Seroiusly, steamy romance series are a reader's best friend. You know how producers on The Bachelor and The Bachelorettehook you by asking people from previous seasons to come back? So by the time a new season rolls around, you're already hyper invested in that person's quest for love? It's the same deal with romance novels — you keep coming back for more, because you want to see if your favorite characters from previous novels find love.
The first book will usually introduce you to one character and their friends, family, enemies, exes, etc. — and each subsequent novel will zoom in on one of those people and give you their love story.
The wonderful thing about a romance series is that each novel can function as a standalone. Or you can read them in order. Or you can read them out-of-order. There's no wrong way or right way to enjoy a romance series. But, I can guarantee, that by the time you've finished reading through an entire installment, you'll feel as though these characters are some of your closest friends and confidantes. Reading a romance series is an immerse experience.
