Nightrunner - Seregil and Alec

The One That Got Away by Nicky James

Disclaimer: I'm not the author.

Author: Nicky James (Love Me Whole, which I talked about here)

Links: Amazon, Goodreads

Summary: Collapse )

Available in: paperback, Kindle

Genres: thriller, romance, m/m

Notes about book/series: This is my second book by Nicky James and she's really great at writing at the intersection of m/m and mental health. Note that Takoda is an asshole at the beginning of the book, but Charlie digs that he's not being coddled for once, so that works for them. If you prefer a gentle approach, you can go for Love Me Whole instead. Also, A+ to Charlie's dad for being supportive instead of giving Takoda the shovel talk! lol

The thriller aspect was good too. I guessed something, but the tension was strong anyway. It made me want to read more gay thrillers, but I'm wary of queer deaths. Don't worry, there's nothing of the sort here.

The Home I Find With You by Skye Kilaen

Disclaimer: I'm not the author.

Author: Skye Kilaen

Links: Amazon, Goodreads

Summary: Collapse )

Available in: Kindle

Genres: post-apocalyptic, m/m/f

Notes about book/series: I don't read a lot of post-apocalyptic fiction, but this one is pretty quiet, which is more to my taste. There are some bandit attacks, but it's also about living in the countryside with limited technology, taking care of animals and crops...

There is m/m/f in a V formation, plus some other m/m branches. The main m/m pairing has some light D/s, but there's not too much explicit content.

People introduce themselves with their pronouns. There's a non-binary character, with they/them pronouns.

Author: Chuck Tingle

Links: Amazon, Goodreads

Summary: Collapse )

Available in: paperback, Kindle

Genres: parody, fantasy, trans m/trans f

Notes about book/series: This is the biggest crack I've ever read, as well as the biggest F*** You to JKR's transphobia! Behind the crack porn, there's an actual plot, and more importantly a message about open-mindedness.

Thanks for the heads-up to tabular_rasa!

Dark Flame by Kat Silver

Disclaimer: I'm not the author.

Author: Kat Silver

Links: Amazon, Goodreads

Summary: Collapse )

Available in: paperback, Kindle

Genres: urban fantasy, m/m

Notes about book/series: I love stories full of werewolves, vampires and witches... So that's one more series that I plan on buying on the long term.

The m/m heat level is perfect for me: magic makes Michael very horny, but there are few sex scenes in the actual novel. If you have different tastes from me, there's a porny novelette available for free on the author's website. ;-)

Love Me Whole by Nicky James

Disclaimer: I'm not the author.

Author: Nicky James

Links: Amazon, Goodreads

Summary: Collapse )

Available in: paperback, Kindle, Audible

Genres: romance, m/m

Notes about book/series: I don't know much about DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder, formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder), but this seemed very well done to me (and to most reviewers). You can feel that the author was careful with the way she depicted the characters and I quickly grew to love them all. It's a really beautiful m/m romance. ♥_♥
