Kelly Two man team is not a shifter themed book. Can this be removed?


message 2: by Lori (new)

Lori Done. Thanks for letting me know.

message 5: by Melanie~~ (new)

Melanie~~ Truth in the Dark isn't a shifter book either, IMO. Fantasy and Fairy Tale, yes, but I don't consider Naef's "shift" to being beautiful or Arie-Smith's shift from being loin-like to be shifters. Their forms are due to a curse and can't be changed at-will.

I agree so I removed it. Thanks!


message 7: by Hc (new)

Hc Purr-fect Seduction (The Pride Brothers, #1) really shouldn't be on here.. the main theme is NOT mm, just has a little added mm content but NOT the main theme


message 8: by Remus (new)

Remus Grrrl Almost Home and To Trust a Wolf by Kate Steele are m/f books, not m/m


message 9: by Lori (new)

Lori Thanks Remus. I've removed them from the list.


message 10: by Jess (new)

Jess Candela Shattered Glass by Dani Alexander isn't a shifter book. Unless the cat turns out to have a secret? ;) I'd believe it of her, but since we don't know that in this book I don't think it belongs on this list.


message 11: by Shaz (new)

Shaz Lori, 'A Sure-Fire Cure' isn't a shifter book either.


message 12: by Madeleine (new)

Madeleine Hey y'all :)
I actually need some help finding a book. I don't know if you can help me, but it's worth a shot.
The book is obviously a m/m shifter book. A big beaten and feral wolf (I think he was a wolf) shifter is rescued from a research facility and brought to a safe house. He is unable to shift again for a good while. The guy owning the safe house, actually it's a farm kinda place, very secluded, is a bird shifter. He wears a special necklace and dyes his hair (so to not be recognized as a shifter) His mother and grandmother(?) has been taken and caged along with many others. The two mc's sets out on a rescue mission with many others and they manage to free them all.

Now I've searched everywhere, but I cant seem to find the book. Has anyone read this book and remember it's name? I appreciate any kind of help, thank you! :)

message 15: by Gswift22 (new)

Gswift22 I rely on this list for so much of my reading material now!

I was wondering though -- is there a way to sort / search by what's newly added to it? I presume that things that just don't have ratings are probably new, but, it's fair to say that they could be old and just not reviewed...

So is there a way to search by new m/m shifter books? Or is there another resource someone could direct me to?

message 22: by Ari (last edited Mar 30, 2016 10:57AM) (new)

Ari I need help finding a book. I can't for the life of me remember it's name, what the characters were called or even the plot. Knowing me I probably dreamt the part I can remember and it's not even a book. Anyway, I thought asking was worth a shot.

The only thing I can remember from this book - that I might or might not have dreamt up - is that one of the main characters was kept in the other main characters garage or shed or something. Whilst kept in the garage/shed place few members from the other main characters pack broke in and were tormenting him until the other main character came in and stopped them. Then he lost control of his wolf and 'raped' the other man, who was his mate I think, although later in the book (if it actually is a book) he says he wasn't raped because he allowed the other man to do it, that he's stronger and could have stopped him if he'd wanted to. Oh, and the 'rape' was done in wolf form and it happened the next time the main character went into the garage/shed place as well.

Any help would be much appreciated, even if it's just to tell me this isn't really a book and I'm losing my marbles. Thankyou!❤️


message 23: by Maura (last edited Apr 15, 2016 11:31PM) (new)

Maura I was about to buy this book then forgot about it and now I cannot find it. I think it is a series where a shifter falls in love with a human then has to leave to go on some kind of journey and when he returns his mates is in love with a vampire. They start a three-way relationship..... I'm pretty sure this is a book or I dreamed it but if it is a book does anyone know what it is called?


message 24: by Foretta (new)

Foretta I could use help finding a book!!!!

When I was looking at books on allromanceebooks.com I read a blurb & excerpt that I can't find now! It was paranormal M/M (wolf shifter and human). For some reason the human grew up within the pact and was best friends with a girl. He moves away I think for college. The best friends brother comes to get the human for some reason. When the human opens the door the wolf shifter realizes that he is his mate! I am obsessing about this book and really really want to find out what the title is so I can read it! thanks for any help and/or suggestions

message 27: by Nathan (new)

Nathan Looking for some input, please. I am now just discovering this genre of reading (astonishing, that) and after reading about a dozen books or so I am getting frustrated. I do not understand how so many of the main characters are variations of a Ken doll. Perfect physique, no body hair, able to do anything imagination requires. Are there any good reads that include characters who do not sound as if they bathe in wax and pluck eyebrows? I cannot picture large, powerful wolves shifting into man-boys. It doesn't click with me. I still enjoy the stories but I hope someone can direct me to a few titles that might make me roll my eyes less when it comes to body descriptions. As of now, so many shifters seem to have the same body with only variations in color and size. All perfectly sculpted and hairless. That seems to be a small oversight. OK, done ranting. Any input is appreciated. :-)

Hmm... totally know what you are talking about. I don't remember well about the details of how the guys look but maybe Unacceptable Risk would fit?


message 29: by Arthur (new)

Arthur Shepard Hi everyone, I just creat a new list for M/M Romance with others shifters in main characters other than wolves or felines. It is a list to help the community to find more diversified shape-shifters books. Enjoy and thanks for the help !

Puru-Mochi It's a book in the Mates series by C. Cardeno. I believe it's called In Your Eyes.


message 32: by Lucía (new)

Lucía HELP. The book I'm trying to find is about a werewolf that is rejected by its mate. I believe there is a significant age gap between the MCs. They were good friends, but the alpha wasn't ready for a relationship. Every time the alpha would have sex with another person the other werewolf would suffer extreme physical pain. Then the alpha comes back and grovels for forgiveness.

Anyone have any idea what book it could be?


message 33: by Antares (new)

Antares Hey, can anyone recommend werewolf/hunter story, please ;)


message 34: by Jay (new)

Jay Wolf Does anyone know of any books with a similar premise as Patience by Grace R Duncan? I really like the idea of a werewolf or dog shifter pretending to be a pet, either by choice, or because they can't shift back, like in Patience.

Maybe Eli Easton's series? How to Howl at the Moon. I think there are a few like that in that series.
