So, the 5th question is “How do you feel about workplace romance? ”

1) Author #1 : Chloe S. Flanagan

In reality, I’m not a fan, but I like the trope because it hedges on the couple getting to see each other in a different light than they see in the office. It plays with the duality in our nature—who we are professionally versus who we are personally—-and I find that fascinating.

2) Author #2: Olena Kagui

There is always something dangerously sexy about a workplace romance. Whether it’s between colleagues or between an employee and a boss, the sense of ‘what if people find out’ or ‘what if we break up’ always keeps me on the edge of my seat.

3) Author #3: Angela Breen

As long as productivity isn’t affected and no one can lose their job over it, I think it’s fine. I did know a couple who worked for the same company and got married and the husband couldn’t be promoted because then he’d be his wife’s boss which is pretty awful.

5) Author #5: Erin Lynne 

This romance trope typically shows a strong female character that I can identify with. And nothing beats the chemistry of two smart people going head to head.

7) Author #7: Marie Lavender

I don’t see any issues with it, as long as the individuals can separate the drama involved in a relationship from their actual jobs.

8) Author #8: Jennifer Carole Lewis

I don’t think there’s anything inherently problematic about workplace romance but it takes a lot of insight and effort to ensure there isn’t a power imbalance between two people.  It’s not uncommon for attractions to develop into something more when people spend a lot of time together in any circumstances.

9) Author #9: Amber Daulton

It’s not my favorite trope, so I tend to avoid reading and writing those kinds of stories. I’m not saying I won’t write one in the future, but as of now I have no plans to.

10) Author #10: J. Grayland

It’s not ideal but you can’t help who and where you fall in love.

11) Author #11: Nicole Highland

I’d avoid it at all costs. I hate confrontation, and if things went south with that particular person, it could get way too messy, and a job isn’t usually something that’s easy to walk away from if things get awkward. 

12) Author #12: Renata Sterling

I think that though it may have been more romanticized before the time we live in now, in real life it can cause pretty messy situations for both parties involved.  Romance, however, is fiction and can have a fantasy element that most people wouldn’t consider acting out in real life. But in the end, if two mature individuals think they can handle it and the repercussions, then I say, have at it.  But that’s what a story is, confict, so workplace romance stories just have that element built in.
