Smutathon Wrap Up

I’m here today to go over all the books that I read (and in one case, tried to read) during the Smutathon. This was a really fun readathon for me and I discovered the authors Christina Lauren that I absolutely adore and want to read everything they have ever written. Which is interesting because I think I inadvertently picked two of their most tame books smut wise.


This was a fun read but it was definitely inspired by 50 Shades of Grey. I really enjoyed the romance between Kate and Drake. I didn’t like the over the top judgmental behavior of one character. I also didn’t like how Kate had to keep reassuring herself of what she wanted and it turning into a mini rant on BDSM. Maybe because I’m already on the side of people should do what makes them happy (as long as no one is physically or mentally hurt) but it became irritating every time we had to stop the story to have these moments.

Rating: 3/5


I dnf’d this at 45%. I didn’t care about the characters and their insta love after so much time apart. I also didn’t like that Bailey kept making excuses for Adam’s behavior and he would never apologize. So when I got to the part where they didn’t use a condom after multiple times being told how many other people Adam has been with I just decided I was over this book.


I loved Amy and Sebastian’s romance. It starts off in a fun way and I loved the way they were together. I didn’t so much like the “mystery” they were trying to solve and all the random family drama from Amy but overall this is good smutty fun. I definitely want to check out more of Saskia Walker’s work in the future.

Lastly, I read my first two Christina Lauren books and I am a fan. I loved the romance better in Roomies but the characters better in My Favorite Half-Night Stand. I can see why everyone raves about their books. I think I might have read their two least smuttiest books but they can write an amazing love story.

Roomies: 4.5/5

My Favorite Half-Night Stand: 4/5

  1. I am so happy I found your blog! I am always looking for quality erotic fiction and I have added “The Agreement” to my summer TBR pile. Thanks for sharing 🙂 I thought I would recommend a book I recently finished that I absolutely loved called “Heat” (book 1 in the Club Inferno series) by Jamie Schmidt. The main character, Mallory, has gone to her sister’s super exclusive resort, “Couture” to escape reality (her abusive ex). She is assigned a bodyguard, martial arts instructor, Max and soon finds out that Couture has a whole other side to it, a world of BDSM. It also turns out that Max is one of the most experienced Doms at the resort. This book is ALSO like 50 shades of grey but BETTER with ultra steamy sex scenes, romance, suspense, and surprises throughout. You can read more about the book and the series here:
    I would love to know what you think if you check it out!
