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!

I studied Literature in college and FOR SURE there were people who looked down on romance novels. I won’t bore you with all the dumb stuff they said about them because I’m sure you’ve heard all of them. *takes them to the trash* Those takes are tiresome and not worth it. I say all of this because when I encounter, in a romance novel, heroes who read romance and love it so much they have big shelves of romance books in their homes, I become enamored instantly. 

So I went to social media and asked my followers if they knew some books that had heroes who love and read romance novels. There were a lot of replies and I’m happy to see this grow. A romance book about romance books? Isn’t that the best thing you’ve ever heard? 

Take A Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert

Talia Hibbert’s upcoming amazing romance is coming out this month (6/23)! I am not lying to you when I say that this is one beautiful and swooning love story. Everything that Hibbert writes I fall in love with. It’s that simple. 

In fact, this is actually the book that made me go to Twitter and ask for recommendations because Zaf, the hero, loves romance novels and has a big bookcase filled with swoony stories in his house. His first meeting with the heroine is actually listening to a sexy scene (he’s reading an audiobook) and accidentally takes off his earphones and Dani, the heroine, hears that particular scene. He wants a happy ending just like the books he reads and is searching for it, hopefully with Dani. This book also has fake dating and it is GLORIOUS.

Meet Cute Club by Jack Harbon

Jack Harbon’s newest is just what the doctor ordered. A hero who reads romance novels? Meet Jordan. He also has a romance book club and he needs more people to sign up. If you have ever wanted your favorite author to release a new book and you’re just waiting for it to hit the retailers, you will relate to Jordan so very much. 

And the romance? The romance will give lots of sweet feels. Jordan meets Rex, the new employee at his local bookstore. And Rex has decided to sign up for Jordan’s Meet Cute Club.

You Out of Nowhere by Jay E. Tria

Meet cutes in trains!!! While he is reading Pride and Prejudice. Jay E. Tria’s heroes will always take your heart really easily and at the beginning of the story. When Ringo and Kris meet on a train, it’s clear both are attracted to each other but Kris is on her way to a blind date! We also have an age gap, but the heroine is older in this one. Kris is 31 while Ringo is 24, so if you have been craving older heroine/younger hero books, I recommend you pick this up! 

Blind Date with a Book Boyfriend by Lucy Eden

Meet cutes in bookstores!! You can’t go wrong from there. Lucy Eden’s novella is a short love story that will make your day and you won’t want it to end. An ode to romance books and authors! 

Jordyn is in California for a job interview and meets Mike at a bookstore where they hit it off. They don’t want to separate and go to lunch after. Mike is that cinnamon roll hero who reads romance novels, y’all.
