Best LGBT Erotic Romance (Bobby Michaels Award)

And the Rainbow Award goes to:

1. Heidi Cullinan - Dirty Laundry

Wonderfully written. Both main characters insecurities were handled beautifully and in a way that the reader can relate to them even if they didn’t have those specific problems themselves. Although this book is part of a series written as a collaboration with other authors, this book stands alone which is also a plus. (Theresa)
I’ve loved this one so much I’ve reread it, which I almost never do. The characters are damaged and real and both go through a development arc yet stay true to their core person. The setting is part of a series yet Heidi painted it with new colors based on her characters. This book completely stands on its own. The writing though solid, veered into preachy or moral-of-the-story narrator a couple of times. The highest score I’ve ever given. (Amberly)
This was an absolutely fantastic and realistic take on a variety of different subjects, most notably living with OCD and anxiety -- while still being a fun and sexy-as-fuck story. (Natalie)
