So, a flip side of what you're tired of--what can't you get enough of?  

Me? I love big burly guy meets tiny girl, action/drama happens, they fall in love and defeat bad guy.  Wash. Repeat.  

I don't care what genera this is done in.  They can be vampires, clowns, zombies, robots, superheroes, cowgirls/boys, rich business tycoons or garbage collectors.  The only thing I don't like is when the woman is 'helpless'.  I want the woman to have a spine--the guy just needs a stronger spine.  

I dig the bad-boy gone good story lines.  The badder the boy the better!

I am also a big fan of primary characters making it through to the end of the book.   (sentimental, I know)

How about you?

Lowly person becomes hero. Whether this is in MG, YA or for adults this plot device gets me gripped. I know it's a trope, but I can't help myself-- I want to know what happens.
