1. Sylvia Day, Bared To You, $3.99
Reply to @allabout.jayshi how tf y’all guess it right without seeing the cover? Wtf #booktok #smut
If you like 50 Shades of Grey, then Bared To You is the next (and many say, better) book step in your spicy book journey. Dark and twisty pasts, a mysterious billionaire, and a story that will keep you turning the pages over and over again.
2. Tessa Bailey, Hook, Line, and Sinker, $10.99 (reg. $13.99)
Got my hands on a copy of Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey early, and I read it in one night 💕📚 #romancereads #ithappenedonesummer #booktok
Hook, Line, and Sinker is the much-anticipated sequel to It Happened One Summer, and boy, does it deliver. It centers on the friends-to-lovers trope with some fun and feminist themes. It’s equal parts spicy and emotional, meaning it’s a must-read. Pretty much all of #BookTok agrees.

3. Sarah MacLean, A Rogue By Any Other Name, $1.99 (reg. $8.99)
Replying to @vanessavanzella hades and persephone retellings are my unicorn and the bane of my existence #booktok #hadesandpersephone #retellings
Ah, the first love storyline. If you’re not into historical fiction, A Rogue By Any Other Name will probably change your mind. It’s a fun adventure following our leads from fancy London galas to the depths of gambling hells. The best part? Finding out how the the characters end up. With 80% savings, this is a bargain for e-books on sale.
4. Julia Quinn, When He Was Wicked, $7.99
When He Was Wicked- Julia Quinn (Bridgerton 6) #regencyera #recency #recencyromance #booktok #bridgerton #bookrec #bridgertonnetflix #romance
For Bridgerton fans, When He Was Wicked is the sixth book in the series. In this tale we follow Francesca Bridgerton’s story. Deeply heartfelt and emotional with major levels of spice, it’s a must-read. Loyal fans love it, but this particular story often gets overlooked by those less invested in the series. Hopefully that’s about to change.

5. Penelope Douglas, Credence, free with Kindle Unlimited or $3.99
my favorite spicy books so far🌶 #spicybookrecs #soicybooktok #spicyromance #spicybooklover #booktok #bookrecs #romancebooks #spicyromance
Credence is recommended for readers 18+ as it follows the heroine, Tiernan, living in a secluded cabin in the woods. Did we mention she lives with, uh, three other people? Because she does. Needless to say, it has over 22,000 ratings on Amazon—and that’s all we’re going to say!
6. Catharina Maura, Bittersweet Memories, free with Kindle Unlimited or $5.99
👀😳 #spicybooktok📚 #steamyromance #booktok #spicybooks #steamyreads #steamybooktok
Bittersweet Memories has it all: deeply felt emotions, spice, and humor. It also has more than 5,000 ratings on Amazon, so it has to be doing something right. On top of that, it’s a big #BookTok favorite. It’s a tale of revenge, sibling rivalry, and some seriously risky business.

7. Ali Hazelwood, The Love Hypothesis, $5.99 (reg. $15.99)
adam freaking carlsen, everyone 🤧❤️ #thelovehypothesis
It seems like The Love Hypothesis is the spicy book of the year. This book is a TikTok sensation that’s based on the fake dating trope. You know the deal—two people pretend to date out of necessity, but they are so not an actual couple. Until, of course, the two leads begin to catch real feelings for one another. This book is such a hit it’s being made into a major motion picture!
8. Christina Lauren, The Unhoneymooners, $10.99 (reg. $16.99)
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren book revew NO SPOILERS #booktok #bookish #fyp #theunhoneymooners #summerreads #bookrecommendations
The Unhoneymooners is for those who might want to dip their toe into Lake Spice but aren’t sure how much heat they’re comfortable with. That being said, this is a book most fans devoured in one day or less because it’s just that good. It’s an enemies-to-lovers theme in which the couple pretends they’re married in order to go on vacation. BookTok loves it.

9. Lauren Asher, The Fine Print, free with Kindle Unlimited or $4.99
@maya_reads_spice thank u for the rec! #Thefineprint #laurenasher #spicybooks #romancebooks #bookrecommendations #booktok #spicygirlsummer
A workplace romance like no other, The Fine Print delivers on the heat. It’s like The Hating Game if it took place in Disneyland. This one also has over 17,000 ratings on Amazon, so readers are gobbling it up.
10. Kennedy Ryan, Long Shot (HOOPS Trilogy), free with Kindle Unlimited or $4.99
not me thinking this was gonna be a cute vlog 😃 #booktok #readingvlog #readwithme #longshot #hoopsseries #hoopstrilogy #kennedyryan <3
If you’re into sports romance, well, look no further than this trilogy. Long Shot is the first book of the series. It’s set in the high-stakes world of the NBA, taking readers on a ride to see what it’s like being a “ball girl.” This is a blockbuster of a book for less than the cost of a latte at Starbucks!

11. Lucy Score, Things We Never Got Over, free with Kindle Unlimited or $3.99
What were your thoughts?? #lucyscorebooks #thingswenevergotoverlucyscore #thingswenevergotover #spicybookrecs #spicybooktokrecs #romancenovelrecs #romancebookrecommendations #romancenovellover
Don’t let the daisy cover fool you, Things We Never Got Over packs a moderate punch in the spice department. It also has nearly 80,000 (yes, that’s correct) reviews on Amazon. That tells us this book has a chokehold on its BookTok readers. There’s an evil twin plot coupled with a hero who just can’t be bothered with love — so, yeah, you know it’s good.
12. Emily McIntire, Hooked, free with Kindle Unlimited or $3.99
Hooked by Emily McIntire 60 second review! Pick this one up IMMEDIATELY #smuttok #spicyromance #smuttoker #bookish #booktok #spicyromancebooks #readersoftiktok #nabookrecs #spicybookrecs #booktropes #hooked #emilymcintirebooks
If fairytale retellings are your thing, then this book deserves a place on your e-reader. Hooked is a dark and twisted spin on Peter Pan. It’s different than most romances because the “villains” get the happily-ever-after. This also means it’s pretty spicy, because, let’s be honest, villains can be hot.
