A “slow burn” is basically a romance story that focuses on a character-driven love story where that relationship takes some time to develop There has to be a significant amount of development both for the individuals and for the pair throughout the novel, with romantic tension that builds and builds. I hope this helps!

I like that theres no run and it defiantly set more of a realistic bonding and not just two horn dogs wanting to get it on. Which is a big yes in my play book!
I do think they sometimes they get a little boring because it only focuses on them (i know thats kinda the point)
sometimes they kinda forget about the other characters and i am like “what happened to Susan?”

overall I would read one if it caught my eye!

that’s completely understandable. I think if slow burns were written better they would be a great story to read!

i love slow burns !! id definitely prefer them over super fast-paced, no character development stories. i just think it takes a lot of patience and dedication to get a slow burn plot just right, and a lot of authors may not have that patience.

I like slow burns as long as they are written well. They can get boring if there isn’t detailed plot causing issues along the way.

True, some just leave major plot holes.

I agree. I tend to hate the one’s where its “love at first sight” like girl what are you talking about? that isn’t love at first sight, that’s purely sexual attraction.
