Why I Read M/M ~ An Introduction to Christine

bitaviWhy I read M/M Romance?

I read m/m romance because it provides me with a completely different perspective on romance, that of two men who love each other. Growing up in (and returning as an adult to) a small town in a very conservative area, my connection with gay men has been very limited. This genre celebrates the beauty of male homosexuality and has allowed me to explore relationships with people of more diverse experiences and backgrounds outside of the isolated bubble in which I currently live. I have connected with several authors (both male and female) who have been welcoming, gracious, and generous with their time. I simply adore the books I read and have a passion for sharing that love with others, taking immense pleasure in recommending and promoting the authors of this particular genre and its community.

My Authors to Watch

There are so many authors I simply go crazy over, but those I put at the top of the list are:

Edmond Manning – never cookie-cutter, always surprising, and a sheer joy to get to know. Edmond takes his readers on a journey of imagery and delight, and I will read anything he writes. Even a grocery list.
AJ Rose – A compelling author with a style that keeps me turning the pages. His characters are extremely likable, and he weaves suspense and romance in a very balanced way. Great BDSM scenes, too!
Abigail Roux – Ah, Ty and and Zane! What can I say? I love the Cut and Run series, but I have also enjoyed other books by this very appealing author. Love the banter between her characters!
TJ Klune – Very few authors make me laugh out loud like TJ Klune. He simply knows how to bring hilarity to dialogue and writes such unique and interesting characters.
Theo Fenraven – I have ready pretty much everything Theo has written. His stories tend to run on the shorter side, but they are always different, with unique and diverse characters and themes.
Amy Lane – Amy is a comfort author for me, and I love the snuggly warmth that tends to flow through her stories. She writes just enough conflict to make things interesting, and it’s always a pleasure to watch the relationships between her characters develop.
Aleksandr Voinov – He’s edgy, violent, and dark. I love the vulnerability of his characters, even amidst the raw brutality in which they exist and many times perpetuate. I haven’t read enough of him, truly.
