New Adult Romance Novels
New adult romance is a rising genre, and we're lucky to have it! If you aren't familiar with new adult fiction, that's okay! Well-storied describes new adult as "books are obviously written with new adults in mind, specifically readers that fall between the ages of 18 and 25, though some consider the market to range as far as age 30."
Before new adult fiction hit its stride, there wasn't a lot of fiction for readers between new adult and adult-aged books. Folks who have recently graduated high school and have been thrust into adulthood and are still finding their footing have very different experiences than those still in high school and those with established careers and/or families.
