Cum For Bigfoot
on April 21, 2014
I thought it was fitting for my inaugural review on this blog to be about this book for this is the book that got me interested in reading erotica.
Wade does an excellent job of "easing" her readers into her story by starting off with toned-down raunchy. However, one does not have to read far before things start to get really intense with Bigfoot sex scenes. It seems as though Wade does her best to write the most twisted scenarios possible, shamelessly (as she says) challenging social barriers in order to arouse her readers. Wade uses a bold writing style, and does not mince anything. But not only that, Wade has created a well thought out story woven into this erotica. She has come up with some of her own Bigfoot folklore to serve the purpose of her story, has thoughtfully developed her characters, and sends these characters on a true adventure. I am genuinely impressed with the planning that must have gone into creating this series.
What makes this story especially unique is that, as described, it is a "monster sex series." Yes, this is Bigfoot having sex with 18 year old girls. This scenario gives Wade the freedom to really let her imagination run free with unique possibilities. As such, readers are in for an enticing ride.
Some may say that this story "glorifies rape." While I can see why some may say this, I think it is important to keep in mind that this is erotica and is intended for a sole purpose: to act as an arousal. This type of story is not intended to be analyzed for anything beyond what it is. So what can I say? Get your panties out of a twist (literally and figuratively) and allow yourself to enjoy some of the best erotica out there.
A Feather's Kiss (La Plus Délicate de Tortures)
on April 21, 2014
Burke is a master of writing detail. She does not gloss over any part. Yet, she does so in such a way to bring you into her stories. Speaking of which, I am impressed with the variety of circumstances she has imagined for her various protagonists. Burke structures her stories such that her characters unwittingly get themselves into precarious circumstances, and then people take advantage of them. However, within this structure, she has come up with a large variety such that no two stories are alike. Additionally, Burke spends a decent amount of time creating her settings and her characters before delving into her sex scenes, adding an additional layer of interest in her stories that I don't see in much erotica. Given that these short stories revolve around foot fetishes, if you're someone who is not into feet, then this book would probably not be for you. But if you're curious to learn more about this fetish, then this would be an excellent source! Also, if you find feet erotic to any degree, then you will find this an arousing read!
Crawling to Paris
on May 22, 2014
I love the title of this erotica for it perfectly encapsulates the story. Paris has a plan, which only truly becomes clear to the reader right at the end. While I'm not usually the biggest fan of angry sex, Eames still managed to create an enticing scene that turned me on. I think what I found attractive about this writing was the dominance of the female character - a theme I don't see terribly often in erotica.
Heat in Vegas
on May 22, 2014
Sex between strangers is a great recipe for steamy erotica. With that being said, I most liked how McFarland wrapped up this story with a scene of dominance and betrayal. McFarland weaves a logical story which more than explains the motivations behind all these characters. The slut in me wishes that when my ex put me in Nikki's shoes that I had responded with the same ferocity. This free download will act as a teaser, leaving you wanting more.
Executive Pleasures: Volume I
on May 22, 2014
In less than 6,000 words Jill provides a raunchy story with no less than three sex scenes! She more than effectively encapsulates how enticing sex toys are and provides an excellent argument for why it's beneficial to remain open-minded regarding ways to be creative in bed. May this story also serve as a reminder to the benefits of setting aside your work life to indulge in your personal life. I'm sure I'm not the only one who needed this reminder at one time or another. Another aspect that I enjoyed about this short was the juxtaposition between how we present ourselves in our work vs. private lives. It was really arousing to see how quickly this couple shifted from being executives to being lovers. I would have liked to see more of this story told in present tense, but I was easily able to overlook this detail and find arousal from this story.

Gildford does not waste any time jumping into her sex scene, starting this story already in the heat of things. I have to admit that I am a big sucker for BDSM and also for lesbian erotica. By putting the two together, Guildford has created a particularly enticing story! With the nature of this being lesbian erotica, I appreciated how Guildford clearly knew how to pleasure woman as well as what women want. She was clearly able to gracefully transition between both roles: the giver and the receiver. In less than 3,000 words Guildford creates a short sexy scene that will harbor arousal.
A Cruel Lesson
on June 16, 2014
Tara has done it once again with A Cruel Lesson - providing me with the unexpected! In hindsight, the path this segment of the trilogy took made perfect sense, but I did not see it coming. Tara clearly loves to keep her stories full of surprise, keeping her readers engaged and wanting to know more. I find that often times the second book in a trilogy largely acts as a bridge between the first and last books. However, I would say that A Cruel Lesson does not fall into this trap. It is a solid story on its own, and has left me very intrigued to find out how Tara is going to wrap up her series.
Triangulum Stain -- Attack of the Replicating Alien Dildos
on July 30, 2014
This erotica has a good sense of humor, enhanced by Moctezuma's rugged writing style! We all know that men have two heads - one above the waist and one below the waist. What would happen if the head below the waist did all of the thinking? Or if the one above the waist was irrelevant? During Triangulum Stain we get to find out! This may be just about one of the only times when a man will cower from a horny woman.
Moctezuma gives his readers a full view of the alien attack by weaving multiple story lines together. He also varies up this short by providing his readers with important information via a couple of different formats. Additionally, I could see Moctezuma's talent with poetry shine through due to the graceful pros within this book.
With all this being said, this is simply a well-written, humorous erotic story, intended for our entertainment!
Love Out Of Lust - Part One
on Oct. 16, 2014
Given that Daryl and Marisol have known each other as family friends for so long, this erotica is just about the closest it gets to incest without it being incest... and I love the taboo!! This erotic short was just long enough to leave me aroused without making me feel cheated out of the story and the details. It is so common for me to see cliff hangers within the erotic genre that I've come to expect them. However, the cliff hanger in Love Out Of Lust fit seamlessly into the progression of the story and truly left me curious to know what happens next.

In Zoe: Spanked Bree does an excellent job of catching the post-wedding glow of a newly married couple. Georgia and Zoe have a special spark and express their love selflessly and with ease. But that’s not to say this is a “soft” erotic story! Far from it, these two girls like their BDSM, and they enjoy pushing their limits. In some regard, this is intimate and loving in itself, for it’s clear these two women completely trust each other. This intimate aspect of BDSM is often lost in the erotic stories I read, but was particularly striking (no pun intended!) in Zoe: Spanked.
