BEST GAY ROMANCE BOOKS/ LGBTQ+ ROMANCE BOOKS –Love was meant to be celebrated. To be felt. Love is when two people make each other feel what they never have felt before, love is selfless yet so selfish.

*No I’m (not) in love. I’ve heard it somewhere.*

But was it about particularly a man and a woman falling in love?

Even if it was, there’s pretty much a lot of evidence that the previous “trend” has outdated, and now, no one binds the pure feelings of love into mere “genders“.

Anyways, no wonders there are numerous gay romance books or LGBTQ+ romance books people can read, whenever they want to broaden their mindset and to sometimes see, how actually love works and how love has no bounds.

The Prophets by Robert Jones Jr.| Gay Romance Books

The author Robert Jones Jr.; born and brought up in New York city wrote his first book The Prophets which came out recently this year on January 5 [2021].

T Magazine‘s cover story “Black Male Writers of Our Time.” The Prophets is his debut novel. However, this is the author’s debut novel, he is already established as a blogger, essayist, cultural critic.

The Prophets is historical fiction and is based on Isaiah and Samuel. Both, deep in LOVE.

(I’m not jealous or anything but it would seriously make me happy if someone deeply loved me… ah! Sweet lord! Anyways.)

There’s just something about them that makes everyone happy. What ‘they‘ are is not confirmed yet but they sure know each other and love one another very well.

Isaiah and Samuel are two enslaved men on a plantation in the antebellum South. Like, a fairy tale?

But every fairy tale has its own demon, Isaiah and Samuel’s has theirs. A fellow planter wanted to gain favor and preached his poisonous master and now, the eternal love of the both is no longer “love”.

The authenticity of the book is visible when you see its book cover. “LOVE” is not needed to be bound in genders as mentioned before.

Detransition baby by Torry Peters| Gay romance books| LGBTQ+ romance books

This is the Debut book of the author Torry Peters and was published on 12th Jan 2021 and is a transgender romance fiction in the genre.

This LGBTQ+ romance book revolves around these three women: Resse, Amy, and Katrina. Resse and Amy were in a relationship and both are trans women but the Story starts with them not being together anymore. (well that’s sad)

Now Resse is kind of sort of struggling in her life because of her breakup (breakups sure suck!) with Amy. She’s now lonely and she is trying different ways to cope with it.

On the other hand, we have Amy who gets De-transitioned into a cisman after the breakup and becomes Ames, and now he’s in a relationship with a Ciswoman, Katrina.

He is still in love with her ex-girlfriend (tbh, STOP GETTING IN NEW RELATIONSHIPS IF YOU’RE NOT OVER THE LAST ONES!) and can’t get her off his mind. As the Story progress, we find that Ames gets Katrina pregnant who may or may not want to keep the baby and that’s when everything starts changing.

Change is fine. But is it For the good or bad? Well, for that you need to read the LGBTQ+ romance book “Detransition, baby” to find it.
