Content / Style / Audience

If you are an erotic reader, just like myself, you WILL enjoy The Sweetest Kiss. It is Ravishing Vampire Erotica that is bound together beautifully, and is the most enjoyable read I have had in some time. Even for the crowd that dislikes vampire stories, The Sweetest Kiss will pull you into its wrath. Every author in this book has their own style of writing that keeps the book interesting from front to back. All vampires aside, the erotica was steaming! And if you like vampire erotica, this is a must read book. There is just something about a cold bite to the neck that leaves my hair standing straight up and chills rolling through me.

With 19 stories over 195 pages, you are guaranteed to stay on track and never put this book down.

    • Good mix of styles and content


The Sweetest Kiss and a soft cover book that is put together very well. It has a glossy finish on the covers that keeps the book shining and will prevent more rapid fading over time. The front cover is pitch black with yellowed, red, and green writing with a single "antiqued" photo of a vampire woman with long wavy hair, dark eyes, and blood red lips. The back cover again shows a single photo of the vampire along with a summary written in white (for easier reading) and the authors listed on the right in a yellowed color.

The book includes a title page, copyright page, contents page, 195 pages with 19 stories/authors, and finally the "about the authors" pages, and "about the editor" page.

The layout is standard and easy to follow. The binding is strong and has not yet torn with my extending use. It is an all around well made book that looks great and reads even better.

Personal comments

I enjoyed this book from front to back. Every tale inside was unique to its author. In most books I read, I usually find at least one story that I don't particularly care for; not in The Sweetest Kiss. This book had a grip on me ever since I first opened it. I was happy to also read a piece from Kristina Wright, a guest writer for EdenFantasys. If you have participated in the Naked Reader book club, I recommend picking this book up and reading it. You will have a chance to read a piece from someone you talk with at the book club meeting.

The Sweetest Kiss included so many great stories from very gifted authors. I tried for 2 weeks to pick a favorite piece from this book and still haven't. Every story is delightful.
