Bared to You by Sylivia Day (Goodreads top 10)
Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness…
He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…
Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private worlds…and desires.
The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn’t tear us apart…
LETTING GO: The Surrender Trilogy by Maya Banks (Barnes and Noble top 10)
Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she’ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn’t give her: dominance. Lonely, searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she’s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what she’d find would be the one man who’s long been a source of comfort—and secret longing. Her husband’s best friend.
Dash has lived in an untenable position for years: in love with his best friend’s wife but unwilling to act on that attraction. He’d never betray his best friend. And so he’s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.
When he finds her in a club devoted to the darker edges of desire, he’s furious because he thinks she has no idea what she’s getting herself into. Until she explains in detail what it is she wants. What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world. He is the only man who will touch her, cherish her…love her. And the only man she’ll ever submit to.
If you’re looking for something with fewer pages and more sex you should check these out. They’re about 30 pages a piece and are definitely worth the short time it takes to devour them.
Here, presented in one volume, are the four stories that comprise ‘The Proposal’ series by Lucia Jordan.
When Brooke Miller, a successful financial advisor, went to attend her younger sister’s wedding, she was glad for the brief reprieve from her hectic job. The groom’s brother, tall and raven-haired Christopher Hunt, destroyed her plans for a peaceful break. There was something almost menacing about him and despite her reservations, he enthralled Brooke. What she would soon learn is that Chris wants her to be his Sub – and he is very persuasive.
After Chris took his kinky interests too far, Brooke’s anger at herself keeps her on edge. She can’t admit that she liked being spanked, and her denial is just amusing the man who was responsible. He knows that somewhere deep inside, Brooke is leaning toward him – toward being his Sub.
Brooke explores her carnal urges and is a willing student to her master. She is completely satisfied until the romance and affection in her sister’s marriage affects how she views her own relationship. She is obsessed by the need to have a more fulfilling liaison with the one man who attracts her like no one else. But a heart-to-heart with Chris leaves her abandoned, because Chris is by nature a Dom who avoids romance like the plague. He attempts to dislodge himself from Brooke, only to be left the one wanting.
Brooke attempts to rectify her drastic mistake, but she has no solid explanation. She is terrified that Chris will release her, and hastily comes up with the perfect solution: she changes her mind. Now, she craves no romance whatsoever – all she wants is to be his submissive.
Chris is feeling the pressure, and the insistent urging of his heart to overrule his level-headed actions. He had enjoyed the altered relationship – the intimacy – but the shock of his life awaits him. Brooke has turned the tables and is now an over-avid, suspiciously keen sub.
I can’t leave out these two though.
Kassidy is a good girl who wants to be bad. Dag is a bad boy who is very, very good. And Chris? He likes to watch…

As old feelings resurface, and new attractions are explored, a storm of sexual sparks is unleashed that leads them into forbidden areas.
Always the good girl, Kassidy blossoms under the attentions of two loving men, but neither she nor Chris are expecting the ménage to take a quarter turn toward Dag…and his feelings for Chris. When it’s revealed that Dag’s attraction to Chris is one big reason he left town, a tangled mess of old hurts and new feelings might destroy friendship. Love. Might destroy everything.
Warning: This book contains a couple already in love, a couple falling in love and a couple in love who didn’t know it; also multiple scorching sex scenes including girl with boy, girl with two boys, boy with boy and two boys with girl…whew!
