Is there really a benefit to reading romance novels? Of course, there are absolutely wonderful bonuses to reading a book filled with steaming hot action! Some of the most popular films were romance novel adaptations. These adaptations include Fifty Shades of Grey, Bridget Jones, and Twilight.

That’s not the only reason why everyone (men and women) should pick up an enthralling romance novel. Perhaps you love the idea of being in love or, maybe you like the sex in between all the action, spelled out. And, why not?

Many people unfamiliar with romance novels or the genre may not realize there are books covering the entire spectrum of romance to erotica. Whatever a reader craves, there is a novel to satisfy that hunger. So here are seven hidden benefits of reading romance novels that you probably didn’t know about!

10. Guaranteed Happy Endings
A great benefit from reading romance novels is simply the tried and true ending. A true romantic novel always ends with a happily ever after. If it does not, it’s probably not a romance book.

A real romantic novel includes conflict shortly after the subjects are introduced. Then, the main character overcomes a survival arc. Finally, a tearful reunion at the end brings about the “happily ever after.” There will be heartache, but we know our couple will make it in the end.

9. Learn From the Mistakes of Others
Contrary to popular belief, romance novels are some of the most thought-provoking books out on the market. While we know these romantic tales will always find a happy ending, fans are intrigued by the lovers’ journey in their quest to triumph emotional and physical roadblocks to be with each other. Surprisingly, there is a lot to learn about interpersonal communication in romance novels.

8. Let Your Imagination Run Wild
Romance novels are much better than watching romance movies. When you’re watching a movie, you’re watching the final product, produced by someone else’s vision. Reading a romance novel allows your mind the freedom to visualize the scenes to your own ideas.

7. There’s A Romance Genre for Every Reader
Another misconception about romance novels is its limitation in the genre. Romantic books aren’t confined to Harlequin or Zebra novels, the industry is booming. There are many genres of romance to choose from.

6. Action and Adventure
Another big misconception about romance novels is the plot lines. Believe it or not, romance novels provide some of the best action and adventure. The buildup to the sex scenes can be riveting.

5. Understanding of relationships deepen
Some people may brush this off but think about it. If you’ve read 20 romance novels, you’ve taken the emotional, mentally, and physical journeys of 20 different lovers faced with insurmountable obstacles. Somehow, they overcame the barriers. So, there is a lot to be learned about relationships by reading these books.

4. Characters
let’s take a second to think about this. Have you ever read love stories with ugly lovers? It’s a shallow aspect of romance novels, but it’s the truth. We love romance novels because the leading men/women are just the right amount of attractiveness to pique any reader’s imagination, and the woman/man in distress, they’re usually gorgeous.

3. Sex
Many readers are drawn to romance novels because of the sex. Without a doubt, romantic books have some of the most descriptive love scenes. Who hasn’t thumbed through the pages of a romance novel to scan the sex scenes?

2. In Love with the Idea of Being In Love
There is nothing wrong with being in love with the idea of love. There is a certain sense of power in saying, “I love the idea of falling in love.” There is nothing wrong with personal preference and romance books provide the best outlet.

1. The Power of Feminism
Some people may argue that reading romance novels takes away from women’s efforts toward overcoming inequality, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Romance novels enrich readers’ lives with thrilling stories, complex relationship drama, and lots of unbridled sex.
