Hi guys! Today the Book Recommendations are back. A few weeks ago I recommended some of my Favorite New Adult books (here) but as I said at that time that would only be part one because I read a lot of new adult. So today I’m talking about a few more new adult books I love. But anyway, let’s see which books made to this list 🙂 .
The Rule Maker (The Rule Breakers #2) by Jennifer Blackwood
Things I’d love to say to Ryder Covington…
I hate you more than a hole in my favorite pair of leggings.
Your smirk makes me want to yell in all shouty caps.
You’re really gorgeous…until you open your mouth.
Stop looking at me like that. You’re not ripping my panties off.
Saying those things to him would be the whipped cream on top of my rocky road ice cream, but I can’t, because he’s my client. And I’m up for a promotion. Oh, and the little fact that my boss told me to give Mr. Covington everything he wants. But the only thing he wants is me. And he can’t have that.
If you love hate to love relationships this book is for you. That was one of the reasons why I loved this book so much. Seeing Zoey and Ryder relationship go from hate to love and how much they grew during that time was amazing. I also loved how important friendship and family are in this book. This is also super funny and Zoey always ends up in the most ridiculous situations so what’s not love in this one? You can read my review about this one here.
Waking Olivia by Elizabeth O’Roark
His father’s debt, a failing farm and a floundering track team. College coach Will Langstrom already has too many responsibilities, and the last thing he needs is Olivia, a beautiful new addition to his team with a bad attitude and a troubled past.
Abandoned and broken, Olivia trusts no one — especially not the cocky track coach the rest of the team adores. But when her past is revealed to Will, she discovers another side to him — one she could grow to love. Forced together by a secret no one else can know – and breaking university rules to do it – Will and Olivia’s connection deepens. As does an attraction that could cost them everything.
I’m seeing a trend in this post so far because I’m two for two in love to hate relationships XD. Waking Olivia is one of those books you go on not expecting a lot but ends up being amazing. I loved everything about it. I loved how intense it was, how emotional and I especially loved Will and Olivia. They were such amazing characters. I just love this book. You can read my review here.
The Year We Hid Away (The Ivy Years #2) by Sarina Bowen
She’s hiding something big. He’s hiding someone small.
Scarlet Crowley’s life was torn apart the day father was arrested for unspeakable crimes. Now the shock has worn off, but not the horror.
It’s a safe bet that Scarlet is the only first year at Harkness College who had to sneak past TV news trucks parked on her front lawn just to leave town. But college will be Scarlet’s fresh start. Clutching a shiny new student ID — with a newly minted name on it — she leaves it all behind. Even if it means lying to the boy she’s falling for.
Bridger McCaulley is a varsity hockey star known for being a player both on and off the ice. But a sobering family crisis takes that all away. Protecting his sister means a precarious living arrangement and constant deception. The only bright spot in his week is the few stolen hours he spends with Scarlet.
The two form a tentative relationship based on the understanding that some things must always be held back. But when grim developments threaten them both, going it alone just won’t work anymore. And if they can’t learn to trust one another now, the families who let them down will take everything they’ve struggled to keep.
Oh look, a book written by Sarina Bowen. That is such a surprise coming from me… NOT. You know how much I love Sarina Bowen’s books. It’s one of those cases where I know that if I’m going to read one of her books I’ll end up loving it for sure. This one was not different. First of all, I absolutely adored Bridger and Scarlet. They are the best and I love how much they helped each other when they needed more. The second reason why I loved this book so much was what I like to call the “single-dad syndrome”. I’m not telling Bridger is a father because he’s not but seeing him taking care of his little sister is the most adorable thing ever. I just loved everything about this one too.

Royally Screwed (Royally #1) by Emma Chase
Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka His Royal Hotness, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant; hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.
Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.
Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.
Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.
There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces, and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately, the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.
But to Olivia, Nicholas is worth it.
Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King… or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.
Who doesn’t love princes falling in love with normal girls?? It’s impossible not to love this book. First of all, prince Nicholas is amazing… and has an accent. Olivia is also amazing and I loved her to bits. Don’t even make me talk about prince Henry. I love that guy and I don’t know what’s taking me so long to read his book. Basically this is amazing especially if you want a really good romance full of chemistry and with a sometimes asshole prince XD.
The Score (Off-Campus #3) by Elle Kennedy
He knows how to score, on and off the ice
Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she’s going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.
It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over
Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.
Just like Sarina Bowen, me talking about Elle Kennedy’s books doesn’t come as a surprise. Almost everyone is aware of my love for the Off-Campus series. It’s also not a secret that The Score is my favorite book in the series and to be honest I don’t know why I haven’t been talking about this book at all the past few months. Come on, Dean DiLaurentis has been my main book boyfriend for almost a year XD. I just really love this series and especially this book, mainly because I love Dean and Allie. they are great. I just loved their relationship okay?? And don’t make me start on Dean with kids… it was swoon-worthy. You can read my review about this one here.
So these are a few more books that I want to recommend. Have you read any of these books or would you read any? Which New Adult books should I read? If you have any recommendations tell me in the comments 🙂 .
