"...I like the water and hot man combo."
- Enchanting Ella
Chocolate is not a huge necessity in my life, however for some strange reason when the holidays roll around my body gets this craving and urge to eat all things made of chocolate. This year however, I’m doing my damndest to try to avoid packing on the winter weight and staying on track with my weight loss program. Which leads me to the choice between plain candy or man candy. This year, I choose man candy.
With man candy there is no weight gain. In fact, you might even lose weight by ogling over all the pictures of HOT men. You could burn calories from all of the brain waves and body reactions. My idea of man candy is defined as cut muscles, clean, tan and oiled up. There are the usual blondes, brunettes and black haired beauties and, of course, the affectionately dubbed gingers or red heads to be politically correct. Bald is also gorgeous candy on occasion. There are a variety of choices. The human body is such a wonderful and beautiful miracle how could you not love to look at all of its curves and fine lines?
Now that we’ve discussed the bodies, who doesn’t love finding out when the fine specimen actually has a great personality and some form of intelligence? That’s just like the icing on the cake or the caramel center in a fine chocolate.
Romance books allow us to take our version of man candy and make the story come to life. Having a great visual can make the story seem more real. I recommend searching for a great picture to represent the character in your book and keeping a mental picture of them as you read your next Romance book. It definitely helps me with my visualization.
Who's your favorite man candy?
