erotic audiobooks Amazon

Amazon rating: 4 out of 5 stars

From the publisher: With stories that are edgy as shiny spurs and tender as broken-in leather, 15 first-rate writers share their take on cowboys – the iconic fantasy, the calling, and the attitude that has nothing to do with gender. Whether in the Old West or the Australian outback, New England or the Great Plains, the lesbian cowboys in these stories work hard, ride hard, and play hard in the saddle and in bed. Contributors Radclyffe and Jove Belle depict the rough and tumble world of female rodeo riders, while Cheyenne Blue describes a charged encounter between a renegade cattle driver and national park ranger, and Delilah Devlin writes about a hired hand who may be a woman but is more than a match for any man. Lesbian Cowboys is sexy, steamy, and crackling with erotic energy.

But there’s a price to pay for such magic, as several of the men in these stories learn. Listen, unbutton, relax, and sink your teeth into this audiobook. The taste will linger for days.

Amazon rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

From the publisher: I’ve got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That’s pretty much where my bio ends. Honestly, I don’t need to say anything else. I’ve just sold 99 percent of women on going home with me. Do I sound like an asshole to you? That’s because I am. And guess what? It works for me just fine. Or at least it did…until I met her. Books talk about sparks flying. F–k that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm. Only one problem: She wouldn’t tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest f–king night of my life. Now I’ve had a taste of unicorn pussy – the sweetest, rarest of all pussy – and I need it again. So what’s an asshole to do? I took this problem to the street, a missed connection gone viral. And when I find her? I’m keeping her.

10) She Comes First: The Thinking Man’s Guide to Pleasuring a Woman by Ian Kerner

sexy audiobooks Amazon

Amazon rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

From the publisher: As women everywhere will attest, when it comes to understanding female sexuality, most guys know more about what’s under the hood of a car than under the hood of a clitoris. And while it seems that men have struggled valiantly since the dawn of time to find ways to reliably elicit the female orgasm, rare is the guy who has the modesty to ask: “What do I do?” Ironically, the answer has always been right there on the tip of his tongue. Welcome to the world of She Comes First, where the mystery of female satisfaction is solved and the tongue is proven mightier than the sword. According to Ian Kerner, clinical sexologist and evangelist of the female orgasm, oral sex has long been deemed an optional aspect of foreplay, but, in fact, it’s coreplay: simply the best way for leading a woman through the entire process of sexual response. Fun, informative, and easy to read, She Comes First is a virtual encyclopedia of female pleasure, detailing dozens of tried-and-true techniques for consistently satisfying a woman and step-by-step instructions to ensure success. These simple methods represent a new era in sexual intimacy, one in which the exchange of pleasure occurs on a level playing field and fulfillment is mutual.

In this steamy collection, we take a ride to the top of a high-rise under construction for a precarious steel-beam encounter; go down in the belly of a dark steamy mine; hang out with some hunky, sweaty landscapers; and slip into the construction manager’s office for a quickie. Wherever we go, you’ll find sexy, loving men who are turned on by more than their buddies’ tools. In this world, the hats are not the only thing that’s hard.
