5.0 out of 5 stars Sixteen sizzling stories of passion and romance. 7 Mar 2014
By MsRomanticReads - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
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 by Anja Vikarma, A Singer Who Doesn't Sing by Jeanette Grey, and More Light by Laila Blake. Other great stories were Over a Barrel by Tamsin Flowers, Stay with Me by Crystal Jordan, The Shortest Day by Nikki Magennis, and Going It Alone by Lucy Felthouse.

Overall I really enjoyed this anthology. I didn't dislike any of the stories, and I'll be reaching for my favorite shorts again in the future.

The Shortest Day by Nikki Magennis

A mother-in-law with dementia, kids and everyday life in general has taken a toll on Lucy and John's marriage. Their sex life is reduced to stolen moments, half unconscious during sleep. What will it take for them to put their marriage first, or is it too late to turn things around? - It was a heartwarming story. I think people can relate to finding themselves in a similar situation. John was a sweetheart; he voiced his concerns but he wasn't accusatory. I thought he handled Lucy's insecurities well and went ahead and took action.

A Competitive Marriage by Victoria Blisse

All is fair in love and video gaming. A married couple gets down and dirty as they try to outdance one another. - Short and funny with a satisfying ending for both of them.

Professional, Knowledgeable and Very Thorough by Annabeth Leong

A female mechanic allows herself to be seduced by a client only to find out that he could ruin her business. Was her trust misplaced, and can she forgive him his duplicity? - Short, sexy, and I liked the bit of drama thrown in.

Rules by Emerald

A woman finds a photo reminding her of her rebellious youth. Her husband liked the goth look she once sported, which leads her to try and recapture those wild times. Purple hair and all. Role-playing fun ensues.- I liked the husband's reaction and that he wasn't ashamed to indulge in some fun regardless of appearances in public.

More Light by Laila Blake

Lights, camera, passion. Two friends discover more than just their mutual passion for photography. - Oh my, this was sensual. I loved the scene setting as these two friends and colleagues turned their cameras on each other. The writing felt artistically beautiful to me.

Stay with Me by Crystal Jordan

Cord Preston can't resist his boss any longer. The beautiful widow has gotten under his skin. She doesn't do flings, but will Cord consider putting down roots for her? - Short and romantic with a side of commanding male in the bedroom.

A Singer Who Doesn't Sing by Jeanette Grey

A writer picks up a musician in a bar. What should have been a one night stand turns into more when their passion sparks the familiar comfort of artistic delights. - I loved this story. It was so sensual and descriptive. I also enjoyed the glimpses into their past, present and future.

Show Me by D.R. Slaten

Dani's boyfriend wants to watch her pleasure herself. - Good, short and sexy story. Her embarrassment afterward was rather amusing.

A Perfect Place by Catherine Paulssen

A location manager gets swept up in the majesty of an old Hungarian castle and the handsome landowner. - For a story involving strangers, it was a little quick, but as a fantasy it was quite good.

Something New by Giselle Renarde

Kim has moved back in with her parents to help her fiance save money for a down payment on their first home. Elson can't wait to get his hands on her again. The little kink it puts in their sex does wonders for their enthusiasm. - Short and hot.

Over a Barrel by Tamsin Flowers

Bonnie can't go to work with both arms in casts. She thinks her colleague, Brian, will use the opportunity to take her job away from her. When he shows up at her house, he gives her other things to think about. - Very enjoyable. I liked the little puffs of humor that sprung up here and there. I'm not sure how easy or sexy it is to have sex when both arms are in thick plaster casts, but the imagery was amusing.

Tuscarora by Anja Vikarma

Jane leaves her abusive husband after inheriting some land from a relative. The freedom and peace aren't the only appealing things about her new surroundings. - Hands down, my favorite story in this anthology. It was a little fast, but it was so romantic and sweet. Their love scene was really sexy.

Big Bully by A.M. Hartnett

A bodyguard falls for his rebellious charge, but first she needs a good spanking for her bad behavior. - I like a gruff, protective alpha male who falls for a soft female, but the heroine acted a little too childish for my liking. Despite my dislike for her, it was still a hot read.

Going It Alone by Lucy Felthouse

Two dog lovers who meet in a park finally have their first date. - Short and to the point. It started out sweet and got hotter.

Closing the Deal by Kelly Maher

After a one night stand with her colleague Paul, Julia ran out on him the next morning. When he finally catches up with her at a conference, he has no intention of letting her get away again so easily. - I liked that Julia didn't make it all that difficult for Paul to catch her.

Whatever It Takes by Kristina Wright

Amidst the chaos of shuttling kids to and from activities and everyday life in general, David and his wife have no problem igniting their spark. - I loved the intensity between these two which made it different from the other married couples in this anthology.

4.0 out of 5 stars BEST EROTIC ROMANCE 2014~ 26 Mar 2014
By Coffee Time Romance - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The Shortest Day

Lucy feels like the world is conspiring against her, making even the smallest effort seem insurmountable.

Between the children, an ailing mother-in-law, work, and life in general John barely remembers what intimacy feels like.

So much is getting in the way of their marriage right now Lucy fears John may finally have had enough. They are in desperate need of uninterrupted alone time, which John is going to make happen one way or another.

Lucy and John are so close to cracking under the pressure it seems like this could be it. In a way it is.

A Competitive Marriage

The weather outside is getting in the way of Mandy’s workout schedule, so she takes her husband’s suggestion.

A little quiet time with his computer will have to wait, now that Ian has a bet to win.

Turning anything into a competition is an easy way for Mandy to persuade Ian to do just about anything. This game however will have no loser.

A couple who plays together stays together, and I love Mandy’s sneaky side when it comes to getting her husband’s attention.

Professional, Knowledgeable and Very Thorough

Under the hood of a car is where Tamara Owens is the most comfortable, that is why she leaves dealing with the customers to Lucy.

When Randal Dean takes his car in to be serviced, he wants to know exactly what is happening and why.

Explaining in detail the ins and outs of a timing belt to Randal is not something Tamara would ever imagine being sexy, but with him it is. The thought of getting him dirty is even more so.

A woman, who knows her stuff, especially when most would consider it a man’s world, is a powerful attraction. It is a really good thing that Randal feels it too.


Going through a box of old pictures reawakens feelings in Joyce she thought long gone.

Pete loves seeing the rebellion in his wife at eighteen. He just has no idea that his reaction helps resurrect that inner teenager.

Once she finishes the final touches, and looks in the mirror, Joyce feels transformed. Her husband apparently feels the same, and the night is going to be one they never forget.

I absolutely love Pete’s reaction to his wife’s transformation, even more, I find it seriously sexy that he is not ashamed to show his feeling for her to anyone looking.

More Light

There is something about the forgotten decaying building that calls to her.

The way she moves and works ignites George’s passion.

They work together so often she is almost immune to George. When George changes the scene, her so called immunity flies out the window.

Feelings are taken for granted as she and George work so close for so long. It only takes one suggestion for all of those feelings to explode into reality.

Stay With Me

Watching him work is almost torture for Jamie, but as his boss there is no way she will ever make a move on him.

For so long Cord Preston keeps his feelings to himself. Tonight changes all of that.

Losing Travis was the hardest thing Jamie ever went through, yet her feelings for Cord are not going away. She should not get involved with an employee, especially one who will be moving on, Cord however gives her little choice.

Cord does not take no for an answer, and the result is exquisite.

A Singer Who Doesn’t Sing

When they meet she is sure it will be a one night thing. She could not be more wrong.

What he sees in her, he sees in himself, and it makes him want her all the more.

Their night together is something she will not forget. What surprises her most is that he is still here.

Two broken souls come together, creating an explosion of feeling and passion.

Show Me

What he asks of her is so far outside of her comfort zone Dani is not at all sure she can comply.

He knows her better than she knows herself.

She can do this. He knows it, and it will be extraordinary when it happens.

Going beyond your limits is scary, but it can also be unbelievably exciting.

A Perfect Place

Finding the right locale is Julie Scott’s job. One in which she is very adept.

The castle is far beyond its glory days, yet Benedek Illésházy hopes it is exactly what she needs.

Everything about this place feels right to Julie, including Ben. They may be newly acquainted, but there is definitely something she cannot ignore.

Julie and Ben are quiet, contemplative, and absolutely combustible!

Something New

Coming up with ideas is getting harder and harder for Kim.

He misses her so much Elson is just about ready to do anything to be with her.

Every time they talk Elson wants Kim to think of something kinky. It is not always easy, but with his encouragement, they always seem to come up with something.

Distance may make the heart grow fonder, for Kim and Elson however, it also makes the sex that much hotter.

Over a Barrel

Having one broken wrist is hard enough. Sadly Bonnie Bryant is dealing with two.

Jason Haynes knows how hard this must be for Bonnie, and he wants to help any way he can.

It is almost impossible for Bonnie to see anything good in her predicament, especially with Jason. His help and compassion take her by surprise, yet it seems that is not the only thing he stuns her with.

Shoving down her fear and jealousy gives Bonnie the opportunity to allow a whole host of other feelings to awaken, and it is incredibly sexy to see that Jason feels the same.


Upstate New York has become a haven for Jane Harmony since leaving an abusive marriage.

Seeing her sitting on that rock singing, Beau Bradford is entranced.

The tranquility and peace that Jane feels in this place is incredible, as is her new neighbor. Beau does not want to let this opportunity pass, and the coming storm makes it even more incredible.

The passion building between Jane and Beau is reflected in the impending storm. Every beat of the wind and drum of rain reflects the passion happening inside the camper.

Big Bully

Charlotte enjoys the feeling of freedom that alcohol gives her, even when it gets her in trouble.

Dealing with a spoiled young woman with way too much money and time on her hands is Teal’s job. Some days he wishes it were not.

No one pushes Charlotte’s buttons like Teal. He makes her feel like a real person, and now he is making her feel like a real woman.

Privilege comes at a price, so it is a good thing Charlotte has a man like Teal to bring her back to reality.

Going It Alone

A chance encounter turns into some serious fantasizing for Debbie, yet she is extremely nervous now that it is an actual date.

The dogs may have broken the ice. Jake, however, is more than ready for the next step.

Having a cup of tea with Jake should not be making Debbie this anxious. When he takes her home, she is almost beside herself with excitement.

The most innocent of encounters can turn into a lifetime of passion if you are lucky, and it seems like Debbie and Jake may just be.

Closing the Deal

Julia will do anything to stay on top, even if that means hiding out from a man who does crazy things to her heart.

Taking a chance, Paul confronts the woman who completely absorbs his thoughts.

It is hard enough to be taken seriously as a woman, even though Julia is very good at her job. What she does not want is to let her heart overrule her head, but with Paul that is exactly what she fears will happen.

Some days you just have to give your head a rest, which in Julia’s case, turns out to be exactly what she needs.

Whatever It Takes

With four kids, whose dance and baseball practice have her running non-stop, it is no wonder she has trouble remembering the last time she was alone with her husband.

It is easy to let the stress become overwhelming, but David knows just the right words to realign their priorities.

David’s voice is all it takes to have her aching all over. He can take her from mom to oh-my with nothing more than a few very deliberately laced commands.

I love how David makes his wife feel like she is the only woman in the world, even when life around them is spinning uncontrollably.

Getting through a long cold winter gets a whole lot easier when you have a collection like this to read. The couples in these stories come from all walks of life, which I feel makes it very easy to slip into their heads and their hearts. With such incredibly compelling stories, I am sure you will want to make note of several of these authors. Reading works from authors I already adore is fantastic, but finding others, like those in this anthology, are why I love these so much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steamy & Sweet 4 April 2014
By Jill - Published on
This collection features stories from all different stages of relationships old and new, and people who are young and old. All have an emotional feel to them, and all of course have their share of steamy, passionate lust. This anthology is a great mix of stories that are good for anyone who likes their erotica to be more emotional and more romantic than most. If you like steamy sex scenes and believe in love, than give this book a read. Thank you to both Cleis Press and editor/author Kristina Wright for my copy of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 31 Mar 2014
By QuixoticOrchid - Published on
Best Erotic Romance 2014 is the kind of book that makes you want to lay back on a big bed full of soft pillows, nibble on chocolate, and have your lover read it to you in his best come-hither voice. I've read the other two in the series, and this one is even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every one of the sixteen stories in this book is worth your time 23 Jun 2014
By Night Owl Reviews - Published on
One of the things Cleis Press does best is their yearly anthologies of short erotic stories, usually pegged to a specific theme or conceit. So with Best Erotic Romance 2014, I knew there would be some wonderful sexy times between couples who truly love each other, and that’s exactly what I found.

Every one of the sixteen stories in this book is worth your time, but as with any collection, some might appeal to some readers more than others. For me, the one I loved the most hit me right where I live, but your experience might vary.

The Shortest Day by Nikki Magennis is about a couple who are on the ragged edge of keeping their marriage and love afloat in the midst of daily chaos. With a house full of kids and an elderly parent with dementia, the only moments John and Lucy find for each other is when they’re actually both sound asleep in bed, in what can only be described as some variation of “sleep sex.” But being able to experience the joy of each other’s bodies while fully conscious hasn’t happened for a very long time. When one last straw finally snaps them both out of passivity, John instantly takes charge of the situation, with a solution that seems simple, but had apparently been out of their reach before now. This story had me in tears before the second page, and I was completely riveted at the unveiling of the story’s outcome, even as I cried all the way to its perfect ending.

That’s just the first story in Best Erotic Romance 2014. There are fifteen more there that are nearly as good, and I highly recommend you read each and every one of them.
