So you love a Bad Boy or Tortured Hero

These lovely men with issues are scarred either physically or emotionally, most are bad boys, very alpha-male and hard to love initially but so worth it in the end.

message 12: by Buggy (new)

Buggy LOL SeptemberTenth, welcome to the club, I've read 37. What does that say about us?

I think we're already in too deep so we may as well go the whole way now.

Jill Graceling's Po is a bad boy/tortured?

Right? That's what I was thinking. It was like those western movies where the man returns from war and just wants a kind person to take care of them. Except Po wasn't the soldier in this case.


message 30: by Jill (new)

Jill There's someone missing... Twitch anyone?


message 31: by Sharoza (new)

Sharoza Heavens! I can't believe I've read 90 of the top 100 books! What am I doing with my time? Would I have it any other way? Hell, no!!


message 32: by Booklovinglady (last edited May 27, 2016 10:48AM) (new)

Booklovinglady I came across Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and was wondering whether Severus Sneep or Sirius Black was meant, as they are both adorable :-) Must be Severus Sneep though, as later on I found both Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as well on this list :-)
