May 2019 Most Anticipated Romance Book Releases

Hello Everyone

So finally the month of May has arrived and luckily it brings along with release date of 7 novels I have been looking forward to read now for months. These romance contemporaries have been tempting me with their synopsis for a long time and finally their release month has arrived . This list is a mix of both Adult & YA books. I hope you add a few of them to your lists.


1. Somewhere Only We Know by Maurene Goo


Goodreads Synopsis

10 00 p.m.: Lucky is the biggest K-pop star on the scene, and she’s just performed her hit song “Heartbeat” in Hong Kong to thousands of adoring fans. She’s about to debut on The Tonight Show in America, hopefully a breakout performance for her career. But right now? She’s in her fancy hotel, trying to fall asleep but dying for a hamburger.

11 00 p.m.: Jack is sneaking into a fancy hotel, on assignment for his tabloid job that he keeps secret from his parents. On his way out of the hotel, he runs into a girl wearing slippers, a girl who is single-mindedly determined to find a hamburger. She looks kind of familiar. She’s very cute. He’s maybe curious.

12:00 a.m.: Nothing will ever be the same.

WHY I WANT TO READ IT ?

It’s a loose retelling of the ever enchanting movie The Roman Holiday which I really loved and I want to see what the author does with it .

2. Passion On Park Avenue by Lauren Layne

Goodreads Synopsis

For as long as she can remember, Bronx-born Naomi Powell has had one goal: to prove her worth among the Upper East Side elite—the same people for which her mom worked as a housekeeper. Now, as the strongminded, sassy CEO of one of the biggest jewelry empires in the country, Naomi finally has exactly what she wants—but it’s going to take more than just the right address to make Manhattan’s upper class stop treating her like an outsider.

The worst offender is her new neighbor, Oliver Cunningham—the grown son of the very family Naomi’s mother used to work for. Oliver used to torment Naomi when they were children, and as a ridiculously attractive adult, he’s tormenting her in entirely different ways. Now they find themselves engaged in a battle-of-wills that will either consume or destroy them…

WHY I WANT TO READ IT ?

Who doesn’t enjoy a good lovers to haters Rom Com . The plus points being their childhood dynamic and a plot in which both the characters are super successful.

3. Fake It Till You Break It by Jenn P. Nguyen


Goodreads Synopsis

Mia and Jake have known each other their whole lives. They’ve endured summer vacations, Sunday brunches, even dentist visits together. Their mothers, who are best friends, are convinced that Mia and Jake would be the perfect couple, even though they can’t stand to be in the same room together.

After Mia’s mom turns away yet another cute boy, Mia and Jake decide they’ve have had enough. Together, they hatch a plan to get their moms off their backs. Permanently. All they have to do is pretend to date and then stage the worst breakup of all time—and then they’ll be free.

The only problem is, maybe Jake and Mia don’t hate each other as much as they once thought…

WHY I WANT TO READ IT .?

I really enjoyed the last book by the author (which was also her first)- The Way To Game The Walk Of Shame . Which was an amazing book and opened me to the various books under the imprint Swoon Reads . So obviously I am excited for her second book plus it also has fake dating & haters to lovers which are my favourite romance arc’s.

RELEASE DATE : 28th MAY


4. The Key To Happily Ever After by Tif Marcelo


Goodreads Synopsis

The de la Rosa family and their wedding planning business have been creating happily ever afters in the Washington, DC area for years, making even the most difficult bride’s day a fairytale. But when their parents announce their retirement, the sisters—Marisol, Janelyn, and Pearl—are determined to take over the business themselves.

But the sisters quickly discover that the wedding business isn’t all rings and roses. There are brides whose moods can change at the drop of a hat; grooms who want to control every part of the process; and couples who argue until their big day. As emotions run high, the de la Rosa sisters quickly realize one thing: even when disaster strikes—whether it’s a wardrobe malfunction or a snowmageddon in the middle of a spring wedding—they’ll always have each other.

WHY I WANT TO READ IT ?

Cause it revolves around wedding planning , sister hood where for sure emotions are going to get high and will be all over the place. And also cause I have this inkling that it will be funny and romantic at the same time.

RELEASE DATE : 14 th MAY


5. Love You , Love You Not by Jo Watson


Goodreads Synopsis

Poppy Peterson is about to be evicted if she doesn’t pay her rent. She used to be an actress on a telenovela until her character, Ramona Gonzalez, Executive Administrative Assistant to the CEO, was killed off. Unfortunately, dead characters can’t pay the bills.

Ryan Stark is a tough boss – especially if you’re his assistant. He’s been through five in the last two months and now no one wants to work for him. He needs an assistant who can meet his demands. And he can be very demanding.

Poppy’s been an assistant before – well, on screen anyway. It can’t be that hard to do in real life, right?

Two things are for sure. Poppy is about to play the role of a lifetime. And Ryan is about to learn a whole new lesson about what’s really important in life.

WHY I WANT TO READ IT ?

Just reading and visualizing the synopsis I am laughing so I can for sure feel that this is a going to be a hilarious read . And I have just heard such good things about this author so this feel like the perfect book to start my reading relationship with her books.

6. The Boy Next Story (Bookish Boyfriends # 2) by Tiffany Schmidt


Goodreads Synopsis

There’s no one better than the boy next door. At least not according to Aurora Campbell, fourteen, who has been in love with Tobias May since their very first sandbox kiss. The problem is, he’s in love with her older sister, Merrilee. And Merri is already dating one of his best friends.

Rory is learning all about pining as her class reads The Great Gatsby, a book she doesn’t find “great” at all. Also not great—her GPA, something she needs to fix, quickly, if she’d like to apply for the chance to spend a week studying art with her hero in New York City over winter break. But when Ms. Gregoire assigns her to read Little Women for extra credit, Rory discovers more than she expected—both about herself and Toby. Maybe she wasn’t in love with the boy next door. . . but the boy next story.

Love is complicated, and it’s all about to get even trickier for Rory at Reginald R. Hero Prep . . . where with the help of one quirky English teacher, students’ fantasies come true, often with surprising consequences.

WHY I WANT TO READ IT ?

A few weeks back I read the first book in the series and it was absolutely amazing from the very first line . The author had done such a good job. And that’s the reason why I wanted to read the second part . Luckily this is the only book of which I have a proof and thanks to the publishers I just received a paperback finished copy yesterday . So you can imagine how excited and over the moon I must be to read it.

RELEASE DATE : 21 st MAY


7. Star Crossed by Minnie Darke


Goodreads Synopsis

When childhood sweethearts Justine (Sagittarius and serious skeptic) and Nick (Aquarius and true believer) bump into each other as adults, a life-changing love affair seems inevitable. To Justine, anyway. Especially when she learns Nick is an astrological devotee, whose decisions are guided by the stars, and more specifically, by the horoscopes in his favorite magazine. The same magazine Justine happens to write for. As Nick continues to not fall headlong in love with her, Justine decides to take Nick’s horoscope, and Fate itself, into her own hands. But, of course, Nick is not the only Aquarius making important life choices according to what is written in the stars.

WHY I WANT TO READ IT .?

I am not a believer in astrology and stars but after reading the book Summer Of Supernovas by Darcy Woods I realised that it was something I enjoyed reading . Cause the conflict around whether to believe it or not is pretty fun to read . And I believe I have been waiting for this book for the past 6 months so thank god the release month has finally arrived.

RELEASE DATE : 21st MAY
