A couple of months ago, we brought you our favorite indie/self-published book series. Even though they may have been published years ago, these are the stories we read over and over, salivating over the hot guys and the spunky girls they fall in love with. But there are more self-pubbed books that we can’t help but pore over into the late hours of the night. By popular demand, here are three more indie series that we still can’t get enough of:
The Storm Series by Samantha Towle
There’s something addicting about fame-romances, where the couple is fighting their attraction while also in the public eye. In this case, Tru is a journalist who’s assigned to do a story on successful rock star Jake. But it turns out that the two are childhood friends who have never forgotten each other. The only complication? Tru’s boyfriend back home, Will. Of course she falls for Jake again, and the two have a very heated, very sexy time together on the road. Subsequent novels deal with their life in the spotlight, and Jake’s other band members. If you like hot sex scenes and fated-to-be-together couples (and who doesn’t?) then The Storm series is for you.
The Redhead Series by Alice Clayton
Oh, how I love Grace and her 24-year-old boy-toy Jack. This is another typical movie star romance, though this time there’s a twist: yes, Jack is crazy popular, but Grace is no small town girl. She’s also an actress, though she’s been out of the Hollywood game for 10 years, she’s curvier than ever before, and she’s gotten pretty goddamned sassy. Jack is just a fun fling that she won’t let get in the way of her future plans — until suddenly he’s not. In this three-book series, Grace has to deal with the realities of fame, falling in love with a younger man and exactly what it means to chase your dreams. Get ready for some quick banter and lots and lots of sexy sex scenes.
The Thoughtless Series by S.C. Stephens
This is not your typical boy-meets-girl-romance. Thoughtless deals with some pretty tough themes, specifically what cheating does to your mental health. Kiera has been in love with Denny for two years, until she meets his best friend Kellan. As Keira finds herself drawn to the local rock star, she has to face some hard truths about her relationship with Denny. While most love triangles are pretty cut and dry, this one is exceedingly complicated—Denny and Kellan are as close as brothers, and Denny is a great guy (and arguably better for Keira). The follow-up novels address the consequences of Keira’s decisions: how do you establish trust in a relationship that started with lies? S.C. Stephens never shies away from the tough questions and all the books in this series are impossible to put down.
