Fake Dating Romance Novels By Black Authors

by Silvana Reyes February 21, 2023

February is Black History Month, a month when Black Americans’ achievements and contributions are honored. I believe you should always support Black authors' work throughout the year though! So, please always try to share light to their work and read their books during the year, not JUST during February. 

For this list, I wanted to highlight a favorite romantic trope of mine, fake dating! I know many readers are fans of this trope, so I have some fabulous book recommendations for you. The fake dating trope is iconic because it provided you with moments where the characters are pretending to be a couple, and they have to be close and personal for it, but on the inside, they’re already feeling so much for the other person. And because they’re faking a relationship, they feel that the other one doesn’t feel the same way, so it creates a lots of angst and pining when both of them already feel the same!

by Silvana Reyes February 05, 2023

Small town romances are comfort reads for me, hands down. I could read them forever and I would never get tired of them. They give you found family, warmth, and lots of love and for me, those are the perfect ingredients for a romance novel.

One of my all-time favorite tropes is the “city girl goes to a small town” because I just love heroines who are a little bit lost, a little bit lonely, and find a family in a small town where they never thought it could happen.

Fall in Love With 5 Fascinating Sports Romance Books

by Silvana Reyes January 16, 2023

It’s fascinating and entertaining to read a sports romance because you not only get to follow the romance plot, but also the sport itself. Personally, I do love it whenever the characters are playing their sport and as a reader, you get to experience it with them. The highs and lows! Don’t you love when the character who does the sport loses and the other one takes care of them and is there for them in the sad moments in their life? It makes me swoon so much.

The 6 Best Grumpy Girls in Romance Books

by Silvana Reyes January 13, 2023

Even though sunshine girls are written in romance books every single time, let’s not forget about the grumpy girls. The girls who answer in monosyllabic words, grunts, or not at all. The girls who have a hard shell but a soft inside. The girls who are scared to let their walls down and protect themselves in their own way. Grumpy girls are my heart and soul, so I decided to mention a few that have stuck with me even after finishing reading their books.
