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 (Off-Campus #1) by Elle Kennedy
- The Score (Off-Campus #3) by Elle Kennedy

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!

Melissa at Melissa’s Book World: I love friends-to-lovers-romances so I’ve added a lot of the books in this article to my wishlist.
I’m currently reading my first Marina Zapata book, Under Locke, and Wait for it that you recommend above is on the wishlist as well.

- Another postcard by Elle Christensen
- Own the Wind by Kristen Ashley
Maureen at Maureen’s Books: I love friends-to-lovers romance stories. Hmmm… Wait for You by Jennifer Armentrout is a good one!! The Pact by Karina Halle and Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. Definitely three of my favorite books.
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.
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.
Dragonfly at Our Familiarioum: I LOVE friends-to-lovers stories so much because… my hubby and I BFF since middle school! We need to add Seven Years by Dannika Dark to your awesome list! They were also friends in highs school and seven years later BOOM!
