The Ex Hex

A Novel

By Erin Sterling
Narrated by: Caitlin Davies
Length: 7 hours 23 minutes

The Ex Hex

“This book will charm your socks off while the romantic leads fight the urge not to literally charm each others socks (and more) off. Perfect for anyone who loves magic, the whimsy of the Halloween season, and romance brewed with a little bit of spice.”

Red, White & Royal Blue

A Novel

By Casey McQuiston
Narrated by: Ramon de Ocampo
Length: 12 hours 15 minutes

Red, White & Royal Blue

“ To everyone who started telling me to read this book a year ago, I’m sorry. You were right - I loved it, unequivocally. The romance was sweet and gentle and real. But the humor put it over the top for me. I needed to laugh like that, desperately. And I did, a lot. A whole lot. But I also cried - because this book is pure, wholesome, and hopeful, even when it dipped into the darker places (with so much grace). Red, White, & Royal Blue gave my heart wings, and I'm still soaring. So to everyone who's still hesitant, don't be me - get on this train ASAP.”

You Had Me at Hola

A Novel

By Alexis Daria
Narrated by: Seraphine Valentine
Length: 10 hours 27 minutes

If you enjoyed The Proposal, then you’ll love You Had Me at Hola.

“Damn, this was cute. Definitely a mood-lifter, definitely a light read. Any fan of Jane the Virgin or One Day at a Time (or even an "I enjoyed an episode once" person) would devour this. Filled with representation, strong leading ladies, family drama, secrets, and pure sass, You Had Me at Hola has you entertained from the first page. Honestly, though this book includes some steamy romance, it wasn't the most exciting thing for me. I was really impressed with Daria's world building. She layered scenes of Carmen in Charge (the show Jasmine and Ashton are filming) in throughout and captures the families of both characters very well. Yes, there is sex but there is also a really sweet relationship blooming that involves multiple layers and I was honestly more in a "cute" mindset throughout that a "sexy" one. There was a lot of talk about being a Latinx actress in today's entertainment world and the difficulty with tokenism, racism, and stereotypes. Daria also touched on the multitudes within the Latinx community and how many different countries, languages, culture, and skin colors that covers. Of course, being a romance, there are always bad decisions and stupid people involved. Jasmine and Ashton, though super cute, are no exception. Just as much eyerolling happened on my face as grinning but in a romance, I guess I wouldn't have it any other way!”

Bringing Down the Duke

A League of Extraordinary Women: Book #1

By Evie Dunmore
Narrated by: Elizabeth Jasicki
Length: 12 hours 20 minutes

Bringing Down the Duke

“Read through this at the speed of the duke’s horse racing across the snowy landscape to catch up with Miss Archer! The sexual tension built to a satisfying climax, the feminist history was an engaging plot foundation, and I’m excited to read more about this new band of intriguing, extraordinary, non-traditional women.”

The Bromance Book Club

Bromance Book Club: Book #1

By Lyssa Kay Adams
Narrated by: Andrew Eiden & Maxwell Caulfield
Length: 9 hours 9 minutes

The Bromance Book Club

The Bromance Book Club is an absolute delight to listen to that rejects toxic masculinity, affirms men who enjoy romance novels, expresses the importance of communication and consent, all while exploring what it takes to make a marriage survive. Equal parts heartwarming and hilarious (with a good dose of heat thrown in) this is definitely one of my favorite romances I've read this year.”

Heart Principle, The

By Helen Hoang
Length: 9 hours 30 minutes

Heart Principle, The

“During a year of critical burnout for many, I never expected to be so deeply touched by a book about the very same. But that is exactly what The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang did - it moved me... to tears, shouts, and fist pumps.... An undeniable masterpiece in the romance (or any) genre that I have already recommended to everyone I know.”
