Hello bloggers, you have caught me in my lunch break university, and after a morning of read, referencing and general panic I thought I deserved a couple of minutes to write to you and answer the question of today which is your favourite romance book.
Firstly, I have a problem with the question! How could anyone pick! I am going to be a general pain and not pick one but write about a couple of my favourite romance books because I am a sucker for a good romantic book!
Alternative: If you’re looking for something a little different in the romance category Addition by Toni Jordan in an absolute stunner.
‘Grace Lisa Vandenburg counts. The letters in her name (19). The steps she takes every morning to the local caf? (920). The number of poppy seeds on her orange cake, which dictates the number of bites she’ll take to eat it. Grace counts everything, because that way there are no unpleasant surprises. Seamus Joseph O’Reilly (also a 19) thinks she might be better off without the counting. If she could hold down a job, say. Or open her cupboards without conducting an inventory, or leave her flat without measuring the walls. Grace’s problem is that Seamus doesn’t count. Her other problem is . . . he does. As Grace struggles to balance a new relationship with old habits, to find a way to change while staying true to herself, she realises that nothing is more chaotic than love.

Or maybe the Chocolate Run by Dorothy Koomson will take your fancy? Another slightly different love story.
Amber Salpone doesn’t mean to keep ending up in bed with her friend Greg Walterson, but she can’t help herself. And every time it ‘just happens’ their secret affair moves closer to being a real relationship, which is a big problem when he’s a womaniser and she’s a commitment-phobe.
While Amber struggles to accept her new feelings for Greg, she also realises that her closeness to Jen, her best friend, is slipping away and the two of them are becoming virtual strangers. Slowly but surely, as the stark truths of all their lives are revealed, Amber has to confront the fact that chocolate can’t cure everything and sometimes running away isn’t an option . . .
The Chocolate Run is a delectable tale of lust, love and chocolate.

Finally my third favourite is another slightly different love story is….. On mystic Lake by Kristin Hannah
Annie Colwater’s husband has just confessed that he’s in love with a younger woman. Devastated, Annie retreats to the small town where she grew up. There she is reunited with her first love, Nick Delacroix, a recent widower who is unable to cope with his silent, emotionally scarred young daughter. Together the three of them begin to heal. But just when Annie believes she’s been given a second chance at happiness, her world is turned upside down again and she is forced to make a choice that no woman in love should ever have to make.
Another stunner of a book! Each of these is a little different and that’s what makes these some of my favourite romance books! Ciao
