I have been reading a ton of books lately that have sooooo much internal dialogue. I don't want to hear in H's mind how the H/h are falling in love. I want to get to know the characters through real conversations and feel the connection myself...not just be told to feel it. So I'm looking for good romance books (I'm not picky..CR, YA, MA, etc). Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks! :)

Shae - Me, too !
I'd like to read a book where the story develops without a "stream-of-consciousness" inner meandering. And, where the heroine isn't constantly thinking the same thing over and over and over. Such as, "He doesn't love me. I have to leave." She doesn't leave. Then "He doesn't love me. I have to leave." She still doesn't leave. Bah, garbage.

I totally agree, D.C! I'll be anxiously watching this thread to see if there is such a book.

The only one that I can think of that was recommended to me on another thread would probably fall more into the erotica category (and it's shorter than I normally like) - but I loved the book. Lots of great dialogue.

Willing Victim by Cara McKenna

Edited to correct link. :(

Thanks for the recommendation - "A Willing Victim" looks really interesting, but no ebook edition available at this time. I'll put it on my Wish List, hopefully there'll be an ebook edition soon.

Really? That's odd. I bought the ebook version less than a month ago.

ETA: OK, I see I linked to the wrong book. Sheesh. Corrected now.

I am botherd by this too sometimes. I mean, right in the middle of a conversation with someone one of the characters will go off on some long internal dialogue or remembering something..... and then the conversation will just start up again a page or two later. I have to go back and read where the conversation left off and then skip back to where it picks up to make sense of it.
