Okay, you've heard that line before.
"Based on a true story"
All of the stories in Ms. Tyler's latest collection, Pleasure Bound, are based on actual events. Names have been changed, but as Ms. Tyler says in the introduction "there are no innocents here to protect".
What you do get is nearly two dozen tasty BDSM stories. Most of them are of the man dominating woman variety, but not all of them. In any event, the primary audience for Ms. Tyler's books and stories IS women, and on those grounds, this collection serves its purpose admirably.
The quality of the stories is uniformly high in terms of writing. In terms of kink, if BDSM is your kink, you will find more than one or two stories here that will sizzle for you.
I could have wished for more woman dominating men (and others might wish for more man on man or woman on woman) stories, however, the anthology was more than satisfactory for me nevertheless. I especially liked Bella Dean's "King of the Road" and Jax Baynard's "Calling David Hasselhoff".
I also liked Ms. Tyler's own entry in her anthology: "Stickler for Details", clearly based on her own life. She did not change her own name in the story, she is fully a character, a little meta-detail which adds a nice little frisson to it.
Fans of Ms Tyler's previous anthologies should not miss this one.
