Nichole (DirrtyH) Does Bareback count? I thought Jake didn't really like Tor until they hooked up. I don't think they were really friends.


message 2: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid It is an interesting list with different ideas on what a friendship is.

As it happens I just read the first 2 chapters of Bareback again and they were most definitely not friends!


message 3: by Mountie (new)

Mountie There are a lot of books in here that I would consider "Gay For You" but not "Friends Become Lovers", Gym Dandy, Giving Thanks, Just For You. I just read a TA Chase where they had been friends since childhood, 30 years before they became lovers. Now that one definitely qualifies.


message 4: by Anna (new)

Anna Fairyville by Emma Holly is not a gay romance.


message 5: by Elizabetta (new)

Elizabetta Fairyville #170 does not belong on this list. It is a het romance, not M/M.


message 6: by Taya (new)

Taya The Price of Falling -They were not friends to lover in my opinion. They started of a client to lover as in that one the the MCs paid the other for sex.


message 7: by GinAndCats (new)

GinAndCats Good Times/Bad Times shouldn't count


message 8: by Dominique (new)

Dominique I wouldn't count Alabama Summer as friends to Lovers either. The books starts with them together and his boyfriend is not from his hometown.

I thought the same thing while I was looking trough... there are many that contain instalove and just-sex-kinda-relationships but not friendship (best friends at that) that develops into loving the other romantically


message 11: by Emmitouflee (new)

Emmitouflee I have removed the books mentioned in previous comments as not belonging on this list.


Roger - president of NBR United - Take a Hint, Dani Brown is f/f so doesn't belong on this list


Roger - president of NBR United - would anything after the first book in the Cambridge fellows series count as they are already an established couple?


Roger - president of NBR United - I haven't read it, but Born Wrong?: A Transgender Teen's Journey description makes it more a memoir and not a romance though their are romantic elements in it.


Roger - president of NBR United - The Help is not M/M. not even a romance


message 16: by Tamara (new)

Tamara Removed books from messages #12, #14, #15
