Fairy / Anna I'm not sure if "As You Are" by Ethan Day should be on this list... There really was cheating?

If you consider kissing as cheating (God, now I'm thinking about Ty. Again) then there was cheating. And there was intent for more. Besides some divide cheating into two types: physical cheating and emotional one. So yeah, Danny definitely cheated on Julian and I think the book should stay on the list :)


message 3: by Hellen (new)

Hellen Emotional cheating is the worst. It's a physical pain. I can't stand it.


message 4: by Morgana (new)

Morgana Physical cheating sucks and makes me angry but emotional one is painful on another level. It kills me to see a person who's cheated on suffering. Definitely worst.


message 5: by Hellen (new)

Hellen Imagine MC #1 starts feeling something for another character that's not MC #2. Seriously, when there are feelings involved I stop reading.


message 6: by Fairy / Anna (last edited Oct 16, 2011 04:06PM) (new)

Fairy / Anna Probably you're right. But that book was so funny, that it almost didn't bother me. I mean, yes, it was rather sad at times, but still, I didn't feel like it was cheating. I know, I'm weird sometimes :P

In that case, it was "just" cheating with sex. But their relationship was more complicated. Rather friends with feelings, than real couple.


message 7: by Morgana (new)

Morgana Thanks for clarifying this to me, Hellen. Now the difference is clear. I try to avoid such books but you do not get everything from a blurb. Generally I do not abandon reading a book, even if I happen to encounter this type of cheating. But I should 'cause later I'm totally depressed. For days.


message 8: by Hellen (new)

Hellen It depends all on the relationship of the characters. Sometimes, one of the MCs doesn't mind just a kiss and sometimes all hell breaks loose lol

This author (B.J. Hudson) has a bunch of stories with cheating characters, and somehow I did enjoy her stories. It's one of my guilty pleasures, actually :)


message 9: by Morgana (last edited Oct 16, 2011 04:54PM) (new)

Morgana I think I'll pass. But who knows? Maybe I'll give it a try in the future, even if it later makes me feel like shit lol

Thanks for the suggestion..am gonna try the author...I really like this type where one cheats but then repents and tries to gain forgiveness and then HEA :P


message 11: by Hellen (last edited Dec 22, 2011 11:35AM) (new)

Hellen Oh nooo! Hudson's books are just for fun. PWP and all that. Don't waste your money on their books. Trust me.

ETA: try Immortality is the Suck :)


message 12: by Ayesha (new)

Ayesha OMG thanks for telling me... :D
It's just I'm waiting for a book like Bareback for so long :[


message 13: by Hellen (new)

Hellen I know. There are very few books. Only thing you can do is check every one of them and read reviews. You can also go to the group's cheating shelf.


message 14: by Ayesha (new)

Ayesha which group :O m/m romance??

I think you will like it; there's lot of repentance :)

My avatar is from Uraboku. Luka Crosszeria *drools*


message 18: by Ayesha (last edited Dec 22, 2011 12:24PM) (new)

Ayesha Thanks
and OMG just checked Uraboku in Wiki and definitely gonna watch this anime :D It's my type like Mirage of Blaze or Kuroshitsuji


message 19: by Hellen (new)

Hellen *add Mirage of Blaze to her list*
I was going to warn you that Uraboku is m/m. Silly of me :D


message 20: by Ayesha (new)

Ayesha Yayyy am so happy :D

and if u want I can give u a whole list of yaoi anime/manga ; they r ma favorite :D


message 21: by Hellen (new)

Hellen Mine too ^^ I wouldn't be reading m/m if it weren't for yaoi manga. Right now I'm watching Sekaiichi Hatsukoi and so far it's great!

I'd love to hear new recs :)


message 22: by Ayesha (new)

Ayesha OMG I got to know about m/m through yaoi too; otherwise I wouldn't even know it existed. Sekaiichi Hatsukoi manga is good and anime is better :D U can also try "U r my loveprize in viewfinder", "Haru Wo Daiteita", "Fake" and ofcourse Junjou Romantica anime


message 23: by Hellen (new)

Hellen Ohh I gotta watch "Haru Wo Daiteita" and "Fake". Thank you!

Have you watched Ai no Kusabi?


message 24: by Ayesha (new)

Ayesha About "Haru Wo Daiteita" and "Fake" - watch the ovas first then read the manga; the mangas r awesome; and add Kizuna too :D
Yeah I've watched Ai No Kusabi; so good yet so tradgic :[ the remake supposed to be come out this year; don't think it has come out yet


message 25: by Hellen (new)

Hellen That's great. I have all night to watch them. Thank you ^^

Ai no Kusabi will come out in January or February. I can't wait. :D Togainu no Chi is awesome too, but there's not enough hotness.


message 26: by Ayesha (new)

Ayesha Togainu no Chi? definitely have to watch this :D


message 27: by Nikko (new)

Nikko Does getting a blowjob considered cheating??


message 28: by Ayesha (new)

Ayesha If he already has a lover then definitely :P


message 29: by Hellen (new)

Hellen Oh yes.


Kelly H. (Maybedog) Are these just books where one MC is already with the other MC and cheats on him, or are they also ones where one MC cheats on his wife to be with the other MC? Oddly, I can cope with the first one better than the second because I need there to be remorse and usually in the latter it's not seen as a bad thing, usually the woman deserves it. It just makes me hate the MC. It's why I wanted Adrien to leave Jake for so long.

I can't remember who Jake was seeing first, or I would have the answer to my question by looking at the list.
