10 Erotic Romance Novels Worth Reading
I went through a phase when I only read erotic novels and an occasional Mills & Boon. I think I’ve read most of the books on Goodreads Popular Erotic Novels List. Frankly, I don’t quite agree with the list. Popular does not mean Good. Hence, I’ve compiled this list of my favorite erotic-romance novels which I hope you too will enjoy.
10 Erotic Novels Worth Reading
Fixed on You
Call Me Irresistible
Susan Elizabeth Philips
All the Possibilities
Aftershock and Afterburn
Mistress of the Groom
The Delta of Venus
1. Fixed on You
Rarely do I see a storyline as organized and carefully crafted as Laurelin Paige’s Fixed on You series. First thing’s first, it has a real, developed story, and quite a lovely one, which is often missing from your usual erotic hardliners. I love the dialogues, I love the characters, I love the chemistry between them. And I also love that for a change the characters don't have an abused past. They have a past, but not the type we usually read about.
2. Beautiful Stranger
If you are looking for good sex, with a hot British million-dollar venture capitalist and a one of a kind, hardworking heiress, no less, then you’ve got the right book. This is a standalone book which you should definitely read for the sex. I like that the girl is in finance, equally rich and broken from a previous relationship and that it is the guy who heals her; it's usually the other way around for most novels.
Now, the sex is not very explicit, but it is sort of cute. The dialogues are witty; the banter would make you smile stupidly and it is more of a romance novel than an erotic one. It’s sweet, a little sexy and whole lot fun. I have read a couple of other Katy Evans novels and I think this one stands out.
4. Call Me Irresistible
Susan Elizabeth Philip
This is a romance novel and there’s not enough sex, if that's what you're looking for. But it is amazing, otherwise it would not have been on the list. The story-line (again I am emphasizing the story-line) is beautifully written. The girl is spunky and the guy is gorgeous and it starts out as an I-first-hate-you-and-then-I-love-you story, but like I said it is beautifully crafted and a definite must-read to warm your cold heart and satiate your thirst for romance.
5. Willing Victim
Yes, back to sex. This one is a full-blown erotic novel aimed to make you...you know what. A standalone with lots of sex and roleplay and a little bit of BDSM, and trust me, it’s written wonderfully. I am not much of a BDSM reader because it sort of makes me cringe, but this book, this book gets it. It doesn’t over-do the stuff. This book, however, is not for you if you are looking for billionaire playboys with a broken past. The guy is NOT a billionaire nor is the girl and it’s a nice change.

6. All the Possibilities
You’ve probably heard of Nora Roberts, possibly even read some of her books. I don’t know why, but from all the books that I read by this author, this one definitely stands apart. It’s a romance novel just like a million others, but this one was…sweet. The story follows a US senator and how he tries to woo the former first daughter of the United States. I love both the characters which is kind of rare for me (usually I like either the girl or the boy) and like I have already said, there is only one adjective I can find: sweet.
7. Aftershock and Afterburn
You might have read Sylvia Day’s more popular Cross series and maybe even liked it. But I have sort of come to a saturation point where I can’t read books with characters who have an abused past and a series which is being dragged on for way too long. Anyway, this book is hot, sexy and just about everything that you want in an erotic novel. I love the guy in this novel: he is pretty much one of my favourite erotic novel heroes of all time and the girl is fine, not spineless; that’s all I need anyway.
8. Mistress of the Groom
It’s a romance novel which is well-written with a lovely story line and characters that are tough and hot. There is sexual tension and there is one really hot sex scene which makes it worthwhile the read. I loved the way the story started and how it unfolded and concluded in a sweet, romantic way. There are few romance novels that are well crafted and well-written and this is obviously one of them.
9. The Law of Attraction
Lawyer Love: Yah. I couldn’t really make out if it was an erotic novel or a romance one. It was like…sort of in-between, which makes it even more delightful. I love the fact that there are no silly quarrels and break-ups. It’s a fun book with fun dialogues and a couple of sexy scenes and two very lovable characters.
10. The Delta of Venus
I…haven’t read the book. It’s on my wish list but I haven’t read it. But even without reading the book, I know it’s going to be absolutely mind-blowing. We all know that when it comes to erotic novels, it’s Anais Nin. And that’s why it is actually sad that I haven’t read the novel…or any of her novels, yet. But I am going to fix that and I’ll come back to you.
Which of the above books have you read?
