Bookriot's 50 Must-Read Contemporary Romance Novels

"2018 has been a remarkable year for contemporary romance novels and movies. Not only have the pickings been broad and diverse, but several titles have crossed over to mainstream, including The Wedding Date and The Kiss Quotient. Young Adult romance has also come into the mainstream with the runaway success of the Netflix adaptation of To All The Boys I've Loved Before.
This list of 50 Must-Read Contemporary Romance Novels will extend back beyond 2018, but sticks to titles released this decade. Contemporary romance novels have always been a thing, but novels set in current times have a way of becoming outdated as time marches on. These titles are a mix of adult, new adult, and young adult"
