To explain a little about what this post will be about, every Trope Tuesday post starts with the same introduction. In every romance book you read there are tropes or archetypes you find inside its pages. You can also see them in shows, movies, plays, etc. Every type of entertainment and media. Romantic tropes are everywhere, and they are fabulous. I adore them and I always tend to find my favorite ones in romance books so I can enjoy them even more. Trope Tuesday is a weekly column where I share books that I know people will enjoy with a specific central trope.
What is a trope? Urban Dictionary explains it best: “Despite the erroneous definitions already published here, trope on the interwebs really refers to an often overused plot device. It can also be described as another variation on the same theme. TV shows, movies, comics, games, anime’, & books are full of tropes & many rabid fan-sites now name & track said tropes with a self-explanatory title for each one.” We can name a few: accidental pregnancy, best friends to lovers, sibling’s best friend, marriage of convenience, and so many more. Your favorite couples? They probably got a trope too! It’s always so nice to realize or find out your favorite romance trope and keep searching for books with the same theme. So really? I’m just helping you find that new favorite book of yours. If ever you want a post on a trope I haven’t done yet, do drop me a tweet at @thebookvoyagers and let me know!
You all know meet cutes. When characters who are going to be in a romantic relationship meet for the first time! In many cases, it usually happens in a very cute, romantic, or hilarious way. But then you have other cases that show a meet disaster between the characters. And on those ones, the characters meet each other in a way that you think it’s so catastrophic they won’t be able to put it behind them and be together. But you can also find the love of your life this way!
You Had Me At Hola by Alexis Daria
This romance takes us to the celebrity world where we meet two actors who now have to work together in a new TV show. They have never worked together before so they’re kinda excited to meet each other, but their first meeting doesn’t go the way they planned. Because they bump into each other! Ashton then spills his coffee on Jasmine and messes up her clothes when they’re about to have their first table read.
Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert
In this book, Eve finds herself interviewing for a chef position at a Bed and Breakfast. Here is where she meets Jacob because he is the owner. But he isn’t impressed with Eve and basically tells her no, that he won’t hire her. So when Eve is about to leave, she accidentally bumps her car into Jacob, breaking his arm! The situation is so funny, it really sets the tone of how this book is going to be like.
With You Forever by Chloe Liese
Rooney needs some alone time and luckily enough her best friend tells her the Bergman’s family cabin is empty. But when she gets there, it’s clearly not empty. Axel Bergman is the one she finds there and he is not happy Rooney just appeared in his space. This sexual tension they both feel (but don’t know the other also feels it) is something they have been sensing for a while now. And now, alone and together, this might be the perfect opportunity to test it out.
This is a marriage of convenience, grumpy/sunshine romance that will light up your world.
