Best Lesbian Erotica 2014 may not be the best lesbian anthology I've read, but there's something about it that makes it a bit more unique than most. Sure, some of the stories completely missed the mark for me, not because they were badly written or because the stories were bad, but because I didn't care for the writing style of the author or like the premise of the story (or lack thereof). It's just a personal preference thing. There's no such thing as an anthology where all the stories hit the right spots for the reader; Best Lesbian Erotica 2014 is no exception. But overall, every story in this collection brought something refreshing on the Best Lesbian Erotica table. There's just so much variety in this collection. Many of the stories star female characters that are smart, witty, sexy, fun, ballsy, crazy, and pretty cool. The sex was pretty well-drawn, steamy, and exciting, and yes, very vivid, so much so that you feel as if you're actually in the moment, being that fly on the wall watching these fictional characters in action. What I loved the most about this anthology was how a lot of the stories were lush with wonderful plots/story-lines and characterization. Even if the sex scenes were taken out, there's still an amazing story there. The sex is just that icing on the cake, or the (butch) cupcakes, I should say. Best Lesbian Erotica 2014, despite its misses and shortcomings, is the icing and the cake; it's really that scrumptious, and in many cases, quite addictive.
