19 of the Best Friends to Lovers Books

We’re big fans of many romance novel tropes, especially those that come in rom com form. The friends to lovers book genre is an easy one to love because both Book Girls were friends with their now-spouses well before their first dates. Both guys are amazing, even after decades of marriage, so we highly recommend this approach!

Perhaps this is why we also love stories like Monica and Chandler on Friends and Lorelai and Luke on Gilmore Girls. If you’re also drawn to those characters or books about best friends falling in love, this is the perfect list for you. We included a mix of childhood friends to lovers books, along with new friendships that develop into something more.

And if you’re into the opposite, you can always check out the books on our enemies to lovers book list!
