My Favourite Slow Burn Romances

Slow burn romance is one of my absolute favourite type of romances to see in books the second being enemies to lovers because there is so much angst, that build up that makes the reader hang on to every interaction between the characters. I love it so much! Then when they finally get it together and admit their feelings, damn, it’s so satisfying!

So here are some of favourites!

1 Kaz and Inej from Six of Crows – Guys! The slow burn is SO GOOD. Leigh kept me on the edge of my seat every single time they interacted and I really loved how their story played out but it left me wanting more and I am seriously dying for another Dregs book!

2 Percy and Annabeth from the Percy Jackson series – While this could also be friends to lovers, I also feel it’s slow burn because they took five years to get it together! Then when they finally have that perfect underwater first kiss the Greek gods decide to throw another prophecy at them. They are goals.

3 Lord Carlston and Lady Helen from The Dark Days Club – They only took the whole trilogy to finally be together. I spent the whole trilogy dying because it did not look like they would ever be able to be together.

4 Adam and Zaineb from Love From A To Z – The type of Muslim romance I have been waiting my whole life to read and damn it was amazing!

5 Este and Harte from The Last Magician – I really loved their banter and how they both tried to show the other up acting like they were not attracted to each other but they really were.

I think it’s safe to say I’m a sucker for all the angst and pain of watching my favourite characters take absolutely forever to just admit they like each other!
