I was re-reading one of my favorite books last week, and I got to a part where he does something that I like to call…The Grand Gesture…
You know what I’m talking about right?!? It’s one of those fabulous moments where my fantasy boyfriend does something so super special and amazing for
me his lady that I just fall in love with him all over again.
Granted…most of my literary loves happen to be quite wealthy…some obscenely so, and their grand gestures can be quite over the top, but not always…sometimes they’re smaller…more intimate.
For the next few weeks I’d like to share a favorite grand gesture or two…both big and small from my favorite guys, cuz…you know my philosophy…c’mon…say it with me now…sharing is caring ;)
That’s right…so let’s get to it…
Professor Gabriel Emerson: This man knows how to say just the right thing with flowers, love notes, and homemade apple pie. Yup…he can do the smaller things that make a gurl appreciate having him for a boyfriend…no doubt about it. But ladies…when this fantasy boyfriend wants to make an impression?!? He does it with style…I mean c’mon…can you even begin to imagine having the Royal Ontario Museum all to yourselves for a private birthday celebration?!? MmmHmm…a bartender to whip up the libation of your choice…lots of lovely artifacts and treasures to admire…alcoves to explore…Yup…sign me up for this grand gesture ;)
Kellan Kyle: There’s something very sweet about Kellan…although he’s hot enough to make your temperature rise with just one word…Mornin’. Kellan is a cuddler, a hand holder, a hugger. O yeah… he’s definitely into the whole touching sense…I love that about him. He has a bit of money but you wouldn’t know it by his lifestyle because he’s a very low-key kind of guy. He’s the type of man who does the little things that make me swoon. Need a ride somewhere? Want to hang out and relax in a park? Kellan’s your guy then…but hold on…he can make a grand gesture with the best of them. How would you feel if this guy arranged to spend a little alone time with you up in the Seattle Space Needle?!? O…yes he did. This is a grand gesture that I’d appreciate anytime.
Let’s hear it for our favorite literary boyfriends (and the authors that gave them to us) for all of the swoonworthy moments created by… The Grand Gesture ;)
Next week I’ll share a couple more of my faves…
