Favorite Enemies to Lovers Romance Novels

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

I’ve not found an enemies to lovers romance that I love more than The Hating Game. Hands down. I loved the unique writing style and, of course, the banter. I think the main reason I gravitate toward this trope is because of the hilarious back-and-forth between the characters. I loved it so much, in fact, that I created an entire blog post of my favorite quotes from this book.

From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata

If anyone can write hilarious banter, it’s Mariana Zapata. And she nails it in this one. I think the most unique thing about this book that attracted me to it was the fact that it was a sports romance with ice skaters. Along with the fantastic hate-to-love trope, I really adored how hard Jasmine works. There are also a lot of parallels between this book and The Hating Game, so if you loved The Hating Game, you should definitely pick up this one.

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

This was the first Mariana Zapata book I ever read, and it may still be my favorite. This isn’t exactly a traditional enemies to lovers. These two begin in an employer/employee relationship and end up having a fall out. I think my favorite thing about this novel is Aiden. I love his fierce dedication to his passion. I like that he is quiet and severe without necessarily being broody.

Kulti by Mariana Zapata

Again this one doesn’t begin with the couple starting out as enemies, but very quickly into the story they do not get along. It’s actually an interesting premise since the main character has actually idolized the hero in this book growing up. He is a retired professional soccer player and she is a current soccer player. He gets recruited as her assistant coach and things go down from there. Again, I love how badass Sal is and I so appreciate how this book addresses the significant lifestyles and pay difference between women in sports and men.

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

This is my most recent enemies-to-lovers read and I was so pleasantly surprised by it. I really like Christina Lauren and will read almost anything they write, but it’s only once in a while that they hit it out of the park for me. This book had me laughing out loud with the banter and one-liners. It was such a fun reading experience.

Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

This book has been extremely popular this year and not just because it’s such a sweet enemies-to-lovers romance. I think everyone appreciates the political escapism this book provides… and the humor is on point. The writing style took a little while for me to get into, but once I did, I really loved this book. This was my vote for the Goodreads Choice Romance category!

Captain (Morgan Brothers #2) by Lauren Rowe

This book actually begins with an instalove, but don’t run away just yet. No one pulls off instalove better than Lauren Rowe. She has the ability to created palpable chemistry between two characters. These characters soon have a falling out and the tension is high. If you’ve never read a Lauren Rowe book, I highly recommend her!

Amour, Amour (Aerial Ethereal #1) by Krista and Becca Ricci

This book took me completely by surprise. I loved the setting of a cirque de soleil type troop. The super-talented, somewhat arrogant hero who seems unbreakable is always fun to read about – particularly when you throw in a character who is absolutely going to break through the prickly exterior.

Well Met (Well Met #1) by Jen DeLuca

I think my favorite part of this book had to be the fact that it takes place during a renaissance fair. In this book you have the hero who takes his job very seriously and the heroine who would just assume not be involved at all. It creates a very tension-filled dynamic with lots of potential.
