Somehow, through trial and error, they become the hero we want them to be. These are my favorite characters. Nothing shows love and devotion like a man willing to turn himself around, face his fears, tear down his walls, and give in to the notion of finding his soulmate. Let’s take a look at a few of the guys who’ve made a big impression on me.
- Snape in the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
Snape is the ultimate anti-hero. He’s cruel to our favorite wizard, he’s shifty, we don’t trust him. And in the end, he sacrifices himself to protect the son of the woman he’s loved—always. Snape got us right in the feels.
- Nix in Mercy by Debra Anastasia
Nix is dark and damaged. He’s a badass who hides behind his ink and stays anonymous in his line of work. All of this in the name of love for a girl who doesn’t know he exists. I’d say that’s dedication.
