As Romance is the genre I read the most, I will ALWAYS have recommendations for it.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blogging meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and this week’s topic is Genre Freebie, basically any topic related to a genre that we would like to talk about.
I’ve previously shared romance recommendations as Top Ten Romance Reads of 2019, so check that out as well so more books!
 Surprise, Baby by Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam
I read this YESTERDAY, actually. I was looking at the new releases in New Adult category and found this book there. It sounded interesting so I picked it up.
It was a pleasant surprise! Talks about second chances, trust, and is a really good story overall.
It’s a hate-to-love romance where they accidentally get pregnant and date during the pregnancy. The story is actually sensible and the characters are good, unlike many other secret-baby-trope books that I’ve read.
 Love Lettering by Kate Clayton
I’ve seen this around very less but it’s actually SO GOOD. It’s a comforting romance and I really love how the characters spend time and learn from each other.
The main character made a business out of lettering for events and planners. I’ve never seen that in fiction before so that was super cool.
Love Lettering really deserves more recognition.
 Shortcake by Lucy Watson
This is slightly longer than average romance books but it’s so worth it.
I’m a sucker for slow-burn romances where there’s proper relationship growth and the characters get to know each other over time. So this was really nice.
It’s also hate-to-love, if you like that trope!
 Truth or Dare by Mira Lyn Kelly
This is an old favourite of mine that I’ve spoken about a few times on this blog. It’s barely known but it’s SO GOOD.
It’s a hate-to-love romance between new neighbours in an apartment building with LOTS of snark and hilarious dialogue.
 Fumbled by Alexa Martin
I’ve been pretty much YELLING about this book on this blog recently haha. But truly, it’s so underrated! In fact, the author is underrated. More people should pick up her books because they’re so good!
The best part about Fumbled was the girl squad. Their friendship and the fun they have together is the best.
 The Hooker & the Hermit by L. H. Cosway and Penny Reid
Cosway is pretty popular among romance readers but this specific book deserves more recognition. I really liked it! It swept me away subtly.
The main character lives a double life where she is a PR manager but also an anonymous blogger. And her blogger persona is VERY famous. She uses her platform for fun and snark at celebrities but also to forward good causes.
 Rafe by Rebekah Weatherspoon
Another book that I’ve been yelling about a lot is this one. The few readers who HAVE read this yell about it, but we’re still not enough. This amazing story with strong characters deserves so much more.
This is a romance between a single mother to two twins and a tattooed male nanny. It perfectly deals with boundaries and trust. I love it. I want to see this everywhere.
 Searching For Beautiful by Jennifer Probst
This is an old favourite of mine. Back when I read it for the first time, I was so caught off-guard by how GOOD it was. I reread it immediately, and then read the rest of the series.
But this book is still the best, in my opinion. It’s a beautiful best-friends-to-lovers story. The chemistry was great.
 Imperfect Chemistry by Mary Frame
Another old favourite, Imperfect Chemistry is one that blew me off during my early New Adult Romance days. It’s an old book but has BARELY any recognition.
The highlight is the main character, to be honest. She’s a genius and decides to research human emotions. And she’s ADORABLE because she doesn’t have a shy bone in her body. The relationship development was awesome.
 Rock Solid by Carly Phillips
A book that truly shows how covers can deceive us. I didn’t expect much from this but it was so good that, so far, I’ve reread it THRICE.
The chemistry between the characters is A+. They have issues that they go through but they communicate and act like adults. Also, the kid adds so much cuteness to the book.
Truly underrated and should be read more.
