Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey will love this because: It explores a world of seduction, desire and discipline wrapped up in a classic fairytale.
The Claiming Of Sleeping Beauty is the first in “The Sleeping Beauty” quartet from acclaimed author Anne Rice. In the opening chapter of the novel, Beauty is awakened from her 100-year sleep by her Prince, but (unlike the Disney classic) it’s through copulation, not a kiss. A page-turning read ensues as we follow the story through a world of sexual adventures.
Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey will love this because: The characters’ tumultuous relationship keeps you turning the page.
Straight from The New York Times Best Sellers list, Bared To You by Sylvia Day is an epitomic erotic romance novel. This novel centers on characters with dark pasts to work through and wounds to heal and similar to Fifty Shades of Grey, the audience is left wondering if the protagonists will ever have a healthy relationship.
Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey will love this because: The writing of Laura Billings and Christina Hobbs is just what Fifty Shades fans are looking for – and the duo met writing fan fiction online.
The saucy erotic novel Beautiful Bastard is co-written by Laura Billings and Christina Hobbs. It follows Chloe Mills, a hardworking intern and MBA student, and her relationship with Bennett Ryan, her powerful and attractive superior. Characters starting to sound familiar?

Tame Me is a graphic erotic romance novel that will not leave fans of Fifty Shades of Grey disappointed. With sex scenes in abundance, lovers of E. L. James’ Fifty Shades are sure to enjoy this tale by J. L. Leslie. Stane Zellon is used to getting what he wants, when he wants, but was he prepared for Wren?
Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey will love this because: The story, while saucy, is ultimately romantic too – just like Fifty Shades.
The follow-up to Beautiful Bastard from co-writers Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings is Sweet Filthy Boy. This novel is a little more sexually subdued and allows you to get lost in the whirlwind of romance, but there’s still enough saucy snippets to fill the gap left by Fifty Shades of Grey.
Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey will love this because: This unflinching novel has beauty, sexual discovery and fast-paced narrative.
To all that knew her, the bride in question was a happy and devoted married woman, until one day, she vanished. In her wake she leaves an incendiary diary, detailing a journey of sexual awakening. This tale by Nikki Gemmell is sure to keep you up into the wee hours!
