  • Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
    • Hilarious friends-to-lovers romance. Josh is calm, cool, and collected and Hazel is a wild child full of fun and whimsy. The first meet in college, lose touch, and then reconnect when Hazel discovers that Josh is her best friend Emily’s brother. They get pretty close pretty quick, becoming each other’s person, but it takes them both a while to realize and then admit that they mean more to each other– all the while setting each other up on a series of bad dates.  I laughed so much during this read. Honestly, Hazel is a hoot, and I loved her!

  • The Change-Up by Maren Lee
    • This sports (baseball) romance packs in a lot of sweetness and sexy times! Clay Morrison is a 22 year old star pitcher. Samantha Young is a 32 year old single mom working two jobs. Clay wants nothing more than to make Samantha and her son his, but Samantha’s hung up on their age difference and her abandonment issues. It’s a fun ride watching Clay go all alpha on her!

  • Can’t Text This by Teagan Hunter
    • Another stellar rom-com from Teagan Hunter! This story belongs to Robbie (remember Zach’s tattoed bad boy roommate from Let’s Get Textual?) Can’t Text This is a single dad/son’s teacher romp that had me giggling.
      • Stand alone, book 3 in the Text (I don’t think that’s the official name) series.

  • Engagement Rate by Annie Dyer
    • Office romance where a hook-up turns into something much more. Jackson is a lawyer running his family’s firm with his brothers. Vanessa is a marketing executive in charge of the firm’s rebranding. Jackson is an alpha or sure, but he’s not OTT or an alphahole. Vanessa is an independent woman…sometimes too much so, and it causes a tiny bit of angst. This story was sweet and refreshing with a bit of dirty talk and smutty times. I can’t wait to read the other brothers’ stories!

  • Snared Rider by Jessica Ames
    • MC romance. This is an introduction to the Lost Saxons MC series, so there’s a lot of backstory before the real action takes place, but it’s necessary and doesn’t slow the story down at all. I really enjoyed Ames’s writing style, and she’s brought to life some really interesting and diverse characters. This book is also a second chance romance. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series because I’ve already decided that Dean is mine.
