Five Romance Novels to Read This Summer

Summer, summer, summertime! It’s hot as hell out here so it’s time for cookouts, quick flights, beach excursions and maybe a road trip or two. Whatever you choose to do this Summer, you’ll need a good book to keep you company. I don’t know about you but I like a little romance in the summer.

Turn up the heat, and I’m not talking about the outside temperature, with these five romance novels to read this summer.

Fortunate by Nikki Blaire

Ayda Forde is the youngest child of the wealthy Forde family. Tremaine Henley is a single father and former playboy who has no problem with women. He’s more than just a pretty face but convincing others of that is a task in and of itself.

Ayda is the woman of Tremaine’s dreams but she may be out of his league, so he thinks. Ayda incorrectly assumes that Tremaine is just a playboy. Their attraction is evident but so are their preconceived notions and insecurities. Nikki Blaire’s debut novel was a solid read with good character development. The main characters were smart, funny and had great chemistry. I liked that we saw the ebbs and flows of their relationship and little miss Sasha was the most adorable four-year-old.

 

Coffee Date by Nia Forrester

This was my introduction to Nia Forrester and I fell in love with her work. Coffee Date is the beginning of a series of “shorts” that follow a former football player, Randall, and a life coach, Dani. A coffee date turns into an unexpected surprise as Dani and Randall navigate. While it’s short, it definitely packs a punch and this novella about moving on is a quite the read.

 

Relationship Goals: A Novella  by Christina C. Jones

In this novella, we meet Noah and NIck. I knew from the beginning that I would love them because I liked how well their names go together and I’m corny like that. LOL. Nick is an independent filmmaker and Noah is a nutritionist and motivational speaker.  These two bump into each other at an airport en route to their individual destinations and share a very passionate kiss. What was definitely unexpected evolved into a beautiful relationship.

If Only for The Summer by Alexandra Warren

There is a certain time frame on a summer fling. However, summer love isn’t quite what we’re told it’s supposed to be in If Only for the Summer by Alexandra Warren. 

In this fun, flirty read, we meet Nova and Guy when their best friends separately invite them to spend their summer in their Miami condo. They (somewhat) reluctantly become roommates for the duration of their stay but casual flirting has a promise for something a little bit more long-term.

 

Road to Love by Nicole Falls

Leave it to Nicole Falls to make me contemplate whether I need to embark on a road trip this summer. Road trips aren’t personally for me. After four hours, I’m cranky, tired of looking at my e-reader screen and looking impatiently for the nearest smoothie place. While reading this book though, I convinced myself if I happen to bump into a man like Ro I wouldn’t mind at all! In Road to Love, we meet Emerson (which happens to be one of my favorite names) and Roosevelt as they cross paths while on a very long road trip. With a humor that I adore and a certain raw honesty, Nicole explores messy family dynamics, past hurts, and deep-rooted issues in this great read.
