As a reader of romance, you know him very well. THE SLUT.
Seriously?! Why do the majority of our male main characters have to be such over the top horn-dogs?
I get that sex is an important element to any good romance. But, when I’m first introduced to a guy who has to “date” outside of town because he’s plowed through anything with a pulse in his...I die a little inside.
Yes, our main guy is SEXY and ALPHA and has the anatomy of a TRI-POD, but does that mean he can't keep it in his pants?
And this especially bothers me when we’re dealing with a “fated-mates” situation. He knows that someday his one true love will show up, so what does he do to honor that inevitable situation and future soul-mate? Oh that’s right…puts his pecker in anything with a pulse. WHYYYYYY???!!!!!
Now, don’t misjudge me. I agree that bringing some experience to the table can be good for a relationship and the “bad-boy” persona can definitely be a turn-on.
Sure, the ultimate fantasy is that our partner knows exactly what to do in the bedroom and has the equipment to do it. But some author’s take it to extreme and a super slutty hero makes for a bumpy start.
Thank goodness supernatural’s don’t have to worry about disease or the majority of our fictional shifter-towns would be seriously low on penicillin.
