BEING THE 'BAD BOY' OF M/M GAY ROMANCE It's not easy to be new kid on the block. I am completely new to the M/M world and I didn't start reading it until almost a year ago. Being a male, in a predominately female-driven genre has its advantages and disadvantages. I know what it's like to experience heart break from a man who promises you the world only to kick you to the curb. I know what it's like to watch someone you love kill themselves.
