"Show-offs surprised me in the sense of completeness I felt once I was done. The writing is sexy, and varied, and everything I knew to expect from Labonte’s work, but somehow this collection had more weight to it. The reality is that I can’t help but be wowed when I open a collection of erotica and discover pieces that are thoughtful and inspire revisiting notions I’d allowed myself to cement in my own mind. Voyeurism and exhibitionism as hopeful, as love-notes to a partner, as a rich fantasy that fulfills a place we cannot usually go were all things I hadn’t really considered. Now I can watch differently."
"The tantalizing, teasing tales in Show-Offs remind us of just how arousing looking can bethe eyes have it!"
"Reading these stories is like actually being there and I cannot think of anything that is sexier. You know when you get a book from Cleis you are really getting some high quality smutit seems to be one of their trademarks."
