One thing that’s been surprising to me after my first book was published is the number of men who are willing to read it. It is a romance. So far I know of two men who have read it or they said they did. And a couple others are claiming to be reading it or plan to read it. That’s cool.
No, I didn’t ask them about the hot scenes. Funny thing is I like hearing what the women think about them. Usually, that consists of “Oh, wow! That was hot!” But I would feel a little uncomfortable discussing any aspect of those scenes with a man besides my husband. Now if I could get him to read it (NOT!), I’d gladly talk about them.
Does your husband, boyfriend or special male friend read romances? I think men who do are very smart.
