One of my favorite ways to get into the mood is by listening to a sexy audiobook throughout the day as I do chores, take a walk, or drive to work (and sometimes surprise my husband with a wild night).
As moms, sometimes we’re so exhausted by the time everything is done—even when we have a day off—that it can be hard to find time to find our own pleasure (kinky or otherwise). But I’ve noticed that when “listen to a steamy audiobook” is added into my routine, I never forget to schedule time for self love or a romantic night with my husband.
When I was in college, I used to think that reading a wide array of classics was more important than reading the books I actually enjoyed—like romance novels. I used to hide my romance books, with their covers featuring rugged and heavily muscled men (who were shirtless 99.9 percent of the time), from my boyfriend to avoid his teasing. But after a few years passed and motherhood got the best of me, I was often too tired to pick up a book, be it a classic or a romance.
At a mom friend’s suggestion, I started to get into audiobooks. They were awesome to listen to when I was short on time, and they also took my erotic books to the next level by using sexy voice actors who helped me picture every vivid detail the author wrote.
So without further delay, here are nine of my favorite sexy books to listen to.
Christine Feehan is by far my favorite romance author, but she took this book to another level. What I love about this series is that there's an action-packed plot that supports the arc of the story for those of us who want a little more than just sex. I'm a feminist, but when it comes to sexy books, men like Reaper just do great things that I know I would hate in real life. But hey, that’s part of the fun of fiction, right?
(Trigger warning for childhood abuse and trauma that is discussed in the male lead’s past.)
After reading Strong Hold, I binged all of Sarah Castille’s books that I could get my hands on. The chemistry of the characters made me laugh, cry, and obsess over the love scenes. If you're more into romance than just “wham, bam, thank you ma’m,” this is a good series to get steam and true love in your romance book.
This book is not for the faint of heart, but if you're into morally questionable romances, older men, and BDSM, well, look no further. The Red starts off with the main character Mona Lisa selling the failing art gallery she inherited from her mom, but just as she's about to close for the final time, a gentleman makes her an offer: He'll rescue the gallery if she agrees to let him be her dominant for the year.
Author Penelope Douglas has recently become one of my favorites, and I love this series. Kill Switch is number three in her Devil's Night Series and is my favorite so far with its twists and turns and a very hot romance.
If you want to start from the beginning, listen to Corrupt first.
