This post on love-triangles at Ramblings on Readings made me wonder about my own personal preferences when it comes to a love story. How do you like them to play out? Do you like relationships that are already established? A love/hate romance? A love triangle? Maybe a slow burning romance?
I personally LOVE a romance that builds incredibly slowly. I like when the potential for the relationship is barely even there and that everything keeps the two characters apart. To me, as soon as a couple gets together, what comes after that is pretty boring in comparison. I love a love/hate romance and a forbidden romance. I love romances that make me arm-flap with excitement and squeal with the overload of cuteness. The longer it takes for two characters to kiss, the better in my opinion! I love the slow, intense build. I also love a romance where the girl takes a long time to see the guy as a love interest at all, so as a reader, we can fall in love with the guy as well.
Ah, I’m smiling just thinking about it!
How do you like your romance?
