Library JournalThe “Love Letters” anthologies continue with novellas focusing on verbal foreplay. In Thacher’s “I Is for Indecent,” a jewelry designer meets a sexy business mogul whose interest in her designs and her natural curves draws her into his sexual fantasy fueled by words. An audiobook narrator accidentally names her sound engineer as the hero of the book during a private recording session, which leads to sound effects of a different kind in Maggie Wells’s “J Is for Jaded.” Ginny Glass’s “K Is for Kick-Start” features an author with writer’s block who discovers that the key to rejuvenating her sex scenes is to discuss them with her editor, the inspiration for those scenes. And in Emily Cale’s “L Is for Lessons,” a woman turns to her female best friend for help in learning the phone sex trade and is turned on by her teacher.
Verdict These erotic adventures focus on brief encounters and may not appeal to readers seeking a romance or relationship in the content. But for those wanting a quick read or a bit of titillation, these anthologies fill the bill. Recommended for libraries where the first two “Love Letters” anthologies—Obeying Desire (2013) and Duty To Please (2013)—are popular.—Melanie C. Duncan, Shurling Lib., Macon, GA
