Fancy cars that go very fast, you know they never last no, no
What you need is a big strong hand
To lift you to your higher ground
Make you feel like a queen on a throne
Make him love you 'til you can't come down🎶

Courtney Milan is now officially one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. This is a fantastic enemies to lovers romance, and I swear Courtney Milan has either gone through grad school in the sciences or had someone near and dear to her do so. Some of the things she writes about it are just spot on.

Heretherebedragons Same. I love that about her books. 👩‍🔬 And yes, you are correct. She does have a background in the sciences. She did an interview a podcast a while back and mentioned something a grad degree in theoretical chemistry, I think. So cool. 8mo
jpmcwisemorgan I don‘t know about a science background but she was a lawyer. 8mo
jpmcwisemorgan @Heretherebedragons I‘m was curious so I went to check out her bio on Twitter and yes, she has a Masters in theoretical chemistry to go along with her law degree. That explains a lot! (edited) 8mo

Milan does make me feel giddy and good as a reader. She's my bulletproof. This contemporary, geeky science, emotion filled romance was really good.

The main strenght is how the two characters make their journey through emotions, fears, past and future.

This is set in the Cyclone series. It can easily be read on its own. Maria is an amazing character, so is Jay.

I just read the first two books of the Cyclone series and am absolutely in love. Courtney Milan writes witty banter that has you yelling things at the book. Book 1 is about Tina and Blake trading lives- also deals with poverty, eating disorder, drug use. Hold Me ( trans Latina MC, BI MC interracial POC romance, anxiety, sibling death) is about Maria and Jay and is SO well-developed, not just the romance, but their characters itself. 😍🙌🏽

A contemporary #romantsy , a You Got Mail, type story.: Maria writes an apocalypse scenario blog ,anonymously, Jay is a fan of the blog, but not a fan of Maria. This is la lovely #diverseread .

Last year I realized that I hadn't read very many (or really any) romance novels in my life and I wanted to fix that so in 2017 I committed to reading 4 (1 per quarter)! So far I have read Sarah MacLean, Beverly Jenkins, and Eloisa James, and I really enjoyed all of them, but they were all historical so for the last quarter I figured I had to pick up a contemporary and I've heard good things about this one! #modernlove #septembowie

Cinfhen It's nice to mix things up!!! I find I lose patience with #romantsy 🤷‍♀️ 2y
Leelee.reads The Hating Game is great if you are looking for more contemporary titles. Super cute, sexy and fun. 2y

Book two of Cyclone Series,Maria and Jay meet and immediately despise each other. He makes a stupid split second judgement based on her appearance (beautiful=dumb) and their 'relationship' devolves from there. However, they know each other online by pseudonyms and have been secretly texting and falling in love for nearly two years and once they learn their secret identities it's hard to move forward.
I loved this book about evolving relationships!

Y'all... Today is the one year anniversary of NC's HB2 and also the best day to shove this book in everyone's face. Maria is a trans woman who has this blog that everyone loves about the apocalypse. She's also girly and wonderful and Jay is super judge-y. But then he realizes she's Em. READ THIS RIGHT NOW ALL OF YOU. #romantsy

I'm not a huge fan of contemporary romance, but HOLD ME by Courtney Milan was brilliant. It touches on issues of sexism, gender identity and workaholism in a way that was sensitive and funny. Highly recommended.

Burning questions!

Bookzombie 😂 I never really thought about that. 3y
Smrloomis 😂👍🏽 that's hysterical 3y
alanacristin I like that attempt at conjugation ??? It's like "sheep" but if they're personified maybe if could become "edamametachi" ??? though my Japanese husband would groan if I suggested such things ? 3y

Books_Wine_Repeat Edamamus! 😂👍 3y
alanacristin Oh wait, we were thinking singular 3y
bates_barb Fun fact, for the most part, Japanese does not use a plural form for nouns. There are some exceptions, mostly for pronouns, but the singular of "edamame" is "edamame". 3y

Waiting for them to discover that they know (and dislike) each other in real life is reminding me of the tension in Unspoken by Sara Rees Brennan and Shop Around the Corner/In the Good Old Summertime/You've Got Mail

Looking forward to reading this follow-up to Trade Me, which features Maria! Getting a trans character and characters of color from a mainstream romance author is way more rare than it ought to be.

Thank you vacation for allowing me to read a whole book in less than 24 hours! And thank you Courtney Milan for writing the kind of books that I just don't want to put down. I fell in love with her historical romances, and now I'm really enjoying her first contemporary series. I was a little nervous about the hero, who I heard started as mostly an asshole. True, but the evolution and payoff was very satisfying.

This book is on my #TBR. I picked it up, realised I wasn't in the mood for it, and decided to save it for another day. Mood definitely affects how I read my books. In case you're wondering, the steak was meh, and the rosé was good in the sense that I'm slightly tipsy. Now I need a siesta... #romantsy #booksandwine #ebook

Chachic The steak looks good but sad that it was meh. At least the wine was good? I read Trade Me and it was just so-so for me so not sure if I should pick up this one. 3y

Squeeeee! How about a romance to die for with a trans heroine whose trans-ness is just taken for granted. Yes yes yes. All the this. It's hot. It's nerdy. And I bought this one so I OWN it. #romance #contemporary #weneeddiversebooks

This is super nerdy romantic awesomeness. For those of you familiar with Trade Me, this is Maria's story.

More importantly, there is math flirting. MATH FLIRTING!
