Having sex, giving up sex, stalking other people's sex lives: these are the themes for some of the steamy new books catching our eye this August. You won't see these romantic and provocative page-turners on back-to-school reading lists — but you're a grown-up, so let loose. There's a karaoke-themed collection of nonfiction essays on love, a female-penned memoir about choosing to be celibate, and a heartwrenching historical romance novel. Check out the most promising new releases now, and don't worry, there won't be a pop quiz.
