I’m the last person to judge someone’s choices in reading material.

Hello? I started the Smut Book Club by reading smutty smut on my Kindle of Ill Repute. Of course I can’t judge anyone else’s choice in what they read.

You want to read Nora Roberts until your eyes bleed? Do it! Do you think Fifty Shades of Grey is the second coming? Good on you! Love to read Chaucer and Gaiman and Fitzgerald like they’re the only authors who ever lived? You win at your life!

Bring on the smut!

Texas Sirens Series by Sophie Oak
4/5 Stars; XXX-Rated

Speaking of BDSM, this series is full of lusty, naughty rich cowboy sex. I’ve read 5 out of the 6 books, and I admit that they all kind of have the same story. Man meet girl; girl likes man; man takes girl as sub; man takes man as sub; Man + Woman + Man live happily ever after. Trust me, I’m not giving anything away that any seasoned smut reader won’t already know, but these are totally worth reading if you like it dirty.

Small Town Siren
Siren in the City [Texas Siren 2]
Siren Enslaved [Texas Sirens 3]
Siren Beloved [Texas Sirens 4]
Siren in Waiting [Texas Sirens 5]

Let Me Be The One by Bella Andre
4/5 Stars; X-Rated

I’ve professed my love for the Sullivans in previous Kindle of Ill Repute posts, but now that Ms. Andre has released Ryan’s story, my love has overtaken my every emotion. You must read these books. Must. Some people have told me that the covers have deterred them from reading the books, but seriously people? Don’t judge a book by its cover. ESPECIALLY not the Sullivans. Not every smut book needs a naked lady or a single grey tie. Ms. Andre told me on Twitter that this book is her favorite out of all of them so far (this is the 6th), and I can 100% see why. It’s sweet, not really predictable, and it keeps you on your toes. LOVED it.

Let Me Be The One: The Sullivans, Book 6
The Look of Love: The Sullivans, Book 1
From This Moment On: The Sullivans, Book 2
Can’t Help Falling In Love: The Sullivans, Book 3
I Only Have Eyes For You: The Sullivans, Book 4
If You Were Mine: The Sullivans, Book 5

Wrong Bed, Right Guy by Katee Robert
4/5 Stars; NC-17 Rated

This book has been making the rounds around the romance circuit as one of the Next Big Things, and while I don’t think it’s the end all, be all of the best, it has its attraction. It’s short, romantic, quirky, and a good read for someone who likes a little smuttiness but nothing that goes TOO far. I did mention it’s short, so the $2.99 price tag on Amazon is perfect for this book.

Here’s what I had to say about Wrong Bed, Right Guy on Goodreads:

Cute, endearing, and a fun, easy read. Nothing is really shocking about this book, so it’s a perfect in-betweener for when you want to read something simple. Sex scenes go just far enough and long enough, and I liked the guy more than the girl.

Wrong Bed, Right Guy

Rough Riders #2, #12 & #13 by Lorelei James
5/5 stars; XX-Rated

I finished out the remaining Rough Riders books I needed to complete of the published books. There are a few left that Lorelei James will release, and I can’t WAIT to get my dirty hands on the last ones. Though I’ll miss the McKays and their family, if the last two she’s released of the series are any indication, the ones yet to come out will be spectacular.

Rode Hard, Put Up Wet (Rough Riders #2)
Cowboy Casanova (Rough Riders #12)
Kissin’ Tell (Rough Riders #13)

UPDATE (9/25): I was wrong. See here for how and why.

UPDATE (9/19): A good friend of mine virtually sat me down and whipped me into shape. I opened my mouth (below) with my opinions without actually looking into what I said and how people would react. My intention is not to “kink-shame” anyone or make someone feel bad for my opinions. I’m finding that I am uneducated in what I said below. I’ve learned that terms like “non-con” in fanfiction are potential trigger warnings, and that reading non-con can be used as a healing process for many people. If you want more information on non-con and other terms, check out Kink Wiki:

Although consent comes up in many (if not all) categories of kink, this is the category for folks who want to specifically play with noncon, dubcon, or rape, with various forms of consensual roleplay or fantasies about consent (like the consensual acting out of a rape fantasy, kidnapping fantasy, or blackmail fantasy, to name a few), with kink community concepts like metaconsent or consensual non-consent, with kink-only consent play (like whipping with safewords), with solo-consent play (self bondage, ice locks), or with enthusiastic consent as a form of dirty talk.

But there is a point at which I start to question the sanity of people who read books that feature violence as titillating. To be honest, I never thought about the fact that there are authors and readers who actually like reading things like non-con and kidnapping and underage sex. To me, it’s disturbing.

Getting off on reading about non-con (or, as I found out, non-consensual sex, or rape) is abhorrent. A book that glorifies kidnapping is irresponsible. Reading in detail about young children having sex (either with or without a fellow underage partner) is borderline psychotic.

I admit that I read books about, or the exaggeration of, the BDSM lifestyle, but in each case I’ve read, it’s 100% consensual between the people involved. There is a dance between the Dominant and submissives that is erotic, if not strange to most people. But no matter how “dirty” or “non-conformist” you may think a life lived this way can be, there is no one in the books that I read who has their own self taken from them.

The fact that things like non-con and underage sex exist in and outside of fanfic makes my stomach churn, so hopefully these books will get our minds off of some of that disgusting stuff.

What are you reading? Is it smutty? Not-so-smutty? Downright juvenile?

Share it with Smut Book Club on GoodreadsOn FacebookOn Twitter!

Just please don’t tell me you’re reading that nasty non-con and underage stuff. We could no longer be friends.

I’ve been reading The Game of Thrones books all summer interspersed with Summer of Smut books to cut the seriousness. But I just finished a sweet little family fantasy book called Blue by Louis Aronica.

I can’t read the GoT books – way too many weird names to keep up with. I can barely keep up with the show.

Thank you!

I’ve just seen a few rec’s for some books that I absolutely canNOT imagine being okay with. Yes I get it, they’re fiction, but still, it doesn’t make it ok. I have to admit there is one book (not non-con) that I keep hearing rave reviews about, but I just can’t bring myself to read, based on the blurb and how I interpret it.

On to happier – putting the Kobo down, going back to my iPad for a little while to catch up on the books rec’d to me that are only avail on Amazon…thank goodness for my Kindle app :o)

So I have a point of reference, how many X’s would you give 50 Shades? I know your numeric rating, but you weren’t doing the X’s back then.

I’d say 50 Shades is XXX. Right?

Probably, but seeing as how I haven’t read any of the rest of these (YET!), I wanted to know what I was getting myself into. I’d be surprised if I liked the “tamer” stuff (I’m a 50 Shades believer!), but I will try for you!

I have read some excellent stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting.
I wonder how a lot effort you put to make this type of excellent informative web site.
