Every year our reading “likes” change a little bit and in 2014 there were some book tropes that we seemed to want more and more of! Check out how our tastes compared to yours this year and let us know what you couldn’t get enough of in 2014 in the comments.
Enemies to Lovers
I think we can all agree that a little dislike just adds to the spice. And there’s nothing quite a good angry sex scene or two for good measure. This year there this seemed a popular choice in our reading and definitely something we want more of!
Forbidden love. You read them and wonder how can you be ok with this. But nevertheless, we were glued to the pages of these somewhat disturbing at times, love stories.
if there is one mythical creature that continues to shine during the onslaught of Contemporaries out there, it’s the big, bad, fire-breathing dragons!
Best Friend’s Sister
What’s worse than lusting after your best friend’s sister? Totally off limits, but totally hot. We adore these books that explore those conflicting feelings!
Friends to Lovers
You share laughs and cocktails but beneath all that, you two share some feelings for each other too. Who can say no to a friends to lovers story where you can root for the characters as they FINALLY fall in love?
Rock stars are doing more than just taking the stage, they’re also taking the Romance world by storm!
Charm and sweetness will always be in abundance in these fictional small-town packed with quirky characters and fun-loving antics.
Rekindle PNR Love
One of our first passions has always been paranormal romance, but in the past few years it seemed contemporary stories were taking over our reading time. This year we’ve rekindled our love affair with everything paranormal. Some of our favorite authors had amazing books come out this year that knocked our socks off! We are rejuvinated in paranormal and can’t wait for 2015!
THE KING BY J.R. WARD, SHIELD OF WINTER BY NALINI SINGH, DARK SKYE BY KRESLEY COLE
There really isn’t anything better than a heroine that takes life by the horns and dominates situations. With their take-no-shit attitude and go-for-what-you-want approach to situations they have always been the type we look for and this year it was no different.
Sometimes you’re just in the mood for something that will break your heart just a little. Or a lot. Maybe you were just needing something dark, or you needed to cry. And you can always count on a heart breaker to test your limits and put you through the ringer.
