What's the Deal with M/M?

You may have noticed that the m/m romance genre really seems to be picking up steam these days.  Lover at Last was one of the most highly anticipated PNRs of the year.... and over at DABWAHA, Stars & Stripes is kicking ass and taking names, beating out Nalini Singh's Archangel's Storm for a spot in the final four.

I am thrilled by this development.  Especially the popularity of Stars & Stripes.  Abigail Roux is the gold standard for m/m romance, IMO.  I love the Cut & Run books; it's one of my favorite romance series of any subgenres... and I want to share the love with you!

For no other reason than the fact that I love these books and I want you to try them, I am giving away winner's choice of any ebook in the series.  The giveaway is international, anywhere I can gift a Kindle, Nook, or Kobo book.

If you're new to the series, check out my review of Cut & Run for more deets.  The best part about this series: each book gets progressively better.

Convinced yet? There is no reason not to give them a try now.  Or if you're already a fan, remember Touch & Geaux (aka The Soul Crusher) is out this week!

Just enter the Rafflecopter form below!

You can select any book from this list as your prize.

I've been reading m/m for a couple of years now. I'm glad that more people are getting into reading it. I think it's a great to have more genre's to read and why not m/m. I think m/m or LGBT romance stories are even more passionate, hotter and sexier than the m/f genre of romance stories.

I've been reading it for a while. It started as reading M/F/M or M/M/F and then went to M/M. I guess my feelings are all about the story and characters. Their sexual preference is not an issue. I just want a good story with characters that I enjoy and make me want to care about them.

After seeing you petting one of those book in NOLA I added them to my TBR. I just need to find the time to read them. Thank you for the opportunity.

I am sure this is not true, but to me the feelings of the characters in M/M books are more real... reading F/M it's usually clichés after clichés. Most M/M books I've read are more raw, that's why I stick to to it.

I'm loving the popularity of m/m romance. I wish we'd get more f/f as well.

I'm thrilled with it. I am a big supporter of all genres so to see this lesser read one pick up some steam is great!

I'm fairly new to M/M romance genre but I love it, it's great to see it becoming more popular! What's not to love? ;)

I've just started reading m/m books but I know already hat I want more! lol I've heard so many good things about this series lately. I'd love to read it!

I haven't read many m/m books but I used to read TONS of slash fanfiction... I think it's great that more m/m (or generally gay/queer) stories are finding their way into a more mainstream area! Thanks for the chance to win :)

I am very intrigued but I haven't tried any out yet. I honestly don't need another genre to glom. My wishlist is already out of control.

I just finished reading Lover At Last and it was my first M/M book. I enjoyed it quite a bit so I might check these books out. Thanks for the recommendation and the chance to win!

I think that Lover at Last will open the door to the main stream readers that have not tried the M/M genre.
I'm currently in the middle of book 2 in the Cut & Run series, Sticks & Stones and I'm loving it.

It's not really about two gay guys. It's about two FBI agents that fall in love, they just happen to be guys.

I agree! If you have not read the Cut & Run series you should. They don't focus on the guys being gay but two people attracted to each other. Love it!

I have been a fan of M/M for a few years now. I am so excited to see it hitting more mainstream!

I don't read that much m/m, but when I do, I love how the authors don't feel constrained with their characters, unlike m/f where the guys are always alpha, and the women are always gorgeous and perfect.

I recently read Cut & Run and loved it. It's the story and the characters that matter, not that they are m/m or m/f. We all hope to fall in love with someone no matter who we are. I will be reading more m/m and I can't wait to read book 2.

I read stars and stripes. I want this new one so so so badly. And, yeah, I've been a M/M fan for a few years now.

Just started reading m/m romance last year and love it! I think Cut & Run really help me crossover into this genre and I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

I'm a big fan of m/m and would love to see it go more mainstream. Some wonderful books out there. :)

I just started the M/M genre last year and I am loving it. I mean, there is just something about two guys that is hot as hell and just so beautiful with the romance as well!

I think that it's great to see m/m romances on the rise. I also hope it makes people more comfortable with f/f and other "non traditional" romances - and I'm not talking about the 50 Shades bandwagon. I can only hope it helps spread tolerance ... it's a big hope! Thanks for the giveaway!

I'm a newbie to m/m but I keep hearing about this series and I'm really interested.

I have read a few m/m romances and enjoyed them. I have been hearing so much about this series and can't wait to get started reading them!

I have been reading MM for a few years exclusively and I love it! I can only hope more people begin to read it. I think it really brings a new light to some of the LGBT issues of today.

I've been reading M/M romance for about 5 years now. However I've never read a M/M novel until this year when I started the Cut & Run series. I think it's good that it's becoming more popular and moving away from being taboo.

Not heard of this series until dabwaha started. Sounds like I need to start it soon. Thanks for the giveaway.

I've been reading M/M for several years now and I love the genre. I haven't tried this particular series yet, but it's on my list!

I think it's exciting that M/M romance is beginning to reach more people. They will hopefully enjoy reading it as much as I have, and I hope it opens hearts to more love and equality.
