    Blurb: Who doesn't have time for a quickie? Rachel Kramer Bussel has collected a wide and wild array of original erotica stories by authors who understand exactly how to pique your interest and get you off -- and they do it all in 1,200 words or less. Here are 69 short and steamy ways to get it on. You'll find sex with neighbors and library patrons, travel mates and coworkers, long-term partners and kinksters -- and even one very bold census taker. Perfect for reading aloud, Gotta Have It serves up sex quick and naughty. And who doesn't have time for that?

    What Stephanie Thought: Usually I start with praise, but let me start off this review by telling you one thing I didn't like about this anthology. The reason I'm beginning with it is because it's probably the only thing I didn't like, and I want to get it over with. Though these stories were fantastically naughty, they were so short, that they hardly got me "off". I know that's the point of all 69 stories in the book, but still, it's really difficult to be aroused by two pages of a really really brief romp.
    Moving on...
    This book was the perfect quickie read, as Rachel Kramer Bussel describes. Each story took three minutes to read, tops, and was ideal to read while waiting for water to boil, hair to air-dry, the bus to come...well maybe not that last one (your fellow busmates would look at you funny).
    What I LOVED was the writing's precision. Bussel is a top-notch editor and I didn't find a single typo in this collection, like I normally find (in masses) in regular erotic stories (usually since they are independently or self-published). Such a breath of fresh air to be able to read erotica that actually had proper grammar.
    I definitely think you vixens would like this one. Quick, intense, and fun! What we all love in good erotica :)

    Stephanie Loves: "I find his lips so soft against my own, but the texture of his mouth doesn't match the kisses, so full of thorns. They cannot keep my echoed moans from hiding and slipping from tree to tree. Like our first time, I can't hold back -- I was never good at discretion. I tighten under him as he slows his rhythm. I know I'm able to fall again." From Elise Hepner's Leaves.

    Where Stephanie Got It: Directly from Rachel for review.

    Radical Rating: 8 hearts- Would recommend to lots of really good friends.
