Release by Suzanne Clay

Release by Suzanne Clay

Do you like a boss/employee taboo scenario that takes consent and power equality seriously? A hero who wants the heroine’s submission to come from a position of choice and strength, and to also make space for her own pleasure? Are you open to a ‘meet cute’ in a glory hole? Then Suzanne Clay’s Release may…

Bass-Ackwards by Eris Adderly

Bass-Ackwards by Eris Adderly

Eris Adderly’s Bass-Ackwards is the sweetest book you’ll ever read that starts with the hero committing egregious workplace sexual harassment. A standout working-class erotic romance that starts out pushing consent boundaries and gradually works its way backwards to heartwarming, Bass-Ackwards is a kinky, cuddly contradiction that I enjoyed from start to finish – or maybe,…

Electric Idol by Katee Robert

Electric Idol by Katee Robert

Katee Robert continues her exploration of Greek and Roman mythological tales with Electric Idol, which retells the story of Cupid (or Eros) and Psyche. While the world building is good and the romance well-paced, the tale misses out entirely on the best point of tension in the legend, making it something of a miss for…

Truth or Dare by Brianna Ocampo

Truth or Dare by Brianna Ocampo

Looking for a spicy friends-to-lovers erotic romance that really earns its “burning” rating? Look no further than Brianna Ocampo’s Truth or Dare. Cassie has yearned for her best friend Tino since they were teens, but after her one overture was rebuffed nine years earlier, she’s done her best to keep a lid on her feelings….

Neon Gods by Katee Robert

Neon Gods by Katee Robert

Persephone and Hades are the O.G.s of the Beauty and the Beast archetype, which is one of my favorites, so I’m always game for a retelling. But if this particular Persephone story disappeared to the Underworld, I wouldn’t really miss it. Olympus, in this version, appears to be an East Coast city-state in an alternate…

Neon Gods by Katee Robert

Neon Gods by Katee Robert

I’ve always been a fan of fantasy romances, and so Neon Gods easily caught my eye as a mix of fantasy, Greek mythology, and erotica. While it took me a little while to orient myself in the author’s world, overall this book proved to be a promising start to this new series by Katee Robert….

Claimed by Elle Kennedy

Claimed by Elle Kennedy

Why should YA have all the dystopia fun? Elle Kennedy takes the post-apocalyptic US in a decidedly adult direction in Claimed, the first book in her Outlaws series of erotic romances. Rather than marry the psychopath who wants her hand, Hudson Lane fled her privileged life in the city and joined outlaws living in what…

Stroke of Luck by Opal Carew

Stroke of Luck by Opal Carew

Opal Carew slaps together beaucoup ménages à trois and an incidental plot to create second chance romance Stroke of Luck. An enthusiastic reader of polyamorous relationships, I was disappointed by Carew’s lack of imagination in and out of the bedroom, by the male protagonists – a predator and his accomplice – and the milquetoast heroine. On the…

After Hours by Cara McKenna

After Hours by Cara McKenna

It takes extraordinary authors to make extraordinary books out of ordinary people. Fortunately, Cara McKenna has what it takes. Erin Coffey earned her LPN while nursing her dying grandmother, so Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital is her first professional position – one she only took to be close to her disastrous sister and beloved nephew. Kelly Robak…
