#2 — TAINT by SL Jennings
What did we have to say about TAINT?
SL Jennings brings out the sexy in Taint, especially as I read it with her muse, Michael Thurston, the cover model. Picturing all of those abs at my fingertips *ahem* made for a very healthy and enjoyable beach read.
Taint has such a fabulously smutty premise, it’s hard not to get sucked into it. Blisteringly hot Mike Thurston is the perfect muse for the Adonis sex-instructor, Justice Drake.
Part romance, part sexual counsel, part “what is going on here?!” I liked to imagine Michael Thurston saying all the really dirty parts to me. *giggle*
This book is sexy as hell, even before there is any actual sex. Justice is commanding, gorgeous, confident and very broken and alone.
This book surprised me on the story and twists, plus how much I enjoyed it. Granted, I’ve loved everything SL Jennings has written. It helped me get over a book slump and I would definitely recommend it.
Humorous, sexually fantastical, romantic, and just plain fabulous! Read in one sitting; would absolutely recommend!

#3 — Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren
I can already tell that Sweet Filthy Boy will be one of those books I recommend people buy and read, then you all come back and tell me how glad you did and how worth it the purchase was. Yes, it is a bit of a higher-priced book, but like a gourmet cup of coffee or dessert after dinner, you need to treat yourself to something really good sometimes. Sweet Filthy Boy is really good, really sexy, and really worth your pennies.
#4 — After This Night (Seductive Nights) by Lauren Blakely
Lauren did a fabulous job wrapping up Julia and Clay’s rollercoaster of a relationship in After this Night. She can really bring the romance, the suspense and the sexytimes in a spicy quick read. I love to see New York accurately depicted in a story and Lauren did a bang up job. Highly Recommended.

Kick (Songs of Perdition)by CD Reiss
You do not need to read Songs of Submission or Songs of Corruption to enjoy Songs of Perdition
Fiona Drazen, sex addict, submissive slave, celebutante, trapped in a mental ward until Dr. Elliot Chapman can help her remember why she’s there. But once she does, she might not want to go home to the Master she tried to kill.
***This is the first of a serial. It’s about 120-130 pages and ends in a cliffhanger, because that’s how I roll. There’s also a ton of drug use, and educated men who like dirty sex, because that’s also how I roll***
UnRaveled by K Bromberg
A dark erotica novella by NYT and USA Today Best Selling Author K. Bromberg
Filled with fear.
Sated by pleasure.
Robbed of control.
Blindfolded and bound.
Shamed she liked it.
Doomed to want it.
An identity unraveled.
Lives changed forever.
**Please be advised that UnRaveled is a darker erotic novella that is not suitable for people sensitive to situations dealing with sexual duress or hard to read subjects. It is tame compared to other dark erotica novellas but it will push your comfort level all the while making you think about your own needs, wants, and realities.
This is a story about a stale marriage and the couple’s unconventional attempt at communication and finding that spark again. **
The Devil In Me (Seven Devils) by KI Lynn
In search of strength and guidance at a nearby church, Jared happens upon a temptation. One he cannot Hope to resist. Each time he sees her, the overwhelming urge to have her consumes him. The lust is overpowering, dragging him deeper and deeper with each encounter, exposing the devil within.
Red & Wolfe, Part I: An Erotic Fairy Tale by Ella James
When Sarah “Red” Ryder loses her job as an art critic for a Boston newspaper, she’s brokenhearted. Worse than that? She’s broke. Her boyfriend recently left her, so she’s stuck paying her hefty apartment rent alone. After two months unemployed, there’s no money left. With no immediate family to turn to, Red reaches out to her estranged grandmother, a reclusive writer living on an island off the coast of Charleston. Several days later, Red receives $30,000 and an invitation to visit.
James Wolfe is not Red’s grandmother – but he’s the only person waiting for her at the boat dock. Red has something he needs. He won’t take “no” for an answer, and he doesn’t mind screwing her over to get it. He lost his conscience six years ago, when he went off the grid. Since then, life is about him – and the renowned oil paintings he does under the mysterious pseudonym “W.”
Until the moment he sees her. Then Red is all he wants. And Wolfe will have her – any way he can.
* This story is the first of three serials about Red & Wolfe. Red & Wolfe, Part II: An Erotic Fairy Tale is available now.
Worth by Shay Savage
Lucius Aurelius Faustus is the Tribunus over Caesar’s legions in the west, fighting against the Gauls. He’s harsh, unforgiving, strategic, and deadly on the battlefield. When an enemy’s sword pierces his side, he must retreat to Mediolanum to have the wound treated. Once the medicus has done all he can, he commands Aia, a slave woman, to watch over Tribunus Faustus as he heals. As Faustus appraises the beautiful young woman, he knows she’ll be tending to more than just his wound.
To distract him from the pain, Aia regales him with stories of her childhood as a slave, and Faustus finds himself strangely drawn to her. When he demands further distraction, she obliges without question as a slave must. Her gentle ministrations command the attention of the Tribunus, and as he learns more of her, he sees her without the veiled eye with which a master views a servant.
Aia is only a slave, her value measured by nothing but a pair of coins. Another man already owns her, and she is far beneath one who commands Emperor Caesar’s armies. Regardless, Faustus finds her warm touch and genuine concern for his healing intriguing, and his inexplicable attraction for her deepens.
A man of his station can never acknowledge feelings for a slave, but during their time together, Faustus begins to understand her true worth.
These Men by Andrea Smith
Paige Matthews has a lot to learn – about everything, including herself. At age twenty-two, Paige finds herself driving across the country to start an internship with the F.B.I. in Quantico, Virginia.
You would think that Paige would be grateful to her older brother, Trace Matthews, a senior F.B.I. agent who pulled strings on her behalf to get her into the program, right?
Paige is not overly enthused at the realization that her parents have pushed her from the nest and onto her older brother’s plate for the time being. Always a loner, she quickly wears out her welcome with Trace and his wife Lindsey, due to her . . . need for random hook-ups, and finds herself crashing with her oldest brother, Easton, and his wife Darcy.
Through Darcy, Paige is introduced to her sister-in-law’s former roommate and bestie male friend, Eli Chambers, along with his sinfully handsome partner, Cain Maddox. They’re looking for a roommate and Paige is looking to get out from underneath her family’s watchful eye.
This is no typical “Three’s Company” story though. Paige embarks on a journey of self-discovery that teaches her not only about giving, but about accepting love as well. She soon realizes that sometimes what you’re searching for has been right there with you all along.
This book is intended for mature audiences. Explicit Sex.

#6 — Alpha by Jasinda Wilder
★★★★★ Certified Favorite
It’s no secret that Jasinda Wilder is one of my favorite authors, and it’s not just because she’s become a good friend, but because she’s an amazing writer who can pen a sex scene that seems to last for days. Alpha takes over every thought I’ve had about other books she’s written. It’s not the emotional heart-achy love story we’re used to from Jasinda; Alpha is erotica in its truest form.

#8 — The Wild Side by RK Lilley
Whatever RK Lilley did in her writing to make this one of the hottest books I’ve ever read… she needs to keep doing. Though my downthere would protest because she’s asked for a stick to wave her white flag.
This is a whole new RK Lilley.
Does she still zing? Is she still packin heat? Can she do it? Can she write outside of the Up In The Air/Tristan and Danika scene? Can she still grab you by the lady-balls, look you in the eyes and make you call her Ms. Lilley? You bet your sweet ass she can!
Book Two: Iris coming soon

#9 — Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan
There’s a reason so many fellow readers are raving about this book: it’s fantastic. Archer’s Voice is one of those books you hope will be great when you start and ends up being one you want all of your friends to read.
This is a beautiful emotional story, skillfully written by Mia Sheridan. Mia brings these wonderful, multi-faceted characters to life. The challenges that are faced by this couple are unique, and unmatched in any other book I’ve read. I highly recommend Archer’s Voice.
Sometimes there are no words. Sometimes a book just speaks to my heart. Sometimes a simple review can’t express the complete and utter fabulousness of a book. This is one of those times.
