If you are looking for sexy beach reads, you have come to the right place today! I absolutely love reading, and some of my favourite books to read are romance novels. I never picked up this genre until my early thirties and once I dived in, I dived in deep. I really love the genre and have devoured hundreds of romance novels at this point—everything from historical romance to erotica and while some were obviously much better than others, there was certainly a lot of romances that were just sexy and out of this world and make for the perfect beach read.
Because who doesn’t envision themselves lying the beach, big sun hat on head, cool drink by your side, with a book to lose yourself in your hands? And a sexy read for the beach is absolutely the kind of book you want to read. So here at ten sexy beach reads I think you ought devour this summer between dips in the water.
The Girl from Summer Hill by Jude Deveraux
I read this novel a while back, and I actually picked it up on a whim. It sounded like a fun, possibly silly read, but instead turned out to be a really awesome romance. I remember loving every page, from the hilarious opening chapter right up until the end. A spoof of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, this novel was a lot of fun, and as bright and sparkling as Austen’s own novel. So, if you are like me and a fan of P&P, then this is a sexy beach you cannot miss.
Seduced by the Highlander by Paula Quinn
When it comes to romance, I do love me a highlander romance. I love medevieal settings. And the nice thing about this novel was there was a lot of wooing and thus, it was something of a slower burn than a lot of highlander romances tend to be. It might be not light and fluffy, but it certainly is a romance worthy of losing yourself in, and definitely not one you’d regretting bringing to the beach. This is one sexy beach read for sure.
Exquisite by Ella Frank
This is definitely a fun and sexy beach read. The couple don’t like each other in the beginning, but there is a ton of sexual tension and plenty of banter which keeps you grinning from ear to ear. A strong, sassy heroine and a hero that rises to her strength makes for a sizzling read. A very sizzling, and very sexy read, one that might make you head into the water before the heat of the sun does. Definitely a sexy beach read.
Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas
This is an amazing novel. Lisa Kleypas is one of my favourite authors when it comes to the romance genre, and this novel was simply delicious. Great characters, a bit of magic, witty scenes and a smouldering hero. You couldn’t exactly ask more for a beach read but you get all sorts of heart stopping moments because the romantic element is just so romantic. Enjoy!
An English Bride in Scotland by Lynsay Sands
Light, funny and with a plot that isn’t predictable, I really loved this book. The characters were loveable, in fact they were wonderful and you’ll just read this book with a smile on your face. And you’ll not be disappointed with the level of sizzle. An easy, breezy and sexy beach read you won’t regret picking up.
Honestly, looking back over my romance reads as I wrote this post really demonstrated to me what books were stand out reads. These are definitely five that stand out in my memory for various reasons, and that I think can be great reads for a variety of readers. They might not be the newest publications, but they will not disappoint in my opinion. So happy reading to you and enjoy the sizzle in these sexy beach reads.
