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!
Teach me how to sex stories always lead to very interesting stuff in romance books! They always manage to stay in my heart after I finish the book. It’s so great to see the evolution of each of the characters, both with their own set of goals, and that together they form a better team than apart. One is always the “teacher” in the relationship who is going to give some lessons to the other character. But when they think this is only casual and that at the end of the deal they’re both walking away, joke’s on them, because they realize during this time that they have developed feelings!
Daddy Crush by A. Anders
As soon as I started this book, it caught my attention and my heart. I always want more daddy kink romances, so when I saw Adriana Anders was releasing a new one, I was so very excited for it. And then people were talking wonders about it, so I couldn’t not pick it up
Karl’s new neighbor is thirteen years younger than him. She’s a quirky, very sunshine-y, artsy person and he is… not. He’s stoic and kinda grumpy, but he cannot help be attracted to her. When she asks him to teach her how to sex, he instantly thinks it’s a bad idea, but he accepts. This new relationship will change both their lives in that moment!
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
Helen Hoang’s debut made my year. A male escort and a rich business woman? Sign me up, right? This book only gets better and better, and the ride you will have while reading it will be forever inside your head and heart.
Stella has been successful in every side of her life, except in love. So she decides to take some lessons with a very handsome escort. He can’t afford to not take this deal, so that’s how their relationship starts. Soon their partnership starts to feel like something else entirely and both don’t know what to make of it.
Debauching the Virgin by Mel Blue
Mel Blue is a favorite of mine and this romance will bring you a matchmaker heroine and a virgin hero who have big chemistry between them!
Amelia is a very successful matchmaker, but her love life isn’t that great. She accepts the offer from the Den’s kink orchestrator to pick a sexual partner for a week. Her new partner is ready to learn everything she teaches. But at the end of the week, she will walk away. Or that’s what she thinks…
