In the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis …
They’re romance novels, and the sex is explicit (seriously, there are some eyes-go-wide, mouth-hanging-open moments while reading). But they’re much more appropriate for teenage girls than Twilight, because at least they’re modeling good sexual relationships and attitudes. In one that I read, the guy and girl were having this fiery passion and fell in love, and then at the end she peaces out to go finish culinary school in Paris because SHE WANTS TO. And he’s all, “Good for you! See you when you’re done!”
So even though they’re $7.99 grocery store mass market paperbacks and a new one comes out every few months (thank GOD), I’m devouring them and I don’t feel a damn bit of guilt. If you’re looking for your next beach read, or snowed in read, or just need a damn sexy book, I recommend the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis.

Jesus, tumblr. Get it together. Knock it off with the gif-y ads and instead give me, I don’t know actual utility.
