1. Every Summer After by Carley Fortune

If you are looking for beach reads, this book comes up. It’s very popular, and with a good reason.

On Goodreads it has more than 325,000 ratings, and it’s rated with a 4.27. In my book, that is an amazing accomplishment. It doesn’t happen often.

I had to read this book because it was the book of the month for my book club. I planned to read this book in a couple of days, but I enjoyed so much, that I ended up reading it all in one day.

They say you can never go home again, and for Persephone Fraser, ever since she made the biggest mistake of her life a decade ago, that has felt too true.

Instead of glittering summers on the lakeshore of her childhood, she spends them in a stylish apartment in the city, going out with friends, and keeping everyone a safe distance from her heart.

Until she receives the call that sends her racing back to Barry’s Bay and into the orbit of Sam Florek—the man she never thought she’d have to live without.

For six summers, through hazy afternoons on the water and warm summer nights working in his family’s restaurant and curling up together with books—medical textbooks for him and work-in-progress horror short stories for her—Percy and Sam had been inseparable.

Eventually that friendship turned into something breathtakingly more, before it fell spectacularly apart.

When Percy returns to the lake for Sam’s mother’s funeral, their connection is as undeniable as it had always been.

But until Percy can confront the decisions she made and the years she’s spent punishing herself for them, they’ll never know whether their love might be bigger than the biggest mistakes of their past. 

Told over the course of six years and one weekend, Every Summer After is a big, sweeping nostalgic look at love and the people and choices that mark us forever.

Six summers to fall in love. One moment to fall apart. A weekend to get it right.

2. The Summer Proposal by Vi Keeland

The Summer Proposal by Vi Keeland. 20 Romance Books To Enjoy During Your Summer Vacation. Beach Reads. Summer Reads. Summer Romance Books. Elephant on the Road

The first time I met Max Yearwood was on a blind date.

Max was insanely gorgeous, funny, and our chemistry was off the charts. He also had the biggest dimples I’d ever laid eyes on.

Exactly what I needed after my breakup. Or so I thought… 

Until my real date arrived.

Turned out, Max wasn’t who I was there to meet. He only pretended to be until my real date showed up. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.

Before he left, he slipped me a ticket to a hockey game a few blocks away, in case things didn’t work out on my actual date.

I tossed the ticket into my purse and went about trying to enjoy the man I was supposed to meet. But my real blind date and I had no connection.

So on my way home, I decided to take a chance and stop by the game. When I arrived, the seat next to me was empty.

Disappointed again, I decided to leave at the end of the period. Just before the buzzer, one of the teams scored, and the entire arena went crazy.

A player’s face flashed up on the Jumbotron. He was wearing a helmet, but I froze when he smiled.
You guessed it: Dimples.

Apparently, my fake blind date hadn’t invited me to watch hockey with him, he’d invited me to watch him play.

And so began my adventure with Max Yearwood.

He was everything I needed at the time—fun, sexy, up for anything, and only around for a few months since he’d signed with a new team three-thousand miles away.

Max proposed we spend the summer helping me forget my ex. It sounded like a good plan. Things couldn’t get too serious when we had an expiration date. Right? 

Though, you know what they say about the best-laid plans.

3. Toe the Line by Penelope Ward

Toe the Line by Penelope Ward. 20 Romance Books To Enjoy During Your Summer Vacation. Beach Reads. Summer Reads. Summer Romance Books. Elephant on the Road

At first, I thought I’d hate spending the summer with Archie Remington—the conceited son of my parents’ friends. 

What I knew about Archie: he was gorgeous, pre-law, and had always treated me like I didn’t exist when we were younger. 

When our families bought a house together on an island in Maine, he and I were forced to share a bathroom.

The boy I remembered was now a full-grown man—but with the same attitude. 

After a rough start, Archie and I unexpectedly started getting along one day and eventually became friends.

We shared secrets and bonded during our morning jogs. I discovered that Archie had a wild spirit and that he struggled to conform to his father’s expectations.

Things were cool until I had to go and ruin it, getting drunk one night, and blurting out my fantasy—involving him.

I took it back, but it was too late. Archie had heard me loud and clear. After that, we never quite knew how to toe the line. 

When that summer came to an abrupt and shocking end, I headed back to college, unsure if anything would ever be the same again. 

Across the miles over the years, he and I stayed in touch as friends, but fate and timing always kept us from becoming more.

You know the saying: If two people are meant to be, they’ll find their way back to each other?

Let’s just say Archie came back into my life in a way I would’ve never expected.

And this time, my heart would really be put to the test.

5. A Chance for Us (Willow Creek Valley #4) by Corinne Michaels

While this romance book is the fourth one in the Willow Creek Valley series, it’s not necessary to read in order.

I don’t know about you, but this cover definitely begs me to take it to the beach this summer.

A Chance for Us (Willow Creek Valley #4) by Corinne Michaels. 20 Romance Books To Enjoy During Your Summer Vacation. Beach Reads. Summer Reads. Summer Romance Books. Elephant on the Road

My marriage started as a lie.

But some lies are worth telling.

My father’s dying wish was to walk me down the aisle, and I’d do anything for him. 

Even marry a man I don’t love.

So when my fiance jilts me only days before the ceremony, I turn to my college friend, Oliver Parkerson, and convince him to marry me.

My family hasn’t met either man, so I’m confident we can pull this off.

But the feelings, our touches, the way my heart beats for him… none of it feels pretend. The way he holds me at night and carries me through loss tells me he’s not acting either.

I didn’t mean to fall for my fake husband, but real love was the one thing I couldn’t predict.

Except, nothing built on lies can last—I know that better than anyone. 

But the truth might tear us apart forever.

6. The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (The Devils #2) by Elizabeth O’Roark

You don’t really know a guy until you’ve vacationed with him…

When Drew Wilson’s ex-boyfriend Joel “Six” Bailey asks her to go on his family trip to Hawaii with him just as her life is falling apart, she decides it’s the perfect time to give him another chance. 

The hitch? The Bailey family includes Six’s rude older brother, Joshua—a hot-nerd doctor who has hated Drew since the moment they met and once suggested she’d steal the family silver.

Drew is determined to win the Baileys over and give this thing with Six a fair shot…but Joshua is making that difficult.

Not simply because he is in her way at every turn, but because—as one tropical adventure leads to the next—she’s beginning to wonder if obnoxious, odious Joshua might be the brother she actually belongs with.

7. Calmly, Carefully, Completely (The Reed Brothers #3) by Tammy Falkner

While I recommend all the books in this series (especially the first two); Calmly, Carefully, Completely is the one that happens during summer break. So it goes with the theme in this summer reading list.

But if you rather read The Reed Brothers series in order (even though you don’t have to since this one in particular can be read as a standalone), you will enjoy the series more if you start with Tall, Tatted and Tempting.

Calmly, Carefully, Completely (The Reed Brothers #3) by Tammy Falkner. 20 Romance Books To Enjoy During Your Summer Vacation. Beach Reads. Summer Reads. Summer Romance Books. Elephant on the Road

10. Bad Cruz by L.J. Shen

Bad Cruz by L.J. Shen. 20 Romance Books To Enjoy During Your Summer Vacation. Beach Reads. Summer Reads. Summer Romance Books. Elephant on the Road

I would say Dr. Cruz Costello is my archenemy.
But that would require acknowledging one another, which we haven’t done in over a decade.

He’s the town’s golden child. The beloved quarterback-turned-physician.
I’m the girl who got knocked up at sixteen and now works at a diner.

He is Fairhope royalty.
I get my monarch dose from tabloid gossip.

He’s well-off.
I’m…well, off.

When our siblings get engaged, Cruz’s parents invite both families to a pre-wedding cruise. Except Cruz and I find ourselves stuck on a different ship from everyone else.

Cue ten horrible, insufferable days at sea with a man I cannot stand (my fault, of course.)

12. Until June (Until Him/Her #3) by Aurora Rose Reynolds

The Until Him/Her is a spinoff series to the Until series. I have read both and I recommend them.

You can read the books as a standalone, but once you read more books in the series, you will start recognizing some of the characters.

While this book is not exactly about summer, the name of the main character is perfect for this list of summer romance books.

You can also read Until July, which is about her sister.

13. Enemies Abroad by R.S. Grey

If you are in the mood for a rom-com, then this is a book you will enjoy during the summer.

I have read a couple of R.S. Grey books, and they always make me laugh.

Enemies Abroad by R.S. Grey. 20 Romance Books To Enjoy During Your Summer Vacation. Beach Reads. Summer Reads. Summer Romance Books. Elephant on the Road

It’s simple: Noah Peterson and I are enemies. Our fellow teachers know it, our friends know it—even the Starbucks drive-through lady knows it since every Monday she scrawls the name A. Holefor me on Noah’s cappuccino when I pick up the weekly group order.

The shrill whine of the school bell announces the start of each day’s no-holds-barred grudge match.

Since neither of us is looking to get fired or thrown in prison, we war with our words and our wits.

We prefer banter that bites. All day, I’m on edge, looking around every corner, expecting him to do his worst.

Just when I think I can’t take the sight of his (regretfully) handsome face for one more minute, the school day is done. 

Summer usually offers the sweetest relief—a two-month Noah detox—but not this year.

“We need two volunteers to chaperone a group of eighth graders in Rome” becomes a game of chicken neither one of us is willing to lose. We both want that bonus check.

“Back out,” I tell him.
“Scared?” he taunts. 

No one thinks it’s a good idea for us to go to Rome together, least of all me. Taking this battle abroad will only lead to mayhem and misery.

DING. Ladies and gentlemen of flight UA447 with service to Rome, fasten your seatbelts.
We’re bound to have a bumpy ride.

The Summer Girl (Avalon Bay #3) by Elle Kennedy. 20 Romance Books To Enjoy During Your Summer Vacation. Beach Reads. Summer Reads. Summer Romance Books. Elephant on the Road

College student Cassie Soul hasn’t spent an entire summer in Avalon Bay in years, not since her parents divorced and her mother spitefully whisked her away to Boston.

Now that her grandmother is selling the boardwalk hotel that’s been in their family for five decades, Cassie returns to the quaint beach town to spend time with family, ring in her twenty-first birthday… and maybe find herself a summer fling.

On her first night in town, she finds the perfect candidate: Tate Bartlett, Avalon Bay’s fun-loving golden boy.

Tate, sailing instructor and lovable player, is no stranger to flings. In fact, he’s always down for a good time. But the moment he meets Cassie, he knows she’s not the girl you play games with.

Cassie is gorgeous, hilarious, and, frankly, the coolest person he’s ever met. The last thing he wants to do is risk breaking her heart, and so he reluctantly puts her in the friend-zone… only to realize he made a huge mistake.

Soon, his attraction to Cassie becomes impossible to ignore. He wants that fling now. Big-time.

And maybe even something more.

As Cassie and Tate walk the line between friends and lovers, they’re about to discover that their situation is the least complicated part of this equation.

Because Avalon Bay is full of secrets—and their relationship might not survive when those secrets come to light.

The ultimate summer nostalgia read, about an engaged woman who comes face to face with her first love who she hasn’t seen in fourteen years, but who she spent every summer with from age five to seventeen when he broke her heart, calling into question everything she thought she knew about their love story, and herself. 

Beach Rules: 
Do take long walks on the sand.
Do put an umbrella in every cocktail.
Do NOT run into your first love.

Sam’s life is on track. She has the perfect doctor fiancé, Jack (his strict routines are a good thing, really), a great job in Manhattan (unless they fire her), and is about to tour a wedding venue near her family’s Long Island beach house.

Everything should go to plan, yet the minute she arrives, Sam senses something is off. Wyatt is here. Her Wyatt. But there’s no reason for a thirty-year-old engaged woman to feel panicked around the guy who broke her heart when she was seventeen. Right?

Yet being back at this beach, hearing notes from Wyatt’s guitar float across the night air from next door as if no time has passed—Sam’s memories come flooding back: the feel of Wyatt’s skin on hers, their nights in the treehouse, and the truth behind their split.

Sam remembers who she used to be, and as Wyatt reenters her life their connection is as undeniable as it always was. She will have to make a choice.

Nico Navarro and I are friends. 

His signature grin and playfulness are charming, except when you’re on the receiving end of his self-absorbed personality. The worst part—he’s ridiculously gorgeous and he knows it.

For years, I’ve dealt with Nico’s incessant flirting by keeping my occasional fantasies about him strictly between me, my keyboard, and my vibrator. 

We’re both players and not interested in settling down. He’s never been in love, and I refuse to commit to someone again. Besides, Nico is my best friend’s brother-in-law, so he’s strictly off-limits.

Just. Friends. 

But when I suddenly lose my job, fail a class, and a man faints inside me—yes, inside me—all rationality falls by the wayside.

One out-of-character decision later, I find myself on an international adventure with the irresponsible playboy.

Our spontaneous vacation is filled with interrogations, a steamy arrangement, and the uncovering of my decade-long secret.

I’m quickly becoming Nico’s new obsession and the rules I’ve kept to protect my heart start to crumble with each new lavish travel destination we visit.

Can I let myself love again or will our summer fling end up in flames?

19. Six Summers to Fall by C.W. Farnsworth

If you love rom-con movies, then you will probably see the similarities between this book and The Wedding Date movie.

Rom-com from the early 2000s are simply the best.

Six Summers to Fall by C.W. Farnsworth. 20 Romance Books To Enjoy During Your Summer Vacation. Beach Reads. Summer Reads. Summer Romance Books. Elephant on the Road

Ever since her younger sister’s engagement was announced, Harper Williams has been dreading the wedding.

What should be a joyous, sun-drenched affair is sure to be filled with plenty of awkward moments, thanks to Harper’s strained relationship with her only sibling.

Awkwardness enhanced by the wedding’s location—a lake in Maine, swimming with painful memories of their late father.

Running into Drew Halifax—her childhood crush, who grew up to be the golden boy of hockey—is a surprise. Not nearly as shocking as his offer to be her plus-one is though.

She expects him to back out. He shows up. She’s looking for a distraction from the past. He’s killing time until his season starts and he can chase the championship. She’s guarded yet outgoing. He’s easygoing yet focused.

They hardly know each other. Until one week of sharing secrets, pretending to be in love, and sleeping in the same bed changes everything. Feelings that were supposed to be fake start to feel very real.

Problem is, neither of them is looking for a relationship. At most, they’re meant to be a summer fling. Definitely not a happily ever after.

But when it comes to falling? You have no control. Once you start, it’s impossible to stop. And sometimes…it takes six summers.

20. Long Summer Nights (Sultry Summer #1) by Laura John

Long Summer Nights (Sultry Summer #1) by Laura John. 20 Romance Books To Enjoy During Your Summer Vacation. Beach Reads. Summer Reads. Summer Romance Books. Elephant on the Road

When the sun goes down, it only gets hotter.

Tessa:

After my less than enjoyable childhood in Summersville, NC, I vowed I would never come back. But plans don’t always go accordingly. 

After being kicked out of my own home by a man I thought I loved, Mimi is there to welcome me with open arms.

Not only does she help pick me back up, but offering me a job at the bakery puts me in the direct path of him– Maddox. 

I swore I wouldn’t fall, but after one look at his mesmerizing dimples and the brush of his lips against mine, I knew I’d break my own promise. 

Only, as much as I want to let him in, how am I supposed to when I’ve been hurt so badly before? 

Maddox:
Moving to this small town was supposed to be a fresh start. A way to escape the expectations of my name, be completely anonymous, and build something for myself, but she wasn’t part of the plan. 

When Tessa moves in next door, she makes me want things I didn’t even know I craved. 

Suddenly, getting to know someone and forming a relationship doesn’t seem all that bad. Only, she has walls built around her heart even higher than mine. 

Can we let what we’re building blossom, or will our own defences keep us apart?

If you like small towns, strong and curvy heroines, and books with spice, then you are going to love Long Summer Nights!
