Have done a bit of driving and a fair bit of reading lately and have realised there is one thing I absolutely DESPISE in romance.
I won’t tell you the two books that made me realise this but I’ll say one was a book chosen for my book club and another the second book in a US YA series. I adored the first book in this series but this one is irritating me. I WILL finish it because I loved the first book and want to see if it gets better but… well… maybe I should tell you what IT is that annoys me.
I HATE it when I can see NO GOOD REASON why one character would fall in love with the other. In the bookclub book, I couldn’t understand why the hero would stick by the heroine as she went through numerous problems, when she hadn’t given him anything back. No humour, no flirting, not much ”nice” at all really. In the YA book, I cannot warm to the hero and so far (I’m about a 3rd through) I cannot see why the heroine will fall for the hero, which she obviously will do cos it’s a romance. I get that he’s a BAD BOY but so far, I haven’t seen ANYTHING to like.
So, I’m curious… what’s YOUR Pet Hate in romance books???
