New romance book releases coming July 2021 book list.

When you’re always on the hunt for your next favorite book boyfriend (like me!), you can’t help but get excited about all the new romance book releases set to come out in a given month.

The problem is narrowing down your reading list to which books sound the best and which you think can deliver that elusive 5-star rating.

For me, every month it’s a mixture of new romance book releases and throw back titles on my ever-growing reading list.

I like to stay on top of the new releases that really catch my eye but there are often just too many good books that I’m also playing catch up from older titles that I hadn’t had a chance to read yet.

This month’s list of most anticipated new romance book releases draws from several authors whose writing I’ve loved in the past as well as a few new authors I’ve been meaning to check out for some time.

Many titles are also from my Best Summer Reads of 2021 list but there are also a few new additions which had last minute release announcements.

It’s a toss up which book I’m MOST excited to read so I guess I have to make sure I read them all.

Which new romance book release for July 2021 are YOU most excited to read?

Share in your comments below. I’d love to hear it.

My Top 10 Most Anticipated New Romance Book Releases for July 2021

The Mixtape is a new romance book release for July 2021. Check out all of the new romance book releases to read this month in this book list.

The Mixtape
by Brittainy Cherry

Rock Star Romance
July 1, 2021

Working hard to hold it together as a single mother, Emery is no stranger to loneliness which she can see in the rock star who’s taking a seat in her bar. Can these two find solace and hope together or will the world take it apart?

Cherry never fails to bring the emotion in her romance books. I swear that my heart needs a few days recovery time after I read one of her novels but it’s worth it. I’m sure things won’t be any different after reading this new release.

I can’t wait to read how Oliver and Emery come to find solace in each other and escape their loneliness. It’s a must read July release and one of my most anticipated summer reads for 2021.

What If You & Me is a new romance book release for July 2021. Check out all of the new romance book releases to read this month in this book list.

What If You & Me
by Roni Loren

Neighbors to Lovers Romance
July 6, 2021

Andi Lockley knows first-hand that the world can be a scary place after narrowly escaping a dangerous man years ago. Her anxiety doesn’t let her forget it, but she’s channeling her fears into her next horror novel and her true crime podcast.

Former firefighter Hill Dawson can’t sleep and is stuck in limbo. After losing part of his leg in a rescue gone wrong, he doesn’t know what to do with his life, but he’s quick to jump in and save is neighbor Andi when someone breaks in. 

What starts out as a neighbor rescue turns into a chance for something more if Andi can put aside her fear and trust in love again.

Because I loved Yes & I Love You so much, it was a given that I’d be reading Loren’s new release this month. I love to read about two characters down on their luck finally finding something meaningful with another kindred spirit.

I definitely have a thing for tortured romance heroes so I can’t wait to see Hill get his happily ever after.

Scoring With Him book cover

Scoring With Him
by Lauren Blakely

MM Sports Romance
July 9, 2021

I’ve gotten by in the big leagues keeping my one rule in check – don’t date another baseball player. That all changes after one look when the new rookie walks into my locker room.

Grant may get me in ways no one else ever has but that is no excuse for kissing him one night after a game. It’s also shouldn’t be a reason I’m ready to break my own rule when he reveals he’s a virgin and wants me to help him around the bases.

This book had me at MM romance but add in the fact that it’s about two pro baseball players AND one is a virgin?- OMG!

My July TBR list would not be complete without this book which is why it also earned a spot on my list of best summer reads for 2021!

Just be sure to add in book two, which releases this August and completes this duet.

The Spark
by Vi Keeland

Contemporary Romance
July 12

Who knew what leaving the airport with the wrong suitcase would lead me to? Donovan, that’s who. The man with the sexy voice who agreed to meet me for coffee to exchange luggage.

Only coffee led to dinner, to dessert and an entire weekend together. But this man is too good to be true so I ghosted him only to come face to face with him again just when I started dating his boss.

I am so intrigued by this book set up! Vi Keeland, what do you have in store for me?!

She gave me one of the best romance novels of all time last year in The Rivals, so I have high hopes for this July release.

Exposed is a new romance book release for July 2021. Check out all of the new romance book releases to read this month in this book list.

by Kristen Callihan

Rock Star Romance
July 13

Rye, the bassist for Kill John, the biggest rock band in the world, and Brenna, his publicist are like oil and water. But everything changes when he overhears something he shouldn’t: a confession made in a moment of weakness. Now the man Brenna’s tried so hard to ignore is offering her the greatest temptation of all—him.

It’s been over 2 years since the last release in the VIP series so to say that I am beyond excited to FINALLY read Rye’s story is an understatement.

I love it when friends try to add in bedroom shenanigans thinking they can keep it purely physical without feelings getting involved. HAHAHAHA! It never works people, but oh how I love reading how they try. I can’t wait for this one.

It Happened One Summer is a new romance book release for July 2021. Check out all of the new romance book releases to read this month in this book list.

It Happened One Summer
by Tessa Bailey

Romantic Comedy
July 13, 2021

Piper Bellinger may be a fashionable influencer, but when her wild child reputation goes a bit too far and lands her in the slammer, her stepfather cuts her off. Hoping to teach her a lesson, he sends her off to Washington to run her late father’s dive bar where she meets a big surly sea captain who instantly knows she doesn’t belong in their small town.

Brendan figures Piper won’t last a week outside of Beverly Hills even if there is an undeniable attraction between the two opposites.

Piper is determined to prove everyone wrong and can’t risk any distractions, including the feelings she’s beginning to have for the sailor.

Oh, a romance novel with a grumpy hero and a woman who brings him to his knees? Yes please!

I love a good opposites attract romance and this one sounds like the perfect summer read making it a must read on my July list.

Pause is a new romance book release for July 2021. Check out all of the new romance book releases to read this month in this book list.

by Kylie Scott

Contemporary Romance
July 13, 2021

When Anna wakes up from a coma after a car crash, she discovers her husband is now with her best friend and she’s lost her job. While her old life is a distant memory, she’s not quite sure how to move forward. Then she meets the stranger who saved her life during the crash, and he changes everything.

Leif Larsen—tattooist, joker, and player—has his own scars thanks to the crash that put Anna in a coma. Helping her move on from her failed marriage, and create a new life, sounds like a perfect distraction. So when he needs a new roommate, he invites Anna to begin her new life with him.

The audio version of this book actually first released in April of this year but the Kindle version arrives this month and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

I love a romance where two people adrift finally find their way with one another. I’m so intrigued by the connection of these two and look forward to reading it.

Isn’t It Bromantic is a new romance book release for July 2021. Check out all of the new romance book releases to read this month in this book list.

Isn’t It Bromantic?
by Lyssa Kay Adams

Marriage of Convenience Romance
July 20, 2021

Having a Russian journalist as a father who mysteriously disappeared after speaking against the government, Elena Konnikova escaped her country the only way she knew how – by marrying her childhood friend, Vladimir, and moving to the United States.

Vlad is a professional hockey player in Nashville who’s been living with a marriage of convenience and wife he’s determined to make love him. He joined the Bromance Book Club to pick up some pointers and is now ready to create his own epic romance.

With the help of his Bros, Vlad’s senior citizen neighbors and a group of meddling widows will Vlad and Elena be able to find their own happy ever after?

As I noted in my best summer reads of 2021 list, it’s rare to find a romance novel where the characters are already married so I was quick to add this one to my list of books to read this month.

I love the concept behind their marriage of convenience and how it’s Vlad’s desire to find real love with his wife that sparks his drive to change things and write a romance novel!

This will be my first novel by Adams so I have high hopes.

Totally Folked

Small Town Romance
July 20, 2021

Mega movie star Raquel Ezra follows only one rule: always leave them wanting more. But years of always leaving has the starlet longing for something (and perhaps someone) lasting.

When Raquel once again crosses paths with Jackson whom she once spent one unforgettable night with, they must both decide whether it’s more important following their rules or maybe finding something real. 

I’ve been waiting for this book for so long, it was even on my most anticipated romance books of 2020 list!

Finally I’ll get the lowdown on Jackson’s story since he’s been a favorite of mine since reading Reid’s Beauty and the Mustache and Hope Ellis’ Been There Done That.

I’m ready to see this playboy meet his match!

by Louise Bay

July 27

When Nathan ends up having a one night stand with Madison Shore, he never expects to see her again at his London office. Turns out she’s a journalist writing an article about him.

Despite their history, it’s now up to him to convince her and her readers that he’s not the player everyone thinks he is or he’ll lose control of his company.

This has got to the be month that I finally read a Louise Bay book. I have so many on my list but I love a romance where the playboy has to change his reputation.

We’ll see how that goes but I’ll go along for the ride!
