Women are on the hunt for the top books like 50 Shades of Grey and lucky for them, we have them listed here! Whether looking for a series or stand-alone books like 50 Shades of Grey, you'll find several in the list below that will keep it's readers on the edge of their seat and coming back for more!
After completing the series, new Christian Grey fans continue to search for more books similar to 50 Shades of Grey I, know, because I, too, was one of the many who couldn't get enough of the series and had to find the next best thing! After finishing the FSOG trilogy, there are several more books that will keep you coming back for more and just as hot and bothered!
Bared to You Book #1
Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel
Sylvain Reynard's Crossfire Series?
Bared to You, by Sylvia Day, is the first novel in the Crossfire Series. Bared to You is the best set of books like 50 Shades of Grey and the closest that you are going to find. As a big FSOG fan, I can honestly say this is the best series I have read that is like 50 Shades of Grey! It some ways I think it is better!
The plot includes a rich billionaire (don't they all?) and a young female counter-part. Unlike Ana, the female character is much more realistic and comes from her own high class family. That and she doesn't "murmur' all the time. The story is somewhat similar to Fifty Shades except for that it is much more hardcore and graphic, I guess you could say. I think it is also important to mention that there is no punishment or BDSM. For the 50 Shades of Grey readers who had a hard time getting past the demanding and sometimes violent scenes in the series, you will appreciate the Bared to You Series much better! It has the same concept, yet doesn't include the BDSM, 'back door action' or sometimes forceful reaction from Christian Grey.
UPDATE: June 2013- Entwined with You, the 3rd novel in the Crossfire Series was released. After reading it, there will obviously be a 4th edition! :) More of the ever-so-fine Gideon Cross!!! Can't wait!

The Breathless Trilogy by Maya Banks
The Breathless Trilogy by Maya Banks is another fantastic book series like 50 Shades of Grey. The series consists of three amazingly steamy novels; Rush, Fever and Burn.
The series starts out with Gabe falling fast for his best friend's little sister, Mia (an adult of course). The affair is not only hot, obsessive and every-so-fast, but Mia also knows it's a huge risk of unveiling her hidden secret. However, considering the hot sex combined with the fact that she has had a secret crush on Gabe since she was in high school, Mia can't pull herself from Gabe and knows that she is risking everything in the event that someone finds out about her hidden past.
Temptation Book #1
The Temptation Series by K. M. Golland
A Steamy Series with a Female Character that is Married!!!
The Temptation Series is similar to 50 Shades of Grey with an erotic story plot that involves a rich billionaire. Other than that, it's definitely it's own story, which is one of the things I enjoyed about this series.
A little bit about The Temptation Series by K. M. Golland...
Alexis has just returned to work after 9 years of staying home to raise her children.She's happy with her life, husband and kids.
So what could possibly be the problem? Her hot, billionaire boss, Mr. Bryce, that insists that she will one day be his. All the while, Alexis vows to never cheat on her husband or ruin her marriage. But something has to give... Will Alexis break her vows or will she break her Bryce's heart?
The series continues on over a series of 3 novels; Temptation, Satisfaction, and last but not least, Fulfillment. If you enjoy a steamy romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat while tugging at your heartstrings then The Temptation Series is a must!
*** Don't have a Kindle? You can purchase Temptation, by K. M. Golland, in any format for any reader at Smashwords.com for only $3.99.

Gabriel's Inferno #1
One of the Best Romance Series like 50 Shades of Grey
Gabriel's Inferno is one of the best romance series of all times and very much like Fifty Shades of Grey. This series consist of novels, Gabriel's Inferno and Gabriel's Rapture, and now the announcement of a 3rd novel, Gabriel's Rapture, to be released December 3rd, 2013.
I can honestly say that this is one of the best romance stories/series I have EVER read!!! It is awesome! It's on the same level as FSOG, very romantic and very steamy yet, somehow manages to do so in a very clean, non-graphic, not explicit, non- XXX rated way. I can't explain it- it's full of passion, sexy scenes and well just an all around great romance story!
About Gabriel's Inferno....
The Gabriel's Inferno series/trilogy is full of passion, romance and innocents. A simple college girl trying to make it own her and start her career... that is until her best friends brother just happens to be her professor who has the hots for her. The only problem, he doesn't realize it's his sister's friend until it's too late. And of course, there is always the blonde bimbo who wants her piece of the pie (the professor) and will get what she wants or get revenge!
While FSOG is much more erotic, the actual love story in the Gabriel's Inferno plot was much better. It is perfect for someone who wants a great, steamy romance without all the graphic details and obscene language found in Fifty Shades.

My Overall Favorite Book Like 50 Shades of Grey
Out of the dozens, if not hundreds of books like FSOG, many of which I have personally read, I would have to say that the Crossfire Series was my favorite in the terms of erotica romance. However, in the general 'steamy' romance category I would have to say Gabriel's Inferno!
Both series were great! Both were very well-written, though I would say Gabriel's Inferno was more 'tastefully' written and more original. While all the books I have listed were some of my favorites, those two series would be my highest recommendations!
