Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today we’re talking about tropes 🙂
I already did a few of my favorite tropes in the past: Enemies to lovers – pen pal romances – found families – more enemies to lovers – fake dating. But a trope I didn’t yet focus on, yet love immensely, is the forced proximity trope!
Forced proximity can encompass a lot of things. Basically it’s when 2 people (maybe enemies, maybe friends, maybe acquaintances, maybe strangers) are forced to spend a lot of time together (whether they want to or not). It can be that are forced to work together, go on a trip together, need to survive in the woods together, are stuck living together, forced to pretend to date, and so on. So there is definitely some overlap possible with those other well-loved tropes, but in whatever form it’s a trope I can’t get enough off and always seem to love.
So below are 14 romance books to read if you love the forced proximity trope!
