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 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...
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
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 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.
