As Andrea, Gannon and PJ can attest, I am an easy target. Yes, I am one of those women who falls easily for the hero in any story, whether in a book or on a screen. I quickly find myself in the world of my hero, immersed in his story, and intrigued by his being. Once again this has happened to me, but this time I find myself falling for two men. Yes, TWO men at the same time and it is all because my husband introduced me to them.
I'm talking about the characters of "G" Callen (played by the adorable Chris O'Donnell) and Sam Hanna (played by the rock hard LL Cool J) from the television show NCIS Los Angeles. For those of you who don't watch this fabulous show (and you really should!) let me introduce you to these guys.
First, both guys are special agents for NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service). They work for the Los Angeles branch of NCIS. Needless to say they are both physical fit (have you seen the guns on Sam? Oh hello!) and they know exactly when to pull their guns ;-) Oh yes, sex appeal plays a part on this show and I'm happy it does.
I think I fell first for Sam Hanna (LL Cool J's character). Sam is a team player. He has a quick wit and an even quicker smile. And dimples always seem to make me melt just a little bit more. Not only does Sam have huge arms (hubba hubba), but he also has a huge heart and he is not afraid to show a bit of it. While Sam does leave a few things from his past a secret, there is not enough missing pieces to drive me to distraction. I only need to look at him (and his arms and dimples) to get distracted.
As for "G" Callen (Chris O'Donnell's character), it took me just a minute or two longer to fall for him. But I have to confess that I was head over heels for both these guys by the end of the first show. G is a man full of mystery and intrigue. He doesn't have a family, doesn't remember ever having one and the rumor around NCIS is he doesn't even know what his first name. Thus the letter G. To me he is the classic tortured hero. He needs a woman to calm his soul, to show him unconditional love, and to be he all in all. And that is what pulls at my heart and my soul.
So tell me ladies, have you jumped on the NCIS Los Angeles band wagon? If not, what could possibly be stopping you? If so, tell me if you have fallen for Sam or G or both :-)
