🔥 Our November book picks are here


Things are about to heat up with our November slow burn theme, starting with these spicy book picks.

The fantasy romance book brings all of our favorite tropes: enemies to lovers, forbidden romance, forced proximity, and ties them together with *scarlet ribbon* left by the hottest court jester you could ever dream up. (The court jester as the sexy spicy hero? YEAH HE IS.) On top of the immersive, alluring, and multifaceted story, these book boxes are created in partnership with the author. Your book will be signed, and the playlist is a musical collab!

The contemporary romance book, which just got a gorgeous new cover, is packed full of all the pining and angst that make slow burn, well, burnnnn, while delivering on all the sizzle that keeps that flame lit. Plus, who doesn’t love an MMC who gets on his knees to remove her heels? Or switches between calling her brat and love? Or worships every inch of her body?

Okay, okay—let’s light this candle, eh?

Our November Fantasy Romance pick:

Trick by Natalia Jaster

Cover of Trick book

Stay away from the Court Jester. Especially if you’re a good little princess …

The Court Jester marks his targets with a ribbon. That’s how I find out I’m next.

The moment that band of scarlet fabric appears on my pillow, I know it’s a promise—a bad omen delivered by someone wicked.

He’s powerful. He’s sinful.

They whisper about him in the castle’s shadowed halls. Everyone fears his devilish tongue, yet everyone desires his heated touch.

With each seductive temptation, I fall under the jester’s spell. With every forbidden moment, he ignites a fire that I’ve never known before.

But the jester is guarding a treasonous secret. And becoming his obsession is dangerous.

As a good little princess, I should know. Because if I don’t risk my ruin, I’ll surely sacrifice my heart.

Our November Contemporary Romance pick:

The Roommate Risk by Talia Hibbert

Cover of The Roommate Risk book

Two best friends. Seven years of pining. One explosive summer …

Jasmine Allen believes in bad luck, great wine, and the seductive power of a stiletto heel. What she doesn’t believe in is love. Her life is perfect without all that romance rubbish—until a plumbing disaster screws everything up and leaves Jas homeless. Luckily, she has someone to turn to: her best friend Rahul.

For seven years, Rahul Khan has followed three simple rules.
* Don’t touch Jasmine if you can help it.
* Don’t look at her arse in that skirt.
* And don’t ever—ever—tell her you love her.

He should’ve added another rule: Do not, under any circumstances, let Jas move into your house.

Now Rahul is living with the friend he can’t have, and it’s decimating his control. He knows their shared dinners aren’t dates, their late-night kisses are a mistake, and the tenderness in Jasmine’s gaze is only temporary. One wrong word could send his skittish best friend running.

So why is he tempted to risk it all?

You can expect:

  • Friends to lovers
  • “Say please."
  • Forced proximity

 Content warnings:

  • Parental neglect and abandonment
  • Parental death
  • Accidental bloody injury
  • Alcohol abuse and dependence
  • If there is a particular content theme that is triggering for you, we suggest doing additional research on the title to ensure your mental health.
