Friends to Lovers Romance

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to the new Recommend Me Books. Thank you for sharing your awesome recommendations in the previous posts. Check out the previous posts if you haven’t yet.

I am SO grateful and cannot thank you all enough. Anyway, friends-to-lovers romance is one of my favorite tropes. It’s never failed to make me happy. I love the drama when they try to hide and fight the feelings. I’ve read many but only a few that stand out which I list below:

Wait For It by Mariana Zapata Most Valuable Playboy by Lauren Blakely The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely The Deal by Elle Kennedy The Score by Elle Kennedy

Now, I’m curious. What are your favorite friends-to-lovers romance reads? 

Renee at Addicted To Romance: Oh Friends To Lovers is one of my favorite tropes to read as well!! Because lovers should be the best of friends right? Well here is my list here.

The Deal by Elle Kennedy Wicked Delights of a Bridal Bed by Tracy Anne Warren Wait For You by J. Lynn The Ugly Duchess by Eloisa James The Seduction of Elliot McBride by Jennifer Ashley The Duke and I by Julia Quinn Own The Wind by Kristen Ashley Price Of A Kiss by Linda Kage Rock Redemption by Nalini Singh Seduce Me At Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas Sweet Lullaby by Lorraine Heath Mine To Possess by Nalini Singh Managed by Kristen Callihan I Loved A Rogue by Katharine Ashe Bed Of Roses by Nora Roberts Austin by Linda Lael Miller Appealed by Emma Chase

The Bookworm: I like the friends to lovers trope, and I think the only one I’ve ever read was Emma by Jane Austen. I did just read The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick and there is a friends-to-lovers thing going on there too, but it’s not the main premise of the book, although it is really prevalent in the film version.

Di at Book Reviews By Di: I’d put Hunger Games in this category as well as Ever The Hunted (Erin Summerill), Harry Potter (specifically Deathly Hallows) and The Grisha Trilogy. Ohh! I forgot to add The Immortals series by Tamora Pierce!

 Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins Ever The Hunted by Erin Summerill Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

Still, love these posts, Geybie! Great job. 😉

Kozbisa at We Live and Breath Books: I enjoyed a ton of these, but one that popped right into my head was Blurred Lines by Lauren Layne. So fun, such an awesome friendship, and I loved it so much.

Sophie at Beware Of The Reader: I love The Boy Who Sneaks in my Window Bedroom by Krysti Moseley, Geybie . Fantastic post by the way as it’s one trope that I love!

The Boy Who Sneaks in my Window Bedroom by Kirsty Moseley

Laurie at Bay State Readers Advisory: I never thought about it as a trope, but now that I have, I can say it’s one of my favorite types of romance, too, but I can’t think of the names of any actual romances with it right now. The novel The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak isn’t a romance, but it uses that trope.

Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer: Friends to Lovers is a fun trope. I read a good one recently, Keeping It Hot By Sydney Landon.
