Quote
“Tauriel’s relationship with Legolas is significant. They’ve known each other since they were children, and Legolas’ dad, [Elven king] Thranduil, has a soft spot for Tauriel and sees something very special in her. So if you grow up side by side, and your dad has a very special spot in his heart for this young woman who’s a fantastic warrior, I think it’s hard not to notice her.” She laughs. “That’s probably as much as I can say.”


That's it, that's the quote that made me think of them more like a family(even if she's just sort of semi-adopted).

I can't see how a romantic feelings for Legolas would drive her actions. Given his own place(he's not in charge, his father is) - her letting the dwarves go wouldn't seem like it would be "revenge"(plus it doesn't seem like she does, as she follows them to Lake Town despite being told not to) for her feelings not being requited. This isn't ike Eowyn who, Tauriel is leader of the guards, she doesn't need to "run off" to make a point or go to a glorious death instead continuing to live an insignificant life. If she wanted to die there are more convenient ways to do it for her.

It doesn't sound like there is any romantic thing going on with Thranduil but to be honest her actions make more sense in the context of an unrequited love for Thranduil than one for Legolas - I could see how that situation could drive her to take some of the actions she supposedly takes.
