Top 5 Erotic Romance Books

Updated on September 2, 2013

Best Erotic Books

The best erotic romance books don't take long to make their mark in the book industry. Unfortunately, due to their mature nature, they don't get publicized in the open like most typical romance books do. Aside from a few best sellers such as Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You, there aren't a lot of hardcore, erotic romance books feeling up the shelves, listed in magazines or mentioned in the news.

Since erotic romance books don't get a lot of media attention, the best ones can be hard to find. Finding the best erotic romance books is as simple as doing a little research. Just as you have stumbled upon this page full of my suggestions for erotic romance, you can Google them online or browse through the Best Erotic Romance Books on Below you will find some of the hottest erotic romance books available online in both paperback and Kindle editions. These books were chosen to for the list due to their high ratings and best reviews.

Bared to You Series by Sylvia Day

Bared to You is Like Fifty Shade of Grey!

Bared to You is one of the best erotic romance books I have ever read. It's about as close to Fifty Shades of Grey as you are gonna get, but yet, still has a much different plot. Bared to You is about a young woman named Eva who just moved to Manhattan. She quickly meets Gideon Cross who is not only rich and sexy but just happens to own and work in the same building as Eva. Shortly after the two meet they find themselves riding the same elevator alone. Gideon bluntly asks if she is sleeping with anyone and when she asks why... he tells her he wants to know because he wants to be the one sleeping with her. As the days go by the two keep bumping into each other and finally agree to a sexual relationship. Eva only gives in once he agrees they will have some personal time together that will always be sexually related- but, they both agree they will not have a relationship based on love.

Bared to You is followed by Reflected in You. Reflected in you picks up right where Bared to You left off and continues with the same twisted love story where both Eva and Gideon are unable to show affection without raw sex. Just like the first book, Reflected in You is full of erotic romance that will keep you on your toes wanting more! But it doesn't end there... Entwined With You is the 3rd book in the series and was released May of 2013.

      I read Fifty Shades and concluded that the marketing team did a fantastic job getting these books talked about. The story line was OK but the whole thing could have been told in one book.

      The thing that annoyed me in the first book was the continued use of the phrase "he hitched his breath" - I had never heard this expression before but, by the time I had finished the first book, had read it countless time. the second book featured "he fisted her hair" a lot too.

      Sorry if this doesn't fit with the general hype for these books - it's just my opinion. :)
