No. But MM books can be added here. When I made the list, I didn't limit it by pairing -- "All pairings (gay, straight) welcome."

If you know of any MM books that fit the theme, feel free to add them! :-)

BookLovingLady Why not 'Romance: Mum's Best Friend or Best Friend's Mum'? It happens in real life, although I'm not sure there are books written about it.

I don't know, it's not really a common trope? Feel free to make a new list for it if you want :-)
