Below, you’ll find my favorite MM Romance books, and many of my fellow listeners will agree with me that these are among the best MM Romance audiobooks out there!
I have to admit though, for a long time, M/M 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 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!

Adult MM Romance Books
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
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 that they are still together 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 is absolutely fantastic and had a big part in me enjoying this audiobook so thoroughly!

Role Model is probably my favorite gay Sports Romance!
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 is so insanely sweet! I loved how the two guys talk with each other. Their relationship journey is incredibly 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 emotional 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, makes this an all-around entertaining story. And I absolutely adored the narration by Tyler Tetsuda!
Something Wild & Wonderful
This book is so fascinating! It feels like a long, meditative hike.
Alexei and Ben meet on the Pacific Crest Trail. Both have just set out on a months-long trip, planning to walk until they figure out their lives.
I enjoy camping and walking, but I’m not quite at the level of the main characters in this book. The descriptions of nature and hiking a trail for weeks were absolutely amazing! And I loved these two people so much.
Mark Sanderlin has a wonderful voice, and Something Wild and Wonderful is such a lovely, atmospheric book.

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.
Playing The Palace
The openly gay Crown Prince of England, Edgar, falls for one Carter Ogden, an event planner from New Jersey.

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!).
But The Weight of It All is the one I see mentioned most often by fellow MM Romance audiobooks fans!
It’s such a sweet, emotional, and funny story about a man who gets dumped by his long-term partner and wants to turn his life around…
Sticking To The Script
