Join us for the Romance Book Club! We try and read as many romance genres as we can, sharing our thoughts and expanding our romance reading experience. As long as it has a happily ever after, it’s fair game.
Typically each month we choose the book for the following month.
September Book Choice
We will be reading Deal With The Devil by Kit Rocha
Nina is an information broker with a mission—she and her team of mercenary librarians use their knowledge to save the hopeless in a crumbling America.
Knox is the bitter, battle-weary captain of the Silver Devils. His squad of supersoldiers went AWOL to avoid slaughtering innocents, and now he’s fighting to survive.
They’re on a deadly collision course, and the passion that flares between them only makes it more dangerous. They could burn down the world, destroying each other in the process… Or they could do the impossible: team up.

The book group will meet monthly via zoom to discuss books in the romance genre. Our definition of romance includes both HEA (Happily Ever After) and HFN (Happy For Now) endings. We will discuss what we read on our own, talk about forthcoming titles, and also pick books to read as a group, either voting on titles prepared by group leaders or taking turns selecting titles.
This book group will strive to be a safe and inclusive space. Racist and homophobic remarks will not be tolerated, and the group may set other content lines to be drawn in discussion or in reading material (e.g., mentions of self-harm, gore, sexual assault) in order to make the experience as fun for all participants as possible. As this is a romance book group, it should be assumed that books read and discussed will often include sex, sometimes explicit in nature.
Book group leaders will:
- Read the entire book
- Gather information to help enhance the discussion
- Be prepared to offer counter opinions – even if they differ from our own
- Be prepared to begin new lines of discussion when necessary
- Not let one person monopolize the discussion
- Be willing and prepared to take control of the group, firmly but respectfully
Book group participants will:
- Make their best effort to complete the book
- Come ready to both share and listen
- Be ready to back up opinions with the “why”
- Have a great time — if you stop enjoying it, let the leader know
