Favorite Books That Make You Cry

dont-cry-be-strongBooks can evoke a lot of different emotions. For me, tears are a rarity. I am too mean to cry. But it has happened. And when I say cry, I mean the ugly cry with lots of heaving and tears and snot.  The lump of emotion in your throat does not qualify as crying for me. This list is not the longest, but they are guaranteed to make you cry.  If they made this mean old bitch cry, then everyone else is a given.

As usual, no particular order. Just books that made me ugly cry. Please add to my list in the comments since I am such a hard ass. I know there are books that I have read that have made others cry, so help me out and add to the list.

 The Reluctant Dom by Tymber Dalton -UGLY CRY for days. If I think about this book for more than a few minutes, or try to talk to someone about this book, I cry. But it is a beautiful story filled with a lot of love. And SEX! Score.

Broken by Megan Hart -This book broke me.  I was a mess reading this book. It is SOOO much more than the synopsis leads you to believe and SOOO worth reading. As a married woman, it made me think.

 Hopeless by Colleen Hoover -I know it’s a lot younger than my usual cup of tea, but it was just so damn good.

Slammed & Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover -These books were some of my first e-books and they were not only great reads, but covered a lot of ground AND they made me cry.

The Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred -This book haunted my recommendations list on Goodreads for the longest time. I was so guilty of judging a book by its cover.  I finally caved on a whim and now I have read this book more than once. It is a sweet love story with a lot of emotional angst and drama.  Totally worth reading. And it’s bargain priced.

The Last Hour by Charles Sheehan Miles -I am still upset over how this book played out, but I don’t regret reading it for a minute. Part of the Thompson Sisters series. The entire series is worth a read, but this one made me cry. Buckets.

 Shocking Heaven by D.H. Sidebottom -The Room 103 series is AMAZING. But very emotional. But AMAZING! This one really got to me. I didn’t ugly cry with the heaving and snot, but tears streamed down my face for the majority of the book.

Pieces For You by Genna Rulon You can read my thoughts here. A MUST READ!

And there you have it.  Books that make even the meanest of bitches cry. What makes you cry? Tell us in the comments.

Favorite Dark & Dirty Reads

WARNING: None of the books listed are safe to read without several pairs of clean panties and a jumbo size package of batteries.  Please be aware that the listed books are not for everyone, if you thought 50 Shades of Grey was hardcore, most, if not all, may make you uncomfortable.  These are my guilty pleasure books that I thank the inventor of the Kindle everyday for, so no one has to see just how kinky I am sometimes.  Happy Reading!

CaptiveInTheDark Very Dark & Dirty

The Dark Duet Series by CJ Roberts.  One of the best captive series I’ve ever read.  CJ Roberts has a wicked mind to have come up with this.

NeverHaveIEver

Slightly Dark & A Touch Dirty

Never Have I Ever by August Clearwing.  The title is a game played at a party, where the main character reveals a dark desire.  Very hot rape fantasy scene, as well as some BDSM.  Don’t worry all is consensual!

BluebeardsWife2 Super Sexy Dirty

Bluebeard’s Wife by Selena Kitt.  Selena Kitt is the QUEEN of hot and filthy.  It was difficult to pick just one for this list, I chose this one because it has a little bit of everything.  I would recommend any of her books if you’re in the mood for some major smut.  Some are short, but all are hot…I’ve read every single one of her books.

SlaveIslandMostly Dark, but definitely dirty too.

Slave Island by Claire Thompson.  Hmm, what to say without giving things away?  If you like captive fantasies, this is a really good one.  I’m slowly making my way through some others, Claire Thompson has a definite flair to her writing style.

9780778313533_smp.inddCrazy Dark & Sexy Dirty

The Siren (The Original Sinners) by Tiffany Reisz.  This is the first in a phenomenal series.  When I hit the end of this one, I just sat and stared off into space for a few minutes because I was completely blown away.

IntensePassionsDirty & Potentially Dark

Intense Passions by Kalen Laurel.  This one definitely lived up to its title.  Fair warning, it has a cliffhanger, but it was so well written, I didn’t even mind.  Desperate to read the next one!

Taboo Taboo Dirty

Taboo Erotica Volume 1 by Angel Wild.  So taboo, Amazon filters and they are difficult to find.  For when you’re in the mood for serious kink.  Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone.

TheClaimingOfSleepingBeautyKinky Dirty

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by A.N. Roquelaure.  What would a dark and dirty list be without this series included?  A smokin’ hot take on the Sleeping Beauty tale.  I’m pretty sure both Disney and the brothers Grimm would not approve.

That’s it for now.  I was getting seriously hot and bothered running back through my book archive and I just couldn’t take it anymore.  ❤ Lorraine

Favorite Menage & M/M

I love all kinds of smut, but I get a special kind of tingle from same sex and multiple partner reads. The frustrating thing is that while same sex reads are easy to find, finding one that isn’t ridiculously cheesy is not. Finding a decent ménage story is even more frustrating. Don’t worry though, I’ve come across some super hot ones that I loved! They are not in any particular order, I’m pretty sure I’d be working on this list until this time next year if I had to choose.

ColtersWoman   M/F/M/M

Colters’ Woman by Maya Banks. Totally embarrassed to admit this, but my Mom is the one who told me about this book. I, of course, scoffed and told her I would never read anything like that…five minutes later I had downloaded it to my kindle. Very hot and it had an actual plot too! FYI, it’s three brothers, so no hanky panky between the men.

Colters LadyM/F/M/M

Colters’ Lady by Maya Banks. This was a great follow up to Colters’ Woman, about the three sons of the original Colters. Just as hot, and thankfully not a repeat of the plot in the first one.

Unburdened M/F/M

Unburdened by Bethany Bazile. Two rock gods and one woman, do I need to say more?

M/M/FLoveSlaveForTwo

Love Slave For Two by Tymber Dalton. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY does same sex or menage like Tymber Dalton. This is the first in a series that follows the same characters throughout, but there are NO cliffhangers, and the whole series is awesome.

Stoneface M/M/F

Stoneface by Tymber Dalton. This one has it all. M/M, M/F/M, M/M/F, and oh yeah, there’s a story mixed in with all that sex. A really good one at that.  It’s Tymber Dalton, that’s all I need to know!

M/F/M

I just discovered Sophie Oak, so I haven’t worked my way through all of them yet, but both the Texas Sirens Series and the Nights in Bliss Colorado Series are so far incredible!  Lots of M/F/M, some hints of M/M/F with promise of more in future books.  There was even some BDSM thrown in for shits and giggles too!

M/F/M/M

Shayla Black:  I’ve been struggling to pick my favorite menage story by her….I just can’t!!!  I narrowed it down to the Masters Of Menage Series, please just go freaking read it and drop me a comment about your favorite so I can decide.

ATableForThreeM/F/M

A Table For Three by Lainey Reese.  This is actually the first menage book I ever read, so it forever holds a place in my kink drawer.  This is the first in the New York Series, all of which were phenomenal.  I carefully watch for new releases from her and they always go to the top of my TBR.

MeetTheBaumgartners2 F/F/M

Meet The Baumgartners by Selena Kitt.  I have no idea which number in the series this one is and I’m not even sure it’s the hottest, but it’s the first one I read by her.  It was nice to get some girl on girl action for a change as it’s difficult to find anything decent in that genre.  The whole Baumgartner Series is sizzling hot, make sure to buy fresh batteries before starting though.

TryM/M

Try by Ella Frank.  Seriously, THE hottest M/M I’ve ever read.  I cannot wait until the second in the series is released.  If you like M/M, you NEED to read this one.

MoreThanMakeBelieveM/M

More Thank Make Believe by Tymber Dalton.  Yes, I know I’m repeating myself, but really, it’s Tymber Dalton.  This one is a straight college boy  who gets into gay porn to make extra money and falls for his co-star.  Mmmmmm.

KeepingSweetsM/M

Keeping Sweets by Cate Ashood.  Ok, so it’s another college boy getting involved with gay porn and falling for his co-star, but definitely a good one.  I haven’t had a chance to read others by her, but I’m planning on it after this one.

TakeTheShotM/M

Take The Shot by Missy Welsh.  Yes, I know, it has the cheesiest book cover ever, and I probably would not have bought this one if I had seen that beforehand.  So, I’m glad I didn’t, because this was a great coming out kind of M/M with some incredibly hot sex scenes.

TheDistanceBetweenUsM/M/M

The Distance Between Us by L.A. Witt.  Loved this one!  Two men that broke up after years together are stuck in a house they can’t sell.  They decide to get a roomate: a young hot, also gay, roommate.  First in a series, the second book was just as good, third is not out yet, but I’ll be reading it for sure!

That’s all for now chickies, by no means all that I’ve read, just a few of my faves to wet your appetite.  I’m always looking for new ones too, so let me know what’s worth grabbing!
