Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
- Read an installment of a series.
- Share your review/recommendation below.
- Include the title, author and series name.
2012 has been the year of erotic series. It started with the Fifty Shades trilogy by E.L. James. Housewives, working women and young professional ladies all over the country read what was originally dubbed as "mommy porn." Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey were talked about like a real-life couple and not just fictional characters. Parody books were published in abundance. And a magazine was even added to the Fifty Shades enterprise.
Then came along the Crossfire novels by Sylvia Day. And oh, did they come! The romance and steamy sexy lives of Eva and Gideon took over eReaders everywhere. The paperback editions sold out of bookstores. The Crossfire series was more than erotica and romance. Dare I say there was a very intriguing back-story and subplots that pulled you in. Surely I am not the only person impatiently waiting for the third installment of the Crossfire trilogy to be released next year.
Deny this genre if you want, but you cannot ignore it. If you weren't reading an installment of an erotic romance series in 2012, then what were you reading? I'll wait...
