9 Best Sexy Books Update 05/2022

There is one thing we have learned from the Bad Sex in Fiction awards: that… It can get very bad out there. It can be hard to get into a good mood when things like weird body parts descriptions and impossible mechanics get in the way. Sorry, but we were supposed to get some heat, and we want to get paid for it. Bad sex in real life makes us want more.

You know, there are also some really tasty books out there. They have great world-building, characters you’ll fall for, a strong plot line and a lot of steamy scenes. The whole package, if you get my drift. We want it done well. In that case, we have put together a list of the books that make us feel like we’re having sex with someone else.

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

She wants to be intimate with an escort she hires, Michael, so the sexy parts of The Kiss Quotient take a long time to start. She has Asperger’s, and that makes it hard for her to be intimate. But when they have sex for the first time, Hoang does something amazing with the writing. It’s very clever. Michael says that he should get behind her. The way Michael suggested something that felt dirty but was also safe and right for Stella, as well as the fact that this was the ideal sexual position for Stella, was a brilliant writing move! This is how it should have been written. There is one thing that, oh baby, makes me go “wow.” Sex that is both good for the characters and also helps the story move forward more quickly is what makes me go “wow.” In the book, there’s not even a lot of steamy sex, but this is the scene that stuck with me as being hot and well-written.

The Boss by Abigail Barnette (aka Jenny Trout)

When BDSM is shown in a positive, empowering and loving way, it’s very tasty and gross.

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin

Sex scenes between a god of darkness and a person who is not a god are so hot! It doesn’t matter that she could die. Yeine says, “It’s worth it for that d***.” We both agree. He could get it at any time.

Lost Boi by Sassafras Lowrey

It looks like September was a slow month for me because I only read one new book. It turned out that I was starting that one book, Lost Boi, over from the beginning every time I finished it. I read Lost Boi in full three times, and I still go back to a few favorite parts. It’s a super queer, super magical, super kinky retelling of Peter Pan in which Pan’s Lost Bois and Hook’s pirates are two leather families that are at odds. When Pan decides he wants a Mommy, Wendi, things go awry. Most of the people who speak in this book are trans/gender-nonconforming, and there are a lot of them. a lot of sex. Online bookstores are the best place to go if this is what you’re interested in.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

For plot and spoilers, you’ll have to read A Court of Thorns and Roses first. When you type “A Court of Mist and Fury” into Google, “chapter 55” comes up. There’s a reason for this. In A Court of Thorns and Roses there are 46 chapters, and in A Court of Mist and Fury, there are 54 chapters that lead up to Chapter 55. It’s worth reading them both for the bow-chicka-wow-wow that happens in Chapter 55. It doesn’t end there. Later, there is a scene with paint. Paint. The best thing to do is just keep reading.

Taking the Lead by Cecilia Tan

Sexy is subjective, so this could change my mind from day to day, but Taking The Lead is definitely at the top of my list of sexy sexy writing. Taking The Lead Celia Tan is an expert at writing about sexual things, and the mix of fire and feelings makes every scene better than the last. Because of the way they’re linked in this book, there’s a lot that makes the sexual parts even more interesting and sexy.

Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat

In the end, I’m not ashamed to say that this book was on my list because I heard it was steamy. In fact, it’s so much more than that. During Captive Prince and its follow-ups, the characters grow so much as they go through trauma and hardship. You become so attached to them that you care so much about them. It’s heartfelt and adventurous, with a lot of Laurent’s witty jokes thrown in for good measure. Oh, yeah, and it gets dirty. In this case, there are no complaints here.
