Best Novels with Non-Explicit Gay Romance

Add/vote books with no sex scenes or implied sex scenes between the main characters.
Books with mild sexual content are okay as long as they emphasize emotional sensations rather than physical sensations.

Only fiction titles featuring a male/male relationship.

message 1: by Lori (new)

Lori If you like YA M/M Romance or M/M Romance that is not page after page of sex, be sure and check out the YA M/M Romance group.


message 2: by Carycleo (new)

Carycleo Where Flows the Water, by Sean Michael, is explicit according to the blurb and at least one posted review. It doesn't really belong on this list.


message 3: by Hellen (new)

Hellen Cut&Run is also explicit as far as I remember...


message 4: by Fehu (new)

Fehu My Fair Captain (Sci-Regency #1) is pretty explicit....


message 5: by willaful (new)

willaful All Through the Night: A Troubleshooter Christmas isn't graphic, but sex scenes are definitely more than implied.


message 6: by Charming (new)

Charming Fatal Shadows has explicit sex, just not with the eventual love interest.


message 7: by Susan A (new)

Susan A The Engineered Throne is sex free until the 80% mark, then it becomes quite explicit


message 8: by Eli (new)

Eli Easton The Making of Michael has explicit sex scenes (multiple).


message 9: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Posts above have been dealt with.


message 10: by Bitchie (last edited Oct 18, 2016 03:50PM) (new)

Removed.
