August Wrap Up: Our Favorite Smut and Other Musings

Here we are, at the end of another month in the year that is both speeding by and lasting forever. Pretty much the only thing helping us keep it together right now is smut, so without further ado, here were our favorites this month:

Holly’s Choice: Paradise Cove by Jenny Holiday

This book is so, so good. She is recommending it to everyone.

Erin’s Choice: Break the Rules by Roxie Noir

This book made Erin cheer. It might make you cheer too.

Ingrid’s Choice: Refuge by Willa J. Brand

This book was tightly written and had great suspense. Read when you’re in the mood for a page-turner.


Other things we got up to this month:


Some books to look forward to next month:

Look. At. All. That. Delicious. SMUT!

July Wrap Up: Our Favorite Smut This Month

Happy Friday! If you’re looking for something to read this weekend (summer staycation, anyone?) here are our favorites this month.

Erin’s Choice: Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall

Erin is STILL gushing about this book. Someone else please read it so she stops texting Holly and Ingrid all the time to talk about it.

Ingrid’s Choice: A Good Man by Rosanna Leo

The TL;DR version of Ingrid’s review of this book: she loved it and can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Holly’s Choice: Hate Crush by Angelina M. Lopez

This book is sexy, emotional, and suspenseful, and might have convinced Holly to care about wine making.

Honorable Mentions: The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows by Olivia Waite and Daring and the Duke by Sarah MacLean and Letters and Lies by Colleen L. Donnolly and actually we read a lot of really excellent books this month and it was really difficult for us to each pick one.

June Wrap Up – All Our Favorite Smut This Month

As we finish June and go hurtling towards July, a reminder: that while reading may seem like a small act, what we read matters. Black Lives Matter. Queer Lives Matter. And we will continue to highlight Black romance and Queer romance even when there aren’t protests or when it’s not Pride month.

But for now, our favorite reads this month:

Erin’s Choice: Just Like That by Cole McCade

“Cole McCade can rip my guts out and give me a massive book hangover anytime.”

Ingrid’s Choice: Finding Joy by Adriana Herrera

Ingrid wants to hold the world still for a few days, so she can just sit with this book and enjoy it longer.

Holly’s Choice: Wanted, A Gentleman by K.J. Charles

When Holly finished reading, she held this book close to her heart and sighed.


And here are some of the (many) (too many?) (no such thing!) books we’ll be talking about in July:

May Wrap Up: Our Favorite Smut This Month

It feels like we’ve published a million reviews this month. What can we say? Erin is reading about five times as much as normal – welcome to quarantine life. If you’re like Holly and Ingrid and are not reading five times as much as normal (and maybe a little less than normal), we feel you. Either way, we’re happy to make recommendations.

Without further ado: our favorite books for the month.

Ingrid’s Choice: Salt + Stilettos by Janet Walden-West

Ingrid especially loved the hero, Will, who wasn’t a perfect specimen of manhood, but was sweet and gentle and shy and cooked the sexiest food.

Holly’s Choice: Recipe for Persuasion by Sonali Dev

This book has some serious angst, but it builds to something really amazing. Bonus points for an extremely sexy hero.

Erin’s Choice: Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin van Whye

Erin almost died of all the cuteness.


Hope all of our loyal readers are safe, healthy, and are able to set aside time to keep reading smut.

April Wrap Up

We can’t believe it’s the end of April already, otherwise known as Month 2 of New Life. It felt like April went by super fast, in the slowest way possible. Us, every day: Ugh, there are still 5 more hours until dinnertime. Us, every week: What? Friday already?

On the whole, we have all been very lucky. We are all healthy, and so are our families. We all have homes we can safely shelter in, and enough food to eat, and access to the internet. On the other hand, we also all have children under the age of five, so smut is the only thing keeping us sane right now.

Without further ado, here were our top reads in April:
