Favorite Romance Series

Valentines is a few days away and I’ve been in a romance nostalgic mood! For the past couple of days I’ve been reading snippets from my favorite romances and swooning over these characters all over again. Because of this, I thought it would be fun to share some of my all time favorite romance series to date!

The Addicted Series by Becca And Kristie Ritchie: I think this was the first series I read when I began venturing into the beautiful world of Romance, and it has since become a favorite of mine. Dealing with hard topics and relevant issues, this series made me swoon, cry, and happy dance throughout my time reading as I fell in love with not only the main characters, Lily and Lo, but also their family and friends who grow to be a bigger part of the story as it progresses.

Status: Completed | Spin offs: The Calloway Sisters (follows Lily and her sisters Rose and Daisy), Like Us ( follows their children)

How to Date A Douchebag by Sara NeyThis is the series that had me falling head over heels in love with Sports Romance. Snarky meets Sass and assholes, Sara Ney has a way to make you laugh and swoon all at the same time. Each novel in this series can be read as a standalone and you don’t have to read the series in publication order in order to understand what is going on. The series revolves around the men of the University of Iowa wrestling team–each a douchebag of their own kind and right– and the women who happen to land in their paths. This series is a binger and a time and a half!

The Texting Series by Teagan Hunter: If you are looking for a laugh out loud and melt your heart kind of romance, then this series is the one for you. The Texting Series is a 4 book standalone romcom series that is told mostly through text messages. Each novel deals with a different couple that are all connected or interlinked together in some way. Hunter has become one of my all time favorite romance authors and an instant auto-buy author for me–solely because of this series! Honestly fam, this series is one you don’t want to miss out on as it’s filled with heartfelt moments, goats, pizza, snarky sass, and a shit ton of swoon worthy men.

Status: The last installment “Text Me Baby One More Time” is set to release Feb. 11, 2019

Blue Collar Brothers by Piper Rayne: Hot damn folks. Thats literally all I can say about this trilogy. The series is electric and steamy as each novel follows a different Bianco son, Mauro, Christian, and Luca. Each brother works–you guessed it– blue collar jobs for the city (firefighter, EMT, and Cop). Each story is rooted in the plot line of the brothers being auctioned off during a first responders bachelor auction and how their dates go with the lucky female winners. These books can be read as a standalone, however, I highly suggest reading them in order for the full swoon effect as you will get a deeper understanding and character arc for each of our mains then if you read them out of order and separately!

Spiral of Bliss by Nina Lane: This series leans more towards the ending of the NA audience and the beginning of the Adult audience–but hot toddy maker does this series have you fanning yourself. The series follows the love and marriage of Dean and Olivia as they navigate married life together all the while the secrets of their past come back to test them one final time. This series had me enraptured from start to finish (minus the fourth novel, I choose to believe that one doesn’t exists) and had me fanning myself literally every five minutes as this romance could be considered contemporary romance erotica. Yeah I know, a time.

Status: Completed

Lux by Jennifer L. Armentrout: I could not write about my favorite romance series and not throw in my ultimate favorite trashy YA romance series to date. I am a HUGE fan of everything aliens (like it’s insane and slightly concerning) and extraterrestrial/space so when I heard about Jennifer L. Armentrout and her YA romance series, I HAD to read it. Boy oh boy did I not regret it. I finished this series in one week and it has since been placed in a special corner of my heart as I relate so much to the main character Katy and the things that she struggles with throughout her life–before and after the novel. I honestly wish our main Hero, Daemon, was real just so that I could kidnap him and make him mine forever.

Status: Completed | Spin off: Origin (Tells the Story of Luc 4 years after the ending of Lux)

-Honorable Mentions-

White House Duology by Katy EvansSteamy politics and a secret fling…who knew the campaign trail could be so hot?
The Hook-up by Ilsa Madden-MillsCollege Football Sports Romance filled with witty banter and off the chart chemistry. Each book is a standalone and can be read in any order.
Off-Campus by Elle Kennedy: College Hockey Sports Romance that has even more witty banter, snark, sass and ass. Each book is a standalone but I highly encourage reading these in order!
Outlander Series by Diana GalbadonI am trash for the TV show so obviously I had to shout out this one. Fantasy meets romance and historical fiction; Claire and Jamie are the true OTP and the only reason I will willingly go out and read historical fiction.

    Lux! One of my favorite series. I still need to read The Darkest Star though. I’ve seen so much about Addicted series in twitter but it’s so expensive and the synopsis wasn’t that amazing to make me pay that much for paperback books.

    I haven’t heard of many NA romances that deal with married life and what happens after the HEA, so Spiral of Bliss definitely sounds intriguing! I shall be looking that one up (especially if it tips into romance/erotica 😉)
