What do you think of M/M romances?

I’ve been recently binging on M/M romances. I love them. The stories can sometimes be just as poignant and lovely as M/F romances. I’m always rooting for their HEAs. What about you?

I absolutely adore M/M romances. They make me feel so happy! I think they're considerably different to some of the M/F romances I've read, too, and that they often have a lot more diversity and depth to their plots.

What are some favourites that you've read lately? I'm always looking for recommendations!

Oh lord, where do I start! I just finished A M Arthur's Omegaverse Story series, Saved, Seen, and Heard. Book 1,2, and 3 respectively. Loved them. An absolute must is Alessandra Hazard's "A Little Bit" Series. Lucy Lennox's Maid Marian series is also excellent. Let me give you a list of authors to try.
Andria Lange
Avery Ford
Jerry Cole
Preston Walker
Devon McCormack
Aimee Nicole Walker
N. R Walker
Sloan Johnson (Homeruns)
Jay Northcote (Housemates)
Alison Hendricks (Eastshore Tigers)
River Jaymes (The Boyfriend Chronicles)
Ella Frank (Sunset Cove)
Hope I haven't given you stuff you read already!

I enjoy the M/M romances as well. I get really giddy. I sometimes expect for it to be just like a female and male story, but it's vastly different to see things from another perspective.

A Clan Beginnings- Tracy St John
A Vampire Queen series- Joey W Hill

Some of my favs!

I think it depends on the story and how the author presents it. M/M romance is a lot of fun to delve into and get lost in. I only wish it were easier to come by in a library.

I have recently switched to only reading M/M when I read romance. M/F stories are just so OTT for me and the way some of the F MC's are written? Ugh.
Anyway, M/M books IMO offer a more interesting and often more thrilling plot.
If you're new to M/M books I recommend the Cut & Run series by Abigail Roux and anything my John Inman or SE Jakes to start with. Enjoy!

Oddly, I often find the protagonists of m/m romances more relatable than m/f heroines, which is strange. Maybe it's that I'm not terribly feminine (or that I'm not straight myself), but it's so much easier to relax and enjoy the story when I'm not confronted with a "normal" woman I'm supposed to identify with. I wish it were easier to find, but in recent years it seems that m/m and f/f are starting to gain some mainstream traction, with is awesome.

I think guy love is cute, actually. As long as the character development and story line is solid, it makes for a great read.
My favorite author in M/M is Amber Kell. I especially love the Krell chronicles. Great read.

Love is love. I appreciate a different perspective and seeing into the lives of characters. As long as a romance has a story and a real character arch/ development I'm all about it. I don't typically reach for romance books unless they are paranormal or thrillers but if its borderline erotica/ porn its not worth reading.

I've only recently started being into M/M stories, I don't know why I was sleeping on those for a long time. Are there any good ones that you can recommend that are available here? It would be great help. Thanks!

I read one "accidentally" and found it turned me on. I practiced a few moves with my husband, and he loved what I had learned in my research. I have since read a few more. Not an every day read, but more of an opportunity to fill a need.

Have been reading m/m book for years already and I couldn't seem to stop! They keep on coming and they get better and better. The TRY series by Ella Frank as an example is a great story until the last installment. I would also recommend THIRDS series by Charlie Cochet, lots of holding guns and holding hands in it:-)

I love m/m more than m/f. I really don't know why. They just feel more intense.
