Top Ten Tuesday


 
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists. Each week they post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish answer.
Everyone is welcome to join.
 


This week we're focusing on the things that make us swoon and the things that make us roll our eyes in disgust when it comes to romance. 
I love all of my books to have a romantic theme but there are some books that are able to make me curl my toes and giggle like a school girl while others make me laugh at the stupidity of it all. 

Shall we begin?


THE 5 THINGS I LIKE MOST IN MY ROMANCE BOOKS

1. Save The Day Syndrome - I'm very much a damsel in distress type of girl so I naturally love it when the male love interest comes in and saves our lady MC's from danger. 
 
2. Tension - Whether it's from unspoken love or from misread signals I enjoy a book that makes the characters work for the end result of a fairy tale.  Leading them to believe it will never happen when in reality it would be the easiest thing to make come true.
 
3. Smooth Talkin' Sailor - *dreamy sigh* The best book boyfriends know all the right things to say, I'm looking at you Roth.
 
4. Kickass Girls - While I enjoy boys who save the day, I also enjoy a MC who knows how to hold her own and her male counterpart who knows how to let her do her thing.
 
5. Let's Talk About Sex Baby - I'm not a prude, I can do sex scenes, but I love the slow burning build up the best.  Sexual tension ranks up there with emotional tension!

THE 5 THINGS I HATE MOST IN MY ROMANCE BOOKS

1. Insta-love - "I just met you and this may be crazy, will you have my baby?" Slow it down Cinderella, you just met the dude last night and he's sporting some glowy eyes...maybe you should think about this!
 
2. Oh I'm sorry, I didn't realize you weren't your own person! - The lovers meet, fall in love, then can't even brush their teeth without the other one present.  Girl! Get a life!
 
3. Let's NOT Talk About Sex - Oh look, a sex scene.  Oh look, another sex scene.  I see where this is going, put your clothes back on. Are we going to be doing any talking soon??
 
4. You look good angry - I hate it when the guy is nothing but a jerk yet our female lead just won't leave him by the side of the road.
 
5. LOVE TRIANGLES - I love him but I love him but I love him but I love him. Nope can't do it.
