I am here today with my third Romanceopoly TBR and I am so excited!
Like the name suggests, it’s romanced themed Monopoly game which is designed to get you to explore a range of different sub genres. Each neighbourhood has been replaced by a genre and each street has a unique challenge within that genre. Although, some neighbourhoods are a little more diverse and offer a melting pot of different genres to delve into.
The challenge is hosted by the ladies over at PeaceLoveBooksxo and Under the Covers Book Blog. For all the information about the challenge and reccomenedations can be found at the Romanceopoly website.
I’ve decided that I’m going to make my way around the board using the scenic route option to move around this board. For this route I’ll start at the “Go” square, roll the dice and move forward the number of squares I’ve rolled.
There are 39 streets and amenities all with their own unique prompt to complete. I’ve decided to keep my rolls for March at 5.
On to the books and prompts!
Read a friends to lovers new adult romance
I have loved new adult sport romances from both Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy. While I did read Good Boy by the pair year I wasn’t the biggest fan of the couple’s relationship. The only part I was a fan of was Jamie and Wes’ relationship. So I thought why not pick up the first book in their duology.
I don’t know too much about this book apart from that it follows estrange childhood friends, Jamie Canning and Ryan ‘Wes’ Wesley when they go back to hockey game where they first met but this time as coaches. From what I can tell Wes is openly gay and they stop talking after a bet pushes the boundaries of their friendship.
Thank the gods that I landed on a library piece because honestly I was going to read this book the moment it came out anyway. This way it also counts towards my Romanceopoly challenge which is a win in my book!
Kylie Scott is one of my favourite romance writers and Lick was the first quote on quote romance novel I read. I adore her writing. She always makes me laugh.
All I know is that this is a kind of Cinderella retelling where we have a plus size heroine and the prince charming is a billionaire play boy who’s hiding in a dive bar as bus boy and he can quote Austen. Honestly I just need this book in my life.
Read an epistolary romance
I picked this one from the recommendation on the Romanceopoly website because I have no idea what what I was going to chose for this prompt. And out of all the books listed for this prompt I had luckily already had this one on my TBR.
Abigail Trent agreed to write a letter to a soldier deployed overseas, she expected it to be a fleeting exchange. A friendly back-and-forth that ended barely after it began. She didn’t expect Theodore LaRoux.
We have another plus size heroine which I adore. I’m interest to see how letters are interwoven into the narrative.
Read a fated mates paranormal romance
I adore Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series. Its funny when I first brought the first two books of both the Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series I thought I would dive into Cry Wolf because it has my favourite trop, fated mates. But I guess now is a good time to star this series.
We follow Anna who never knew about werewolves until she was violently attack and turned into one. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer—and son—of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life claiming that she’s not only a rare and valued Omega wolf but she is also his mate.
I’m excited to see more of Briggs’ world and hopefully we get to learn more about the mythology of her werewolves since there is a lot of supernatural elements happening in Mercy Thompson.
Read a LGBT romance which isn’t a contemporary
I read Wolfsong last year and was complete enchanted by the world Green Creek and TJ Klune’s writing style. It’s one of my favourite werewolf stories.
Ravensong follows the story of witch, Gordo Livingstone and wolf, Mark Bennett. The history and past relationship of these character was hinted at in the fist book. There is a lot fo hurt and love lost between these two. I’m interested to see what happened especially since Gordo is doesn’t really trust the wolves.
I have all my fingers and toes crossed that even though this book will destroy my heart that these two get a second chance romance.
That’s all for me. Comment down below and let me know which books are you reading this month.
Until next time, happy reading!
