After the whirlwind that was May — so many new romance novels came out last month! — June is definitely not slowing down. The avalanche of new books continues to grow and grow and soon enough we’re all going to be buried under it. But personally, I don’t mind one bit. When new books are released into the world, it means new stories that we consume and eventually can love and enjoy on days we feel our lowest. These new romance releases coming out in June are perfect for these days and the season overall.

The line-up for this summer is impressive, to say the least. This summer is starting on the right note. June is bringing cozy, refreshing, and spectacular romance novels into our lives. From accidental pregnancies with your one-night stand to magical apartments that pair you up with a guy living seven years in the past, the romance genre is not here to play. The next books in this list are going to make this season even better.

This is just a small piece of a large cake for the new releases party. I wish I could include them all, but we’d have been here all day. I know Love, Theoretically comes out this month too, but I did want to highlight books that are probably less known. But that doesn’t mean we’re all not super excited for Ali Hazelwood’s newest release as well!

Babymoon or Bust by Ava Hunter

Ava Hunter’s romance is the perfect book for the summer! Stuck together in paradise, Tessie has to spend three days with her baby daddy to figure out how to raise their son. She’s your girl if you want to organize, decorate, and remodel your home, but when it comes to true love, she rather just avoid it. Until a one-night stand becomes an accidental pregnancy! But how is this going to work? She loves her glamorous life in L.A. while Solomon lives in Alaska. But soon, they’ll figure out that falling in love happens unexpectedly.

Will They Or Won’t They by Ava Wilder

Summer TV shows are about to start releasing. If there’s a little romance and lots of chemistry between the actors, I bet half my lung that everyone is going to think they’re dating in real life. But half of the time, that’s not reality. And maybe…they might even hate each other just like Lilah Hunter and Shane McCarthy in Will They or Won’t They.

When Lilah comes back for the ninth and final season of Intangible, it means facing Shane, her co-star and love interest in the show. But after their secret fling at the end of season one (that ended badly!), they have hated each other since. Will this be their chance for a second try at their epic love story?

Yasmin only wants to sleep, especially after a night shift. But when she hears a very loud voice singing on a Sunday morning, she’s about to lose it. You know what they say: there’s only one step from hate to love.

But Nick finds himself always there when Andy needs help and slowly, but surely, they start to realize that one cannot say no to love. Not when it feels right.

When your life is going smoothly and the goals you’re trying to achieve are clear to you, would you risk it all for a chance at love? Especially if the person you think is your forever is none other than one of your closest friends.
