Good Sunday morning, my reading friends! 🙂 I have to confess… I am exhausted today lol. The nephew and all his adorable sweetness is in town this weekend/next week, and I’m coolaunting. It’s a full-time job. 😉 We went to a local orchard yesterday and had tons of fun … and some great cuddles too!
Those curls though! Man, I love this kid! And his hair.
Anyway… on to the topic for today’s Book Club.
This past week, I reviewed a couple of books featuring heroes that have a bit of the rogue in them – whether past or present. Dawn Crandall’s The Cautious Maiden & Vance Everstone (SWOON) gives us a redeemed rogue that becomes one of the swooniest heroes I’ve ever read. Sara Ella’s debut novel Unblemished gives us another bad boy who’s more than what he seems, and I’m totally #teamKy. Another of my fave bad boy heroes is Ty Porter from Becky Wade’s Meant to Be Mine (fanning) and Gray Carlisle in Catherine West’s The Things We Knew. And just wait for a couple of upcoming Pepper Basham novels featuring some bad boy heroes that make me grin like a schoolgirl with a crush.
So why do we love the bad boy hero so much? And for sure there’s a difference in the bad boy who’s really good at heart and the good guy who’s really a rogue once you see his true colors. The latter, I just want to purse whomp.
Ok, now it’s your turn. Why do we love the bad boy heroes? And who are some of your faves?
