Top 10 Intense And "Angsty" Romance novels

Updated on July 23, 2013

Top Intense And "Angsty" Romance Novels.

After 50 Shades of Gray took off last year the demand for novels with a dark, erotic and down right possessive male hero have shot up; I myself have been drawn to these type of books and its not always an easy task to find books with the same kind of chemistry as Anastasia and Christian.

After searching and reading many books I have found my top 10 novels. So this page has been set up for those men/woman craving a romantic book with possessive, jealous, overly protective, controlling bad boys and love/ hate relationship too. Similar to Christian Grey from Fifty Shade of Grey.

"Are these books like 50 Shades?"

Romance

No, these books are not all like 50 Shades of Gray. These books are purely just great novels I have read and enjoyed after the trilogy; Some of these books are just as erotic while others are more YA.

Since reading Christian and Anastasia's story reading has become one of my passions. There are many great novels out there that are just as good if not better and I want other people to enjoy the characters stories just as I did.

Top 5 possessive boyfriend novels on Kindle

My top 5 possessive boyfriend novels that I absolutely loved after 50 Shades of Gray. After reading these book I was left, wanting more and excited to find out more.

When it comes to the books I enjoy I expect to be pulled in and immersed into the story; a real page turner. With each of these novel listed below they all have a sense of that, if not more and once I reached the end I wanted another book.

Some of these books are part of a series but they are well worth the read...
