I bought a copy of Fit by Rebekah Weatherspoon back in June after hearing some good buzz about it, which honestly surprised me since it features a chubby heroine who begins a relationship with her personal trainer. Books about weight loss are typically stories I avoid, because they’re very hard to do without being completely offensive. So I bought it, and then inevitably put it on hold until I had a gap in my reading schedule, which happened to be last night. I finished it in one evening and absolutely loved it.
When I met with some folks from the Forever team during RWA last week, one of the publicists casually mentioned Kissed by the Wave, a mermaid erotica releasing next week from their Forever Yours imprint. I immediately begged her to email me a copy ASAP so I could read it on the plane — how could I not read a mermaid erotica?
The world Serena Gilley created consists of two parts — the human world and the Forbidden Realm, made up of all sorts of creatures. In order to keep the supernatural world a secret, faeries grant wishes so humans are kept happy (surprise, most of what humans wish for is sex). When mermaid Aliya sees human Devin bringing ladies back to his yacht for sexytimes night after night, she’s intrigued. But being half fish, things are a little complicated.
The wait is over, folks! This morning, Universal Pictures released the first trailer for the hotly anticipated movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, E.L. James's debut novel that took the world by storm. Watch the trailer below:
With a seductive new remix of Beyonce's "Crazy In Love", the trailer absolutely sizzles! Let us know what you love most about it and which scene you hope to see come to life on the big screen! Fifty Shades of Grey releases on February 14, 2015.
Since rules were made to be broken, we're doing a little something different for Hump Day this week. Instead of a steamy excerpt from an erotic romance, we've got scene from Katy Evans' upcoming New Adult novel Rogue. But let's be real, we all know New Adult can get pretty hot and heavy. This scene from Rogue is so tantilizing, Katy's publicist confessed it left her red-faced in her cubicle. So clearly we had to share it with you. Greyson ... we just, we have no words. Enjoy!
“Leave it on,” he murmurs, then he rolls me onto my back and yanks my arms up over my head.
“But I want to touch you,” I breathe, undulating my body against the weight of his.
He pins my arms up in one hand and pulls off his tie with the other, then he wraps it tightly around my wrists. “Tonight, only I touch.”
Happy Hump Day! Today we've got an excerpt that will take you back to your college years — who remembers cuddling up with their crush and watching a movie? Ok, maybe it's something you'd rather forget, but in Get What You Need by Jeanette Grey, geek Greg and jock Marshall test the attraction between them in a very hot way. Enjoy!
The room went dark and quiet all at once. There was just the faint glow of the still-powered-up TV, thin lines of light from the slats in the blinds. There was just silence.
Just the sound of breathing.
And that was all it took. Suddenly, although they weren’t touching, they were entirely too close. Greg could feel the static, could feel the inches between their bodies.
His swallow was an audible gulp in the quiet and the dark. He turned his neck, only to find eyes staring back at him. Marsh’s gaze was a buzz of electricity, something that had Greg lighting up from the inside out. Everything blurred except those twin points, and beneath them the curl of Marsh’s lips.
Ah, finally, another Hump Day. This week we've got a fun, steamy scene from Tamed by Emma Chase. If you've always wondered what you get when you combine a Taylor Swift sing-along with hot shower sex, this excerpt will enlighten you. Enjoy!
I wake up Saturday morning to the sounds of running water from the shower. And the screechy echo of Delores’s singing from inside it. “I Knew You Were Trouble” by Taylor Swift is probably the most annoying song ever written—but hearing Dee’s awful rendition just makes me chuckle.
Never one to waste good wood—particularly the morning kind—I grab a condom out of the nightstand drawer, slip out of bed, and step into the bathroom.
“... trouble . . . ah ... ah ...” Her eyes are closed and her head is tilted back to rinse her long hair under the spray. “... ah ...”
It's Hump Day, it's Hump Day! And what a Hump Day it is, because today we've got an excerpt from Jaci Burton's latest smokin' Play by Play novel, Straddling the Line. This flirty dinner scene leads up to baseball and football-playing hero (Because why should a sports romance hero play just one sport?) Trevor and sportscaster heroine Haven gettin' busy, because sometimes verbal foreplay is just as hot as the sex itself. Enjoy!
Trevor enjoyed seeing this side of Haven, when she put on her journalist’s hat and dug deep into her question box, drilling at him with probing questions.
Sure, he’d avoided her last question. It wasn’t like it hadn’t been asked of him before, and he’d given his standard pat answer.
But with Haven, he wanted to think about how to respond, because he wanted to be honest with her. Not with her network, but with her. And he wasn’t ready yet to answer.
This year, two highly anticipated romance novels titled The King release(d) — The King by J.R. Ward, which released in April, and The King by Tiffany Reisz, which comes out in December. This got me thinking, what would happen if Wrath and Kingsley met? Kingsley would probably try and have sex with Wrath, and Wrath likely wouldn't let him. (Someone please write that fic.) I doubt Beth would be into it either. And this of course would turn Kingsley on even more. My weird book fantasies aside, let's compare Wrath and Kingsley:
The King by J.R. Ward
The King by Tiffany Reisz

We did it! Hump Day is finally here! Are you ready for some more smut? This week we've got a scene from book two in Alice Clayton's Cocktail series, Rusty Nailed. Caroline and Simon are now "officially" in a relationship, but can they keep things hot when Caroline's job demands so much of her time? We think yes, she can make it work, and here's a scene to prove it. Enjoy!
“So you came home early just to see little ol’ me?” I breathed into his ear, sneaking a wet kiss just underneath it. His hands dug a little deeper into my hips as he shifted on the bed.
“Think you can help me with this turtleneck?”
“And then after that, you wanna show me your hammer?”
