Okay, fellow moms and adult women…have you tried out any books in the genre of New Adult? You simply must try reading some New Adult (NA) romance books if you love reading about love because they are so fun to read, and you will get loads of swooning in. I promise. I’m an author of YA myself (YA means Young Adult, books with main characters who are teens… my debut novel Hungry Hearts comes out in 2020 with Swoon Romance) and I love to read YA novels, but if you are looking for a sexier story that goes a bit further, you’ve got to try out New Adult Romance books. These books I’m sharing with you are hot and sweet, lovely and full of passion. You will love how these novels are just swollen with gorgeous and luscious HEA…that’s happily ever after, which is just how I want my romance reads to end up. I’m in love with it!

These books are reasonably priced too which is totally awesome, especially the Kindle versions. I love using the Kindle version because I can keep buying and reading books without having to store them all somewhere. I mean, I do love to hold a book in my hot little hands, but with the volume of books I read, I wouldn’t want to store them all. If you haven’t tried reading on a Kindle or on your phone with the Kindle app, you should try it. I really love it. Plus, I always have a book with me because I can read it on my phone. Major bonus:)
My Rating and Steam Level, & SPOILER!
You might wonder why I gave all these books five stars…that’s because I only picked books that I loved for this post! My blog…so I get to pick. Oh, the sweet freedom! So, yeah, spoiler, I gave all five of these books five stars. Why? Because it’s my opinion and because I can! The steam level gives a hint of the saucy sexiness each of the books pleasures its reader with. Get ready to swoon, baby!
Five New Adult Romance Books to Read
In New Adult, the main characters are typically eighteen or older, or in their twenties, though there are exceptions to this rule.
Lead the Way by Brittany Carter
Whew! This was a sweet and yummy hot read! And that’s the absolute truth! This book will make your heart and gut flutter deliciously with the savory and steamy charms of southern love. It was super fun for me to read because I personally love the southern culture weaved throughout the story, being a northerner myself. This book will make you feel good, which to me is the major goal of reading. I want to be entertained and this book delivered;)
Thane is such a sexy character full of brooding and hidden sexy sweetness which makes the story fully satisfying when he finally reveals his full gorgeous heart to Melody. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the evolution of their intense love. Their devotion to one another was both endearing and savory as it unfolded. It’s a sweet story of young adult love that will launch you into the joy of a summer fling that goes the distance, and then some. Hold onto your bed pillows and get ready for a fun ride!
I loved the suspense interweaved into the storyline also which ran alongside the budding romance. The sex scenes are hot and full of flaming zest…get ready to swoon! A great read for by the pool, by the beach, or on your patio with a lovely chilled beverage. Cheers!
Rating: 5 Stars!
Steam level: sex scenes and hot kissing scenes and fun flirty window scenes…read it to find out what I mean;)
Once Upon a Player by Christina Phillips
I adored this book! It was a fun and delicious read. The story was both sweet and sexy. The opening chapter had me laughing so hard because the scene was such a lovely awkward riot!
I enjoyed the main female character Violet and her inner thoughts rang true to me. I absolutely fell in love with the main male character Lucas. He was genuine, sweet, and oh soooo very hot! I loved reading his thoughts, Christina Phillips did a good job portraying to readers what I would imagine a man would think as he is falling in love, and many of his thoughts made me smile and laugh. There is one intimate scene, in particular, which gripped me in the gut and left me with a giant wow, I mean holy wow, swoony feeling. Read it and see for yourself;) I’m still thinking about that encounter! Can I say yum-me!
This is a great book fellow mamas and women…check it out and you will be falling in love with Violet and Lucas as they fall in love with each other. A great read for at the beach or by the pool this summer or to warm you up with a grin any time of year.
Rating: 5 stars!
Steam level: sex scenes and kissing, hello! and just look at that cover…I mean wow!
These next three books are in a series called Scandalous Boys.
Bryce by Natalie Decker
This book was really fun to read as well. I enjoyed Bryce as a character a whole heckuva lot! He’s misunderstood as a bad boy, but he has a heart of gold. That’s a winning combination in my book, and in my heart! He’s stubborn but strongly devoted to his love and that’s a winning quality in a book boyfriend (and reality too). Maddy…well sometimes I wanted to shake her when she resisted her heart’s desire, but it’s her first foray into love, which was sweet to read.
The storyline delivered thrills and heartbreaks, angsty frustrations and joys. It’s yummy! You should read it:) The romance in the book was sexy and frustrating, yet, filled with sweet devotion. The romance is satisfying, enjoyable, and endearing. Bring on the HEA!
Being that this is the first in a series of three, we get to follow along with the characters for a while and that’s always a fun experience.
I have to say this book was my favorite in the series. There’s just something about Bryce that both grips me and tickles me. Grab your copy and swoon by the pool! Enjoy!
After you read this series, stop back and tell me your favorite, and why! I’d love to know;)
Rating: 5 stars!
Steam Level: hot sex scenes, like smoking hot! I love the whole treehouse thing!
Graham by Natalie Decker
We met both Graham and Sarah in the first book BRYCE, and their journey continues in this book.
This second book in the series was a great read. There are struggles and sweet moments along the way in their romance. I enjoyed the give and take of the relationship, the push and pull of the love between Graham and Sarah egged me on to want to read more and find out where they would go. The hot sexy tale is filled with moments of frustrating and delicious angst, admitting one’s feelings, and, yeah, growing up. They both go through some denial about their true feelings and must sort them out. I enjoyed Sarah’s transformation especially. Graham holds true to the bad boy image of this series and it makes for a truly fun read.
I read this book on the beach in Florida this spring, and it was a fantastic beach read! My son made me a lovely sand chair to sit in and I read oceanside. It was a slice of heaven!
Rating: You know it, baby! 5 stars!
Steam level: sex scenes…yep but not explicit language but very hot!
Kyle by Natalie Decker
Okay, this is the third book in this New Adult series and it delivers sexiness, angst, love, the trials/tribulations of friendship, and it’s also a thriller. Kyle definitely fits the bad boy image, but his love for Emily is fierce and complete, so that’s yummy. Some of his lines to her are killer hot! There are a few difficult topics in this book revolving around abuse and where that leads the reader dives into the thriller aspects of this great read.
The banter and sexual tension between Em and Kyle made this a fun entertaining read. I loved their history and how their relationship evolved was delicious. I was just craving, longing, for them to crash into each other…it’s a satisfying HEA.
It was also fun to still be following along with Bryce and Maddy, as well as Graham and Sarah in this book. This is a great series of bad boys, love, life, and sexiness. A fervently hot set of books!
Rating: Yes ma’am! 5 stars!
Steam level: sex scenes…and some humor with Em’s toy! Read it to find out;)
