Note: All names will be taken from the top "Names" section of the Character Questionnaire.
Our strong, intelligent CEO leading man has never had trouble getting what he wants - and he definitely wants his new romantic interest. From his steel tower in the big city, to his paramour's leather-filled work place, our hero will stop at nothing to bring his new boyfriend into a world of sensual adventures. But as it turns out, the boyfriend is a lot more naive than he thought. Our CEO will have to become a mentor, and more, to get what he wants.
When entering the hero's first name, use the more formal version of his given name, eg., Timothy instead of Tim or Alexander instead of Alex. If you are purchasing this book for a married couple that now shares a last name, use the hero's original name. If you can't remember it, feel free to make one up. Unusual names like Bigglesworth are fine and are actually quite funny in the story.
When entering the hero's informal or casual first name, use the less formal version of his first name, eg., Tim instead of Timothy. If your hero does not have an informal version of his name, use the same name as entered in Hero's first name.
Descriptions of hair color, length and type are included within the storyline of the book - so select the basic description that best suits the person you've picked to be the hero. Not sure of the eye color? Many people select gray for those eye colors between hazel and blue. NOTE: We cannot add or change the descriptions that have been provided.
As our hero's personal assistant, she finds herself part friend, part employee, part partner-in-crime (sometimes literally). She puts up with her Facebook being taken over, extinguishes the fire in the bedroom, and takes regular "work vacations" without a complaint. At least the rewards are worth it - our hero's world is full of celebrities, and some just-as-hot civilians.
If you can't think of a "female friend" for the hero, don't worry! Select a public figure or Hollywood star.

Our hero's love interest is so pure, you could call him a Boy Scout - our hero certainly does. When he quite literally falls into the hero's life, he'll need all of his scouting skills to keep his head above the bathwater during their adventures. Along the way, he'll gain his footing, and maybe our hero's love.
If you can't think of a "love interest," relax - pick a Hollywood star or public figure. Let your hero fall in love with Neil Patrick Harris, Channing Tatum, Robert Pattinson, or any other hot celeb! (Unfortunately, you can only pick one!) Or pick a fun fictional character such as Homer Simpson or Don Draper.
Choose the commonly used first name for the person you have selected. For instance, use Rob instead of Robert if he is commonly referred to as "Rob."

Thanks to a sudden sick day, our love interest's best friend catapults his buddy into a life he never expected. The bold, lovable, sometimes-bossy best friend is always ready to support his pal, even when it pushes him further down a twisty road of domination.
If you can't think of a "Love Interest's Male Friend", no problem! There are lots in real life to pick from. Choose his favorite Hollywood star or a public figure.
