Ah, summer. Time to pack your bags and hit the beach or plan a quick getaway... with your stack of steamy romance novels in tow. Not that there is ever a bad time to read romance books, but reading them in the summer feels doubly satisfying because of the beautiful weather and all the optimism and lovey dovey feelings these books elicit. If you're book-crazed like me and follow authors, bookstagrammers, and bloggers on social media, then you probably see an influx of announcements of upcoming books that you're constantly adding to your never-ending To-Be-Read list.
Given how addicting and quick it is to go through romances, there's something really satisfying in getting a new book from your favorite author almost instantly. The self-publishing phenomenon was huge a few years ago, but its popularity has remained steady. Indie books assure readers they don't have to play the waiting game nearly as much because books are pretty much ready to go as soon as authors hit the "Publish" button on Amazon or whatever self-publishing platforms they use.
If you're restless to get your hands on a hot romance, here are 15 new steamy indie romances that will satiate our appetites this summer.
