Rom Com Books Set in New York

While most of our romantic comedy book lists are curated by trope (like friends to lovers or fake dating books), we decided to create today’s list based on the setting. This collection of New York Rom Coms is full of novels that will make you swoon, laugh, and step into life in the Big Apple.

If you’re participating in our Read Around the USA Challenge, any of these books set in NYC can be used as your New York book selection. Although they’re lighter than the other titles on our main list, you’ll still get a feel for life in New York City without the expense of travel. NYC is a destination both Book Girls enjoy visiting again and again, so these books are our perfect mini-escape to the city in between real trips.
