18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines. This is a Friday blog hop with the objective to find and visit other book blogs that share the same interest as you, namely books geared towards the 18 & over crowd, and make some new friends!

How to join in:

  • You should run a book blog that features and reviews mostly adult reads. Some Y.A.’s are okay but 18 & over adult reads should be your majority.
  • Make a separate post for the 18 & Over Book Blogger Follow on your blog.
  • Copy the  button above and place it at the top of your post.
  • List & answer the ‘Question of the Week.’
  • Place your name and blog title in the linky over at RBtW's blog post and the URL for a direct link to your post.
  • Visit the other blogs on the list and say 'Hi!' Following each blog is not mandatory but I know it is always appreciated, and if someone comments saying they’re a new follower it’s polite to follow back.  It’s always nice to spread the 18 & Over Book Blogging love!
  • Contact Crystal at (readingbetweenthewines10 at gmail dot com) with any questions!
Question of the Week: Does a book have to have kink of some kind (BDSM, etc.) to get you hot? Or will detailed vanilla love scenes work just as good?


No. But I do have a weakness for a sexy Dom who knows how to use a flogger. I love almost all genres of romance. It's a mood thing for me. Sometimes, I'm in the mood for something light--I'll pick up a book by Jill Shalvis. Sometimes, I'm in the mood for something a bit darker and pick up Madeline Sheehan. And then there are days I need a laugh along with a fast-paced plot--hello, Darynda Jones or Janet Evanovich. 

But let me be clear here--not ALL authors know how to write BDSM. And I do have my fave authors out there that make me take a cold shower and even sob a bit--Tymber Dalton, Roni Loren, Cherise Sinclair--just to name a few. 

And you don't have to talk dirty to be considered hot or to make me all hot and bothered. I have two great examples of that--Kresley Cole's Young Adult, The Poison Princess and Darynda Jones's Death and the Girl Next Door. Their heroes are swoon worthy and had me weak in the knees. 

What about you? What makes you swoon and/or is a huge turn off? 
I'd love to hear from you. 


  1. I'm a fan of Cherise and Roni's as well. I agree though, it depends on the author more than anything.

  2. good answer C.S. & I totally agree w/you. But I do tend to go for the more "adult reads" .

      I flip flop on Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult.
      Right now, reading YA Indigo Spell :)
