Look, we’ve made it clear that we’re not big fans of Kindle Unlimited. It’s great in theory, but the system is broken—so broken that it’s unclear at this point if it can even be fixed. And one symptom of the broken system that keeps popping up over and over again is the “stuffed” book.
What’s a stuffed book? Glad you asked.
Who says dirty talk isn’t ever romantic? We’ve got the top 11 dirty-talking heroes to prove it CAN be. Enjoy!
(Warning: Contains spoilers for seasons 1-4 of The 100)
Just to be perfectly clear: I'm a huge fan of this CW post-nuclear-holocaust, dystopian drama and will watch every episode faithfully no matter what. And I understand The 100 is not a romance. Believe me, the writers have made that abundantly clear. But for a show starring young people on the CW, you’d think they’d let at least one happy couple survive, wouldn’t you? Nope. Their track record of breaking the hearts of ‘shippers all over the viewing audience is completely in tact so far. So, with that in mind, here are my picks for the top 7 times The 100 stabbed romance in the heart and let it die, listed in order from merely painful, to “go ahead and kill me” sheer misery:
It’s a universally accepted fact that men who rescue and care for dogs are 75% hotter than men who aren’t animal lovers. Don’t bother looking it up. Trust me on this. You know I’m right. So, with that in mind here are our picks for the top 10 romance heroes who are 75% hotter than other romance heroes because they rescue dogs.
I’m a proud romance reader. Have been since the olden days when Fabio was all over the place and consent wasn’t always as...consent-y as we’d like it to be. (OK, I wasn’t as proud of reading those novels as I am of the novels that are out today, but you get my point.) And romance novels have come sooooooo far since then. There are so many great examples of empowering romance reads that I could talk all day on the subject and never run out of material. So imagine my surprise when I read a study showing that in 2017, the romance genre actually got LESS diverse than it was in prior years.
This Friday the 13th, we’d like to bring to mind images of romance and great reads, rather than the gloom, doom, bad luck, and homicidal maniacs that are usually associated with the day. So, with that in mind, we bring you our top 13 favorite go-to authors (i.e.: authors who have NEVER let us down) and a few of our favorite reads from each. Enjoy!
OK, y’all, I am on an epically bad book streak. I’ve failed to finish so many books lately that I’m starting to get a complex about it. (Is it me? Are these books really good and I’m the only one in the world who doesn’t love them? What’s wrong with me that I hate these books that everyone else seems to love? What if I never read another great book again? GAH!!!) So, here I am, humbly asking all you romance readers out there to help me out. What are YOU reading and loving right now? Here’s what I’m hoping you’ll have for me:
A while back, we did a “best of” list featuring our favorite laugh-out-loud paranormal romances, and some of you said, “but Romance Rehab, what about funny contemporary romances? We NEED them!” So, never let it be said that we’re not givers, because here are our picks for the top 14 CONTEMPORARY romances that might result in snorting and peeing your pants just a little because you’re laughing so hard. (No reading in public, in other words) Enjoy!
