Romance 101: LGBT Romance + Giveaway

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!



Under the Covers is graciously giving away

Every day you get a chance to enter to win a different book!

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.


I don’t have a fave as yet

“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.

I can’t pick just one!

Maximoff and Farrow from the Like Us series by Krista & Becca Ritchie


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


They aren’t the main characters but I really like jerry and aidan from the aisling grimlock series.

Laura Lovejoy Brunk

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.
