My Fictional Boyfriend

By Stella Shimmers All Rights Reserved ©

Romance / Fantasy


"What if one morning you wake up and see the fictional love of your life next to you?" Who says you can't love someone who is fictional? Ella Grace, an aspiring young author, can prove you can love fictional people and by that love, you keep them alive... How about a little plot twist? What if one day she wakes up in her bedroom, see Marvin, the main character of her book, and fall in love with him as she has while writing their love story? ~ Join Ella as she figures things out to become a successful author of her time, plus a journey with her almost perfect ideal boyfriend... the only problem: He is fictional.


In two silent strides, my fictional character was now standing in front of me. He cupped my face and smiled lovingly. I could feel his warm hands on my cheeks and his eyes bore deep into my soul. “Your love is the reason why I am here—the reason why I am with you. It keeps me alive—fuels my life.”

I shook my head, cursing my body’s betrayal for enjoying the contact of our skin. “But how can I love you if you are not real? When you’re simply a product of my imagination?”

“Just because I’m fictional, ’doesn’t mean you can’t love me. I love you, and you’re real... but I still love you. I am real because you make me real.” He couldn’t have said it any better.

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time.

NancyRichFoster: This second book of the Anmah Series was as awesome as the first story, I disagree with spare runner. The names were ordinary names with different spellings, which I for one loved. I am now going to read the third book in this amazingly awesome story!

Ro-Ange Olson: This is such a different romance story. I loved it. The book was very long and could be split into 2-3 books in my opinion, but I'd hate to have to wait to read the next part too.
