Here are Sandie’s top sapphic reads of 2023:

1. All That Matters by Susan X Meagher

Amazing. I felt like I was right there experiencing what Blair and Kylie were going through during Blair’s separation and pregnancy with her husband.

2. Sway by Char Dafoe

Enjoy how Kinsley grew into herself and her sexuality throughout the story. How the dancers from Sway became her friends and never made her feel ashamed of being inexperienced in erotic dancing. Very hot and spicy.

3. The Contract by Cynthia Dane and Hildred Billings

I love the relationship between Jamie and Etta and how they tried to keep their feelings for each other to themselves orally, but it ended up coming out physically. It is a very spicy story.

4. Running Up That Mountain by Lexa Luthor

This is another exciting book from the alpha series of Kal and Charlie. (8 books total) Like all of the books, it has lots of plotting, action and sex during the war to save their lives and planet. Can’t wait for part 2.

5. Just A Touch Away by Jae

Workaholic ice queen, Winter and professional cuddler with aphantasia, Hannah sharing an apartment? A perfect slow burning romance that you can feel and experience what both characters are going through mentally and emotionally. I learned a lot from reading this romance.
