LGBTQIA Romances (Exclusively GB)

Most of these romances feature gay and bisexual men. I have read a lesbian romance, but, for me, it don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that schwing. Unless otherwise noted, everything on this list has a contemporary setting. Reviews are linked, recommended books are in bold.

Albert, Annabeth Waiting for Clark (Bryce/Clark) Hallelujah, both gay the whole time!

Banner, Darryl Dog Tags (Brandon/Jesse)

Bettencourt, Rick Marketing Beef (Evan/Dillon)

Bowen, Sarina The Understatement of the Year (Graham/Rikker) – New Adult, part of the fantastic Ivy Years series, I really liked it.

Bowen, Sarina and Elle Kennedy Him (Wes/Jamie) – New Adult, it’s steamy AND heartfelt.
Bowen, Sarina and Elle Kennedy Us (Wes/Jamie) – Not-as-new adults, finding their way.

Calmes, Mary A Piece of Cake novella (Jory/Sam) – Light and fluffy, mid-series novella

Charles, KJ A Seditious Affair: A Society of Gentlemen Novel – (Silas/Dominic) Historical, strong political elements and period details.

Dee, Cara Noah  (Noah/Julien) – squicky dynamic

Ford, Rhys Sinner’s Gin (Kane/Miki) – Overshadowed by the background story and over-the-top main plot.

Frank, Ella Try (Logan/Tate) – Too much sex? Is that even possible?
Frank, Ella Trust (Logan/Tate) – It’s possible.

Gale, Avon Power Play (Misha/Max) – Contemporary hockey romance, quite enjoyable

Grace, Aria More Than Friends (Ryan/Zach) – New Adult

Hart, Riley Collide (Cooper/Noah) – Decent, I meant to review it, but never bothered.

Jaymes, River Brad’s Bachelor Party (Brad/Cole) – Not good
Jaymes, River The Backup Boyfriend (Alec/Dylan) – Decent
Jaymes, River The Boyfriend Mandate (Memphis/Tyler) – Meh

Hawk,Jordan Widdershins (Percival/Griffin) – Paranormal, very entertaining

Kell, Amber Attracting Anthony (Silver/Anthony) – Paranormal, weird daddy/son tone

Kennedy, Sean Tigers and Devils (Simon/Declan) – Charming, a novel with romance more than a romance novel

Klein, K-Lee Lazy Sundays (Devon/Scott) – Very quick read

Merrow, J.L Muscling Through (Al/Larry) – Big and stupid (really stupid) meets small and smart

Milan, Courtney The Suffragette Scandal (Edward/Free) – It has a small lesbian subplot and a unacknowledged but clear gay partnership in addition to the main M/F romance, but this book is SO GOOD I am including it anyway.
Milan, Courtney Her Every Wish (Crash/Daisy) – It’s a M/F historical romance, but the hero identifies as bisexual.
Milan, Courtney Hold Me (Jay/Maria) – Contemporary new adult romance in which the hero is bi and the heroine is transgender.

Northcote, Jay First Class Package novella (Jim/Patrick) – quick, light read

Riley, Sierra Guardian (Titus/Alex) – If you like big, tattooed men, this could be for you.

Stewart, Nicole Home for Three (Selwyn/Jack/Kess) – A gay man, a bisexual one, and a straight woman.

Walker, N.R. The Weight of It All (Henry/Reed) – Contemporary, enjoyable, sweet, funny
Walker, N.R. Learning to Feel (Nathan/Trent) – Contemporary, mostly pretty standard.
Walker, N.R. Sixty Five Hours (Cameron/Lucas) – Contemporary, pretty good.
Walker, N.R. Imago (Jack/Lawson)- Contemporary, very good
Walker, N.R. Twelfth of Never (Mark/Will)- follow up story only
Walker, N.R. Red Dirt Heart (Charlie/Travis) – good, not great

York, Sara Pray the Gay Away (A Southern Thing Book 1) (Jack/Andrew)- high school, drama, sweet, the start of a series.

As always, recommendations are welcome.

    Excellent list. Once Courtney Milan’s next contemporary comes out, you can add trans to the list as well. I really haven’t read enough that fits into the LGBT category and really should. This month’s pick for Felicia Day’s Vaginal Fantasy book club is The Magpie Lord by K.J. Charles, which I’m very much looking forward to reading.
