The Best Romance Books of June

Posted by Hayley on June 1, 2019
Do you know whom you'll be falling in love with this month? We've got suggestions…

Every month our team takes a look at the new romance books and how early readers are responding to them. We use this information to curate a list of soon-to-be-beloved favorites, from contemporary love stories to scandalous historical romances.

For June, we have another Pride and Prejudice retelling (how shall we bear so much happiness!), plus love for a reformed rogue, a sexy house flipper, a guy who's not afraid of commitment, and more. Add what looks good to your Want to Read shelf, and let us know what you're reading and recommending in the comments.

message 5: by Kelley (new)

Kelley O'Brien It's Pride month and not a single lgbt book was included. I wish I was surprised.

Shāfiya Mū As if the GoodReads Awards didn't show us how non-inclusive the site can be, this list sure as fuck did.

Rachel Reads Ravenously Waiting for Tom Hanks should be on this list. It was so good!
