From what I’ve experienced, most romance novel these days are full of angst and tragedy and drama. I like angst in romances. But sometimes it can get a bit…tiring and monotonous. Those are the times i search for light reads which can make me feel all good and mushy and have me smiling throughout. So here’s a list of my top five favorite feel-good stand-alones and series.!

(1) Chicago Stars Series by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
.Genre : Adult Contemporary Romance
This is not really a new series. These books were written between 1994 to 2004, and there might be another book coming up to join this phenomenal series. Each one of these books is absolutely hilarious. And my god, don’t even get me started on the ‘steam quotient’ of these books because they’re simply off the charts! This series is fun and sexy and light with a pinch of drama and really amazing romance. It’s just the 4th book i.e. Dream a little dream that’s a little sombre and serious.
These books can be read in a sequence as well as separately as stand-alones, so that’s a great thing too! ❤
Oh, and if you haven’t read SEP’s books before, I think it’s high time you do it! She’s simply brilliant!!
(2) Chocolate Lovers Series by Tara Sivec
Genre : Adult Contemporary Romance
This is one of those series which will literally make your stomach hurt and eyes water because it’s so funny, you can’t get through even a couple of pages without laughing your – pardon me for the language – asses off!! These books are so absolutely hilarious and hot, they’re definitely one of my favorites! Do not miss them!
Also I feel they’re supposed to be read in sequence, so yeah, do give’em a try! :p
(3) Sustained (The Legal Briefs #2) by Emma Chase
Genre : Adult Contemporary Romance
If you’ve read Emma Chase’s books before, I’m sure you’ll be aware of the fact how awesomely she handle humor and heat in her novels. Sustained is the second book The Legal Briefs series and I loved it much, much more than the first book. All I can say about this one is that – ONE OF THE CUTEST, FUNNIEST, HOTTEST, SWEETEST, MOST AMAZING-EST BOOKS I’VE EVER READ!
Oh, and this can totally be read as a stand-alone! Go for it!! 😀
(4) Off-Campus Series by Elle Kennedy
These two books are ahhhmaazing!! There are just two books for the time being, and the third one is coming soon. I absolutely adored both these books! They were so hilarious, they kept me grinning all through. The characters are totally fabulous and the whole atmosphere in these books make you feel happy and light. Especially for those who enjoy romances involving college student, this book is a must read. Super hot, super cute, super funny, there’s also a tad bit of drama which will not bore you at all!
Oh, and I would suggest one to read this is sequence too because most of the characters in the first book appears in the next! 😉
(5) Neighbor from Hell by R.L. Mathewson
Adult Contemporary Romance
Neighbor from Hell is literally one hell of a series!! They’ll make you laugh until your stomach hurts! Out of the six books, I’ve read only the first five, and my favorite out of them is the first two i.e. Playing for Keeps and Perfection. The Bradford brothers are so entertaining, you just can’t get enough of them and their food obsession! You should totally try out these books too. ❤
Once again I’d suggest that these should be read in sequence for better understanding, so yeah! :p
