Tropes: Small Town, Cowboy, Workplace Romance, Reverse Grumpy x Sunshine, Forbidden Love

If you like “The Longest Ride” then you’re gonna love this book. “Flawless” is the first book in the chestnut spring series and all of them are interconnected standalones. (If you need the guide I’ll be posting soon). This book follows Rhett and summer.

Rhett is a professional bull rider and gets into a scandal about not liking milk? Yup and that’s how his reputation goes downhill from losing his brand deals and sponsorship. So in order to clean his image his publicists assigned Summer (Who also happens to be his daughter) to move in with him in his ranch to babysit him and make sure he doesn’t do anything to make the situation worse. And we can guess what happens from there… (Search up for trigger warning)*

Tropes: Sports Romance / Hockey, Ex Hockey Player x Actress, Caretaking, He cooks for her

“Emma met a boy with eyes like a man
Turns out her heart fits right in the palm of his hand
Now he’ll be her shelter when it rains
Little does he know, his whole world’s about to change”

Not me realizing Taylor Swift wrote “when Emma falls in love” about Emma in this book. Emma Maron is a popular actress in the hit tv series “Dark Castle” but soon her character gets killed off and she no longer has a job. To share this news and get some comfort she arrives home to find her cheating boyfriend. And she definitely needs a break so she escapes to a gorgeous villa only to find she’s not alone with a similar situation.

Her next door neighbor Lucian Osmond, is an ex hockey player who retired right after his injury and is currently living in his grandma’s villa. As they bump into each other they discover more about themselves and they only grow closer—and their broken pieces just might fit together and make them whole.

Also If you like the British bake off you’ll definitely love this book because our broken hero makes the best tarts and cream cakes you can’t resist!

10. Saving 6 by Chloe Walsh

Via Goodreads / Pinterest

Tropes: Addiction, Friends to Lovers, Grumpy x Sunshine, Angst, Grief, Trauma, Found Family, It’s always been you 

I remember spending HOURS AND HOURS finding little crumbs of this book all over the internet back in September last year only to not have enough courage to start the duet now. Saving 6 and Redeeming 6 are the 3rd and 4th books in the boys of Tommen series.

It’s about Joey and Aoife who are childhood best friends to lovers. It follows their timeline from 12 to 18 years and especially the same time as the first two books as a lot happens in them but it deals with way more heavier subjects. So if you can handle the tw’s I’d highly recommend starting this series in order. (Search up for trigger warning)*
