Valentine’s day is such a weird holiday, a lot of people love it – pun not intended- and others do not like it. I believe the problem is how people idealized romance, and I will blame a bit the best cute romance novels that are out there. The reason we have such high expectations is because of this heart-melting stories.
Now, I am romantic but weirdly enough I don’t read romance stories. I love when the book throws my way a candid and slow romance event between two men or two women. Those stories that just have too many themes going on and that aren’t focused on the romance.
In this site, we are looking to break with the comfort zone, so we investigated which are the most romantic books for Valentine’s Day
In Five Years by Rebecca Serle
Dannie Kohan is nothing like her lifelong best friend—the wild, whimsical, believes-in-fate Bella. Her meticulous planning seems to have paid off after she nails the most important job interview of her career and accepts her boyfriend’s marriage proposal in one fell swoop, falling asleep completely content.
However, for some mystical reason Dannie Kohan wakes up in the future with a completely different life… and although she spent only 1 hour in the future, her live changes immediately.
I like how the story sounds, not only for the beautiful New York City in the cover, but also for its implicit message, we plan our lives, but our life does not go with the plan. A must read
Beach Read by Emily Henry
A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer–long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.
This is the kind of novel that you will totally see in the big screen. Two strangers meet. They are opposites and they don’t believe in love. This is your typical rom-com novel that will make you laugh while slowly falling in love with the characters as they fall in love with each other. We all read this novels to experience that romantic comedy life of easy and unexpected love.
Get a Life Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
Chloe Brown is a chronically ill computer geek with a goal, a plan, and a list. After almost—but not quite—dying, she’s come up with seven directives to help her “Get a Life”, and she’s already completed the first: finally moving out of her glamorous family’s mansion, but it’s not easy being bad, even when you’ve written step-by-step guidelines on how to do it correctly. What Chloe needs is a teacher, and she knows just the man for the job.
One more to the list! I don’t want sad romances, I want sweet and sharp comedies full of impossible couples, weak self-control. Chloe seems to be the typical girl that looks for perfection and Redford seems to be the typical trouble soul of an artists that hides his talents from a male dominated society.
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there’s not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.
The same story of romantic novels. We don’t understand love. We can try to fool ourselves with not falling for someone or wanting to fall for someone else, but life has its own plans.
Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. Until she meets the right guy, not the guy she might have ever dreamed about, but someone “unexpected” and that is what makes these stories worth reading. Who knows in which direction is your true love coming from?
The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams
Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott’s marriage is in major league trouble. He’s recently discovered a humiliating secret: his wife Thea has always faked the Big O. When he loses his cool at the revelation, it’s the final straw on their already strained relationship. Thea asks for a divorce, and Gavin realizes he’s let his pride and fear get the better of him.
Now, the first time I saw this I thought and hoped it was going to be a gay romance that flourished from a bromance, but it seems that I was looking for something different haha I like the idea of how men will get together to read romance stories something that for some reason is “taboo” just because alpha males are not supposed to like romance? Let’s break the mold and find how this group of males get out of their shells.
You had me at Hola by Alexis Daria
After a messy public breakup, Jasmine Lin Rodriguez finds her face across the tabloids, and when Jasmine returns to her hometown of New York City to film a bilingual romantic comedy, Jasmine figures her new “Leading Lady Plan” should be easy enough to follow—until she is paired her with the telenovela hunk Ashton Suárez.
I love the Latinx feeling this story has and how the author plays with the cities and the cultures. Living your telenovela fantasy, my tenelovela fantasy sorry, I am digging Jasmine’s and Ashton’s romance to flourish from the “unexpected” secret encounters to work in their favor.
