Though they were not published this year, my favorite reads in 2017 were KJ Charles’ M/M romances A Gentleman’s Position and A Seditious Affair. Nothing else came close for me.
I did like Pretty Face, though, now that you mention it. Also, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, while sort of pseudo-historical and draggy in parts, was a pretty fun read. Not 100% sold on the book cover font, but I guess you could say it’s cheeky like the main character.
I’m adding Dating-ish to my TBR list.
