I'm new to erotica and I prefer novellas because they are quick and untaxing, but I can't believe I'm seeing so many negative reviews complaining of lack of character development and also complaining the books are too short.

 

It's like um... erotica? You want character development, go read a literary novel!

 

And novella? You want length, go read something that doesn't outright tell you it's 25K words.

 

I just can't even.

 

Like I said, I'm new to this. But are these feelings valid? If I'm reading erotica I know it's going to lack character development in the place of sex. Am I wrong?
