Are you looking for a standalone romance that makes you swoon and laugh? Roomies by Christina Lauren delivers a romance with the arrangement trope that had me laughing and swooning in the Big Apple. Filled with passion, awkward moments, and rich characters Roomies gave me all the feels.
Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop
If you have been following Caffeinated then you know I am a huge fan of the Others series by Anne Bishop. I own the series in all formats available (expect paperback) and must first listen to the narration performed by Alexandra Harris before rereading the hardcover edition. Obsessed? Maybe, but I love the world and characters Bishop has created. ETCHED IN BONE, the fifth novel and the last novel featuring the characters from Lakeside takes us back to the Courtyard as humans, and the others live side by side.
