Afternoon Tease

This book is a bad tease. It slowly builds you up and right as you approach the peak...it drops off and leaves you hanging. If you plan on reading just to get you in the mood so you and a partner can do the rest then perhaps this will do it for you.

useful review
This was a good book, but I expected a lot more from it. Not more as in a variety of stories, because I will say that Allison Tyler did a great job of making sure there is something for everyone, but more as in more sex. A good amount of sex scenes were just too short, and because some stories themselves were just too short in general, their sex scenes virtually disappeared. I would say on average that the naughty bits of the story were just long enough to get me excited, but then I was left with disappointment.

A few stories really were hot, but still could have taken it up a notch. I don’t want to say they were censored, but they weren’t steamy by any means. If you’re looking for something really raunchy and steamy, I do not recommend this book. If you don’t mind your sex toned down, then this really is a decent read minus how short some of them are. I am sure this isn’t going to be a book I pick up over and over but the few stories I enjoyed will be read at least once more. If read together I think a few stories in this book could open doorways that would allow you to explore fantasies and create new ones.

Overall, I wasn’t able to read through this book in one sitting or even two as it just didn’t keep me entertained. I’m honestly sad to say that after four of five stories I had no motivation to keep reading. Almost every author did a great job with a setting, but personally I just like dirtier and longer sex scenes in my erotica. The book is well-constructed and should be able to stand up to any rough play it encounters if it takes you there.
Experience
I bought this book after a friend of mine really got me into erotica. One day while she was with me, she read one of the stories and then put it down, disappointed, just like I was. I will admit she did read the least entertaining story in my opinion, so perhaps next time she reads it there will be a different reaction.

    Eh, I hope I end up liking this more than you did. I didn't read any reviews but just bought it over the weekend based on the average star rating and the cover. If not, hopefully I can sell it on Ebay or something!
