Are you still looking for Fifty Shades-type reads?

Hi everybody!

This is kind of a poll question, I guess, because I'm wondering where you all are with the Fifty Shades boom. I saw today that Maya Banks - who is a terrific writer and has been writing these kinds of stories before E.L. James made erotica mainstream - sold three erotica books about a trio of billionaires who find love.

 

So are you guys still looking for books like this? Or do you consider the E.L. James books a one-time, amazing reading experience that doesn't put you in the mind to seek out similar books?

Which three books are these? I didn't finish the Shades series so I don't know exactly where it ended up.  I know the a couple of books in the Sweet Sereies have some D/s in them.

These are brand new books that start coming out in February. I don't know even know if there are final titles yet!

 

I just wondered if readers were wanting more of these types of stories of if Fifty Shades satisified your need for them.

I've read mostof her contemporaryworld so I'll probably look those when theirreleased.  A couple of books in her Sweet series have elements of D/s.

I think the new Banks' books are called something like Fever, Rush, and Burn maybe? But I LOVE, the erotica spin on her stories. Her Colter series is awesome. Pretty much everything she writes is amazing, and re-readable! The Sweet series, is addicting!

I found Sylvia Day's Crossfire series is very much like Shades. Eva works as an assistant in an ad agency and Gideon Cross owns just about everything! I actually prefer them to Shades; Gideon Cross is definitely just as droolworthy as Christian Grey. After reading the first one, I just feel like Crossfire could be more of an equal relationship---though there is some dom/sub material there too.

 

Happy reading!
