I will admit, I swoon a lot for many male heroes in books that I read. Unfortunately, it’s usually the “bad” boy type with a good (ish) heart–another term I would classify it, is an alpha male hero. And most of the time they were usually the ones that had a terrible first impression. I don’t know what attracts me to them, they just do. However, I know in real life it would be the exact opposite…(nice guys are so much better.) Some, I may want to punch in the face, while others I believe will require a restraining order. So here are just some that captured my heart and has made me shamelessly swoon for them, albeit, will only be in fiction.
Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries: Damon is the epitome of an anti-hero. He is capable of showing “humanity” especially when his loved ones are in danger. Unfortunately we only see glimpses of it. In the end Damon is selfish and you are most likely going to see him be involved in morally aberrant behavior. Sure he is a vampire, and at times his actions are justified; however, in real life he is someone you would consider a psychotic killer.
Aaron Warner from Shatter Me Trilogy: I’m talking about the Warner that we are first introduced to–regarded by everyone as cruel, sadistic, and obsessive. Warner was portrayed as someone psychotic, manipulative, and cold, although, this was all a facade and is a result of his childhood. Despite all of this, I think wouldn’t want a Warner. I feel like he’s someone who would only be nice to his girlfriend and not anyone else. Moreover, he comes off rather possessive. Sorry Warner, I love you but you scare me a bit.
Jace Wayland from the Mortal Instruments Series: First class pain in the ass. I will admit, I only read the first book, but I can’t deny how attractive he sounded based on the description (unfortunately I couldn’t say the same in the movie adaptation even though I used a gif of the actor…) While his banter with Clary was kind of cute, he would be insufferable in real life. He is kind of arrogant and annoyingly egotistical. He would be someone that I am most likely punch in the face.
Prince Ash from The Iron Fey Series: Cold-hearted (the irony) and mysterious when we first meet him–another bad boy. What’s worst is that in real life he is an ideal for most women— described as tall, dark, and handsome though a total jerk. Moreover, he is quite vengeful, and wants to kill his “ex-best friend” (though I think he wouldn’t really go through with it and would definitely regret it). Besides he’s a faery, it would never work out anyways. HAHA
Kyler Quinn from Frigid: A total man-whore. Sleeps with a lot of women to forget his supposedly “unrequited” love for his best friend, or so he believes. Definitely a no-no. Man up and express your feelings!
Gideon de Villiers from the Ruby Red Trilogy: Another certified jerk who I would most likely punch in the face as well. He is arrogant and very condescending. A complete snob who has no problem insulting people, even the person that he is attracted to. For me, this would be considered verbal abuse.
