Top 10 Tuesday (5)

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

Top 10 Favorite Romances:

I loved Bridget.  She was a strong, and snarky leading lady who brought Chad down to his knees! 

Carina and Max were an adorable couple!  I loved watching Carina grow as a character.  She transformed herself into a strong, confident, independent and assertive lady, and she made Max take notice. 

This story had a lot of angst, sexual tension, and hot and steamy make-out/sex scenes!  Also, the men were swoon worthy! 

Marcus was my favorite character in the Sea Breeze Series.  He was loyal, caring, compassionate, loved with all his heart, and would do anything for his friends, family, and the woman he loved.  "Low" was his soulmate, and I loved seeing two such genuine characters get their happily ever after. 

6.)  Charade by Nyrae Dawn 

Charade broke my heart, and put it back together again.  I loved how Colt and Chey fell  in love and supported one another through difficult and sad times in their lives.  Colt tried to portray a tough exterior, but deep down he was a man who loved with all of his heart, and just didn't want to get hurt.  Chey tried to be perfect but inside she was falling apart.  These two brought out the best in each other,  and could finally be "real" with one another and themselves. 

5.)  Easy by Tammara Webber 
Lucas is amazing.  He is gorgeous, intelligent, artistic, a hard worker, and a modern day night and shining armor.  He saves the leading lady, and they fall madly in love.  He sweeps her off of her feet, and the chemistry between these two characters is electrifying.  If you haven't read this story, I encourage you to do so now.  You will fall in love with Lucas, and wish that he was a real person. 

4.)  The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden by Jessica Sorenson 

 Callie and Kayden are two very broken characters.  You will hurt for them, and you will cry for them.  They fall into a very deep, and passionate love.  I only hope their love will save them from themselves... 

3.)  Fate by Elizabeth Reyes 
Vincent and Rose fall in love as teenagers.  Vincent is a "Bad " boy, and Rose is the "good" girl that's always trying to make him grow up and be accountable for his actions.  They have a very heated and passionate on again/off again relationship.  They have something special, and you will be rooting for them to make it! 

Sky is haunted by her past, and so is Holder.  Together, they solve certain mysteries.  Along the way, they break down, and pick each other back up again.  They become each other's best friends, and have a selfless, genuine, and unconditional love.  This book will make you cry.  Have a box of tissues. 


1.)  The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay

A beautiful and poignant story about two people who are broken, and live with loss, and pain every day.  They fall in love and save each other without even realizing what is happening.  Their love transforms them, and it is the ultimate and most unconditional love that anyone could ever experience.  Nastya and Josh's story will transform you, and leave you hopeful...
