Romance 101: New Adult Romance + Giveaway

Valentine’s Day is almost here and we thought, what better way to celebrate than to talk about Romance!  We are starting a new series where we will be covering all topics related to the romance genre.  Kicking things off this week we will talk about subgenres, tropes and character types and give you some recommendations along the way.  This will be perfect for the newbie romance reader feeling a bit overwhelmed about where to start.  But maybe it may have some information that you may not have been clear on if you’re a seasoned romance reader.  After this week, this will become a monthly feature so please be sure to let us know what other topics you’d like us to cover!

Misty S.

I’ve read a few Colleen Hoover books but I don’t think any of the ones I’ve read are classified as new adult.


Colleen Hoover.

Francesca Bertucci

Thanks this helps what’s is new adult is in books.


I don’t read too much new adult so I don’t have a favorite author

Sue G.

Christina Lauren are probably my favorite!


I read a lot more YA, really, but Jeff Adams and Sarina Bowen have written several NA favorites.


Elle Kennedy is one of my faves

Sophia Rose

Yeah, like you, New Adult is not my favorite romance genre. Love triangles, jerks made out to be the hot and popular guys and girls, unnecessary drama, and what I call the fixation crush with little reason. That said, I enjoyed a fair few over the years including several you mentioned like Kristen Callihan’s The Hook Up, KA Tucker,’s Ten Tiny Breath series and Burying Water series, Christina Lee’s Between Breaths series, Anne Tenino’s Theta Alpha Gamma series, Tillie Cole’s Sweet Home series, Beau North’s Modern Love, Sarina Bowen’s Him duo, Meghan Erickson’s Trust the Focus, Christmas Kitsch by Amy… Read more »

I may had read some NA books, but I can’t recall. I do know that I have some NA books in my TBR list/pile. So if I have to give name(s), then Christina Lauren and Penny Reid.


Jamie McGuire and Abbi Glines


I love Colleen Hoover, Elle Kennedy, and Kristen Callihan.

Kat Valentine

Awesome book recommendations annie!! I’ve read a few of the m/m and have liked them. Shared on all my socials!??

Kim Perry

Abbi Glines, Cora Cormack, and Krista & Becca Ritchie are some of my favorites in this genre.

Laura Lovejoy- Brunk

Him and Us by Sarina and Elle Kennedy are on of my favorite M/M series ever ! And i am a long time fan of Rachel Vincent many series. I like Young Adult even though some are a bit childish for me.

New subjects: You touched briefly on Urban Fantasy series, that could be expanded. Dark romance and Young Adult could be future subjects too.

Kristiana S

Elle Kennedy, Jay Crownover, Katy Evans are just a few of my favorite new adult authors 🙂

Darynda Jones

New Adult has become my favorite genre to read over the last couple of years. My favorite authors are Jennifer L. Armentrout, Emma Chase, Colleen Hoover, and Elle Kennedy 🙂

Maria Theresa Santos

Beautiful disaster by Jamie mcguire

Amy R

Colleen Hoover, Jen Fredrick, Cambria Hebert, Elyssa Patrick, Kristen Callihan and Penny Reid all have NA books I’ve enjoyed. I know there are more I’m missing.

Nina T

I don’t know which authors belong to this genre…but seeing that I’ve read Elle Kennedy, Penny Reid and Christina Lauren which are mentioned in the comments as NA authors, I guess I’ll say them 🙂


I don’t have a favorite author
