Nichole (DirrtyH) Did anyone else notice that the covers for Boys of Summer and By Degrees are the same?


message 2: by Lori (new)

Lori I noticed that. Must be a stock photo. That's done a lot unfortunately.


message 3: by Meghan (new)

Meghan Jen, I think that's why "virginal" is in quotes. its in reference to being a gay virgin!

Anyway, some of these aren't even that...for instance Out Of Bounds, currently #62 on the list.


message 4: by Jen (new)

Jen It wasn't in quotes and didn't have the extra line of explanation when I commented...

a year ago.

M'rella Why is A Wife for a Westmoreland by Brenda Jackson here?
There is nothing gay about this book!
I believe none of Brenda Jackson's books have gay characters in them.

I removed all of the Brenda Jackson books. Thanks for pointing them out :)

Lori Are either of the characters in Sammy Dane (Sammy & Friends, #2)by Stormy Glenn a virgin? Doesn't sound like it from the blurb and reviews.

From what I remember neither are actual virgins. They've had sex with men before. One of them, though, is a strict top, who's never bottomed but ended up bottoming.

Anna Kļaviņa Bear, Otter, and the Kid is added twice


Nat ReadingAllNite #526, Diana Copland, Reason to Believe does not have virginal characters to my recollection.


Nat ReadingAllNite #38, Diving In Deep. Not virgins, either of them.


Kelly H. (Maybedog) Natalie wrote: "#38, Diving In Deep. Not virgins, either of them."

And they have had sex with men? Same question for Reason to Believe? I read it too long ago to remember. Let me know for sure and I'll remove them.

Removed Sammy Dane as that's my recollection as well so that makes three of us.

Removed All Acts of Love... as it's clearly a story about a non-transgendered female.


Kelly H. (Maybedog) Removed Tied Up in Knots and Fit to be Tied as the MCs had sex with each other in the first book in the series, likewise with Red Dirt Heart 2, and Red Dirt Heart 3.
