The best romance books to make your toes curl and your heart race

The Books I Picked & Why

Beautiful Bastard

By Christina Lauren

Beautiful Bastard

Why this book?

This was my first steamy romance read, the one that got me hooked on erotic romance and still one of my favorites. From the moment Bennett’s hand landed on Chloe’s thigh in the boardroom my pulse spiked and didn’t stop racing until the last page. Bennett and Chloe’s chemistry is a masterclass, enemies to lovers hot.

The Takeover

By T. L. Swan

The Takeover

Why this book?

I loved this book with a capital L. Tristan Miles is one of my all-time favorite alphas. Cleverly crafted, he is the perfect/lethal combination of super sexy and really funny, I laughed out loud at some of his banter. I was so excited by the book I sent kindle copies to my 'fluffer' book club friends. This is the best of the Miles High books so far and if you love erotic romance I cannot recommend it enough.

Blindfolded Innocence

By Alessandra Torre

Blindfolded Innocence

Why this book?

Alessandra Torre (in my opinion) is at her best when writing sexy romance. Julia is an ambitious law intern who, on her first day at work, is warned to keep away from sexy, alpha Brad de Luca. The writing is fast-paced, addictive, and seduced me into barrelling straight into book 2 in the series. I particularly loved the massage scene involving Julia, which juxtaposed into a scene with Brad –illicit tension heaven!

Then You Happened

By K. Bromberg

Then You Happened

Why this book?

I am a fan of K Bromberg (famous for the Driven series) and her all-the-feels writing. I picked this book because it is my favorite of her stand-alone romances. I'm definitely a sucker for a cowboy and when they are alpha, sexy and swoop in to save the day, it is the perfect cocktail to lose yourself in.

The Brit

By Jodi Ellen Malpas

The Brit

Why this book?

I want to include a fellow British writer in my list and JEM is my favorite for suspenseful steamy stories. The Brit is the first in the Unlawful Men series. Dark and broken, mafia anti-hero Danny Black is brooding and bad. He is not supposed to fall in love with the women he takes as ‘collateral’ in a deadly game of power. Rose Cassidy has learnt to be tough to survive. Danny sees her as the mirror of himself. Their twisted attraction is not for the feint-hearted but I loved it!
