Character Spotlight: Shane McAllister


My character spotlight this week is one I have been dying to write for some time, but I was holding off until I read the final book in the series. So who am I talking about? Shane McAllister of course from the WVMP Radio Series by Jeri Smith-Ready. If you drop by a lot, you know that I adore this series and Shane so it was only a matter of time before I rambled about him. 


Shane McAllister is a schmexy schmexy vampire, who is somewhat stuck in the 90’s, has a slight obsession with sorting, and idolizes Kurt Cobain. He likes to wear flannel shirts and do not even talk about the Foo Fighters in front of him. He plays the guitar, has a killer voice, and has a bit of a dark edge to him. Shane is just a character that you are immediately drawn to. 

The moment Shane started sorting Ciara’s CD collection I just knew he was going to be a character I would enjoy. There was just something so sweet about him in that moment and then he followed it up with a not so sweet, but still really great, moment. Shane has moments of boyish charm that melt your heart and then he has some incredibly hot moments that melt your heart for different reasons. Also, Shane gives some of the best romantic speeches ever. See, Ciara forgets some important things every now and then, and Shane has to remind her. When he does this, oh my, it is just the best. The things that come out of his mouth are just perfect. I swoon each and every time. 


Shane is probably the only person who could get through to Ciara. She is a tough one to crack, but somehow Shane manages to get under her skin. The two of them work well together. They are a couple that will really do anything for one another. I love the way they complement each other and how they bring out the best in each other. 


Shane is a character that I never get tired of and now that the series is completed, I cannot wait to go back and meet him all over again. 



Favorite Shane Quotes: 


“I love you, too, with everything I have. With every last f*cking piece of me, I love you.” -Bring On The Night 


“It’s that simple because you, Ciara Griffin, alone and unadorned, are everything I need in this world. Mortal or immortal, old or young, I cannot and I will not live without you. If it was ever possible before, which I don’t think it was, it’s not now.” –Lust For Life 


“I have a method for handwashing dishes, too. I have methods and routines for things you can’t imagine. Over the weeks or months or, God willing, years, you’ll discover them, one by one. There’ll be blood in the fridge, and notes and charts on the fridge, but there’ll also be music in the living room, and the bedroom. I’ll never bring a donor home, and I’ll never forget to walk the dog when it’s my turn. Sometimes I’ll even walk him when it’s your turn. I promise you all of this.” –Bad To The Bone

  2. Unff. I freaking love Shane. He's perfect perfect perfect. But he's not unrealistic, if that makes sense. I think you've described him to a T, and the quotes you selected were awesome.
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. OH MY GOSH!! I think I just might steal this hotsauce cupcake from you Teresa darling! And those quotes, especially that last one, I LOVE them!!! Shane sounds incredibly amazing, and unique. I can't wait to meet him "in person" so to speak and I think I'll really come to like his quirky habits. You just keep piling reasons on why I should buy this series! And you know what, I know what my next book buy will be! I really enjoyed this!
