message 25: by Mike (new)

Mike Why can't we have gay romance books? Some of those are just as good as regular ones.


message 26: by Vixen (last edited Oct 25, 2012 06:26PM) (new)

Vixen Can anyone suggest another erotica series with the same couple throughout? All of the other series I have read have different couples for each book in the series. It is nice to read about the same two people, and know that their story will continue in other books. I have also read Bared to You and 50, loved it.


message 27: by Missey (new)

Missey Pierson The "Rescue Me" series by Kallypso Masters basically has 3 couples and the stories continue thru each of the books. The first book "Master of Arms" introduces you to the characters seperately. Then for the next 3, each book is dedicated to one of the couple's but has the other characters in the books as well. So you need to read them in order to know what's going on. I don't want to give too much away ;) I really enjoyed all 4 books. I CAN'T WAIT for the rest to come out! Oh...and the first book is free on Kindle.

bared to you was just as hot as 50 shades and they are the same ppl in all 3 books

Hi Mike! There are many lists out there with M/M erotic romance. I wanted to create a list that had a M/F main characters for readers that are not interested in gay erotica or have not read M/M or F/F erotica yet. ;)


message 31: by Nia (new)

Nia This list has been cleaned up again and has no duplicates. :) Please remember that this list is not for paranormal, fantasy, apocalyptical, science fiction, high school, or gay (M/M or F/F) erotic romance.

For those of you that like adding Young Adult romance, please note that High School romance books are NOT allowed but College romance is. This is an erotic list and high school is not the appropriate setting for erotica. TY!


message 32: by Nia (new)

Nia Thank you for loving my list! Please contribute to the list and add your favorites. I'm looking forward to seeing your picks. :)


message 33: by Krissy (new)

Krissy thank you for putting this list together! so many books i never would have stumbled across if not for this list. so excited don't know what to read next!

message 35: by Sarah ♥ Vutch forever ♥ (last edited Oct 27, 2012 10:53AM) (new)

Sarah ♥ Vutch forever ♥ Wicked Ties is awesome and not pseudo-BDSM like 50 Shades. I cannot understand how the latter is on the first place.

Btw, why not gay couples? That's discriminating.


message 36: by Nia (last edited Oct 29, 2012 11:52PM) (new)

Nia Hi Sarah. There are many lists out there with M/M erotic romance. I wanted to create a list for books that were similar to Fifty Shades - an erotic romance between an alpha-male and a female. Not everyone is interested in gay erotica or has read M/M or F/F erotica yet. ;)

There are a few great books on this list that have ménage, polyamorous or gay characters in the story, but the main erotic romance MUST be between a male and a female. Thanks!


message 37: by Brina (new)

Brina I think this list is great for finding new books! Thanks for putting it together and keeping it as is. I loved 50 shades and have found myself hunting for similar books.

Thanks again!

Gabby Why is Easy on there? It's on the YA Fiction list for the Goodreads choice awards...

I think you are thinking of Knights of the Boardroom series by Joey W. Hill

Hi Gabby! I haven't read it but I see that it is college based and it seems popular with voters. College romance or college erotica is fine. High school erotic romance should not be on this list.

Jenn Debbie wrote: "has anyone read any books by Selena Kitt, I heard her name but have not seen anything"

hey ive read a few of her books Heidi and the kaiser would be my fav, her books (most) don't actually have happy endings just be warned they are really shorty and to e see like half the story is missing.


message 48: by Nia (new)

Nia Hi Jenn! Me too! The great thing is that books keep coming up the list so the choices are endless. :) Make sure to vote for your faves!
