Claire Kingsley (clairekingsley) | 78 comments What's your reader CRACK?

What tidbits, tropes, character types, or themes make you one click the hell out of a book? Big things, little things? What do you eat up with a spoon?

I love bromance, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, grumpy heroes, wounded heroes, snarky or sassy heroines... my list goes on and on.

What about you? What's your reader crack?

Our aim was to write something not vulgar at all, but full of what is known as "erotic anticipation". It was mine state of mind for sure, every night, when we started to write a new scene 😁

No worries there, it was well written and as a reader you were always anticipating what was going to happen next and that was not just the sex, which was nice but it was the story in itself. You wanted to know what was going to happen and you wanted them to be able to be happy.
