If You Liked Fifty Shades of Grey

Book publishers are like Hollywood producers.  When they figure out what people like, they give them more of it.  That's why Fast & Furious 6  is opening this weekend (can't wait to see it) and that's why publishers are scrambling to release the next Fifty Shades of Grey.  Month after month, titles with similar themes are released in hopes that readers will respond with the same interest and enthusiasm.  If you are one of the many people who enjoyed the series by E.L. James, you may also enjoy the following titles and other books by these authors.  The title descriptions are from the publisher.

Bared to YouBared to You  by Sylvia Day  (Crossfire Series #1)

Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness-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 wounds... and desires.  The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn't tear us apart...

 His to Command  by Opal Carew
His to Command
Kate is a modern businesswoman who knows exactly how to run her well-organized world. But underneath her professional exterior lurks a secret that she's been running from for years--a fierce desire to be dominated that both exhilarates and terrifies her. And there's only one man who's ever tempted her to lose control.  Powerful executive Matthew Pearce gave Kate her first taste of what it means to surrender completely at the hands of a dominant man, and she's never been able to forget. Though she's spent years trying to outrun her feelings for him, a chance encounter changes everything . . . and this time she might not be able to escape.

If I Were You If I Were You  by Lisa Renee Jones  (Inside Out Trilogy #1)

The journal comes to Sara McMillan by chance, when she inherits the key to an abandoned storage locker belonging to a woman named Rebecca. Sara can't resist peeking at the entries in the journal . . . and she finds a scintillating account of Rebecca's affair with an unnamed lover, a relationship drenched in ecstasy and wrapped in dark secrets. Obsessed with discovering Rebecca's destiny after the entries come to an abrupt end, Sara does more than observe the players in the woman's life; she immerses herself in the high-stakes art gallery world Rebecca inhabited--and is magnetically drawn to two men.  On a daringly erotic escapade, Sara follows Rebecca's path to fulfill her own hidden longings.
