Romance 101: LGBT Romance + Giveaway

Posted February 16, 2019 by Annie in Front Page, Random Thoughts, Under the Covers / 15 Comments

Valentine’s Day is almost here and we thought, what better way to celebrate than to talk about Romance!  We are starting a new series where we will be covering all topics related to the romance genre.  Kicking things off this week we will talk about subgenres, tropes and character types and give you some recommendations along the way.  This will be perfect for the newbie romance reader feeling a bit overwhelmed about where to start.  But maybe it may have some information that you may not have been clear on if you’re a seasoned romance reader.  After this week, this will become a monthly feature so please be sure to let us know what other topics you’d like us to cover!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

If I’m not mistaken I’ve only read one book that included a M/M romance and that was Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda which doesn’t actually focus on the romance. I definitely want to read some from this genre.

Depending on the book, I think one of my favorite MM couples is: Jared and Matt from marie Sexton’s Promises. I have several that I adore after reading their stories.

“Leave a comment and tell us your favorite LGBT couple.” Hmm. I don’t know. Ryan and Seth on “The O.C.” needed to be together. It was destiny. Why didn’t that show ever tell us the truth about their journey?

That’s a tough one. I have a few authors I love in this genre. I love One Call Away by Felice Stevens. Oren and Noah are such a good couple. And one of the first M/M books was Hot Head by Damon Suede. Dante and Griff are so sweet and so confused. Their love story was an emotional roller coaster! And I love Tara Lain’s stories. Jeez! I can’t pick just one!

Definitely Griff and Dante (though Admael and Jonathan from Clare London’s SAY A LITTLE PRAYER are also wonderful).

Im a huge fan of the M/M romance. Im a sucker for angst and the emotions that go with that. Some of my favorites are Ella Frank and Ella with BFF Brook Blaine, Jordan Castillo Price PsyCop series and Kindle Alexander many series.
