Anticipated Reads 2023

As 2022 is moving to our rear review I am excited to look ahead at some of the anticipated romance book releases coming 2023. 2022 has not been the best of reading years for me. It has been a struggle to find books that are keeping my attention. Books seems to be missing some the excitement they use to have for read. After experiencing several reading slumps some lasting days while others dragged on for a month.

I have big hopes for these titles releasing in 2023.

One of my favorite reads in 2022 was After Hours on Milagro Street by Angelina M Lopez, her follow up to this book Full Moon Over Freedom is coming in September 2023. Another follow up book I am so excited for is a DIsh Best Served Hot by Natalie Caña.

I have to talk about the additions coming to the Sawyer Bennett’s Pittsburgh Titans Series. This Series Kicked of 2022 and each book seems to be better than the last. The strength of these characters as they move through grief. The team is trying to rebuild a new life in the rubble of the past is hypnotizing.

This series the author has addresses such topics as grief, PTSD, survivor guilt to name a few. Sawyer Bennett has done this in a way that in each story we are given a beautiful HEA with dynamic characters that are destined to be part of your heart. The Titans have the right balance of hockey, romance and friendship you expect from the author.

Have you read the first few books in the Kincaid Family Series from Kaylee Ryan?

You can find my reviews of the first 2 books here or here

This series about 8 brothers and their life in small town Georgia is fantastic. They have great parents. The story are low angst and no unnecessary drama. They are just what I want in a contemporary romance. I can not recommend this series enough. The author does a great job of centering the story on the main couple but also allowing space for the family dynamic.
