Welcome to this week’s hot new releases, 99c deals, and freebies in gay romance! We have a good list this week with a bunch of freebies, some new releases I’ve been looking forward to, and one 99c deal.
I have recommendations for some books that I’ve read or are enthusiastic about, and others that are lesser or unknown to me, we’ll list with just the blurb. Hope this makes everyone happy!
All deals are valid as of posting in the US and most of the time the UK, but they may not be valid later or in all Amazon stores. Please check the price before buying!
This is not a paid list or ads, but simply deals I’ve found and books I’m excited about reading, so all personal recommendations from me. If you have a book you’d like to see listed, you can submit it, but that’s not a guarantee I’ll list it.
Tanner – Shaw Montgomery
Recommendation: When the queen of sweet kink ventures into alpha/omega territory, I’m paying attention, haha. Can’t wait to read this.
Tanner is smart, wealthy, and head over heels for his administrative assistant. That doesn’t mean he’s going to do anything about it, though. Some gambles are just too big for an omega to take, even one who seems to have it all. Omegas are supposed to be family-oriented, go-getters at work, and equal in every way. The one thing they’re not supposed to be is submissive.
Shane is organized, built like a tank, and passionate about making his boss’s life easier. He also might be in love with Tanner, but he’s always been careful to keep that safely tucked away. Tanner could be the perfect man, but he’s never even looked twice at Shane until secrets start coming to the surface.
When everything is riding on one confession, is the risk just too much? Find out in Tanner.
Story Contains: M/m sexual content, BDSM elements, non-shifter alpha/omega dynamics, edging, and spanking.
Author’s note: While future stories in this universe might contain mpreg, most books will not. Also, there is a free prequel to the series. You can find the link on the author’s site.
How to Belong with a Billionaire – Alexis Hall
Recommendation: Talk about a book that was highly anticipated! If you’ve read the first two books in this series, you’ll have been as eager for this one as I was. I haven’t read it yet, but I will this weekend! Hot billionaire with a ton of hang ups meets sweet, awkward college guy. Kink, angst, and a drawn out love story.
Don’t miss the epic conclusion to Caspian Hart and Arden St. Ives’ love story!
If you love someone, set them free…
I thought I’d be okay when Caspian Hart left. He was a brilliant, beautiful billionaire with a past he couldn’t escape. And I was … just me: an ordinary man lost in his own life. It would never have lasted. It should never have happened. Not outside a fairytale.
And I am okay. I’ve got my job, my family, my friends, and everything Caspian taught me. Except it turns out he’s going to marry his ex-boyfriend. A man who doesn’t understand him. A man who almost broke him. And I’ve finally realized it’s not enough for me to be happy. I need Caspian to be happy too.
Problem is, I’ve already done all I can to help him. I’ve followed his rules and broken his rules and learned his secrets. And he still won’t believe I can love him. So now it’s his turn. His turn to fight, and trust, and hope. It’s time for Caspian Hart to choose me.
The Arden St. Ives Series: How to Bang a Billionaire How to Blow it with a Billionaire How to Belong with a Billionaire.

Abandoning Ship – Susan Hawke
When the seas of love grow choppy, sometimes the best course is to abandon ship!
Two years ago, Ryan Abernathy was too tongue-tied, too introverted, and entirely too nervous to flirt with his hot but presumably straight new roommate. So when Ryan’s sister swooped in and scooped the hottie up for herself, he accepted his fate and kept his crush a secret.
Sawyer Muller never meant to find himself in a fake relationship with his sexy roommate’s sister. And how was he supposed to know that Ryan would become his bestie and star in way too many of his dreams?
Things get complicated when Julia Abernathy strikes a deal with Sawyer to upgrade from fake boyfriend to groom, though they only need to stay married long enough for her to get her trust fund. They plan a fun cruise ship wedding with her entire family in tow. Sawyer figures it sounds like an adventure, and when they quietly divorce later, he’ll finally be free of all the fakery.
With Julia and Ryan’s homophobic, snooty family present, the pressure is turned up… especially when Sawyer finds himself jilted at the altar and drowning in a sea of blame. His only life preserver is the Abernathy sibling he can’t admit to wanting… Ryan.
Abandoning Ship is an mm romantic comedy set in the Valentines Inc. world. Watch out for an awkward first kiss, a record-making group wedding, and sexy competitive shuffleboard. Before you board this ship, make sure you pack a fan because things are about to heat up on board this vessel!
Kel’s Keeper – K. C. Wells
Recommendation: Look, the cover alone would’ve been enough to buy this one, but a daddy and a virgin? I’m so down for that, haha.
When Kel Taylor’s life changes irrevocably, he finds himself alone in the world. He might have rebelled a little against his parents, but that didn’t mean he was ready to lose them. Unable to cope with his grief and feelings of guilt, he turns to booze, but before he hits rock bottom, someone dives into the murky waters to save him.
Luc Bryant watched Kel grow from the little kid whose football broke a pane in his greenhouse, into the sexy young man who sent heat racing through him. That was when Luc stopped watching and distanced himself, because he didn’t want to be that kind of a man. And that’s how things continued, until he saw to what depths the boy had sunk. Luc will be damned if he’ll let Kel kill himself. What Kel needs is a friend, and Luc’s shoulders are plenty big enough to bear his burdens.
Kel doesn’t need a friend. He needs a pair of strong arms to hold him, a broad chest to curl up against, someone to listen to him, someone who cares for him… and a whole lot more.
What he needs is a Daddy.
He just doesn’t know it yet.
Kel’s Keeper is a stand-alone book that contains an age gap relationship between a sexy daddy and a virgin.

Then his latest job walks into the bar with a strange gait and velvety Southern drawl.
Army veteran Logan Maddox has given a lot for freedom.
