This summer, a new romance book is making its debut, and it might just be the perfect read for those who miss the golden age of rom-coms. The modern romantic comedy truly reached its peak during the 1990s and early 2000s; rom-coms simply haven’t been as good since then. Luckily though, romance books have made a massive comeback in the last few years, and with them, rom-coms have enjoyed a renaissance, largely thanks to streaming – though with a few surprise theatrical release hits, too.

In June 2024, the highly-anticipated romance book, The Rom-Commers, was released. Written by Katherine Center, the book follows Emma Wheeler, a young woman who has always dreamed of becoming a screenwriter. When the opportunity of a lifetime comes her way, she drops everything to spend six weeks in LA with famed screenwriter, Charlie Yates. Unfortunately, though, Charlie isn’t the man she thought he would be. Emma must fix his script and teach him a thing or two about rom-coms before her time in Los Angeles is up.
