My First Smut is a recurring feature where we talk about our formative smut experiences. These short confessionals may include such details as: What book did you read? How old were you? Were there other people involved? What made the experience special? What role does smut play in your life?
This week, romance author Carla R. states what we all know is true: that reading romance can help you spice up your love life.
First romance novel you read:
Naked (Blackstone Affair) by Raine Miller
How old were you?
Late 30ish. I was a new mom just looking for something new to read.
How’d you get your hands on the book?
Searching for Ebooks on Amazon, and it jumped out at me.
What was the reading experience like?
I loved it, I couldn’t put it down and I immediately downloaded the next one.
What made the experience special?
I had read books with romance in them, but never books with descriptive sex scenes. It was fun and naughty and I wanted more.
What role does smut play in your life?
It’s an escape from everyday life. But it also gives me inspiration for my own love life sometimes.
Carla R. is a married, mom of two that loves to read a good love story. She got it in her head one day that she could write one too, and so she did. She loves to write about strong independent women and the sexy men that love them. When she’s not writing, she’s usually spending time with her hubby, kids and pets or binge watching The Office …again. She’s a stay at home mom with a caffeine addiction, a part-time hairstylist, and a full-time smart ass.
Thanks, Carla, for sharing! We are right there with you on sexy smut being super fun to read. We look forward to reading Carla’s recent release Badass in the near future – watch this space for a review coming soon!
