shhzbooks97 | 9 comments Okay here’s the guidelines:

1. Contemporary romance with descriptive sex (I don’t want erotica level stuff but none of that fade-to-black nonsense either)

2. They have to be coworkers on the same-ish level. I don’t want any boss/employee stuff. I repeat, absolutely *no* boss/employee stuff

3. (Optional) okay bonus points if they don’t jump into bed together within the first few pages and actually let the sexual tension build before they have sex for the first time.

Books with this trope that I’ve already read (and love):

1. The Last Guy by Ilsa Madden-Mills
2. The Hating Game
3. Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James
4. #1 Rivals by T. Gephart
5. Tangled by Emma Chase
