TOP 10 of 2013: Contemporary romances


A five-day celebration of the best of 2013 and what we can expect of 2014 hosted by Fiktshun.
Today's topic is Best of ... reader's choice and I've decided to do contemporary romances since this is the genre that I read the most during 2013.

Day 3: Best Contemporary Romance
Rumor Has It - Jill Shalvis - small town romance featuring a geeky 4th-grade teacher and a war hero

Flirting with Disaster - Ruthie Knox - hot contemporary romance between stammering computer genius/security specialist and his slightly lost and wild high school crush

Louder Than Love - Jessica Topper - rockstar meets suburbia in this heart-breaking love story of an ex metal rock star and widowed librarian trying to rebuild her life

Friends without Benefits - Penny Reid - second chance of love for high school best friends, told with Ms Reid's signature sense of humour and geek-appeal

The Chocolate Heart - Laura Florand - an intense love story between a self-made best chocolatier in Paris and the spoiled, yet emotional neglected billionaire heiress 

The Davina Code - Janet Elizabeth Henderson - a laugh-out-loud funny romance between a struggling actress and a jaded cop on suspension

Unbound - Cara McKenna - an erotic tale of desire, self-esteem, addiction, acceptance and appreciation.

Surviving Raine - Shay Savage - an intense tale of a broken man fighting for survival against nature and his own demons, only to be saved by the love of an amazing woman

Tangled - Emma Chase - a humourous love story told from a male perspective

Sleigh Bells in the Snow - Sarah Morgan - a heart-warming Christmas romance

      You should check it out, together with first book in the series, Neanderthal Seeks Human. They are quirky, funny, a bit unusual contemporary romances :)

  3. I've only read Friends of Benefits, but it was amazing. I plan on trying The Chocolate Heart, Tangled, and Flirting with Disaster next year.
