Content / Style / Audience

The book is comprised of twenty different (sexy) stories of lesbians and their sex lives, the narrator of each usually being a participant in the story and told from their view.

There are a vast array of settings and tantalizing sex -- from mild to, well, not? I can't see anyone who wouldn't find at least one they like.

Each story is well-written and really draws you in. From new writers to seasoned writers, each story is a true gem.

For me, I had never read any lesbian erotica. Hell, I mean I hadn't read any kind of erotica up until a week ago -- and that being The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty (review to follow), which was a severe letdown.

I had nearly given up hope when I decided to look into this book and wow! I'm so glad I did.

The writing is absolutely superb, and each author has created vivid stories with well-written characters you can't help but love.

I've always been a fan of short story collections, and the fact that it is erotica is that much better. Anyone can find some story that interests them. As for myself, I savored them all.

There are many stories I'd love to mention and review; however, there is not enough room, and I really would hate to ruin anything for anyone interested in picking up this book.

Follow-up commentary
Since this review, I have loaned this book to a friend, and they are just as happy with is as I was. I actually picked it up again and read some stories over once I got it back. It is such an enjoyable read.
