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.
That said, here are but a few of the awesome himbos I've encountered in romance:
Note: There are quite a few more himbo recs in the Twitter thread pictured at the top of this post. I only listed the ones I've read here. Not saying the others aren't great--I just can't personally recommend them. (They're on my TBR list, though!)
