Lately I’ve found that I have become bored….with handsome heroes. I don’t know why, except that in just about every novel I read the hero is devastatingly handsome. I remember when I was in college and my cousin and I came across a picture of some handsome actor and she looked at me and said, ‘chances are our husbands won’t look like this.’
Let’s be honest people, we’re not all going to think our spouses are breathtaking from the moment we lay eyes on them. And frankly, I’ve walked enough of this earth (and hopefully you have to) to realize that we’re not all going to marry the most attractive guy in the room.
But that’s not to say that most men are not without their attractions. Maybe they’re just ordinary initially, but once you get to know them they become breathtaking. That, is the kind of book that I want to read. Frankly, it helps to get rid of the insta-love and lust that often happens in romance novels
And so, has anyone read any books where the hero is not described as super handsome? Any ordinary heroes out there? Anyone else tired of the handsome hero?
