Every reader loves a good book boyfriend. In recent times, there has been an insurgency of hot, likable, and swoon-worthy fictional men we can’t help but love. Book boyfriends refer to the male lead in books whom we imagine to be our imaginary boyfriends. They are usually insanely hot, rich, and dominant.
They are the ideal man. We don’t have to do or say anything. Just their bookish, sweet, and sassy presence is enough. They make us blush and squeal with all the gooey feelings. They embody the qualities we seek in our romantic partners.
They almost always do the right things. After all, they are fictional. But please do not let that stop you from real relationships! These men can provide a blueprint for real-life romance.
