Romance (especially m/m romance) has turned out to be one of my favourite genres, which I still find strange as I used to avoid it like the plague!

I've read:

Maybe Someday (Maybe, #1) by Colleen Hoover Maybe Someday - Loved it, probably my favourite Colleen Hoover

The King (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #12) by J.R. Ward The King - As much as this series is ridiculous, I can't help but love it.

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover Ugly Love - Another Colleen Hoover, didn't wow me like some of hers but I still enjoyed it.

Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan Archer's Voice - Quite angsty but I thought it was beautifully written

Raw (RAW Family, #1) by Belle Aurora Raw - Totally over the top misunderstood-bad-boy but I enjoyed the craziness of it all.

The Backup Boyfriend (The Boyfriend Chronicles, #1) by River Jaymes The Backup Boyfriend - Oh so cute m/m romance, with some nice banter in there too :)

Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward Stepbrother Dearest - Very angsty but handled well

Play (Stage Dive, #2) by Kylie Scott Play - This series is a lot of fun, especially this book. Mal the MC is bloody hilarious.

Black Lies by Alessandra Torre Black Lies - Very clever

On my tbr is:
Beautiful Oblivion
Transcendence
Sweet Filthy Boy
Before Jamaica Lane

Funny, Lynn. Im just the opposite. I used to read a bunch of romance and I've moved away from it. I still like it occasionally though. :)

I was thinking that I might try to read Ugly Love, but it looks like you liked Maybe Someday a lot more. I might try that one instead. I'm curious which will win. Where I'm not a die-hard romance fan, I may or may not read the winner.

Valerie (darthval) | 411 comments When I was young, I was all about romance, but as an adult I tend to find it pretty silly.

However, this group has opened me back up to some romances that I've found light-hearted and entertaining.

The only one of the nominees that I've read was Sweet Filthy Boy, which I found to be sweet and sexy.
