Dear Joey, Ben has fan mail & a trailer from Irene ~


 Dear Joey, I am in love with Ben O’Callahan … There, I said it! The first time I read Hostile Takeover was back in September, 2012. I think it took me a day or two to stop reeling from the story and then I read it again. I have since read it so many times that I lost count and even christened myself an “unofficial pimp of Hostile Takeover” because I want everyone [with an open mind] to experience this epic love story. Very few books touch me the way Ben’s book did. I’ve never had such deep feelings for a fictional character and I’ve never related to a story as much as I relate to Ben and Marcie’s. There are many reasons why I love Ben. I love that he is a challenge. I love that he makes you feel safe. I love that makes you feel sexy. I love that he is posessive. I love that he is a man of many talents. I love that he’s got a way with tools and I am not just talking kitchen utensils either. I love that he loves hard and most of all, I love the fact that he calms me down. Every time I need a ‘safe place’, Ben is my go to guy. I am not very good with words so I just wanted to say THANK YOU for creating perfection that is Ben O’Callahan. He is very special to me and I am thrilled that he is one the reasons I formed some amazing friendships within a reading community that blossomed into real life friendships. Always yours, Irene.

    Loved it Irene! Great job! Makes me want to go re-read it now and if I weren’t reading The Scientific Method I would, love Joey’s vampires too! 🙂

    I know exactly how you feel Irene! Hostile Takeover won me over.
    Your video is as kick ass as Master Ben <3 <3

    It made ME want to read the book again (lol). Irene, this is outstanding. Can’t even express how much of a gift you all are giving me today, and this is something I’ll watch over and over for inspiration. I think even Ben is getting a little choked up (the sentimental Irishman side of him can’t be suppressed forever). Thank you!!

    Irene, that was just beautiful, I’m tearing up with that video and your words are perfect. You were my pimp for HT, lol, and I’ll be forever grateful that you introduced me to Joey W. Hill’s writing. <3

    I know I am a few days late but I just wanted to say THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH for your kind words and a SPECIAL THANKS to Joey for creating such wonderful characters that stick with us forever and bring us together. I can’t stress enough how special this book is for me and I am happy to hear that I am not alone! xo

    I couldn’t sleep tonight , I played some music and when I heard the Demons song by Imagine Dragon , this trailer came in to my head , watch it again and ❤️ It even more

    Rose, I know how you feel! This song IS Ben. End of. I watch this trailer from time to time and, even though nowhere in the book does it say about Ben having facial hair, this guy has grown on me. A few days ago I went to look something up in the book and, naturally, ended up reading a couple of chapters picturing him as Ben. It was a nice visual 😉

    Damn, girl! Your vids are OTT in the best possible way! I hadn’t quite pictured M. Ben and Marcie, and I think you nailed it–even with that yummy facial hair. Above it says you are a pimp. You were my birthing coach, pushing me through this, at times, challenging book. And I did read on and got my questions answered!! So, thank you, Irene. I loved this book. I love Ben and Marcie. I love Joey W Hill, not as a psycho or anything. 🙂
