Content / Style / Audience

The basic premise on all of these stories are that there are lusty women who wish to fulfill their lustiness. Ok, maybe it sounds a bit silly when I say it that way, but that's the basic theme. Women In Lust has 20 stories all geared around women who know what they want. Most of them feature heterosexual couplings, but a few delve into a little bit more. There's otherwise a good range of content in the stories, and a good mix of "vanilla" versus "BDSM" scenes. Those who enjoy reading about more extreme scenes may not like these stories as much, but there's nothing terribly extreme to bother anybody who may be a bit more squeamish.

Her, Him, and Them starts out with a little lesbianism, then ventures into some heterosexual-ness, and finishes with a male/male/female threesome as our main character goes on her sexual adventure. Smoke features another MMF pairing as our lead lady finds herself propositioning a few men in an alley while her husband waits for her in a bar.

If you're tired of the same old "young woman turns 18 and lusts after her high school teacher" scenario, you'll enjoy a fresh look on the "teacher crush" in Hot For Teacher that features a woman in her mid 40's lusting after her younger college professor. After getting up the nerve to approach him in his office, she's surprised to learn that he's also interested in her, but also has a bit of a kinky side that she discovers she really enjoys.

Cherry Blossom is a beautifully written story about a woman on a trip to Japan with her partner, only he doesn't make an appearance in the story as any more than a footnote. Instead, the story focuses on our main character and the lovely woman she bumps into in the hallway. The lovely woman is a massuese who works at the inn and as it turns out, is also an expert in giving G spot massages.


This is your basic paperback, 8" x 5 1/2", and bound well enough that unless you're really abusive it should hold on for a while. The cover isn't overly risque but also isn't discreet either. The back also has a QR code you can scan.


I do like this book, although I'm a bit more on the neutral side than on the omg awesome side. A few stories were misses for me, but not many books have personal winners all the way through, so that's really no fault of the book. All of the stories were well written though, at least in my opinion. My personal favorites out of it were Cherry Blossom and [Hot For Teacher], although I can't think of one I really didn't like, even if they didn't all get me super hot.

    Great review, thanks!

    Hmm, thanks for the review. I think I won't bother picking up this one. I prefer more kink, but as a feminist I love the concept.
