I wanted to share some other best friends romance reads I have read in the past and loved! I've been keeping track of them on the goodreads listopia When Friends Fall In Love and adding to it as I read new ones. My list is here

Airhead (Airhead, #1)  
It wasn't until her death that her best friend Christopher realized how he felt about her. Luckily she had a brain transplant into the body of a supermodel so there may be a second chance for them.
Really cute and funny!

 My Blood Approves (My Blood Approves, #1) 
Alice and Jack start off as friends. It's his brother Peter that she gets the hots for. But it's Jack she has everything in common with and that she feels a real connection with.

  Catching Jordan  
 Jordan falls for a guy on the football team but starts to think differently about her best friend when she finds out he has had feelings for her all along.

 Stealing Parker  
An affair with the baseball coach at her school is going no where so when her friend and academic rival begins to show feelings she thinks it might be the real thing.

 Ditched: A Love Story  
 When her best friend asks her to the prom she thinks they will finally take things to the next level. But prom night turns into a disaster.

 dancergirl (WiHi, #1) 
 A stalker is after her and her best friend is being closed off. The romance wasn't heavy in this but it has some cute moments.

  Sophie & Carter  
 Sophie & Cater both live very difficult lives but having each other to talk to at night is the thing that gets them through it.

 Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)  
 Another one where they start off as friends and then it turns into more.

 On the Fringe   
She has been in love with her brother's best friend forever and when he dies she is heartbroken. But he comes back as a ghost to solve his murder and can't stay away from Claire.

Wake (Watersong #1) 
Gemma starts to fall in love with her sister's best friend and the boy next door, Alex. Too bad being turned into a siren gets in the way.

 I loved the movie of this one! Watched it a ton of times and then had to get the book. When he moves in next door they start off as childhood friends. It's clear she wants him but it takes him a long time to appreciate her.

 The Future of Us  
 Taking place in the 90s, Josh brings over an AOL disc and when they log on they see their future facebook page. Emma doesn't like seeing she is in a bad marriage and Josh is happy to find out he ends up with the most popular girl. This causes fights between them that have been there since six months earlier when Josh told Emma he liked her as more than a friend.

 What a Boy Wants (What a Boy Wants, #1)  
 Sebastian is great with the ladies and even charges for his hook up expertise. But when he realizes he wants his best friend he isn't as confident.

 Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss, #2)  
 I am so jealous of girls that get cute boys next door. I had no kids my neighborhood growing up. Lola and Criket's friendship ended over a misunderstanding and because he moved. When he comes back he won't take no for an answer except that Lola now has a boyfriend.

 Heist Society (Heist Society, #1)  
 Long time friends because she robbed his house, Hale loves helping Kat steal things. 

 The Body Finder (The Body Finder, #1)  
 Jay and Violet are long time friends and Violet notices Jay is hot now. With a murderer on the lose and Violet's ability they team up to stop him.

Falling For Her Fiance (Accidentally in Love, #1)   
 He needs a date for a weeding and she needs a date for a company retreat. While pretending to be a couple the longtime friends start to feel like they should be a couple. 

Flat-Out Love (Flat-Out Love, #1)  
She moves into his house to go to a college nearby and she starts a friendship with nerdy Matt.

 Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)  
Alina hid her powers so she would never have to leave Mal. Now that they are discovered and she is forced away she can't get him out of her mind. 

 Impostor (Slide, #2) 
During the first book, Slide, we can tell romantic feelings are brewing but they don't really progress until this sequel. 

  The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1)   
 While I loved Peeta I also loved Gale and thought he and Katniss had a special friendship. Loved the way they took care of each other.
