Lori If you're a lover of M/M Romance, be sure and check out our group http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/2...


message 2: by Rarietty (new)

Rarietty I'm surprised by the number of books on this list.


message 3: by Terra (new)

Terra Noah I'm tempted to add Dar and Gregg because of the smegma-licking scenes. Those really made me cry...on the inside.


Kelly H. (Maybedog) Let's Hear it for the Boy shouldn't be on here. It's definitely a bittersweet ending.


message 5: by Melissa (last edited Aug 29, 2014 10:51AM) (new)

Melissa Why are there MF books on here? Like Karen Marie Moning. Even the blurbs are MF. Nalini Singh is on here as well. The books selected aren't and based on the blurbs not MM.


message 6: by Adara (last edited Aug 20, 2015 07:19PM) (new)

Adara I accidentally added Momentos: Mick's Journey a second time. Please remove the last one.

For that matter, it doesn't exactly end happy...


message 7: by Adara (new)

Adara If these are supposed to have happy endings, then Infected: Bloodlines definitely shouldn't be on here. Probably not One More Soldier either.


message 8: by Moomba (last edited May 04, 2017 05:05AM) (new)

Moomba Is it just me or is there something seriously wrong with the numbering of this list? Many numbers are double, some (400) even more than that. Please check.

All the ones that have the same numbers have the same "score" so I guess the number is a tie for that place?


Kelly H. (Maybedog) Yes. If you look at the number of books at that number, the book with the next number down is that many places away. Mean if there are 4 books with the number 250, the next book should be number 254.

I definitely agree Bloodlines is really sad. I couldn't read it knowing the ending and had to skip that one. I haven't read the other.


message 12: by Melanie~~ (new)

Melanie~~ #249 Beyond the Highland Mist by Karen Marie Moning is not a gay novel. It should be removed from this list.


message 13: by Olivia (new)

Olivia Hi,
I removed Beyond the Highland Mist an not M/M book.
Also I'm removing these, as I've read them, and there's definitely no happy ending there:
Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx
Always by Kindle Alexander
Violence Begets... by P.T. Denys
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

Any other suggestions?

#479 Captured by the Highlander is M/F
#486 Highlander Untamed is M/F
