Reviewed by: MidnightB on 2nd June 2012 9:07PM

This was a fun light hearted read of 8 mini stories from some brilliant authors edited by Elizabeth Coldwell an established author herself. I actually blasted through this book in 1 sitting, reading all 8 stories in 1 go. I do personally prefer to get completely immersed into a full novel to get to know the characters and more background; but I was pleasantly surprised as it has some popular authors with a few I haven't heard of before so it was nice to have taster of their writing.
The book contains some light BDSM, oral and masturbation, fantasy play; plus an unusual toy story and I dont mean Buzz Lightyear and a very sexy voyeurism story.

The variety of plots and creative writing of some of our best authors meant it is a great intro into reading erotica if you are new to reading this genre of books. But for the more hardened erotica fan you may want it a little hotter under the collar.

I thoroughly enjoyed the stories from our popular authors "Cardboard" by Kay Jaybee was my favorite being super sexy and so was "Exemplary employee" by Charlotte Stein and Sommer Marsden pulled something quite different out the bag with her "Your my toy". I also really enjoyed "Date night" by Ariel Graham what a brilliant sexy idea involving voyeurism and Tabitha Rayne's "Retail seduction" is super sexy punishment.
But if you are a fan of any of these authors then definitely buy this book you wont be disappointed.
