - I know..I get so wound up watching this show that my eyeballs go O_O.

Beth - Oh really? Are we going to have a throw down over Gerry? I do love myself some Gerry ;)

redzsm - Ok! I will def rent 300. I actually think my hubs has seen it - this isn't right ;)

Aurian said...

If you like some fantasy and warriors, you should read Robert Jordan - Wheel of Time. And did you ever see or read Terry Goodkind - Legend of the Seeker?

Mandi said...

No..but thank you for the recs!

orannia said...

I was also going to suggest Spartacus, but I think that may have been mentioned once or twice already :)

Have you seen Jason Momoa in Stargate Atlantis? He's quite warrior like in that...

Mandi said...

No! But people have been sending me pics of him in that show. Will check it out!
