As romance readers, we often joke about book boyfriends—the heroes we get all weak in the knees over. But what about the women? We invest so much time with the heroines in our favorite series, it’s like we know them well enough to raid their closet before heading out for the night.
Each book release is a reunion with your college best friend. But each time you get together, she tells you this story that leaves you crushed. She dated this awful guy, but don’t worry it’s over. Wait, he’s not as awful. She had to get involved in the supernatural drama again, because so-and-so really needed her. She just leaves you wishing you could help and fighting to not storm out because she won’t listen to your sound advice. Ever.
Well, we want to talk about those book friends this time. The bad friend heroines. They’re selfish and they make horrible choices and don’t learn from them, but we just can’t put the brakes on our friendships, because, well, we love them.
