Do You Love Enemies to Lovers Romances? Check Out These Books!

by Silvana Reyes July 19, 2022

Enemies-to-lovers is one of the most popular tropes in romance and for good reason!

Watching sparks fly between two people who don’t make sense on paper and are actively hostile toward each other all the while trying to fight their growing  attraction makes for a swoonworthy page-turner. 

I love this trope immensely and all it's variations, like the classic version where two people from rival families fall for each other (hello, Romeo and Juliette!). Or when one of the main characters begins to see them in a new light. Yet another version of the enemies-to-lovers trope when of the love interests has wronged the other years ago and wants to make amends, so they will grovel and beg for forgiveness. The enemies-to-lovers trope makes for a fun read and can show you a range of different romances.

 

Smash Into You by AshleyNicole

Smash Into You by AshleyNicole

Before you start readingSmash Into You, you should definitely read the prequel novella,On Sight. It’s a very short read; you’ll finish it in less than 30-40 minutes! But I think it’s important to the story because you get a little bit of why these two dislike each other so much.

Rook and Zenaida were childhood nemesis, and now that they are all grown up, they continue to hate each other. But after an eventful Christmas, Rook and Zenaida can’t help themselves but come back for more.

 

 

King of Battle and Blood by Scarlett St. Clair

King of Battle and Blood by Scarlett St. Clair

If you want to read a fantasy romance book, let it be this one.King of Battle and Blood is the start of a new series,Adrian X Isolde, where you’ll get to fall in love with a vampire king and his wife of convenience. 

Isolde is a human princess. When the Blood King arrives in her kingdom she agrees to marry him in order to save it. Her whole life completely changes after that; the chemistry between her and Adrian is palpable and she can’t stop thinking about him. This book is so steamy, that you’ll blush in every chapter. But you’ll also swoon hard for those epic moments between them.

 

 

 

The Mistletoe Motive by Chloe Liese

The Mistletoe Motive by Chloe Liese

Chloe Liese is one of my favorite authors. When I heard she was writing a holiday romance set at a bookstore, I was all in since day one.The Mistletoe Motive follows Gabby and Jonathan who have to compete for a job position after their boss tells them one of them will be fired after the holidays end. Gabby herself comes up with the brilliant idea of a competition between them: the one who sells the most books gets to keep their job. 

Gabby and Jonathan have a very complicated relationship. Gabby thinks he loathes her and because of this, she also disliked him immensely. They can’t be in the same room without arguing. But what Gabby doesn’t know is that Jonathan has been crushing on her for years!

 

The Bastard’s Betrayal by Katee Robert

The Bastards Betrayal by Katee Robert

One sub-genre you can definitely find lots of amazing enemies-to-lovers romances is mafia books. You know that they always are from enemy mafia families and somehow they fall in love. It’s intense, forbidden, and so very fun to see them beat all the odds to be together. One author I love to read is Katee Robert and she has a lot of mafia books, but one of her most recent ones,The Bastard’s Betrayal, is a must-read if you love this trope.

In this novel, Rose Romanov is ready to tell her boyfriend she loves him. But a few hours earlier, her parents tell her that the man who is supposed to be her boyfriend is not really the man he says he is. His name is not Jackson, but rather, he is Dante Verducci, her enemy. Hurt and betrayed, Rose goes to Dante and shoots him, not once, but TWICE. This is the beginning of their all-consuming romance.

 

The League of Gentlewomen Witches by India Holton

The League of Gentlewomen Witches by India Holton

India Holton writes wonderful, hilarious romantic comedies. But with a twist. You see, her books are historical, fantasy romances. The dialogue between all the characters and the situations they get into is for sure going to bring a smile to your face. Most definitely will bring laughter to your life. 

The League of Gentlewomen Witches is the second book in her Dangerous Damsels series (can be read as a standalone). Charlotte is the future leader of the League of Gentlewomen Witches, so when a long-lost amulet is discovered, she quickly embarks on a journey to retrieve it. She also doesn’t want it to fall into the wrong hands. Like Alex O’Riley’s hands, for example.

Sports romance books
Fall in Love With 5 Fascinating Sports Romance Books

by Silvana Reyes January 16, 2023

It’s fascinating and entertaining to read a sports romance because you not only get to follow the romance plot, but also the sport itself. Personally, I do love it whenever the characters are playing their sport and as a reader, you get to experience it with them. The highs and lows! Don’t you love when the character who does the sport loses and the other one takes care of them and is there for them in the sad moments in their life? It makes me swoon so much.

Grumpy/Sunshine Romance
The 6 Best Grumpy Girls in Romance Books

by Silvana Reyes January 13, 2023

Even though sunshine girls are written in romance books every single time, let’s not forget about the grumpy girls. The girls who answer in monosyllabic words, grunts, or not at all. The girls who have a hard shell but a soft inside. The girls who are scared to let their walls down and protect themselves in their own way. Grumpy girls are my heart and soul, so I decided to mention a few that have stuck with me even after finishing reading their books.

The Best Slow-Burn Romance Books Waiting For You

by Silvana Reyes January 07, 2023

When we’re talking about romance books, sometimes we can have either a slow-burn romance or an instant-love one. But personally, I feel like we can also find the slow burn aspect in instant-love romances. For example, we can have a book with two characters who get it on early in the novel, but in terms of their romantic feelings for each other, they are not yet there. I call that an emotional slow burn because we do have them interacting a lot in these swoony moments, but they are not yet there in the “I fell in love with them” part of the story. The most common way you’ll see a slow-burn romance book is, probably, when two people take most of the book to finally be together.
