Friends to lovers romance is one of my absolute favorite tropes! I won’t hesitate to read a book if it’s friends to lovers. There’s something about the building tension, watching the characters move their relationship from friends to lovers as they figure out what they’re feeling and questioning if it’s worth the risk of their friendship. HINT: It always is.
I am all for strong foundations in relationships, and I feel like having a friendship established helps create that foundation in a new relationship.
It’s not only my favorite trope to read but also to write. If you like to read friends-to-lovers romance books like me, then you’ll love the following books on this list. I hope you enjoy them! I’d love to hear your thoughts after you read them!
Bonus, they’re available in Kindle Unlimited for those of you who read through the subscription.
