I do not simply because the cover does not feature a half dressed man with a woman hanging on him.
I don't consider a book a romance simply because it has romantic elements; most books do. A romance needs to focus on the love story and (usually) needs to have a happily-ever-after ending.

Exactly, it focusses on the journey of the couple's happily ever after or happy for now.

Romance can be historical, modern, SciFi, paranormal, mystery, thriller...etc Romance has many mini genres under it but two things are needed for it to be a romance. One, a focus on the couple's journey and two, that's it's a happy ending.
