The Best Grovel Scenes in Romance Books

by Silvana Reyes August 08, 2022

Reading angsty romance books makes me happy. Mainly because it means the love interests will have to work extra hard to get to their happily ever after, but also because most of the time one of them messed up really bad and they have to GROVEL for forgiveness in order to be happy forever with their love interest. There’s just something about a good grovel scene that makes a book ten times better!

There's nothing more delicious than a groveling scene so good it gives you  goosebumps and today I’m going to list romance books that feature amazing grovel scenes. 

I’m not going to describe the grovel scene or give away any spoilers because I truly believe in experiencing that for the first time for yourself but be certain that every book on this list has an epic grovel scene.

Twisted Love by Ana Huang

Twisted Love by Ana Huang

Huang starts her Twisted series withTwisted Love. This book follows Ava and Alex and their forbidden romance. Ava’s brother is about to leave for South America for work and he has asked Alex, his best friend, for a favor: keep an eye out for his little sister, Ava.

What started as just a favor to his friend soon turns into a romance between him and Ava, but each of them has secrets that they rather not revealed and they might be the ones to keep them from reaching their happily ever after. Think of this series as a light dark romance series!


The Tyrant Alpha’s Rejected Mate by Cate C. Wells

The Tyrant Alpha’s Rejected Mate by Cate C. Wells

This is probably one of the only books where you read the synopsis and you could see and feel the groveling already because when it comes toThe Tyrant Alpha’s Rejected Mate… it's about to get super angsty. 

Una has always felt like the black sheep of her pack. And she definitely is. But that’s not the only thing she is certain about; she knows she is Killian’s, the alpha of her pack, mate. Though when she tells him, she is publicly rejected! Killian doesn’t believe they are mates and he confidently tells her. He’s positive that he can stay away. But when Una doesn’t leave his mind he suddenly realizes that they’re in fact mates. The thing is… he might be too late.





The Day of the Duchess by Sarah MacLean

The Day of the Duchess by Sarah MacLean

If you can be certain of one thing is that Sarah MacLean is always going to deliver an amazing grovel scene. Most of her books feature them, but today let’s talk aboutThe Day of the Duchess. It’s an angsty tale of second chances between estranged spouses who find each other again.

After years in exile, the Duchess of Haven has finally returned to London. She suddenly finds her estranged husband looking for a new wife because he’s in need of an heir. She wants the divorced and he agrees to give it to her if she helps him choose the best wife for him. But this further complicates everything between them, because this means spending time together. And she knows she cannot resist him.

Sports romance books
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.

Grumpy/Sunshine Romance
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.

The Best Slow-Burn Romance Books Waiting For You

by Silvana Reyes January 07, 2023

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.
