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.
If you love The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood, read With You Forever by Chloe Liese
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.
If you love The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang, read A Not So Meet Cute by Meghan Quinn
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?
If you love Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score, read Bold Fortune by M.M. Crane
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.
If you love It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey, read From the Top by Jaqueline Snowe
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.
If you love The Fine Print by Lauren Asher, read Love Unsolicited by Alexandra Warren
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.

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.
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.
When we’re talking about romance books, sometimes we can have either a slow-burn romance or an instant-love one. But personally, I feel like we can also find the slow burn aspect in instant-love romances. For example, we can have a book with two characters who get it on early in the novel, but in terms of their romantic feelings for each other, they are not yet there. I call that an emotional slow burn because we do have them interacting a lot in these swoony moments, but they are not yet there in the “I fell in love with them” part of the story. The most common way you’ll see a slow-burn romance book is, probably, when two people take most of the book to finally be together.
