even when I was forced to say goodbye.

We were never meant to let go,
but it happened anyway.
Too bad I didn’t know someone was waiting to take my place, or I would’ve held on a lot tighter.

Two years later, we were exactly where we’d always planned to be.
I’d kept my promise.
He’d forgotten all about his.
Not only had he moved on, but the person he’d moved on with was my best friend, leaving me to begin college with a broken heart.

I guess this is the part where I’m supposed to tell you some other guy stepped in, repaired my shattered pieces, and made me smile again.

This isn’t that kind of story.

My heart might have been broken,
but it refused to fall out of love.

Warning: this book contains cheating.

Each book in the Gray Springs world can be read as a standalone.

I mentioned on Instagram last month how much I loved this series. I couldn’t stop reading and it made me feel so many things. I cried too, and when that happens it means it touched my heart in a good way. In my opinion, the second book is the best one.

The three books are full of angst, so if you aren’t into that, then they might not be for you.

One I didn’t factor into my college plans.

I wasn’t looking for love.
I wasn’t not looking for it either.
And in that state of in-between, he found me.

Unaware of the battle he fought everyday, I fell fast.
By the time I found out, it was too late.
Because I wanted everything.
Every broken, lost part of him.

I knew I couldn’t fix him.
I could only love him.
But I should’ve known better than to think that was enough.

New Adult Romance Books. Elephant on the RoadCallum Welsh perfected the art of hating me when we were two kids who believed we’d be forced into marriage.
He thought I wanted it, but my only wish had been for him to leave me alone.
Then one afternoon, he stole my first kiss.
Despite all he’d done, everything changed after that.

As the years passed, our hearts thawed, and he no longer hated me.
In fact, he loved me enough to make me his wife.
Until I ruined everything with one stupid mistake.

That hatred returned in the form of cruel words and even crueler deeds.
But we weren’t kids anymore.
I could handle his brand of venom.
He would be mine again, even if it cost me the remains of my heart.

Warning: contains cheating and an anti-hero who might make you throw your kindle.

4. From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata

From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata. Winter Reading List For The Romantic Soul. Book Recommendation. Romance Books. Love Stories. New Adult Fiction. Romance Novels. New Adult Romance Books. Elephant on the RoadIf someone were to ask Jasmine Santos to describe the last few years of her life with a single word, it would definitely be a four-letter one.

After seventeen years—and countless broken bones and broken promises—she knows her window to compete in figure skating is coming to a close.

But when the offer of a lifetime comes in from an arrogant idiot she’s spent the last decade dreaming about pushing in the way of a moving bus, Jasmine might have to reconsider everything.

Including Ivan Lukov.

I started the book thinking I wasn’t going to like it. I didn’t like it at the beginning. I just didn’t connect with it, but I still kept reading because of the ratings! I’m happy I decided not to stop.

So yeah, it can be a little slow at first, but it’s totally worth. The chemistry between Jasmine and Ivan is amazing and you will fall in love with their love story.

5. Radiance (Wraith Kings #1) by Grace Draven

From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata. Winter Reading List For The Romantic Soul. Book Recommendation. Romance Books. Love Stories. New Adult Fiction. Romance Novels. New Adult Romance Books. Elephant on the RoadTHE PRINCE OF NO VALUE

Brishen Khaskem, prince of the Kai, has lived content as the nonessential spare heir to a throne secured many times over. A trade and political alliance between the human kingdom of Gaur and the Kai kingdom of Bast-Haradis requires that he marry a Gauri woman to seal the treaty. Always a dutiful son, Brishen agrees to the marriage and discovers his bride is as ugly as he expected and more beautiful than he could have imagined.

THE NOBLEWOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE

Ildiko, niece of the Gauri king, has always known her only worth to the royal family lay in a strategic marriage. Resigned to her fate, she is horrified to learn that her intended groom isn’t just a foreign aristocrat but the younger prince of a people neither familiar nor human. Bound to her new husband, Ildiko will leave behind all she’s known to embrace a man shrouded in darkness but with a soul forged by light.

Two people brought together by the trappings of duty and politics will discover they are destined for each other, even as the powers of a hostile kingdom scheme to tear them apart.

I discovered this book thanks to a drawing I saw on Twitter. Many other girls were saying it was so good and it was one of their favorite series. So curious me, had to see how good it was. It did not disappoint. If you like paranormal romance, you will love this book!

I just loved how the relationship between Ildiko and Brishen developed. It was so sweet!

6. Block Shot (Hoops #2) by Kennedy Ryan

Block Shot Hoops 2 by Kennedy Ryan. Winter Reading List For The Romantic Soul. Book Recommendation. Romance Books. Love Stories. New Adult Fiction. Romance Novels. New Adult Romance Books. Elephant on the RoadA STANDALONE second chance, enemies-to-lovers romance set in the cutthroat world of sports management.

They’re two sharks in a fish tank…

JARED

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat…
The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.
Her anger is… arousing.
Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth, gets me… well, you know.
If I had a dollar for every time she’s put me in my place, I’d be an even richer man.
I’m a successful sports agent because I assume “no” means you’ll think about it.
I’m sure what you meant to say is “Coming right up.”
They say even rich men don’t always get what they want, but those men don’t know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.
Take Banner. She assumes she’s winning, but this game?
She doesn’t even know how to play.

BANNER

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.
One night. One epic fail. One dollar… and I’m out.
I’ve moved on.
I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.
Anything they can do, I have done better.
They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.
And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?
Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.
I’ll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.
Oh, I didn’t say the struggle wasn’t real.
But I’ve got that one dollar, and Jared won’t have me.

7.  Cross Breed (Breeds #23) by Lora Leigh

Cross Breed Breeds 23 by Lora Leigh. Winter Reading List For The Romantic Soul. Book Recommendation. Romance Books. Love Stories. New Adult Fiction. Romance Novels. New Adult Romance Books. Elephant on the RoadThe Breeds are humans altered before conception with the DNA of the predators of Earth. But although they all carry the genetic material of beasts within them, Cassandra Sinclair stands apart. A unique mix of wolf, coyote and human, she is revered by many—but preyed upon by others. She is fiercely protected by her community…but no one manages to stop her when she slips away one day to offer her body in exchange for her sister’s safety.

The man she succumbs to surprises her by unleashing her inner animal in ways she never dreamed possible—and provokes her deep, furious rage. To Cassie’s shock, he is the mate she has long awaited. She may never be able to forgive his deception. Still, as dangerous enemies track her, and as the threat of all-out war between Breeds and the humans who despise them hovers in the air, they must join forces and hold fast to each other.

But the passionate union between them holds a potential that could change the world—and some will do anything to stop it…

If you are a lover of romance books, then you know who Lora Leigh is. I still remember when I started the “Breeds” series many years ago. One of my favorite books ever is part of this series as well (Coyote’s Mate). So, if paranormal romance is your thing. Go ahead and read this book! or the whole series for that matter.
