You may know Julie Murphy for her YA novels, but her first foray into adult romance swept me off my feet. A Cinderella retelling with a fat woman going on a fictionalized version of the Bachelor did not disappoint my reality TV– and romance-loving heart. Murphy turns the Cinderella story into something new and all its own, and I loved the direction she chose—and I think you will too.

Charmed and Practical Magic meet John Tucker Must Die (along with a sprinkle of queer romance) in this delightful gem of a novel.

So she teams up with Linden Thorn, her long time best friend, and the seductive and mysterious Talia Avramov to take him down a peg. Sexy, charming, and downright magical, this book is the perfect Halloween read for anyone who’s a little more Hocus Pocus than The Conjuring.

Filled to the brim with quirky characters, witty dialogue, and the most unexpected setting (Stanford!), The Love Hypothesis is a beauty of a story. If you're looking for a fast read that manages to toe the line between uber-serious commentary and lighthearted fun, this unlikely contemporary romance between a struggling PhD student and the notorious professor who fails just about everyone in his path is definitely for you! (And don't worry, the scientific lingo is hilarious and easy to follow along, even for people (like myself) who are not very... STEM-inclined, let's just say.)

Rhiannon Hunter is living her best life as the CEO of Crush, a new-to-the-game dating app that has been skyrocketing with success.

The Right Swipe is a lighthearted contemporary filled with thoughtful commentary on grief, grudges, and the consequences of broken trust. Alisha Rai absolutely nails the fine balance between conflict and comfort. You'll be rooting for Rhiannon and Samson from start to finish.

I've loved every entry in Talia Hibbert's series about the Brown sisters, and this one is no exception. Prepare for British snarkiness, an imperfect but perfectly lovable cast, and multiple moments that will have you burst out loud with laughter. As with all books in the series, the inclusivity and genuine care Hibbert extends to her characters makes this the epitome of a feel-good romance. I definitely recommend the audiobook on Libro.fm as well!

My favorite television show is The Great British Baking Show, my favorite genre of book is romance, and my favorite type of romance is those featuring bisexual characters—this book combines all three of those into a book that may even surpass Hall's incredible Boyfriend Material in my heart and mind. If you like any or all of the above—read this book about a bisexual single mom going on the country's biggest baking show on a journey that will take her far beyond the trials of soggy bottoms and fallen trifles.

Anne of Manhattan is a sweet, funny, and sexy modern retelling of Anne of Green Gables. Anne, Diana, Gilbert, and more as millennials is a story I didn't know I wanted! This is a refreshing spin while also serving a good trip down memory lane.

This romance novel is one of the queerest I've read, and considering my tastes, that's saying something. The romance is between a cis bisexual man and a genderqueer person. "Normal" relationships haven't historically worked for either of them, but they really like each other. The solution? They might have to actually communicate about their wants, needs, and past traumas.
