Naked Reader Book Club Discussion: Sweet Love and Best Gay Romance 2011 (February 22, 8-10 PM)

Kristina Wright Kristina Wright
Valentine's Day is over, but love is still in the air and on the agenda for the Naked Reader Book Club! Tonight we're discussing two fabulous titles that combine love and sex in the sweetest and most romantic ways!

First up is Sweet Love edited by the lovely Violet Blue!

Looking to keep the heat? In Sweet Love, bestselling editor Violet Blue creates a world of lusty and in-love couples who live out their fantasies with delicious results. These powerful scenarios are recipes for romance that real couples can use as inspiration for memorable explorations of their own. This delectable collection will have you wishing for role-playing, exhibitionism, spankings, surprise threesomes, and much much more. Sweet Love's expertly crafted, explicit stories will really take you there.

With stories by Thomas Roche, Janine Ashbless, N.T. Morley, D.L. King, Andrea Dale, Kristina Wright, Emilie Paris, Kat Black, Kay Jaybee, Allison Wonderland, Felix D'Angelo, Jan Darby, Jude Mason, Teresa Noelle Roberts, Amanda Fox, Vanessa Vaughn, Alison Tyler, Dylan Reed, and Zach Addams.

"If you ever get a chance to try out your number-one fantasies in real life—and I assure you, there will be more than one—say yes. It's well worth it. May this book, its adventurous authors, and the daring and satisfied characters be your guiding inspiration." —Violet Blue, from the Introduction


*****

Next, we have Best Gay Romance 2011 edited by the talented Richard Labonte.

Short fiction that is long on romance, Best Gay Romance 2011 encompasses the dizzying emotions of the human heart in love—delight, longing, relief, despair, anger, and deepest desire. From first times to brief encounters, to rediscovered missed connections and longtime companions, editor Richard Labonté has curated a classic on the subject of love between men. Each story unfolds the "possibility of happy-ever-after—the warm, beating heart of romantic desire." Lightning strikes more than once during a fateful tryst in Martin Delacroix's "First Roach Pond." Edward Moreno's "You're a Dog" reminds us that love can be flexible, while Eric Nguyen recalls first kisses and the stirrings of puppy love–and lust–in "How Boys Flirt With Other Boys."

With stories by Jameson Currier, Derrick Della Giorgia, David Holly, Anthony McDonald, Tyler Keevil, Jay Mandal, David May, Shanna Germain, Martin Delacroix, Simon Sheppard, Tom Mendicino, Edward Moreno, and Eric Nguyen.



Whether you've read one, both or neither of the books, everyone is welcome to join in the conversation at the Naked Reader Book Club! Tell us what stories you liked, what make s a piece of erotica "romantic" to you and whether sex is hotter (on the page or in real life) when it's between committed partners.

Let the February lovefest continue!

I hope I am not late. I haven't read either of these yet, but honestly I have yet to read erotic books. I am here to see what I can learn and maybe find a new book obsession other than murder mysteries.

Welcome! This is sort of a first time for me as well - I have just started reading erotic fiction again and gave Sweet Love a try. I have to say, I am seriously impressed. I honestly can't remember the last time I read erotic fiction that I really identified with. I mean, I loved The Story of O and shorts by Anais Nin, but this is my first foray into modern erotic lit. I was kind of blown away! Why knew?
