May Sub-Genre of the Month:

Fooled Around and Fell in Love Romance: This can be as simple as a “One Night Stand” that becomes more. Or buddies who plan the relationship to be “No-Strings-Attached” hook-up. Ultimately they discover their twosome has what it takes to go the distance. (Examples on GRs’ listopia Favorite One NightStand stories by Decadent Publishing and One Night Stand with Unplanned Pregnancy & Love and Girl Loves Him Then Leaves Him 1 Night Stand.)

Oleander | 188 comments Does it have to be people who hook up or could it be people who come together for non-sexual purposes and then end up in love?

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments These ones caught my eyes from the lists :

If you can call it fooling around and falling in love ? Yes why not ;)


message 7: by Oleander (new)

Oleander | 188 comments I found Mackenzie's Pleasure (Mackenzie Family, #3) by Linda Howard on the list.

Lara | 2335 comments I'll have some fun digging in my library for this one!


message 9: by Lara (new)

Lara | 2335 comments That first list has a lot of SFR and PNR titles it seems. Maybe I'll check out something new...


message 10: by Lara (new)

Lara | 2335 comments Secret baby books (which I try to avoid) often fit this theme as well. I'm reading one now: Melting into You (Due South, #2) by Tracey Alvarez . It takes place on an island in southern New Zealand and has some fun family and friend relationships.


message 11: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (laurenjberman) I have Cold Night, Warm Stranger by Jill Gregory on my TBR


message 12: by Nichole (new)

Nichole | 512 comments I'll be reading Rule (Marked Men, #1) by Jay Crownover and maybe One Night of Sin (After Hours, #1) by Elle Kennedy .


message 13: by D.G. (new)

D.G. Can I say that picture of those babies kissing is adorable??

Not sure what to read yet! It seems like a lot of books have this theme so I should be able to find something.


message 14: by Lara (new)

Lara | 2335 comments I've found a few that I think will work. I'm considering these: This Heart of Mine (Chicago Stars, #5) by Susan Elizabeth Phillips Friends Without Benefits (Knitting in the City, #2) by Penny Reid Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake (Love By Numbers, #1) by Sarah MacLean Venetia by Georgette Heyer among others.


.•*¨`*•✿ ✿•*¨`*•. Christine .•*¨`*•✿ ✿•*¨`*• I think I'll go historical romance on this one.

Bookcrazy | 327 comments I've read Deep (Stage Dive, #4) by Kylie Scott . I really liked it. Sadly it's the last book of the Stage Dive series :,-/


Danielle  Gypsy Soul (afdaniellet) Finished Lick (Stage Dive, #1) by Kylie Scott . I really loved this book! Not something I would normally pick for myself either but I couldn't put it down. Now I will have to read the rest of the series.
