Smut Book Club’s Top 10 Books of 2013

Contents

We’ve lived through the good, the bad, and the smutty.

Now that the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014 is weighing nigh on our lives, the obligatory Best Of lists are out.

I admit that I love a Best Of list. It may be why I love the banal entertainment of Buzzfeed and troll bestsellers lists. If I love lists, I figure you do, too.

What’s the criteria for a book or series making it onto this Top 10 Books of 2013 list?

  • It was published between December 2012 – (early) January 2014; if the favorite is a series, the final book is published in this timeframe.
  • It stuck with me—for any reason—beyond the writing of its recommendation.
  • It’s absolutely worth every penny spent.

These may be my top 10 books of 2013, but they are in no way the entirety of my favorite books I recommend. Click here to see my full list of favorites.

As a special bonus, my super awesome columnists and contributors are listing theirs.

And because I love you so, I’m giving away 3 Amazon.com gift cards. Enter below!

Smut Book Club’s Top 10 Books of 2013

Falling Into You Certified Favorite

Falling Into You by Jasinda Wilder

Falling Into Us

Buy Now From Amazon

“Run, don’t walk, your little fingers over to the buy button to get this book. Falling Into You destroyed my emotions on every possible level. (T)he depths Jasinda takes us into the lives of the characters is overwhelming. Over and over, her words of struggle and of love and of friendship and of loss wrapped around my heart, forcing me to fall into the story.”

Companion novel: Falling Into Us

The Mistress Certified Favorite

The Mistress by Tiffany Reisz

Buy Now From Amazon

“The Mistress is a revelation in storytelling. As the conclusion to the first and present half of the full Original Sinners series, the characters not only come full circle, they envelop the entirety of the story, bring us to our knees, and rock us gently in an ancient rocking chair while part of our soul is comforted through the pleasure of pain. It is perfection.”

Songs of Submission Certified Favorite

Songs of Submission by CD Reiss

Buy Now From Amazon

read my recommendation and more information here

“Just like binging on a TV series on Netflix, the ‘episodes’ of the Songs of Submission series is best read back-to-back. Set aside the time to invest in these books. This series is wholly and completely worth the cost and time investment. It is impeccably written, beyond steamy, all-encompassing, and filled with unexpected dramatic twists and turns that had me foregoing all of my motherly, wifely, and professional responsibilities.”

[/box_light] [box_light] Sinners on Tour Certified Favorite

Wicked Beat (Sinners On Tour Series) by Olivia Cunning

Buy Now From Amazon

read my recommendation and more information here

“Out of all of the Sinners On Tour books, Wicked Beat is my favorite. I KNOW. I don’t know how it happened, and I never expected it, but it did. It’s funny, endearing, and extremely sexy. This 5th (though 4th in the series) book released its way into my heart. Eric Sticks—You are my man.”

Try Certified Favorite

Try by Ella Frank

Buy Now From Amazon

read my recommendation and more information here

“Never mind that Try is a phenomenal male/male erotica book; Try is a flat-out phenomenal erotica book. It’s not about the romance, and it’s surely not about the will they/won’t they. This is all about the down and deliciously dirty coupling of two hot men—Logan, a bisexual manwhore lawyer and Tate, a straight divorced bartender. I’ve not read another erotica book that had so much more sex than story that also didn’t make me miss the story.”

Just Human Certified Favorite

Just Human and Still Human by Kerry Heavens

Still Human Certified Favorite

Buy Now From Amazon

read my recommendation for and more information here

Just Human: “I loved this book. I loved the sweetness, the humor, the love story, the sexing, the characters, the history, the sexing, and the sweetness. Oh, and the sexing. And then BOOM. I’m left hanging with some serious frustration at the end.”

Still Human: “I love Liv and Danny. I want them to be my very best friends, and if they were real people and I lived in England, I think we could totally be BFFs. After the whirlwind rekindled romance of Being Human left me with a severe case of literary blue balls, I couldn’t wait to get back into reading about these two tattooed lovebirds.”

Collide Certified Favorite

Collide and Pulse by Gail McHugh

Pulse Certified Favorite

Buy Now From Amazon

read my recommendation for and more information here

Collide: “Collide is forcefully intimate in the way it crawled into my heart and took over. I felt so much strife and sympathy for all the characters, wanting to jump in and scream at pretty much every single one at some point in the book. Collide is a definite must-read.”

Pulse: “Gavin Blake is officially anointed to sit atop my Favorite Alpha Male Mountain with all my other boyfriends. Just like Collide, Pulse left me teared up, mad, and deeply in love with the words and characters Gail McHugh wrote. You can’t read one without the other, and thankfully we have a whole story wrapped in Collide and Pulse.”

Protecting What's His Certified Favorite

Protecting What’s His by Tessa Bailey

Buy Now From Amazon

read my recommendation for and more information here

“This book has everything I want from a story: snark, sex, suspense, and more sex. But it’s not just alliteration that got my rocks off; it was how all of those things were put together into a book that was fun to read, well written, and easy to recommend. Plus, Derek has a very dirty mouth that begs to be obeyed. The only other thing I would want is for a second book as Derek and Ginger take things to the next level, and once you read this, you’ll understand what I mean. A must-read!”

Searching for Moore Certified Favorite

Searching for Moore and Moore to Lose by Julie Richman

Moore to Lose Certified FavoriteBuy Now From Amazon

read my recommendation for and more information here

Searching for Moore:  “Even knowing—or partly knowing—what would be happening in the future, there were so many heartbreaking and stunning moments in the book that it made me that much more invested in finding out how it all came together, or in some cases, fell apart. The sex was ridiculously hot for the short scenes we’re given, and the characters are more than lovable. (I’m considering leaving my husband and children to go in search of Schooner Moore.) This is the first of a series that ends with many things up in the air. Searching for Moore is a must read!”

Moore to Lose: “You know how you think you know what may happen in a series as it moves along, and you’re totally tuned in to continuing on that journey because you loved its predecessor? Well, throw all of that out the window when you read Moore to Lose. There’s no way you’re going to get any more out of me about this book other than expect the unexpected.”

Tangled Certified FavoriteTangled by Emma Chase

Buy Now From Amazon

read my recommendation for and more information here

“It takes some seriously funny writing for me to actually laugh out loud while I’m reading alone, but Emma Chase made me not only laugh aloud but have to stop what I was reading to re-read what I didn’t believe I just read. Tangled is panty-dropping, outrageously funny, and overwhelmingly lovely. I finished it in nearly one sitting because I had to know more of Drew and Kate and their tit-for-tat, anti-romance story. Tangled is not a must-read; it’s a drop-everything-except-your-spare-batteries and read.”
