There’s a (somewhat) new genre in town, which you may have heard of – New Adult. Now, I’m not going to go into the in’s and out’s of the genre or what categorizes a book as ‘new adult’. That’s been done many a time. I’m just going to touch on what I like about it and we’re going to have a giveaway, courtesy of Avon Addicts and J9. How does that sound?
I’ve dabbled a bit in the New Adult category and so far, I’m really liking the genre. And I’m anxious to read more. I like that there’s a name for the novels with protagonists that are out of high school but still in those early adult years. YA was my thing (it satisfied my inner 17-year old self) but only until NA came around. I don’t like reading sex scenes in YA (it feels dirty to me to read about under aged people getting it on) but I like smut in my romance novels. And that’s where NA comes in. Come to think of it, it’s actually been a pretty long time since I’ve read a YA novel.
The only type of NA I’ve read so far is contemporary romance. I haven’t read paranormal romance NA or any other genre of NA. (Maybe I have; I’d have to take a close look at the character’s age and see.) For me, and for the moment, I like a compelling, sort of coming-of-age NA novel. I like that self-discovery element, especially one that leads to a HEA.
So tell me, do you read NA? Which genres of NA do you read? If you haven’t read NA, does it sound like something you’d like to start reading?

The sexiest romance you’ll read this year…
One moment can change your life forever...
For Violet Lee, a chance encounter on a darkened street draws her into a world beyond her wildest imaginings, a timeless place of vast elegance and immeasurable wealth – of beautiful mansions and lavish parties – where a decadent group of friends live for pleasure alone. A place from which there is no escape...no matter how hard Violet tries.
Yet all the riches in the world can’t mask the darkness that lies beneath the gilded surface, embodied in the charismatic but dangerous Kaspar Varn.
Violet and Kaspar surrender to a passion that transcends their separate worlds – but it’s a passion that comes at a price...
