Lost in a Good Book: Must-Read Erotic Romance Novels to Try This Summer

So you read 50 Shades of Grey. Or maybe you haven’t yet. Either way, the simple fact is, there are so many more options in exciting and dynamic erotic stories available beyond EL James’ one simple series, that you’re absolutely limiting yourself by not expanding your erotic reading horizons. This summer, take a steamy detour and check out some of these sizzling selections to get your imagination running wild:


Long Hard Ride

The first installment of the Rough Riders series, Lorelei James’ sultry cowboy ménage story features wannabe wild-child protagonist Channing Kinkaid and her sexy exploits out on the rodeo circuit. With lots of hot three way action, this smoking series leaves Mr. Grey and Anna’s playroom in the dust.


Crash Into You

Part one of Roni Loren’s Loving on the Edge series, Crash Into You is more a suspenseful thrilling romance than straight up erotica, but that doesn’t stop it from being a sexy, sultry BDSM adventure. Mystery, murder and intrigue combine to make this one exciting summer read.


Taken by the Board: The Price of Admission

If you’re looking for a smolderingly sexy quick summer story Roxie Wilde’s erotic Novella is the way to go. When a billionaire boss offers a hardworking young executive the promotion of his dreams, there’s only one caveat–his gorgeous young wife. Is the eager young couple willing to give in to one night of carnal lust with the board of executives for everything they’ve always wanted? Not for the faint of heart, this is one story with lots of raw, explicit sex.



A sassy, sexy, funny romantic comedy in book form, Nuts is the first in Alice Clayton’s new Hudson Valley series, and features a west coast transplant personal chef, a witty farmer, and plenty of sparks. If you’re looking for a lighthearted romance with just enough sex appeal to have your heart tripping this summer, Nuts might be just yummy enough for you.



If you like your erotica a little on the dark side, Pepper Winters’ Pennies is a wickedly sensual erotic tale full of twists, turns, and deliciously naughty surprises. Far from a traditional erotic romance, this is one story that will make you gasp and squirm in more than one way. But if you’re looking for something dark and different, this might be just the ticket to get your summer heated up.


Owning the Intern

Another selection by newcomer Roxie Wilde, this steamy selection is a BDSM quickie set in a law office. 50 Shades it isn’t, as young, bratty protagonist very quickly discovers that she quite likes the world of dominance and submission that she’s found herself wrapped up in. Giving herself over to her older boss turns out to push her boundaries in the sexiest way possible–and it may just do the same for you as you skim through it.
