The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson


You might have read Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson, and The Unexpected Everything is even better (and it has dogs!). Andie is the perfect politician's daughter. Even though her dad is usually in D.C., she manages just fine on her own. She's got an amaze group of besties and the *perf* internship lined up for the summer, but when her dad gets caught up in a political scandal, everything comes crashing down. Her dad—who had always been more of a stranger than a father—comes home and her internship is revoked. Although, the summer starts to take a turn for the better when Andie starts a dog-walking job that leads her to Clark, the sweet, awkward love interest. Even though this is a long book, the summery vibes and lovable characters will have you hooked. 

The Upside of Falling by Alex Light


If you loved the fake dating concept of To All the Boys, you'll love The Upside of Falling. After her parents' divorce, seventeen-year-old Becca is skeptical of true love. But when her ex-bestie teases her for not having a boyfriend, Becca lies and says she has one. The school's football superstar Brett overhears Becca say this, and he steps in to pretend to be her new bf. Since he wants people to stop asking about his love life and Becca wants to keep up with her white lie, they agree to fake date. Sound familiar? This cute read is right up your alley.

Meet Cute: Some People Are Destined to Meet by Various Authors


In the To All the Boys: Always and Forever movie, Lara Jean talks about how she feels like she never had a meet cute with Peter.

It is a collection of short stories by fourteen different authors that are all about soulmates having their meet cute moment.

My Life with the Walter Boys by Ali Novak


This book was originally a Wattpad story, but it was so good that it got published. Goody two-shoes Jackie all of a sudden has to move from New York City to a Colorado ranch when her family dies in a car accident. The Walters, who are old family friends of her mother, take Jackie in. The twist? The Walters have eleven sons that Jackie has to learn to live with. This is a light, fast-paced read that follows Jackie as she navigates a new environment and finds romance along the way.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell


Rainbow Rowell is known for her romance novels like Fangirl and Eleanor & Park, but have you read Carry On yet? In Fangirl, the main character writes fanfiction about a book series called Simon Snow, and Carry On is a deep dive into the fantasy world of Simon Snow. Simon is the Chosen One of the magical world, and Baz, who is a vampire, is his archnemesis at the Watford School of Magicks—until they start falling for each other. Full of sweet moments, Carry On is a fresh take on the enemies-to-lovers trope and reads like a contemporary romance set in a fantasy world.
