Is there a magic number for the number of books in a series for you? Will you only read series with four or less books in a completed series? Do you prefer long series (10+ books)? Does the number of books in a series matter?
I really prefer a series to have 2-3 books at most IF the series is focusing on the same couple, because in most cases a story really doesn’t need to go beyond that in order to be fully told. Of course there are always exceptions. Case in point would be The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, and The Crossfire series by Sylvia Day. Another exception would be if the POV changes, which happened in The Thoughtless series by S.C. Stephens. Personally, I would not be opposed to another book in the Gabriel Inferno series by Sylvain Reynard, but I digress…
If a series focuses on different couples then that’s a whole ‘nother matter. A few authors that I’d be ecstatic over continuing on and on and on would be Christina Lee (Between Breaths), Elle Kennedy (Off-Campus), Samantha Young (On Dublin Street), and K. Bromberg (Driven).
So, what about you?
