7 Modern Books About Hot Romance

The beauty of modern books is that they speak directly to the desires of modern people.

So, while some old books are hot and spicy, dating was different decades ago. And that’s relevant because erotic stories written by modern authors for modern people are much more specific and hot than anything written in the past.


Reasons for that are numerous, but freedom of speech and simpler publishing processes helped the erotic niche to develop. And it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.

It’s one of the most popular book genders among modern, open-minded women. Looking at dating profiles of girls looking for sex reveals that most of them list reading as a hobby.

However, have you ever met somebody who reveals on the first date that reading erotica is their favorite spare time activity?

But let's be honest: once two horny people who like each other meet in person… Things similar to those in the books we’ll list below happen. And as long as both are happy with it and nobody else gets hurt, there is nothing disreputable or reprehensible about it. And the same applies with reading sexy Literature!

So let's directly into this genre of Erotic Literature. We'll show you the 7 best Modern Books about Hot Romance.  And don’t worry, we won’t spoil any spicy parts.
