    Yesss I loved The Lovebirds! Everything about that movie was so fresh and interesting to me because it’s a romcom/action film with a black female lead?? And a Pakistani-American lead/love interest just wow 🧁

    I loved Kristina Forest’s debut, I need to read the new one!

    I was just think about this topic recently. I don’t have a problem with IR romance in books on an individual basis but I get annoyed that IR gets more marketing hype. Non-biracial Black heroes are especially nonexistent in traditionally published romance.

    I’m so glad you did this video. I find it so hard to find Black love books. All of the popular ones are interracial. I enjoy that the books show that Black Women are desirable to all men, but I need some Black love too.

    Hi 😊 I enjoyed this video. I totally agree that some "black romance" books are with white love interests. I went on one author's website because I was curious and MOST of her books were with white love interests. By the way, I totally have a sweet tooth too! 🧁😋

    Love this look! It's hilarious to me that people think interracial relationships only happen with white and POC, as if any other don't exist or Black love doesn't exist. It's great publishing is realizing these relationships happen finally but we have known and now it feel so oversaturated. For All Time, Finding Joy sounds interesting, and so does Love is a Revolution. Glad you enjoyed Now That I've Found You! The Henna Wars deals with two girls who aren't white either, I know I've mentioned it to you so many times but I really loved it and the author is so sweet and she has another book coming out this year I think that has another f/f romance and they aren't white either. I really love your viewpoints.🧁🧁

    Such a great video! When I read Legendborn this was something that really stood out to me, I really wanted to see more people of color being in love in all kinds of books. As you said, it's not that white love interests are wrong, but they are just everywhere. xD

    I feel you on this on SO MANY LEVELS. Fam I have nothing against interracial relationship but where are my black men.

    I feel your pain. If I see one more celebrated "Black Romance" with a Black woman and white man I will spit. But those are IR romances (which act like non-White people can't be in IR romances with each other). It feels like a fetish to me if Black writers only write IR romances with white men hooked up with Black women. Black women indie writers are bringing the Black romances I like. Here's an article about it from Shondaland (ironically): https://www.shondaland.com/inspire/books/a34047527/indie-romance-is-big-business-why-arent-we-hearing-about-it/

    my only problem with talia hibbert. I love her because she lets black women be loved and cared for even if they may be deemed "difficult", but enough white men.
