Erotica has always been a popular genre. But, until Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele came along. Hence, it wasn’t necessarily something that is famous. However, since Fifty Shades, the genre has expanded immensely. Which is good news. If the end of the recent film versions is about to leave a giant Fifty Shades-shaped hole in your heart.
Whether you’re looking for something as sexually charged as Fifty Shades. Also, something a little more on the traditionally romantic side, the below list of books should have you covered. (And while not all of these center around BDSM, some of them do touch on the topic).

The band offers Tru her dream job of traveling on tour with them. But, her boyfriend of two years makes the decision difficult. How long can she ignore her connection with rockstar Jake?

If the Fifty Shades books made you feel some type of way. Then this series is sure to have you turning pages.

10 Last Minute Snacks That Will Totally Wow Your Guests
When the impromptu party starts at your place, it is always a nice surprise. What’s not nice is that you have nothing to serve your guests. No matter what the number of guests is, you will want to serve the complete package. Which is why we have a list of 10 last minute snacks to get you ready to be the perfect hostess.
