Families in Sweet Romance by Merri Maywether

Graduation season is approaching, and that means family will gather. I’ve found the build-up to these events can be stressful.

Once or twice, I’ve considered the urge to escape to a quiet mountain retreat, away from the wonderful chaos of family. There’s the cousin who retells the same story.  Or the niece that is in their fifteenth year of “the adults in the family are lame” phase.

Then, the day is saved by the aunt who is immune to it all. With spoon microphone in hand, she’ll boldly sing “We are family,” and somehow convince the aforementioned judgemental niece to sing backup.  

This contrast of moments are what make these gatherings memorable. 

In the sweet romance stories I love to share with you, these delightful family quirks aren’t just for laughs; they’re the threads that weave our characters’ worlds together. 

I had a lot of fun with this in my new release, One Fake Boyfriend

Sierra’s family is messy and fun and at the end of the day they know they love each other. 

Family antics offer a treasure trove of emotions, pushing our protagonists toward self-discovery and sometimes pulling them back from the brink of disaster. 

They turn a simple story into a tapestry of growth, love, and laughter. And let’s not forget the unexpected plot twists! 

There are a couple of those in Sierra and Levi’s story too. 

Families in our favorite romances teach us about the messy, glorious spectrum of life and love. They remind us that no matter how appealing solitude might sound, it's the uproarious family dinners, filled with laughter and maybe a few tears, that truly make our hearts full.

As we turn the pages of sweet romance stories, we fall in love with our bookish families, knowing that in the end, everything will work out. This is one of the many reasons why writing and reading sweet romance stories is so much fun.  


In the world of Sierra Mitchell, steering clear of Levi has always been a given, until a pretend romance flips her assumptions upside down, revealing a journey of unexpected love and second chances in the picturesque Paradise Hills.

One Fake Boyfriend has:

❤️ fake boyfriend 

❤️ brother's best friend

Fans of Hallmark Channel sweetness and binge-reading plot twists of a Netflix romance will love this "what they wanted was in front of them the whole time" romance.
