The Ripped Bodice Summer Bingo Suggestions

Quick technical note, I've included some things that in my humble opinion are more women's fiction with strong romantic elements, but are currently being marketed as rom-coms. 
Also, there are some I currently don't have any suggestions for, so I skipped them.  I'll report back if I discover more in my reading this summer. And some of these are listed in multiple categories, if they fit. 
Second Chance: If You Love Something by Jayce Ellis
Amnesia - I know my giant list isn't only romance, but there's a lot of romance. 
Food on the cover: Donut Fall in Love by Jackie Lau, D'Vaugn and Kris Plan a Wedding by Chencia C. Higgins, Battle Royale by Lucy Parker
Bicycle: Soulstar by C. L. Polk
Superpower: Heroine Complex by Sarah Kuhn, Not Your Sidekick by CB Lee
Mistaken Identity: The Stand In by Lily Chu
Dance: Kiss and Tell by Adib Khorram, Alexis Daria's Dance Off series
Made Up Country: If HQ Presents are your jam, there are many fictional countries. 
High Tea: The Duke Heist by Erica Ridley
College dorm: She Gets the Girl by Rachel Lippincott and Alyson Derrick, Loveboat Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen, Rent a Boyfriend by Gloria Chao
Steampunk: Soulstar by C. L. Polk
Work Rivals: Today Tonight and Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon, The Mistletoe Motive by Chloe Liese, Hana Khan Carries On by Uzma Jaladdin, The Spy in 3B by Nana Malone, also many reality show romances are going to qualify here.
