I'm not a fast reader nor do I have a lot of time to read but my week at the beach is prime reading time. I prefer a romance that I just can't put down. I'm a 50 yr old woman and hate to admit this but LOVED the Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey series. Didn't care for Safe Haven, too slow and predictable. So now that you know me, tell me what books are "beach worthy"! Thanks BQ

You might want to also post in the Romance forum. They may have some better ideas.

The link is down at the bottom of this page.

E. R. I have loved every book I have read by Donna Fasano. She wrote for Harlequin for many years and is now indie publishing. Her latest is Reclaim My Heart and is only $3.99. Another writer that writes more "chick lit" that I love is Beth Orsoff. My favorite of hers is Girl in the Wild (also only $3.99). If you liked Twilight, I recommend you read The Host by Stephanie Meyer.

ppl who like 50 shades, seem to like Sylvia Day's series - although I haven't read them - and from what I understand they are better written...

if you like hot/spicy - you could try Cherise Sinclair, Lorelei James, Cara McKenna

More popular but still cute reads - Susan Mallery, Kristin Higgins, Victoria Dahl (contemps); Lisa Klepyas, Sabrina Jeffries, Courtney Milan (historical)

if you have a kindle - I've liked Rosalind James' contemps - they are set in New Zealand and feature Rugby players

I did read The Host and loved it! Better than the Twilight books. Poor movie did not do the book justice. Thanks

I love just about anything written by Jennifer Crusie. They are funny romance novels perfect for the beach. My favorite might be Agnes and the Hitman You can get two other very popular titles bundled in Welcome to Temptation/Bet Me

If you're looking for guilty pleasure a la Twilight, Vampire Diaries: Volume 1: The Awakening & The Struggle (Books 1 & 2) is a fun one.

I also very much enjoyed Grave Mercy (Book I): His Fair Assassin, Book I (His Fair Assassin Trilogy).

eta: I can't believe they totally robbed the Twilight series of its cover motif there.
