Dim those lights as low as you want.

Valentine's Day is coming up, and listening to a sexy story is the perfect way to get ~in the mood~. Below, the romance titles users just can't get enough of.

1. Confess by Colleen Hoover

Simon and Schuster / yennyzhka /

When Auburn Reed gets a job at a big-time Dallas art studio, she doesn't plan on falling for artist Owen Gentry. She knows it's a big risk to be with him, but she does it anyway — only to find out his secret past could threaten their future.

Quote: "He kisses me like he's giving me every kiss he wishes he could have given me the past, and every kiss he'll wish he could give me in the future. All at once."

2. Sweet Ruin by Kresley Cole

Gallery Books / heartlesspage /

The Immortals After Dark series continues with (super sexy) immortal assassins, outcast orphans, vampires, and possible spies crossing paths.

Quote: "When two people form an unbreakable bond, it’s like a reactor, feeding them power and heat and a sense of belonging. It makes them strong. They’re the true superheroes."

3. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Carry On is the tamest title on the list, for sure, but the YA fantasy is plenty sweet. Simon Snow, the "Chosen One," is having a rough go of it: his girlfriend broke up with him, his mentor is letting him down, he can't get his magic quite right, and the evil vampire Baz (who is Simon's nemesis, but who also has a crush on Simon) is MIA. There's a lot of kissing.

Quote: "Sharing a room with the person you want most is like sharing a room with an open fire. He's constantly drawing you in. And you're constantly stepping too close. And you know it's not good — that there is no good — that there's absolutely nothing that can ever come of it."

4. Appealed by Emma Chase

Simon & Schuster/ britsreadinglife /

Hotshot Washington D.C. prosecutor has to reopen old wounds when she finds out that the opposing attorney in her next case is Brent Mason — her first love, and first heartbreak.

Quote: "Now that she’s back, here where I can see her and touch her, where I can talk to her and tease her, maybe even one day make her smile – there’s no fucking way I’m letting her go ever again."

5. Their Fractured Light by Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman

Disney Hyperion / rowanreadsandraves /

On the planet of Corinth, embroiled in an uprising against LaRoux Industries, six characters collide in a story of conspiracies, unveiled secrets, underground hacking communities, and intergalactic romance.

Quote: "We see them as they cannot, will not, see each other — we see his heart in the way he looks at her; we see her soul calling out for his every touch. It would be so easy if they could only see inside each other as we can."

6. Love in Lowercase by Francesc Miralles

Penguin / francescmiralles /

An oddball linguistics professor gets a surprise new roommate when a stray cat moves itself into his Barcelona apartment, and this new buddy becomes the turning point in his life — getting him out of his comfort zone, particularly to the mysterious and attractive neighbor next door.

Quote: "For the first time I accepted the painful fact that I was not a memorable man. The worst, most absurd thing was that I was hopelessly in love with her."

7. Defenseless by Corinne Michaels

BAAE Inc. / bookbuster /

A sexy CIA agent meets a super hot former Navy Seal — two strong personalities with dangerous lives, secretive pasts and incredible chemistry.

Quote: "'You didn’t mind me being sweet a few hours ago,' he reminds me. I roll my eyes as I pull my hand back. 'That’s because you were giving me my third orgasm. I would’ve let you recite sonnets as long as you kept doing that thing with your tongue.'"

8. Dirty Pleasures by Meghan March

The story of Holly's volatile marriage with possessive billionaire Creighton continues in book two of the Dirty Billionaire trilogy.

When 38-year-old Anna Forster, living through the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, moves to an assisted living facility, she is relieved to find another resident her age — and is caught by surprise when love blossoms between them.

Quote: "My eyes roll over his strong jaw, his dimple, his tea-colored eyes. A warm tingly feeling rises through my body. I'm so transported; I don't even break his gaze when a woman in a green T-shirt enters the room."

10. Built: Saints of Denver by Jay Crownover

It's a class clash — Sayer Cole, a lawyer who spends her time at country clubs, and blue-collar tough guy Zeb Fuller. Neither thinks they're what the other is looking for, but, of course, opposites attract.

Quote: "It felt like he was trying to make it so I would never be able to kiss anyone else in my life without having to compare it to this moment."
