Welcome to the Athlete Heroines in Romance Master List!! There are 200+ books including Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult novels along with every genre from Paranormal to Western. This list will be updated as I find more books (and in the future with former athlete heroines).
Not too long ago, I was compiling books for a blog post about Athlete Heroines in Young Adult novels. From a young age, sports have been an integral part of my life so naturally I wanted to focus on Athlete Heroines. Then, I started thinking about how I wanted to read more New Adult and Adult Romances with Athlete Heroines.
There seems to be a huge lack of focus on Athlete Heroines in Sports Romance recommendation lists. More often than not, there will just be recommendations with Heroes who are athletes (and usually white ones at that). Naturally, I couldn’t help but compile a list showing all the Athlete Heroines that exist in Romance
(because you know how I am with promoting women in male dominated fields *cough* STEM Heroines in Romance Master List *cough*).
I hope this helps you to find your next favorite read. And maybe even gets you inspired to try out a new sport in the New Year 🎉.
