My older reviews only have generic content warnings with no character type or further explanations.
None: You should be okay if you have any aspects you can’t tolerate.
Not a romance: Self-explanatory.
BDSM: Typically followed by (namely, *relationship type* – *character type*, *number participating*, *era*), e.g. BDSM (namely, Daddy/boy – major, two, past/present) if applicable. Books that feature Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/Submission, Sadomasochism, other relationship dynamics, or BDSM clubs fall under this warning.
Kink: Typically followed by (namely, *kink type* – *character type*, *number participating*, *era*), e.g. Kink (namely, spanking – major, two, past/present) if applicable. Books featuring kinks without the dynamic, or that heavily feature a specific kink within a dynamic (e.g. spanking in a domestic discipline relationship) fall under this warning.
Abuse: Typically followed by (*abuse type*, *character type*, *number affected*, *era*), e.g. Abuse (physical, minor, two, past) if applicable. These books feature physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse and may also reference a distant or recent memory of an event that happened to a major or minor character.
Character death: If the person is important to the story it falls under this warning – even when a minor character’s death is only mentioned in passing. I describe it similarly to the abuse category, but I don’t include the type of death…trying to leave SOME mystery, geez!
Dub-con/Non-con: I don’t typically read books with this content warning, but when I stumble across it, I describe it similarly to the abuse category.
Incest: These stories are primarily between step-family members, although some immediate family members may slip in occasionally such as twins.
Drug Use: Typically followed by (*consent type*, *drug type*, *amount of drugged*, *character level*, *era*), e.g. Drug Use (non-consensual, mushrooms, multiple, major characters, present) as applicable.
Violence: These stories contain violence uncharacteristic of a typical romance, or acts perpetrated by people unrelated to the main character (acquaintances, enemies, strangers, etc.).
