It’s that time of the year again, time for some luuurvveee.

Ugh, even I cringed at saying that!

However, it does have me feeling that warm, cozy feeling you get from the love bug. I enjoy a good romance novel every now and then, so I figured I would make a post about it! For this post, I’m going to try to stick with NEW books, at least for the past year.

Psst, this post will contain affiliate links, which means if you purchase something off this list, I will get a small piece of it as well.


The Wedding Party by Jasmine Guillory. If you are looking for a cute and kinda-cheesy romance, this book is for you. I’ve read “The Wedding Date” and almost done with “The Proposal” (I will have a review up for this book!), and they fulfill that need I have to read a quirky novel full of fun characters and sweet romance. Although this is a novel and can be read alone, I would recommend reading “The Wedding Date” first, because it will have characters from that book and it’s fun to read the backstory first.

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. Alright y’all, here’s one to knock your socks off. While the LGBTQA community is rising in popularity, especially with books and movies, we still don’t have very many novels to read. But this one will surely be a crowd-pleaser. You’ll follow along with the story of the First Son of the American president and the royal Prince of England as they try to ease tensions between the rivaling countries by staging a really good performance of friendship. But a forced friendship soon turns into feelings that neither man understands. I haven’t read to many LGBTQA friendly books, but I’m tempted to pick this one up and try it out.

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren. A classic rom-com situation, two people who are sworn enemies now find themselves trapped together on a vacation of a lifetime. They know they hate each other, but force niceness so they can enjoy a trip they both desperately want. But feelings are strange, and soon, they find themselves not having to pretend to like each other. Cheesy? Yes. Worth a read? I think so.

Fix Her Up: A Novel by Tessa Bailey. This is HGTV, contemporary romance, and Hallmark all wrapped in one, and I’m here for it. Long story short, the two main characters fake an engagement to help each other out socially and for their own successes, but of course, they fall heads over heels for each other. See what I mean? If you like Hallmark movies, then this one is for you.


Man, February will turn up the heat on the “love meter”. Did any of these catch your eyes? What kind of romance reader are you? Historical, Christian fiction, etc?

Whether you are spending Valentine’s Day with your boo or eating chocolate and binge-watching Netflix, I hope everyone has a great day! And remember, I love you all! 🥰
