Pride & Prejudice - Jane Austen
If we are going to start somewhere, we need to start with the original 'enemy-to-lovers' genre. Jane Austen's classic novel is the best place to start if you're looking for books to read next.
It is arguable that this is book forms the framework for most modern romantic comedy novels these days - and continues to inspire more writers to try their hand at romance.
The book has been adapted into countless films and Seth Grahame-Smith even added Zombies to the story - which is potentially a finer book than the original.
One Day - David Nicholls
I remember reading this one summer, on a couch in a flat owned by an ex-lover. An ex-lover who was gallivanting through the USA and who, it would turn out, dumped me when they returned. After paying three months of their rent.
This has no reflection on this wonderful book but the painful, beautiful story inside the pages of this book still sticks with me many years later.
One day is potentially one of the best romantic comedy books of the 2000s
It Ends With Us - Colleen Hoover
It ends with us is one of the most decorated romantic novels currently, and is certainly one to read.
It doesn't follow the traditional format of books like the Spanish love deception but it is a book we recommend reading if you like Elena Armas.

Love At First Spite - Anna E Collins
Anna E Collin's stays true to the 'enemy-now-lovers' genre which many of these books listed employ.
If you're looking for a book very much like The Spanish Love Deception, then this is the closest so far.
It follows a scorned lover who employs the talents of an architect at her firm to build a 'spite house' to take revenge. The rest, you can pretty much gather.
Love at First Spite is a book we'd recommend for a light-hearted read for when you need bit of 'feel-good'.
