Romance 101: New Adult Romance + Giveaway

Posted February 17, 2019 by Francesca in Front Page, Random Thoughts, Under the Covers / 27 Comments

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!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

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.

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.

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.

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 🙂
