Read It: Romantic Duet Novels

tamara ireland stoneSometimes it would be amazing to know what someone else is thinking, right? Does he/she feel the same way? What happened between us? These three sets of companion novels, all excellent, give us both sides of some pretty intense relationships. You'll want to read them two at a time.  Time Between Us & Time After Time, by Tamara Ireland Stone (pictured). Anna's from 1995 Chicago and Bennett is a time-traveler from 2012 San Francisco -- talk about communication issues. Watching them fall in love and try to stay together through time puts any of your own "long-distance" issues in perspective. But don't take our word for it. Hear readers rave.

 Just One Day & Just One Year, by Gayle Forman. This romantic duet will make you want to travel and lose your heart in an adventure far, far away. Like Forman's other lovely duo, it's so full of truth that it will also make you cry, so have tissues on hand.

 Jumping Off Swings & Living With Jackie Chan by Jo Knowles. Hear from characters on both sides of an accidental pregnancy who have to deal with fallout of the decisions made. Knowles paints a full, rich picture of lives interrupted, broken and made whole again.
