Here at UTC, we can be a little old skool. Most of our favourite authors have been around for years and no many new series make it into our auto-buy lists. So, we thought doing these posts would not only help us find new things, but also allow others to find older series that perhaps they haven’t encountered before but which we still hold dear to our heart.
If you love Jill Shallvis
…try out Bella Andre
I’ve been a fan of Jill Shalvis for quite some time. I’ve read all her books but series like the Lucky Harbor series really stand out for me. I’m such a sucker for small-town romances with quirky characters. It doesn’t hurt to have hot heroes as well. I feel like no matter which series you pick of Shalvis, you’ll always get that charming story that will no doubt make you smile.
But if you’re like me and have read all of Jill’s books and need something new to read, I highly recommend Bella Andre. Bella is more known for her Sullivans series which follows a series of highly successful siblings. She has written a spin-off series called the Seattle Sullivans and from there, she has another interconnected series called Summer Lake.
Both authors have a similar style. They don’t employ a lot of heavy conflict or emotions in their books and that’s always a nice thing when you’re looking for a good Contemporary. The focus is always on the Romance. Plus, both authors also always stress the importance of family and community in their books, which is great for long-running series. I’ve loved the majority of the couples in these books and I think if you already like one, you’ll probably enjoy the other author’s as well. Happy reading!

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
