The best unforgettable spicy romance reads

Who am I?

I’m an indie romance author obsessed with all things romance, the spicier the better! I’m all about the happy ending, so all my books feature a happy ever after (HEA) or happy for now (HFN).

Jax: An Age Gap, Second Chance at Love MC Romance

What is my book about?

I wasn’t always the Desert Aces MC President. When I was 20 years old my parents were killed by a drunk driver. I was young and stupid and decided to prospect for the Desert Aces MC in Las Vegas. At the time, I didn’t care about its lawlessness. But I began to realize the club was on a dangerous path to destruction. And that if we didn’t clean up our act, our club wouldn’t survive.

I’ve given everything to my club and it’s time I take a little something for myself. I need to find a woman and settle down. My mind drifts to Diana, all those years ago. I regret letting her walk away. But that all changes when she drives up to the compound gates, looking gorgeous as ever.

Why this book?

Although this is book 4, I recommend starting with the first book of the series. I chose this book because it ended the American Street Kings with a bang and it’s my favorite out of all the books in the series, even though it’s super dark (readers should note the trigger warnings). Throughout the book, there were so many twists and turns that I wasn’t sure how, or even if, Ink and Neon would get their happy ever after (HEA).

Tattooed Heart

By Mica Rae,

Book cover of Tattooed Heart

Why this book?

I loved this book because it has heat and heart. It’s a second chance at love romance with a well-developed plot and extremely likable characters. And did I mention the main character, Bull, is a tattoo artist who owns his tattoo studio? Swoon! I couldn’t put the book down and rooted for Bull and Tarah to get their happy ever after (HEA).

Filthy Crown: A Single Dad Age Gap Romance

Why this book?

This book was the first work I’ve ever read by this author, and to say I was blown away is an understatement! It’s an age-gap romance with daddy kink. That being said, I don’t normally read daddy kink, but it didn’t take away from how good the book was. It actually made it spicier, which I loved!

Book cover of Naked

Why this book?

I read this book because it was recommended to me by a friend. And I’m glad I did. It sucked me in and I literally read the entire collection in less than a week. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down! I rarely reread books, but this series might get me to do just that! It’s a truly enjoyable read.

Reckless Heir (Underworld Kings)

By Jenika Snow,

Book cover of Reckless Heir (Underworld Kings)

Why this book?

This book intrigued me from the start, as it has an arranged marriage trope involving the Bratva and the Cosa Nostra mafia. As soon as I read the blurb, I was like, ‘Won’t they just kill each other and be done with it?’ But alas, no. The main character is a pawn between the two entities and the author intertwines the plot beautifully, creating one amazing book.
