1-5. Crossfire Series
If you loved "50 Shades of Grey" you are going to fall in love with the Crossfire series. It's one of the most popular erotic genre series and many people rate it much higher than FSOG. If you are searching for books like 50 Shades of Grey you should start with this series. It's written by the Japanese-American writer Sylvia Day.
The Crossfire follow the love journey of Gideon and Eva. Eva Tramell is a young woman who is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. She has a hard time trying to forget the past, when she meets Gideon. Gideon Cross is a young, handsome billionaire (The dream man, right?), who happens to be also a childhood sexual abuse survivor. It's their journey of trying to establish a healthy, beautiful relationship.
Crossfire series is considered by many as one of the best series in the erotic romance genre.
6. Story of O
It's a classic story of a Parisian photographer who's in love with Rene. A love filled with psychological and sexual tests.
If you need a restart to your libido, that's the perfect book.
That book was my introduction into the world of erotic literature. I loved it and I think every fan of of "Fifty Shades" should read it.
Amazing book, brilliantly written, and heartbreaking at times. Some parts of the story may be shocking to some people, but at the end it's gonna blow your mind.
7-8. Beautiful Series
"Beautiful" by Jamie McGuire is a book series about Abby Abernathy and Travis Maddox. Abby is a good nerdy girl, and Travis is a covered with tattoos boy, spending his nights winning money in a fight ring.
Travis tricks Abby into his his full of troubles daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month, if she loses, she must live with Travis for the same amount of time.
In the first book you see the story through Abby's eyes, in the second through Travis'.
9-11. Gabriel's Inferno Trilogy
I just finished reading the last one of the series "Gabriel's Inferno" by Sylvain Reynard. I absolutely loved it.
Gabriel Emerson is a handsome and attractive professor, a Dante specialist, tortured by his past.
When Julia Mitchell joins his seminar, they feel strong connection. A story of love, sins, redemption and sex.
The series was simply brilliant and amazing. After I finished the third book I still can't let Gabriel and Julia go. It's gonna take me a while to start reading a new book.
12-14. Phèdre's Trilogy
"Phèdre's Trilogy" written by Jacqueline Carey, isn't that well known but it's absolutely great. I just randomly picked the first book off the shelf of my local library and I was surprised how great it was. It's an epic fantasy about a land called Terre d'Ange, a place of beauty and grace, inhabited by mixed race of angels and men.
I wish I could get every "50 Shades Of Grey" fan to read these books. You are going to love it even more than FSG. Beautifully written and all the hot scenes are well put in the story. The scenes are kinkier and the female character is much stronger.
It's a dark, twisted and unique story. This is definitely not for everyone. It is a book that will keep you suspenseful the whole time.
16-21. On Dublin Street Series
I've only read the first book of "On Dublin Street" by Samantha Young, so far, but I'm planning to start reading the second one next week. I really loved the first book. It's about the American girl Jocelyn Butler, who moves to Edinburgh for a fresh start. She meets Braden Carmichael, a man who always gets what he wants, and this time he wants Jocelyn in his bed.
It has everything, romance, love, erotic, drama and humor. Personally I think "On Dublin Street" is better than "50 Shades Of Grey". Check by yourself.
"Thoughtless" by S.C. Stephens is series about Kiera, a woman who has found her soulmate, the love of her life, everything she ever wanted. Everything is perfect until they move to a new city to start their life together. Unforeseen obligation forces the couple apart.
Lonely and confused, Kiera meets Kellan Kyle - a local rock star. At the beginning they are just friends, but one night everything changes. They will never be the same.
Passionate and addicting series.
"Up In The Air" is a story about the flight attendant Bianca and how her life changes after she meets the billionaire hotel owner James. From the first time she sees him, she knows she's attracted to him.
It seems like the typical crush-on-billionaire erotica but it's really much more.
There's a lot of kinky, dominant, BDSM sex in this series, but the character development and the great plot is the best part.
"Up In The Air" is one of the most underrated series of the genre. It's hot, it's deep, it's witty and brilliantly written. It has a special place on my bookshelf. It's a must-have if you are a fan of the genre.
"Inside Out" by Lisa Renee Jones is very unique series. The story is about Sara McMillan who finds erotic journal entries written by mysterious woman. Unable to stop reading, she starts living with these dark fantasies until the shocking end of the journal.
The plot of the series is my favorite. Not only that the story is well written and unique, but Lisa Renee Jones managed to keep it sexy. I've read somewhere, a review by someone saying that "Inside Out" is like "Fifty Shades" combined with "Basic Instinct".
35-37. The Dark Duet Trilogy
If you want more books like Fifty Shades of Grey you just can't skip "The Dark Duet Trilogy". Okay, "The Dark Duet" is a bit different from all the series I listed above. It is more dark, even scary.
It's about the 18 year old Olivia, who has just woken up in a unknown place. She's blindfolded and bound.
She's kidnapped by Caleb, a man who was kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery. Now he's seeking a revenge by kidnapping young women and train them to be all that he once was. BDSM, erotica, romance? I can't really say the exact genre of the trilogy. It is darker than "Fifty Shades" and if you really like it that way, you are going to fall in love with these books.
A series that was recommended to me by many people while I was searching for books like 50 Shades of Grey. A friend told me that "This Man" is like Fifty Shades...on crack... Kinkier and more weird. Fair enough, I like weird stuff, so, that was the first series that I started reading after I finished Fifty Shades Of Grey.
Ava is 26yo interior designer, who is sent by her boss for a job at "The Mansion". She believes that "The Mansion" is a hotel, but it's quite obvious what's going on in there. She meets the owner, Jesse Ward, and there's an instant connection between two of them.
I loved the books, although I still don't know how to feel about Jesse... Is he a lunatic? Is he sweet? Or does he has a mental illness...
This is probably the most exciting romance series at the moment. Dollar by Pepper Winters is another one of her dark series. Most of you may know her from Monsters in The Dark. Dollar is so dark that it will blow your mind. Not a read for everyone.
It had a great impact on me. At the time, when I read it, I was feeling a bit depressed and reading that fantastic story definitely helped me fixing my bad mood. I remember staying up late because I just couldn't put the book down.
Cocktail Series by Alice Clayton is brilliant for the lovers of Fifty Shades of Grey. Alice always has the perfect mix of sexy and funny in her books.
It's a story about Caroline, a girls who just moved to a new apartment in San Francisco. Her walls are so thin that she can hear her neighbor "having fun" with different women every night. Caroline is single, so, you know... she starts to fantasize.
The books are sexy, hot, funny and cute. I loved it!
