The romance genre can be a bit intimidating to get into for the first time. Romance is such a broad genre, with so many sub-genres: erotica, paranormal, contemporary, historical, suspense, etc. Also, there are about a thousand different types of tropes, it can be kind of hard to find something you’d actually enjoy.
Since I have been on a romance spree for basically the last two months I’ve been thinking a lot about different tropes and which ones I like and dislike. These are a few of the “big” tropes to help some of you romance novices into trying out this genre. Also, I tried to find good recommendations for each one, even with tropes I don’t usually like.
