Dear Members of the Book Club forum, As far as I have seen in the rules and guidelines threads there seems to be no restriction on the topic of Erotic fiction. I hope that I am not breaking any rules by starting this thread and apologize for any who feel offended by the subject matter. Now on to the core of the matter. I generally keep a few books on hand of different genres to fit my fancy or mood. Broadly I primarily read Classics/Literary works (works of Scott, Dumas etc); Thrillers/Mystery; Fantasy and Adventure. After being introduced to literature I often found the average 'successful' modern fiction unsatisfactory. This was the case till Game of Thrones, the rather serious nature, the scale and the willingness to not shy away from adult content blew me away. Nonetheless I often keep lighter books for when I am tiered or have had a long day. Recently I decided to expand my horizon and try some erotica. I would like to share with you some of the books I enjoyed and hope that the members here will be willing and able to point me towards further reading. Author - Book title Lisette Ashton - Amazon Slave Lisette Ashton - Forbidden reading C.J Roberts - Captive in the dark Penelope Douglas - Corrupt (Devil's Night 01) Elliot Kay - Good Intentions Many of the books I found often had a rather submissive/reactive female protagonist with domineering males. I am looking for something where the female protagonist is more affirmative (along the lines of Lisette Ashton's Amazon Slave). Books where she takes what she wants rather than the other way around. I should mention that I do enjoy/prefer 'Menage's or multiple partners, although not exclusively. I prefer not to have LGBT content, no offense intended. Though I am largely tired of the shape shifting, were-x, y, z, type of books I am desperate enough to buckle if there are few choices to choose from. I do not mind darker stories with some grit/grime. I apologize for my unreasonable request and hope that the members of this forum will be able to help me find a few other books to read. Thanking you, Bookishnerd PS I read all the parts of a Series if I can, this means that the other books in the 'Captive in the dark' series or Eliot Kay's 'Good Intention's are already on my to read list.
