YA romance books to read in spring/summer

Young adult books are my favourite to read. The provide a sense of comfort without being difficult or 
overwhelming to consume. Mix YA with romance and you have a great combination for an easy read. 
There is no specific time to read certain genres, you can read romance in autumn and horror in the 
summer, there is no right or wrong. However there is something about reading a soppy romance book
 in the spring/summer that makes the book more enjoyable. 

Frank's parents emigrated from Korea, and have pretty much one big rule for Frank - he must only date 
Korean girls. So, when Frank falls for Brit, who is smart, beautiful and white, he needs a plan. His friend 
Joy Song is in the same boat and so they make a pact: they'll pretend to date each other in order to gain 
their freedom. Frank and Joy agree that fake-dating is the perfect plan. But, they soon discover that the 
only thing more complicated than pretending to be in love, is actually falling in love. 

Every year Isabel spends a perfect summer at her favourite place in the world - the Fisher family's beach 
house. It has everything a girl could want: a swimming pool, a private stretch of sandy beach... and two 
(very cute) boys: Unavailable, aloof Conrad - who she's been in love with forever Friendly, relaxed 
Jeremiah- the only one who's ever really paid her any attention. But this year something is different. This 
year, the boys seem to really notice Isabel for the first time. It's going to be an amazing summer - and one 
she'll never forget.

When Ollie meets Will over the summer break, he thinks he's found his Happily Ever After. But once 
summer's ended, Will stops texting him back, and Ollie finds himself short of his fairy-tale ending. 
family emergency sees Ollie uprooted and enrolled at a new school across the country - Will's school - 
and Ollie finds that the sweet, affectionate and comfortably queer guy he knew from summer isn't the 
same one attending Collinswood High. Ollie isn't going to pine after a guy who isn't ready for a 
relationship. But as school life repeatedly throws them together, from music class to the lunch table, Ollie 
finds his resolve weakening. The last time he gave Will his heart, Will handed it back to him trampled and 
battered. Ollie would have to be an idiot to trust him with it again. Right?

Catalina Martín desperately needs a date to her sister's wedding. Especially when her little white lie 
about her American boyfriend has spiralled out of control. Now everyone she knows – including her ex-
boyfriend and his fiancée – will be there. She only has four weeks to find someone willing to cross the 
Atlantic for her and aid in her deception. NYC to Spain is no short flight and her family won't be easy to 
fool. . . But even then, when Aaron Blackford – the 6'4", blue-eyed pain in the arse – offers to step in, 
she's not tempted even for a second. Never has there been a more aggravating, blood-boiling and 
insufferable man. But Catalina is desperate and as the wedding gets closer the more desirable an option 
Aaron Blackford becomes.

As a third-year Ph.D. candidate, Olive Smith doesn't believe in lasting romantic relationships but her best 
friend does, and that's what got her into this situation. Convincing Anh that Olive on her way to a happily 
ever after was always going to be tough, scientists require proof. So, like any self-respecting woman, 
Olive panics and kisses the first man she sees.That man is none other than Adam Carlsen, a young hotshot 
professor and well-known ass. Which is why Olive is positively floored when he agrees to keep her 
charade a secret and be her fake boyfriend. But when a big science conference goes haywire and Adam 
surprises her again with his unyielding support (and his unyielding abs), their little experiment feels 
dangerously close to combustion. Olive soon discovers that the only thing more complicated than a 
hypothesis on love is putting her own heart under the microscope.
