A How-To Guide for Reading Steamy Romance

Sure...everyone knows how to actually read, but I think there is a process to making the romance-reading process even more enjoyable.

Step 1: Choose a book with the yummiest cover ever.

You need a visual for the hotness inside the book. Preferably a visual with rock hard abs that you want to run your tongue over.

Step 2: Find a reading spot.

I recommend somewhere comfy and quiet and private so you can avoid odd looks while you fan yourself and/or drool. Or if, perhaps, you'd like to participate along with the characters, if you know what I mean. ;)

Step 3: Acquire sustenance.

I like a glass of wine while I read. I'm sure others prefer coffee or other warm beverages. And a sexy snack is a must. Chocolate tops the list, even better if it's fancy with caramel or nuts or any other yumminess. Also acceptable, desserts of any kind, including, but not limited to, cookies, pie, cake, ice cream. Or if you have access to a hunky pool boy, he can feed you grapes so you don't have to take your eyes off the page.

Step 4: Clear your schedule.

As we all know, a great book will just suck you right in, flipping pages as fast as we can read the last word on the bottom. A great book can make you forget all about the laundry, the dishes, the whining kids.

Step 5: Lose yourself.

Sink into that comfy chair, sip that wine. Allow yourself to tune out the world and dive into the love, the angst, the sexual tension, and then the steamy sex when it finally does happen. Lose yourself in the world the author has created for you. It's a gift really. You've been given an escape to another world. Take full advantage ;)

And if you need a suggestion for a new destination, how about a lingerie shop and the cast of characters that operate it. Not to mention the hot guys they hire to be their "Spokespenises."

A sexy, laugh-out-loud love story about a woman trying to save her failing lingerie business with a new product—“personal massagers” made to the specs of the spokesman of her choice! But when she falls for the first model she meets, how can she prove she’s his perfect fit?

With their business in trouble, Mia and Bryn must pull out all the stops to save their shop. Things get sticky when Mia, owner of Classy ‘n’ Sassy Lingerie, has to go on five blind “dates” to find the right model for the big marketing plan that will save the store. But they aren’t your ordinary blind dates. Mia has to test out the “goods” to find the perfect spokespenis—the model for Classy ‘n’ Sassy’s newest line of lifelike dildos. 

Not realizing Mia is on a mission, Oliver Christensen approaches her in a bar and Mia mistakes him for model #1. Oliver decides to play along. But just how far is he willing to take this charade in order to get closer to Mia? And what happens if Mia’s Blind Date #1 turns out to be The One?
