Playing With Fire- Stoking the Flames of Desire

What can I say about a collection of Steamy Taboo Erotica? It was hot! I really enjoyed the kink. Get your own copy of this book and get turned on by its spicy sex stories. This book is full of variety and plays with the edge of danger.
Steamy Sex Tales, Written from Both Male and Female Perspectives
Some stories were more like poetry, some stories were very short

What exactly is taboo? Some people live it and love to share their stories. Playing With Fire is a book with Taboo Erotic. The stories range from a scoring hot couple enjoying heated sex, to a woman writing a sex novel and the lines of reality get tangled, then back to a few lovers scorned, and finally on to some voyeurism to cool it down. The book is 170 pages and contains 22 short stories of people who "Play with Fire" in their lives and their loves. It also has a brief introduction by Alison Tyler who edited the book, and an About the Authors and About the Editor section. It is not a book of pyrophillia, with one exception. The Fire part is more about danger and after the burn.

Follow-up commentary
This is the best erotic book I read in all of 2011. I really enjoyed it, I have re-read some of the stories in it. The characters and situations they find themselves in still haunt me, but in a good way. I would highly recommend this book if you want to spice up your reading with some naughty stories of people who walk on the wild side of lust.
