So that book might have had a little too much spice for me.

The BookTok community uses the words "spice" and "spicy" to denote that a book contains sexually explicit content. Often, BookTok users rate a book's spice level on a scale of 0 to 5 or mild to hot. The higher the book's spice level, the more NSFW its content is.
Many videos discussing spicy books also include the hot pepper emoji. This emoji can stand in for the words "spice" or "spicy" in the video's captions and/or description. (The more peppers a video contains, the more explicit the book being discussed likely was.)
