This collection of erotica is a standard trade paperback size. It is not discreet and has a naked woman on the front cover. If you leave it out then your roommates or company will certainly be able to identify it as erotica. This collection of 19 erotica stories spans 211 pages and includes information about each author at the end of the book. The introduction is written by the fabulous editor Violet Blue. Violet Blue is an award winning author and all around sex expert. She has been on CNN, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and The Tyra Banks Show. She is also a high profile blogger and talented editor. She picked through all of the submissions and found these 19 to stimulate the reader.

The stories in the book offer a variety of situations and fantasies to the reader. I feel confident that anyone reading this could find at least one story in the book to get them aroused. Louisa Harte's "Changing My Tune" features a young woman selling ice cream to a hunky construction worker. She finds herself considering a sweet fantasy that becomes a scorching reality. Alyssa Turner's story "Two for One" a business woman in a hotel order a room service massage and discovers what a full body massage can include. "I, Anita" tells the story of a burlesque dancer who meets her match.

A woman whose marriage is over finds an interesting way to both get off and get even in "Fresh Canvas" by Donna George Storey. "Two Cocks, One Girl" details a long relationship where the boyfriend start being curious about other guys. The girlfriend decides to support him and help him explore these fantasies in real life after catching him watching some gay porn. The other stories contain a variety of themes to get the reader excited.

There are some BDSM themes in this book and use of words like "whore" that could offend some readers. I was not a fan of every single story in the book, but certainly I found enough stories to keep my attention. Some of the themes in the book might be offensive because they involve police or gang bangs, but I feel that the authors wrote them from a perspective of a fantasy.
Follow-up commentary
After re-reading some stories in this book I like it even more than I did the first time. It's well written and really appeals to female readers.

    No, but I did a different review for a book where someone was not into bdsm and I did not mention it in the review. I try to make it a point to mention it now in reviews.
