Today I’m sharing my favorite grumpy sunshine romance book recommendations. Grumpy Sunshine is a trope that’s like the odd couple. One of the main characters is a grump and the other is a happy go lucky type.
As with all of my recommendations these books contain graphic sexual scenes. Some of them may contain additional triggers so please check trigger warnings at the beginning of the book.
