Here are Shameless Book Club’s end-all, be-all, read-all romance and erotica books we recommend you read!
A homicide detective with an Aussie accent, handcuffs, and a dominant personality? Sign me up!
Fiona Archer delivers a romance that will keep you at the edge of your seat in suspense while sweating profusely at the serious hotness that is Seth Justice.
The Reaper’s MC series should come with a warning: Will rob you of a good night’s sleep. At least that has been the case for me with every single one of Joanna Wylde’s biker books. Not that I wish you all to suffer, but if you haven’t read Joanna Wylde, you need to. Sleep is overrated anyway.
The beautiful scenery and the very real, very engaging characters with their everyday struggles, failures and victories, their intense chemistry and torrid love affairs jump right off the page. It’s an auto-one-click for me, a definite 5 stars, and a Must-Read for all contemporary romance fans.
There was always something unexpected happening to pull me in. The desire and passion between Jessica and Cooper was palpable. This is a five-star read. And I can not wait for the rest of this series.
I have the biggest book hangover from this one. It was so good. It all comes together in a page-turning story that I absolutely LOVED. [5/5 stars]
Avery James’s tribulations bring her to Gabriel Miller, whose brand of salvation is not kind and gentle, and may not be salvation for Avery at all. His brand of hotness, though, is very right, in a scary, domineering alpha kind of way.
Another beautifully written, action, drama, and romance-packed Maiden Lane story from Elizabeth Hoyt. ~Lina [5/5 stars]
Everly and Sawyer kept me laughing and swooning throughout the whole book. I may have shed some tears too, which is rare. I highly recommend binge-reading all of Jana Aston’s books.
I was rubbing my thighs together one minute and laughing hysterically the next while reading this book. It’s brilliant—fast paced, so very sexy, with smart and engaging protagonists.
As always, this is a MUST READ for the kink-loving readers out there who enjoy watching a submissive squirm as the dominant men in her life take her in hand. [5/5 Stars]
If you like the Phantom of the Opera, you’ll like the little homage Helen writes into this hot historical story about a shy woman with the voice of an angel and the theater owner who falls in love with her.
Unraveled is a quick, sexy read that is perfect for your lunchtime break, though you probably want privacy.
Get to know the brains behind the book authors at Shameless Book Club 2016! We asked them to tell us two things: their favorite book of all time and their favorite book they read in the last year.
Kresley Cole describes the build up and anticipation perfectly. If you enjoy hot sex scenes with BDSM aspects and great humor throughout your books, 1-click now.
There was heartbreak and hardship along the way, with interspersed bits that were heartwarming, and sexy, of course there was sexy.
Jennifer Dawson came out of nowhere and gave me exactly what I needed to get out of my book funk with Michael and Layla’s story. Crave has a hot, alpha and Dominant cop who goes after the woman he’s been watching for 6 months.
Naasir stole my heart. He’s wild, beautiful, full of secrets that will keep you guessing. And most importantly, he’s super sexy. Andromeda is a lucky angel.
I have a lot of catching up to do but I feel a binge read coming on for this series.
Joseph writes about a gorgeous, alpha bodyguard and his virgin chess player and makes the story fresh, interesting, and super duper, panty-melting hot. ~Lina [5/5 stars]
In Moonlight on Nightingale Way, Logan and Grace’s story is intense and funny and sexy and frustrating. It moves at a quick pace, which will probably mean that the laundry will have to wait because it’s that hard to put down. ~Lina[5/5 stars]
The Properly Spanked series has come to an end (maybe). I’ll admit I wasn’t a huge fan of historicals before this series but now…HOOKED! Annabel knows how to bring the details of the past right into modern times. The gentleman are sophisticated and charming. The ladies are proper and elegant. That is, of course, until they misbehave and meet the hands of their husbands.
Another classic Cherise Sinclair, quality BDSM story. To all my kinky romance lovers—this is a MUST READ.
There’s a line most romance authors won’t cross for fear of reader sensitivities, but Joanna sees that line, toes over it, giggles to herself, then she jumps.
Sexy cowboy lovers, this novella is for you! [4 stars] ~Lina
I savored this book, took my time. I couldn’t bear for it to end. I’ll be adding this MUST READ to my re-read shelf. ~Lina [5 stars]
Love the Way You Lie might not be the captive-dark that we’re used to getting from Skye, but it still hits on the darker themes and plucks at all the emotional strings.
#NotARealDinosaur – Rock Hard had it all: tension, humor, sass and plenty of quirky romance with lots of sexiness. And now I want a T-rex of my own. ~ Marissa [5/5 stars]
Lainey Reese knows how to write a sexy menage (anyone read her New York series?), so it’s no surprise that Guarding Nadia is well written with realistic, yet fantastic BDSM scenes. ~Lina [4/5 Stars]
Do not start reading Reaper’s Stand at 10pm. Trust me when I say that it will wreak havoc on your good night’s sleep. [5/5 stars]
The books we’re listing aren’t necessarily ones that were released this summer, but they’re ones we read and loved from May through August 2014.
I absolutely loved this book. The story moved along at a quick pace, it was action packed, but not overdone. ~Lina [4-1/2 stars]
This is the perfect book when you’re in the mood for something light and quick. ~Lina [4-1/2 stars]
This story is about healing and friendship and love. It’s so much more than just hot kinky sex. But the sex is definitely hot and kinky. [4/5 stars]
Cherise Sinclair wove yet another engrossing, sexy story about a beautiful, bratty submissive with a troubled past. ~ Lina [5/5 stars]
Nalini Singh is a master at building a vivid world around her characters and drawing the reader right into their lives. ~Lina [5/5 stars]
The way that Bianca Sommerland tells the story of four people (Tyler, Chicklet, Laura, and Raif) intertwined in a romantic relationship – their growth and discovery, their mistakes that brought them right down to earth and made them relatable, albeit, not always likable – puts her in the category of authors who really understand storytelling.
This is a story I would highly recommend to hardcore BDSM readers who enjoy the arts (le cirque anyone?), the lifestyle, lots of anal, heroines who keep their heroes on their toes, and heroes who keep their heroines on their knees…or on their backs…or really in any position that gives them easy access. ~ Lina [5/5 stars]
Super five stars for this Edge of the Enforcer. A MUST read for all my BDSM and Alpha Male Hero lovers. [5/5 stars]
So it seems Lina likes some dub con. Who knew? (Yeah, we all knew.) She has two seriously hot dub con books up on today’s Kinky column.
I think that it’s a book you have to plan for, because reading it in public places may result in indecent exposure and possibly some embarrassing urges.
