Romance is greater than great but so is friendship.
My erotic romance 'Her Men' explores friendship from two angles in this reunion story.
First Julie comes face to face with her old BFF Connie. Happily, they hit it off again right from the start as if they haven't been apart for twenty years. They confide in each other, support each other, and just enjoy being together.
Although this relationship isn't foremost in the story, it's still very important. Connie plays an important role. Not only is she Julie's confidante, but she's also Julie's mouthpiece whether Julie knows it (or approves of it) or not. Connie catapults the story forward in several places. She's a crucial secondary character and the story would suffer without her, just as Julie would suffer without her best friend.
Next, and foremost to the story, Julie runs into James. He was also one of her best friends twenty years ago in college. The difference is she harbored deep romantic feelings for James and fantasized about him (and what she'd do with him) over the long years. Now that they're together again, she prays she'll get her chance to see if there's a forever with James or if they're destined just to remain friends and nothing else.
