I have been nominated in several categories for the Goodreads M/M Romance Best of 2021 awards, and I am so excited to be included! Unsurprisingly, readers find me memorable for my virgins and my sexual awakening/discovery themes. These are two of my favorite tropes to write. Give me an innocent, awkward guy stumbling his way into love any day. And the sexy, confident guy who realizes he didn’t know as much about himself and his sexuality as he thought? So much fun to write!
The Goodreads awards allow readers like you to decide the winners! Polls are open through January 10.

Here are my books that are in the running:
Best Virgin for Tapped By My Roommate
Ethan Greene: Shy geek, newly bi-curious, and…propositioning his gay roommate? I have a passion for a lot of things: wildlife biology, Godzilla, bowties… But when it comes to people, I’m more timid. Which is why I’m stuck with a toxic ex-girlfriend who’s holding my lizard hostage. I need to face her–and save my dignity. But a little backup won’t hurt, right? My roommate is the perfect wingman. Rhett is assertive and charismatic. The kind of guy people respect. And when he meets my ex, he’s also the kind of guy to get protective. I take comfort in his strength, even as I envy it. But when he kisses me, things get awkward. It could all end in heartbreak. Unless I find the courage I’ve been seeking my whole life. Can I be bold enough to ask Rhett Hayes to be mine?

Simon Prentiss: ex-football star, bitter rival, and…falling for the enemy? I hate my teammate, Parker Reed. I hate that he makes me work so hard for my position on the field. Hate how he always smiles. How easily he shows me up when I’m injured. Most of all, I hate that he made me lose my temper. Next thing I know, football is gone. My scholarship is gone. I’m nearly gone, too. At least without football, I can explore a new side to myself. See where my attraction to guys takes me without fear of it affecting my future. I didn’t see it coming. The cosmic joke. The sweet, patient guy on the hookup app? The one who makes me burn with the desire to have him? Yeah, it’s Parker. BUY OR DOWNLOAD ON KINDLE UNLIMITED
Best Family Drama for Naughty & Nice
Why can’t I forget your kiss… Dear Quinn, Why must I have these feelings for you? You’re my ex-stepbrother, and nothing will change that truth, no matter how many letters I write. I never expected to see you again–or to rescue you from the side of the road in a blizzard. I didn’t think you would ever like me, much less kiss me in a steaming hot tub on a snowy night. It seems we make better lovers than brothers, which is all kinds of naughty and nice while we’re snowed in together. But can this new intimacy last when the skies clear and my family finally arrives for the holidays, or are we just two guys in a mountain cabin with a great view of everything we want but can’t have? Hopelessly yours, Jonas
