Romance and Me: The Office Romance

Filed in featured , Romance and Me , The Latin Lover Posted on January 30, 2013 @ 3:00 pm 4 comments

Hey Everyone!

In today’s post I’d like to talk to you about another trope I like a lot: office romances!

There is just something so exciting about having colleagues, or a boss and his/her employee try to fight their attraction and then sneak around trying to keep their relationship secret 😀 For me “office romances” don’t necessarily mean the hero and heroine have to work in an actual office/boardroom, I expand this category to any two people working together and falling in love: they could be co-workers in a hospital, bartender and restaurant owner, wedding planner and cameraman, etc. My only requirement is that somehow their meeting was due to them having to do work together.

When thinking of the different “office romance” stories I looked through the books I’ve read and made a compilation of the office romance books I have read, but my list could still use some new additions, so do tell me

Do you like the office romance trope? Is this a set-up you enjoy reading?

Any great office romances you could recommend?

ps. when searching through Goodreads I found these lists containing office romance books:

Office Romances

Steamy Office Romances

    Noooo! I really cannot think of any of the men at my office like that. So no, office romances are not for me.

      Lol, funny but I’ve always had some very handsome men colleagues in my office, so I always toyed with the idea (also there were several couples in the office, so I guess it just made it even more acceptable)

    Office erotica creeps me the hell out. How many people I work with are fantasizing during meetings? *shudder*

      Lol, I agree, would creep me out as well, but if it’s in a book I enjoy 😀
