D’Vaughn and Kris Plan a Wedding

In a romance featuring Black joy, plus-sized beauty, and Mexican pride, the conflicts are entirely believable, and not overly dramatic, and make for a thoroughly enjoyable read. It is fake dating at its best.

Fake It

Trans patrons can read this book without worrying about deadnaming, microaggressions related to being trans, or other trauma often associated with trans stories.

I Kissed a Girl

This debut is perfect for fans of B-movie horror and rom-com flicks alike. The two main characters are both Jewish, and the book features a large cast of queer and trans supporting characters. A content warning for some stalking, but otherwise this a fun, fast-paced read.
