Thirsty Thursdays #15: Top 3 things you have to have in erotic-esque books

"Thirsty Thursdays" is an original weekly feature where we highlight all that makes our mouth water in the world of books. Join us each week where we will pick either a quote, book cover, book boyfriend or kiss from our favorite books, that makes us all swoony. Please link back to us each week, we'd love for you to share what wets your whistle, as well!

Sorry for the lateness, the real world got in the way. But without further ado, 

  • Well obviously erotica.
  • A plot beyond sex.
  • Good pace.
Swoon quality: Sexy, yet engaging. 

Why: I'm all for smut, but I like a good plot to go along with it and if the book drags to melodramatic romance it's a major turn off for me. Give me some substance with my oh-la-la.

  • Strong male lead.
  • Neck kisses.
  • Sexual Tension/Build up.
Swoon Quality: All are sensual based.

Why: All of these combined make a great book for me. Once you have a strong and likable lead, other things fall into place. Like Keira, I'm all for smut but there should be some sexual tension, build up, before getting down to business.

Check out our Thirsty Thursdays tab for all our future Thursday topics!

Until Next Time!

  1. I definitely agree on the sexual tension and the need for there to be a plot other than sex. I think I like for their to be humor or at least a real feeling connection between the characters. They don't have to be madly in love but they at least have to like each other and be genuinely wanting to do what they're doing or we start getting into ick territory
