Here’s a sneak peak at some of W by Wattpad Books upcoming 2024 Releases:

Faking It by Beth Reekles (OSD 1/16):
From the NYT bestselling author of The Kissing Booth and Lockdown on London Lane comes a delightful rom-com about singleton Sophie, who decides that a fake boyfriend is better than no boyfriend at all – or is it? Beth is a master of the genre!
Lifelong singleton Sophie is facing a year of events celebrating her friends and family settling down: bachelorette and engagement parties, weddings, and baby showers. And despite a string of failed dates behind her–everything from “it‘s not you, it’s me” to only seeing each other when it suits him to total ghosting–she just can’t seem to stay away from dating apps and hopes to find love just like everyone else. But when she lies about having a plus-one for her sister’s wedding, Sophie’s only solution is to enlist a fake boyfriend. Enter the sexy and charming Harry. He agrees to help her save face in front of her family, if she’ll help him look good to his friends after the recent implosion of his marriage.

Their chemistry is undeniable, but even if Sophie has sparks with Harry, they’re both just using their fake relationship to hide from their own problems. Can she continue lying to her family and friends? And how will everyone react when they see themselves reflected in her column? Soul-searching comes with consequences, and there might not be a picture-perfect “happily ever after,” but maybe there’s something even better.

Meant for Me by Tay Marley (OSD 2/13):
A page-turning emotional drama for fans of Colleen Hoover, where a young woman running from grief uncovers a fresh start, a new romance, and a piece of her own past in small-town Texas. One of those novels that will break your heart – in the best way.

Reeling from the sudden loss of her older sister―her only family―Addie May flees Los Angeles without a plan or a destination, and ends up in Georgetown, Texas. Lost and alone, she’s taken in by some kind local ranchers, and there she meets farm hand Zac Ryan, who starts to cut through the grief and pain and show Addie that she has something to live for.

But the small town holds more than just a fresh start for Addie. Fate has brought her face-to-face with a piece of her past, and she can no longer ignore the parts of herself she thought she’d left behind. Without knowing what’s on the horizon, Addie must find the strength to move towards her dreams. Because healing happens when you let love in, and life happens when you start living it.


Chloe Baker’s Lost Date
by Katie Wicks (OSD 5/7):
For fans of Book Lovers and Serendipity comes a contemporary rom-com about a woman whose blind date ends up not being who she thinks he is. Fun, surprising, and sexy!

Chloe Baker has a brand new life in New York City with a great job but zero dating life. When she agrees to go on a blind date, she’s nervous but excited. But then, Jack is late. Ten minutes. Twenty. Thirty. Just when she’s given up all hope, he shows up–and they spend a magical day together. An afternoon at the Met. A walk in Central Park. One amazing kiss. The perfect date.

Chloe’s on cloud nine, and she can’t wait to see Jack again. But when she texts to say thanks for the great date, she doesn’t get the reply she’s expecting. Suddenly, Jack’s unfindable. And Chloe will go to any lengths to figure out what happened–because true love is worth blowing up your life for . . . or is it?

Sand, Sequins & Silicone by Pia Mia (OSD 5/14):
Actor/musician Pia Mia’s debut novel – a semi-autobiographical account of a young pop star on the rise and looking for love in LA. A juicy, perfect-for-the-beach read!

Born on an island six thousand miles away, I’m now twenty-three and living my dream as a recording artist surrounded by the sun, sea, and celebrities of shiny Los Angeles. Sand in my toes, wind in my hair, and my friends by my side… What more could I ask for?

My new album has just been released and I am on top of the world. Everyone wants a piece of me. Party invites with the paparazzi chasing me to capture my every move. I am wearing the latest in fashion, my songs are moving to the top of the charts. I’m shining. I’m glowing. I’m loving every moment.

Hollywood isn’t what I thought it would be. People aren’t who I thought they would be. Hollywood isn’t perfection: it’s lies and loneliness hiding behind smiles and laughter. When the doors close and the lights dim, everything and everyone is fake. I don’t know who I can trust, and I don’t know what to believe. Sometimes, I don’t even know who I am anymore.

I came here to make something of myself, to climb the highest mountain of fame possible, to find real love . . . but at what cost?

Life is all about balance and with the darkness comes light. I have my family and best girlfriends to keep me grounded, and a certain blue-eyed man I can’t seem to get off my mind, my life is starting to look like a California dream. Things are heating up around here, and for the first time in my life, I’m the one with the power. Or am I?

Bound to the Shadow Prince by Ruby Dixon (OSD 7/2):
A standalone romantasy from the NYT bestselling author of Ice Planet Barbarians, in which, to protect her kingdom, a princess is forced to live in a tower with a winged, fanged enemy warrior as her only company. Super sexy and sure to be a HIT on BookTok!

In order to protect her kingdom from the wrath of a vengeful goddess, Princess Candra must remain locked inside a tower for seven years. Seven long years without a friend―or a lover―by her side. And shut inside the tower with her? A Fellian, the enemy of her people, a fearsome warrior race complete with wings and claws and fangs. Nemeth is terrifying, cruel, and disturbingly magnetic. Candra should kill him for his supplies, but she’s desperate for his company…and his touch.

As time inside the unchanging tower rolls on, Candra uncovers the man behind the stony facade. And when their tenure hits an unexpected snag, Candra and Nemeth are forced to make a difficult choice. They’ll need to face an outside world they no longer recognize, one that threatens their lives and their surprising love.

    The books all sound like they’d be fun to read. I’m quite interested in Faking It and Bound to the Shadow Prince.

  2. Latesha B.

    I would be interested in reading all of them but Bound to the Shadow Prince and Meant for Me really grabbed my attention because they sound like second chance stories and the main characters have to figure out who they are so they can be their best selves.

  3. erahime

    All the books have their interesting points, but the Ruby Dixon book sounds like a romantasy that intrigued me with its premise and Rapunzel-ish theme.

  4. Audrey Stewart

    Meant For Me Addie May and Zac I enjoy
    Small town settings this story has the added plus of a ranch in Texas with cowboys. Sounds like a tear jerker I want to see how she handles her grief and moves on in a relationship with ZacIt also has the mystery from her past to deal with.
