When it comes to a favorite genre, hands down, I love a good romance. There can be other aspects and a storyline that isn’t romantic, but there does have to be romance. I don’t even mind if it’s a historical novel though that has to work harder to keep me curious since it’s a contemporary romance that I like best. However since we tend to feature books that fit in this genre quite a lot, I’m mixing things up and talking favorite contemporary romance tropes which is my favorite genre. (Although, to be fair, depending on the novel, some of these could apply to historical fiction, too.)💞THE FAVORITE FICTION TROPES IN MY FAVORITE GENRE💞 TALKING CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE FAVORITE TROPES. #ROMANCEFICTION #ROMANCENOVELS #ROMANCEBOOKS #ROMANCEREADS #ROMANCETROPES #TROPES #FICTION #GOODBOOKS #TOPTEN #TOPTENLIST #TOPTENTUESDAY Click To Tweet
This may be something I regret since I’m always scrambling to find topics for weeks where there is none or weeks when there’s a rewind topic. Nonetheless it’s simply too repetitive to keep sharing the same books. So, hopefully this one is a little different. I’ll talk about a few of my favorite tropes and then share some I’d like to read more of, and you can recommend your best books fitting the genre.
CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE FAVORITE TROPES in my FAVORITE GENRE
FRIENDS to MORE
Always love a good being friends to becoming a couple romance. Sometimes it doesn’t go well because it’s full of missed changes and refusal to tell a person how they feel. Still, I’ve read some good ones.
MARRIAGE of CONVIENCE
This one has always been a favorite of mine. It can be done really badly, but when it’s done well, it can be a whole new door to an emotionally satisfying romance. All of which tend to look deeper than the average “falling in love” trope.
I do love a good pen pal story. This is one that I could put in the category of “reading more,” but I have read some and they’re usually quite sweet.
TROPES to READ MORE of
HERO in UNIFORM
I’m a softie for a good military hero. But I don’t think I’ve read many with this trope. This goes hand in hand with the idea of a hero who protects, something that doesn’t have to come at the expense of a lesser heroine.
Though it’s really sad, I’d read one or two romance novels where someone lost their love or a spouse and falls in love again. The ones I’ve read have been written very well.
I love a cute romance where there’s a mistaken identity. Like the arranged marriage, this one isn’t always done well but when it’s good, it’s good.
Who doesn’t enjoy a cute secret admirer romance trope?
I like the idea of a romance where there’s goodness to a relationship or one of the people in the duo seems opposite of the other, and there’s things working against them but they prevail anyway.
