The model are cute but i think the real problem is on the choice of the pose and in some composition.

For example:
1: too far perhaps a crop will be better
2: overexposed and the pose i don't think is good
3: nice and if i can see even her face i think could improve
the other with the branches in the middle like that and with the overexposed areas I do not think it is coming good
4: nice pose perhaps will be better a different expression but the dress is overexposed and the alignment of the photographer with the door is wrong
5: potentially an huge sensuality shoot but the burned area on the face on one model and the position of the head on the other model i don't think was good
the other good pose of the arms but less hair on the face on one model and a more lower head on the other i think will be good
6: i think will be better if it possible see the eyes of these models.

Thanks for the critique.
For the intimate photos, they wouldn't pose for long, and they knew the usual "one more" saying from a photographer means a couple more shots to get the lighting right.
So as a result, I got what I could :D
For 5, yeah, the shirt is over exposed. I tried fill flash, but that turned out terrible. It's just the sun was directly on her which made it difficult.

I tried some flash, but the sun was WAY too harsh that day. I need a reflector for fill!!

I'm going to be a little harsh, but please don't take it the wrong way. These IMHO obviously and my own personal taste and thoughts:

I think all of the photo actually lack intimacy -- from a viewers point of view. Now, my assumption is that you wanted to create intimacy and not capture it.

To create it, your focus has to be the viewer, this means eye contact, closeness, darker images.

To capture intimacy, very hard -- the subjects have to be initiate already, you can't force it on them by direction alone. This is why actors and actresses say that doing such scenes are very difficult. They have to create it and you can capture it.

#5 (middle right) is really the only one that works for me.

No problem. Everyone has their own taste and opinions. :)

Thanks for the pointers however!

kay if you do an exposure more strict on the dress you can avoid burned area, after that, during the postwork, you can obtain a combination more balance.

However a good use of an external flash as you can read in some tutorial on this forum allows you obtain better results than you might expect the only problem
that should be accustomed to using this accessory ...

Well is understandable, considering the theme, and also the shoot was took on outdoors ...

I will hope that you could develop the theme in future.

Yeah. I tried making an exposure on the dress, and all that jazz. I think the heat got to me so not many ideas, and techniques came to mind. :D

Of course of course. There's always room for improvement :)
Thanks for the tips. (:
