The Proposal

By Jasmine Guillory
Narrated by: Janina Edwards
Length: 8 hours 58 minutes

The Proposal

“I loved Guillory’s debut The Wedding Date so much that I jumped at the chance to read The Proposal. The story starts with the Most Awkward Meet Cute, then blends together hilarious dialogue and steamy sexy times. Guillory gives Nik fantastic girlfriends who are there for her but will not let her get away with anything. This is the romcom we’ve been waiting for. Someone call Shonda Rhimes and make this a movie.”

The Love Hypothesis

By Ali Hazelwood
Narrated by: Callie Dalton
Length: 11 hours 8 minutes

If you enjoyed The Kiss Quotient, then you’ll love The Love Hypothesis.

“Ali Hazelwood's debut is a HIT! This book has it all. On the serious side, we've got valuable conversations of asexuality and a focus on women in STEM and the realities of the academic world. On the tropey side, we've got fake dating, a bit of the grump/sunshine dynamic, and a hilarious play on "there was only one bed"! This book has so many laugh out loud moments, often courtesy of Olive's best friend Ahn, that I cannot stop thinking about. There's really something for everyone in this story, and it's one I couldn't put down! If you are a fan of contemporary romances, or are just starting out in the genre, this is an absolute must-read!!!”

Length: 10 hours 51 minutes

The Charm Offensive

“Cochrun expertly captures the nuance of falling for someone with mental health issues, while navigating your own identity, sexuality and neurodivergent revelations in way I have never seen before. This book had me all up in my feelings. I've read it all the way through multiple times (maybe six).”

Get a Life, Chloe Brown

A Novel
The Brown Sisters: Book #1

By Talia Hibbert
Narrated by: Adjoa Andoh
Length: 10 hours 41 minutes

Get a Life, Chloe Brown

“I loved everything about this book. A romantic comedy with a heroine of color who also suffers from fibromyalgia? Sign me up. It's raunchy and hysterical and I loved every minute of it. The one down side was that I couldn't listen to it with my kids in the car, so it took me longer than I would've liked to finish it. ”

“This was so much fun, both in story, and also to listen to. January is a romance writer, Gus a dark, literary fiction author, and in a fit of rivalry, they make a bet to write a book in each other's genre for the summer. Packed with emotional depth and plenty of hi-jinks, this is the perfect novel to lighten your heart while challenging your preconceived notions. I wanted to reread it right away!”

The Rehearsals

By Annette Christie
Narrated by: Amanda Troop & Will Collyer
Length: 9 hours 17 minutes

The Rehearsals

“I enjoyed having both Megan and Tom’s perspectives, especially in an audio format with 2 narrators. I enjoyed the magical realism of the day before their wedding repeating. The place was an excellent character itself (San Juan Island, Washington). The rest is complicated. The characters were flawed and frustrating at times, but I appreciated the complexity of what was revealed about their pasts and how it was affecting their behaviors and actions throughout. Not 100% a romance, but there was a HEA of sorts with an ambiguous ending. You will like it or hate it. I liked the character growth and felt like they were headed toward the right sort of redemption that was for each other and themselves instead of everyone else in their lives.”

Meet Me in the Margins

By Melissa Ferguson
Narrated by: Talon David
Length: 7 hours 50 minutes

Meet Me in the Margins

“I've LOLed many times while listening to this enemies-to-lovers romance about books. I almost predicted the twist but was thrown off by a character I never suspected. This book would be great for readers who would prefer a non-steamy read. I felt for Savannah as I learned more about her family's dynamic and how she has tried to navigate it. There were moments that I have rolled my eyes at because of course the character doesn't know she's living in a romance novel. Overall, this was a fun read/listen.”
