"Ms. Blue is known for her sexual prowess. She’s also a safe bet when it comes to providing erotic literature to read and enjoy a bit of 'me time'. This selection of erotica writers provide all sorts of fetishes and kinks for a novice erotic reader to taste and explore. Each of the stories are smoothly written with medium to high heat factor. There is nothing tame in this book. Just as there is nothing too taboo either. It’s a buffet filled with different combination of sexual partners and desires. There is something written for everyone. For those who are hedonist, pretty much every single story will appeal."
BDSM Book Reviews
"These stories all depicted desiring people experiencing authentic sexual pleasure. There were definitely some hot stories here, and I was pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the protagonists and the varying ways that their characters were developed and expressed."
Whether you’re male or female, I can easily see a wide variety of people enjoying this collection of erotica. A couple of the stories can be found in other books, but those are really great stories, so I’m glad to see them included anyway. This book is arousing, has high-quality stories that are pushing “normal” boundaries without being too kinky, and Bet Women's Erotica 2013 just is an overall fantastic erotica collection.

"If you like tantalizing and titillating stories this anthology is full of them. Those two sexy words describe the stories in this book. Eighteen stories that paint wondrous pictures of so many different places and different adventures, so full of likes and even loves.These stories are well written and pull readers into their worlds. I enjoyed many of the characters and their stories. BEST WOMEN'S EROTICA 2013 has it all from food play to visiting strip clubs and all that comes in between.Sometimes I enjoy a short hot read and these stories hit the spot. There is character and world development that make many of these stories shine. I love when you can get lost in a story."
"I am jealous of Violet Blue; she is totally living the life that I have wanted to live since I was about sixteen years old. She is lucky enough to get the opportunity to read through hundreds of superb entries and narrow them down to around twenty choices to then publish as the best for each coming year. Best Women's Erotica 2013 does a superb job of covering a wide range of fetishes that is geared towards women who enjoy well-crafted and highly imaginative erotica. These women are comfortable with their sexuality and are more than willing to share what they know with anyone who wants to join them on the adventure. Even if you do not connect with each fantasy you will at least be able to appreciate the level of craftsmanship that is applied in each tale. Each writer knows how to write a sexy and emotionally stimulating tales. I look forward to next year's anthology with bated breath."
