There is no perfect relationship. All love stories come with certain obstacles. Difficult circumstances, social rules, social distance, in the end - lovers constantly have to overcome boundaries and break conventions. Together with the Eksmo publishing house, we have chosen for you five works that inspire romantic exploits and make you believe in true love.

"KING OF GOBLINS", CARA BARBIERI

Cara Barbieri wrote her fantasy young adult dilogy while she was undergoing treatment for depression and an eating disorder. The result is an unusual story of growing up about struggling with our complexes, recognizing a traumatic experience and, of course, about love.

The second - final - book "King of the Goblins" is set in Permafrost, where seventeen-year-old Janneke was taken into slavery by the goblins. The girl in love with the goblin Soren helps him get the throne, and she herself becomes the owner of magical powers. She alone has to go on a dangerous journey through the desert lands of the kingdom. She must stop the collapse of the worlds and get the opportunity to conclude an interspecific alliance with Soren, who saved her from a monstrous captivity and, in spite of everything, fell in love.

"START FIRST", MONA KASTEN

Mona Kasten has rightly won the title of the author of romantic bestsellers. Fans from all over the world compare her books to the works of Erica James and Anna Todd. The heroine of Kasten's new novel, nineteen-year-old Ellie Harper, moves to another city away from her family and painful memories. The girl wants to start life from scratch. Goes to another college, changes her hairstyle, makes new friends. There is only one problem: finding a cozy apartment, which will not be easy on a tight budget.

Ellie is extraordinarily lucky: her new acquaintance, Kayden, needs a neighbor. Alas, the charming guy presents the tenant with three tough rules. First: no chatter about your girlish problems. Second, no comment on his free nightlife. And third: you shouldn't even think about him in a romantic way. Ellie resignedly agrees, but soon realizes how good a friend Kayden is. No one in this world, except him, will understand her pains, fears, problems so well. To break one of the rules is to lose Kayden. But what if it's worth the risk?

"CHARMING Monster", LENA SOKOL

Lena Sokol's novels are always sincere, heartfelt stories about strong feelings, which the main characters test for strength. “Charming monster”, at first glance, is a story about a good girl who falls in love with a bad boy. But this is not the case. Lena Sokol loves to play with stereotypes and invites readers to figure out for themselves who is conditionally good in the book and who is conditionally bad.

The owner of the nightclub Tim Levitsky behaves frankly rudely with the girls. He is used to using beauties for his nefarious purposes. When his charming new business partner Martha Kauffman puts Tim in his place with his nefarious courtship, the guy immediately begins to hate her.
