The Rec League: Competence Pr0n

link to post

We’re combining two similar requests for this Rec League on competence porn! Flchen1 asked for a Rec League on this specifically in the comments of a RITA Reader Challenge review. And we received this email request from reader KK:

Heroines with successful careers that are respected by the narrative and their partner. The field doesn’t overly matter, and while I don’t often read Romantic Suspense or Inspirational, I’m sure I’m not the only one interested in this.

The Thing About Love
A | BN | K | iB

Redheadedgirl: Isn’t Julie James like, pure competence porn?

Sarah: Julie James is competence porn, highest grade.

Elyse: Billionaire Builders series by Jennifer Probst!

Sarah: Tracey Livesay’s books with Avon are competence porn, especially the heroines – Love on My Mind ( A | BN | K | G | iB ).

Level Up by Cathy Yardley ( A | BN | K | G | iB ), which is all about geek and gamer culture.

Everywhere and Every Way
A | BN | K | iB

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne ( A | BN | K | G | iB ) has a sort of competence battle between the two leads.

And Act Like It ( A | BN | K | G | iB ) and Pretty Face by Lucy Parker ( A | BN | K | iB ) both feature actors, and there’s rehearsals, performances, etc.

Amanda: Elyse also tagged Hidden Impact by Piper Drake ( A | BN | K | G | iB ) with “competence porn.”

What books would you recommend that fall into this category?
