Here is a blog I wrote, that originally post on Guilty Pleasures. I love the topic and would love to know what influenced your love of HEAs.
A TALE AS OLD AS TIME
What Influenced Your Love of HEAs?
Recently I was watching Beauty and the Beast with my 2 yr old niece and I realized….THIS is where I first fell in love with Alphas and Happily Ever Afters.
I also realized why Beauty and the Beast has always been HANDS DOWN my FAVORITE Once Upon A Time/HEA. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Alpha men. Especially when they are guarded, grouchy and ill-tempered. The Beast is the ultimate Alpha male for me. I am also a hopeless romantic and watching Belle’s patience and sweetness with Beast, watching Beast fight his growing attraction to Belle, then let down his guard, open up to her, let her go because he cared for her so much even when it meant the curse wouldn’t get reversed. When he didn’t fight back against Gascon because he thought he’d lost Belle, all of these things make this a perfect romance in my books. I freakin’ cry every time he “dies” and smile every time he comes back as the Prince…..SIGGHHHHH!!!!
I love romances with a secondary cast that is caring, funny and loving and when the H/h find love when/where they least expect it…see where I’m going with this….they’re all components in Beauty and the Beast.
Beauty and the Beast is the Ultimate HEA for me and the fact that it shaped my love of reading and what I love/want in a man amazes me.
So there you have it, even though I am and have always been an independent woman, I want an ALPHA man, a man who will take control and I blame it on Disney and the Beast 😉
Has a Disney movie influenced you? Have you ever tried to figure out when or why you fell in love with romance?
