My Romance Sub-genre Recs for You: Romantic Comedy

Romance Sub-Genre Recs – Romantic Comedy

Hey, and welcome to my new post series – where I recommend various romance sub-genres to you. The idea came to me the first weekend in February, while I was chatting with Evelina @ Avalinah’s Books. She asked me to recommend romance books to her.

This week, I’m sharing some Romance Sub-Genre Recs in Romantic Comedy. Who doesn’t like some humor with their romance, right? I love authors who are able to make me laugh while also letting me feel all the feels!


This series – Wrong / The Café series – by Jana Aston is hilarious! And it’s also pretty hot. Aston managed to create some very relatable characters. But who definitely suffer from foot-in-mouth disease. And that made for so many laugh-out-loud moments I can’t even count them all!
Aston continues to write, and so, she continues to delight me with her humor and the chemistry between the characters.

The Harbor City series by Avery Flynn is great, too! I got the first book as an audio ARC, and I promptly went on with the next two books. Here, it’s the characters’ dry humor and ironic dialogues that did me in. Plus, there are some incredibly funny situations as well.
The romantic level is very high, too, and I was mesmerized from start to finish.

Man Hands by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby had me howling with laughter! There was just so much going on – and it was all tinted by the humor. A pretty unlikely romance, which was very hot all the same. Some incredible situations. And the fast back-and-forth between the characters made for some great laughs and some even better feels!



Bad Ex Karma cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews


Bad Ex Karma by Donna Cummings is a stand-alone, and it is so much fun! I don’t think I’ve ever read a Cummings novel that didn’t make me laugh, so she has her humorous come-backs down pat!
It’s a contemporary romance, with Delia, who thinks she’s cursed by bad ex karma. And when she met Jonathan, she really didn’t think there was any chance it could work out between them! Delia was a hoot of a main character, and I loved her!


Rock Chick Rescue cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews


The Rock Chick series by Kristen Ashley has everything I love in a romance! There are some very hot alpha males. Some very funny, and loyal, female characters. Good friends. A little mystery. Some suspense. And lots of both laughter and hotness. I breezed through this whole series in the span of a couple of weeks a while ago, and since then, Ashley has been on my must-buy list every time she releases a new book.
Think PIs with crazy skills, women who know what they want, and many humorous exchanges between them all. Plus, there is Tex – the barrista in the local book store 😉

That’s all I have for very much humor, but still in the contemporary romance genre. I may have missed some, so please let me know in the comments if you think there are some titles that belong here!

And please come back next week for my Historical Romance recs 🙂

  1. I’m so glad to see your romcom recs. This is actually a sub-genre that I need to read more often. I think I have the first book in the Jana Aston series.

  2. I have a hard time with contemporary romance in general and comedy is not my go-to either, so this genre might not be one for me. But if I ever feel like reading a rom-com book I will definitely go with your recs (I also bought rom-suspense books because of you, so…)

  3. I’d love a rom com, too bad these seem too steamy for my taste 🙂 but I still haven’t had the time to check out the clean romances (or was it that? Your first post) that you said you might even be able to loan. I haven’t forgotten though, so I’m sure I still will 🙂 love this series of posts!

    • Yeah, these might be a bit too steamy for you.. which is really too bad – because they are really funny!

      Yes, the first or second was for romances with little to no steam – but with lots of chemistry and good stories all the same 🙂
