companioncontractI read a crap ton of kinky romances, so it probably isn’t surprising that there are fifteen on my list of favorites of 2015. And, of course, there are several other kinky books that aren’t here but on my New to Me Authors of 2015 post. I recommend all of these books!

 

Intimate Geography & Craving Flight by Tamsen Parker: Intimate Geography is an excellent erotic, BDSM romance with a beta Dom - not something you see in most BDSM romances. See my full review. And honestly, Craving Flight might actually be a better book. This kinky novella features an Orthodox Jewish butcher and a recently divorced woman who is desperate to find her place in the Orthodox community. There is indeed hot kink in this story, but the conflict is more about religion and the heroine’s emotional journey. This is an amazing erotic novella that is free - and a MUST READ!

 

 

Driven by Fate by Tessa Bailey: In my review of this, I wrote: “It has a wonderful romance, a strong heroine, a dirty Dom and many highly dirty moments. Do not miss this book. I highly recommend it.”

 

Guilty Pleasure by Jane O’Reilly: In this book, the hero and heroine share a love of exhibitionism, and they do indeed push the envelope. This is a super dirty book with a great romance. See my mini-review.

 

Playing Knotty by Elia Winters: This is one of the books that I read in 2015 that I never got around to reviewing which still makes me feel bad because it is one of my favorite books of the year. One of the best parts about this book is the fact that the hero is into rope bondage but not necessarily dominance and submission. He likes to tie up his partners (or be tied up) without actually needing to be in control (although he can do so when the situation warrants it). The hero and heroine have been friends for years, but the hero wasn’t sure she would be into his kink - until she agrees to be his rope model for a demo. I could not put this romance down and highly recommend it.

 

Taken by Charlotte Stein: From my review of this one: “Taken is a sexy, dirty and intense capture fantasy romance that is not to be missed. Rosie and Johann are realistic and emotional characters -  flawed, yet perfect for each other. Charlotte Stein has a unique writing style that always seems to make me bleed and then come back for more. I highly recommend Taken and also the previous books in the Under the Skin series: Intrusion and Forbidden.

 

One Cut Deeper by Joely Sue Burkhart: From my mini review: “One Cut Deeper kept me guessing from start to finish. The kink aspects are not for the faint of heart, but fit the relationship between these two characters - and they are integral to suspense plot as well. This is an erotic thriller that should not be missed. It is a fantastic story with just the right blend of kink and suspense.

 

Kneel, Mr. President by Lauren Gallagher: In my review, I wrote: “Undoubtedly, Kneel, Mr. President is one of my favorite m/m/f menages - and one of my favorite kinky books. The sex scenes are on fire, but fit so well into the development of a three-way relationship. I cannot say enough about this story. Fans of menage and kink should not miss Lauren Gallagher - and Kneel, Mr. President is a fabulous place to start. Go read this book now!”

 

Finding Master Right by Sparrow Beckett: This is the first book in Sparrow Beckett’s Masters Unleashed series. The heroine is looking for a Dominant for some sexy play, but she ends up with a hero who is looking for a slave. The chemistry between the two is explosive, and they both have to learn to compromise especially once he offers to train her. This one is full of hot, kinky fun and has an emotionally charged romance.

 

Crosstown Crush by Cara McKenna: From my review: “Despite the ending, Crosstown Crush is a powerful erotic romance with plenty of hot and dirty moments. The sex is visceral and in your face at times, but integral to the romantic plot. I can only wonder at where McKenna will go next in this series, but I expect it to be epic.” This one is a fascinating book and gets the award for the story that made me think most in 2015. I have been pondering this one, its kink and its somewhat unsatisfying ending for months. Kudos to McKenna for tackling a tough topic and making it relatable.

 

The Queen by Tiffany Reisz: The Queen is the dramatic ending to a powerful and much-loved 8-book series. My summation of this one: “It was so hard for me to read The Queen because it meant that the series was finally over. Yes, I can re-read the books (I have and will continue to do so), but I can’t ever experience them for the first time. But read it, I did - and I was delighted with the result. Nora’s rise as a dominatrix was quite necessary to her character, as Kingsley rightly knew. As usual, parts of the book were painful to read (a staple of Reisz’s storytelling), but I have never enjoyed the pain more because the ending made it all worthwhile. ”

 

Dangerously Broken by Eden Bradley: I will pretty much read any book written by Eden Bradley, any book which features a Dom hero or any book in which the heroine is in love with her older brother’s best friend - and this one has ALL THREE. The romance is delicious, the kink is hot and the book is fantastic. This one is part of the Dangerous series but can be read as a stand alone. However, the entire series is worth reading.

 

Taking the Lead by Cecilia Tan: This one isn’t out until January 26, 2016, but I read it in 2015 - and could not put it down. The hero is a Dominant and a rock star who becomes enamored of a rich, Hollywood heiress - who happens runs a BDSM dungeon in the family mansion (the premise is unusual but works). Tan knows her kink which makes for a very dirty read.

 

The Companion Contract by Solace Ames: From my review:Solace Ames is a wonderful writer, one who tells unconventional and yet complex romance stories with diverse characters. I love her books and highly recommend all of them. They are stand alones, so one can start with The Companion Contract (but do consider the others). If you are interested in a different type of story, this one will fit the bill. Give it a chance. It may take you outside of your comfort zone, but it is well worth it.

 

Giving It Up by Audra North: I have not reviewed this one because it isn’t out until January 12, 2016, but I read it in 2015 and fell in love with it. This one features a newbie Domme just testing out her power with a SWAT hero who doesn’t make things easy. The story is hot, raw and I recommend it to fans of kinky books.
