When it comes to male romantic leads, it can be a challenge to come up with descriptions that aren’t clichéd eye-rollers, particularly if the guy is supposed to be. . . shall we say, easy on the eyes?
It is all too common to rely on standard physical descriptions like chiseled jaws, and bulging biceps. That’s one of the reasons I love this description in Meant to Be Mine by Becky Wade:
He looked like living, breathing temptation, like a red-blooded male who drove a truck, had a strong appreciation for women, and drank testosterone for breakfast.
There’s just something about this description that tickled (okay, revved) my fancy – probably the hyperbole ‘drank testosterone for breakfast.’ And not only does it invite the reader to construct their own mental image, but we get a bit of insight into the state of mind of the observer too!
Mmm, mmm! Lucky I’ve got my own hunk to drool over 🙂
