Weekly New Releases: June 7

by Beth Cranford

Being a romance reader comes with many perks. Chief among which is the sheer number of books we get to look forward to every single week. But there’s a downside to all that choice: the decision paralysis that comes with trying to pinpoint exactly where to start. And, seeing as we are in the business of books—specifically romance books—it seemed wise to take the time to sort through the pile and try to bring some organization to it. For you, of course. This is a purely altruistic act. So, read on to see what books are on offer this week, and what tropes and subgenres they belong to!

Need more romance reads? Mary shared some of her all-time favorite Dark Romances with us last week, while Beth hunted down Romantic Suspense Bites to satiate her craving in a Keyword Round-Up.

I’ve been reading and loving Jackie Lau’s books for years now, and I absolutely cannot wait to dive into this one. A jammed elevator is the start of a friendship — with benefits — between Nicole and David, and please, please, give me this book right now! Lau’s writing is always funny and sexy and engaging so if you aren’t reading her, fix that now!

Aside from the awesome line-up of authors contributing to this LGBTQ+ anthology (and it is fab, you guys), the proceeds from Love is All: Volume Four go to the National Center for Transgender Equality. I can’t think of a better reason to one-click and celebrate Pride Month, can you? P.S. Check back later this week for my chat with Rachel Lacey!

I could rave about Riley Hart for days, but rather than do that, I’ll instead tell you that I am champing at the bit to get my hands on Messy Love. Danny and Jonathan start as roommates but what starts an easy arrangement leads to more even as Jonathan struggles with being out and Danny tries to show him how to lighten up a little. GIMME.

Lauren Blakely was one of the first Contemporary romance authors I read, and I will always have a place on my bookshelf for her. Especially when there’s a baseball player lusting after the coach’s daughter, putting his career in jeopardy. With second chance vibes and a V-card to be taken care of, the only thing left for me to do is start reading ASAP.

About Beth

Beth Cranford was born and raised in Australia, but followed her heart (and her husband) to the United States in her late 20s. As the mother of two kids, she’s learned that you can turn anything into a song and that slime does not belong in carpeted areas (or polite society). You can most often find her with her Kindle in hand, listening to Taylor Swift on repeat, or spending way too many hours playing Animal Crossing.
