Welcome to day 23 of #BookBlogWriMo! What a lovely topics we have today…book boyfriends. 🙂
Squee! What a lovely topic we have here today. What do you look for in a book boyfriend?
When I read the physical descriptions for characters, I have a few go-to men. They’re men that I not only find gorgeous, but I also know what their voices sound like, mannerisms, etc., So even if they don’t fit the physical description perfectly, I prefer picturing one of them because I can better visualize the character’s conversations, expressions, etc.
Those gorgeous men include:
- Matt Bomer (for the love of all that is holy, have you seen Neal Caffrey and his three-piece suits?)
- Henry Cavill (whenever someone mentions dimples or a climbable chest)
- David Gandy (tall, dark, handsome, and gentlemanly)
- Joe Manganiello (tall, dark, handsome, and not such a gentleman)
- Eddie Redmayne (ginger book boyfriends, freckly book boyfriends)
- Julian Morris (that good guy/boy next door look)
- Jesse Williams (gotta love milk chocolate with light eyes)
- Alex Pettyfer (the only blonde guy on my spank naughty list)
- Dylan O’Brien (for the boyish looking book boyfriends)
- Beau Mirchoff (young but built)
My Eye Candy board on Pinterest (something I’m really proud of) has much more variety, but these are my go-tos.
Now, when it comes to personality, I like book boyfriends that are:
- A little bit (or a lot) nerdy
- Yet is still a dirty bird (both in terms of dirty talk and crude sense of humor)
- Playful and immature
- Gotta love that banter
- Has a good voice or can play an instrument, but isn’t a musician
- Entrepreneurs and business-savvy are sexy (as long as they’re not even more of a workaholic than I am)
