Best Gay Contemporary Romance (William Neale Award)

And the Rainbow Award goes to:



1. Amy Lane - Racing for the Sun

Nice and steady. The buildup towards the finale is great. Lots of emotional charge. I actually know someone who is planning on doing this exact thing when they get out of the military (though it's with their wife), so the story is entirely plausible. (Sar)
It feels like Amy Lane really stepped out of her comfort zone with this book. Despite her reputation for angst, Racing for the Sun is much darker than her usual work, with stunning results. It's a story about two damaged men finding solace together, protecting each other, and fighting each other's demons. The writing beautifully captures the pureness of the love between Ace and Sonny. (Natalie)



Runners Up:

2. Amy Lane - Mourning Heaven / Ryan Loveless - Ethan Who Loved Carter
3. Taylor V. Donovan - Disasterology 101
4. Carter Quinn - Out of the Blackness
5. Heidi Cullinan & Marie Sexton - Second Hand
6. Anyta Sunday - Taboo For You
7. Alexis Hall - Glitterland
8. Julie Bozza - The Apothecary's Garden
