Letting Go (The Surrender Trilogy) by Maya Banks

Letting Go (The Surrender Trilogy) by Maya Banks

Berkley Trade, February 2014; ISBN-10: 042527294X

In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there’s only one thing left to do: cross them. And never have the consequences of erotic exploration been so irresistibly inviting, so shockingly intimate, and so totally unexpected…

Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she’ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn’t give her: dominance. Lonely, searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she’s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what she’d find would be the one man who’s long been a source of comfort—and secret longing. Her husband’s best friend.

Dash has lived in an untenable position for years: in love with his best friend’s wife but unwilling to act on that attraction. He’d never betray his best friend. And so he’s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.

When he finds her in a club devoted to the darker edges of desire, he’s furious because he thinks she has no idea what she’s getting herself into. Until she explains in detail what it is she wants. What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world. He is the only man who will touch her, cherish her…love her. And the only man she’ll ever submit to.

Masked Innocence (Innocence series Vol.2) by Alessandra Torre

Harlequin HQN, February 2014
ISBN-10: 0373778376

The man was sinful. It wasn’t just the looks that made him dangerous, it was the cocky confidence that dominated every move, every touch. And the frustrating yet ecstatic fact about the whole package was that he could back it all up…

Julia Campbell never knows what to expect with win-at-all-costs Brad De Luca. And she’s starting to like it that way. She gave up safe, conventional relationships when she let the elite divorce attorney seduce her into his world. Now that he’s determined to strip her naked of every inhibition, she’s in danger of falling too deep and too fast.

But their affair begins to feel even more dangerous when a murder leaves a trail of suspicion that points straight to the mob…and Brad. Trusting a man with a bad reputation and a past full of secrets seems like a mistake. But when she’s forced to make a choice, the consequences will take her further than she could ever have imagined.

This is the second book in the Innocence trilogy. It does not end in a cliffhanger, and could be read as a standalone, though it is strongly suggested to read this series in order.

Reading Order:

  • Blindfolded Innocence
  • Masked Innocence
  • The End of the Innocence

Jacked In: Transhumanist Erotica by Gabrielle Harbowy (Ed)

Jacked In: Transhumanist Erotica by Gabrielle Harbowy (Ed)

Circlet Press, January 2014

Cybernetic implants, interfaces, and prosthetics. Genetic modification. Nanotech. These are the tools of transhumanism, a movement which seeks to greatly enhance human potential through technology. And human innovation always finds a way to use new technology to enhance sex. The stories in Jacked In take place in the science-fictional future, the gritty reality depicted in cyberpunk, and even in a very near future that looks a lot like present-day, celebrating technology and sexuality by exploring human modifications that are repurposed — or purpose-built — for pleasure.

Transhumanism is a movement focused on the radical extension of human life and capabilities—mental, physical, and psychological. But what good is living longer, stronger, and harder if we’re not playing longer, stronger, and harder, too? With heightened senses comes a hunger for sensory stimulation. In Jacked In, readers can get a taste of what the future of sex might hold.

Whole Lesbian Sex Stories: Erotica for Women by Felice Newman (Ed)

Whole Lesbian Sex Stories: Erotica for Women by Felice Newman (Ed)

Cleis Press, January 2014; ISBN: 978-1-57344-957-1

From the introduction by Felice Newman:

Outside of actual fucking, my favorite kinky activity is reading erotic stories. I love crawling inside another person’s imagination. What hot situation will she dream up? Who are the characters, where in the story will they come together, and what will they do once they get there?

I’m a voyeur. By reading erotica I get to “watch” hot women having sex. Sometimes an erotic story presents me with new ideas, and sometimes an erotic stories causes me to revisit an erotic scenario or activity I hadn’t entertained recently. You might say that reading erotica keeps me fresh. No surprise, since I am a founding publisher of Cleis Press, which has published thousands of them. As a sex educator and sex coach, I deploy erotica as the secret tool for women who feel stuck or emptied of desire. Read sex stories, indulge your fetish, get your kink on, discover your heat, I say.

Here are my favorite graphic depictions of lesbian sex—stories of urgent sex, kinky sex, vanilla sex, self-pleasuring sex, cross-dressing sex, public sex, butch/femme sex, voyeuristic sex, BDSM, edgy sex, passionate, dirty sex. It’s all here.
