The Best Grovel Scenes in Romance Books

by Silvana Reyes August 08, 2022

Reading angsty romance books makes me happy. Mainly because it means the love interests will have to work extra hard to get to their happily ever after, but also because most of the time one of them messed up really bad and they have to GROVEL for forgiveness in order to be happy forever with their love interest. There’s just something about a good grovel scene that makes a book ten times better!

There's nothing more delicious than a groveling scene so good it gives you  goosebumps and today I’m going to list romance books that feature amazing grovel scenes. 

I’m not going to describe the grovel scene or give away any spoilers because I truly believe in experiencing that for the first time for yourself but be certain that every book on this list has an epic grovel scene.

Twisted Love by Ana Huang

Twisted Love by Ana Huang

Huang starts her Twisted series withTwisted Love. This book follows Ava and Alex and their forbidden romance. Ava’s brother is about to leave for South America for work and he has asked Alex, his best friend, for a favor: keep an eye out for his little sister, Ava.

What started as just a favor to his friend soon turns into a romance between him and Ava, but each of them has secrets that they rather not revealed and they might be the ones to keep them from reaching their happily ever after. Think of this series as a light dark romance series!


The Tyrant Alpha’s Rejected Mate by Cate C. Wells

Though when she tells him, she is publicly rejected! Killian doesn’t believe they are mates and he confidently tells her. He’s positive that he can stay away. But when Una doesn’t leave his mind he suddenly realizes that they’re in fact mates. The thing is… he might be too late.
