Sex is a taboo subject, people often prefer not to talk about it. So instead of asking questions when we were unsure we would scour the internet for porn or watch reruns of Sex and the City to savour every word that Carrie Bradshaw and Co. had to say. In recent days we turn to erotic fiction to learn more about what sex can offer. Fifty Shades of Grey is the prime example for this, but there are many other novels out there which can teach you a thing or two. Here’s a selection to get you started:
The CrossFire series by Sylvia Day
Bared to You (book 1) follows 24-year-old Eva Trammel, who comes from a wealthy background but is keen to make it on her own in the world. She chooses to start at the bottom and work her way up through an advertising agency in New York, where she meets the tall, dark and handsome Gideon Cross. An instant connection is made between the pair and they embark upon an intense and fragile romance that will leave you begging for more until the very last page.
The Hacker series by Meredith Wild
Hardwired, the first novel in the series introduces Erica Hathaway, a fiesty university graduate desperate to forge a brilliant future for herself in order to make up for a troubled past. Things seem to be going well, until she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who can make or break her fledgling start up company. All business logic goes out the window because of a certain arrogant and gorgeous investor who seems determined to ruin everything she’s ever worked for.
The Fixed Trilogy by Laurelin Paige
Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out; move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan. That is until Alayna meets the new owner of the nightclub, Hudson Pierce and her whole world is turned upside down. She knows he’s everything she should stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check, but he’s fixed his sights on her and she’s going to find it tough to resist his gravitational pull.
