Not gonna lie. it’s the dirty talk… not the actual sex scenes, but the build up.

Characters with more life experience and deeper (sometimes sexier) relationships.

More relateable situations (or life experience like Ana said..) and most of the time, it’s the intensity and the build up of the love scenes that I love (because I’m clearly a big perv.. lol).

I think I agree with Celeste. I love the dirty talk and the build up.  With YA, you get tons of UST that doesn’t go anywhere, erm…graphic–think fade to black or implied sexy times.  With straight up adult, the build up is often short and the sexy times come a little too quick and too often (no pun intended ) . With NEW adult, you get the best of both worlds.  You get UST, the sweet painful excruciating build-up that’s more descriptive, graphic, grown up and you eventually get the pay-off.  The long awaited, heart pounding, thigh clenching sexy times.  I also think that the delayed gratification often seen in NA, allows for some amazing story and character development.

Okay, I guess I’ll be the romantic sap on this perv train… even though I totally agree with everything they said. For me, I read young adult because it’s that fresh newness of first love and falling hard and that awkward not-knowing-ness of it all because “love” is such a foreign concept at that age. I love it because it allows me to reminiscence on that period of my life -that tummy-fluttering and sweaty palms tiltarwhirl of emotions stage. With New Adult, you still have people experiencing the newness of love (because we‘re– yes, I’m still “new” to adulthood– still relatively young), but it comes with the knowing and non-fumbling advantages of already having prior relationship experience(s). So, you have all the giddiness without the super-awkward.  Also, there’s usually more angst outside of teeny-popper high school feuding, and being the angst-loving hOOr that I am, I live for the raw honesty of it.
