Summer Reading Time: 21 of the Best Beach Romance Books

Summer Reading Time: Best Beach Romance Books

I am OBSESSED with romance novels.


I always have been and I always will be. When I was in high school, I actually would trade romance books with my Nana and Grandma! LOL… it was a special bond we all had and I loved every single second of it!

I don’t get a chance to read throughout the “regular” year. Life is so busy with work and when it’s cold outside, I’m usually inside curled up with my sons and watching a movie. But… when it’s the summer, and it’s hot and warm outside – you’ll NEVER catch me inside! When I have the time to do this… you’ll see me reading!

If you’re a Romance Book lover like me, you’ll want to know the best summer reads for 2013!!

    Oh, my little Romance Queen! You’ll have to pass along all of these to Grandma, too… and I know Nana is reading them in Heaven! SO. “Big Girl Panties” is an intriguing title. Or maybe “First Sight”. Actually, that’s how I fell in love with your Dad! Great share, Honey. But you DO know that I’ll be reading poetry on our back patio! xoxox!
