    Haha did someone mention reading???

    Im a closet romance nut. The vast majority of books I read have a romance component. I prefer romantic suspense and dark romance though.

    Funny, my love of reading is why i am rarely online anymore. I'd rather pick up my kindle than my phone. And I haven't watched any TV other than The Block in almost 2 years

    I'm trying to lure you over to the dark side again

    I love reading, I need to put social media down and rediscover books I think.

    Oooh I don't mind a good romance. Have t read one in years though as I've been reading a lot of fantasy/supernatural stuff recently.

    Any suggestions on good romances in the last few years?

    Oh goodness thats a loaded question haha.

    What type of romance? If you like romantic comedy try Penny Reid, probably start with Neanderthal Seeks Human. Other funny authors are Meghan Quinn (The Mother Road is probably her funniest) and Alice Claytons books are excellent (Wallbanger and Nuts are my 2 favourites)

    If you like contemporary romance try L.H Cosway, Samantha Young, Kristen Proby, Samantha Towle, Lauren Blakely (Big Rock is a favourite of mine) Karina Halle (she is one of my absolute favourites, Racing The Sun is one of my favourite books, also Love, In English)

    If you dont mind the dark and twisted ones you cant go past LP Lovell and Stevie J Cole (they co write together but warning they are super dark especially Absolution ) TM Frazier is excellent as well and Stylo Fantôm (particularly the mercenaries series and The Bad Ones) is another of my favourites.

    I could sit here all day recommending books. If you want more suggestions feel free to PM me
