Rhapsodic by Laura Thalassa

Callie is a Siren, who’s greatly in debt to a powerful being known simply as The Bargainer. She has been in debt to him since she asked for help covering up her stepfather’s murder at 16.

This is an urban fantasy novel, meaning that it’s our world, but with magic. And romance. And…sexiness.

Thassala has a gift for writing characters who actually have intelligence, depth, and wit, and because of that, her writing is a joy to read. While all of her writing is absolutely worth reading (if urban fantasy with awesome heroines and romance is your thing), this is a particular favorite of mine and the first in a series.


Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines

Blaire is a strong, beautiful woman who’s been through the ringer after the death of her mother. She’s a bit jaded.

Rush is a bad boy who is both mysterious and a puppy dog for the leading lady. Sparks fly, sexiness and plot twists ensue, and then there are three more books in the series.


The Mighty Storm by Samantha Towle

Jake and Trudy were best friends. Jake’s father was an abusive jerk, and at 14, Jake gets moved out of state.

Years after not responding to any of Trudy’s calls or letters, Jake becomes a rock star, a really hot and sexy rock star. Trudy became a music journalist who interviews Jake post-rehab. Eventually, shockingly, they get naked. Explicitly so.


Feeling Hot by Elle Kennedy

Two hot Navy SEALs, one lady, there’s a plot, something about an abusive ex, but mostly there’s a lot of naked. Let’s be honest, this is one of the ones you’re not reading for the plot. The dude on the cover doesn’t even have a head, just abs.


Craving Flight by Tamsen Parker

Have you ever wondered what would happen if a devout Jewish woman married a devout Jewish widower and they both happened to be into BDSM? Throw in struggles with personal identity and choices within culture and religion and you’ve got this story! Very sexy with very well written characters.

Let’s face it, the books on this list are entertaining, but they probably aren’t life changing. Looking for something that might shift your world? Check out 25 Life-Changing Books For You To Add To Your Library.
