We all love to read about the bad boys even if we’d never want to date them in real life. There’s something incredibly sexy about the dangerous and mysterious. And come on, we’re all romantics at heart. We always want to see the best in people, no matter how grim their reputations are. Here’s a list of books that can satiate our desire for bad boys.
We’ve all gotten sick of the hearts and flowers at one point or another. Eventually the retail exploitation of “love” is nauseating and the splashes of red and pink is migraine-inducing. No, you don’t want to watch The Notebook with a glass of champagne this Valentine’s Day. You want to watch The Walking Dead with a shot of whiskey. Well, Valentine’s Day haters, there are love stories even for you out there. Continue reading “Boyfriends for Sale: Anti-Valentine’s Day Edition”
Skip the chocolate this Valentine’s Day and enjoy some romance novels instead. Not only will they put you in the mood for the big date with your significant other (or that night in front of the TV with all the movies Ryan Gosling has ever made), but they are also a lot of fun (and less calories). Here are some of them from AllRomance and Smashwords that you can enjoy.
Here are a few romance novels retelling fairy tales that are as old as time.
“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
― Albert Einstein
Well, if Einstein says it….
I can’t say that reading these fairytale retellings will truly make you more intelligent (maybe they will. Who knows?). But they are definitely a lot of fun. I don’t know about you, but I love a good fairytale retelling. Here are a few romance novels retelling fairy tales that are as old as time.
There’s a couple of reasons why I started doing Boyfriends for Sale posts. One reason is I like themes and sorting things into themes. Another is because there are many times I’m in the mood for certain type of romance and I want books that fix that. For instance, about two months ago I spent about an hour scouring the internet to find historical romances with a love interest who was half Native American and half Caucasian. (Don’t ask me why. If I knew how to explain every single one of my impulses, then I’d be able to rationalize myself into the minimalist, healthy person I’ve always wanted to be.)
Looking for some nice Irish romance novels? Well, here are ten of them just for you. 🙂

I love looking at hot shirtless men as much as the next girl so I found some men for $0.99 each. Fictional ones, that is.
