Carrie H I voted for "In The Stars" by Sabrina Simon. It's a fresh read. Yeah it's sexy but a heck of a story too. Very funny!


message 2: by Louise (new)

Louise I'm sorry, but what is outlander doing on this list? I like it, don't get me wrong, but isn't this list for people, who want's some erotica to read, because they either didn't like the way the fifty books were written and they still want the sexy - or because they want more after they read it - If I was picking up the Outlander books, expecting sexuality, I'd be disapointed, and that's too bad, because it's really fine books.
My top votes goes to Tiffany Reisz... AMAZING books!

The list description does say 'what romance or erotica novel', so romance is allowed. I know plenty of people who read 50 shades looking for the romance, the sexy parts for them were just a bonus. I guess it really just depends exactly why someone wanted to read 50 shades in the first place! :)


message 4: by Flora (new)

Flora Smith I've noticed that some books are on this list more than once.
