I am really, really tired of the 50 shades inspired covers. Or actually, what I am most tired of is the fact the publishers seems to not think about the fact that the cover is supposed to tell something about the book. But, I guess it is cheaper to photograph a fruit or a shoe, than arranging a photoshoot with a couple. ( Oh, and fruits makes me think about food, not romance.)
Or maybe I am just old fashioned.
I like contemporary romance, but I am a bit tired of the fact that lately all of them seems to be set in small towns. Yes, I get that they are quaint, and that authors like to use them as setting since they have a lot of hidden conflicts and secrets. But guess what? That’s the case for every residencial area, no matter if it is just a block or if it is a town. So, how about expanding the views and using a city or a suburb as the setting.
The Alpha Billionaire jackass trend:
I love strong, caring Alpha males, both Doms and non-Doms. The keyword is caring for me, since without the caring, they are just jerks. That said, if an author shows WHY the hero is a jerk, I am much more forgiving. If not, I’ll pass. And I am unlikely to read another book by that author, unless it is an autobuy author.
