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

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?

Sneak Peek:

Eli’s eyebrows rise on his head. “How much do you know about working a barn?” 

“You remember my brother is Finn, right? Gimme that.” I step forward, grabbing the pitchfork, and fill the stall with hay. 

“Goodness, that’s hot,” Eli murmurs behind me. 

I turn to look at him over my shoulder with a wink. “You just gonna stand there and stare?” 

“I’d much rather do something else, but I won’t make my horse starve.” 

I laugh and shake my head. “You’re bad news, Hastings,” I tease.

“Oh, but it feels so good.” He presses his body to my back as a hand sneaks to my stomach, holding me in place. Eli drops a kiss on my neck, and my entire body heats in reaction.

BLURB:

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.

 

Roping Your Heart Cover Reveal!

The day is FINALLY here! I am SO darn excited to share Roping Your Heart’s cover with you!! Isn’t Axel one sexy as heck cowboy?! This best friends/roommates to lovers romance will make you swoon, laugh, and believe in love. With a dash of angst, you’ll love going on this journey with Axel and Lia.

*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?
