Pretend

Friends to Lovers Romance


After watching her best friend and the man that she’d been in love with her entire life propose to another woman, Morgan decided that it was time to finally move on.

She made plans, plans that Eric didn’t know about and she planned to keep it that way, but unfortunately for her, one bet destroyed everything, leaving her with no choice but to be there for her best friend one last time.

After catching his fiancée cheating on him, Eric Bradford was done wasting his time on women that he had absolutely no hope of falling in love with. He just needed time, a chance to get away, and he just needed…Her.

Determined to figure out how he kept screwing up his life, Eric asks Morgan for one more favor, one that would change everything, and leave him with no choice but to do whatever it takes to stop the one woman that meant everything to him from finally walking away.

When you fall in love with a book series, you never want it to end so when one of your favorite authors decides to release a prequel to one of your favorite series, you cannot help but jump up and down.

I am so excited for Eric and Morgan’s story that started the Neighbors from Hell series!

Off the Map

Releasing March 7, 2023
Forced Proximity Romance


Carla Black’s life motto is “here for a good time, not for a long time.” She’s been traveling the world on her own in her vintage Jeep Wrangler for nearly a decade, stopping only long enough to replenish her adventure fund. She doesn’t do love and she doesn’t ever go home.

Eamon Sullivan is a modern-day cartographer who creates digital maps. His work helps people find their way, but he’s the one who’s lost his sense of direction. He’s unhappy at work, recently dumped, and his one big dream is stalled out—literally.

Fate throws them together when Carla arrives in Dublin for her best friend’s wedding and Eamon is tasked with picking her up from the airport.

But what should be a simple drive across Ireland quickly becomes complicated with chemistry-filled detours, unexpected feelings, and a chance at love – if only they choose it.

I love a good romance book that inspires travel in this book had me at Dublin Ireland. I’m fascinated that this romance book includes a cartographer and hope it has me booking my next trip overseas very soon!

I’m also a sucker for forced proximity romance and can’t wait to see how things heat up in her Jeep in this one.

The Portrait of a Duchess is one of the new romance book releases coming March 2023. Check out the 9 most anticipated, new romance book releases coming March 2023 in this book list from She Reads Romance Books.

The Portrait of a Duchess
by Scarlett Peckham

Releasing March 7, 2023
Historical Romance

An activist painter of radicals and harlots, Cornelia Ludgate dismisses love and marriage as threats to freedom.

But when an inheritance gives her the chance to fund the cause of women’s rights—on the condition she must wed—she is forced to reveal a secret: she’s already married. To a man she hasn’t seen for twenty years.

Oh…and her husband is a duke.

A horse breeder with a clandestine taste for revolution, Rafe Goodwood never expected to become a duke.

But now that the title is his, he is plotting to shock the ruling class with ambitions of reform—and reveal the infamous Cornelia is his duchess. That just presents one problem: he must not fall in love with her—again.

Although determined not to sacrifice her principles for passion, Cornelia is still drawn to the man whose very being threatens her independence.

Hurt too many times, Rafe can’t risk love again—especially with the woman who once shattered his heart. But a conspiracy to upend the inequalities of the aristocracy bring Cornelia and Rafe closer, forcing them to finally decide what—and who—they hold dear.

I adore Scarlett Peckham‘s historical romances, and if you have not yet picked one up, then this is your time to do so!

Her books, get right to the heart of an amazing story with characters that have such amazing back stories and confidence that you love them from the start.

Historical romances with strong heroines are totally my jam and I can’t wait to read this one.

Rocked by Love

Rock Star Romance


Jillian Braden’s quick, creative thinking and fierce determination have helped her singlehandedly build a fashion empire.

She doesn’t mince words and demands respect, but beneath all that armor, she carries the Braden curse of a soft heart. But that soft heart isn’t looking to start a family and doesn’t know the first thing about mollycoddling.

When famed rock star Johnny Bad hires her to design his tour wardrobe and then postpones it at the last minute for the third time, she’s had enough.

Jillian is determined to set him straight, but she isn’t at all prepared for what she finds or for the type of help Johnny Bad really needs.

Why am I so obsessed with rock star heroes?! In the standalone romance in the Bradens and Montgomerys series, Johnny discovers that he has a teenage daughter, and that’s not even the half of it that is going on in his life.

I’m so intrigued by how fashion may also play a role in this romance. Here’s hoping it’s a good one!

Best Friend’s Brother Romance


Bella Marble’s life isn’t what she imagined. Instead of an author, she’s receptionist at a small press. Instead of happily married, she’s single, and her lovey-dovey parents are divorcing.

And to top it off, her best friend of twenty-nine years, Ellie Mathews, is moving out and marrying the heinously boring Mark. Bella feels rudderless, only slightly soothed by time spent with Ellie’s (not hot) brother, Marty (okay, he’s hot. But he’s also the aggravating brother she never had—right)?

When Marty recommends Bella stop looking for “the one” and just have fun, Bella finds a new, empowered side of herself.

But when she posts a fairy-tale retelling of a disastrous one night stand on a storytelling app, all of a sudden, Bella has become @B.Enchanted. And she’s gone viral.

Now, Bella’s in a fight with Ellie, her new roommates are so, deeply, weird, and the pressure is mounting to find new fairy tales to write about—but she’s got to live them first.

I think anyone who has made their way through the online dating scene is going to fall for Luci Adams latest romance!

I can’t wait to see how Ellie’s life changes when she decides to let go and have fun (I’m trying to do more of that in my own life!). And if you’re a fan of best friend’s brother romances, you’ll enjoy this read too!

The Love Wager

Romcom Romance


Hallie Piper is turning over a new leaf. After belly-crawling out of a hotel room (hello, rock bottom), she decides it’s time to become a full-on adult.

She gets a new apartment, a new haircut, and a new wardrobe, but when she logs onto the dating app that she has determined will find her new love, she sees none other than Jack, the guy whose room she snuck out of. 

After agreeing they are absolutely not interested in each other, Jack and Hallie realize they’re each other’s perfect wing-person in their searches for The One.

They text each other about their dates, often scheduling them at the same restaurant so that if things don’t go well, the two of them can get tacos afterward. 

Discouraged by the lack of prospects, Jack and Hallie make a wager to see who can find true love first, but when they agree to be fake dates for a weekend wedding, all bets are off.

As they pretend to be a couple, lines become blurred and they both struggle to remember why the other was a bad idea to begin with.

A romance book based on a bet? I love it, and I’m so down for it! Well, I’m so excited to be a fly on the wall for the dates they go on (plus I love tacos too!), I’m really excited to see what happens during their fake dating wedding weekend. Check out my book review of The Love Wager!

Infamous is one of the new romance book releases coming March 2023. Check out the 9 most anticipated, new romance book releases coming March 2023 in this book list from She Reads Romance Books.

Infamous
by Lex Croucher

Releasing March 21, 2023
Historical Romance

Twenty-two-year-old aspiring writer Edith (“Eddie”) Miller and her best friend Rose have always done everything together—from climbing trees and sneaking bottles of wine, to extensive kissing practice.

But Rose has started talking about marriage, and Eddie is horrified. Why can’t they continue as they always have?

Then Eddie meets charming, renowned poet Nash Nicholson––a rival of Lord Byron, if he does say so himself––and he welcomes her into his world of eccentric artists and boundary-breaking visionaries.

When Eddie receives an invitation to Nash’s crumbling Gothic estate in the countryside, promising inspiration (and time to finish her novel, a long-held dream), she eagerly agrees.

But the pure hedonism and debauchery that ensues isn’t exactly what she had in mind, and Eddie soon finds herself torn between her complicated feelings for Rose and her equally complicated dynamic with Nash, whose increasingly bad behavior doesn’t match up to her vision for her literary hero.

Will Eddie be forced to choose between her friendship with Rose and her literary dreams––or will she be able to write her own happily ever after?

I haven’t yet had a chance to read Lex Croucher’s first novel in the series, Reputation, but I’ve been so intrigued by this series.

This book has a sapphic romance bent to it and I look forward to seeing how all of these relationships unfold.

Cruel King

Fake Relationship Romance

The most eligible bachelor in New York City just asked me to be his fake fiancé.

Gavin King is six and a half feet of delectable billionaire with a devil’s smile that says he knows exactly what he’s going to do to me later. Because he has.

Three years ago, I caught him in the shower and promptly fell into his bed. But neither of us were relationship material. Not to mention I’d just broken up with his best friend.

Now, I’m back in the city and he has a plan:

Go to his cousin’s wedding. Convince his family that he’s not an eternal bachelor. Post a huge elaborate break up later.

With those big puppy dog eyes begging me to agree, claiming I’m the only one who can pull it off, I say yes. What could go wrong? Other than pulling it off so successfully that the line between real and fake blurs.

When my family flips the whole script, I can’t see a way out. And I’m starting to wonder if I even want one.

Not going to lie I want to pick up this romance book just to relive their moment from three years ago!

But, I am also a fan of fake relationship romance books and if we’re talking about a billionaire bachelor I’m all in with this one.
