Well, my first M/M book was The Angel by Tiffany Reisz-book 2 of The Original Sinners series-which I read simply because it was the second book of the series. Little did I know that it would snowball into an addiction. I continue to read M/M because I tend to shy away from melodrama which I find in abundance in traditional het romance. Generally speaking, men tend to assess a situation logically rather than emotionally which I can relate to. I appreciate people who are plain spoken rather than being passive aggressive. For whatever reason women protagonists tend to be portrayed as drama llamas which bores me. I have a hard time liking or relating to characters that overreact to everything or self create drama. I’ve found less of those antics in M/M romance. Plus, the idea of two (or more) men together-I’m not gonna lie-turns me on. I like the dynamics of a M/M relationship especially within a BDSM context. The idea of one submitting to the other and shedding traditional sex roles without reproach fascinates me.
What do I review here on Prism Book Alliance?
I cover the spectrum of M/M, M/M/F and even some F/F and preferably kinky. I admit it. I still read M/F sometimes. *ducks*
How do I decide what to review?
Generally speaking, I review everything I read, but for the purposes of the blog I tend to read things that interest me in some way. I’m really not that picky. I try to keep an open mind though I do have some hard limits.
Why Gay Lit and MM Romance?
I like the dynamics of same sex relationships. Well, truth be told I love angst in general and angst in a same sex relationship seems more authentic for some reason. Probably because the obstacles that same sex couples face are real not contrived as they seem to be in M/F romance.
How did you get started reading MM Romance? What was your first MM Romance book?
My first M/M book was The Angel by Tiffany Reisz. I haven’t looked back since. I’m still a little bit obsessed with Michael and Griffin. I’m so grateful that Ms. Reisz keeps me in short stories about them fairly regularly.
What is are you reading right now?
Making my way through the Cut & Run series by Abigail Roux. I’m tiny bit obsessed. I affectionately refer to the books as being sucked into TyandZanelandia.
What is next on the TBR pile?
I really want to read something from S.E. Jakes. I have several, I just have to find the time.
My Authors to Watch
Rachel Haimowitz- She can write torture with a heart like like nobody’s business. I also love that she can switch genres seamlessly and create an entire world from soup to nuts, so to speak.
Aleksandr Voinov- His ability to create character that, by all accounts, I shouldn’t like yet somehow he can make me love them.
Kim Dare- A writer who values putting the heartfelt emotions into BDSM.
Tiffany Reisz- My first M/M experience. Her abilities toward writing the mindf*ck are unsurpassed. You never get the full story in one book. Never.
Lisa Henry- I never feel ‘blah’ about her writing. It’s always an emotional experience
Joey W. Hill- I’m going to gush a little bit here, be forewarned. Her writing never fails to wrench emotion from me; it’s angst heavy and I’m a sucker for angst. Beyond that she takes the reader on the journey-constructs the entire world and makes flawed characters relatable, excepting her villains which are monstrous.
T.A. Webb- How does he pack so much into a short story??? Every time. Every single time.
Lyn Gala- The woman can appreciate leather and taught me the real meaning of bandana colors. Tip of the hat.
Rolf- He is heavily reliant upon psychology (my field) and, what can I say, I have a thing for cowboys.
maculategiraffe- Best slavefic series I’ve read and I’ve read my fair share.
Morgan Hawke- Interstellar Service and Discipline is a classic. I wish she’d write more of this series.
Chris Owen- The Deviations series continues to be one of the first series I recommend to those interested in BDSM. That barn! *swoon*
Finn Marlowe- She has the ability to take a topic which I might find either distasteful or far-fetched and make it captivating.
Taylor Donovan- Sam calls Mac “kitten”. Mac is about 6’5″/250lbs. “Kitten” indeed.
Lana McGregor- Very promising start to a career with His Roommate’s Pleasure.
