Happy 4th Anniversary, Unicorns! Celebrate with us! Giveaways & more!

It's the unicorns' birthday! Everybody dance now!

Boy Meets Boy Reviews is officially FOUR!

Boy Meets Boy Reviews started out as an idea between a group of book reading friends, who wanted to share their passion with the masses! We're delighted that you took the time to visit us! And you've continued to visit for the past four years! We can not only read our books, but we can tie our shoes, count our numbers, spell words and use our imagination! Lose the training wheels, the unicorns are here to play!

We asked our favorite authors and publishers to join the unicorn jamboree and join they did. They joined HARD like a BOSS!

Wait a minute there guys, there are unicorn horns for everyone!

We're bringing back the popular giveaway-a-day! And you know what else we're bringing? Flash fiction-a-day too!

Want a list of the authors participating? Here's a taste: _l_ __st_n, C_rd_n_ C., T_l B___r, J_ck L. Pyk_, M_g H_rd_ng, K__r_ _ndr_ws and _nn_b_ll_ J_c_bs! Hmm looks like we might need to work on our spelling, the pesky vowels have run away!

We have games covered on our site, Twitter and Facebook!

Unicorn Trivia Game Returns!

We’re doing the daily trivia questions again this year. They will be worth a specified point value and the person who has the most points per week will win DSP credits!


1. The questions will be on LGBT books. We usually have between 3-5 posts a day and the question could be posted on any one of those posts. The questions will ALWAYS need to have the author in the answer, but sometimes we’ll be looking for the title of the book, series name or specific character/moment/item/all sorts of things this year! Unlike last year, there will be more than one question per day, but not all days. Tricky unicorns are tricky. SO STAY WOKE!

ETA: BEGINNING NOVEMBER 13TH! 2. The objective is to answer the question correctly first  Randomizer will be used to choose a winner to collect the points. Point values will be noted on the question.

3. Once you know the answer, you’ll need to tag @BMBReviews on Twitter as well as tag (or type if you can’t find them) the author(s) names. Be sure to include both authors if there are two.

4. Points will be cumulative throughout the week and winners for the week will be announced on Sundays e.g. 5th, 12th, 19th & 26th. The email address you give must match your DSP account to receive the credits.

5. In the event of a tie, there will be a tiebreaker question asked on the following Monday and it will be tagged as such so as not to be confused with the question of the day.

Good luck!

Every Saturday this month, go on our Facebook page to win GRL 2017 swag including signed paperbacks! (Like our page to make tagging the winner easier)

  1. I simply cannot pick one favorite DSP book, that's not fair.

    A Unicorn Haiku:
    Unicorns are great
    Unicorns are magical
    Spirit animals

    1. DSP has a lot of great titles, we admit! ;D

      Thanks for the Haiku, Lisa!

  2. Sounds like fun! :D

    Favorite Dreamspinner book with a unicorn is The Lightning Struck Heart.

    WTH, a unicorn haiku?! Umm...

    1. Psst...I'll tell you a secret... we're a little unicorn mad over here. ;D

  3. Name my favorite Dreamspinners Book? Why, I need a spreadsheet to list down the titles, lol! I think a couple of early Cut & Run books, Marie Sexton’s Coda series,... and many more! I’m not sure there’s any unicorn in there. ;-)

  4. First, I'd like to greet you a VERY HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! <3

    Fave DSP book? Well, The Last Thing He Needs by J.H. Knight is one of my TOP READS of all time so I think that answers your question. ;) I'm afraid that there's no unicorn there, tho. :P

    And here's a simple haiku for you guys...

    Radiating with grace,
    oozing with sublime beauty,
    though it's a wild beast.

    1. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE The Last Thing He Needs (could you tell from my review? LOL)

      Thanks for visiting and the well wishes, James!

  5. Happy anniversary unicorns!! My unicorn name is Heather Candy Foal :)

    Favorite DSP books I have to go back to the early years. Marie Sexton's "Coda Series" as well as Andrea Speed's "Infected" series.

  6. Happy anniversary.

    My favorite DSP book is Withered + Sere by TJ Klune. No it didn't have an unicorn :(

    1. There are a lot of Klune-happy unicorns who might've squeed from your choice, Ana!

      Thanks for visiting!

  7. Happy Anniversary.🎉
    One of many favorites from Dream Spinner is KC Wells Collars and Cuffs series. I did have a Unicorn. My dad won it for my mom and she gave it me years later. The Unicorns name was Maggie

    1. Maggie the unicorn sounds like she was well loved!

      Thanks for the well wishes, Angel!

  8. Angela:
    Happy 4th Anniversary to you all :) some of my favorite DSP books are The Shearing Gun by Renae Kaye, Frog by Mary Calmes, The Last Thing he Needs by JH Knight and The Way Things Are by AJ Thomas.
    My Unicorn name is: Nightshade Sparkle Horse

    1. Great list, Nightshade Sparkle Horse! Thanks for the well wishes!

  9. As someone else wrote, my favorite books are also Withered + Sere by TJ Klune.

  10. Fern Celestial Reins that is my unicorn Name :)
    Congrats on your anniversary. One of my favorite DSP book is Rattlesnake by Kim Fielding.

    1. Thanks, Fern Celestial Reins! Ah yes, Rattlesnake by Fielding is a phenomenal read!

      Or so I've heard. ;)

  11. Beyond the Surface by Felice Stevens

    I'm no poet
    But you didn't know it!

  12. I can't pick a favorite DSP book - there are just too many wonderful ones. But I do love TJ Klune's Tales from Verania series and there is most definitely a unicorn in those books. ;-)

    Here is my unicorn haiku...it's been a while since I tried anything like this...

    A magical beast
    You spark imagination
    And share your beauty

  13. Happy Anniversary! My favorite DsP book is probably Upside Down by Andrew Grey.

    The unicorn won
    His hooves and horn shining bright
    Danced happily

    1. Thanks for the well wishes, Jen!

      Andrew Grey would certainly be on some of the unicorns' faves lists.

      Wonderful haiku!

  14. My favorite DSP book is Damon Suede's HOT HEAD! No unicorn in it, but Tali Spencer's THICK AS THIEVES has a pretty funny (and sexy) plotline involving a unicorn horn. This reminds me...

    Unicorn shifters
    Can only touch virgins? But
    They must reproduce!



    1. Heh! Great haiku! And great classic choice of Hot Head!

      Thick as Thieves remains a Unicorn Mafia favorite and unicorn rec to many readers!

  15. My favorite DSP? Probably Amy Lane's "Chase in Shadow"

    Four hooves and a horn
    Don't mess with me when riled. I know
    How to make my point

    1. Thanks for the haiku! We <3 it! Great DSP classic too!

  16. Just one book? Let me see... Family of Lies: Sebastian by Sam Argent is the first one that comes to my mind..
    Unicorns have dreams
    They are soft, sweet and happy
    Sparky dreams to share

    1. Wonderful haiku, booksandmore!

      Sam Argent? Great choice! We have a diehard fan among the ranks!

  17. Congratulations to you from Helleborine Dainty Eyes (unicorn name)One of my favorite DSP book is September by Robert Winter

    1. Thanks for the congratulations, Helleborine Dainty Eyes! Cupcake went nuts for September! Great choice indeed!

  18. Hello from Rose Rainbow Nose!!
    My fave DSP (from one of my fave punlishers) is Cole McGinnis series by Rhys Ford


    1. Hiya Rose Rainbow Nose! Can't go wrong with Rhys Ford!

  19. My unicorn name is Fern Sweet Horse. :)

    My favorite DSP book is probably Tell Me It's Real by TJ Klune, but I do love his Verania series, where there is a unicorn for sure. ;) Also, I can't not mention how much I love all of Mary Calmes books.

    My haiku:
    Prancing through the woods,
    Sparkling, flowing, long white mane,
    A horned creature

    1. YESSSSSSS Calmes! :D Another vote for Klune too! ;)

      Thanks for the haiku, Fern Sweet Horse!

  20. Happy Anniversary. One of my fav Dreamspiiners is the series by Anthony Q. Gordon, Champion of the Gods . . . and of course there are unicorns in it. - Purple Reader,
    TheWrote [at] aol [dot] com

    1. Oh something to check out! The magic words was activated! Thanks for the well wishes, Purple Reader!

  21. Favorite DSP book? Well...that's hard to say since there is so many great books and authors to choose from.

    I'm horrible at poetry and the thought of coming up with a Haiku seems painful. But here goes:

    Rainbows and glitter,
    Prancing and dancing through glades,
    Unicorns we are

  22. Decided to give it try, it was at lest fun at trying:

    Light of the white moon
    Unicorn prancing with pride
    Aglow in silver

    - Purple Reader, TheWrote [at] aol [dot] com

    1. *claps hooves* That was marvelous! Thanks Purple Reader!

  23. Hi from Nightshade Darling Legs here (LOL!!!). Happy anniversary, guys! I love your reviews, I can always count on them when I need a laugh. <3
    I have too many favorite DSP books but one I've re-read a few times this year is Making Nice by Elizah Davis.

    1. Thanks for the well wishes, Nightshade Darling Legs!

      Making Nice hmm? I'll go check out more about it since it's a fave! Thanks for the rec!

  24. Your anniversary haiku challenge inspired me to keep going, and after some of the news in the RW, I thought I'd share another haiku:

    If only we could ...
    Heal this hurt, troubled world with
    a Unicorn's horn.

    - Purple Reader, TheWrote [at] aol [dot] com

    1. Unicorn haikus are the best to help deal with RW news. Thanks again Purple Reader!

  25. Replies
    1. It's a fan fave for a reason! ;D Thanks for sharing, AM!

  26. THIRDS and Cut and Run series....love them both

    I'm Peachy Charming Girl :)

    Unicorn farting
    Rainbows are sparkling on high
    Spear me with your horn

    I tried lol :)

    1. Another for the THIRDS and Cut & Run series! Thanks for the haiku, Peachy Charming Girl!

  27. My favorite DSP book is Acrobat by Mary Calmes.
    As for my haiku, here goes:
    Magical creatures
    Sparkly, shiny, and pretty
    Fly free unicorn
    Well, I'm definitely not a poet, but I tried!!

    1. Whoo great job, Nica. And Acrobat is certainly one of my fave Calmes! ;D


  28. I have almost 1000 Dreamspinner books (not that I've read most of them yet), so picking is almost impossible. I really like Charlie Cochet's THIRDS series and Jacob Z. Flores Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge series started me on the path to my current Kindle addiction.

    1. We can't fault anyone's eBook addiction! Thanks for commenting!

  29. I’ve never written haiku before, but I’ll give it a try. ;-) This is more or less the current condition here.

    Rain falls down tonight
    The riverbed is flooding
    It’s cold outside

  30. Can't pick a favorite DSP books, but I remember reading I think Amy Lane first from DSP - Promise books and Talker books specifically.

  31. Unicorn haiku?? LOL!

    Unicorns are rare
    So is great M/M Romance
    Both are so much fun!

  32. famous unicorn cousin = "Gary" ..
    bet he's a fan of boy meets boy. !
    happy anniversary.

  33. I have all of Rhys Ford's books. I started with the Dirty series.

    Unicorns rule me
    Unicorns rule thee and thou
    Long rule Unicorns


    1. Hooray for another Rhys Ford fan! Thanks for the haiku!

  34. My favourite Dreamspinner book is...hmm, how about Empty Net by Avon Gale, Clear Water by Amy Lane, 18% Gray by Anne Tenino, and the Marshalls series by Mary Calmes.

  35. First the most important part, My unicorn superhero name is Tulip Sparkle Head. Pleased to meet you.

    Favorite book (No unicorns, however.) would be A Casual Weekend Thing by AJ Thomas. Loved how complex the characters were.

    High on a clifftop
    Mane blowing in the cool wind
    Sun reflects off horn

  36. First I must say Happy Anniversary!
    And now a Haiku entitled:

    Gary The Unicorn

    Angry Gary Sparkles
    Happy Gary Loves His Friend
    Gary Is Special

    Thank you! It's capitalized so it's true ;)
