Yep… cheating/infidelity/affair books. Heroes & Heroines alike… Whatever you call this genre, it’s time to list ’em. I haven’t made a “What to Read After… ” list in awhile ’cause I reserve those for books that drove us crazy, and that we can’t stop talking about, months and maybe even years after we first read ’em. Since Arsen is still affecting readers, and books “like it” are always being compared to it (and everyone is on a quest for more like it)… well. It’s time. Even… ever since Thoughtless. Kellan wasn’t the only awesome part of that book. It was the indecision, the gaul, the hurt, and the angst that also had us hooked.
The Life You Stole (The Life Series Book 2) <— If you haven’t read book #1 yet, skip this review altogether and go to my first review here so my (and our) emotions below don’t spoil stuff for ya!!! Good news? The duet is complete so if this sounds up your alley, you can devour it all in one shot, cliffhanger and all! 😀
<— You guys. This one did a number on me. It was dark and emotional and depressing and hardcore, and yet despite that… “ethereal” quality about it, it felt real. Which is probably why I needed a billion breaks from it while I was reading it. HOLY. MOLY.
Miyah needs our book help and guess what?? I THINK I KNOW IT!! We went crazy for this forbiddeny one, so *fingers crossed* I’m right. 😉
Hi uhm…well I came across this forum and I wanted to ask a reader question…
I’ve been looking for a book about a girl and her boyfriend…the girl actually meets the boyfriends father randomly at a movie theatre not knowing who he was and they talk and what not….later on the girl and her boyfriend actually end up move in with her boyfriends dad who happens to be the man that she met at the movies and they start liking each other.
Alex is looking for this one! Oooooooh slightly scandalous and totally titillating!!! What an arrangement. 😉 Okay so…
I was hoping you could help me identify a book that I read a few years ago. It ended on a cliffhanger and I’d love to be able to remember the title and author so I could at last read what happens next.
The opening scene is of a woman walking in on her male best friend (who is also her “boyfriend/fiance/or husband” – can’t remember) in an intimate act with another man. They have a pact to have an open relationship/marriage since he’s gay and she’s straight.
These stories run the gamut of all sorts of romance drama (from unrequited love, to more common marital strife issues, growing apart due to resentments, secrets, and life stresses… to some with PTSD, all the way to infidelity issues), and this list promises to tear our hearts out… and despite all odds, possibly mend ’em, too (hence, the “second chance romance” part). 😉 Sometimes love really IS enough.
OH WOW!! 🤩 This one stole my heart. Yep! Still has that signature Colleen Hoover storytelling by way of her beautiful words and introspection and her relatable characters with real life issues. It’s why we love her so.
Kim: Regretting You, it was very relatable which I think is one of Coho’s great talents. She is always a sure thing for me.
But also signature Colleen ’cause it had quite the twist that, yet again – I didn’t see coming until it slapped me right on the face! And it does so early on, too, so you get to live it as they do.
