I would say, probably not very fun! I truly believe, of all the other sub-genres, opposites attract romances give you the most genuine glimmer of hope that true love exists. You can’t argue that even your best real-life relationships had to be the ones where you and your partner made each other see things differently. Life is just not as much fun if you are not challenged enough. If a story like this comes with sexual tension and great characters, point me towards the book and I’ll have my weekend sorted, right?
Well, people and the internet did point me towards a load of books and I took it upon myself to find the best of the best just for you. So, read on to find out my picks for the best opposite attracts romances out there. Why don’t you give them a read and I’ll wait for you to agree with me!
