Celebrity romance novels (Lesbian Book Bingo #6)

The 90th Academy Awards ceremony took place earlier this month, so I thought this would be a good time to post the recommended reading list for the celebrity romance square of the Lesbian Book Bingo. If you need to brush up on the book bingo rules, check out the rules post. I think what makes celebrity romances so appealing to many readers is that we get to see the glamour, but also the downside of fame. Whether the famous person is an actress, an athlete, or a singer, love in the limelight has its challenges. Often, seeing two very different …

For some reason, this book feels special. Not that my other books aren’t near and dear to my heart—they are. But this one is extra special.
