Content / Style / Audience

There are 19 different stories over 206 pages written by 19 authors and edited by Violet Blue. Each story is unique but with one common factor; a woman’s unmasked desire. Violet writes that her image of this book is “stylish, coy, slick with gloss and stiletto sharp: desirous, dangerous; ice cream in the heat; love lost and found again; filthy with laughter.” She is completely right! I loved every word in this book. My eyes were glued and floated through page after page of pure desire written by women. I especially loved the very first pick, Changing My Tune, by Louisa Harte. I feel in love with this story because I was seriously into it, holding on, waiting for what would come next. Sex in an ice cream truck? Yes! I was tickled with laughter and my body shifted with warmth from fantasizing. I devoured Best Women’s Erotica 2011 and recommend to all women that are ready for a change. Women that want a book that isn’t masked or tampered. A book that is pure desire just how it really is. Best Women’s Erotica 2011 can also be enjoyed by all men that are looking for a good read that is written by the fuel that feeds your fire; raw women.

I love reading the Best Women’s Erotica books because I always know that I am going to have a good read, and the 2011 edition held up to that reputation! When I first picked up the book I was just wanting something to read for about 20 minutes while taking a hot bath. I love to read in the bath to get myself flustered and ready to go for the situation that comes after my bath. The first story hooked me! I couldn’t put the book down! I finally realized that I needed to get out of the tub because my water began getting cold. I finished up my bath and then retired to the sofa to get more! Hook, line, and sinker. Best Women’s Erotica 2011 is a book full of non-stop daydreaming from today’s most prominent female authors. I read mine from front to back in one sitting. I personally recommend this selection to all erotica novel readers.

    It looks like a good read and that was a great review. i love to read but i have trouble finishing books because they do not keep my attention for long. i was wondering how much of a page turner it was so i could get it (but i dont want to get another book that im gonna stop at halfway) thats why i ask. id love to get your input on this.

    I am a big reader as well and feel the same way. This book was a wonderful page turner! I just couldn't put it down! I finished it in one setting because I was so into the life of it. Women, unleashed, sexy, and on top of the world of sexual desire!
