#BookBlogWriMo: Favorite Book Tropes - Day Seventeen
Favorite Book Tropes
My all time favorite tropes have to be about bikers, rockers, and for some reason really rich CEO's.
Does that make me shallow?
Probably. But the story does seem to go better when they're not fighting tooth and nail to get by. Real life seems to do that to us. I mean, don't get me wrong, each angst ridden story has it's ups and downs, but sometimes the best trope is when it is an external conflict instead of internal between the two main characters.
Bikers - my favorite brand of biker by Kristen Ashley. She set my gold standard for those burly guys...and made them super hot. #RideFree bae.
Rockers - I have no artistic talent whatsoever, so I LOVE stories about people who do. Music is my next love after writing, and I really wish I had went into PR so I could have gotten hired as a personal assistant to a rock star at some point. (Though, living in the midwest probably hindered this plan more than my chosen career path of nursing...)
Rich CEO's - C'mon. Love it, or hate it, (though I kind of loved it) Fifty Shades helped put erotica on the map of success. I can't even explain to you why I love these so much, but I will read it every single time that Shel says, "Hey, what about this one?"
This is going to sound like I'm trying to cheat--but I swear I'm not...I really don't care. I'm becoming more interested in seeing more diverse characters in my fiction. I'd like my immersion into another world to include more variety--more color, more sexually diverse characters, and a variety of storylines. Other than that, I want good writing. I'll follow you anywhere if you write the hell out of your book.
