    Best Gay Romance Book Recommendations: Half Moon Chambers, Into This River I Drown, Catch a Ghost, Chaos Magic

    This week’s Best Gay Romance Book Recommendations from Solange has it all.

    *said in my best Stefon voice*

    From a hard-ass *heh* cop to a hardcore sadist to angsty emotions, you’ll get it all wrapped in man love, mixing in a little pain with your pleasure.

    Oh, and a character with some down-there piercings. That’s always fun.

    Half Moon Chambers by Harper Fox

    ★★★★★

    Favorite Quote:
    “I didn’t know why these touches of his to my cheek, to my mouth, undid me so. I wanted them to go on forever. They were burningly intimate, between two men who barely knew one another, and no other lover had wanted to spend that much time with me that far above the waist.”

    Heat Rating: Molten
    Genre: Suspense
    Series: Standalone

    Solange Says:
    A hard-ass cop with a bullet lodged in his spine stripped of all his dreams. An ex-junkie who can only paint when he’s drugged up to his eyeballs. Angst, hurt, comfort, heart ache, mind-blowing sex. Half Moon Chambers has everything, everything I could possibly ask for. This book is my favorite Harper Fox and I want to make sweet, sweet love to this author’s mind. She never fails to deliver the angst I crave. I am seething with jealousy that you can all read this for the first time, while my copy is dog-eared and falling apart. I need a drink. *sob* [/box_light] [box_light]

    Into This River I Drown by TJ Klune

    ★★★★★

    Favorite Quote:
    How would it feel to live a full life and have no one remember it, to have no one remember the extraordinary things you accomplished, even if it was just waking up every day and finding the courage to get out of bed?

    Heat Rating: Molten
    Genre: Modern Romance – Paranormal
    Series: Standalone

    Solange Says:
    Has anyone seen the movie Melancholia by Lars Von Trier? Do you remember how breathtaking the beginning of that movie was? That’s what this entire book is like. Into This River I Drown is not an easy, quick read. It takes you deep and it doesn’t let you breathe until the very end. Benji’s grief will strangle you, the enormity of it is overwhelming. But the return investment is amazing. For the full effect I’d advise you to dive into this without reading any spoilers. Try it. You’ll soon find you’re not in Kansas anymore.[/box_light] [box_light]

    Catch a Ghost (Hell or High Water) by S.E. Jakes

    ★★★★

    + Favorite Quotes:
    “Prophet’s climax was like a gathering storm, swirling furiously, thunderously fast and uncontrolled, part wrath, part beauty, mixed with a little pain, and oh fuck, yes.”

    “Tom came on the heels of Prophet’s climax like a scream in the night.”

    Motherhugger, I could not put Catch a Ghost down. PTSD done right, undercover ops that make sense, hurt/comfort that’ll make you shiver and two of the most delightful broken boys I’ve encountered so far. And the sequel comes out in two weeks, hell yes. Oh, did I mention Tom has several piercings in very interesting places?[/box_light] [box_light]

    Chaos Magic by Jay Lygon

    ★★★★

    Favorite Quote:
    “I tried to speak several times, but my ability to think ended where his fingertips stroked my prostate.”

    Heat Rating: Nuclear
    Genre: BDSM; Fantasy
    Series: Part of a Series—Gods and Chaos

    Oh, now this! This baby is interesting. A rare BDSM rec from me, smut lovers. Not because I don’t like the genre, but because I very rarely come across something that measures up to this Greek-tragedy-meets-urban-fantasy. The Dom is a true sadist and he is far from perfect. The sub, Sam, needs to be dominated but his past brings Fear with a capital F to mess things up. This isn’t for the faint of heart but if you love BDSM, Chaos Magic is for you. (Just in case: Warning for severe past abuse and not the good kind.)[/box_light]
