19 Of The Sexiest Books You Will Ever Read

Sexy and smart.

3. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

I was 11 when I read it the first time and I wanted to be a boy and be in their gang and have them as friends. Then I read it again at 13, a confused mess of hormones with no outlet, and I knew I really wanted to make out with a fictional character (Sodapop Curtis, yeah yeah).

4. Losing It by Cora Carmack

If you have a sweet spot for secret love affairs this book is for you! Between the heroine, Bliss, and her slow-kissing professor, Garrick, you will not be able to put this novel down. Here's a taste: "We were pressed together so tightly that I could feel every plane of his body, but still I wanted to be closer." Talk about losing it...


5. Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx

As a 14-year-old budding gay bear cub who'd had a pretty sheltered upbringing in rural England, the fantasy of two all-American blue-collar straight cowboys going at it was impossibly erotic. To this day I'm still waiting for a cowboy to invite me to share his bedroll…


I read it over a sleepless, anxiety-inducing 48 hours because I couldn't get enough of the plot, but DAMN, the sex scenes. I even flagged them with Post-it note descriptions in a friend's book for her so she could get straight to the good stuff. My personal favorite is "post-raid rock sex in front of 20 sleeping men".

It's one of the first books I ever read where it was obvious the characters really loved each and there were emotions involved in the love scenes. In most books it's just a physical act.



8. The Crossfire series by Sylvia Day

The Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day. Actually, anything Sylvia Day has written. You can't get more than a few chapters in any of her books without being turned on like a faucet. I'd really recommend her Dream Guardian series but she's only gotten the first two out and hasn't been able to come to an agreement with HarperCollins about finishing the series. I recommend it, but only if you want to wait indefinitely to finish it…


9. The Reader by Bernhard Schlink

The way he described a woman pulling up her tights: "But then she was not awkward, she was slow-flowing, graceful, seductive – a seductiveness that had nothing to do with breast and hips and legs, but was an invitation to forget the world in the recesses of the body."

The first time I came to a sex scene in the book, I was reading it on my break at work. Suffice it to say, things got uncomfortable. I learned not to read them at work any more. Sookie as a character is much more complex and likeable in the books, and I loved seeing how strong and blasé she was about this new life full of vamps and other creatures. And she sure loved getting some vamp tail! A special woof goes out to Eric in the books.



I first read it in a bookstore when I was about 13, and later on I stole it from my mother's bookshelf. It wasn't the most realistic or romantic introduction to sex, but I found the jokes (there are many) and the cynicism of the heroine enormously funny. If only Fanny wasn't quite so obsessed by penis size!
