1. Surrender Your Sons

Connor lives in Illinois, and he used to live in Florida. It was nice in Florida, but his dad left, and his parents divorced. His mom packed them all up and moved them to Illinois. The town they move to is very religious. The Pastor there is idolized practically. Everybody in town loves him and knows him.

He enthralls Connor’s mom, which isn’t a problem initially. But it does become a problem eventually. Connor is now 17 years old, and his SAT scores have been bombed. The guy he’s been delivering meals to just died, and he came out to his mom.

Now, he’s been kidnapped and taken to an island to be retrained. It hasn’t been a good week. But on this island, everything isn’t as it seems. There are mysteries to be unfolded among the “campers,” the counselors, and even the island itself.

Something is going on here, and it’s bigger than what the camp is supposed to be. Connor is on a mission to find out what it is and save everybody else, to get them off the island and back to everyday life where they belong. But can he do it? Even if he can, can he make it out alive? It’s a hard one to describe without giving away spoilers. Things that happen in this book are based on things that have happened in the past. Also, it’s heartbreaking to me. This book is exciting, thrilling, and engaging, similar to Boyfriend Material.

2. Here’s to Us

The story is about Arthur and Ben. Ben is trying to figure out his life, and Arthur has a new opportunity, opening up doors for him. So it’s going great when it comes to these characters. Many are more fleshed out than the first one, which is uncommon. You get to see a cringy character named Dylan, Ben’s best friend.

Like Boyfriend Material, the author did a lot of the heavy lifting, especially with Arthur’s very emotionally driven parts. Also, she pours her heart out every scene as she writes something funny about this because it’s her redemption. The first half was very much what I expected regarding the story, and it hooked me. The middle was a little slow when things started to fizzle out, and it was not boring.

4. A Place Called Winter

This is a historical fiction about a man (Harry Cane) in the late Edwardian period in England. He is married, and he does everything suitable for his family. By the expectations of the time, he discovers that he is gay and has a relationship with a man. But unfortunately, the man turns against him and threatens to blackmail him. So, he comes out to his wife and family. They shun him and send him off to Canada.

The story follows his life through the Edwardian period, which is very dreamy and nostalgic, almost going into the harsh grittiness of the Canadian claims outside of Winnipeg. But even though Harry Kane goes through all this struggle, he has an excellent relationship. Luc and Oliver face much criticism and mental depression that we saw in Boyfriend Material.

Towards the end of the book, I won’t say with whom because he’ll give all away too much. But it is a relationship that has to ensure the hardship of isolated living. So, it is a very affirming relationship after everything that Harry has struggled with.

5. An Unsuitable Heir (Sins of the Cities)

This is set in Victorian England. So you get to see very strict views on gay relationships. But there’s a little bit of an acceptance in an underclass, and Mark is one of the side characters of the first two books. He has his own story coming into this one and becomes entangled in the heir to a great estate. But the heir has never realized he was wealthy and has lived with his twin sister, mainly traveling with a circus.

The heir himself doesn’t identify himself as a gender. He likes to transition between genders one day, feeling more feminine than masculine the next. Mark loves him for who he is. He still associates with the pronoun him, but it is a fantastic representation of loving someone for who they are and accepting their idea of themselves. So that was that by itself was a fantastic representation of a pen sexual relationship similar to Boyfriend Material.
