The romance holiday has come and gone once more! But that doesn’t mean that we have to halt all romance talk. Here are some of the top romance novels (not including my own Bottle of Uncertainty) of last year!
Always Only You by Chloe Liese
Chloe Liese delivered one of the freshest, most heartfelt romances of the year. Frankie Zeferino has spent her life building emotional walls, thanks to her autism and her rheumatoid arthritis. But when she strikes up a secret workplace romance with hunky hockey player Ren, she has to learn the value of letting someone in.
Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall
Messy, broken Luc needs to prove himself capable of holding down a healthy relationship to rehab his image (and save his job). When prim and proper Oliver Blackwood enters the picture, they agree to fake a relationship for their mutual benefit. In the process, they fall in love in dizzyingly chaotic fashion, rife with the emotion’s true and glorious complexities.
Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert
This is a deeply felt story of academic Dani Brown and anxiety-plagued security guard Zaf. When Zaf rescues Dani from a fire drill gone wrong, the two embark on a fake relationship to help boost Zaf’s business. But the two exercise such care with each other, they immediately become the other’s soft place to land. Talia Hibbert is an expert at plumbing life’s greatest obstacles – grief, mental illness, feelings of inadequacy — and how to navigate romantic relationships with, not in spite of them.
The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon
Alongside her two new friends, Samiah Brooks vows to spend six months working on herself. No romantic distractions. But that gets tested with the arrival of new coworker, the hunky Daniel Collins, himself an undercover agent. Samiah struggles with the pressure to be perfect, but The Boyfriend Project is a firm reminder of the value of allowing others to help us carry the weight of our own expectations.
The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa
Wedding planner Carolina Santos faced her worst nightmare when her fiancé dumped her at the altar, but when a new project forces her to partner with his brother/best man, Max (whom she blames for the jilting), it’s a career opportunity she can’t pass up. As Lina and Max work to prove themselves, they can’t help falling for each other.
