Library Journal

Edited for the first time by frequent anthology contributor and erotica veteran Bussel, this annual volume features short stories from a number of notable genre names, including L. Marie Adeline ("S.E.C.R.E.T." trilogy) and Tiffany Reisz ("The Original Sinners" series). Bussel makes a point in the introduction to emphasize that all 21 selections were chosen for their strong depictions of nuanced, intelligent female characters with whom readers should identify, offering erotica that titillates while it "respects your mind." The book lives up to that promise, opening with Tara Betts's poetic "A New Canvas," in which friends Angela and Troy redraw the lines of their relationship using their bodies for their canvas. Some pieces set a slow burn (a longtime work crush blossoms into something much more when Ivy meets her boss Lennon at a kink party in Reisz's "The Assistant"), while others jump right into the action, such as Doriana Chase's wry "Scents & Sexuality," wherein Chase's unnamed protagonist finds her senses kicked into high gear by the aroma of hot, hardworking gardener Jax. VERDICT With plenty of creative scenarios, styles, and positions, this impressive anthology is sure to be a hit among quality erotica fans.

Erotic Excellence. Author and editor, Rachel Krammer Bussel, is widely known for her outstanding erotic fiction. And her latest publication, Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, definitely lives up to its name. Each story within this intimate collection is unique, well written, and sexy as hell. With so much sexual variety, there is something tantalizing for everyone to enjoy. While each story is worth savoring, a few in particular really stood out. The Carnalarium, written by Rose Caraway, i.e. The Sexy Librarian, seamlessly weaves together pleasure and pain. Rose’s sharp and descriptive writing style brings to life a dungeon of sexual debauchery, a perfect setting for her well-developed characters to explore the themes of love and freedom. Enter Me, written by Tabitha Rayne, is a tender yet triumphant tale of a woman who rediscovers her sexual identity after losing her hearing. Tabitha’s command of language fully engages her readers, taking them on a journey that is both emotionally moving and extremely HOT. Flying Solo, written by none other than Ms. Brussel herself, offers an exceptional and very distinctive perspective on honesty and the open marriage. This story is quivering proof why Rachel is an authoritative figure within the erotic genre. Readers of erotica will not be disappointed with this book. It will leave you wet, breathless, and begging for more.
