The other day I was telling my husband about the book I am working on. I was bouncing ideas off him, and he was giving me the weirdest suggestions. I finally had to stop and ask him what the hell he was talking about. Turns out when I mentioned Bears. He thought I was talking about this!
He didn't even blink at my topic of conversation and assumed that I was talking about big burly gay men. I'm so blessed to have such a supportive husband! (on a side note I do love this picture). In fact, this book features a trio of brothers who have the ability to shape shift into bears and are about to meet the woman they have been waiting for.
As I sorted through pictures looking for inspiration I noticed there is a distinct difference when it comes to some pictures. Take this one for instance...
Now, he is very pretty and all those beautiful muscles oiled to perfection. This is a romance novel I'm writing and everything is on the large size. ;) And, let's face it there are some very pleasant hygienic bonus to a man who stays groomed.(Coughing up a hair ball in the middle of a blow job is not a pleasant sight for anyone.)
Then there are the pictures with just a tease of hair. Peach fuzz if you will. Something that will tickle your tongue or cheek as you trace out those muscles. Peeking next to his fingers, I suspect he keeps himself groomed and tidy
There is something to be said about a man who looks like a man. Or is it because I'm Canadian and it's so damn cold up here for most of the year that I like to have someone extra warm to cuddle up to? The ticklish feeling of crisp dark chest hair under your fingers or brushing your sensitive breasts as he hugs you.
As with many things in life, beauty is in the eye of the beholder? Do you have a preference?
Burly hairy men vs. waxed perfect models? I'm curious what it is you like and why. :)
After all these pictures I couldn't leave out my boys who started all of this.
Let me introduce you to the men who are currently occupying most of my imagination at the moment and the heroes of the book I'm working on,.
