Below, you’ll find my favorite MM Romance books, and many of my fellow listeners agree with me that these are among the best M/M Romance audiobooks out there!
I absolutely love M/M. I have to admit though, for a long time, this was a part of the Romance genre I refused to touch. It felt like Men loving Men and gay Romance got hyped by readers a whole lot more than Women loving Women and lesbian books. And it somehow felt like these two were in competition for M/F readers and listeners. Fortunately, I was wrong!
In the last couple of years, queer Romance books of all varieties are getting a lot more attention. And Romance fans can find more gay Romance books written by gay men!
There are so many amazing authors of MM Romance books out there that I wouldn’t want to miss out on anymore. So, without further proclamations and explanations, I give you a whole bunch of absolutely beautiful MM Romance books – some scorchingly hot ones, some sweet ones, some super funny ones, and some angsty ones. Two guys for every mood!

I’m not entirely sure I would call PK, the hero of Book Boyfriend, my new book boyfriend. He sure is… a lot! But that’s the thing, he is absolutely, disarmingly himself! Book Boyfriend is a wonderfully fun, heartwarming meta Romance about a guy who can’t tell his best friend that he’s in love with him. So instead, he writes a Romance novel about a guy who is in love with his best friend. Pete Cross brought it all to life so charmingly! I’m a big fan of Kris Ripper and zir adorable queer rom-coms.

I’m So Not Over You is a super fun Romantic Comedy! It’s a second chance meets fake dating storyline which is already a winner trope combo in my opinion. It’s solely from the point of view of Kian who is an extremely likable protagonist. He is at the same time a person with many insecurities but also has a very sharp tongue that gets him in trouble quite a few times. Hudson, Kian’s ex, asks him to pretend to still be his boyfriend for a cousin’s wedding – a huge affair since Hudson’s family is very rich. Personally, I really liked that Kian and Hudson didn’t break up over one big misunderstanding, as we see so often. Instead, we learn more about Hudson through Kian’s eyes and it’s explained between the lines why things happened the way they happened, how, sometimes, you can be meant for each other but still not get things right the first time around. The narration by Timothy Bell Reese was absolutely fantastic and had a big part in me enjoying this audiobook so thoroughly!
Troy is a Hockey player who chose to stay in the closet. The homophobic slurs he encounters in games put him off any thoughts of coming out. But Harris, the out-and-proud social media manager of his new team, is too fascinating. So, Troy keeps seeking Harris’ company. This book made me tear up because it was so insanely sweet! I loved how the two guys talked with each other. Their relationship journey is insanely sweet and moving! Troy is the kind of tortured hero you just can’t help but love. He comes so far in this book! Cooper North is a wonderful narrator and the perfect fit for this audiobook.
Going Public is a wonderful, slightly suspenseful MM Romance novel about a millionaire who’s a bit of a player and his demisexual virgin assistant. I loved how these tropes were handled here, how the two men treat each other so respectfully and always consider the other’s wishes and experiences. They know each other so well and are very considerate and careful with each other. It’s intensely romantic! That together with the additional suspenseful plot made this an all-around entertaining story. And I absolutely adored the narration by Tyler Tetsuda!
Crimes of Passion
written by Jack Harbon
narrated by Kevin Free and Ron Butler
Crimes of Passion is a super fun audio short story by Jack Harbon in Audible Plus. It’s an enemies to lovers Romance about two true crime podcasters who want to honor a shared fan with a collaboration. While working together, they both try to give the other one the benefit of the doubt but their rivalry runs deep. This book is brought to life by two of the best audiobook narrators, Kevin Free and Ron Butler, who both have an incredible range of voices and are wonderful to listen to!

And Dev doesn’t really understand what’s going wrong, since he finds Charlie incredibly attractive! His new task is to coach Charlie to be a true Prince Charming in front of the camera. And the two have to spend a whole lot of time alone for this. The Charm Offensive is a super entertaining Romantic Comedy, narrated by the wonderful Vikas Adam, Graham Halstead, and Cassandra Campbell.
Boyfriend Material was one of my favorite books of 2020 and is the book I have most often recommended ever since. In my opinion, this is one of the best gay Romance novels out there and the narration by Joe Jameson is fantastic! Both during my first, second, and third time listening to it, Luc, Oliver, and their fantastic group of friends and co-workers have managed to make me laugh out loud countless times. If you are in need of an absolutely adorable Romantic Comedy, this witty, hilarious, and simply wonderful Fake Relationship M/M Romance is the perfect choice and will certainly make you very happy indeed!
Work For it is a steamy M/M Romance between a small town hermit and a tourist from London who seems to have it all. Griffin is very isolated and yet he doesn’t seem to be willing to leave his hometown. Then Olu arrives and the two clash! Olu brings out the passionate side of stoic Griffin. While Griffin makes Olu question his own form of self-inflicted isolation. This is an insanely passionate, complex, and deep love story by Talia Hibbert, the author of The Brown Sisters series! The audiobook is narrated by Shane East and Chance Thoreau and it is great to hear this dual point of view story narrated by two different voice actors.
Quell is probably straight and most definitely a movie star… and dealing with depression. When he wants to bring his favorite book to the screen, gay costar Hale becomes his rock. Unscripted is an extremely emotional Friends to Lovers story and narrators Joel Leslie and John Solo perfectly bring to life the thoughts, feelings, and insecurities of Quell and Hale. This is such a beautiful Romance duology and Unscripted was one of my favorite audiobooks of 2020!
Desta travels to Ethiopia for a work assignment where he meets Elias. Together, they explore the country, their past, their future, and their growing feelings for one another. Adriana Herrera is one of my favorite LGBTQ Romance authors and the storyline in Finding Joy is just as beautiful as the book cover! Braeden Sinclair did a wonderful narration.
I simply love books about books! And Booklover does its title justice. A Romance-book-obsessed soon-to-be-librarian who is also a farmer meets a bookstore employee who organizes a Romance book club. It’s so wonderful! This audiobook is hot, captivating, romantic, and a little bit suspenseful. And Cooper North and Tim Paige are great narrators who really brought the two guys to life.

The openly gay Crown Prince of England, Edgar, falls for one Carter Ogden, an event planner from New Jersey. The Palace isn’t pleased and Carter doesn’t exactly take to a life in the royal spotlight with all its rules and regulations. Playing The Palace is a sweet and fun Gay Romantic Comedy that I can wholeheartedly recommend! Michael Urie did a spot-on narration and really brought out the humor.
written by Riley Hart
narrated by Michael Dean
Elijah asks his frenemy neighbor to help him get the guy of his dreams… “The love coach” is one of my most favorite Romance themes and Riley Hart did it in an absolutely beautiful and unexpected way in Stupid Love! These two guys have such insane chemistry and you can’t help but hope and wait for them to finally admit their feelings to one another. Michael Dean gave both men distinct voices and it’s easy to differentiate between the points of view.
The Spiral Down
written by Aly Martinez
narrated by Aiden Snow and Teddy Hamilton
The Spiral Down is a heart-wrenchingly beautiful love story with fantastic bisexual representation. And Aiden Snow and Teddy Hamilton brought the rockstar and the pilot – neither of which consider themself relationship material – to life so perfectly. Without a doubt, this is one of the best MM Romance books on Audible!
There is a long list of audiobooks written by N.R. Walker and narrated by Joel Leslie that I could recommend to you (actually, I AM recommending them all to you!).

If you have read the Knitting in the City series and always wondered what became of Steven and his mystery date… Now you get the answer!

If you share my love for Urban Fantasy – especially the kind featuring demons – you’ll love Strays! A hellhound by himself is not a common creature to encounter in Romance, and even less so when paired with the adopted son of a faith healer… who happens to be half-incubus!
