One of my favorite tropes is friends to lovers. In a genre that often gets labeled as unrealistic, it feels like one of the more likely scenarios that can bring a pair together romantically. Sure, we all enjoy a love-at-first-sight meet-cute, but nothing beats the moment a switch goes off between people who only ever saw each other platonically, and suddenly the sparks fly. When that moment is done right, it can lead to a magical romance. From powerhouse writing duos Christina Lauren to new-favorite Talia Hibbert, this trope seems to be a favorite among authors as well!
