Some Like it Bi: Erotic Tales of Bisexual Ménage, contains nine erotic short stories guaranteed to arouse even the most demanding human, spirit or shifter ! While I absolutely loved some of the stories there were a couple that just made me cringe. I realize that reading tastes differ among people and because of this I'll refrain from dissecting the stories that didn't appeal to me. There were 3 stories that stood apart from all the others for me and those were; Seducing Sunshine ( Jennifer Roberts) , Y'know They Come in Threes (Anthony Beal) and About Last Night (Dani Brown).
This was my 2nd time reading Seducing Sunshine by Jennifer Roberts and I enjoyed the second helping just as much as the first. Seducing Sunshine manages to change the readers mind about Sunshine's roomie once you're aware of the reasons behind his harassment of Sunshine. The ending will leave you with a smile on your face.
Y'know They Come in Threes is the 2nd short story I've read by Anthony Beal. I am now officially a fan and will no doubt put skid marks on my debit card buying up his works as soon as I am done with this review. Y'know They Come in Threes is a poignant short about love, loss and grief. The twisty ending literally left me with my mouth open. Bravo Beal. Bravo.
Have you ever woken up after a night of partying hung over and not quite remembering what happened the night before? Oh c'mon people I know this hasn't happened just to me! About Last Night by Dani Brown is something like one of my past experiences except the female character in About Last Night wakes up in her bed between two hunky guys she knows whereas I woke up with my hair in 4 pigtails and a sharpie drawn moustache above my upper lip. Dani Brown did good here and best of all the ending promised that we'll be hearing from Andy (the girl) and her two friends again.
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes, I would. It was well worth the price of the book just for the pleasure of reading Seducing Sunshine ( Jennifer Roberts) , Y'know They Come in Threes (Anthony Beal) and About Last Night (Dani Brown).

When Jennifer Roberts’ new anthology, Some Like it Bi: Erotic tales of bisexual ménage fell into my greedy little hands I knew it would be so hot it would burn. I was right, so I licked my wounds and tore through it, beginning to end in one read.
From seasoned play enthusiasts, scene-curious introverts, surprise rendezvous mischief-makers, to romantically bound triads, this collection of stories covers all the myriad configurations of the love triangle, with promises to entice and ensnare. If you want a glimpse into the world of threesomes, queue up to this little peep hole:
While some of the stories don’t read as polished as others, the spirit of menage prevails throughout. Particularly worth noting is “Surprise” by Laura B. Cooper. It’s hot, well-written, and has a strong voice. This story stands out from the others, as its jaded, swinging narrator thinks she’s done it all and is a bit bored with her wild sexual pursuits. She walks away from her overly sex-slaked life only to stumble onto a new fondness–with her husband, no less–right in her own backyard. Sort of.
The collection’s editor, Roberts’, contribution is “Seducing Sunshine,” a sweet, personable story of an unsuspecting trio finding abandon together. The backbone of the collection, it provides a hint of genderqueer that the other stories don’t embody, and really taps into the vibe of young poly relationships.
Apart from being the only paranormal piece in the anthology, “Y’Know, They Come In Threes,” by Anthony Beal sets itself apart as a beautifully written, haunting, and engaging story. Beal builds a world in a mere few pages that is dark and enthralling, as well as a relationship that I really cared about. That it’s steamy is a bonus. I really fell for its art in lines like, “Eden, in turn, regularly spent them like found money, capriciously, as if each moment of pleasure with them were her last…” Despite that it ended exactly as needed, I wasn’t ready to stop reading it.
Some Like it Bi features the work of Mistress Rae, Daisy Dunn, Laura B. Cooper, Jennifer Roberts, T.S. Addison, K. Rowe, Anthony Beal, and Dani Brown. Read more about the contributors and the anthology at the League of Extraordinary Indie Authors’ Facebook page.
