Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Intense Romance Reads

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Bookish Wishes. That’s a harder topic for me than it seems. The only wish I could think of would be for Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen to write more books together. Crossing my fingers they surprise me someday soon. Instead my topic today is:

Ten Intense Romance Reads

A while ago my blogger friend Nick did a post with some friends on Angst in Romance. I thought it was a fun post and felt inspired, so I thought I would share some intense romances that brought the angst for me.

  1. I do love me some angsty reads (though in small doses haha 🙂 ) And I do hear you on your wish for Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen to write more books together!

  2. Gah! So many great picks here – and some that I’ve really loved. The Addicted series is one of my favorite contemporary series ever. I felt like those characters were so real to me. Long Shot was so intense. Killed me. Ten Tiny Breaths was the first I read by Tucker and is still a favorite. It was angst overload in The Girl in the Love Song. So much so that I have yet to continue the series.

    1. Thanks! Yes! And same for The Girl in the Love Song. I can’t do that again. I’m also reading an ARC for Ginger Scott’s upcoming Fuel series and the angst is killing me!

  3. I read half of these, and they were definitely intense. That is pretty much McLean’s brand. Ryan can go either way, but I found the first Hoops book really emotional. It gutted me. Same for Left Drowning. I definitely cried puddles when I read that. And the hero in The Air He Breathes just shredded my heart.

    1. It’s a good combo, but I need light angst. Too much can be, well, too much for me!

  4. I don’t read many romantic novels. Maybe I should try one from your list one day. Which one would you recommend?

    Thanks for visiting my TTT earlier.

    1. Hm… From this list The Air He Breathes by Brittainy C. Cherry would probably the one I would have you start with.
