9 Steamy Books to Keep You Warm This Winter

SHARE

We’ve gotten to that point in the season where it doesn’t seem like winter will ever end. But in case warmer destinations are not in your future, what better way to warm up than a steamy romance? …Or at least reading about one! These nine hot reads are sure to keep you nice and cozy through the cold months ahead.

 

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

I’ll Give You the Sun gives us two love stories for the price of one! The story follows Noah and Jude in two different timelines, giving us a peek at Noah’s past romance with his next door neighbor Brian, and Jude’s current flirtation with the British, motorcycle-riding Oscar.

 

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

If forbidden romance is your thing and you haven’t read a Richelle Mead book, you need to get your hands on the Vampire Academy series STAT. The attraction between two of the main characters Rose and Dimitri is so intense, the tension nearly jumps off the page.

 

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

Did someone say forbidden romance? No discussion about forbidden romance—or Richelle Mead’s books—would be complete without The Bloodlines series. Vampire/slacker extraordinaire Adrian and Alchemist Sydney redefine slow burn romance.

 

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Everyone needs a book that’s going to make them swoon. Isla and Josh will make you laugh, cry, and squeal in Isla and the Happily Ever. They’re the perfect example that all perfect relationships are, well, not perfect, but anything is possible with love. *insert heart-eye emoji here*

 

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

Do you think there’s nothing better than a good hate-turned-love love story? Perfect, because that’s what happens with Shahrzad and Khalid in The Wrath and the Dawn. Khalid and Shazi have chemistry in spades.

 

Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

The couple that rebels together stays together, am I right? Amani and Jin’s relationship might be in the beginning stages, but what a way to begin!

 

Where She Went by Gayle Forman

WARNING: THIS IS A TEAR-JERKER. Where She Went is heart-breaking and real, but it’s also passionate and sexy. Get ready to alternate between wiping away tears and swooning!

 

Triple Moon by Melissa de la Cruz

After wreaking havoc in their high school, twin witches Molly and Mardi find themselves being sent to live with their aunt for the summer. However, they end up getting a liiiiiittle distracted from their training by their sexy new neighbors *wink wink*

 

The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick

There’s nothing hotter than a bad boy redemption story. Tim used to be the boy most likely to screw up, but he’s pulling his life together—just in time for Alice to notice him in a different way. When these two crash into each other, they crash hard.
