VOTE NOW for your M/M Romance Favourites of 2013

2013

This genre continues to amaze me on a daily basis, there are some incredibly talented authors that deliver outstanding works of fiction and 2013 has been another AMAZING year for us M/M readers.

The M/M Team, Mark, myself and our two Guest Reviewers Macky and Tina have compiled our favourites for 2013… to be revealed on 10th January. They are the books that moved us, made us laugh, cry, squirm, cringe and definitely in my case shouting more than a few expletives at my Kindle! We have all read those books that make us feel all is right with the world and the books that you can’t bare to turn the last page knowing the end is nigh, which is far more traumatic than the excitement of the conclusion and those darn books that you just can’t put down, then end up pulling an all-nighter… yeah… you know what I mean!!!

Well now it’s your turn… enter your favourites in the categories below and let us know which books and authors ROCKED YOUR WORLD in 2013. Then enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win an M/M Kindle ebook of your choice.

 

Note for your Diaries

On the 10th January we will be bringing you the best of 2013 ~ Ours and YOURS… and a celebration of 2013 cannot go out with a whimper… no, we here at SSBR go out with a BANG, so we will also run a giveaway, giving YOU our readers the chance to win a Kindle Paperwhite with a choice of 5 ebooks from the Best of lists, as a way of THANKS… for all your support and well wishes during 2013, we couldn’t do it without you.

Monique, Mark, Tina & Macky

  42. I didn't read a lot of M/M, but I became addicted to Abigail Roux's writing in all the books of her Cut & Run series. Although not technically M/M books, my favorites still are the Tiffany Reisz's books, with wonderful scenes with both Soren & Kingsley or Griffin & Michael, especially in The Prince...
