Price: $12.61

The Roommate is a story that centers around Clara Wheaton, who accepts the invitation of her childhood crush to move cross-country. She ends up moving in with a stranger, Josh, instead, who challenges her etiquettes, predictable nature, and 'socialite' attitude in every way.

Clara gradually realizes that her new living situation might turn into the most scandalous story for the Wheatons. Rosie Danan explores both physical and emotional elements in her latest read, unlike the typical romance stories.

2. In A Holidaze By Christina Lauren

In A Holidaze is a quintessential holiday-perfect romantic read written by Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, who publish together as Christina Lauren. Maelyn Jones is a sad soul who despises her job and regrets making the most epic romantic mistake.

The only thing cheering up Mae is a holiday trip to the Utah cabins, where her love interest resides with his family. She finds herself in a bitter-sweet time loop that keeps on replaying the same holiday mode for her, and she must do something to snap out of it.

3. This Time Next Year By Sophie Cousens
