When it comes to books, we all have things that driver us crazy. Sometimes in a good way and other times not so much.
Here is what drives me crazy!
Reunion romances, enemies to lovers, and forbidden lovers. It seems like those have more complex conflicts and I really like that.
Amnesia plots. Those are just so much fun.
In erotic romance, I enjoy when one character walks in on the other one working themselves over, if you get my drift.
Love at first sight or they are destined to be together. That lacks conflict and I don't like that.
Secret baby plots, or marriage of convenience plots. Some authors can pull those off and make them work, but I think Harlequin has published so many books with this plot that if I see secret baby or convenient marriage in the blurb, I put the book down.
The super rich, super alfa hero, and the super nice and humble heroine. Sorry, I need real characters (or more realistic) in my stories.
The single dad and the woman who wants to play mommy. That plot became reality for me and it was more of a nightmare then a dream.
The big misunderstanding as the main plot. Sorry, that can be a sub plot, but it always fails as the big plot because it usually lacks conflict. Sure, some authors could pull it off, but most can't.
What about you? What drives you crazy in good and bad ways?
