    I know people think smut is smut....but I find it truly amazing

    I know people think smut is smut....but I find it truly amazing that an author can write a story so full of NON-VANILLA sex that it has your head spinning, but at the same time is such an emotional read that it has me crying throughout! I am truly in love with all of these characters. The stories were mostly about everyday people living their lives until some hot guy takes that over. I loved that fact these stories weren't about younger woman. They are older, wiser, and can still turn up the damn heat for their men. 
    Four short stories with a common theme of a corset and love. This is a very nice collection with a wide treatment of the theme from sweet to erotic to historical.

    sincerely, Mistress Rose

    Unlaced Anthology

    Reviewed for queuemyreview.com; book release Dec08<BR/><BR/>This book is very hard to rate as I quite enjoyed a few stories and really didn't care much for the others. The overall rating would be more of a 3.5...<BR/>Well! I just finished ¿Unlaced¿, a new erotica anthology published by Penguin. ¿Unlaced¿ contains four very different stories that run from sweet reunion romance to a demon-infested corset that craves sadistic acts and blood! The vast differences were rather jarring for me as they ripped me from mood to a totally new one, but there were certainly a couple of stories that I enjoyed. All of the stories revolve `loosely¿ around lingerie.<BR/><BR/>Jaci Burton¿s ¿The Ties That Bind¿ is a sweet, steamy, contemporary story about a couple who married and divorced when they were very young, yet stayed near each other and jointly participated in raising their child. Now their child is about to leave and neither one is willing to let go of their special connection. But if will take more than hot sweaty sex to convince one to take another chance on love.<BR/><BR/>¿Undone¿ by Jasmine Haynes is an older woman, younger man story. She¿s lost her self-confidence and is looking for something different to help her regain it. He¿s ten years younger and looking for a `real woman¿ to photograph. The connection is instant and electric, but it will take a strong woman to defy convention and gossip.<BR/><BR/>¿Controlled Response¿ paints the scene of a strong, contemporary woman with myriad responsibilities who¿s afraid of letting go; and the dominant master who won¿t let her go. Joey W. Hill turns up the steam in this mild bondage and submission tale.<BR/><BR/>And finally, Denise Rossetti ends the anthology with ¿Rubies and Black Velvet¿¿a historical tale of black magic, loss, and the power of love. <BR/><BR/>Readers should be warned that this anthology is NOT for the faint of heart. Sexual escapades include sex in public places, bondage, submission, flogging, blindfolds, and a variety of other sexual activities described in graphic, explicit terms. My biggest complaint is the `cross-genre¿ stories included in one anthology. While that means there¿s something for everyone, I think it likely that readers who enjoy the harder erotica will be disappointed with a couple of the stories and vice versa. In some ways, each story becomes harder-edged as you work through the volume. But I found it jarring to go from sweeter stories to dominance and flogging.<BR/><BR/>I¿m certainly not sorry I got to read ¿Unlaced¿ and it is an easy way to get the feel for the varying types of erotica available from the featured authors. But I don¿t think this is one that will stay in my personal library.

    four erotic well written heated romances

    ¿The Ties That Bind" by Jaci Burton. Divorced fifteen years ago but still in love, Lisa and Rick would not mind a second chance together. <BR/><BR/>"Undone" by Jasmine Haynes. Margo feels undone after meeting Dirk, but shocked when she learns what his vocation is. <BR/><BR/>"Controlled Response" by Joey W. Hill. Due to meeting Lucas, Cassandra knows she no longer needs to hide her deepest ardent emotions; as she can finally let it all hang out. <BR/><BR/>"Rubies and Black Velvet" by Denise Rossetti. To win the heart of Meg, John must destroy an evil sorceress¿ corset. <BR/><BR/>Tongue in cheek, or perhaps corset in cheek is more apropos as that sexy garb connects these four erotic well written heated romances as the heroes understand their assignments starts with unlacing.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    I am a big fan of Jaci Burton, however Joey W Hill wrote the best story in this anthology with-out-a-doubt!!! Controlled Response is something you will finish reading, and then begin re-reading again. It is just that good.

    Hmmm...

    Only one of the stories within the book actually held my interest. Not one of my top picks.
