16 Romance & Erotica Books To Read Before You Die

16 Romance And Erotica Books To Read Before You DieWe see the desperate call from readers all the time: WHAT SHOULD I READ NEXT?

Because I’m a mean, mean boss, I gave my Smut Fairies (“contributors” to the lay person) an assignment to name TWO and ONLY TWO standalone books and/or completed series to read before you die.

I know. I’m evil.

But my evil ways have made this list of 16 romance and erotica books to read before you die a real thing, so I will accept your messages of thanks.

Here are the end-all, be-all, read-all romance and erotica books we recommend you read! You’ll notice that most of the books are the first of a series. In those cases, the first book is a hook to suck you into the entire amazing, completed series.

Bombshell by CD Reiss

“I talk during,” I said matter-of-factly as I put the blanket over him. “And dirty.  And dick.  and even though it’s inappropriate and against the rules, I’d love for you to bury yours in me so hard it hurts.  I dream about you fucking me like an animal three nights a week, and the other four you fuck me like you own me.”
His tongue found its way into my mouth.  He tasted like a bad decision.  He tasted like the thing you always said you shouldn’t have done, but didn’t regret anyway.  A little bit of starlight.  The tart sting of the forbidden and the sweetness of a sin you think you’re getting away with.

Favorite Quotes

“Some things are in the stars.  I was meant to protect you.  And you were meant to rule.”
“I want what I love, and I love what I want.  What I want is you.  You came to me as a lady and now you are a queen.  I’ve never met a woman like you, I don’t even deserve you, but I have you.  and having you, I’m not giving you up.”
“I want a life with you, because you accept me. All of me. I am whole with you. Only you.”

HOT Quotes from the books included in Get Naked!

Driven by K Bromberg ★★★★★ ~Adrian

“I want to feel that violent passion of his wash over me as he takes me with reckless abandon. I want him to dominate me so that I surge up and crash down without a thought.”

Beg Tease Submit by CD Reiss ★★★★★  ~Angie

“I get off on this,” he said. “You obeying me is what turns me on. Don’t deny me.”

Playing with Her Heart by Lauren Blakely

“I move with him, letting him touch me, kiss me, taste my body like I’m his canvas and he’s painting me with his tongue.”

Free Me by Laurelin Paige

“I knew who I was and what my purpose was. I hadn’t been made to be noticed or adored. And this man— this man not only noticed and adored, but he worshipped.”

Favorite Quotes

“I hope you don’t have any plans,” he whispered as he put his hand up my shirt. “Because once that door opens, you’re mine.”
“He ran his hand over my pants and pressed at my crotch. “Oh, God.” “I want you,” he said into my ear. “And when we get back into that apartment, I’m taking you.” I pushed against him in answer, jerking my hips against the flat of his fingers. Yes, yes, and yes. Everything, yes.”
“Yet all I could think about was how much I wanted to take Laine to bed. Feel her twisted under me, hear her cry out for me. I wanted to share sweat and skin, to blend a scent of our own making.”

Coda by CD Reiss

Favorite Quotes

This dominant beast was built to fuck and to hurt and to live.
You are mine. Any time. Any place. Without questions. You get on your knees when I say. You spread your legs when I say. You open your mouth and take whatever I put in it. Do you understand?
The triangle between her legs was a promise of compliance and unyielding pleasure.
I own you. I own your filthy mouth. I own your dirty mind. When you get wet thinking about fucking, it’s mine. Every drop from you. I own your every thought. You are my property.
I wanted to put my fingers and tongue inside her, my cock, everywhere all at once. Every act of ownership felt incomplete to the totality of my love.

Favorite Quotes

“And what’s your job in all this?”
“My job is to fuck you until the neighbors think I’m murdering you.”
“You’re garbage.” I was clothed in him, a corset laced tight with desire and pain. I wanted his fingers to dig into me and find my filth, my foulness. Only he could find it and grind it out. There was only one way to do that. There had only ever been one way. “Fuck me. Fuck me hard, you worthless piece of shit.”
“You’re going to cry, Contessa. But not in pain.” He put my knee over the hood of the car, and he got in even deeper, groaning. He went slowly, rotating his hips gently.
“You won’t weep from being hurt. Not from me. You’re going to shed tears from coming so hard you forget who you are. And when you return, you’ll remember you’re mine, and you’ll cry then too.” He pumped me hard, once, and I screamed in surprise. “And you’ll cry again.”
“I was going to break from the inside out of he didn’t bend me into nameless shapes.”
“Respect isn’t treating me like I’m made of sugar.  Because I’m not.  I’m made of cum and saliva.  I’m made of salty sweat, and I taste like fucking.  I sound like an orgasm that’s so hard you can’t even scream, and I fuck like a closed fist.”
“Do it until I break,” I hissed. “Make me cry.”
Who could be angry while laughing and wearing a shirt covered in cum?

KICK

“I knew who I was. I was a celebrity without talent. I was an heiress. I was a whore. I was a party waiting to happen. I was an addict. I was his, and in that last definition—that I was owned by Deacon I knew my place in the chaos.”

“Since the minute I saw you,” he said into my neck, “I’ve wanted to open your legs and take you.”
I grunted. I didn’t think I’d ever grunted during sex, but that wasn’t sex. That was two animals mating under a bush.
I pressed my forehead to his shoulder and put my hands on his biceps, and without an ounce of tenderness, he pulled my hair back and down until I was on my knees with the slick head of his cock against my cheek, and he stood over me.
“Take it. Now.”
“The next time we fuck, it’s going to be for a few hours, and you’re going to need to be wheeled out.”
I reached into his underwear and got out his cock. “This works.”
“It’s for fucking you.”
I snapped the shower door open. “Never stop putting that cock in me.”
“Relax, sweet girl. Let me take you. Let me own you.”
“You’re mine. I am who I am, and I own you. That’s all it is.”
“Mi amore, I’ll break you with my love and put you back together.”

COVER REVEAL + TEASER: Spin by C.D. Reiss

Imagine me, jumping up and down, squeeing, all grabby-hands-like for this book, because that’s what’s happening in my head. The imagining part; not the actual doing. I can’t jump up and down. If you’ve birthed two babies within 18 months of one another, you know why.

Unlike me and my ridiculousness, C.D. Reiss is an artist, both of the written word and with her vision. Songs of Submission is by far one of my favorite series of all time. They are wholly worth your time and pennies, and I expect Spin to be just the same.

Book: Spin—Songs of Corruption

Author: C.D. Reiss

Release Date: March 15, 2014

This teaser alone is enough to make me want to sell a kidney to get this book.

Spin Teaser Quote

Blurb

Antonio Spinelli blew through my orderly life like a cyclone.

Gorgeous and passionate, with a breathtaking brutality, he put me under his spell the moment he touched me, drawing me into his underworld of risk, violence and betrayal.

And I discovered, just as this sophisticated savage didn’t trust me, I didn’t trust myself. Something happened to me. Some alchemy from the heat between us.

I discovered I was a savage, too.

“I get off on this,” he said. “You obeying me is what turns me on. Don’t deny me.”
She kissed like she meant it, and from the very first night, she enjoyed fucking without reservation or shame.
“This is us together. I own it. This body is my plaything. Your ache is mine. Your orgasm is mine. Your hunger is mine. Your dirty thoughts are mine.”
“I’m yours. My pleasure is yours. My wet pussy is yours. You own me, Jonathan. You are the master of my fuck.”
“What we have isn’t something we made. It’s something that existed before we even met.”
