Genre Freebie

I was having a hard time coming up with anything fun and catchy, so you’re getting:

Twenty Romance Series to Binge On

I might have gone over ten… I couldn’t help myself. I’m going to link the first book in each series’ title to Goodreads so you can check them out if you’re interested.

NOTE: I wrote this post prior to everything exploding the way it has. I went back and tried to note if a book was FREE right now to help out.

1. Addicted / Calloway Sisters
Authors: Krista & Becca Ritchie

Starting with Addicted to You, this book follows the Calloway sisters Lily, Rose, and Daisy as they fall in love. It touches on family relationships, addictions, etc. It’s continuous story that continues through the eyes of the different sisters.

Addicted for Now
Kiss the Sky
Hothouse Flower
Addicted After All
Fuel the Fire
Long Way Down
Some Kind of Perfect

2. Billionaire Bad Boys

Tapping Her
Banking the Billionaire
Banking Her
Scoring the Billionaire
Scoring Her
Sleighed It

3. King
Author: T.M. Frazier

I’m including this series for those of you who enjoy a DARK romance. Lots of trigger warnings to go along with this series. It’s addictive, but not for the faint of heart. It’s another one that you have to read in order to avoid spoilers.

All the Rage
Preppy: The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part 1
Preppy: The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part 2
Preppy: The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part 3

4. Blue Heron
Author: Kristan Higgins

This recommendation is for a more traditional contemporary romance reader. You can’t go wrong with this series. It’s Kristan Higgins at her best.
Reading order:
The Best Man
The Perfect Match
Waiting on You
In Your Dreams
Anything for You

5. Fallen Crest High
Author: Tijan

This is a very mature YA – pretty much NA series that is full of over the top drama. This is one that you have to read in order.
Reading order:
Fallen Crest High
Fallen Crest Family
Fallen Crest Public
Fallen Fourth Down
Fallen Crest University
Fallen Crest Christmas
Logan Kade
Fallen Crest Home
Fallen Crest Forever

6. Beneath
Author: Meghan March

If you like romance with a tad bit of suspense, the Beneath series is for you. It’s set in colorful New Orleans with a cool cast of characters. Meghan March actually has a preferred reading order list of how all her series mesh together, but I’m just giving you this series alone. Once you get into her duets, she has some amazing cliffhangers.
Reading order:
Beneath This Mask (FREE)
Beneath This Ink
Beneath These Chains
Beneath These Scars
Beneath These Lies
Beneath These Shadows
Beneath the Truth

7. True North
Author: Sarina Bowen

Don’t let the shirtless dude put you off. If you like contemporary romances with sweet stories and amazing characters, this series is for you. (I actually would recommend all of her books/series. I would have listed them all if I didn’t have to stick to 10.)
Reading order:

8. Grip
Author: Kennedy Ryan

People have been paying attention to Kennedy Ryan since Long Shot won a major award, but I would still argue her best work is the Grip series.
Reading order:

9. Maysen Jar
Author: Devney Perry

Devney Perry has a few really great series, but my favorite is the Maysen Jar. If you like romances that hit you right in the heart, check out this two book series.
Reading order:
The Birthday List (FREE)
Letters to Molly

10. Winston Brothers
Author: Penny Reid

Smart, funny, and filled with a lovable family, you can’t go wrong with the Winston Brothers.
Reading order:
Beauty and the Mustache
Truth or Beard
Grin and Beard It
Beard Science
Beard in Waiting
Beard in Mind
Dr. Strange Beard
Beard with Me
Beard Necessities

11. Off Campus
Author: Elle Kennedy

This is one of the best college sports romance series ever, in my opinion. It also has a great spin-off series, if you love it so much you want more.
Reading order:
The Deal (FREE)
The Mistake
The Score
The Goal

12. Smart Jocks
Author: Rebecca Jenshak

Here’s another great NA college romance series that I just found and binged myself.
Reading order:
The Assist
The Fadeaway
The Tip-Off
The Fake

13. Full Tilt
Author: Emma Scott

Here’s a romance series for readers who don’t mind crying a bit while falling in love.
Reading order:
Full Tilt
All In

14. Elements
Author: Brittainy C. Cherry

The Elements series is a series for those who want a series of standalone romances.
Reading order:
The Air He Breathes
The Fire Between High & Lo
The Silent Waters
The Gravity Between Us

15. Texting
Author: Teagan Hunter

If you like books with texting involved, you will love this series. It’s fun and fresh. Plus, the titles are so cool!
Reading order:
Let’s Get Textual
I Wanna Text You Up
Can’t Text This
Text Me Baby One More Time

16. Sex, Love & Stiletto
Author: Lauren Layne

Lauren Layne is one of my go-to authors for contemporary romances. They’re office romances. This is one of my favorite series by her.
Reading order:
After the Kiss
Love the One You’re With
Just One Night
The Trouble with Love

17. Binghampton
Author: Meghan Quinn

Meghan Quinn’s books are romantic comedy gold. She always makes me laugh. This is one of my favorite series of hers.
Reading order:
My Best Friend’s Ex
Twisted Two-Some
The Other Brother

18. Flight & Glory
Author: Rebecca Yarros

Flight & Glory is one of my favorite military romance series. I think it helps that it was written by a military wife.
Reading order:
Full Measures
Eyes Turned Skyward
Beyond What is Given
Hallowed Ground
The Reality of Everything (TBR)

19. Him / WAGS
Authors: Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy

Him is a M/M hockey romance. It’s utterly addictive and Kennedy & Bowen do some of their best writing together. I am including the spin-off series in the reading order because you won’t be able to stop after these two books. You will need more.
Reading order:
Good Boy

20. The Kiss Quotient
Author: Helen Hoang

The Kiss Quotient was one of my favorite books of 2018. It features an autistic woman and a male escort. It’s a truly heartwarming romance.
Reading order:
The Kiss Quotient
The Bride Test
The Heart Principle (TBR)

21. The Legal Briefs
Author: Emma Chase

I loved this series about a group of lawyers who fall in love. It’s so cute and funny.
Reading order:

Honestly, I could go on and on. Obviously. LOL. I hope you found some new series to give a try!

  1. Ooh, I have read and loved so many of these! The Love & Stiletto series is a fave (as is the Oxford series). I friendship between the women and eventually, everyone was envious. I have only read two of the Legal Briefs books, but I enjoyed them both. Jake and the kids owned me. Helen Hoang is a gift to contemporary romance, as is Penny Reid. I recently finished the Winston Brothers books, and it was bittersweet. Speaking of Bittersweet, I cannot get enough of the Shipleys. They the best. And those On Campus boys were a delight.

  2. So many good ones, Deanna! I have some of this series on my TBR, but there are a few that weren’t on my radar and sound interesting like The Legal Briefs, Flight & Glory, Smart Jocks, etc. I’m ashamed to say I have the Beneath series to read on my Kindle since forever but I keep forgetting about it! πŸ™
    I’ve just finished the Texting series and I had a lot of fun reading it. I’m going through a weird phase when I mostly want to read penpals romances or texting/online romances. I blame Dear Aaron. πŸ˜‰

  3. I haven’t read much romance but the Krista and Becca Ritchie writing team jumps out at me- i know I’ve seen those names around quite a bit!

    Happy reading!! πŸ™‚

    1. Hm…I wonder if that’s because they wrote a YA sci-fi duet? That one was good, but their romances are better. Their characters really come alive.
      Happy reading!

  4. AH what a list! Thank you so much for all of these recommendations πŸ™‚ I have The Kiss Quotient on my TBR and can’t wait to get to it πŸ™‚

  5. So many books to choose from! I can use a little escape from reality at the moment and I think that Winston Brothers sounds like a perfect series for me. πŸ˜‰

  6. Totally agree with the Addicted/Calloway series. It’s my all-time favorite contemporary series. I just read my first by T.M. Frazier last month and loved it. The Dark Light of Day. GoodReads lists it as King #0 but since I haven’t continued the series yet I don’t know what the connection is. The True North series is one of my faves. Sarina Bowen never disappoints. Kennedy Ryan – I adore everything she writes. The Hoops series, the Grip series… so excellent. I really need to get back into the Off Campus series. Him and WAGs… total faves (again with Sarina Bowen never disappointing me). Great list, Deanna! πŸ™‚

    1. I haven’t read Dark Light of Day, but I have seen the characters. It’s a book I think I have but need to get to.
      Thank you!

  7. I love the Blue Heron series! I really miss Kristan Higgins romance books. I also love that Texting series so much! (well, I loved the first book and the rest were not as great, but still enjoyable). I downloaded the first book in the Smart Jocks series on KU and will hopefully be starting it soon. Great list!

    1. I do, too. I wish she would go back to romance…
      I can’t wait to hear about Smart Jocks. The series gets better as it goes along.

  8. It’s the perfect time to binge read. I’ve been binge watching shows as of late, but should really use the extra time reading. Thanks for the recs!

  9. LOVE this post! I need to remember that you did it once I finally catch up on all the series on this list that I’ve already started. The only two I’ve finished so far are Full Tilt and Maysen Jar.
