RomBkLoveDay10SmallSo, today is the most frustrating cockblock or coitus interruptus in a romance novel. Have you ever read a romance where it seems like every time the main couple starts to have sex they get interrupted? Sadly, I don’t have any examples of this, so I am expanding this to stories with a long and slow burn before consummation.

 

White Hot by Ilona Andrews - Nevada isn’t sure what to make of Rogan when they first meet, especially since he kidnapped her. It takes much of the first book for Nevada to start to trust Rogan. She has no intention of jumping into bed with him.

#RomBkLove Day 7 Favorite Dirty Talkers

Written by Jennifer Porter

RomBkLoveDay7SmallToday’s topic in #RomBkLove The Sexy Edition Day 6 is dirty talking characters in romance. Who are your favorites? Most of the ones I came up with are male characters, but there have to be some dirty talking women. I’m hoping that people know of some. Do you like dirty talking characters or do you wish they would just shut up? Also, please share some of your favorite dirty talking snippets if you can.

 

This prompt was not easy for me because I didn’t start keeping track of dirty talk until recenlty. But I do have some for you.

 

RomBkLoveDay6SmallDay 6 of #RomBkLove is all about multiples, menages or books where there are more than two main characters. Whether it is m/m/f, m/f/m, f/m/f, f/f/m, m/m/m, f/f/f, m/f/m/m/m/m/m/m/m/m or any other combination thereof, and honestly, gender doesn’t matter. If it is a romance about more than two people, it counts. What are your favorite menage romances? Do you remember your first? Do you have a favorite? Did you ever have to diagram a sex scene to figure out what went where?
