There are certain tropes we've come to dismantle in romance books and one of those is not being able to have a career and a relationship.

While that trope has been around forever, modern romance books are bucking the tradition. That's why I wanted to show some love to these books during Women's History Month.

Whether you're looking for something new to add to your TBR or just need that little push to keep going, these romances prove you can have it all. It might not be easy, but it's worth it in the end.

Somehow, there's something so satisfying about seeing characters you like, being able to have it all and that's why I had to feature some favorites.

These romance books are great Women's History Month reads.

1. Game On by Seressia Glass

The first romance I'm recommending is Game On by Seressia Glass. This was a late 2023 release so I feel like it fell under the radar. However, this book follows an online gamer who after critizing a game is hired to be his consultant to make the game better. She also has her career on top of helping him out but it's honestly such a fun book.

If you haven't picked up Game On yet and you're looking for a nerdy romance, then look no further.

2. The Ultimate Pi Day Party by Jackie Lau

The next book I chose was The Ultimate Pi Day Party which was an easy pick. If you've read Jackie Lau before, you'll know that her romances always have a little something more. This time, we're following the romance between Josh, a tech CEO and Sarah, who owns a pie shop. They end up meeting due to Josh asking her to cater a Pi Day Party at his job.

Considering that Pi Day is upon us, I think this is a great one to pick up. Plus you'll end up falling in love with these characters and their story so you'll want to read on.

3. The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren

If you're looking for a romance with a woman in STEM, then try out The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren. I don't know how this happened again but this is a romance between River, a CEO, and Jess who is a freelance statistician. The two meet after Jess sends her DNA to find her perfect match and it ends up being River.

While the two do have a romance, this book also focuses on Jess' career and her being a single mother which is incredibly realistic. If you haven't picked up this book from the author duo, then you're doing yourself a disservice.

4. Here To Stay by Adriana Herrera

When it comes to Adriana Herrera's books, you always know you're in for a treat. Here to Stay is no different as we're following Julia who recently moved to Dallas. Even though her boyfriend dumped her, she's now working as part of the charitable branch of a high-fashion company. Things seem fine until she meets Rocco.

Rocco was brought in by the CEO to figure out where the company could cut costs and Julia's department is in danger of folding. That adds some delicious tension to this romance and you won't be able to put it down. Plus I read this one while on a work trip so it was one of the first to come to mind.

5. Queen Move by Kennedy Ryan

Another author who always brings it is Kennedy Ryan and this time, I have to recommend Queen Move. This is a romance between Kimba and Ezra who are getting their second chance after being childhood sweethearts. If you're looking for an emotional romance, then look no further than this.

What I adored the most was how much of a queen Kimba was. She worked hard, played hard, and was truly on that #girlboss energy. She didn't give up and was determined with every task she was given. If you haven't picked this book up yet, then Women's History Month is the best excuse.

6. Sweet Talkin' Lover by Tracey Livesay

Wrapping things up, I'd be remiss to not include a romance from Tracey Livesay. Every single one of her books I've read always features a heroine with a great career. This one is no expection as it follows Calla who is a marketing manager and is tasked with trying to shut down a factory. It comes to a head when she meets the town's mayor, Wyatt and the chemistry is there.

While I don't want to get too in-depth into the plot, this is such a fun romance and feels like a Hallmark movie but a lot sexier. If you haven't tried out Tracey Livesay, then I think her Girls Trip series is a great place to start.
