Hello fellow bookworms 💕 Ever since I launched my Out of Comfort Zone Reading Challenge, I have loved branching out with what genres and types of books I read. I’ve always found Adult books to be so daunting and a big leap for me, but I found that I love exploring Adult Romance books 🥰 The idea for this post actually came to me after I read Spoiler Alert as it was such a nice surprise and made me excited to try out other Adult Romance books, as I feel they can be a great comfort to me! That’s why today I’m sharing 10 Adult Romance Books on my TBR with you! There are more books of course, but these are the ones I’m most looking forward to reading ❤ I might make a second part to this post, as I’m always searching for more recommendations!

- An Intro to Romance With 40 Romance Recommendations (Veronika @ wordyandwhimsical)
The Roommate (Rosie Danan) ➽ Most books on this list caught my attention because I saw a lot of hype for them online (be it on Twitter, Goodreads or Blogs) and The Roommate is no exception! The book seems to play into the ‘Oh My God They Were Roommates’ trope as it’s about two near strangers who couldn’t be more different sharing a lease 😱 I’m currently waiting for my library hold to come in, but I’m almost at the top of the list, so I hope I will be able to finally read The Roommate in May ❤
Beach Read (Emily Henry) ➽ I have heard SO many things about Beach Read, there was a time when it was so hyped up and that really got me curious! The book is about two writers who are spending the summer in neighboring beach houses and write in completely different genres (literary fiction and romance). As they are both having a case of writer’s block they decide to switch genres and try writing something outside of their comfort zone, an idea that I find really interesting and promising! I love books about writers so I have high hopes for Beach Read 💕
All the Feels (Olivia Dade) ➽ This is a companion novel to Spoiler Alert – the book that inspired this list – so of course I had to include it! All the Feels centers on two side characters from the first book which I was already invested in and hoped to read more of, so it couldn’t be more perfect for me!! One of them is a famous actor whose career is surrounded by scandals and the smart woman who was hired to keep him in check 👀 Sadly I have to wait a little while longer for this book, as it only comes out at the end of October 🥺
Get a Life, Chloe Brown (Talia Hibbert) ➽ I really need to read this book as everyone seems to have loved this romance book (and the companion novels) so much! Sadly, I didn’t like the author’s 2020 Christmas novella, but I hope her other books are good, as I keep seeing them everywhere. Get a Life, Chloe Brown is about a chronically ill protagonist who sets out to fulfill a bucket list and make life interesting after a near-death experience shocked her. I even have the e-book sitting on my Kindle, ready to read, so I hope I get around to reading the book this year 🥰
Shipped (Angie Hockman) ➽ I added this to my TBR as I saw Ruby recommend it and got myself the e-book in a fantastic Kindle Deal not soon after! Shipped sounds like the perfect summer romance as it’s set during a Cruise with two rivaling coworkers competing for the same promotion … only to realize they might like each other more than they thought! I think the reason this book appeals to me so much is that due to the virus I couldn’t go on my first ever Cruise last year and I’m still a little heartbroken about this 🥺 So at least I got to live vicariously through the characters in Shipped!
The Ex Talk (Rachel Lynn Solomon) ➽ Rachel Lynn Solomon’s Today Tonight Tomorrow was one of my favorite books this year so far and got me excited to read her other books! The Ex Talk is her newest release and has a premise that immediately caught my eye. Instead of Fake Dating we have two radio hosts who have to pretend to be Fake Exes for their newest show … but end up falling in love with each other 👀 This sounds like so much fun (and drama)!
Make Up Break Up (Lily Menon) ➽ This is Sandhya Menon’s adult debut and as I love her YA romance books, I thought it would be easier to get into Adult Romance with an author I’m familiar with. I read a sneak peek of Make Up Break Up because I was curious if this was for me and really liked the writing and tone, so it immediately went to my TBR! The book itself is a rivals to lovers romance between two app developers who are competing against each other, which already sounds promising 💘
Honey Girl (Morgan Rogers) ➽ Originally this book wasn’t on my radar at all, but then I saw so much love for it on social media and in the community, that I got very intrigued!! It’s about a 28-year-old overachiever who feels weighed down by the pressures and expectations of society, something that Immediately caught my eye. There’s also an impulse marriage with another woman involved and almost everyone seems to love the romance, so I have high hopes! I’m currently waiting for my library hold to come in, so I can finally read it!
Boyfriend Material (Alexis Hall) ➽ This is another book that caught my attention as I saw a lot of love for it in the bookish community and the premise really appealed to me as well! Boyfriend Material is about the son of a rockstar who is thrust back in the spotlight and in need of the perfect boyfriend to clean up his image. That means that once again we have Fake Dating and also Opposites Attract which are two tropes that I’m always excited to read 🥰
The Flatshare (Beth O’Leary) ➽ I have seen a lot of hype for Beth O’Leary’s books – they seem to be very well-beloved – so I was curious to give them a try! The Flatshare was the book that most appealed to me because of its premise. The book is about a romance between two people who share a flat … only that they never see each other. One works a night shift and the other during the day so they take turns sharing a single bed. This sounds like a recipe for disaster so I’m intrigued 😱
