To kick things off, I thought we’d discuss favorite story themes. One of mine is the Friends to Lovers one. I’ve never sat down and really analyzed why I love it so much, but I think it has a lot to do with the bond of trust that’s already apparent between the two characters. And when that bond changes into love, it’s so deep, so rich, so solid—these two know each other inside out, good and bad, and they still love each other. What’s not to like?
Mine to Possess has the friends to lovers element in it, and it’s a big part of why I loved writing this book. Clay and Tally know each other so well that the normal barriers between a courting couple don’t exist for them—they lock horns from day 1, no holds barred. And boy was it fun watching someone get under Clay’s skin so easily. *grin*
What about you guys? What are your favorite romance themes? Conversely, is there a theme or storyline that just does not work for you?
