Favorite Book Lists: Roommate Stories

small favorite booksHi gang! Today I am back with another edition of our Favorite Book Lists! This installment is our Favorite Roommate Stories!

Ok, so full disclosure here. I realized after I made the new list that we actually already had published a list of roommate stories in January and I had totally forgotten. So since I already made a new version before I realized it, I have just gone ahead and updated this one instead, so it is nice a shiny and up to date with our latest roommate stories. So forgive me for the repetition, but I figure this is a great trope and the more the better!

I love this theme as a twist on the Friends/Enemies to Lovers genre. One of the things I like about friends to lovers is that the partners are people who really know each other well. They aren’t all about the flash that comes from trying to impress someone. They are people who already have a connection as friends, and something sparks to turn things romantic. With roommates, that is amped up even more. They see you with messy hair and sweatpants and desperately in need of coffee. You share bathrooms and kitchens and TVs. There is no hiding when you are in love with your roommate. They know the good and the bad and if they still want you, you have the magic.

Here is a list of our top rated books that feature roommates. If you want to see all of our reviews featuring roommate stories, you can check them out here. And if we have missed any that you love, please let us know in the comments!


  1. Blame It on the Mistletoe by Eli Easton
    If I Must by Amy Lane

    I *love* roommate stories, and will be looking up the ones on this list that I haven’t read.

  2. Ardent Ereader says:

    Leo loves Aries by Anyta Sunday is another great roommate story.

  3. What a fun list! I combed through the list and picked out half a dozen stories. The first couple I read were great. Thanks!

  4. James Escol says:

    Thanks for this list. I might grab one or two or probably a lot out of these titles. BTW, I wholeheartedly second you with Helping Hand by Jay Northcote, Off Base by Annabeth Albert & Leo Loves Aries by Anyta Sunday. You might want to check out Married for a Month by Cate Ashwood as well. =)

  5. This is a wonderful list with so many of my favorites on it… Blame it On the Mistletoe, Off Base, The Distance Between Us, Leo Loves Aries, Love Lessons, and the Talker Series.  So much love to go around!
