Steamy vacation reads

If you have read the 50 Shades trilogy by E. L. James or Outlander by Diana Gabaldon you will know that a steamy read is the one that makes you blush and immerse yourself in love scenes. 

But if you’re new to reading hot and steamy novels, here is a quick introduction.

Steamy romance novels have a strong focus on strong desires, passion and sexual thoughts. Unlike an ordinary romance novel, steamy reads are sex filled books that’ll make your heart beat faster. These novels have  strong and detailed love scenes that are written as a part of character growth. 

However, that doesn’t mean that steamy novels don’t have good plots or likeable characters. Most of them have well-developed storyline with heart-warming moments that’ll make you fall in love with the genre. 

Whether it’s slow-burn romance, age-gap romance or student to teacher romance, these hot books focus on telling a swoon-worthy romantic story. These hottest beach reads are sweet, flirty and hot as heck. 

So if you’re looking for hot and sexy beach reads with sweet and steamy scenes that’ll singe your eyebrows,  start reading these books immediately.
