Colleen Oakley recommends
The Takedown (2023)
Carlie Walker
"Steamy, swoony and laugh-out-loud funny, The Takedown is part-Finlay-Donovan, part-Emily-Henry-rom-com - and 100 percent perfect. The clever dialogue! The hot bodyguard! The twists I didn't see coming! I couldn't turn the pages fast enough, and can't wait to see what Carlie Walker writes next."
Unleashed Holiday (2023)
Victoria Schade
"How do you make a holiday rom-com even more swoon worthy? Just add dogs. This holiday heartwarmer about a dog trainer helping to civilize her nemesis' pooch is laugh out loud funny, abundantly festive and delightfully sexy. Two paws up! I absolutely loved it."
The Little Italian Hotel (2023)
Phaedra Patrick
"A heart-warming and life-affirming story of five heartbroken strangers trying to wade through on their own--and learning that sometimes all we need is each other. Throw in a charming Italian hotel, a handsome proprietor and Patrick's perceptive wisdom and witticisms, and you've got the perfect summer read."
The Rewind (2022)
Allison Winn Scotch
"The Rewind is as much an endearing love story about the one that got away as it is a love letter to all things 90s, including Doc Martens, Y2K and dial-up Internet. Fresh, original and compelling, this book is Allison Winn Scotch at her absolute best."
Improbably Yours (2022)
Kerry Anne King
"This book has it all - a quirky island, a hot Viking, even ghosts! - but most of all, it has soul. I was charmed and moved by this lovely story that reminds us sometimes we have to dig up the past to remember who we are in the present. A real gem."
Just Another Love Song (2022)
Kerry Winfrey
"Witty, warm and compulsively readable, Just Another Love Song has all the makings of your next favorite romance. From the Stars Hollow-esque town to the hunky country singer Hank and second-chance at love, I alternated between swooning and laughing out loud. If you love Emily Henry, you'll adore Kerry Winfrey."
