Two Houses was a surprise hit for me and was one of my favorite Enemies to Lovers books of 2021! It made me laugh out loud a lot, and the two main characters have a very believable rivalry going (with some hits under the belt).

Hate Notes is a classic Enemies to Lovers story with a twist that broke my heart and was incredibly beautiful!

Reed is the all-out-jerk alpha we’ve come to love and hate (yes, love and hate, you know it’s true). Charlotte is a down-on-her-luck heroine who believes that, deep down, Reed is an entirely different man than the facade he shows her and the world.

Hate Notes holds a special place in my heart because it’s one of the few popular Romance novels that deal with chronic illness. Sebastian York beautifully embodies Reed, and Lynn Barrington’s narration of Charlotte will pull on your heartstrings!

The banter in Getting Schooled completely cracked me up!

I loved that Jason isn’t your usual flawless Romance hero. And Reese is my favorite kind of heroine: Smart and thoughtful, but also a little bit of a weirdo and with an utterly unexpected streak (you’ll see when you get there). The chemistry between Reese and Jason sure is off the charts!

While this Enemies to Lovers book has a happy ending, their story continues in the second and third books of The Wright Brothers series. So you will get more info on how their relationship develops if you continue. Sean Crisden and Adenrele Ojo are two of my favorite narrators, and they truly brought Getting Schooled to life!

A wedding planner and a divorce attorney? If that isn’t the perfect set-up for an Enemies to Lovers book, I don’t know what is!

But to make it all the more heartwarming, he’s also a single dad (and a wonderful one at that). Never Have I Ever deals with some pretty serious topics, but it’s so warm and sweet and will give you all the feels.

Amanda Ronconi and Jason Clarke are wonderful as Piper and Zach!

Kimber has had nothing but bad luck and is now stuck in the beautiful city. Matteo is her kind-of-but-not-really stepbrother who wants to buy Kimber’s company. And she has to ask herself if he’s only playing her or if the sparks are real…

All three stand-alone books in J.T. Geissinger’s Slow Burn series are great. But Matteo was my absolute favorite! And with Brian Pallino’s accent, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with him, too.

From Lukov with Love has all the passion you’d expect in Enemies to Lovers books while still giving you the slow burn we all love Mariana Zapata for.

Ivan and Jasmine used to compete in figure skating but have to learn to work together. I adored Ivan, especially voiced by the wonderfully warm-sounding Teddy Hamilton. And Jasmine is a kickass, complex, modern heroine, perfectly brought to life by Callie Dalton.

This is a slow-burn Sports Romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat because it’s a deliciously intense story!

Get the Audible book**

Enemies to Lovers books don’t always have to be angsty. Walk of Shame is an adorably fun book about a bubbly socialite and her neighbor who’s annoyed by her.

Susannah Jones is the perfect voice for Georgie, who seems to have such a frivolous life, but actually has a lot more depth than she’s getting credit for. Joe Arden reads the grumpy lawyer next door who keeps telling himself that this is really not his type of woman.

If you need a feel-good Romantic Comedy to unwind and giggle, Walk of Shame by Lauren Layne is the perfect choice!

If you need a quick Enemies to Lovers romance, Thirty Day Boyfriend is a must-listen! This fast-paced fake relationship Office Romance is one of my favorite short audiobooks. Whitney G.’s novella honestly blew me away and manages to make a popular trope entirely it’s own.

Emily just wants to get away from her job, but her boss really, really likes Emily and hires her for a special task: Playing his fiancée. And if you think she just gave in to his charm, I have to tell you, nope, no, she did not! She asked for an absolutely outrageous sum of money on top of the promise to let her out of her job afterward. Attagirl!

Lauren Rowe is one of the very few authors who can actually pull off insta-love. Her characters have so ridiculously much chemistry, it’s absolutely believable that they see each other and know that’s the one! And they pull me right along with them!

In Captain, this instant soul-deep attraction turns into a whole lot of hate between Tessa and Ryan when things take an unexpected turn.

The Morgan Brothers series is one of my favorite Romance series because every single book is so much fun: Captivating, insanely hot, and with super likable characters! They’re all stand-alones, but you really just want to listen to them all.

But when they meet in person for the first time, she isn’t at all what he expected, so he doesn’t tell her who he really is.

Too many people are familiar with this fantasy: What if the boy who teased you in school really had a giant crush on you? That’s exactly what Friends without Benefits is about – and so much more.

This is one of those audiobooks I have listened to many times, and I think many more will follow. If you’re looking for a bully love story that is a little bit lighter and more of an adult romance than Punk 57, Penny Reid’s novel is your perfect choice!

Devra Woodward has a beautiful smoky voice and is so much fun to listen to!

Don’t you just love your smut? I kind of assume that’s why you are here 😉 This book is smut about smut! More specifically, two students who can’t stand each other have to do a team project and end up writing erotica together. It’s insanely entertaining and very sexy!

Smut by Karina Halle is witty and amusing, making some meta-level fun of the Romance genre (or rather, the Romance story template) while being smack in the middle of it itself!
