5 Books to Read If You Love the Neighbors to Lovers Trope

by Silvana Reyes May 12, 2022

My favorite thing about the neighbors-to-lovers trope is having the love interests interact often. Knowing the main characters may not be able to escape having contact creates a fun expectation on their interaction. But what if the main characters dislike each other? Well then we can expect friction, sexual tension (because of course!), and 100% bickering between the two. 

There are so many possibilities with this trope, for example imagine what happens when one of the main characters doesn’t have an extended family or close people to rely on but then something happens that forces them to rely on their neighbor? This trope can provide some epic swoony moments and it never disappoints! Keep reading to get 5 neighbors-to-lovers book recommendations you'll love!

Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score

Things We Never Got Over Lucy Score Neighbors to Lovers romance

If you were looking for a small-town romance that also happens to have the neighbors-to-lovers trope, this book is perfect for you. In this story, you get to meet Naomi who has arrived in Knockemout, Virginia to help out her twin sister. But when she arrives, she realizes this was an evil plan to leave her niece behind with her while her sister runs off who knows where.

The Bombshell Effect by Karla Sorensen

The Bombshell Effect Kala Sorensen Neighbors to Lovers Romance

Who doesn’t love a sports romance?The Bombshell Effect follows Allie Sutton who just inherited a football team from her late estranged father. She has a lot of conflicted emotions towards this, mainly because of her estranged dad, but also because she knows nothing about football; she’s a model/influencer who has lived for the past years in Europe.

Now, she’s back in order to manage the team as the owner, and her house just so happens to be right next door to the team’s quarterback.



Feud by Phyllis Bourne

Feud Phyllis Bourne Neighbors to lovers romance

Two neighboring families are the protagonists of this hilarious rom-com. Even though younger generations do not know how the feud first started, they know that the Lawsons are enemies to the Bridges. That’s the way the story goes and nothing can be done to remedy this. When Alex finds out her great, great-uncle left her a house, she’s ecstatic and it came at the perfect moment.

Though this cannot be said for Justice because Alex finding out about the house means he isn’t getting the money he’s supposed to be getting because of the feud. This starts a battle of pranks where both of them will try to run the other off the property so they can get the money.

by Silvana Reyes April 21, 2023

Look, sometimes you crave a fantasy book. You want action-packed scenes, high-stakes, fights, magic systems, and even talking animals. You want epic adventures that make the characters grow closer.
