Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and with it comes the feeling of wanting to devour all of the romance books to help me face the cruel reality of working on Valentine’s day and having pizza for a date.
I have compiled a list of my favorite romance novels so that if you’re also in the mood to feel ALL OF THE FEELS and swoon wholeheartedly, you’ll have some stories to choose from.
The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
This adult romance took me completely by surprise and managed to make it to my Top Books of 2019.
From the characters, their chemistry and relationship, to the side characters (the friends and family members), to the self-growth both characters undertake over the curse of the novel, this is a story I can’t recommend enough.
The Wedding Date (The Wedding Date #1) by Jasmine Guillory
If what you are looking for is an interracial relationship to make you swoon till the end of time look no further.
This book as it all. Interesting and well-developed characters, long distant relationship, meet-cute, discussions about race and white privilege, funny moments and food references everywhere.
The Kiss Quotient (The Kiss Quotient #1) by Helen Hoang
This diverse romance is very hyped right now, and there’s no wonder why.
The female love interest is autistic, quirky and, while the male love interest is such a sweetheart,I fell a bit for him myself. The plot in here is also very original and always had me hooked.
Plus, the sequel was also great and the last installment is coming out later in the year.
Winston Brothers series by Penny Reid
There was no way I wasn’t going to recommend my favorite romance series of all time. Winston Brothers by Penny Reid will always have my number one spot when it comes to chemistry between each of the characters.
The picture in the right is from book three in the series (so far, my favorite). Her characters are so incredible, the relationships are always messy and beautiful. I always come back to them when I need an instant mood lifter.
Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren
Although this isn’t their most popular novel, Love and Other Words is by far my favorite by this author duo.
The characters in here are very vulnerable, and the story is raw and heart wrenching. It focuses on some very deep issues apart from the romance, but the relationship between out MC is always at the fore center.
Bittersweet (True North #1) by Sarina Bowen
This is my most recent read from all of the books featured here, but it was such a delight that I had to mention it.
We’ve got a farm romance, set in a small town with some of the best family dynamics I’ve seen. Both main characters are absolutely sweethearts, and the self-growth is also a very strong theme of this book.
