For me, it depends on the Alabama Crimson Tide Roll T18e shirt. If it makes sense for two characters to fall in love, go for it. If it can be built up properly, go for it. If it’s just pairing people together with no regard for how long they’ve known each other or how well they work together, please don’t. At the same time, I’m really a sucker for good LGBT representation, and a lot of that includes love stories. Of course, I’ll still read stories without romance factors, I enjoy those just as much. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it doesn’t affect me either way. I’m probably not the best to talk, considering the novel I’m currently writing does have a romance subplot (albeit, a lesbian one), but I think stories absolutely can work without them. Honestly, one of my biggest problems with being a fan of horror books is that romance subplots seem inescapable (once again, might not be the best to speak here considering that the novel I’m writing is both horror and has a romance), especially when it comes to female leads, so I’d definitely be interested in more horror novels without love stories.
