    Walk of Shame

    Lauren Layne is the queen of romance, and this is one of her best. Spunky New York socialite Georgianna and cynical divorce lawyer Andrew share an apartment building—and a love for getting under the other’s skin. But when their sparring leads to real sparks, they must decide if their opposing lifestyles can survive a real-world relationship. This novel has everything: a sick scene (my catnip), references to the movie Enchanted (swoon), whip-smart banter, and serious steam.

    Breathe the Sky

    Mari Tucker is a soft-spoken biologist charged with protecting native wildlife on construction sites—and Jack Wyatt is the rough-around-the-edges, surly foreman who wants her gone. Jack’s the ultimate gruff, shy hero we love to root for, and Mari, the strong, smart heroine who draws him out. I loved the pacing and development of their relationship, which was emotionally layered and unrushed (their sweet first date scene had me grinning like an idiot). Breathe the Sky is a moving, sneaks-up-on-you opposites-attract romance with real heart.

    The Thing About Love

    Ultra-competitive FBI agents Jessica Harlow and John Shepherd clashed during their training at Quantico, then went their separate ways. Six years later, they’re paired up as part of a sting operation and forced to hole up at a romantic beachfront resort as part of the investigation (you know what that means—there’s only one bed!) Julie James nails the tension between these two, seamlessly balancing banter and heat (and I loved the inside look at FBI training).

    Paris Is Always a Good Idea

    Workaholic Chelsea Martin decides to retrace her steps from the post-college gap year she spent in Ireland, France, and Italy, intending to find out if the flings she had with Colin, Jean Claude, and Marcelino were meant to be more—but when her annoying coworker, Jason, crashes her trip, she finds love in the place she least expects. This book combines so many of my obsessions: fantasy travel all over Europe (and an Eiffel Tower kiss!), family ties, an adorable love interest, a charming cast of characters, and more. The perfect pandemic read for all of us with wanderlust!

    Last Tang Standing

    For workaholic but dutiful Chinese-Malaysian daughter Andrea Tang, the weight of familial expectations is impossible to ignore—but so are the men life keeps throwing in Andrea’s path, like Suresh Aditparan, her annoyingly attractive rival she’s up against for partner and the last man she should be spending time with. In Last Tang Standing, Lauren Ho gives us a hilarious peek into Singaporean culture, and her brilliant, bitingly sarcastic voice had me in stitches.
