If it were possible to be in a romantic relationship with a novel, I would marry Dark Wild Night. In fact, I’d happily participate in a ménage à quatre with the entire Wild Seasons series. Does that make me weird? If so, I careth not!

This college romance is super sweet and angst free. It’s also a quick read. With fewer than 200 pages, it was easy to enjoy Things Liars Say in one sitting.
Lauren Blakely has become my go-to author when I’m looking for a lighthearted escape. Her romantic comedies are pure joy and 100% addictive. Most Valuable Playboy takes several tropes—sports romance, friends-to-lovers, and best friend’s sister—and manages to combine them successfully.
This friends to lovers romance is both sweet and hot, albeit frustrating.
Let me cut right to the chase. I. Loved. This. Story. All the books in the Winston Brothers series are highly entertaining, but I think this one might be my favorite. Beard in Mind contains all the humor that I associate with the series; however, at the center is a complexity that is marvelously atypical.
Let’s face it. A gorgeous and caring man who keeps you company 24/7 and guards every inch of your body like it’s his job—which it absolutely is—is all kinds of sexy. Bonus: he bakes a mean pie. By the end of this book I was channeling my inner Whitney Houston à la The Bodyguard and belting out, “And i-e-i will always love-you-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-i will always love you.” I fell hard for bodyguard Logan St. James. He totally kicks Kevin Costner’s ass!
I really enjoyed this college rom-com. How to Date a Douchebag: The Studying Hours is the first sports romance I’ve read about wrestlers. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of wrestling. Big sweaty guys, grabbing each other in headlocks like elementary kids in a playground fight, rolling around on mats, and pinning each other down? Meh. And those unitard thingies they wear? I don’t care how much junk they show, they just aren’t sexy to me. I guess I’m in the minority because all the girls on campus get lady boners over the wrestlers. They must have a really sucky football team or something. Who knows? So yeah. The wrestlers are a big deal at this college and, apparently, the majority of them are big douche canoes.
The WAGs series revolves around characters finding love while navigating the world of professional hockey. Stay is the second standalone in this highly entertaining series, and it strikes all the right notes.
