    So the context doesn’t really matter but I came across this excerpt from a (self-published?) romance novel and it’s so bad I had to share.

    Girl is a princess who was sold into marriage to a prince to settle her kingdom’s debts or whatever.

    Lol practically won an award for most likely to kill you in a fight?

    Is he talking about those titles you get in senior year of high school?

    I hope the author didn't win Most Likely to Succeed.

    FTR I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be a bodice ripper, which makes the modern-sounding dialogue especially cringe worthy.

    I’ve read a couple books that had modern dialogue with bodice-rippery premises, but they weren’t this bad. Humor was what usually redeemed them, though.
