Sistah Girls, authors are releasing books left and right, it can be hard to choose what makes your TBR (to be read) list and what stays on the shelf.
Well, never fear, we have you covered! If you’re looking for some Black romance to spice up your life then you have to add these authors listed below to your TBR list.
Khiaere and Phy: A Charleston Love Story by Mel Dau
Whether it’s learning about autism or shedding a positive light on HIV, reading one of Mel Dau’s books will provide entertainment as well as provide life lessons. I was hooked into her world when I first read Khiaere and Phy: A Charleston Love Story.
Sweet Lies Between Her Thighs by Ash Ley
If you’re into bittersweet romances, Ash Ley is the perfect author for that. She creates stories that change what a happily ever after looks like. Reading a story by Ash Ley gives you the courage and confidence to find happiness within yourself. The book that got me hooked on her was Sweet Lies Between Her Thighs.
Love’s Sweet Serenade by Kay Shanee
Kay Shanee showcases the beauty of Black love, and don’t get me started on the sex scenes. Warning, don’t read them in public–they are hot! Now, there may be some conflict between the couples but there is always a happy ending that gives you all the feels. Her standalone novels and series are all worth a read. A favorite and good place to start her catalog would be, Love’s Sweet Serenade.
I Should’ve Chosen You by Chelsea Marie
Chelsea Marie weaves a perfect amount of angst, love, and complexity with her characters. From standalone novels to series, Marie’s catalog will keep you entertained. To this day, Pacino Luciano is my favorite character by her. You can find him in I Should’ve Chosen You.
Guns and Love Series by Cherish Amore
Cherish Amore creates swoon-worthy men that know how to love on their women but will also shoot you for messing with them. Her characters are relatable because they experience some of the same things the average person goes through. If I had to choose a favorite by her it would be the Guns and Love series.
Crave by Shae Sanders
If you haven’t read a book by Shae Sanders by now, you are truly missing out. There’s a perfect balance of love and hot steamy sex. The Crave series is how I found her and I downloaded all of her books as soon as I was finished.
Shadows Fall Behind (BLM Book 1) by Tucora Monique
Tucora Monique creates characters that have unique names and most of the time not so typical jobs. For instance, she has women who are mechanics and one of them rides a motorcycle–how badass is that?
The black love of her books oozes off the page. I love every single book she’s written but one of my favorites is The BLM series– Shadows Fall Behind and Love Beyond our Shadows.
Enticed by his Charm by Monae Nicole
When reading a Monae Nicole book you are going to get hope of finding love even when you thought it wasn’t possible. Her female characters are relatable and you are bound to have something in common with at least one of them. Enticed by His Charm got me hooked on her work.
Valentine’s Kiss: A Kiss Family Novel by Kema B.
Kema B. delivers the perfect amount of love, reality, nastiness, and laughs to give a great reading experience. Her characters can be a little complex, especially the women; but Kema B. can make you like them even when you don’t want to.
It’s hard to pick a favorite so I say start with Valentine’s Kiss and work your way through.
Breathe Again by J. Chary
J. Chary writes real-life situations, she has relatable characters, and there is plenty of sex in her stories. A personal favorite is Breathe Again–when a man helps a woman to learn to love herself. Whew!
Sis, let me know if you have a series or standalone that I should add to my TBR list in the comments section.
