Pride Month is here and instead of doing one recommendation post, I’m breaking it up into different categories.
Last week, we talked about M/M romance books which are men loving men stories. The list was a mix of new and older titles which is exactly what this F/F list is since there is going to be some 2023 releases along with some titles released before then.
Before I get into this list, I wanted to clarify one point which is that these romance books are just lesbian romances. These characters are all over the sexuality spectrum whether it be bi or pan or lesbian as I mentioned. Regardless, that’s important to remember when recommending F/F romance books.
With that out of the way, these romance books are all great F/F romances if you’re looking to add to your Pride Month reading.
These F/F romances are awesome for picking up during Pride Month.
With my previous list, these are just some of my favorites and ones I’ve enjoyed so if you have any recommendations, you can share them in the comments because there are so many great ones out there.
1. She Gets The Girl by Rachael Lippincott and Alyson Derrick
The first F/F romance making my list is She Gets The Girl by Rachael Lippincott and Alyson Derrick which is actually two wives. This is a romance between Alex who is essentially a cool girl and Molly, a shy introvert who quickly become friends. Alex is trying to prove to her ex that she’ll be better while Molly is trying to hook up with her dream girl.
Of course, the two end up starting to have feelings for each other and it’s just so fun. There are some dramatic moment as this is a new adult story yet it’s so addicting. Seeing how these two resist their feelings is so utterly relatable and with such a cute cover, you can’t go wrong.
2. The Fiancée Farce by Alexandria Bellefleur
I have read and loved all of Alexandria Bellefleur’s books so I wanted to feature her latest release which is The Fiancée Farce. This book follows Tansy who is a struggling bookstore owner who makes up a fake girlfriend Gemma who ends up finding out about her scheme and playing along.
It isn’t all fun and games though as Gemma is looking to get her inheritance and the two decide to keep it up. While things start off fake, feelings and passion start to erupt between the two and I couldn’t get enough of this book. It’s honestly one of my favorite romances I’ve read this year so I wanted to include it on my Pride Month list.
3. Being Hospitable by Meka James
Moving onto a short novella, this is easily one of my favorite f/f reads. Being Hospitable is the story of Kiki who has a crush on her best friend’s sister, Charley and it only gets worse as the two end up becoming roommates. Even with how short it is, this book is equal parts steamy and fun so if you’re looking for a sapphic Black love read, then Being Hospitable is a must.
4. For Her Consideration by Amy Spalding
This book wasn’t on my radar until I was sent it by Leo PR so I’d like to thank them for that as I adored this one. For Her Consideration is a romance between Nina who works for a talent agency and Ari who is an up-and-coming queer actress. Their romance actually as a way for Nina to get a feel of Ari to write emails for her.
From there, these two become friends and it ends up eventually becoming their romance. This book deals a lot with topic relationships and figuring things out in your career. Even so, their romance was too good so I wanted to include it.
5. D’Vaughn and Kris Plan a Wedding by Chencia C. Higgins
When I first started writing for Culturess again in 2022, I ended up raving about D’Vaughn and Kris Plan a Wedding yet I haven’t talked about it much. However since I’m doing an f/f romance recommendations post, I wanted to bring it back. This is a reality show romance in which Kris and D’Vaughn have to convince their families of their love before getting married if they want to win a prize.
This book has all the tropes and fun you might want including a wedding, fake-dating and even, some angst and tension. Of course, there’s also steam and lots of hilarious moments. All in all if you haven’t picked up this book yet, you’re seriously doing yourself a disservice.
What do you think, my fellow romance readers? What are some of your favorite F/F romance reads?
