If you’re a fan of romance books, you know it can be tough to keep up with all of the new releases. With so many romances released each year, there are a lot of new ones to keep track of, along with some backlist titles.

However, have no fear, as Culturess is here to be your guide on which April romance book releases to add to your TBR. If you don’t know what a TBR is, it stands for “To Be Read”, which is what books you plan on reading eventually.

This list is going to be talking about a handful because unsurprisingly, April isn’t a huge month for book releases. Once it starts getting into the spring and summer months though, it’s going to be a great time for releases since we’ll be hanging outside, usually with books in our hands.

Either way, let’s get into the six romance books releasing in April that you should have on your TBR.

These six April releases are a must-add to your TBR.

Firstly, no list with romance books would be complete without a few sequels. For most romance book series, you can usually read each book as a standalone aside from potentially getting spoilers from the first book or future books in the series. However, the one standout for April has to be the second book in Christina C Jones’ Predators MC series. It is the Black love motorcycle club romance Raised by Wolves, which is a continuation of the first book.

As someone who is currently reading CCJ’s backlist and has yet to read the first book, this is such an exciting addition to her already extensive catalog. Another sequel in a companion series is The Wedding Crasher by Mia Sosa. The first book in the series, The Worst Best Man, was a delightful enemies-to-lovers story, and this time it’s a fake-dating story between two people who have an unusual meet-cute which sounds like it has the potential to be tons of fun.

Another sequel releasing in April is No Rings Attached by Rachel Lacey. This is a sapphic rom-com featuring the best friend of the MC from book 1, and it’s her deciding to take a friend to her brother’s wedding as a fake date. The first book was fun and pretty low-angst, plus it’s an Amazon publication, so the book should be available for reading and listening on Kindle Unlimited.

Moving onto the standalone books, let’s get into one I’m sure a lot of romance readers are looking forward to. That’s The No-Show by Beth O’Leary. Known for her debut romance, The Flatshare, Beth O’Leary has been moving away from the romance genre slowly, but this looks like her return to form. This book follows three women who are stood up on Valentine’s Day at the same time, and it sounds like it’s going to be absolutely bonkers.

Keeping with the bonkers theme, it’s only right to feature Go Hex Yourself by Jessica Clare next, which is another witchy romance book. This book seems like it’s going to be an enemies-to-lovers story about a girl who works for a witch and the romance she has with her employee’s nephew, which just sounds so fun. Considering how popular witchy romance books have been, it’ll be exciting to see how Jessica Clare makes the story her own.

Last but certainly not least is The Romantic Agenda by Claire Kann, which is Claire Kann’s first adult romance release after releasing some YA books. This is another romantic comedy, and it’s featuring an asexual character teaming up with her best friend’s girlfriend’s best friend to try and make him jealous and see what he’s missing. The book sounds like it’s going to be juicy with lots of drama, fun, and romance mixed in. Plus the cover is absolutely stunning, so you really can’t go wrong.

Next. Delilah Green Doesn’t Care is a sweet sapphic romance and more. dark
