What is ‘New Adult Romance’?

New Adult is a genre of fiction that features characters commonly between 18 and 25 years old. Often set in college or the early post-grad years, New Adult novels focus on independence and new experiences, as the protagonists tackle their first time living away from home, beginning a career, or falling in love.

Like adult contemporary romance, new adult novels usually center around a passionate love story. These romances can be edgier and darker than those seen in contemporary romance or young adult fiction, as new adult fiction is still developing and pushing boundaries.
