Favorite LGBTQ+ Reads



So, I have only recently started reading M/M, maybe a year ago and I’m loving it.

The book that popped my M/M cherry was

Him (Him #1)

I would read ANY M/M book by this author couple. I’m in love with their writing.

They don’t play for the same team. Or do they?

Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.

Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.

Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend… and a big one to learn about himself.

M/M stories have a special place in my heart!!

It started with HIM and US and it continued with

The Understatement of the Year (The Ivy Years #3)

Goodbye Paradise (Hello Goodbye #1)

I absolutely adored this trilogy – it wass raw and gritty but OMG – also thrilling and absolutely spellbinding.

Captive Prince (Captive Prince #1)

byC.S. Pacat

I wish she would write another book – not only short stories. I’m not a believer in short stories. 😀
I need some new material!!! PRETTY PLEASE!!!

Damen is a warrior hero to his people, and the rightful heir to the throne of Akielos. But when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity, and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave.

Beautiful, manipulative, and deadly, his new master, Prince Laurent, epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country.

For Damen, there is just one rule: never, ever reveal his true identity. Because the one man Damen needs is the one man who has more reason to hate him than anyone else…

I loved this book…..

Sixty Five Hours (Sixty Five Hours #1)

by N.R. Walker

It was funny, sweet, sexy and wonderfully entertaining!!!

Cameron Fletcher and Lucas Hensley are advertising executives who have Sixty Five Hours to pull together the campaign of their careers. 

Sixty Five Hours to get along. Sixty Five Hours to not kill each other. Sixty Five Hours to fall in love.

This book was utterly unique!!


Ox was twelve when his daddy taught him a very valuable lesson. He said that Ox wasn’t worth anything and people would never understand him. Then he left.

Ox was sixteen when he met the boy on the road, the boy who talked and talked and talked. Ox found out later the boy hadn’t spoken in almost two years before that day, and that the boy belonged to a family who had moved into the house at the end of the lane.

Ox was seventeen when he found out the boy’s secret, and it painted the world around him in colors of red and orange and violet, of Alpha and Beta and Omega.

Ox was twenty-three when murder came to town and tore a hole in his head and heart. The boy chased after the monster with revenge in his bloodred eyes, leaving Ox behind to pick up the pieces.

It’s been three years since that fateful day—and the boy is back. Except now he’s a man, and Ox can no longer ignore the song that howls between them.

  1. I still need to read so many of them!!!! Wolfsong is on the priority track, as well as Pacat’s books, but now I’m seeing Bowen’s The Understatement of The Year and….aaaargh, I need more hours in the day.
    Totally agree on Him and Goodbye Paradise. They were absolutely fantastic.

    1. Lol – I feel you!!! There are never enough hours in the day for reading. I’m glad to hear that you got your priorities straight;D

  2. Oh man, I love almost every single book on this list! I’ve never heard of 65 Hours, but since it looks like we have very similar M/M tastes, I’m going to really have to check that out!

    Mad love for HIM, Captive Prince Trilogy, and Wolfsong in particular!
