9 Books To Read If You Like Kasie West: Part 1

Updated: Jan 21, 2023

Kasie West is one of my favorite authors. She writes contemporary clean romance novels while being baked by the California sun. Kasie lives in central California with her husband and four kids. Her first book is Pivot Point, a paranormal romance book that has a sequel, Split Second.

My favorite books by her are Maybe This Time, P.S. I Like You, On The Fence, and Love Life and the List. All of her books are awesome, but those, I think, are the best. I found out about her last year, and right away, I was hooked. All of the books that were available to me, I read in about a month.

After I read all of her books, I went looking for more books like hers. Surprisingly it was tough to find other authors who have her same style—young adult, clean romance, and a way of drawing you in! Other authors are not into writing clean books, but I finally found some books that I liked. So this is a list of all the books that I thought you should read if you liked Kasie West's books. I hope you like them!
