The Best Lesbian Romance Books

A Fake Relationship Lesbian Romance Book

Darcy is tired of her brother trying to fix her up, so after a disastrous blind date with Elle, his coworker, she fibs and tells him that they were a match.

Elle is ready to find her soul mate but she’s assured that it is not Darcy who couldn’t be more opposite to the care-free astrologer. But when she finds out that Darcy lied to her brother saying that they are now dating, she somehow agrees to Darcy’s plan to fake date through the holidays.

And the more these two spend time with one another, it appears love may be written in the stars for these two opposites after all.

I really liked this opposites attract story between the quirky astrologer and the straight-laced actuary. It wasn’t overdone to make either seem like an extreme personality or that they wouldn’t be able to find commonality.

A well-written debut novel and an overall adorable book that I didn’t want to put down. I highly recommend it! Check out my review of Written in the Stars.

Count Your Lucky Stars
by Alexandria Bellefleur

A Second Chance, Friends to Lovers Lesbian Romance

Margot Cooper doesn’t do relationships. But when she comes face-to-face with Olivia Grant—her childhood friend, her first love, her first… well, everything, she’s not so sure about that stance.

Olivia must be hallucinating. Never in a million years did the wedding planner expect her important new client’s Best Woman would be the one that got away.

When a series of unfortunate events leaves Olivia without a place to stay, Margot offers up her spare room. As they spend time in close quarters, Margot starts to question her no-strings stance. But will history repeat itself or should she count her lucky stars that she gets a second chance with her first love?

Bellefleur again dazzled with this lesbian romance that was surprisingly really HOT!

Margot is starting to feel like the fifth wheel now that her friends are paired up with their special someones when she comes face to face with her childhood friend.

She hasn’t seen Olivia for eleven years since their childhood friendship ended after a very hot and heavy spring break where they crossed the line from friends to lovers.

When she offers up her apartment when Olivia needs to stay, it creates a really great forced proximity situation for these two to finally mend their friendship and possibly become more. Check out my review of Count Your Lucky Stars.

Delilah Green Doesn't Care is one of the best lesbian romance books worth reading. Check out the entire book list of lesbian romance novels on She Reads Romance Books.

Delilah Green Doesn’t Care
by Ashley Herring Blake

Small Town Lesbian Romance Books

Delilah Green swore she would never go back to Bright Falls—nothing is there for her but memories of a lonely childhood where she was little more than a burden to her cold and distant stepfamily.

Her life is in New York, with her photography career finally gaining steam and her bed never empty. Sure, it’s a different woman every night, but that’s just fine with her.
When Delilah’s estranged stepsister, Astrid, pressures her into photographing her wedding, Delilah returns to town and plans to keep her trip brief until she sees Claire Sutherland, one of Astrid’s stuck-up besties, and decides that maybe there’s some fun (and a little retribution) to be had in Bright Falls, after all.
Having raised her eleven-year-old daughter mostly on her own while dealing with her unreliable ex and running a bookstore, Claire Sutherland depends upon a life without surprises. And Delilah Green is an unwelcome surprise…at first.

Though they’ve known each other for years, they don’t really know each other—so Claire is unsettled when Delilah figures out exactly what buttons to push.

When they’re forced together during a gauntlet of wedding preparations—including a plot to save Astrid from her horrible fiancé—Claire isn’t sure she has the strength to resist Delilah’s charms. Even worse, she’s starting to think she doesn’t want to.

Check out this lesbian romance book if you love found family books and storylines where characters are able to confront their conflicting feelings about their past and finally move on with a promising future. There’s a reason it was nominated for Best Romance in the 2022 Goodreads Choice Awards!

D’Vaughn and Kris Plan a Wedding
by Chencia C. Higgins

A Fake Relationship Lesbian Romance Book

Instant I Do could be Kris Zavala’s big break. She’s right on the cusp of really making it as an influencer, so a stint on reality TV is the perfect chance to elevate her brand. And $100,000 wouldn’t hurt, either.

D’Vaughn Miller is just trying to break out of her shell. She’s sort of neglected to come out to her mom for years, so a big splashy fake wedding is just the excuse she needs.

All they have to do is convince their friends and family they’re getting married in six weeks. If anyone guesses they’re not for real, they’re out.

Selling their chemistry on camera is surprisingly easy, and it’s still there when no one else is watching, which is an unexpected bonus. Winning this competition is going to be a piece of wedding cake.   

But each week of the competition brings new challenges, and soon the prize money’s not the only thing at stake. A reality show isn’t the best place to create a solid foundation, and their fake wedding might just derail their relationship before it even starts.

What’s not to love about this lesbian romance book set within a reality TV show? I have a thing for fake relationship books because I love watching the characters try to ignore their growing feelings when you can just see the chemistry jump off the page.

The Perks of Loving a Wallflower

A Historical Lesbian Romance Book

As a master of disguise, Thomasina Wynchester can be a polite young lady—or a bawdy old man. She’ll do whatever it takes to solve the cases her family takes on.

But when Tommy’s beautiful new client turns out to be the highborn lady she’s secretly smitten with, more than her mission is at stake.

Bluestocking Miss Philippa York doesn’t believe in love. Her heart didn’t pitter-patter when she was betrothed to a duke, nor did it break when he married someone else. All Philippa desires is to decode a centuries-old manuscript to keep a modern-day villain from claiming credit for work that wasn’t his.

She hates that she needs a man’s help to do it—so she’s delighted to discover the clever, charming baron at her side is in fact a woman. But as she and Tommy grow closer and the stakes of their discovery higher, more than just their hearts are at risk.

Mystery, disguises, and scheming abound in this queer Regency romance novel. Check it out for a female/non-binary lesbian romance that’s high on steam!

If you’re going to read a lesbian romance book, then a title by Melissa Brayden is a must. I love the setup of this small town romance where former classmates who didn’t click definitely seem to sing a different tune as adults.

Sully Morales loves baking and is determined to win the Holiday Baking Challenge. She just has to convince her grumpy AF baking partner that they make a great team both in and out of the kitchen before an unexpected betrayal ends their chance to attain culinary competition glory.

This lesbian romance includes another one of my favorite romance book tropes – the fake relationship love story.

I guess it’s also a bit of enemies to lovers given the frustration and angst that started their relationship rumors in the first place.

This is one of my top picks from the list!

An Enemies to Lovers Lesbian Romance Book

Books are Rosie Taft’s life ever since she took over her mother’s beloved Manhattan bookstore. The only thing missing is her own real-life romance like the ones she loves to read about, though she’s hoping the flirty online friendship with lesbian romance author Brie could turn into something more.

Jane Breslin works hard to keep her professional and personal lives neatly separated. By day, she works for the family property development business. By night, she puts her steamier side on paper under her pen name: Brie.

When Rosie learns that her bookstore’s lease has been ended by Jane’s family’s business, romance moves to the back burner. Even though they’re at odds, there’s no denying the sparks that fly every time they’re together. When their online identities are revealed, will Jane be able to write her way to a happy ending, or is Rosie’s heart a closed book?

But when Malini accidentally bears witness to Priya’s true nature, their destinies become irrevocably tangled. One is a vengeful princess seeking to depose her brother from his throne. The other is a priestess seeking to find her family. Together, they will change the fate of an empire.

I’ve found a love of fantasy romance books so when I saw this book, it instantly stood out as a different type of lesbian romance worth reading.

For Her Consideration

A Hollywood Lesbian Romance Book

Since a crushing breakup three years ago, Nina Rice has written romance, friends, her dreams of scriptwriting for TV, and even LA proper out of her life. Instead, she’s safely out in the suburbs in her aunt’s condo working her talent agency job from home, managing celebrity email accounts, and certain that’s plenty of writing—and plot—for her life.

But a surprise meeting called by Ari Fox, a young actress on everyone’s radar, stirs up all kinds of feelings Nina thought she’d deleted for good.

Ari is hot, out and proud, and a serious control freak, according to Nina’s boss. She has her own ideas about how Nina should handle her emails—and about getting to know her ghostwriter.

When she tells Nina she should be writing again, Nina suddenly finds it less scary to revisit her abandoned life than seriously consider that Ari is flirting with her.

Between reconnecting with her old crew and working on a new script, a relationship with a movie star seems like something she’ll definitely mess up—but what could be more worth the risk?

Hollywood life seems to be a popular setup for recent contemporary lesbian romance books and this one is no different.

I love books about writers and characters who revisit their dreams so this one is a keeper.

A Grumpy Sunshine Lesbian Romance Book

Amy Chambers will do anything to revive her ailing restaurant, including hiring a former reality-show finalist with good connections and a lot to prove. But her hopes that Sophie Brunet’s skills and celebrity status would bring her restaurant back from the brink of failure are beginning to wane.

Sophie just wants to cook. She doesn’t want to constantly post on social media for her failing reality TV career, and she doesn’t want to think about what her attraction to her boss might mean.

Then, an opportunity: a new foodie TV show might provide the exposure they need. An uneasy truce is fine for starters, but making their dreams come true means making some personal and painful sacrifices and soon, there’s more than just the restaurant at stake.

This lesbian romance book also features a reality TV show storyline and sounds too delicious to pass up.

If you also adore the grumpy sunshine trope Sophie seems to fit the bill, but I think her desperation to ignore her attraction to her boss is the best part of this novel.
