Beach Read Recommendations: Contemporary Romance
If you haven’t taken my quiz yet to get beach read recommendations tailored just for you, check it out here.
If your result is Contemporary Romance…
Contemporary romance encompasses quite a few sub-genres, so I’m going to focus on sweet/clean romance and rom-coms, two of my personal favorites.
Sweet/clean romance: You believe in happily ever afters, and reading is an escape from your everyday life. You want that emotionally-satisfying ending that leaves you smiling. Hallmark movies are your happy place, and you love a man who’s willing to tell the woman he loves exactly how he feels about her. If you want to escape to a charming small town where you get to know characters beyond the heroine and hero, these books are for you.
Rom-Coms: You love awkwardness, confusion or even a little hi jinx on your way to happily ever after. Lighthearted and funny, these books can be sweet/clean or a little steamier. There’s often something big one or both of the main characters doesn’t know about the other. If you find yourself going back to movies like When Harry Met Sally, Pretty Woman and Sleepless in Seattle, the books are for you.
If you lean toward Hallmark-esque small town romances, try:
Sandover Beach Memories by Emma St. Clair
This one is the first book in a Christian sweet romance series
If you lean toward rom-coms, try:
Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa
The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez
