The day I discovered romance and erotica books, was an awakening for my younger self. I remember finding some paperback with a too big muscle man with luscious long hair and women with fantastic boobs and flowing hair. I hid it in my bag and read it in secret. I knew somehow, that this was a book I shouldn’t be reading but I did it and loved it. #RebeliousBookReader
Somewhere along the way, I stopped reading erotica but a few years ago, I stumbled upon the genre again. Here are a few erotic and romance books that should be on your radar!

The Duke and I by Julia Quinn
If you were one of the millions who watched The Bridgertons on Netflix, then this is the book for you. This is the first book in which the series is based on. Now you have the added visuals of Duke of Hasting and Daphne Bridergton to really see the book come to life in the comfort of your own bed.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
You should start with the first book of this series, A Court Of Thorns and Roses but if you just want to get straight to the real smut, head to Chapter 55. This series centres around Feyre Archeron and takes places in a world where humans and Fae’s live. Magic, smouldering men, and immortal lovers are just a few of the reasons this book has such a fanbase.
Power of Five Book 1 – A Reverse Harem by Alex Liddel
This book is available on Amazon Unlimited and if you like the idea of fantasy and multiple men then this reverse harem story is for you. Personally, I love a good reverse harem and the first few books in this series deliver a little bit of fantasy for every gal or guy.
Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai
Truth be told, the cheesier the cover, the more likely I will love the erotica! This is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet where the main characters, are both scions of a massive grocery store chain. Their families have been wrenched apart in a business deal. They meet up still for one day a year for a quick, no-strings-attached sex sesh but… well, you’ll just have to read to see what happens!
The Roommate by Rosie Danan
The Roommate by Rosie Danan is about a woman who moves across the country with the person she has been crushing on since a child. But then, Clara ends up meeting Josh. A charming stranger who she has zilch in common with but that doesn’t seem to stop them from having fantastic sex.
The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice
If you liked Fifty Shades of Grey and Twilight, then you are going to LOVE this book. Rice mixes vampire legends with erotica. This is an intense retelling of Sleeping Beauty. The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty removes all timid elements and instead makes it sexually charged story where instead of waking the princess up with a kiss, the prince awakens her through an S&M-filled sexual initiation.
