Top Ten Tuesday: Things I Like When It Comes To Romances In Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish.

This topic this week is a pretty good one. It was a choice of likes or dislikes and I decided to go with likes because negativity is stupid! So here are some of the things I love when it comes to romances.

1. Friends To Lovers- I adore a well done friends to lovers romance. I just love how deep the connection is when the romance progresses this way.

2. A Good Guy- Bad boys are a lot of fun, but there is something special about books that have a truly good guy as the love interest. Those always end up being my favorite.

3. Forbidden- There is just something incredibly addictive about a forbidden romance and the danger involved.

4. Bad Boys and Good Girls- Yeah, this is kinda contradictory to number two and yeah this one is done a lot but honestly I LOVE a well done bad boy and good girl romance. There is a reason this trope is used a lot and that is because it just works. 

5. Banter- I adore good banter and it will always make me love the couple even more. 

6. Strong Chicks- I always like it when the girl is determined and goes for what she wants without being shy about it. I always admire that.

7. Chemistry- Yeah this one is obvious, but I love it when the chemistry between the characters just oozes off the pages.

8. Fallen Angels/Demons/Vampires etc- I am a sucker for a well done paranormal romance.

9. Flaws- I love when the characters have flaws and they accept each other for who they are and don't try to change them.

10. Angst- There is such a thing as too much angst, but for the most part I just eat it up!


  1. I'm with you when it comes to favoring the good guys. I'm with you on number 8. I'm a werewolf gal myself, but fallen angels and vampires will do in a pinch.

  2. Love your list. I also love good guys but love bad boy novels too....how does that work? Banter is one I forgot to put on my list. I love that.

    here's mine

  3. I love that you've focused your list on positivity! I agree with many of your points. I especially like some banter. My TTT

    My Top Ten Tuesday!

  5. I love angst in romances!It makes the love realistic,believable and emotional.

    Great picks.

    Here's my list

  6. OOohh great list! Why didn't I think to throw in the paranormal dude or chickie?! Didn't occurr to me. Guess because I was going off my love of paranormal books, so I listed the details I like/dislike seeing in them. It's a given! lol!

  9. I agree with all your choices. And yeah, there needs to be more good boys books out there. Love them!
