[Note from Frolic: We’re so excited to have author Amy Aislin recommending her favorite New Adult romances today. Take it away, Amy!]
Thank you for joining me to celebrate the release of my newest m/m romance, Home for a Cowboy, the first book in my brand new cowboy romance trilogy. It features a friends to lovers, opposites attract romance, lots of stargazing, sexy times in the hay, and pining for days! And thank you to Frolic for having me.
Home for a Cowboy is a new adult romance between two recently graduated college friends. I love new adult romances and have, in fact, written more than one. There’s something about young twenty-somethings finding themselves, following their dreams, dealing with adulting, and encountering love that speaks to me. Today, I’ve come with a list of some of my favorite new adult romances.
For What It’s Worth by S.M. James
This threesome totally worked. Rory, Justin, and Micah are so different from each other but also have so much in common. They complement each other beautifully and seeing them not only support each other in their growth, but talk things through in order to make their relationship thrive? It was refreshing to see these young college-aged guys make a commitment to each other and their relationship.
Gemini Keeps Capricorn by Anyta Sunday
The banter makes this book. As a Capricorn myself, I can totally relate to Lloyd. And I have a Gemini sister, so I understand the dynamic between the two. Cool and calm Lloyd is a perfect contrast to impulsive and oblivious Wesley. It was charming and sweet and funny, and I recommend it to everyone.
Golden Boy and the Two Bears by Nash Summers
I must have something for oblivious main characters, because here’s another one. This is the middle book in the Happily Ever Asher trilogy, and it’s all adorable fluffiness and cuteness. The banter is spot on in this one too—I laughed out loud several times.
Playing to Win by Avery Cockburn
I’ve reread this one several times; it’s just that good. Colin grew up in the Glasgow slums and Andrew is a Lord. It’s enemies to lovers at its best, in my opinion, and Avery Cockburn does such a wonderful job of weaving the romance in with important political and social issues. It’s fantastically written, relevant, and full of feels.
Antisocial by Heidi Cullinan
I also love reading books with main characters on the gray-spectrum of sexuality, and this one is written beautifully. Against a backdrop of college and family issues, Xander allows Skylar the freedom of finding out who he truly is.
I love myself a well-written new adult romance. What are some of your favorites?

Home for a Cowboy by Amy Aislin, out now!
Las doesn’t date seasonal workers. Marco’s on a three-month contract.
Lassiter Windsor-March has been planning for his future for as long as he can remember and he knows exactly where that future lies: at his family’s ranch in Wyoming. What doesn’t lie in his future is a summer fling with one of the seasonal workers—they never stick around.
Even if one of those workers is the college crush he’s invited to work a summer job at the ranch.
Marco Terlizzese is as laissez-faire as Las isn’t. He might not know where he’ll be once his contract with Windsor Ranch is up, but he knows three months is plenty of time to get his long-time crush to agree to go out with him.
Amid a starry summer sky, their chemistry ignites as feelings deepen, forcing Las and Marco to decide where they truly belong.
