Star Wars fanfiction, specifically “reylo” fanfiction, has secretly been invading the romance genre lately from the highly successful The Love Hypothesis to self-published short stories and everything in-between. This is something I have been very curious about, so I decided to sit down, do some research, and figure out what books were originally Star Wars Reylo fanfiction!

Fanfic-to-book status for each book listed has been vetted through behind-the-scenes research and internet scouring to confirm the original sources for each. Any suspected stories that I could not confirm with an original source (fanfiction) have not been added to this list, although there are many.

So, here is the list of books that I have been able to confirm were originally Star Wars Reylo fanfiction.

The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

The Love Hypothesis follows PhD student Olive, who finds herself fake dating professor Adam Carlsen, known jerk.

Possibly one of the most popular published former-reylo fanfics, this book quickly became a best-seller last year after going Tiktok viral. An alternate version of the book’s 16th chapter was later released through Hazelwood’s newsletter and is set to be published within the book’s newer printings.
