FAVOURITE ROMANCE BOOKS
This Time Next Year by Sophie Cousens
We couldn’t share our top book recommendations and not include our book club pick, could we?! We have been reading this through the months of January & February and it has gone down so well! “Quinn and Minnie are born on New Year’s Eve, in the same hospital, one minute apart. Their lives may begin together, but their worlds couldn’t be more different. Thirty years later they find themselves together again in the same place, at the same time. Maybe it’s time to take a chance on love…” A really quick & easy romance, perfect for that feel good vibe we all need right now. You can find the book here.
The One We Fell In Love With by Paige Toon
One of our TOP romance book recommendations! We following three sisters; Phoebe, Rose & Eliza. They wouldn’t be more different if they tried but they all have one thing in common. They are all in love with Angus. I read this in one sitting, it is addictive, fast paced & emotional! Paige Toon is one of my favourite romance authors if I want something easy to read that I know I will love. You can find the book here.
The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
If you are after a feel-good romance then this is one for you! This is the story of Leon & Tiffy. They share a flat. They share a bed. They have never met! I know I know, one works night shifts and the other works during the day. So they are passing ships in the night. They communicate through post it notes. It is the most wholesome story & you’ll love it. It is funny & heart warming. You can find the book here.
I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
I share this recently on our Instagram page and it went down really well! Sophie Kinsella is such a hugely popular romance author, I don’t think you can go wrong with any of her books! Poppy has lost her engagement ring.. and her phone. What is she going to do?! All hope seems lost. Until she finds a phone dumped in a bin – finders keepers. Except the owner of the phone, Sam, doesn’t think so. He wants his phone back… The book had me laughing out loud, I completely fell in love with the dynamics & blossoming relationship between Poppy & Sam. You can find the book here.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
If you want sexy romance, then you can never go wrong with a Christina Lauren book! They are the queens of FIREY romance with all the sexy times. We follow Olive & Ethan, arch nemesis but they have to get along for the sake of their siblings – who are dating each other & getting married. However at the wedding, everyone falls ill due to food poisoning, except Olive & Ethan (they are allergic to fish so had something different). Long story short – the honeymoon was won as a competition and can’t be rescheduled so Olive & Ethan go on it. It’s sexy & hilarious. Enemies to lovers is my FAVOURITE. You can find the book here.
Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
If you want romance, sex & intense main characters – Colleen Hoover is the author for you. Ugly Love is my favourite by her. Miles Archer is an airline pilot (sexy right?) and the story centres around his relationship with Tate Collins. They are friends. Just friends. Who have sex. He doesn’t want love & she doesn’t have time for a relationship. It’s the perfect set up, as long as Tate can follow two rules: never ask about the past & never expect a future. What could possibly go wrong? You can find the book here.
Get A Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
Chloe Brown is a chronically ill (amazing rep that we don’t see enough) computer fanatic with a goal… a goal to get a life, after having a almost near death experience. She enlists the help of tattooed motorbike rider, Redford ‘Red’ Morgan. As they spend more time together, Chloe realises maybe she wants more…. This story is fun, hell-a sexy & smart! You can find the book here.
Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory
Please tell me you’ve seen the classic movie, staring Deborah Messing? Well this is basically that story in book form and it is GREAT. Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn’t normally do. But there’s something about Drew Nichols that’s too hard to resist. Drew has been invited to his ex’s wedding and is in need of a plus one.. You can find the book here.
We hope you enjoyed our romance book recommendations, keep your eye out for our next book post which will be filled with LGBTQIA+ romance recommendations!
