For example, what would it be defined if used in this sentence:

We share the passion in reading fantasy adventure book series.

Also, should in be replaced with of?

    It means exactly what the words say: you both have the same passion, i.e. enthusiasm about reading fantasy books. I thinka better preposition would be for. – Barmar Jan 1 '15 at 16:33

    It seems too trivial – Barmar Jan 2 '15 at 12:57
  • @Barmar With for, I think I'd use a rather than the. – Richard Kayser Oct 5 '16 at 0:44

It's a valid form. Basically means "we enjoy this and think you will too". Either "in" or "of" will work, though "of" is probably preferred.
