It fills a gap not only on the bookshelves, but in our discussions about relationships and how intimacy changes across our life spans.

I've read erotica before, but not erotic romance. I was expecting sappy love stories and instead found hot stories about couples I almost wanted to emulate. These romances are kinky, ordinary, and extraordinary. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in erotic literature!
Another great anthology from Cleis Press featuring sixteen sizzling stories of passion and romance. All the stories were M/F, involving married couples, work colleagues or boss/employee and strangers. There was a nice blend of stories that got to the good stuff very quickly, and others that had a bit more of a story to them. My favorites were Tuscarora, A Singer Who Doesn't Sing, and More Light. Other great stories were Over a Barrel, and Stay with Me. I really enjoyed this anthology. I didn't dislike any of the stories, and I'll be reaching for my favorite short stories again in the future.

Stories are not that good; not worth it
