Feature: Best Friends

Contributed by Ashia (Romancing the Books and More)

I’ve always loved the best friend trope in my romances in whatever form–sister/brother’s best friend, best friend’s brother/sister, or the main characters themselves being best friends. There’s something magical in the process of best friends becoming lovers. How did they transition into the new state? What about the angst/conflict they feel?

I’ve read a lot of this trope, and I have to say that not all authors can do it successfully. Or give me so much feelings–good ones.

Here are some romances in 2018 utilizing the “best friend” trope that I’m gonna be checking out:

Check Me Out by Becca Wilhite (Amazon)

Greta loves her job as assistant librarian. She loves her best friend, Will, the high school civics teacher and debate coach. She even loves her mother despite her obvious disappointment that Greta is still single.

Then she meets Mac in the poetry section of the library, and she is smitten. Mac is heart-stoppingly gorgeous and showers her with affection, poetic text messages, and free hot chocolate at the local cafe where he works. The only problem is that he seems to be a different person in his texts that in his face-to-face conversation.

When the Franklin Library is threatened with closure, Greta leaps into action. She arranges for a “battle of the bands” book jam, hosts a book signing by a famous author, and finally, stages a protest that raises more than a few eyebrows.

Through it all, she slowly realizes that it is Will, not Mac, who she turns to for support and encouragement. Mac has the looks; Will has the heart. How can she choose between them?

Check Me Out is a contemporary romance—with just a hint of Cyrano de Bergerac—that reminds us to never judge a book by its cover. Continue reading

Feature: Office Romance

Contributed by Jackie

What could be more exciting than finding a lover in the office? There are pro’s and con’s, as we shall see:

Pro:

  1. Makes you look forward to going to the office
  2. Being with your lover the entire day (you can then make sure he/she is not having any on the side)

Con:

  1. Being with your lover the entire day (doesn’t it get tiring after awhile?)
  2. Destroys your concentration

Okay, the above is just for fun, because honestly, I really love office romances. You’re with this person day in and day out, getting closer everyday, so of course it’s no wonder you’d fall in love.

Here are some romances that I’ve been eyeing:

Beta Test by Annabeth Albert (Amazon).

Player vs. Player. Fight!

Brilliant graphic designer Ravi Tandel is ahead of the game—he’s just been asked to present a top secret project at a huge conference in Seattle. All systems are go…until he learns his buttoned-up office nemesis is coming along for the ride.

Tristan Jones isn’t really the gamer type, but he knows the back end of the video game business inside out. Together, he and Ravi will give an awesome presentation. If they survive the cross-country trip first.

Tossed together in close quarters, Ravi’s shocked to see Tristan’s sexy, softer side emerge from such a conservative shell. He’s less shocked to learn his handsome colleague’s prominent family would never support an out-and-proud son. But Ravi didn’t struggle through his own coming out to hide who he is now. To be together, Tristan will have to push past his fear and ultimately decide: Does he want a future with Ravi? Or is it game over before they’ve even begun? Continue reading

He could be a rake if he means only to steal a kiss but steals your heart as well.
Nearing thirty, the Duke of Rathburne is finally ready to make amends for the wager that caused him and his best friends such scandal, but taking on a ward who needs a husband is a feat he’s not sure he can manage. The last he saw of Miss Marlena Fast, she was a spirited little ruffian, not the sort of bride most bachelors on the marriage mart sought. But one glance at the lovely lady she has become is enough to convince him otherwise…
Orphaned young and shuffled from family to family, Marlena counts on her fierce independence and quick wits to keep herself content. Being the responsibility of a notoriously wicked duke who upended so many lives is an unexpected challenge when she realizes he arouses her decidedly feminine desire. Marlena must be careful. She has her own scandalous secret to protect. If he finds out, will it shatter her chances of a happily-ever-after with the notorious rake?
