Thread: Romance / love book recommendation required please

    Romance / love book recommendation required please

    My friend said that she "wants to read a novel that makes her believe in ROMANCEEEEE"

    Hi, that's a quote from my friend. We've just started a BOOK CLUB between the three of us on WhatsApp so need a book that has plenty to discuss.

    None of us has ever read a "proper' romance novel. I would really like to experience a rip roaring romance …. you know the kind with passion, lust, stars, yearning, moonlight, love, the kiss.

    A nice book. Less adult than 50 Shades of Grey ..... if you know what I mean.

    I'm thinking romance that I imagine may be sold by Mills & Boon ….. though I have never read a Mills & Boon book


    Recommendations please. Thank you.

    Love Story by Eric Segal is a classic. Also: The Notebook and A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks.

    Just to start the ball rollin'....

    Anything by Mariana Zapata. She writes slow-burn romances that are just WONDERFUL. She's a relatively new author - mostly published on Amazon, though she's starting to catch steam in other formats. Some of her earlier works do have a few typos and such, but I enjoy her writing so much that I can easily overlook them. "Kulti" is probably my favorite, but I love them all!

    Hello, thanks for you recommendations. Have looked at the author on Amazon and she's got alot of fans. Lots of 5 STARS.

    Was having a giggle with my book club friends about SLOW BURN love and INSTALOVE.

    We decided we want INSTALOVE... need to get into heart pounding passion ASAP.

    We think that SLOW BURN may mean that the couple develop love over a long time and then just plod along. Is that right?

    I'm very grateful for your suggestion.

    I wouldn't call it a plod, but it definitely takes a while to get to the steamy bits if you know what I mean. Half the books she writes are along the lines of "good friends who fall for each other" and the other half are more "two people can't stand each other but then learn to love each other". I am a sucker for character development and delayed gratification so I really enjoy the torture lol. (Think "You've Got Mail".) I get that not everyone likes that.

    Good friends don't eventually fall in love. There just shy to reveal that they fancy each other.

    If they eventually fall in love they're just saying it for the sake of it. Really they've not met anyone else along the way and are settling for the friend

    I thought I would have received many suggestions by now. I'm surprised. I really thought mine was an easy post to get responses and people would be so keen to reveal their favourite romances
