Fall is here and the temperatures are dropping. Grab your coziest blanket, sweater, and socks, pour yourself a cup of delightfully warm tea, and snuggle on up with some steamy AF romance reads!
Remember: steam is totally subjective! I use a 1-5 scale and I have rated all of these 3 and above. Here’s a quick reference guide:
🔥 Fade to black/closed door. Could read with your grandma.
🔥🔥 One good romp.
🔥🔥🔥 More than one sex scene that will leave you fanning yourself.
🔥🔥🔥🔥 Several sex scenes. You might need a cold shower.
🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Sex throughout. Would make Chelsea Handler blush.
Hooking Up by Helena Hunting 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Dickbag groom is overheard by his bride and all their wedding guests hooking up with someone else at the wedding. Bride throws herself at the nearest eligible bachelor but he’s not interested in being her revenge screw. Embarrassed and jilted bride goes on honeymoon alone and the man who turned her down, just happens to be on the same island. The beach is hot but the sex is hotter. Can’t recommend this one enough!
The Driven Series by K. Bromberg 🔥🔥🔥-🔥🔥🔥🔥
Bad boy professional race car driver with a troubled past meets social worker with a heart of gold, healing from a recent heartbreak. Instant chemistry, tons of drama, lots swoon-worthy moments, and super spicy bedroom/closet/hood of car sex!
The This Man Series by Jodi Ellen Malpas 🔥🔥🔥-🔥🔥🔥🔥

The New Camelot series by Sierra Simone 🔥🔥🔥🔥-🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Camelot re-imagined in a contemporary, spicy AF M/M/F romance. President, Vice President and First Lady, y’all! It is hard to make me blush and I was not ready for this one because holy smokes! Keep a fan nearby.
American Love Story by Adriana Herrera 🔥🔥🔥
M/M romance between a college professor/social activist and an Assistant District Attorney. Open lines of communication, super poignant and really relevant, and omg some of the best dirty talk in the game!
Any Duchess Will Do by Tessa Dare 🔥🔥🔥
Tessa gives us her usual hilarious and witty banter, but throws in some slightly steamier scenes in this one. Lots of chemistry, bit of a slow burn, but the payoff is totally worth it!
Xeni by Rebekah Weatherspoon 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Confident and badass heroine inherits her late aunt’s fortune on the contingency that she marries a big and burly, bagpipe playing bisexual hero. The steam is off the charts and the romance is just really lovely.
The Ice Planet Barbarians series by Ruby Dixon 🔥🔥🔥-🔥🔥🔥🔥
An alien romance series that is as strange as it is entertaining. Lots of LOL moments, dark at times, but mostly light-hearted and fun. You’ll be surprised by not only how steamy these books are, but also how much you’ll enjoy them.
