June might not technically be the start of summer, but, it’s the perfect romance book reading time. Reading romances in the sunshine is exactly what reading dreams are made of.

While everyone has different tastes in their favorite genre, these three summer months always promise exciting releases. We’re skipping ahead though as we’re talking about June releases and there are plenty to get excited about.

There’s something special about summer reading, whether you’re looking for a new author to enjoy, picking up a re-release, or going back to an author or trope you love. If you did your local library’s summer reading challenge, then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Of course, as adults, there is something even more fun about reading or listening to a romance at the beach.

No matter if you’re on vacation or are just enjoying a warm evening day, these romance books need to be on your radar for summer reading.

These romance books are all exciting new releases coming out in June 2023.
