Relationship Coach Romance Trope Must Reads
There are so many romance book tropes that I love and the relationship coach trope is definitely one of them!
What do you do if you’re a bit inexperienced and need someone to school you in the ways of seduction in and out of the bedroom?
You find a friend to help of course and naively believe you can keep any developing feelings from happening (yeah right!).
Or maybe you find someone online or even a neighbor willing to step up to the plate and provide some relationship coaching.
OK, so maybe that wouldn’t necessarily happen in real life but these women go for it in these relationship coach trope romance books.
Many of these books could also be considered friends to lovers romance books so if you love that trope check out my list of best friends to lovers books after adding these to your must read list.
The books below have it all in this devouring romance trope.
- Bedroom bucket list – check!
- Virgin ready to turn in her V card- check!
- Dominance exploration – check!
These romance books take relationship coaching to a whole new level and it’s hot.
My Favorite Relationship Coach Romance Books
Nicole decides that she wants to be a “bad girl” so she places an online ad looking for someone to help corrupt her, experiment with her and give her the bedroom experience she’s craving.
This little known romance book was downright HOT and is the ultimate relationship coach book. Nicole literally places an ad on a Craigslist type site looking for someone to expand her experiences and push her limits and boy is Wes the best teacher ever!
This is a short read but it packs so much in. I’ve lost count of how many times I have read it because I just love Nic and Wes’ relationship so much. It’s not only one of the best relationship coach books but one of the best romance novels of all time.
I may be a virgin, but Cooper knows my naughty side. When he offers to be my bedroom guru there’s no turning back.
This no-strings attached arrangement is suddenly turning into more for me. Only problem? Cooper is a player, and in his eyes, I’m just the girl next door.
I love it when the innocent girl turns out to be not so innocent after all! I loved the connection between Cooper and Gracie. This book was full of kink and humor – a great read!
After spending my thirtieth birthday with her parents, Abby sets about giving herself the perfect gift, her bad-boy neighbor, firefighter Lukas Marlow.
Lukas can’t believe the request from sweet little Abby Simmons but when she emails him her sexual to-do list, he can’t help but oblige.
I loved how Lukas didn’t think Abby would follow through on her ask and how he slowly began to see his neighbor in a new light after each of their escapades.
It’s always fun to see what authors would put on a character’s sexual “to do” list and Dawson doesn’t disappoint.
Sean Cassidy may have the reputation as one of the best rugby players who has woman falling at his feet which is why Lucy Fitzpatrick is surprised to discover he’s actually complete rubbish in the sack.
It wasn’t her smartest move to fall into bed with her brother’s teammate and nemesis but now she’s agreeing to show him a thing or two to improve his skills in the bedroom.
I loved this book so much that it also made my list of best romance novels of all time. I love how Reid and Cosway turned the tables in this one where it’s the male hero who needs some education in the bedroom.
Sean’s reputation did not live up to expectations and I loved how Lucy wasn’t shy in telling him so and ultimately helping him and falling for him.
Olivia may be outgoing but she’s painfully insecure around guys—especially the postgrad she’s interested in, but she’s finally ready to go after what she wants.
Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but when Olivia turns to him with her relationship woes, he offers to instruct her in the art of flirting and to help her become more confident.
My list of best relationship coach books wouldn’t be complete without this one. Olivia and Nate were good friends with a close knit crew and seemed to easily add in “benefits” so that she could gain some confidence.
I found their “lessons” so endearing and hot that I was rooting for them to the very end. This book also made my best friends to lovers books list!
After playing a wacky game of Never Have I Ever with her closest friends, Freya confesses that she’s a virgin. And as the amazing best friend that he is, Mac steps up to say that he’ll gladly show her the ways of the bedroom.
What neither of them see coming are the feelings that develop when the clothes come off. Now they’re both about to learn the biggest lesson of all: Don’t fall in love with your best friend.
OMG, I loved this book so much because of the great banter between Freya and Mac. Daws seriously wrote the best scenes between these two as they crossed the line from friends to more when Freya was ready to give up her V card.
This is one of my most favorite books from Daws and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s definitely one of the best in this fun trope.
Cassie Michaels comes up with a list of naughty experiences to impress her sisters and finally convince them—and herself—she’s not just a boring soil scientist. Luckily, she’s found just the man to help her, starting with number four—a night with an anonymous stranger.
Simon’s more than willing to have some fun helping Cassie turn her made-up adventures into reality. But nearing the last few items means nearing the end of their time together, and Simon isn’t ready to let her go.
I love how Simon and Cassie connect when she brings her computer to his repair shop because it’s frozen with her sexploit list on the screen. Talk about a lead in for a stranger to help you make your way through said list!
This book was fun, flirty, steamy and hilarious. A great read for sure!
Joellen is desperate to get noticed by her boss and CEO but she just blends in with the crowd. When she meets her new neighbor, Cameron MacGregor, a tattooed, sexy rugby captain, the playboy offers to teach her how to inspire desire and get her boss’ attention.
You honestly can’t go wrong with a Geissinger book and this is one of my most favorite of hers and one of the best romance novels of all time.
Cameron is one hot Scot and I don’t blame Joellen from wanting to take lessons from him even though their initial meeting did not go well. It was pretty hard for her to resist the rugby player though it’s Cameron’s struggle with Joellen lusting after another that I loved the most.
Riley McKenna’s articles in Stiletto magazine are consistently the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But Riley has a secret…all that sexy talk? Not an ounce of it comes from personal experience. When she’s asked to write something more personal for Stiletto’s anniversary issue, Riley turns Sam Compton.
Sam doesn’t want to be her experimental toy but when she says it’ll either be him or someone else he agrees to help her with her research.
Ah yes. The ole “I have to do research for my job” storyline worked perfect for this relationship coach book by Layne. No one would expect Riley to not have a lot of experience given the topics she covers in her column but I loved how Sam did not want her “trying things out” with any guy but him.
This was a great friends to lovers story as well as a relationship coach book!
Persephone is a 19 year old genius about to graduate college who’s ready to check off a bunch of “firsts.” Reece, the college’s star receiver, mistakenly walks in on her interviews for candidates to “be her first” and decides to help her with her list.
You got to love a girl who’s ready to conduct interviews in a coffee shop for the man she’s going to give up her V card to. Lucky for her she catches the attention of a hot football player who is equally sweet and hot in this must read.
Kelsey has been hopelessly in love with her boss for the last four years but hasn’t been able to get his attention. Ready to finally make her own move she realizes she needs some lessons in seduction.
Who better for the job than Chase, the bartender at Rascals, who has a new girl every night and isn’t looking for a relationship. Only once the lessons pile on, Kelsey’s not sure her boss is the man she truly wants and Chase may no longer be satisfied being just the wingman.
This was a fun, quick read that totally fits the relationship coach trope I love so much. I loved the easy way Kelsey and Chase just fit which made their connection seem so genuine even when it was just a friends-with-benefits arrangement. Kelsey also dealt with some nasty body-shaming by her mom but Chase loved everything about her.

Graham Campbell is willing to give seven nights to teach her everything he knows in the bedroom but he didn’t anticipate falling for her in the process.
If Blakely is writing it, this relationship coach book is sure to be a hot one. I love that these two already know each other and have a short timeline to fit in all their teachings. It looks to be a great brother’s best friend romance as well.
Becca is ready to get back out there and start dating again, so she turns to her best friend, professional hockey stud Owen Parrish who promises he’ll be her guide through the world of online dating.
When things take a more hands on approach Owen’s not ready for her to move on to someone else.
I have a thing for hockey romances so this book definitely caught my attention. It’s another friends to lovers set up where what started out as dating advice turns to more hands on guidance. I can’t wait to check it out.
Lyla Wilder is done being the shy, chemistry nerd extraordinaire. She’s created a “College Bucket List”―with item #7 being a night of uninhibited, mind-blowing S-E-X.
Her best friend, hockey player Beck Davenport helps Lyla with her transformation but if he’s not careful, he’ll end up risking their friendship in order to convince Lyla that he might just be her lucky #7.
And we have another relationship coach book featuring a hockey player and I love that this one features a shy nerd as well. I love it when books in this trope give characters a chance to really let their hair down and see another side to someone who was just a friend but has the potential to be so much more.
Libby may be the world’s biggest dating failure so she turns to her hot best friend, NHL superstar forward, Justin Cruise to help her transform into a goddess in the bedroom.

Who wouldn’t want a hot NHL player to help turn you into a bedroom goddess? Sign me up 😊 I love it when the guy is the one whose heart gets equally wrapped up in the woman he’s trying to help. I can’t wait to read this one and check out the entire series.
Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe but that and her Asperger’s doesn’t help her in the dating department. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice—with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan.
The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan. Soon, their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic.
This book is a widely popular romance and the storyline made it a perfect fit for this book list. I can’t wait to meet Stella and see her initial reactions to Michael. This book also brings in a “paid” element to the relationship coach trope so I’m looking forward to seeing how they manage that once feelings get involved.
Another brother’s best friend story with a hot baseball player. Sign me up.
I like the different angle with this relationship coach book where the female is quite a strong woman. She’s just looking for someone she feels safe to explore some of her fantasies. I look forward to seeing what some of those fantasies are!
He’s a player. Who better to teach me to play than the master himself?
But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers.
There’s so much I don’t know. Like the fact that I’m only a bet.
It’s hard to tell where this book will lead me but I’m willing to check it out if Hart wrote it. I also love romance books with a bet so that makes it an interesting read already!
The reluctant manager of his family’s restaurant, Frankie attempts to live up to the legacy of his father and grandfather. Running a business that isn’t his passion and trying to do it without asking for help leaves him turning to less-than-legal means when he wants to surrender control.

Can Calvin find the confidence to explore his dominant side while showing his younger roommate that submission isn’t only about whips and pain?
I wanted to add an MM book to this book list for some variety and this sounds like a great one. Frankie is going to get an education at dom-sub relationships with Calvin and I anticipate it’s going to be HOT!
