Let’s Talk Tropes: Enemies with Benefits…Podcast Edition!

We’re back with another podcast episode! This month, we’re talking Enemies to Lovers (aka, the most popular trope in Romancelandia that none of us really like), as well as all the books called Enemies with Benefits that we read this week.

Show Notes

Here are all our reviews of Enemies with Benefits books: Roxie Noir, Annika Martin and Johanna Chambers, Zara Cox, and J.D. Hollyfield.

Our last podcast discussing books with the same title (Husband Material) was back in January.

The J.D. Hollyfield could be part of a series, but if it is it’s not linked to the rest of its friends anywhere useful (Goodreads/Amazon).

Erin refers to Heated Rivalry without any additional information because Holly and Ingrid both already know exactly which book she’s talking about because she never stops talking about it. 🙂 It’s the one by Rachel Reid. 

The article about Bridgerton’s changes to The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn (the infamous bee scene!) is here.

If you’re curious about zombie dinosaurs, Holly highly recommends A Heart of Blood and Ashes

Check out our discussion of A Hunger Like No Other here. And the cosmic thing that’s making everyone fight even harder than normal is called the Accession. 

The book where she pulls all the marshmallows out of his Lucky Charms is Nobody’s Baby But Mine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and we talked about that book here.

“Why can’t they be together right now?” is a Sarah MacLean romance novel writing guidepost because until the very end, there should always be a good answer to this question!

You, too, should read Ingrid’s attachment post if you haven’t already (and reread it if you have!). 

Our recommended reads for this trope include: Enemies with Benefits by J.D. Hollyfield (Ingrid), Kulti by Mariana Zapata (Ingrid), Enemies with Benefits by Roxie Noir (Holly), A Heart of Blood and Ashes by Milla Vane (Holly), The King’s Man by Elizabeth Kingston (Holly), Honeytrap by Aster Glenn Gray (Erin), Icebreaker by A.L. Graziadei (Erin).

And check out the books we’ve recommended in our Enemies to Lovers tag!
