While most disability representation in romance is restricted to the historical genre, there has been a push in recent years for representation in contemporary romance. With the success of Helen Hoang’s 2018 debut The Kiss Quotient, many authors have followed Hoang’s lead and written books with disability representation, including neurodiversity, chronic illnesses, hearing disabilities, and physical disabilities. Enjoy the series listed below to broaden your romantic horizons.
In this fabulous and fun trilogy, three sisters with various interests and abilities find true love in the most unexpected of places. Each sister’s journey to love follows a new trope, including enemies-to-lovers, coworkers romance, and fake relationships. Hibbert writes the most endearing male leads- you’ll end each novel with a new book boyfriend!
