Happy National Ice Cream Day! If there was ever a treat we loved more than ice cream, we would be hard pressed to find it. (Just kidding–we love cake and cookies just as much.) In honor of this national day, we’re matching your favorite ice cream flavor* to your next read.
Don’t believe what you hear—vanilla isn’t boring! It’s well-liked by everyone; therefore, you should read Keeping Mr. Right Now by Robin Bielman because no matter your preference—sweet, sexy, or humorous—you will find something to love about this book!
Chocolate is arguably a girl’s best friend. It gets us through the best and worst of times, which is why you should read Falling for Her Enemy by Victoria James. This read features a set of best friends (Alex, Kate, and Cara) you will wish were your own because like chocolate, they are always there for one another.
Strawberry is fresh, sweet, and perfect for summer, and so is Abby Road by Ophelia London. The writing is fresh, the characters are sweet, and the story has the perfect summer setting–the beach! Like with strawberry ice cream, you won’t be disappointed if you pick up this book!
Mint and chocolate chips? Doesn’t necessarily sound like the best combination, but in reality, they’re absolutely perfect together. Much like Michael and Mia from Neighbors with Benefits by Marissa Clarke. These characters are complete opposites, yet they fit and are a joy to read about!
Can’t decide between ice cream and cookies? Just eat them both! That’s what Natalie and Eric from Truly, Madly, Sweetly by Kira Archer would do! Like you, these characters know how to indulge their sweet tooth, so you’ll have no trouble connecting with them.
(BONUS: Book two, Totally, Sweetly, Irrevocably releases tomorrow!)
If you like coffee ice cream, chances are you are obsessed with coffee in general, which means you’re like a little energizer bunny—you never stop working. Sounds a lot like Dr. Jackson DeMatteo from How to Save a Surgeon by C.M. Stone. Much like you, Jackson dedicates himself to his career and could really use a break. Spend your time off getting to know this adorable couple!
Peanut butter is an all american snack. Not only do we eat it as ice cream, but we eat in on sandwiches, in cereal, and even by the spoonful! So if you’re all about celebrating America’s gifts, then you’ll love Resisting the Hero by Cindi Madsen. With a strong and sassy heroine and smoking hot hero, Resisting the Hero is truly a gift to romance readers.
Your tastes tend to lean towards the unique, which is why you will love Scardust by Suzanne van Rooyen. This new adult novel is not only sci-fi; it’s also a male/male romance, which means there’s no way you won’t be able to appreciate this story’s individuality!
*This list features only a fraction of existing ice cream flavors, but we’re positive you can find a flavor you have a passing like for, and in turn, you can find a new read that you will love!
