Bookish Boyfriend patient friend Stephanie Berget tagged me in her latest blog post and I'm finally following through by sharing this questionarie with y'all.

When I read her email I thought she was asking which is my favorite romantic hero - I don't have one - and I'd be in a world of hurt trying to narrow down the list. But what the meme is actually looking for is a hero of our own creation.

So here's how this works according to Julia Barrett:  We all have our favorite book boyfriends and now you have the chance to create one just for yourself and your fantasies! How do you play? Fill out the quiz bellow, post a picture of sexy man and tag five (5) other book addicts to do the same. Don’t forget to pop over to their blogs and let them know they have been tagged! Once tagged… you have to do the same, answer the questions and keep it rolling! But don’t forget the picture of the sexy man!

Here are the questions.

Hair color and style:  I definitely prefer brunettes.

Eye color and facial features: Glasses and facial hair. Stubble is like aftershave, a little goes a long way.

Height and body type:  I'm tall, often the tallest one in a room, and my husband is shorter than me. I figure height doesn't weigh in when you are horizontal. I don't like body builders. But toned with work roughened hands. Yum.

Visible age:  He has to be old enough to know his weaknesses and young enough to still want to be a better person.

Bangability?  Kinky?  Bi?  Etc?:  My desire follows where my heart leads.

Interests:  Reading, movies, mmm...something quirky like he can knit or bake, and most important is a sense of humor.

Human or Alien or Shifter?:  I don't believe in shifters or alien sexual compatibility...though I love reading authors who try to convince me otherwise. Human.

Paranormal skills: Immune to getting sick.

Natural habitat:  My bookish boyfriend can be found in the library, kitchen cooking dinner with the family and the bedroom.

Special skills:  It would be great if he was good with money or liked to shop. Either or both would offset my weakness in those areas.

I have created a lot of male characters (I write mostly m/m after all) so it is hard to share a single picture. This one is from Beautiful Mag. Warning: Not always safe for work. I love his lower back definition.

My five tags are blogs that I've followed for a long time. Marie Sexton, Val Roberts, Dee Carney, Lyn Gala and Rick R. Reed. Check out their sights and tell them I said hi. Hopefully they'll get a chance to join the fun.


  1. Stephanie, it was fun to put together and the hot pictures are worth the surfing to check out other sites. Thank you for tagging me.
