It’s twenty days into Pride, which means it’s time for another list of five books from me! This fourth post is dedicated to contemporary MLM books set in the United States or United Kingdom. The “includes” notes refer only to the protagonists/POV characters/MC and LI. Synopses can be found under the cut and the links lead to Goodreads. For my minor and sex-repulsed followers: these books include graphic descriptions of sexual situations. This month’s first post, dedicated to historicals, can be found here; the second post, dedicated to a-spec MLM representation, can be found here; the third post, dedicated to paranormal books, can be found here; and the fourth post, dedicated to contemporary books set in New Zealand or Australia, can be found here.
If you’d like to check out my 30 Books for 30 Days of Pride list from last year, you can find it at this link! I hope you’ll look forward to five MLM fantasy books on June 26!

This post’s LGBT+ author is Xen Sanders/Cole McCade! He is a bi/queer author of primarily MLM books. I recommended his book Shatterproof in my paranormal post, but I am also enjoying the Criminal Intentions serial, which is written like a police procedural with each installment being a full-length book. That series centers on the protagonists: Malcolm Khalaji, a “bi silver fox Persian American Mizrahi Jewish hero,” and Seong-Jae Yoon, a “gay demigray ace Korean American hero”.
