Welcome to STEAMY READS Blog!


Hi, everyone!This blog has been created to help spread the word about new (and not so new) awesome reads!

We created a bunch of categories for you to browse through and we are constantly working on new lists! All of the books  on this website with star ratings have been read by at least one of us. If a book doesn’t have a star rating it is probably because it is on our TBR list and we will (hopefully) get to it soon.

I read primarily Contemporary Romance. Love romantic comedies. Also: Erotica, M/M, M/M/F, occasional Sci-Fi & Fantasy.

To keep you from being bored I will try to be straight to the point with my reviews and I infuse them with a healthy dose of humor and sarcasm. 🙂

My loves are: fashion, shopping (obsessed), working out, running, dancing and poodles.

I have two little ones at home who drive me nuts so I love reading to keep sane! 🙂

    Maria’s Post Holidays – Moving On…!

    As much as I love the month of December… I legit need a diet because I might or might not have gained some weight from all the festivities. Also the fact that I got chocolate candy as gifts from ‘Santa’ didn’t help. I don’t buy chocolate. If I do… that’s me: Until nothing is left… Continue reading Maria’s Post Holidays – Moving On…!
