Today’s topic was supposed to be ‘Purple, Yellow, and/or Green Book Covers’ but I wasn’t feeling that, so I’m going rogue! As a hopeless romantic, I’m still a little stuck in last week’s love freebie, so I thought “WHY NOT DO ONE MORE LOVE TOPIC?” And thus, this post was born!
I’ve really been rediscovering the romance and rom-com genre in the last few years (hey, we all could use something light and fun and with a HEA every once in a while), so today I’d like to highlight twelve romance books that are being released in 2021. Which one of these are on your TBR?
release date: January 19th
Two office rivals stuck on a cruise to the Galápagos Islands…together. Sounds like the perfect mix of The Hating Game and The Unhoneymooners to me! (I already read and reviewed this and really enjoyed it)
release date: February 2nd
It’s Sandhya Menon’s debut adult romance and it’s an enemies-to-lovers / second-chance story about two rival app developers so it’s a must-read obviously.
release date: March 2nd
The only thing I love more than all things bread? Fake engagement stories. Combine the two and I’m sold.
release date: April 6th
From the blurb: “a swoon-worthy novel about a man and woman who never agree on anything—until they agree to a no-strings-attached affair in this Regency-era romp.” = me in love.
release date: April 6th
A woman inheriting an old house from her great aunt and the gorgeous yet grouchy groundskeeper who has different visions for the property’s future sounds like a match made in bookish romance heaven to me.
release date: April 13th
I love The Hating Game so much that any new Sally Thorne is an auto-read. And this story about a retirement home manager who hires a muscular, tattooed man as an assistant to two old women sounds like it could be just as good.
release date: April 29th
A new book by Beth O’ Leary. Road trip. Scotland. Second chance romance. Yep, definitely have high hopes for this one.
release date: May 6th
Red White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston quickly became one of my all-time favorite books, so of course I have high hopes for One Last Stop. Add to that the fact that this is a time-travel rom-com with a focus on queer history, and I AM SOLD!
release date: May 11th
Friends-to-enemies-to-lovers from the author of Beach Read equals one very excited me.
release date: May 18th
I have yet to read a Christina Lauren book I don’t like, so adding this to my TBR feels like a no-brainer. I’m already super excited about the hate-to-love, fake dating and science nerd aspects!
release date: June 15th
Blurb: “…Stranded at a luxury resort in paradise with her nemesis…”
Me: I’LL TAKE IT!
release date: August 17th
A new book from the author of The Kiss Quotient and The Bride Test, this third book features fan-favorite Quan with his very own romance!
