Boss Chicks in Black Romance [Part 2]

Black girls. Black women. We are magic. We are strong. We are some of the fiercest bosses out there. Every now and then I come across a boss chick who makes her presence known, like “Blaw Tadow, Watch Out Now” in the words of the Original Queen Bee. And since y’all loved the first list so much, I figured it was time for a new one!

Pick Your Poison: 6 Friends to Lovers Trope Romances

I want a lover and a best friend, so I guess that’s why this trope speaks so heavily to my heart. There’s so much involved in writing these stories. You get to that point where it’s like, okay so are y’all going to get together or nah!? Watching characters come to the realization that the person they love most is right there, and they know you better than anyone else. The chemistry is off the charts, because duh that’s your best friend. But the characters don’t always see it, yet everyone else in their circle is making bets on when it will finally happen. One of the biggest factors, the fear of ruining one of your most important relationships because of a slight crush develops somewhere down the line. Watching them realize that the romance adds to the friendship and seeing it all come together is the sweetest relief.

Checkout six books (well one series!) from my favorite trope, friends to lovers!
