Good Minds Suggest—Jennifer L. Armentrout's Favorite New Adult Romances

December, 2013
Jennifer L. Armentrout Whether hooked by the tantalizing chemistry of her paranormal and science fiction adventures for teens or seduced by the decidedly more adult romances penned under her alter-ego, J. Lynn, readers trust Jennifer L. Armentrout to get their hearts racing. Her runaway hit Wait for You, a finalist for Best Romance in the 2013 Goodreads Choice Awards, focuses on the sparks between a girl hoping to forget a painful past and the blue-eyed hunk she meets while away at college. Although Armentrout first made her name in young adult literature, she has also embraced the rapidly evolving new adult genre, with college-age contemporary romances that capture the heady thrill of young love. The West Virginian author shares her favorite new adult romances to warm you up this winter.

Foreplay by Sophie Jordan
"My favorite new adult read of the year so far is Foreplay. Sexy and sweet, the story lingers with you long after you finish, and you end up wanting more and more of Reece."


Losing It by Cora Carmack
"Another favorite of mine is Losing It. It's not your typical new adult, having more humor than angst in it, and that book can make me laugh out loud while it also brings the swoon. All I have to say is CAT!"


Easy by Tammara Webber
"This book handles a delicate topic very well and also represents sororities accurately. Even with the tough subject matter, Easy brings the sexy and the swoon with a real love story."


Jet by Jay Crownover
"Another favorite of mine is Jet and all of Crownover's Marked Men books. No one quite does tattooed and pierced bad boys like her. Seriously. None of them are what you expect, and I think that's what makes them so good."



Exposure by Irish Blaire
"And finally, I've recently read Exposure and really, really had a lot of fun with the snappy characters and unique premise. It centers around an underground college magazine and totally answers the question: Is it awkward for female and male models to do sexy photo shoots together?"

Livia Same here, Amber! It took me a while to get around to reading Foreplay, but I wouldn't have known about it if she and a book blogger that she featured in the getting to know blogs hadn't also recommended it. I wanted to read Foreplay again immediately as soon as I finished it like how I feel with most of Jennifer's books, lol! :)

Beth Marked Men series YES. Rome (Marked Men, #3) by Jay Crownover is an all time favourite cover book of mine.
