Smexy’s Top Ten– Favorite Sex Scenes of 2011

Since this is “SMEXY Books” I feel a favorite sex scene post is important. And fun! After looking over my list, I realize while these have well written sex scenes, I would also recommend each book as a whole. You know for those other things like plot and character development. But back to the sex…

Please note that obviously this is more explicit than the normal posts here at Smexy. I’ve listed them by the date they were published this year.

By the Book

By the Book by Scarlett Parrish (Review)
This book starts as a m/m/f, but the “f” part quickly goes away…leaving just Daniel “Fucking” Cross and Reece to get on with it, which was fine by me.

“Reece, I’m gonna come.” He sucked in a breath as I sped up. “I need…I want you to—“ His hips rose off the bed, forcing his cock through my grasp. If the light was on, I could have seen him. Known whether his eyes were open or closed. Maybe he frowned.

All I knew was his lips parted beneath mine as he gasped for air, and when I kissed from the corners of his mouth along his jaw, he moaned softly.


“I want more.”

My strokes slowed, half to give him a chance to breathe, half to give myself the same privilege.

“Reece?” Slowly, from the hips, he pushed himself against me, moaning when I tightened my hold. “I want…”

More confident now, I stroked him faster, wondering how I could ever have been wary of this. Him. “What do you want?”

“I want…” He grabbed my wrist. “I want you to fuck me.”


Shadowfever (Fever, #5)

Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning (Review)
Barrons having sex. Nothing else needs to be said.

Oh, God, yes, finally! My head slams back into wood but I barely feel it. My neck and back arch, my legs spread. My ankles are on his shoulders and I suffer no conflicts. There is only need and the answer to it all shoving inside me – sleek, hard, animal dressed up in the skin of a man.

I look up at him and he’s part beast. His face is mahogany, his fangs are out. His eyes are Barrons. The look in them isn’t. It makes me wild. I can be whatever I want to be with him. No inhibitions. I feel him growing harder, longer inside me.

“You can do that?” I gasp. The beast was bigger than the man.


“Harder. Deeper. Come on, Barrons, More.” I feel violent. I am unbreakable. I am elastic around him. Insatiable. His hand is on the side of my neck, around my throat, half cupping my face. His eyes bore into mine. He watches every nuance, every detail of every expression, as if his existence depends on it. He fucks with the single-minded devotion of a dying man hunting God.


Pleasure Me

Pleasure Me by Monica Burns (Review)
This is a virgin hero who has….a secret. (hence the blindfold at the end) *grins*

“To seduce a woman…you must use…not only touch, but words…”

“If you wish to hear that you’re lovely then I’m happy to oblige because I find you beautiful,” he rasped.

“Yes, a woman loves compliments…like that…” She struggled to keep her voice steady. “But sometimes we when your words are naughty.”

“Naughty?” He frowned with puzzlement, and his pleasurable stroking slowed drastically. She wanted to beg him not to stop.

“Yes. Words that are risqué. Forbidden.”

“Such as?”

He withdrew his touch, and she wanted to scream with frustration. Instead she reached up to trail her fingers across the hard muscles of his chest. Then with deliberation, she dragged one finger down the middle of his chest toward the thin line of hair that dove toward his trousers.

“Words like fuck,” she whispered, suddenly feeling terrible wicked for sharing such language.


Her eyes fluttered open to see the dark desire on his face, and a flash of regret as he gently blindfolded her.

Dragon Bound (Elder Races, #1)

Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison (Review)
A massive dragon shifter who is as old as the universe. Yes, he has skills in bed.

She licked her lips. “Dragos, I don’t think…”

“You don’t think what?” His burning gaze swallowed her up.

“I don’t think I’m as good as I thought I was,” she whispered. Her eyelids dropped down and she smiled.

“That’s my girl,” he whispered.


He started to move his hips again, pulling out, pushing in, his breathing deepening. Oh God, he was still huge and hard. Not human. She made an amazed noise at the back of her throat, clutching at him as he worked inside her. It was too gorgeous. She thrust up with her hips, matching his pace.

This time a moan tore through his chest and he shook all over as he started to pulse. She worked her inner muscles and rocked him through the climax, murmuring in his ear. He turned his face into her neck.

[…]Her tangled hair settled in a cloud over her face. “Not deep enough,” he groaned. “Got to get deeper.”



Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh (Review)
I’ve wanted a nekkid Hawke since we first met him in this series. It was worth the wait.

“Are you,” she gasped as he slotted himself against her, began to push, “like this” – a throaty feminine sound, her tissues liquid fire around him – “all the time?”

He wasn’t thinking much anymore, consumed by pleasure, but he knew one thing. “For you – yes.” Gripping her hip, he slid in another couple of inches, felt her nails dig into his shoulders.

And then…

He pinned her to the bed, and he had every intention of using that leverage for her pleasure.

One hand on her hip, he slid back out torturously slow…then slid in the same way. Sienna’s eyes flared open, held hi. “Do that again.” An intimate demand.

Teeth bared in a feral smile, he did. Then again. And again. Until she fractured around him, those tiny muscles squeezing so tight around his cock he almost came. He wanted to pound into her, to flip her onto her hands and knees and mount her in the most primitive of ways, but that could wait.

[…]”Next time,” he murmured in her hear as he collapsed, his heart a fucking drum against his ribs, “I’m not going to behave.”


Addicted to You (A One Night of Passion Novel)

Addicted to You by Bethany Kane (Review)
This was the first book I read by Bethany Kane/Beth Kery. It’s dark and erotic.

“Katie,” he groaned, his voice muffled against a soft breast. He used his grip on her ass to pound her down on his cock with increasing force and rapidity. His heartbeat amplified until he distantly wondered if he’d pop a blood vessel.

Shortly later…

He stilled her frantic hopping in his lap and held her in place while his mouth closed over a nipple. His arms wrapped around her waist, holding her captive against him. He sucked hard, triumph mingling with soaring lust when he felt her body shudder in his embrace and the walls of her pussy clamping and convulsing around him.

His cock lurched violently inside her. Her nipple popped out of his mouth. He roared as he came.


Curio by Cara McKenna (Review)
A virgin heroine and a male prostitute. He teaches her all about sex – and it’s hot.

“I’m close,” he muttered. “I need to stop, if you’re not ready for that.”

“I’m ready.” How long had I waited for proof that I was capable of reducing a man to this state of desperate need? “I want to see you.”


I watched him, thinking. “On your back, I think.”

He lay back against the pillows. I shuffled to kneel between his calves. Strong, handsome man on his back, uncertain guest looming above. He spread his thighs wide, gripping his cock, other hand stroking his stomach. I reached down to touch his shins and calves. I realized this was how he might be when he takes me, hard and needy.


“Do you like that you’ve done this to me?” he asked.


“I wish you could feel how hard you’ve made me.” His strain was audible, the uttered words harsh and hoarse. “Fuck.”

Archangel's Blade (Guild Hunter, #4)

Archangel’s Blade by Nalini Singh (Review)
Dmitri is one of the darkest, nastiest heroes I’ve read, and he is one of my absolute favorites!

“You make me want to do things no good girl would ever do.”


“I’m going to do things to you now that a good girl definitely shouldn’t let a man do to her.”

The words made Honor’s body turn liquid.

Then Dmitri put that sinful, dangerous mouth on her breast, sucking hard enough to leave a love-bruise, before dipping his head to suckle her nipple with strong tugs that made her womb clench. If his earlier caresses had been painfully tender, this was pure, raw sex.


“On me Honor.”

“I can’t move.” It was a breathless complaint.

He kissed her hip bone, felt her shiver. Tugged a little more. She flowed into his arms, all liquid and pleasured and boneless, he legs spreading to either side of hsis body. Lazy, she kissed him before reaching down to squeeze his turgid arousal with strong knowing fingers.


Divide & Conquer (Cut & Run, #4)

Divide & Conquer by Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux (Review)
One of my favorite romance series. SO much angst and SO much hot sex. A good combination indeed.

Zane grabbed for Ty’s shoulders and held on tight. Ty was hot and hard all over, and Zane needed him badly. “Baby, please,” Zane groaned.

“Oh, now I’m ‘baby’, am I?” Ty asked gruffly, his voice husky and strained. “What happened to making me jealous? Teasing poor Ty with the hot waiter?” His hand grabbed Zane’s ass again and squeezed hard; the he pulled at the back of Zane’s thigh and bent his knees, lowering himself enough to yank Zane’s left leg over his hip.


His lips came to rest against Zane’s for a moment before moving. “I’m going to fuck you until you can’t remember your name,” he promised in an oddly intimate voice. He pulled Zane’s lower lip between his hand and dragged his teeth along it.

Zane clutched at his lover desperately as Ty’s hand squeezed. Fuck, he wanted that. “Please….please, Ty.”

“Nobody likes a beggar,” Ty whispered.


Real Men Will (Donovan Brothers Brewery, #3)

Real Men Will by Victoria Dahl (Review)
I love this author’s sex scenes and Mr. Serious Eric becomes a naughty, naughty boy.

“Stroke yourself,” she whispered.

The shock twisted around his cock like another hand. He tightened his fist and stroked.

Beth’s eyes widened. She caught her lip between her teeth and watched with fascinated intent as he worked himself slowly. Voyeurism. Exhibitionism. He didn’t give a damn what it was that made her want this; all he knew was that jacking off had never felt this good, ever.


“Watch me,” he ordered. It was his turn now, and she did as he asked, coming up on her elbows so they could both watch as he pressed the head of his cock into her.


So what do we think? Are we sexed out? What are some of your favorite sexy moments from 2011?


  1. says

    The Le Douche and Mac sex scenes was pretty hot. There, I have complimented Le Douche!

    Most of the books you picked have my favorite love scenes of this year.

    But hands down, the most inventive, eye opening one is the upside down tree sex between Area and Cara in Larissa Ione’s Eternal Rider.

  2. shannonB. says

    Yummm! I’ve read several of these just based on Smexy’s reviews…you guys never stear me wrong in my search for filth! =) Will add the rest of them to my tbr.

    I believe I’ve re-read By the Book several times now. (and Plus one and Long Time Coming)
    “He fucks with the single-minded devotion of a dying man hunting God” is one of my favorite lines in that book.
    And I LOVED Curio.
    I didn’t think I’d love Dmiti as much as I did…swoon!
    Dragos was yummy but I ended up loving Rune more.

    • Mandi says

      I hsven’t read Long Time Coming yet. There is a particular scene in Plus One that I really liked :)

      Rune was pretty swoon worthy as well!

  3. Tori says

    Holy shitake mushrooms, I think you may have blown a few of my brain cells.
    Dragos, Hawke, Barrons-Oh my! *dumping ice over my head*

    Well done Mandi. :)

  4. says

    Barrons having sex. Nothing else needs to be said.

    I think my body is overheated now…you never fail to bring the smut!
    If it weren’t for you, I would be a deprived nun. LOL

  5. says

    all he’s good for is down and dirty sex, his hot cars, awesome book collection and his grilling skills.

    Best quote ever. Barrons *gulp* , yes, we are that shallow :)))
    Also, sex in Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James is so hot, I needed an ice bath afterwards…

  6. jaymzangel says

    ‘Barrons having sex. Nothing else needs to be said.’ AMEN!! My toes are all curly now. I need to go reread some of these & buy some of the others. Dammit woman, you are bad for my wallet!

  7. Sarah says

    Oh, my, Mandi has Shadowfever on audio! If there are reports of a glazed-eyed, panting woman vigorously manhandling the produce at the local grocery store, I think we all know who it’s going to be;)

  8. says

    Oh, how I LOVE Ty & Zane! I love that you added them in your Top 10 this year. I’ve been dying to read By the Book and you just convinced me that I have to go buy it. Off to Amazon I go! ;-)

  9. S n' Shhh.. says

    Holy Fuck !! Off to raid bookstores and keep these in my secret collection !
    Thanks for showing the er.. Light ! :D

  10. KJ says

    First time I’ve found this website. Some steamy scenes, there. I’ll have to look into some of these books- and acquire the first ‘Archangel’ book from Nalini Singh so I can start that series!

    Ty and Zane seem interesting. I’ll have to look out for that book.

  11. horzana says

    I was hanging around my grandmother’s house when I saw Shadowfever on her desk. I picked it up, read it, and was utterly hooked. Then my grandmother walked in.

    Apparently, the seventy year-old woman is a fan of everything erotica.
