Re: Guys & Romance Books

My friend told me something about Bella and the vampire guy and how something happens between them, and then he leaves her in the forest and she meets a werewolf, or something like that.

Re: Guys & Romance Books

My version of it is: Edwaard goes all weird, leaves her. Bella can't "breathe" without him *rolls eyes* She becomes a robot. Becomes friends with the Jacob dude and he becomes a werewolf.

Re: Guys & Romance Books

Well I'm a straight guy also who loves romance. Haha. I mean the only romance novel I have read was Samantha's Summer and Twilight Saga but that's a different story -_-. But I agree with original poster. I'm not really into the sports and cars stuff. Like yea I like it but Romance is awesome too. I like reading about how a guy thinks he top dog and then falls for this girl and completly falls on his arse and tries to win her over. It's funny. But I like it haha xD

Re: Guys & Romance Books

No one cares! Is just amazing that a guy your age, strait, and is no scared to say that he likes romance books! I have a few books u may like....

 

the dark guardian series (moonlight, full moon, and dark of the moon) the werewolves have to find their one and only true mate by the time they are 17 and shift into

wolf form the fist time. I'm reading the second book and I love it!

 

then there is the night huntress series (halfway to the grave, one foot in the grave, and at grave's end) since you are 16 you may not want to read the night huntress series. Its a little on the rated-r side. I still love it! The feeling of if cat is going to fall for bones who is a hitman is just amazing!

[ Edited ]

I'm a guy and I like romance books too, I've even written a teen romance novel. I guess you could say it is romance for guys, since it's told from the boy's point of view, but mostly girls seem to be the only ones who read it. Have you ever thought about writing your own stories? I think more stories with a guy's perspective is def needed. Falling in love is one of the greatest adventures in life.

Re: Guys & Romance Books

I'm a girl but I still want to say something.(: I think that it's really cool that your into those kind of books. Most boys don't want to try those kind of books because they're embarassed or something, but they shouldn't be.

 

Try the Insiders novels(: They're really good books

Re: Guys & Romance Books

Why do people keep pulling up threads from 2009?  Whoever posed these questions no longer cares and doesn't even post here anymore.  It would be great if people could start a new thread if a similar topic comes up so newer users don't have to sort through pages of irrelevant stuff. 

Spelling is for "loosers."
