One of the other writer’s on Romance Divas asked if we had any pet peeves when it comes to other people’s books. I read through everyone else’s, nodding my head in agreement with some, then added my own pet peeve. It really bothers me when I totally fall in love with a secondary character in a book and the author totally changes his character when he becomes the hero of his own book!
Like in this paranormal romance series I like to read, there’s this cool, hunky, hot vamp who was all laid back and fun, even using the word “dude” here and there. Well, I fell in love with him and couldn’t wait for his book. When his book finally came out, though, the author completely changed his character, turning him into a serious, introspective, almost boring hero. I was like, what the heck?! This is not the character I fell in love with!
So wrong, I tell you!
Anyway, do you have any pet peeves about other authors’ books? Inquiring minds want to know!
