Adult romance can be fun to read (and write) if it's done with a sense of humor.
I have managed to encounter a few works where I thought "I'm not old enough to read this!" and put it down. My mother did that with the Game of Thrones series. She read all of book one, skimmed book two, then took the whole lot of them to the donation center.
