Now sure,I love me some hardcore alpha as much as anyone else does....
And yes,the storyline of the good girl reluctantly being seduced into the erotic world of said hardcore alpha WAS a fun ride...."WAS" being the key word!
At least it WAS for the first of the 4-5 books I read that followed this formula....
But, now it seems that just about EVERY book I've picked up in the past 3 weeks I find that authors can't seem to resist relying on this OVER USED theme.
As I try to get into reading a lot of the recommended books I just find myself muttering
"Yeah, yeah,Big surprise> hero is a troubled millionaire into BDSM
"Yeah, yeah,Oh and Golly Gosh that heroine sure is such an innocent girl>
I can't imagine what will happen next"
Thus my quest for the elusive three R'S began....:
"Refreshing Relief Reading"
You know the type>
something surprisingly different and "UNBURDENED"..
Something that Doesn't require me enduring the reading of the next stale submission scenario just to get to the heart of the story (if there even is one)!!
Help is needed from those who have escaped this mind numbing vortex:
Any Romance subcategories welcome:
Maybe silly but satisfying ? ..
Maybe a romantic fantasy or paranormal
Maybe a contemporary that's just a little offbeat?...
Maybe an "oldie but a goodie"
or maybe your favorite palate cleanser go 2's that had you laughing or smiling or just remembering with a sigh?
Enjoying "Wallbanger" by Alice Clayton got me started on this mission and led me to now finding"Holly and Her Naughty E reader" by Julianne Spencer.
(currently offered free ).
So far "Holly and Her Naughty E reader" has been a surprising delight!
Which led me to asking here on this forum>
Where are all the stories from authors who think outside the box?
