New Adult New Releases: September

Ready for some new releases that are spicier than your PSL?

It's officially fall! And thank Gods because I am seriously so ready for an excuse to stay inside, drink tea, and do nothing but read for the next six months. (Okay, and obviously we all still have to go to work, take care of our kids blah blah blah, but come on! Let's fantasize for a moment!)

These new adult new releases are the perfect reads to cozy up with this season. Let's dive in and get to know them.

Savage (September 18th)

"I'd rather be a savage with you than be civilized alone."

This is a standalone villain's origin story for the New Adult dystopian series Thalassic. It's a high-stakes spicy adventure featuring a romance between a morally gray shipwrecked pirate and a rich man's daughter with a mysterious past. If you like snarky banter, fast-paced action, diversity rep, and plot twists, this one is for you.

(You don't need to read the rest of the series to read this book!)

Trigger warning: people cheat on each other in this book. There is also violence, some of it against whales.

Two hellhounds walk into a team-building exercise...

USA Today Best-Selling author Laura Greenwood has another installment in her light-hearted sweet shifter romance series Obscure Academy. It features a chance meeting between two hellhounds on a team-building weekend that grows into more. If you're looking for upbeat paranormal romance with a guaranteed happy ending, check out this series.

Birth of Resilience (September 21st)

Betrayal strikes deep in bonds forged in friendship and loyalty.

Book two in Stefanie Chu's Knights of the Alliance series is a pulse-pounding speculative fantasy full of mystery, suspense, and epic world building. Featuring a romantic duo whose loyalty to one another is put to the test when secrets about the past are revealed, this book will keep you guessing until the very end!

Flames Like Darkness (September 30th)

Her flames consume. His shadows devour.

This standalone romantasy from Belle Manuel and Angelina J. Streffort is perfect for fans of Blood Heir and Throne of Glass. A dual-POV romance between the heiress to a city who is mistakenly kidnapped and strikes a fateful bargain with her kidnapper. If you're into thrilling fae romance, definitely check this one out.
