Summer of Spicy

Romance Summer Reading Guide

Find the Romance summer reading list that is right for you with our Spicy Scale! While every title on this page is full of love, we know readers might want to know before they read exactly how spicy these titles get, so we've categorized them!

  • 1 Pepper: Any physical intimacy beyond kissing will be off the page, meaning implied or "fade-to-black" rather than explicitly written out.
  • 3 Peppers: Things are heating up! The romance in these titles will get spicy (meaning explicit encounters between characters), but the spice is limited to only one or two explicit scenes.
  • 4 Pepper Titles: Be sure you have a glass of water handy! These titles are heavy on the love, heavy on the longing, and definitely heavy on the spice, with physical intimacy being a part of the narrative throughout.

Featured Author

Colleen Hoover

The Queen of #BookTok Colleen Hoover is our Summer of Spicy spotlight author! And how could she not be with hits like It Ends With Us, Verity, and Ugly Love? Since her first book Slammed hit the shelves in 2012, she has pretty much never left the bestsellers list, and her bibliography alone makes a stellar (and okay, hot) summer reading list.
