Oh, so y’all are into this, huh? Well, have no fear because I’ve got more locked and loaded and ready to gush about in 3…2…1…
1. Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton
This might be one of the most gorgeous book covers I’ve ever seen, so can you imagine how brilliant it would be to watch?! Period pieces always seem to do well on screen and the fact that this one jumps back and forth from 1950’s Cuba to present day Miami makes it a must happen immediately!
If you haven’t read either of these books yet, I’m going to need you to drop everything you’re doing and start right now. Rafe includes a “buff male nanny” falling for his employer who is a badass doctor and strong, amazing single mom. Xeni is about a marriage of INconvenience between a bold and funny AF teacher and a Scottish bagpipe playing mountain of a man. There’s also pegging. I think I’ve made my point.
4. A Lady’s Formula for Love by Elizabeth Everett
Okay, listen. This book is fantastic and I truly cannot get over how much I loved it. Grumpy and Sunshine AND a bodyguard trope? AND female scientists?? I can’t breathe. If this doesn’t end up on screen then something is seriously wrong!
5. The This Man series by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Alright, hear me out. I know Jesse Ward is a giant overbearing psychopath, but I just love him okay?? There’s an age gap and there’s a sex club and so.much.drama. Oh, and steamy sex. Lots and lots of super steamy sex.
6. The Dreamers series by Adriana Hererra
This would be such a fantastic series! And honestly, with how poignant the stories are, one we really need right now. I cannot stress enough how important it is for us to see more stories highlighting BIPOC. Yes, their struggles and hardships, but also their joy and love. Adriana Hererra flawlessly captures all of these things.
7. The Brayshaw series by Meagan Brandy
This series is WILD. It’s basically like a mixture of The OC and One Tree Hill on performance enhancing drugs. And I don’t know about you but I am here for that kind of drama and would binge-watch the hell out of it!
8. You Had Me at Hola by Alexis Daria
Telenovela stars meet and fall in love on set and it is STEAMY. This would be such a fun series to watch and leaves the door open for lots of seasons and spin-offs. Not to mention, the cast would be wildly attractive and super fun to stare at!
