"Move over Fifty Shades of Grey. This collection, edited by erotica veteran Rachel Kramer Bussel, will bring out your inner submissive without having to sift through the banal thoughts of Anastasia Steele." --Refinery 29 "You won't find any stereotypical submission stories in here. Each of the 22 entries is well thought out, beautifully realized and sexy as hell. From the BDSM novice to the seasoned practitioner, there truly is something for everyone and I couldn't recommend this book more! If sexy stories of female submission tickle your fancy, grab this book -- you won't be sorry!" --Secret Pleasures "A highly erotic collection of 22 stories of female submission, Serving Him is edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel and features a host of top class authors in the femsub genre. Forget 50 Shades of crap - this is so much better!" --Skin Two Magazine "If you liked 50 Shades of Grey, then you'll fall in lust with Rachel Kramer Bussel's even hotter BDSM books, like Serving Him and Please, Sir. Although she writes about female submissives, her protagonists legitimately crave and take pleasure in the sex they're having. What's hotter than that?" --Cosmopolitan "If you're at all interested in stories where the man dominates and the woman submits, you should get your hands on a copy of this anthology. I promise it won't disappoint!" --Thoughts of a Growing Sub "I highly recommend this collection of stories." --Lina Sacher "Serving Him contains 22 stories that feature a variety of kinks and desires that will be sure to satisfy anyone's lustful hunger." --Bitches n Prose "These books are always my escape from my real life into a fantastical one." --Tracey G "Once in a blue moon I'm able to carve out some time and nibble away at a book that catches my fancy. Serving Him: Sexy Stories of Submission, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel and published by Cleis Press, is one of those books." --Lucy Malone "What I really loved about Serving Him is that it allowed my mind to wander through the corridors of other people's dungeons and kinky lifestyles whilst going no further than my comfy reading chair. I mean what's not to love about that?" --Clitical "Finally some smart, sexy and authentic stories about submission. As a service and sexual submissive I found these stories to not only be erotic but thought provoking." --Kinky Cup of Tea "Women intrigued by the dominant/submissive dynamic -- think the movie Secretary or Ana and Christian's iron-clad contract in Fifty Shades -- this collection of short BDSM erotica stories will take your curiosity to the next level." --Lifestyle Mirror "This collection of short stories covers the full range of the male dom's brand of sensuality, from spanking and bondage to public sex and power exchange. The pages are filled with bossy hunks and obedient ladies." --Adult Video News "Bestselling eroticist Rachel Kramer Bussel and her coterie of contributors cover the full give and take of sensual sadism, from spanking and bondage to public sex and pushing boundaries everywhere from the bedroom to the boardroom." --Daily Loaf As true tops, the bossy hunks in these stories understand that erotic BDSM is about exulting in power that is freely yielded. Rachel and her coterie of contributors cover the full range of the male dom's brand of sensual sadism, from spanking and bondage to public sex and power exchange. --Erotica Readers and Writers Association "Stories of bondage, pain, roleplay, and more than a few good, hard spankings are littered throughout, with an overarching (and very queer) theme of the inherent power in submission." -- Sex Life Canada "The type of book that makes the reader say, 'I could see doing that!'" --Airen Wolf "If you are looking for sexy, real, and action packed short stores; this book is a must have." --Kink Etc. "Serving Him is one of the best Bussel-edited anthologies I've read." --Steve Isaak "The stories here cover the full range of sensuality connected to male dominance--spanking and bondage, public and private sex and power exchange. Gaining power only happens when it is yielded. The stories are kinky, fun and erotic. Many of these stories are quite intense and border between joy and fear--two very strong emotions. There are dungeon scenes and regular bedroom scenes--everything depends on the participants and the pleasure they gain. Everything to make a sexual experience more pleasurable is here--from toys to handcuffs. It is all about pleasure and enjoyment--the same feelings you will get from reading these stories." --Amos Lassen "The strength of this book lies in its diversity. The authors explore a broad spectrum of the erotic dance between the strong, seductive dominant male and the strong woman who thrives and blooms when she submits. The dance takes many forms in the twenty-two stories that the editor has carefully chosen for us. As a reader, you can tell this book was put together with care given the selection of well written stories with a variety of plots and kinks. There is something for every reader of erotica who enjoys D/s and BDSM as well as those who just enjoy very sexy tales. The excitement and intensity of the tales go from subtle and delicate to direct and strong, even a bit rough at times. I will add that if you have a significant other, whether dominant, submissive, curious, or in between, then this is a book you can share. Who knows? You may learn a new trick or two or find a little inspiration. Or you may just live vicariously as a voyeur through the adventures and trysts of the characters. You will find well planned scenes and quicker interactions. There will be spanking, ropes, bondage, showers and all forms of delicious games in this collection." --The Itinerant Librarian "What I love most about a well-constructed "sexy story" anthology is that there's theoretically something for everyone between the covers. No two stories should bare too much (if any) similarity, and the topics, characters, and events should push a plethora of boundaries. This little number, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel (a Cleis Press favorite), does measure up in these regards." -Lustful Literate
