Best Sellers in Erotic Thrillers
Is the erotic thriller dead? I think not! Maybe it’s just been lying in wait. I found this interesting short article through a little research:
The booming days of this genre was really the late ’80s and early ’90s, when erotic-thriller mainstay movies with the likes of Michael Douglas, screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, and directors Brian De Palma and Adrian Lyne were enjoying their career peaks. Between 1987’s “Fatal Attraction” and 1992’s “Basic Instinct,” there seemed to be no end of movies about detectives sleeping with murder suspects or soccer dads and moms having torrid affairs with dangerous strangers.
Maybe it was a loosening of the ratings board’s usual qualms about sex and violence, or maybe it’s just when premium cable started to saturate America’s households. (Indeed, the erotic thriller still persists as a late-night staple on Skinemax Cinemax.) Whatever the reason, the genre’s moment was short-lived. But, it remains alive and well in ebook form today.
They may not be the greatest books ever read, but sometimes they scratch your itch. For shameless entertainment, I mean. 🙂
And now, let’s take a look at the paid books. Enjoy!
