Books Like Crossfire Series List

1. Rush (Breathless)

Each book in the series follows a different couple. The first book is Rush, which follows Gabe, a wealthy businessman. He ends up being very infatuated with his best friend’s little sister, who is very innocent and a lot younger. Mia has always had a crush on Gabe, but she always thought he was out of her league.

Suddenly, Gabe gives her all this attention, and he sweeps her into this very intoxicating relationship. So, it was very fun, dramatic, and intense. This is one that I think of as an erotica subgenre after the Crossfire series.

2. The Beautiful Series Collection

The first book is Beautiful Bastard, and this follows Chloe, a new intern at a company. She has a sexual relationship with her boss, and they are enemies. In the beginning, they don’t like each other. So, it isn’t as dark and serious as the other ones I’m going to talk about. This one is way more fun and light, similar to the Crossfire series.

It’s been years since I’ve read the series, but I loved it back in the day, and I want to reread it. I would recommend this one. If you are new to the subgenre and you haven’t read a lot of erotica or romance, this one is a pretty good one to start with because it’s nothing super heavy or complicated.

3. Dirty Filthy Rich Men (Dirty Duet)

This is a duology, and it follows the same couple. It classifies as dark romance a little bit, and we follow Sabrina. When she was a freshman, she got wrapped up in two men who were very mysterious and dark. She was trying to get one of their attention, but she ended up getting the attention of the other guy.

Ten years later, Sabrina is back in their world. She applies to work at their company, and she ends up getting wrapped up in everything once again. This book has a lot of secrets. It’s very dramatic and intense. There are some dubious consent scenes and sexual assaults like the Crossfire series. I enjoyed the storyline, and the characters were pretty interesting.

4. Fixed on You (Fixed)

The first book, Fixed On You, follows Alayna, who has a dark past. She is known for stalking and having restraining orders, but she has now changed her ways. So, she’s tried to focus on her work and be more successful, and work her way up in the nightclub that she works at. But she gets the attention of the nightclub owner, and he wants her, and he will do anything to have her.

I was very into the relationship and the character development. Alayna was a very different, intriguing character like Eva in the Crossfire series. She’s not your typical female character in erotica romances. There are technically six books, and they do follow the same couple. This is also very intense and dramatic, but also passionate.

5. Backstage Pass (Sinners on Tour)

We follow Brian, who is the songwriter and guitarist for a band. He has currently lost his creative spark. So he can’t write music and income. Our female character Myrna, a psychologist, and Brian hit it off. Suddenly, she becomes his muse, and he gets inspired to make music again. The story follows five band members, and they each have their book and their romance.

The first and second books in the series are my favorites. Like the Crossfire series, this series is funny, and it’s nothing super deep or heavy, but you automatically feel connected to the characters. Also, you want them all to have their happy ending and be successful. Olivia has a bunch of other erotic romances, but this is the best for her.

6. This Man

This book follows our female character, an interior designer, and she gets assigned to design the manor, which is owned by our male character, Jesse. Their relationship quickly develops into something more. But Jesse is hiding a lot of secrets. He’s a very mysterious playboy.

I recommend the series if you want something very dramatic, emotionally exhausting, and addicting to read. It has some problems like it’s not the perfect book, but I still really enjoyed the series. The characters’ emotions and plot vibe are similar to those in the Crossfire series.

7. The Blackstone Affair Collection

The first book of this series is Naked, and this follows Brynne, a university student. On the side, she does photography, and she takes photos. One day, a successful businessman buys her adult portraits, and he decides that he wants her.

She is hesitant about getting involved with him and his world. He was a great love interest, and the female character was as well. Also, I love the way their relationship progressed, and I loved this whole series. You must read it if you want a heavy romance with a dark vibe, such as the Crossfire series.

The first book is Beauty From Pain, and it follows a successful, wealthy bachelor. He’s not interested in any real relationship, and he meets our heroine, a musician. They decide to have a three-month affair and then go their separate ways.

It had a very different plot, but it had a lot of similarities to Crossfire. I enjoyed the characters and the romance. This one is not as heavy or intense as the other ones. It is a little bit more lighthearted or not as serious.

He’s a successful bachelor, and everybody wants to get the scoop on who he is, but our female character is the one who gets to interview him. She becomes very wrapped up in his world. So, it was a very intense and intoxicating romance like the Crossfire series.
