Jen DeLuca recommends
Don't Go Stealing My Heart (2020)
(Showmen, book 2)
"This book sparkles and sizzles with Siskind’s trademark humor and heat. Don't go missing this one!"
To Have and to Hoax (2020)
(Regency Vows, book 1)
"To Have and to Hoax is a delightful battle of wits that's funny and touching all at once. James and Violet are perfectly matched, and you'll love watching the sparks fly as they both infuriate each other and fall in love all over again."
Something to Talk About (2020)
"A fresh and fun romance, featuring two witty, intelligent women coming to terms with both their careers and their growing attraction to each other in a glittering Hollywood setting. Meryl Wilsner is a great new voice, whose perspective is both extremely welcome and desperately needed."
The Roommate (2020)
(Shameless , book 1)
"What an incredible debut! Danan gives us strangers to annoyed-roommates to kinda-friends to angsty-pining to finally-lovers with humor, wit, and just a hint of pathos. Josh and Clara are easily my favorite ‘smash the patriarchy’ couple, and The Roommate is easily one of my top romance reads of 2020!"
Spoiler Alert (2020)
"As funny as it is sexy (and boy is it sexy), Spoiler Alert is a love letter to fandom in all its many forms, and was an absolute joy from the first page to the last. Reading it felt like a hug to the heart from someone who wants you to know that you are perfect and deserve to be loved exactly as you are."
How to Fail at Flirting (2020)
"How to Fail at Flirting is a charming and compelling debut from Denise Williams that's as moving as it romantic. Williams brings the banter, heat, and swoons, while also giving us a character who learns that standing up for herself is as important--and terrifying--as allowing herself to fall in love. Put Read How to Fail at Flirting at the top of your to-do list!"
The Ex Talk (2021)
Rachel Lynn Solomon
"Forget fake dating ... fake exes is where it's at! The Ex Talk has all the public radio nerdiness that you didn't know was missing from your life. Shay and Dominic bicker and banter their way into each other's hearts the way only former enemies turned pretend exes can, helped along the way by what may be the world's naughtiest dog. An absolute delight of a read!"
Meet Me in Paradise (2021)
"Meet Me in Paradise is such a compelling read! By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, Libby Hubscher truly takes us on a journey as Marin learns to find happiness on her own terms. Her adventures are brought so vividly to life that I want to start a #ProjectParadise of my own!"
Heart on a Leash (2021)
(Hearts of Alaska, book 1)
"An effortlessly charming debut! Heart on a Leash gives us great comedy in the form of feuding-family shenanigans, along with swoony romance ... and huskies. What more could you want? This is an engrossing read that will take you on a trip to small-town Alaska and make you fall in love."
Love Scenes (2021)
"Love Scenes is an enemies to lovers story set against a Hollywood backdrop, but it's so much more than that. It's the messy love of a complicated blended family. It's the ugly parts of Hollywood, not just the glitz and glamor. It's a heroine fighting to be her own person despite what the gossip sites and a songwriting ex-boyfriend says. It's an earnest, swoonworthy hero doing his best to be a good man, despite his past. Bridget Morrissey has a voice that leaps off the page and invites you to join her for a page-turning good time. Good luck putting this one down!"
The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels (2021)
(Dangerous Damsels, book 1)
"The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels is easily the most delightfully bonkers historical fantasy romance of 2021! Featuring lady pirates in flying houses and gentleman assassins with far too many names, I enjoyed every absorbing moment. I will never look at a cup of tea (with tea before milk, under pain of death) the same way again!"
The Rehearsals (2021)
"A truly absorbing read, told with wit and heart, and impossible to put down. Annette Christie is a master of creating characters that feel like friends, where you hate to turn that last page and say goodbye."
