I came across this tag on LexiRoseReads.

What’s the first contemporary romance you remember reading?

Sushi for Beginners by Marian Keyes. It was released in 2000 which makes me feel so dang old right now. I read this as a teenager when I was moving away from Stephen King books. Sushi for Beginners is set in Ireland and centers around three women. Two are friends and two work together. I guess this type of book is more often classed as Chick Lit or Women’s Fiction but it definitely still counts as contemporary romance. As a teen, I absolutely loved the romance between Aisling and the male main character. I can’t remember his name but they worked together and didn’t get along at first.

What’s the last contemporary romance you read?

Insatiable by Melanie Harlow. This was a sweet but pretty darn steamy small-town friends-to-lovers story. It’s the third book in a series but can be read as a standalone. It’s my first book by Harlow and I look forward to reading more.

Who are your favorite contemporary romance authors?

Emily Henry, Sally Thorne, and Penny Reid.

What book do you recommend to a contemporary romance beginner?

Book Lovers by Emily Henry would be a good place to start. The romance flows nicely with excellent banter and the character development is just fabulous.

What are you favorite and least favorite contemporary romance tropes?

Favourite is enemies-to-lovers and least favourite is second-chance.

What are your favorite contemporary romance settings?

I really enjoy small-town books which surprises me cause it’s not something I would ever have looked for.

What was your favorite contemporary romance you read last year?

Getaway Girl by Tessa Bailey. It’s a friends-to-lovers story with so much pining. I love a pining hero 😍

What are your top three all-time favorite contemporary romance reads?

  1. Ten Trends to Seduce Your Bestfriend by Penny Reid
  2. The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
  3. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

What are your most anticipated contemporary romance releases this year?

I’m weirdly not too excited about an contemporary releases…. There are a few paranormal and fantasy releases I’m really looking forward to but no contemporary.
