When 50 Shades of Grey came out, my husband encouraged me to buy it. He heard ‘good things’ about it, and said I should pick it up.
It didn’t quite have the effect he hoped for, but it made me think about reading. There are those books that keep you up all night because you’re worried that your significant other is really plotting your murder and if you go to sleep, you won’t wake up again. Yep, read one of those this week. Then there are those about struggles people have gone through (real or fiction, still serious struggles). Those make you think and appreciate everything you have.
And then there are romances.
When their eyes meet and her pulse races.
When they kiss for the first time and her lips tingle.

Hubby didn’t get what he bargained for when I read 50 Shades, but romance is very, very good for your sex life. It just has to be the right romance. Maybe you need something sweet.

Or something with an element of danger that makes you snuggle up close to him.
If you like the last one, Pilar and Jack could be the right couple for you. Her brother is kidnapped by her ex, and Jack’s there to protect her. Even though both of them know getting involved is a bad idea, neither can resist the thread that pulls them together. She’s his job, but one he’s more than willing to…do.

“Jesus. You two need to break it up. This is a job, Jack. Not your personal fuck time. And that’s my damn couch, dude.” Howler whimpered. “I’m taking the dog out. When I get back in, please…don’t be naked on my couch.”
Jack nodded and waited until the door slid closed behind Slade, then groaned. “You’re going to kill me.”
Pilar giggled. “I’m sore, but I want you again.”
Jack pulled back and looked at her. “Shower?”
She grinned. “It’s economical. Saves time and water.”
“Yeah, we’re saving the earth.”
“Exactly,” she said.
