In a not so creepy way, we all have that one fictional heartthrob that’s in our heads as well as our hearts. Here at S&LF’s we have a few characters ourselves that we find swoon-worthy. Caution, they just might make you move your fictional heartthrob(s) to the side or add them to your list. Who says you can’t have more than one?

Christian Grey, Fifty Shades of Grey
Where to begin with this guy? He is a highly successful and charming businessman, but has a bit of an aggressive side that most women like Anastasia Steele swoon over. Upon first meeting him in the book Fifty Shades of Grey there were very few grey areas about this heartthrob. We knew exactly who and what he wanted because he holds nothing back. Potential good news here! With a movie release date right before Valentine’s Day, we can now put a face to this enticing fictional character played by Jamie Dornan. Do you think he’ll match up to the guy you pictured?


King, Hold Me in Contempt
His name explains his demeanor. Author Wendy Williams said on her talk show website that he is  “a perfect mix of Justin Timberlake and David Beckham, the man oozes sex and swagger.” She also described him as “bad to the bone.” We just love a bad boy don’t we? It’s just something about them that sometimes make us drool unfortunately.  Luckily for women our maturity and experience, those bad boys are lovers in our heads only.


Derek Roman (McKinley Freeman), Hit the Floor
Derek Roman is one of the star basketball players of the L.A. Devils and has an up and down relationship with a dancer he took interest in early during the VH1 show. Don’t you just hate those? He can’t seem to distance himself from one of the Devil Girls’ Ahsha Hayes after first spotting her at the dancer’s audition. They have a break-up to make-up pattern and the two just can’t seem to get it together. The steamy sex scenes featuring Derek’s sculptured abs provide a little clue as to why Ahsha might have a hard time letting the ball-playing lothario go.


Dominic (Michael Ealy), Think Like a Man and Think Like a Man 2
His ambition, his smile, his amazing cooking skills and those eyes are just a few reasons ladies can’t get enough of Dominic. Did I mention those eyes?  He is a hard-worker, dreamer, generous lover, and a loyal friend. He is an overall great catch trying to make things work in his relationship. 


Roy Rayder (Cam Gigandet), Reckless
Roy is a divorced father of two and a city attorney based in Charleston, South Carolina. He is the “what you see is what you get” type of guy. You can’t go wrong with simplicity and honesty. According to CBS, Rayder “embodies the Old South.” There is nothing like a good ole southern and charming gentleman.
