I love a good male lead. He doesn't have to be the MC, either. But what makes a guy a good lead character? Here are some male leads I loved for different reasons:
Reese from DESTINY'S FIRE by Trisha Wolfe ~ He's seriously hot, totally intense, literally kicks ass, and risks everything for the girl he loves.
Jameson from NIGHT SKY by Jolene Perry ~ He's a total guy. I mean, seriously. He is the narrator, and his thoughts are so true to a teenage guy. But despite his urges, he is sensitive. (I might have a huge crush on him. *blushes*)
Seth from The Covenant Series by Jennifer Armentrout ~ He's the Apollyon, which gives him control over all the elements. He is edgy and despite his soft spot for Alex, he would hurt anyone he needed to or wanted to.
Henry from The Goddess Test Series by Aimee Carter ~ He's Hades. Do I need to say more? But he's not the "I can do whatever the hell I want" (Yes, that was a bad pun) portrayal of Hades. He pines over lost love and doesn't get involved in things he shouldn't.
They're all different, yet I fell for each of them because they stood out to me. The one consistent between them all was their conflicting personalities. Each is strong in his own way, yet vulnerable at the same time. For me, that's the key. I call it perfectly flawed.
Who's one of your favorite male leads and why?
