The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory
Look, let’s be honest: Many people are not reading erotica romance books for the storyline. However, in The Wedding Date, this erotic novel is just as enthralling because it’s filled with hot sex. The narrative is (not so shockingly) about a couple who go on a blind wedding after a chance meeting and surprise, surprise that they wind up making out, making love, and falling head over heels.
Best quote: “A question was in his eyes, and a smile hovered over his lips. His thumb drew slow circles on her hip and then moved up her side to her ribs. His other hand moved up to her face and traced the outline of her lips with his fingers. She shivered. He waited.”
Dark Lover by J.R. Ward
To start with, the cover is wonderful. Second of all, it is about hot vampires who lust following far greater than the bloodstream (hint: every other).
