Complimentary copy provided by Naked Reader Book Club in exchange for an honest an unbiased review Overall this was just an eh anthology for me. There are lots of fetishes I'm not fond of, and thus couldn't find myself enjoying. My 6 heart rating doesn't reflect my disfavor for the fetishes, but rather, my inability to really get into the stories because of this distaste. This isn't just about the topics either. I feel Violet Blue wasn't as careful in selecting stories for this one, because some of them were just boring. There are a few fantastic mind-blowing stories, yes, but also many mediocre, unmemorable ones too. Because it has been highly requested when I've reviewed erotica anthologies in the past, I'll do brief summaries for my favorite stories: Internet Café au Lay— Kurt's horny lover seduces him at Seabiscuits, a very chique and very crowded internet café. I absolutely adored this story. The public sex setting is thrilling, and the straight couple realistic. Silkenvoice's voice is strong: flows smoothly and packs a punch. Underpants— Dan and his lover explore the naughtiness and arousal of, no, not the sexy black thong, but the white cotton knickers. Fetish story for lingerie targeted toward innocent youngsters, or perhaps more mature women (dare we call them granny panties?). Red— Bode and Amelia run away to the wilderness for the weekend to play out Bode's most precious fantasy: the wolf scene of Little Red Riding Hood. This was an erotic twist to the folk tale, really smooth and a good parallel. The Hotel— Adam and his lover pose as 'Jared' and 'Arianna' to fulfill their mutual fantasy: the meeting at a bar as strangers scene. The F Bar, in the hotel they 'meet for the first time' at, is the perfect bar setting, and the room above, an even better encounter. This one's pretty short but still sexy regardless! New Day, New Life— cute ménage story (f/f/m) involving Rachelle, her husband Mike, and an attractive, intelligent tour guide, Eliska. I liked the vacation scene (gorgeous Prague!). An Age Play— hands down, my favorite story in this anthology! Jean's a renown romance author, and she and her husband, Mark often play out the fantasies (swash-buckling pirates and ripe virgin maidens galore!) in her novels. Lately, however, the two have been eyeing the younger generation — I mean, fresh-faced, naïve, and enthusiastic — what's not to love? When Jean goes to England on a research trip, she runs into a college student she knows from dance class, Eric, someone she's irrevocably been attracted to for years. With Mark's permission, she seduces him — he is legal now, after all! — and even teaches him a few lessons along the way. I love cougar stories, especially forbidden extramarital ones ;) Kammer has a brilliant style and her characters are really well-fleshed-out. The Female Gaze— Alex and Rory, who've been steady for a long time now, take risks in the bedroom by actualizing a long-desired yet oppressed fantasy of bringing another man into the bedroom. Great m/m/f ménage story, with Bussel's lyrical style and feisty characters.
