The Thursday Three: Fish Out of Water Romance

The Thursday Three

I have “fish out of water” romances on the brain since I’m currently reading — and loving — one. My current read (It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey, in case you’re curious) isn’t one of my picks for this week’s The Thursday Three, but only because I haven’t finished it yet. Plus there are A TON of great backlist books with that trope and I wanted to talk about a few of them instead. Pilots and princes and pirates, oh my!

Fish out of water is a trope I love, but don’t read nearly often enough. Whenever I do, I crave more. I love seeing characters put into new and different situations outside of their usual experience. In a lot of cases, this new experience leads to character growth. Since I’m all about the characters when I read, this is especially enjoyable to me.

The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker

Goodreads | Amazon | My Review

K.A. Tucker is one of my auto-buy authors. I can always count on her to make me feel all the feels. 

✔️ Lifestyle blogger heroine in the Alaskan wild
✔️ Surly pilot hero
✔️ Estranged father

If you love this book as much as I did, you’ll want more of Calla and Jonah in Wild at Heart and Forever Wild.

A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole

✔️ Betrothal and mistaken identity

Well Met by Jen DeLuca

Renaissance faire romance? Heck yes. Jen DeLuca’s books are fun, sexy and swoony.

✔️ Summer at a small town Renaissance faire
✔️ Enemies to lovers between a pirate and tavern wench
✔️ Slow burn swoons with feels for days
