What to Read If You Love Friend to Lovers Romance

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.

MoU ebook

 

Memories of us is a sweet love story. This second chance romance will be the perfect book to get lost in.

Five years later, they’re reunited. But will the past have ruined their chances at reconciliation?

PS: Hunter is a sexy, country music songwriter who is loyal, through and through.

A sexy and funny friends-to-lovers romance book

Twisted in You is my favorite. This is an inspiring and raw story, not for the faint of heart.

Mikayla has had a traumatic upbringing that leads her to a recovery center where she can begin to heal. Tyler is a famous country rock star whose drinking leads him back at the recover center.

An unlikely friendship is exactly what they each need to heal the past.

Tyler is protective of Mikayla, and although he’s starting to have feelings, he’s sure she’s nowhere near ready for a relationship. But when the past threatens more than their relationship, will they survive it?

Escape into a good book

Times are hard. The world feels like we’re living out a Sci-Fi movie (I can’t be the only one that thinks this, right?), and it’s easy to get wrapped up in the fear of all this. While I haven’t had much luck focusing on work, I’ve been reading. It’s helped me escape into another world where my imagination can run wild. I hope to do the same to readers who read my books—provide a safe place you want to escape to for a little while, complete with laughs, heartfelt moments, and happily ever afters.

It’s true, we can’t run from reality, but we can enjoy the perks of our imagination for some time, and reading is the best way for me to do that, personally.

I’ve been hard on myself

I’ve been hard on myself. I’ve been telling others and myself that this is a time to be patient with ourselves, show compassion, and practice love. And I have more so than in the past, but some days it’s more difficult. I’ve been saying it’s time to just be, reflect, journal, sing, dance, meditate, bake, cook. Do anything that you don’t allow yourself to do when we’re “too busy”.

But this week was hard. Having a release during a global pandemic is more stressful than on any other given day when the world is functioning “normally”. Yesterday, I was allowing the weight and uncertainty to take over. I was wallowing. I felt vulnerable. (I hate admitting this). But then I realized, I’m not alone. We’re all going through shifts and changes as we speak. That sense of community, even if silent solidarity, gave me the push I needed.

I woke up refreshed, positive, trusting this journey I’m on. It’s all we can do. This moment isn’t about controlling outcomes or situations (if we ever truly are in control), but simply being, living, breathing.

I share this so you know we’re in this together. We’re all united in this, and I’m here to tell you I get how it feels to feel lost. I’ve been there. Often. I’m also here to tell you this is temporary. We’re allowed to feel what we do, yet we have the power to overcome it. Even when it seems impossible. We’re strong and we have each other for support. If you ever want to chat, shoot me an e-mail. I believe now more than ever we need to come together and lift each other.

“This too shall pass.”

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve had a fifteen-year-plan since high school—get a degree in hospitality, learn the ropes working for a big hotel, before opening my own bed and breakfast. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eli Hastings isn’t part of that plan. The sexy-as-sin contractor I hired to renovate my bed and breakfast is the kind of man I’ve learned to stay away from. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can’t stand him most of the time, especially when he’s interfering in my dreams like a know-it-all. That doesn’t mean I don’t imagine what it would feel like to have him pressed against me, but those fantasies are my best kept secret. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I try to hate him, but one kiss is enough to give in to my desires. Eli challenges me to live outside of my box, until one major deviation in my plan is too big to ignore. I refuse for anything to stand in the way of my dream, even if it causes me to break my own heart.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Cornering the stranger at the grocery store to be my fake boyfriend isn’t the best idea I’ve had… Or is it?

Fake relationship

Sexy southern gentleman 

Slow burn goodness

Small town gossip

Flirty banter

BLURB:

I’ve gotten into my fair share of awkward situations… Although, asking a random stranger to be my fake boyfriend is by far the worst.

In my defense, it was an act of desperation. An act that I hope will keep away the men in town who see me as their ticket to becoming the mayor’s son-in-law.

But I have a plan.

1. Date my fake boyfriend long enough for the news to spread across town.

2. Have a very public breakup that leaves me too heartbroken to move on.

3. Continue living my happily single life.

There’s only one problem… Harris wasn’t supposed to be the kind of man I’ve always wanted.

There’s no denying the sparks that fly between us. Just when I’m about to give him my heart, he does the one thing I can’t forgive.

Our breakup is public all right, and the heartbreak is real.

*Releasing to KU

BLURB: 

Lia Montgomery has been my best friend since we were kids, but when she moves back to our hometown, we can’t ignore the chemistry between us. And I’ve come up with a plan to make her mine.

First on the list? Make her my roommate.  

It seems like a great idea at the time, but one look at her in those little pajama shorts and a thin tee shirt, and all I want to do is throw her over my shoulder, caveman style. 

Screw the plan. 

A simple dare changes everything between us. But when I’m challenged to do the one thing that could tear us apart forever, I realize there’s more at risk than just my heart.

EXCERPT:

Surrounded by nature, hearing the horses whinny, everything is in perfect balance. Things are going to be okay. Like any new situation, it takes some time to adjust, even if Axel and I have always understood each other, it’s something new. 

“Here you go.” Axel hands me a glass of wine and sits next to me, a beer bottle in his hand. 

“Thanks.” I take a sip, and he clears his throat loudly. “Sorry,” I smirk and shrug. We toast, and then I take a drink of the red wine as the breeze begins to cool down. 

“I know things got a little weird earlier, but I didn’t want you to feel uncomfortable,” Axel begins speaking, staring straight ahead. Unsure of what to say, I nod. If I deny it, he’ll know I’m lying. If I’m honest, there’s no turning back. I choose silence at the moment, drink more wine, and stare at the mountains. 

After a few minutes, I’ve organized my thoughts. “I wasn’t uncomfortable, but this is new territory.” It’s vague, but it isn’t a lie.

“For me, too.” He finally turns his head to catch my eyes. They’re soft and peaceful as I take in the swirl of colors, combination of amber and brown. 

We may be pretending this is a platonic living situation, but we both know there’s something deeper in the foundation of this agreement. A hope that’s blossoming. Then, why aren’t either of us confident enough to take the next step?

BLURB:

What’s a girl to do after burning all of her no-good, cheating boyfriend’s belongings? Throw a dart at a map and start over in a new town.

I may be new to the small town of Everton, but I’m well aware that I now share a zip code with a celebrity. You’d have to be living under a rock to not know, Knox Bentley, one of country music’s biggest stars. 

When Knox wanders into my bar— careful brown eyes and broody attitude—I can’t tear my gaze away. A cheating scandal fresh on his heels is just one reason I should stay far, far away, but the closer we get, the more I realize he’s not at all what I imagined.

But being a famous musician comes with unwanted attention…the kind that tears people apart, and now it’s becoming too painful to stay by his side.

They say love is a choice, but so is leaving…

Check out the prologue below!

Prologue

Knox

The flashing car lights I’m anxious to leave behind are a blur as I speed down the highway. I can’t drive fast enough to escape my past. I scrub a hand down my face, the other tightening around the steering wheel as my knuckles whiten. 

The radio is silent. I don’t want a reminder of the one thing that stole everything from me. The swooshing of the other cars I race past is enough music for my ears. The pelting rain on my car adds the only drumming I need right now. 

An angry breath moves through me, and I blow out air from my lips. All I can think about is her. Her and the pain in her eyes that mirrored the same pain I put there four years ago. 

It’s done. 

It was done a long time ago, and I’m the only one to blame. 

I squeeze my eyes shut despite my flying speed. I’ve lost control of everything in my life. Little by little, I gave a piece of my life to a dream I thought would offer everything I ever needed. 

Instead, it destroyed me. It destroyed my passion. And now, the media is having a ball with it all, blowing it all up, making mountains out of invisible grains of sand. Enough to hurt both her and me. 

I was naïve, and she was strong. 

I flick the turn signal and take the exit, the shrilling sound of an incoming call interrupting my thoughts. 

“What?” I bark out. 

“Where are you?” My friend and manager, Harris, asks. 

“You know where.” I go to hang up, but his voice comes through. 

“Don’t do it,” he demands. 

“You can’t tell me what to do anymore.”

“Knox, we’ll get through this. We’ll get a new label. Hell, you’re famous enough you can create your own label and release whatever you want,” he tries to convince me. This is about more than my music. This is about something bigger than a label, it’s about a culture. 

“I’m done, Harris.”

“When will you be back?” His voice rings with resignation. 

“I don’t know.” I hang up and pull into the airport. 

Grabbing my suitcase, I stalk through the doors, cap low on my face and head bowed. I go through security, never glancing back at the city I’m leaving behind.
