So, Twitter put out a call for hot himbos, and I felt the need to put together a "best of" list. That's just how I roll.
Some of you might ask, what's a himbo? Well, a himbo is a sweet, cinnamon roll of a hero. He's basically a golden retriever in human form. Think Chris Evans and/or Chris Hemsworth. In my mind, a great himbo in romance meets at least 2 of these criteria:
1. He's big, hot, and muscle-y
2. He's a nice guy. Sweet--never an alphahole. (That's not to say he can't be powerful. He's just not a dominating jerk.)
3. He might not be the smartest guy in the room, but he's not dumb, either (because THAT would be tedious).
4. He's HYPER aware of and in tune with his love interest. And if his partner wants to dominant him in the bedroom, he'll happily let them.

The moment when they realize they're in love is just... *chef's kiss* With that in mind, here are a few AWESOME good girl/bad boy romances:
