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.

  1. Would A.E. Radley’s trilogy count, even though they are not conventional ‘office’ romances? If not, a couple of her other titles might.

    • The books for this square don’t need to take place in a conventional office, but the main characters have to work together in some way, e.g., co-workers, boss/employee, or one is a client of the other

  2. Paper Love would be perfect. I also have Release the Stars by Harper Bliss still unread on my phone; that sounds like a workplace romance too.

  3. Great list! I’ve read most of these. I just finished “Paper Love.” Other books I love for this square are: “Blessed Twice” by Lynn Galli, “It’s Not a Date” by Heather Blackmore, and “Under a Falling Star” by Jae.

  4. I think this is the only list I’ve seen where I’ve thought “Ewwwww, I did not like that one.” To each their own, right. The only book on the list left for me to read is Paper Love. I have it, it’s just a matter of getting to it.

  5. I love this category! Even though I’ve read a bunch of books that fit this square, I see that there is a few more that I haven’t read yet.

  6. Great list! Just finished “Uncommon emotions” by Lynn Galli. Loved it! I also enjoyed “Paper Love by JAE. Next might be “The Muse” by Suzie Carr. Sounds promising ✨

  7. Great list! I already read a couple. I think I’m gonna start with Turbulence and Paper love. I also didn’t start yet with the new series of Melissa Brayden so those will probably follow. As for my fourth card I’m still in limbo.. By the way I think the series of Dar & Kerry by Melissa Good would also be a great fit for this square!! Happy readings!

  8. I read Ambereye this year and absolutely loved it! For this, I’ll read The Music & the Mirror by Lola Keeley. Looking forward to it! :-)

  9. I’m so excited, there are some books on this list, which is one of my favourite, that I am eager to read now. Thank you for sharing.

  10. Great list; there are a lot here I haven’t read. So glad to see Lynn Galli – she’s a favorite author. I filled in this square a while ago with one of her newer books, Winter Calling, which is a romance at a ski resort headquarters. Wonderful book, very recommended.

  11. I got on queue Paper Love by Jae and The Muse by Suzie Carr, and I got some of this list in my want to read list, also I was thinking under a falling star by Jae should be in this list as well

    I like this category too

  12. So many great books have make this list. Tough choice to narrow down the list. My personal favourites – Fated Love and And a Playing The Role of Herself

  13. A.E. Radley excels at this subject. Mergers and Acquisitions was the first three-way office romance I’d read where I didn’t know who the main character would end up with! Loved that new dynamic. Climbing the Ladder is set in a lesbian magazine office and has so many potential pairings. Bring Holly Home isn’t technically in an office, but they are former co-workers.

  14. Hi! Love your books, and just starting to follow this blog. I have to agree with Shai – two of my favorites in this category are also Fated Love and Playing the Role of Herself.

  15. In the mood for a workplace lawyer story. Gonna read “Sidebar” or “Courtship” or “Love’s Verdict” by Carsen Taite. Not that I must narrow the choice down to only one, but I have an universe-long TBR pile. I need to cycle through different authors for a “fair” approach to reading my way through it all, lol.

  16. It’s Not a Date by Heather Blackmore is on my first Bingo card. For the second I will read Love By Design by Violette Grey. But some books mentioned are absolutely worth reading!

  17. I’m going to read paper love. I thought the doctor square was my fave, but apparently not! There’s only two others here I haven’t read… yet!

  18. Three books: “Uncommon emotions”, “Fated love”, “Too close to touch”.
    I’ll probably reread “Love by the numbers”: not my favorite book by Karin Kallmaker, but she never write predictable books. I think that “Above temptation”, also by K.K., is a good choise for this square

  19. Definitely reading “The Music and the Mirror”.

    I’m extremely happy for Lola, since I’ve been reading her stories for a long time. It’s nice to see she gets the recognition she rightfully deserves :)

  20. Another good list Jae. I read Karen Kallmaker – Above Temptation, Jae – Just Physical and Brenda Adcock – the Heart of the Mountain for this category so far.

  21. This is a category I haven’t read much from. I feel it’s a challenging category because you’re playing with potential power issues and that needs to be done well. I’ll have to check these out when I have a bit more time.
