What Are Those 10 Contemporary Romance Books Most Readers Prefer?

Are you trying to detoxify yourself from social medias? Or, do you need to recharge yourself because you met many people at a party? What is better than reading a book in this period? A sweet cup of tea, setting Sun in the West, cold breeze that hits on one’s face and a book, what could be a better setting than this? Sure some might argue that one can binge Netflix shows but in my personal opinion, I don’t feel productive in such situations. Today, we will follow through 10 contemporary romance books most of the readers prefer.

While a thrilling mystery or enlightening non-fiction will grab your attention and make you think, a good romantic book can make you feel good and turn the pages. It is difficult not to read some of the best works in the romantic literature. And who doesn’t love, well, love? Whether you are settled with the Noah to your Allie or you are diving into the pool of dating, a romantic book in your bookshelf will help you giving perspective on life and relationships.

Cute and fit for any romance lover, “Act Your Age, Eve Brown” surrounds Eve, a certified hot-mess and Jacob, the owner of an understaffed bed and breakfast. When Eve tries to melt Jacob’s frosty exterior of stress and closed-off-ness, it becomes impeccably good.

2. “The Song of Achilles” by Madeline Miller

A Greek Mythological retelling of the story of Achilles, this book is so well written and it’s a romance about Patroclus and Achilles that’s accurate to the myth. It’s tragic but so good.

Red, White and Royal Blue is about the First Son of the United States and the Prince of England.
