Hey book besties,
I don’t know about y’all, but sometimes I get dragged down into the deepest of book slumps with no end in sight. It is the absolute worst and I would do just about anything to get out of them. It makes me feel so awful that I could just scream!
BUT, I actually hold in my, technological, hand the solution for you. Seriously. Let me tell you what has worked to get me out of a slumpy dumpy almost 9 times out of 10: reading a smutty novella. It really truly works. There is something quite magical about how ready I am to read my next book after a good ole…palate cleanser, so to speak.
Here are some of my all time favorite knee-trembling, back-breaking smutty novella recs:
The Four Leaf by Lee Jacquot
It doesn’t get better than this (seriously, the audio will make you combust). Two best friends who are secretly into each other, who will make the first move!?
Tropes: best-friends to lovers, primal kink, “it's always been you”, mutual pining, hide and seek games, holiday romance
Stranger in Seat 8B by Nikki Castle
Have you ever dreamed of meeting a hot stranger on a plane?! Well look no further, your fictional dreams are about to come true. This one is HOT.
Tropes: reverse grumpy x sunshine, strangers to lovers, spicy elevator & plane scenes
The Never King by Nikki St. Crowe
This is one peter pan retelling that you do NOT want to miss. Oh, and did I mention that it also happens to be a “why choose” romance?! Yeah.. add this one to your TBR.
Tropes: Why choose, new adult, enemies to lovers, fairytale retelling, paranormal
Gifting Me to His Best Friend by Katee Robert
It is exactly what it sounds like…AND written by one of my all time favorite authors. This one will likely do the trick as it's about 95% smut and 5% smut.
Tropes: Why Choose?, friends to lovers, forbidden romance
The Dare by Harley Laroux
Quick and hot… just the way I like them. Oh, and let's not forget KINKY. Whew, this one had me sweating bullets and gasping for air!!
Spice: 5/5Tropes: bully romance, knife play, wax play, degradation, group activities
