Our Favorite Odd Couples in Romance

[Note from Frolic: This post is brought to you by our friends at Kensington. Looking for your next romance featuring an odd couple? Look no further than Breaking Badger by Shelly Laurenston!]

There’s something so adorable about an odd, opposites-attract couple, especially in romance. Grumpy/sunshine? Gimme. Nerd/jock? Grabby hands! And don’t even get me started on height differences. If you love stories about heroes and heroines falling in love with their polar opposites, look no further! Find your new favorite book below.

1. Breaking Badger by Shelly Laurenston

If you’re a fan of shifter romances, this book needs to be on your list. How often do you see a romance between a Siberian Tiger shifter and a Honey Badger shifter!? Our leads Finn and Mads couldn’t be more different, but their chemistry couldn’t be hotter. If you’re looking for a contemporary romance with a shifter twist, this is the book for you. Come for the shifters, stay for the fantastic world building and an unforgettable romance. 

2. A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole

Can it really be an odd couple when they’re both smart, driven and gorgeous? You bet they can! In A Princess in Theory, the last thing scientist Ledi wants is a prince to come and save her. But that’s exactly what she gets–minus the saving–when it’s revealed that she’s actually a long lost princess. Can she and prince Thabiso overcome their different lives and find an HEA together? 

3. The Cinderella Deal by Jennifer Crusie

Free Spirit x Workaholic, my favorite combo! When Linc needs a fake fiance, he makes Daisy an offer she can’t refuse.”But something funny happens on their way to the altar that changes everything. Now, with the midnight hour approaching, will Daisy lose her prince, or will opposites not only attract but live happily ever after?” One-click now!

4. Written in the Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur

Astrologer meets math nerd in this adorable f/f romance that’s perfect for astrology lovers. When their first date goes wrong, Elle and Darcy are sure they’re wrong for each other. But when a lie turns everything on its head, they might just find themselves falling in love. 

5. Reel by Kennedy Ryan

Okay, we’re sort of cheating on this one, because a director and an actress make a PERFECT COUPLE! The only catch is that Cannon is a film director, and Niveah cut her teeth as a theater actress. So, it totally counts. When Cannon offers Niveah her first shot at a major film role, sparks fly on set and beyond. 

Opposites really do attract! Make sure to check out all of these wonderful books, especially Breaking Badger
