11 Raunchy and Complicated Books Like Fifty Shades of Grey

Fun. Sexy. Naughty. Fifty Shades of Grey brought a newer, steamier kind of romance to the public consciousness, and once you’ve tasted it, it’s hard not to want more. Here are just a few books like Fifty Shades of Grey that will leave you breathless.

1. The Boss by Abigail Barnett

If you enjoyed Ana’s quirky, self-aware narration in Fifty Shades, you’ll feel right at home with Sophie in The Boss. She’s a young assistant to a fashion magazine mogul, and she lives a glamorously unglamorous life in NYC as she tries to make her mark on the world of publishing.

2. Bared to You by Sylvia Day

You can consider Bared to You as a more mature version of Fifty Shades. Its protagonist, Eva Tramell, is another ingenue who tumbles into a romance with a sexy and mysterious billionaire, but they both have an edge this time.

Workplace romance has never been hotter! From the very first novel, Beautiful Bastard, author Christiana Lauren sucks you into a world of steamy hookups that may or may not be witnessed by the office copy machine.

4. Legal Briefs Series by Emma Chase

Legal Briefs is a series like Fifty Shades of Grey. With multiple books and side books, you can completely immerse yourself in its world of bed-hopping lawyers. Each novel is centered around a different couple, but they’re all smart, feisty, and very frank about their desires.

5. Wild Seasons by Christina Lauren

Fresh out of college, Mia has a one-night stand with a handsome stranger during a celebratory weekend in Vegas. In the morning, however, she doesn’t regret her decision. In fact, she decides to put off her future just a little bit longer and follow Ansel back to France.
