Supernatural is pure television crack streamed straight into your veins. With plenty of hot eye candy (I hope there’s a special breeding program to preserve the genes of Sam, Dean and Castiel), intentionally suggestive dialogue and paranormal whoop-ass, what’s not to love? But if you’re stuck between seasons or episodes without a fix, try the following fiction substitutes.
Are you drawn to Supernatural for its bromance-a-thon qualities? For example, the way the Winchester brothers sissify Dean’s black four-door 1967 Chevy Impala by having yet another long-winded debate about whether brotherly love makes them stronger or weaker hunters. If so, you may be a bromance addict. (By the way, no one really cares who the better hunter is, guys, we just like to look at you because you’re both so damn pretty.) If bromance is your cup of angst then you’ll love the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward. Sure, they’re not biological brothers but they have bro-angst down pat. If you prefer your bromance between siblings (but not in an incesty way) try Lorelei James’ Rough Riders series. One of the Wyoming McKay brothers—whether it’s Colby, Colt, Carter or Kade—is bound to please. Do they come complete with cowboyish bro-angst? Sure, butt-loads of it.
