Hello friends and fellow book lovers! In December, Riley and Lainey announced that there was going to be another round of Smutathon. This round is going from January 4-11 and it includes a mini bingo board with prompts on it. Personally, I’m going to try for a blackout even though I’m not sure if that’s going to happen. Either way, I’m going to try so let’s get into it!
I’m going to try to find a book for each challenge and hopefully, I end up reading all of them. 🙂
Enemies to Lovers
This is actually the only one I wasn’t able to come up with a book for. I might end up finding something later but we’ll see lmao.
For the first book I plan on reading, I’m going with Desperate Measures by Katee Robert. I haven’t read anything by Katee Robert before so I honestly have no idea what to expect from it. I know that it’s Jasmine x Jafar smut so I’m anxious to see what I think of it. I know that a lot of people read it in the last round of Smutathon so I’m excited.

The book I chose for this prompt is Let’s Get Textual which was recommended to me by Ellyn. I haven’t read anything by Teagan Hunter before and I’m excited to see if I like it as much as Ellyn did. I have a post coming up later in the week
This is another book that I’ve heard talked about a lot and that’s Whipped by Jenika Snow. This is a SUPER short novella that follows a romance between a business owner and a plus-sized woman I think. I don’t know much more about it but since it’s 160 pages, it’ll be a quick read.
For this one, I’m going with Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas. I’ve never read anything by Penelope Douglas but this book sounds so interesting. It’s a romance between a girl and her boyfriend’s dad so I’d say that it’s forbidden or at least, unconventional. I’ve been hearing about this book for years so I’m excited to finally give it a chance.
At first, this was going to be another blank prompt. Since I joined Kindle Unlimited, I decided to do some digging and I found The Loner’s Lady by Jessa Kane. While the main couple doesn’t fake date, it is featured in the story. I think that’s close enough as it still features the trope. Either way, it’s super short so I figured why not?
I had a lot of options for this one but eventually, I figured out what I wanted to read. I’ve heard good things about Chelsea M. Cameron’s f/f romances so I’m going to finally give one a try. I have the audiobook of this one so I’ll probably try to knock it out on one of my days off. I haven’t heard much about it so I’m curious to see if I like it. I think it’s an enemies-to-lovers romance so technically it could double up 😛
Going along with authors I haven’t read, I’m going to be reading Penny Wylder’s book Filthy Boss as this is another one I found on KU. Honestly, this wasn’t my first pick but I want short books so this is going to have to do. Regardless, I have a feeling that it’s going to be equal parts sweet yet steamy which I enjoy.
Out of Comfort Zone
The last book on my list is Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon. I know that almost everyone in the romance booktube/book blogging world has read this so I knew I had to feature it. I know that it’s alien smut and some minor plot details but that’s all I want to know.
Those are the 8 books I have on my TBR for SmutAThon. I’m crossing my fingers that I get to all of them but we’ll see what happens. Honestly, I’d be happy to get to half of them lmao as it’s a new year. Regardless, these are my tentative plans for SmutAThon 😀
