Welcome to the 32nd week of My Sexy Saturday.
We’ve always loved the song Underneath It All by Gwen Stefani. To us, it has always been about the beauty on the inside of a person. Outsides are important but if the inside is rotten to the core, what does a pretty face matter? Share with the readers just why your unlikeable characters are likeable and redeemable.
You know the ones we’re talking about. The demon who loves a woman. The vampire who will do anything to save the human he loves. Or just the plain Jane next door who becomes the most desirable woman on the planet. Share just what is underneath the surface.
Sexy can be those moments during a moonlit walk on the beach, a romantic dinner, flying a spaceship where your hero has been forced to be with the same tempting person for days. It could be two lovers gazing at those stars and dreaming of space travel…or a backyard pool…each and every moment spent learning what is inside a character is important to the readers.
Readers want to see what makes a character tick and what is inside that makes the character endearing. They love the first kiss in an unlikely match, the first time the characters make love or are just aware of each other. It can be the look shared across the room, the nerd who makes our heart pound, the construction worker who can’t wait to get in our hot tub or the fireman that we bought at the charity auction. Sexy has nothing to do with looks or status or even wealth. It doesn’t demand perfection and it isn’t pretentious but it does make us want to read those books.
We know that everyone has their own idea of sexy and we all love sexy!
