Addicted to Love: Erotic Recommendations for August 2014

Beyond Addiction by Kit RochaIn need of some sexy reading material to fill your e-reader? I’m here for you. Each month I will bring you an assortment of erotic pleasure reads to tempt your palate—and your credit card....

August brings erotic addicions to a whole new level when these couples find the one they want to spend the rest of their lives with.

Beyond Addiction by Kit Rocha

She’s fought like hell to leave the past behind.

Trix changed her name and her life when she got clean four years ago. Now, she has a new family and a job she loves—tending bar and dancing at the Broken Circle. As an O’Kane, she’s happy, untouchable. Until a nightmare from her old life tears her away from her home and drags her back to Hell—also known as Sector Five.

He’s still living—and dying—in it.

Losing Trix was the kick in the head Finn needed to get sober, but working as an enforcer for a man he hates is slowly crushing his soul. The only thing that keeps him going is his determination to destroy Sector Five from the inside. Then Trix comes back into his life—alive, in danger—and nothing else matters.

Getting her home could be a suicide mission. The only thing deadlier is the old spark that flares to life between them. Soon, Finn and Trix are battling the one addiction neither of them ever managed to kick—each other. And it could cost them everything.

The Kit Rocha writing team goes to Defcon 10, and then some, in the fifth installment of their Beyond series. Pure erotic decadence is layered in sex, violence, and freedom as Rocha slowly reunites two former lovers whose addictions forced them apart. An action-packed storyline with an ongoing arc takes this erotic romance from common place to extraordinary in both writing and presentation.

Committed by Sidney BristolCommitted: Drug of Desire by Sidney Bristol

DEA Special Agent Damien Moana works hard and plays even harder. But while indulging in forbidden temptations at a private BDSM retreat, the unexpected happens: He falls under a stranger’s spell. This woman drives Damien to distraction, pushing him to the sweet boundary between pain and pleasure. When duty interrupts their heated encounter, his focus turns to catching a criminal . . . but his head is still with the seductress who ignites his deepest desires. Now Damien must choose between closing the case of his career and losing the woman of his dreams.

Poppy Mercer can’t forget the night she spent with her mystery lover. When chance brings them back together, she seizes the opportunity to again feel his masterful hands on her body. Poppy is a switch who delights in dominating a powerful man . . . and submitting to the ecstasy of his control. Outside the bedroom, however, she questions her place in Damien’s world. His obsession with hunting a ruthless drug lord puts Poppy in the line of fire. And though Damien might be able to save her from danger, salvaging what’s left of her trust is another matter.

What happens when an a sexy alpha pairs with a playful switch who loves to submit and dominate? A mixture of combustible chemistry that threatens to consume them both. Sidney Bristol does a fabulous job of blending a naughty BDSM-packed erotic romance with a suspenseful storyline as she brings two seemingly opposite people together in an explosion of lust, love, and danger.

Taking It All by Maya BanksTaking It All by Maya Banks

Chessy and Tate have been married for several years. In the beginning, their relationship was everything she wanted. Passionate. All consuming. She offered her submission freely and Tate cherished her gift with a tenderness that made her feel safe. Content. Wanted. And loved beyond all measure. But as the years have gone by, Tate has become more immersed in making his business the success it has become, and Chessy has taken a back seat to his business obligations. Growing unhappier with the status of their once blissful marriage, Chessy knows that something has to give. Or they stand to lose it all

Tate loves his wife. Has always loved her. Providing for her has always been his number one priority. But lately she’s seemed unhappy, and he’s worried. Worried enough that he arranges for a night together that he hopes will reignite the fire that once burned like an inferno between them.

But a business call at the wrong time threatens everything. Chessy’s safety, his concentration, his wife’s faith in him as her husband, a man sworn to love and protect her above all else. Gutted with the realization that he’s going to lose her—has already lost her—he readies for the fight of his life. Whatever it takes, he’ll get her back. And prove to her that nothing is more important than her love. And that if she’ll allow him to prove himself one more time, he’ll take it all. Everything. But he’ll give far more back. Himself. His undying love.

The final installment in Maya Banks’s Surrender trilogy is a sensual and heart-wrenching second-chance love story about a D/s marriage in trouble and the traumatic results that occur when one man lets the neglect of his wife go to far. Winning her trust back may be his toughest challenge ever. Warning: there is a scene in here that could be a trigger for victims of sexual assault.

One Night of Sin by Elle KennedyOne Night of Sin (An After Hours Novella) by Elle Kennedy

Sometimes it’s good to be bad…

When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.

Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.

As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skylar’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.

Elle Kennedy will once again steam up your e-reader with this hot and dirty little romance between a good girl who wants to be very, very bad with a reluctant ex-MMA fighter.

BAMF by SJD PetersonBAMF by SJD Peterson

With his fauxhawk, sleeve tattoos, and visible piercings, Ridley Corbin has the whole bad ass vibe going on in spades. The image serves him well as the self-proclaimed protector of the underdog, and he wants nothing more than to be Alex Firestone's hero.

Alex, a mild-mannered library assistant, has moved to Slater, a quiet college town, hoping to hide from his past. He keeps to himself, but that doesn't save him from catching the unwanted attention of the campus bully. But not all is as it seems. Alex's past comes calling, and it's time he becomes top dog.

This naughty and humorous M/M erotic by SJD Peterson beings the heat and more in a plethora of unbridled sex, dirty talk, and some kink exploration as two men vie for the spot of top dog.

I might have to pick up BAMF. I was complaining that there weren't any male librarian heroes.

Tori, I think I talked to you about Committed, and I still love it! I think it might be the best read of the month! I haven't read the Kit Rocha yet but it's sitting on my Kindle waiting for me, and Elle Kennedy can do no wrong in my eyes, so I look forward to reading more from this list! Thanks!
