5 Tearjerker Contemporary Romance RH Book Recommendations

Last updated on November 7, 2020

There’s something so cleansing about a good cry. When I realized there were so many good tearjerker reverse harem books I could point to, I knew I had to break it up into two collections. If you’re looking for tearjerkers with fantasy, scifi, paranormal, steampunk, or historical romance, check out the tearjerker paranormal/fantasy romance collection. The collection below is for contemporary RH. 

Note: Please pay close attention to the trigger warnings below as well as in their blurbs before deciding whether to pick these up. All of these books, like everything on this site, are recommended only for those age 18+

Don’t forget to join the Why Choose? Romance Club Facebook group to hang out with other RH readers. You’ll want someone’s shoulder to cry on after reading these!

Must-Read Tearjerker RH Book Recommendations

Romance Books Available in Kindle Unlimited

The first few books below were all in KU last I checked. If you don’t have Kindle Unlimited, sign up now and save!

Surviving Amber Springs
by Siobhan Davis


This is one of those rare standalone books! It’s also new adult / YA ish with some heavy topics. 
Trigger warnings: rape, suicide, gun violence, school shootings, etc.
Their Sinner
by Serena Akeroyd


This is a dark enemies to lovers motorcycle club romance duet (two book series). Some heavy topics of a sensitive nature.
In this Moment
by Candice Wright


Cars and rich guys! Note that this book is written with British English. FMC finds out that her fiance is cheating on her during her bachelorette night (hen party). Luckily she soon gets the attention of London’s hottest bachelors and fun sexy times proceed from there. Can be read as a standalone, though this is technically book 3 in this series of standalones.
Trigger warning: cheating and sensitive issues that some readers might find upsetting per the author

Must-Buy Tearjerker RH Books

These books aren’t in KU, but they’re worth the buy!

A Baby for the Bratva
by Chloe Kent


This is a dark mafia romance with power exchange, humiliation, punishments, medical play, non-con but still an HEA. The Bratva (Russian mafia) need an heir ASAP, and our female main character is the one they’ve chosen. 
Trigger warnings: Non-consensual/coerced sexual situations
Mia’s Men
by Lucy Felthouse


Complete 4-book series!
I love the concept: Daddy left her a fortune in his will, but she only gets it if she gets married. Unfortunately, she likes more than one guy (of course!) and normally, why choose, right? But in her case, it’s a tough decision. MF, MFM, spanking.
Trigger warnings: death of parents, cancer
