We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This By Rachel Lynn Solomon
If you’re a fan of rom-coms, then you’ll enjoy reading We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This. This wedding-themed novel revolves around Quinn Berkowitz and Tarek Mansour, whose families have been in the wedding business for years.

The Layover By Lacy Waldon
We’ve all heard the phrase “love is in the air,” but The Layover takes it in the most literal sense ever. The story is about Ava, a flight attendant who is finally ready to start over after serving in her field for ten years.
But before she signs off, she must take one last flight, and that too, with the absurdly charming former pilot Jack Stone. Things get even more complicated when a technical fault in the plane results in an emergency landing and a weekend layover stacking the two of them together.
To Sir, With Love By Lauren Layne
To Sir, With Love is an immersive, light-hearted rom-com that tells the story of Gracie Cooper, who takes over her father’s champagne shop after his death. However, she needs to keep things running smoothly, or else the annoyingly handsome Sebastian Andrews will buy it out.
To resolve her problems, Gracie confides in an unknown man, Sir, whom she meets on a blind dating app. However, she later discovers that she’s already seen him in real life, and it was sheer hatred at first sight.
