I adore the ‘friends to lovers’ theme in m/m.
There is something so delicious about secret
wankings yearnings over friends which really floats my boat.
These are three of my fave stories:
Out Of My Mind by M L Rhodes Most people know I’m such a squeey fangirl for this author and this was one of the first books I read by her. I think it was at some stage between reading it and Evangeline Anderson’s The Assignment that I realised I was a complete and utter sucker for the ‘friends to lovers’ theme. I mean, c’mon; two sexy, strong men admitting their feelings and lust for each other?? What could possibly be better than that! *g*
The One That Got Away by Rhianne Aile & Madeleine Urban Can anyone say steamy? Good God, this book is smoking hot. It is a tale of attraction and seduction between friends who suddenly find themselves in an intimate situation. For me, this has one of the best build ups of sexual tension which I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading in a story. Full of complete win.
Like Coffee and Doughnuts by Elle Parker Slightly less than a gazillion years ago I did a ‘tasting’ of this wonderful book here so I won’t go into too much detail now. I will say that, despite the number of times I’ve reread LC&D, I never fail to be engaged by the banter and dynamic between Dino and Seth. The dialogue is awesome. And OMG! there’s a sequel coming out in October. Woot!
What about you? Is the ‘friends to lovers’ theme one that you like? What are your faves?
