Call me a hopeless romantic all you want, but we romance readers just love love. We love it when it works out, we love it when it doesn’t (sometimes) and everywhere in between. And we have no shame about whipping out our sappy romance novels on the beach — because we know that summer was made for love.

More into thrillers? We've got you covered, too! But for those of you who tend to get swept off your feet with the tale of a grand gesture and for the ones who just can't seem to get enough of a classic star-crossed lovers' scenario, here are our top 17 great reads every sentimental sap (and I mean that in a good way!) will absolutely adore reading this summer.

1. Beach Town by Mary Kay Andrews

A classic story of enemies who are both too attracted to the other for their own good. Greer has finally found her perfect film location for her big-budget movie, but Mayor Eban is desperate to keep corporate hands off of his town. This novel is a perfect mix of stubborn and sexy and duh — gives off super summery vibes.
