The 10 Best Romance Novels of 2017

Best romance novels of 2017


The romance novels had a good year in 2017. Truly, the past few years have been amazing for the genre. Ever since the crazy 50 Shades of Grey mania the genre is more popular than ever. Particularly the erotic romance. We've been following the new titles closely as you can see on our erotic romance novels you must read post.

When we pick our romance novels we are looking for few things: a unique heroine that has truly a personality that you will remember, a hero that's not just physically strong (even though it's important, we are really tired of the same dumb muscular heroes in every novel), and the chemistry between the characters that just doesn't let you put the book down. Characters that you just want to see together at the end of the book and not start hating one of them halfway in it (I'm looking at you 50 Shades of Grey!)


Best Romance Novels of 2017

Before you read our list, I just want to say that these are the best romance novels of 2017 according to us. Many of you may disagree with the novels on this list or think that we missed some, in this case just let us know in the comment section. 


Best romance novels : Something in the Way by Jessica Hawkins

This is a book that you can read in one sitting. It is the first book of a the trilogy. The plot isn't anything complicated and it's nice light read. It is basically a story about a young girl falling in love with a young man working on a constructions site next to her house. A sweet, passionate love story from the 90s. What makes this novel one of the best romance novels of 2017 in my opinion is the the fully engaging developments and the amazing characterization. Beautifully written start of what seems to be a really good series. I can't wait for the next parts!




Best romance novels: Love in Lingerie by Alessandra Torre

The new Alessandra Torre book - Love in Lingerie! The author of one of our favorite romance novels Black Lies that we featured on our site before is coming with a new book and we are very excited about it. Actually Black Lies was released in January but we didn't have the chance to read it yet. Based on the amazing reviews on Goodreads and reviews we found about it on some of our friends' books blogs we decided to include it on our list. As it's a tradition for A. Torre, this is not your usual romance. It's another amazing mix of great story telling, hot forbidden romance with emotional depth, surprises and even humor.




Best romance novels: Love My Way by Kate Sterritt

Kate Sterritt is a new author we fell in love with. We loved Love My Way so much that there was no way to not include it on our best romance novels list. It is not an easy and fast read. It will make you feel very emotional. A story about Emerson who tries to navigate her way through life from a ten year old lonely little girl to a lonely heartbroken woman. An amazing book about the first love and the next love and dealing with a great heartache. Maybe our favorite book on the entire list.




Best romance novels : Under Her

Under Her by Samantha Towle is another amazing romance novel that you must read in 2017. In my opinion is one of the best contemporary romance novels published this year. New, refreshing, fun and absolutely enjoyable read, written in male's POV.
