I'm writing a book in first-person perspective. There is no way I can change that. To change it to third-person would ruin it. Everything that goes on in my main character's world has to be told through his eyes or it wouldn't work. But there's another character: the love interest. She feels something too. It's something that I'd like to emphasize but I wouldn't be able to unless I could focus on her. (Note: This story is NOT a romance. However it does start out like one.) I know I can switch perspectives for a bit. But to me it is my main character's story. I don't EVER want to refer to him in third person. Ever. It would make it feel like he's become less important to me. Even if the readers wouldn't feel it, I would. I think I have a couple options: Option 1: I was thinking, I could do what James Patterson did in Maximum Ride. The story is in First Person, but when focused on a character different from the main, then it switches to Third Person. But this only works if the main character never enters into this second character's "world" so-to-speak while that scene is going on. Option 2: This is the one I REALLY want to do, but it would mean breaking the barrier between two characters. Have the story stay in first person, but allow the main character to focus on the second character. What she's thinking and feeling. The problem with this is that it will seem like he can read her mind, or is stalking her. Should I stick with Option 1 or 2? Is there a third option available to me? Is there a way I can pull off Option 2 without the audience getting confused? Help?
