What’s Your Sign, Baby? by Amy Andrews

by Amy Andrews, author of Innocent “til Proven Otherwise (Harlequin Presents Extra, June 2012)

Hello everyone and welcome to my first blog as a debut Presents author – I have appeared here before a few years ago when one of my medicals (The Italian Count’s Baby) was released in the US as a Presents Extra. Yes, until last year I wrote exclusively for the HMB medical line but am very proud and excited to see my PE Innocent “til Proven Otherwise releasing in the states this month.  This is being followed by a January US release next year of The Devil and the Deep (aka my pirate book)

The opening scene for ITPO has been with me for a long time. I actually cut it from another book but couldn’t bear to part with it thinking/hoping I could use it one day – and what do you know? 🙂 It’s a bar pick up scene involving two people who are not in the mood to be set up, being set up by their best friends.  I loved writing this scene – even a couple of years down the track it still made me smile.

And it got me to thinking about pick-up lines. I”m a girl who married her high school boyfriend so I can’t say that I’ve been subjected to too many pick-up lines but I do love them. There’s something so hopeful about them – even the corny ones. I think it takes an enormous amount of courage for a guy to go up to a girl and ask her out so I say bravo to them!

With such limited personal experience, I turned to the great god Google to find a few pick-up lines to share with you – the cute, the cheeky and the desperate.

The cute

Your eyes are bluer than the Atlantic Ocean and baby I”m lost at sea!

If you were a burger at McDonald”s you”d be the McGorgeous.

I must be a snowflake, because I”ve fallen for you.

You’re so beautiful you made me forget my pick up line.

Hi, I’m Mr. Right–I heard you were looking for me.

If you were a laser you would be set  to stunning.

The  cheeky

People call me John, but you can call me Tonight!

Do I know you? Cause you look a lot like my next girlfriend.

Are those space pants?

Because your ass is out of this world!

Let”s have breakfast together tomorrow. Shall I call you or nudge you?

The desperate

If a fat man puts you in a bag at night, don”t worry–I told Santa I wanted you for Christmas.

I can”t think of anyone else I”d rather survive a Zombie Apocalypse with.

Here”s $10. Drink until I am really good looking, then come and talk to me.

I”m going outside to make out… care to join me?


Heard any good pick-up lines lately?

    Best cheesy pick up line:
    Did it hurt? Did what hurt? When you fell from heaven.

    Congrats on your debut, Amy!!!

    And I love the pick up lines. My favorite? “If you were a laser you would be set to stunning.”

    I’d fall for that, any day of the week.

    Hi Amy!!! I LOVE those pick-up lines – best early morning giggle of the month 🙂 I can’t think of any to top those ones – they’re actually all very cute. I think I must be a sucker! But you know, I think the $10 drink ’til I’m cute guy is a bit optimistic – lol Maybe he should give her more!!!

    Congrats on your Presents debut!!!!

    I love this story, Amy. Congrats!

    Had a really interesting bar conversation with a fellow once. He did the eye thing for most of the night and then at the end said, ‘Why don’t you come here again tomorrow night? And this time leave your boyfriend at home.’ Classy 😉

    Lovely to meet you here again Amy, and this time with your fabulous new Presents release. A beautiful, heartwarming,funny, sexy story I adored! Your readers will adore it too!
    And oh for sure. You do have to feel some sympathy for guys and the pressures of the pick-up. Mind you, I don’t think its any easier for girls to be creative…
    *Are you by any chance a Saggitarian?*
    *Would you mind holding my drink while I adjust my suspenders?*

    One of my favs:

    Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?

    (My hubby’s pick up line was “American girls are easy.” He had a lot of ground to make up after that…)

    Lol Natalie – there is NO way $10 would get me lubed enough to think a guy was cute. One cocktail? Cheapskate! 🙂

    Oh Kelly – very classy!
    I have to confess to loving the eye thing – I think its called the copulatory stare. Oh the anticipation….

    That’s tres cute, Kimberley!
    I hope your answer to your husband’s line was “this one isn’t!”

    Hey Amy! OMG, what great fun are those lines???!!! And I’m so with you, what guts it must take to actually deliver them.

    Love the idea of a set-up where both parties are toootally not keen. It’s got me hooked.

    Welcome to Presents!

    How about…
    “Excuse me. I’m from the FBI, the Fine Body Investigators, and I’m going to have to ask you to assume the position.” =)
    I loved the first scenes in this book, Amy! In fact, thought the whole book was a terrific (hot!) read.
    Congrats on your debut here!

    Hey Ally – thank you 🙂
    I’ve always admired men for trying. Especially having to approach a woman if she happens to be with a group of her girlfriends. We are really NOT kind to men en masse!
    I think about it more now my son is 16 knowing he’s going to be out there soon and he’s so sweet and nice I think he’s going to be stomped on a lot 🙁

    Ooh Robbie. Assuming the position….. Think that goes in the cheeky group!

    Loved those lines, Amy! My DH’s first words to me were ‘Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps, please…’ (And there’s a Splodgenessabounds song of exactly that title!)

    Welcome to Presents. They’re going to LOVE your voice 🙂

    HI Anna! Thanks so much for your lovely compliments on the book.
    I think you’re right – pick ups aren’t easy for either gender.

    lol Kate – who knew you’re hubby’s pick up line would be so famous one day that song writers would be using? 🙂
