    There have been some really good books this year. Some that stick out to me are:
    Whispers – Emmett Skipper (made me ugly cry)
    It’s Christmas Everywhere but Here – Liam Grey ( the story felt so real)
    Lifting Techniques – Charlie Richards
    Caged Sanctuary – Tempeste O’Riley

    There are many more but these came to mind. Thanks for posting your favorites. Happy New Year

      It felt like I sent the month of december bullying everyone i know into reading It’s Christmas Everywhere But Here, so I am really happy to see when other people say they loved it as well.

    This is always so hard to answer. There were so many good books.
    Loving Jay by Renae Kaye was very enjoyable. Out of all of your favorites I’ve only read about 5 of them. That means I have a HUGE list to choose from. Thanks! 🙂

      Oops I meant KJ Charles not KJ Harper. Although I read Kaje Harper’s The Rebuilding Year which was another favorite top read this year but it was not published in 2014

      Harper, Klune, and Charles made my short list for my favorites, though they lost out for top six. Cutting down the list from my top ten was almost physically painful since they were all really great books.

    Beneath the Stain by Amy Lane & Take by Ella Frank are probably my top 2 reads of the year.

    I am pretty new to the M/M genre, but I have read so many awesome books this year! My favs are Hell or High Water series by SE Jakes, THIRDS by Charlie Cochet, Cut and Run by Abi Roux and Try/Take by Ella Frank. All I know is there is a lot to look forward to in 2015!

    My favourite book this year has to be The Mating of Michael by Eli Easton. I totally agree with Vicki. It moved me and found it make me think. I love books that do that. I have now become a huge fan of Eli’s.

    Thank you so much! I try not to play favorites, but Carissa’s review of Summoner of Storms is one of my favorite reviews of the book and series, because it really made me feel like I’d achieved what I set out to with the series. <3
