F/F Workplace Romance Novels (Lesbian Book Bingo #18)

After focusing on enemies-to-lovers romances in the last post, it’s time to explore another popular trope: workplace romance novels. In a workplace/office romance novel, the two main characters work together, so they are either boss/employee, co-workers, or client/customer. Sometimes, that introduces an element of “forbidden love” into the story.

I know many of you have been waiting for the lesbian enemies to lovers romance list to be posted since it’s one of the most popular tropes in romance novels.

LGBTQIA+ characters (Lesbian Book Bingo #12)

While Lesbian Book Bingo is named after the category that booksellers like Amazon sort most of the women-loving-women books into, it’s really a reading challenge for and about all women who are attracted to women. Since June is pride month, I want this month’s focus to be on the often neglected, ignored, or erased sexual orientations and identities within the LGBTQIA+ community. So for this square, please read a book with at least one female main character who is bisexual, pansexual, asexual, aromantic, trans, intersex, queer, or identifies in some other way that is not straight or lesbian and cis. …

Today, I’ve got another very popular romance trope for you. A lot of romance readers love age difference romance novels.   Traditionally, an age gap romance is considered a romance novel in which there’s an age difference of at least 10 years between the two main characters. The main focus isn’t so much on the specific number of years, though, but the disparity in experience and life stage. For example, if one of the characters is in college, while the other already has a successful career, even eight years could feel like a considerable age gap.   May/December romance novels …
