Hi! It’s almost fall and while the temp outside in Michigan is far from autumnal, both of us are already starting to think about how to fill our time when we’re driven back indoors. Writing is definitely on the must-have survival list for winter hibernation, and we need some amazing books to add too. So we want to hear from you!
We’ll tell you some of our favorites in different genres. Then comment below to recommend your favorites in those same genres or any of your other favorites. We’ll pick one random commenter to win a $10 Amazon giftcard to stock their own Kindle as the days shorten.
Athletes: Tigers and Devils by Sean Kennedy, Caught Running by Abigail Roux and Madeline Urban, Counterpunch by Aleksandr Voinov, Quarterback Sneak by Pepper Espinoza, Str8te Boys by Evangeline Anderson, Striker by KyAnn Waters, Sno Ho by Ethan Day… Most of my favorites are in this subgenre and I read a lot of them, so I’m always DYING for new, good recs!!
Sci-Fi: Bone Rider by J Fally, and the PsyCop series by Jordan Castillo Price
Contemporary: The Thomas Elkins series by N.R. Walker (ok, let’s be real, anything by N.R. Walker), the Sidewinder Series by Abigail Roux, the Temptation series by Ella Frank
Outside of the MM Romance/Erotica genre, I love Nalini SIngh’s Guild Hunter series and Immortals After Dark by Kresley Cole, most horror (Kin by Kealan Patrick Burke is one of my all time favorites!), and books that challenge my view of the world (like The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell).
But really, if you can suggest an athlete book I haven’t read and that’s five-star worthy, then you pretty much own my soul.
Athletes: I’m totally with Sam on TIgers and Devils. I think I’ve read it ten times!! Out of Position by Kyell Gold.
Contemporary: Hands down Nowhere Ranch, Special Delivery or anything else by Heidi Cullinan *pauses for fangirl moment* Nothing Ever Happens by Sue Brown, Strawberries for Dessert by Marie Sexton also make my list.
BDSM: Love the Deviations series by Chris Owen, Handcuffs and Leather by Kim Dare, Dark Angel Sounding by Habu, and I highly, highly recommend the Master Chronicles by Jamie Craig if you like a little paranormal with your naughty.
Gay Fiction: Woke Up in a Strange Place by Eric Arvin, Lord John and the Private Matter by Diana Gabaldon
Outside the MM Genre I’d have to go with: Immortals After Dark by Kresley Cole (especially A Hunger Like No Other), Midnight Breed Series by Lara Adrian, King Henry VIII by Margaret George, Door To December by Dean Koontz and The Stand by Stephen King.
Okay, your turn! Help us fill up our Kindles with some great recs.
Until next month, happy reading!!
Meet Sam McAuley
Sam sleeps little, reads a lot. Happiest in a foreign country. Twitchy when not mentally in motion. Send her a picture and a song and she's bound to write a story about it. And yes, that's an invitation.
Meet Jo Peterson
SJD Peterson, better known as Jo, hails from Michigan. Not the best place to live for someone who hates the cold and snow. When not reading or writing, Jo can be found close to the heater checking out NHL stats and watching the Red Wings kick a little butt. Can't cook, misses the clothes hamper nine out of ten tries, but is handy with power tools.
Each week, on our Wednesday Author Column posts we will gift to one lucky commenter answering the authors question, a Kindle eBook from your TBR list. This month, Sam and Jo are also giving you the chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card. So two winners, two great prizes!
