Draakenwood by Jordan L Hawk: Another fantastic installment in the Whyborne & Griffin series. The ongoing series plot deepens and gets more twisty with each new book, and the new characters and relationships are wonderful. I love Maggie and Persephone together, and I'm always thrilled when the librarians show up. As always, Whyborne and Griffin are lovely together. If you haven't read this series, start at the beginning with Widdershins. Immediately. I'll wait.
An Unnatural Vice by KJ Charles: The second book in the Sins of the Cities trilogy is just as good, if not better than the first. Justin, the dodgy spiritualist, is a wonderful character that I ended up liking so much, even though he is not sugar-coated to be likable in any way. The romance is enemies to lovers, and watching Justin and Nathaniel let each other in is just gorgeous. The mystery plot which carries over from the first book gets even more interesting (and I was surprised and delighted to realize I'd actually guessed something right).
Mature Content by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell: The latest book in the Cyberlove series is a good addition. I loved the characters (especially Zane. I kind of loved Zane.), and I loved watching Zane and Beau go from animosity to love. All the books in the series stand alone, but go back and read them anyway. They're so good.
Far From Home by Lorelie Brown: I've had this one on my Kindle for a while (after reading the second book in the series last year—they do stand alone), but I'm not sure why I haven't read it sooner. This is the story of Rachel and Pari. Pari is from India and in the US legally but needs a green card so she can go into business for herself, which leads us to a marriage of convenience story that throws our main characters into close proximity. Rachel is demisexual, which was great to find. It's a RITA nominee this year, and I can see why.
Spy Stuff by Matthew J Metzger: I don't read a ton of YA, but this one just drew me right in. It's the story of Anton, who is transgender and just trying to fit in and figure out life at his new school and the seemingly-straight Jude who asks him out. I just loved Anton and Jude. This book left me with such a big smile on my face.
Queers of La Vista series by Kris Ripper: As the series name (and the titles of each individual book) suggest, the series is a bit soap opera-esque with some drama and connections between characters and an ongoing murder mystery plot that runs through the five-book series. But it's also about community and family, friendship and love. It's readable and engaging and I devoured these books straight through one after another. Book 4, One Life to Lose, is probably my favorite (I just adored Cam and Keith and Josh, and I'd read about them all day), but all of the books are wonderful and I can't think of a main character I didn't like. Read them in order for the mystery (which resolves in book 4).
