Content / Style / Audience

Violet Blue did a fantastic job selecting stories here. Each story (at least to me) started reading like a non-sexual story, and that's what held my interest through each one.

Although most of the stories tend to focus more on straight couples, there are a few that focus on the ladies pleasuring themselves, one story even with vegetables! There's a few voyeur based stories like Prime Suspect, where a rookie cop has a naughty time messing with another cop who was messing with her, and Timbre, where our famous transcriber loses herself in her work. Man About Town introduces us to a man pretending to be a woman, pretending to be a man, and falling in love with a lesbian.

From stories like Shoe Shine At Liverpool Street Station by Scarlett French, that similar to The Mile High Club, show you that even something as a simple shoe shine can be an incredibly erotic experience, to Stable Manners by Lily Harlem, where we see that even a stable in the frigid cold can be the right time to get it on, each story manages to suck you in.


As with all the other paperbacks I've gotten, with light to moderate use, it'll hold up just fine for a long time. Letting it live in the bottom of a bag, on the floor, or using it as a coaster will cause the books lifespan to shorten.

It's not the most discreet thing out there either, what with the lovely lady on the front and "Women's Best Erotica" in big pretty letters, so don't bust it out on public if you don't want people to know what you're reading.


I loved every single story in this book. Each one sucked me in and when I finished each one, I left thinking "ok, that was awesome." And it's not just for women either! My fiance has gotten sucked into a few stories so far as well.

    I'm assuming you said that only 18 stories was a con because you liked it so much? 18 seems like a lot to me

    I never read erotica before and I don't know where to start. This book may be a good place to start.

    You're quite welcome TG.

    Bunnycups, this would definitely be a good start to see how much you like it and whether or not you'd want to branch off onto something else. Although you could theoretically read some for free online and go from there too
