Let’s start another one of my t-rific post series, shall we?
*Why yes, Kris, that’s sounds fantabulous and totally in line with your awesome self.*
*blushes* I know.
Love it or hate it, there’s no arguing that the ‘gay for you’ (GFY) theme is super *Get it! Too funny.* popular and, unless there is a very discriminating apocalypse, here to stay.
I am firmly in the ‘think it’s terrific… when it works’ camp and I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favourite GFY stories. I think I might surprise some people with my choices. *g*
Here, we go…
And Call Me In The Morning by Willa Okati. This book provides the double whammy for me; combining friends to lovers *Yep, I’ll be doing a ‘best of’ on this one too. :)* and GFY. I really enjoyed the fact that the characters in this were older and, as a result, seemed to deal with their attraction to and feelings towards each other much more maturely. The story is paced so that the reader can steadily explore the change in relationship dynamic along with the men. It offers something totally different and is a lovely read.
Cut & Run by Madeleine Urban & Abigail Roux. What’s not to like about a well written action-packed, suspense thriller with complicated and damaged heroes. I just read a review by rw2113 on ARe about this which says ‘Their intimacy comes from their connection, not their orientation.’ I think that’s a perfect way to describe it as Ty and Zane connect with each other despite themselves. It’s fascinating to watch them do so fully aware of what’s happening albeit begrudgingly. I adore this book muchly.
Heaven by Jet Mykles. Hello?? Seriously, when you think of this topic, how can you not choose this book. Why it works? From the outset, the author establishes an unbelievable, not to mention undeniable, smoking hot attraction between Johnnie and Tyler. The two protags appear to be totally captivated by one another from the first moment they meet and this is followed by a relationship that moves beyond just hot sex. It’s great stuff… and hot. I mentioned that right. 😉
So, what about you? Do you like GFY? If so, what’s your fave story/ies?
