Do you love to read as many romance books as possible?
For many years, romance was THE genre for me. I read mainly traditionally published authors until indie authors became my go to writers. And since then, I seem to be always on a budget. So, Kindle Unlimited is one of the best ways to read tons of books on a wallet friendly budget.
But I also realized that although there were thousands of KU romance books available, finding GREAT KU books was like finding a needle in a haystack – an impossible feat.
I’m not lying when I say that from 20 KU books I downloaded, I usually DNFed 80%. That’s not a great ratio.
So, I thought I’ll make it easy on my fellow romance novel reader, and compile a list of all the romance books I READ & ENJOYED and that are currently (at time of this blog post) available with KU.
Because if you know where to look, you can find great books to read for a small amount of money.
This is my way of going about KU:
I usually make a Kindle Unlimited list on Amazon (wishlist) and start collecting KU books that sound interesting until my wishlist has a good amount of books collected. Then I sign up with KU for a couple months, read them all, and cancel again.
The nice thing is that Kindle Unlimited has something for everyone. AND, some KU books come with FREE audiobooks!!!!! That’s a BIG BONUS!!!
I mean it when I say that Kindle Unlimited has amazing authors available, you just have to know where to look.
And if you want to find out who my FAVORITE KINDLE UNLIMITED AUTHORS are, I have a list for you too.
And I just wanted to mention that at the moment you can get a 6 month subscription for $8 a month, and read ALL the books below.

ROMANCE NOVEL RECOMMENDATIONS
Mister Weston (former Turbulence) by Whitney G. | a must read sexy romance with banter and an alpha jerk
The first night I met Gillian Taylor, she claimed she was a pilot. Then she claimed she worked for a “private airline.”
I knew right then and there that she was lying to me, and that sexy as hell or not, she was the type of woman I needed to avoid.
Still, after a pleasurable one night stand, I was certain we’d never see each other again. That we didn’t need to see each other again.
Until I saw her in an airport a few weeks later…
Until I realized that we were both assigned to work the same flight.
She was the flight attendant.
I was the pilot.
Those two facts should’ve cemented the main reason why we needed to keep things professional and follow the rules, but I couldn’t stay away from her, and our forbidden affair was about to get far more turbulent than I’d ever imagined.
Regretting You by Colleen Hoover | my first 5 star book by CoHo

The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.
While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.

Rich Prick: A Shy Girl Bad Boy Sports Romance by Tijan | a favorite YA novel | a favorite re-read

I guess that’s what happens when you’re a prick, rich, and you’re best friends with the ruling school’s king.

That’s all fine.
I mean, I have nothing to do with them.
I’m a loner, invisible, and that’s how I wanted it to be.

iUntil I couldn’t look away.
Until he caught me watching.
His name is Blaise Devroe. My name is Aspen Monson.
He only knew how to get, command, and demand attention. I knew how to do everything but that.
And this is our story.
Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas | forbidden but sweet
He took me in when I had nowhere else to go.
He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. iHe doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe.
He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work.
I have to stop this. It can’t happen.
My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable.
Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one.
I took her in, because I thought I was helping.
She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement.
As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to.
The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me.
But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight.
And her boyfriend’s father.
Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house.

Making Faces by Amy Harmon | most beautiful YA novel
Ambrose Young was beautiful. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She’d been reading them since she was thirteen. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have…until he wasn’t beautiful anymore.
Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl’s love for a broken boy, and a wounded warrior’s love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast, where we discover that there is a little beauty and a little beast in all of us.

Dear Mister.. . . no, too formal.
Hey there sweet cheeks. . . no, too forward.
To whom it may concern,
Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.
I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?
So here I am, being open and honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.
I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. But what they don’t know is your bark is worse than your bite. And that bite doesn’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.
For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.
And as long as we’re being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you exactly who’s boss.
Two Weeks Notice by Whitney G | sexy romance with amazing banter
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter to formally announce my resignation from Parker International (& the arrogant, condescending CEO) effective two weeks from today.
This was a VERY EASY decision to make, as the past two years have been utterly miserable. I wish his next executive assistant all the luck in the world (she’ll need it) and if my boss should need me to do anything over the next two weeks, kindly tell him that he can do it [his] goddamn self…
Sincerely (Not Really),
That’s the version of my two weeks’ notice I should’ve sent to my boss, because the more professional version–the one where I said I was “grateful for all the opportunities,” and “honored by all the rewarding experiences” over the years?
That letter was rejected with his sexy, trademark smirk and an “I highly suggest you read the fine print of your contract…”
So, I did.
And now I’ve realized that unless I fake my death, poison him, or find a way to renegotiate my impossible contract, I’m stuck working under one of the cockiest and most ruthless bosses in New York.
Then again, I thought that was the case until he called me late last night with an emergency proposition…

The Wolf Hotel: Complete Series by KA Tucker | very SEXY

Henry Wolf, that is.
Heir to a luxury hotel chain.
And my new boss.
Why he wants me, Abbi Mitchell—a girl who lacks experience on every front that would matter to him—as his personal assistant, I cannot fathom, especially when I keep screwing up in the most spectacular way.
Did I already mention he’s a bastard?
A beautiful, moody one, who’s quick to demand, slow to apologize.
And toying with me every chance he gets.
Messing with my head in a way that makes my body crave him.
He knows it, and he doesn’t hide the fact that he enjoys doing it.
iHe says he doesn’t want me for more than my mediocre computer skills and color-coding flair.
He says he’s not willing to risk losing his empire for a tangle in the sheets with “the help.”
But I’m beginning to think that’s a big, dirty lie.
