Most of the time you find a book on TikTok or Twitter and you completely obsess over it. Right? That happens to me too, so I’m on the same boat. And then after reading and obsessing over it, I want to find something that feels similar. But obviously, I have to go and search on the internet very carefully for that. I want to make this easier for you if you’re just like me and want to find pretty similar romance books to those very popular books you read and loved.
I want to mainly focus on recommending books that are not so popular. Oh, so you love this uber-popular book that goes viral every week? Here you go, read this other book that has the same vibe. That sounds fun, right? Without further ado, let’s get started.
I have found that Chloe Liese is a perfect pairing if you love Ali Hazelwood’s books, so every single one can match, but I’m choosingWith You Forever because it has the marriage of convenience trope and, to be honest, it’s very similar to the fake dating trope which you can find insideThe Love Hypothesis.
In Liese’s book, Axel and Rooney have known each other for awhile, but have never really been alone together. Until now! When Rooney ends up at Axel’s family’s cabin with him, the attraction comes out to play. And then Axel asks Rooney to marry him in order for him to get money from an inheritance.
The Kiss Quotient is an icon. With a bit of Pretty Woman (1990) and lots of romcom vibes,The Kiss Quotient is that girl. I wanted to recommend something with that same vibe and I think Meghan Quinn’s fake engagement rom-com is just what you need if you want to read something after finishing reading Hoang’s debut.
A Not So Meet Cute follows Lottie and Huxley, two people who need to be saved one way or another. Huxley needs a fiancée immediately while Lottie wants to find a rich husband to pay her student loan debts and to have a place to stay after being fired from her job. Good thing both of them just casually met on the streets, right?
One of my all-time favorite tropes, if you know me, is “big city girl goes to a small town and falls in love with a grumpy local who lives there.” If your book has that trope, let me know because I’m getting in. These two have it in spades and they do it wonderfully.
InBold Fortune, Violet travels to Alaska in order to save her job but instead finds a very grumpy, annoyed-at-her guy waiting for her. He agrees to consider her job-related proposal if she can handle a month of Alaska living.
I love that when you fully think a book couldn’t be that spicy and yet it surprises you when you reach the steamy scenes. It’s the case with these two books. When you get to the steamy scenes, you’re committed to these couples and rooting for them full-on.
From the Top is a New Adult romance where you get to meet Cami, “it” girl and dance captain of her squad, and Freddie, a shy nerd. Cami has always thought that Freddie hated her, but the reality is that he has been harboring this huge crush and is just shy when it comes to talking to her, so it comes across as dislike. Yet it’s farther from the truth! When they end up being next-door neighbors in the co-ed dorm rooms, their relationship changes.
Finally, I know most of us love to read romances with billionaire main characters. Lauren Asher is huge and I adore her books! If you’re looking for a billionaire romance with heroes that kiss the ground their love interest walks on, definitely check outLove Unsolicited.
This book is about Joella who usually cons rich men out of their money. Unfortunately, one night, her newest mark ends up being Keanu, the hero. He finds out, but instead of being angry with her, he proposes a deal: let’s spend time together and I’ll pay every time we meet.
Which one will you pick up next? Let me know in the comments!

Look, sometimes you crave a fantasy book. You want action-packed scenes, high-stakes, fights, magic systems, and even talking animals. You want epic adventures that make the characters grow closer. But if you’re like me, you also want to read a romance book. How someone falls in love and finds their other half. How there are small moments between characters, like holding their hand and kissing their forehead, that make you fall madly in love with the book immediately. But what if you crave both of them at the same time? The good thing is that fantasy romance books exist; a little bit of one and a little bit of the other mixed together in one unique and beautiful book.

Age gap romance novels have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. These books explore the complex dynamics of relationships between individuals of different ages, and the challenges that can come with such relationships.
If you’re unfamiliar with the trope, it’s when an older person falls for a younger one. Obviously, each party is over 18! Usually, this trope goes hand-in-hand...

I look for a new way to get books. I like reading books. I don’t care for reading books online.. when you had a book in your hand you feel like that story when you read it..
