#14 Books Like Book Lovers

One season, rivals in form of two, and a storyline turn they weren’t expecting. The only thing Nora Stephens has ever done in her life is read books, therefore she is not the typical heroine. Not the strong-willed woman, not the carefree dream girl, and certainly not the sweetheart. In reality, the only people who view Nora as a hero are her clients—for whom she secures sizable deals in her role as a ruthless literary agent—and her cherished little sister Libby.

So when Libby encourages her to take a sisters’ trip away, she decides to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the entire month of August. She has images of Nora going through a small-town makeover because she is certain that Nora needs to become the protagonist of her own tale. Nora, however, continues running into Charlie Lastra, a bookish, brooding editor from back in the city, instead of going on picnics in the meadows or running into gorgeous rural doctors or bulging-forearm bartenders. If they had never met before and it hadn’t been cute, it would be a meet-cute.

#20 The Spanish Love Deception

The Spanish Love Deception is a classic romantic ruse that starts out as “let’s pretend to date for some reason” and ends up as “we inadvertently fell in love.” Additionally, there are several “enemies to lovers” and spice sequences in there (which were good but not the best tbh). This is the one thing that I can think of that sets “The Spanish Love Deception” apart from other contemporary romances I’ve read. It also makes an attempt to critique sexism and roles that people presume are “for women,” which I thought was intriguing.

If you’re interested in the plot, it concerns a female who serves as the chief of staff for a firm and a hot guy who persistently pursues her despite their mutual animosity (so original). Then, since she doesn’t really want her family to learn that she is single and has some conflict with her ex-boyfriend, they have to act like they are dating. You probably have an idea of what occurs next.
