Title: Smut In The City - Tales of Urban Passion
Genre: Erotic Anthology
Editors: Victoria Blisse & Lucy Felthouse
Her Secret Garden by Viva Jones
What a deliciously hot, sexy, lustful short story. The imagery was exquisite, the pace just perfect and I found myself flushed--breathing heavily in time with Ashley and Fox. The perfect read on a warm spring day.
Viva Jones is a writer to keep an eye on.
Verona by Geoff Chaucer
I had never thought that combing a fetish like Golden Showers and the Opera would work well together in a storyline--boy was I wrong. Never before have I read a story about GS that was not crass or overdone. This was just perfect.
Geoff Chaucer is certainly a deft hand at weaving a delightful erotic tale.
Lights Out by M.A. Stacie
Lights Out left me wanting more. M.A. Stacie was able to build the heat level up so well and keep it at its peak at the end, that it had me wanting to know what else would happen.
This would be a great novella if fleshed out more.
Saturday on a Tuesday by Giselle Renarde
What can I say, this turned out to be an exciting, breathless read. I won't give the story away except to say this reader wanted to feel everything that Liddy was feeling. The sex scene was very well written and evocative. The background story was insightful and paced well.
I would love to read more of Giselle's work. A name definitely to look for.
Glory Box by Cassandra Dean
It was heartwarming to read a story with my hometown in it as the backdrop. Mind you that seemed to slip away when the simplistic beauty of the music was described. I honestly thought that it couldn't get any better than that--I was dead wrong! Ms. Dean managed to make the sex scene one of where you were biting your lip, wondering what would happen next, feeling the intensity of the moment.
Well done Cassandra Dean, you have written a brilliant and eloquent short story.
The Conjurer by Tabitha Rayne
I found The Conjurer to not only be different in the fact that it is the first time I have read an erotic story that has a main character with a disability but the sensuality Tabitha Rayne gave to this character and her situation was mind blowing. Brilliant use of description had me wanting to know if Ms. Rayne had actually tried what she had written about to be able to describe in detail what was going on.
Within The Crumbling Walls by Lucy Lawless
I will admit that I am a fan of Lucy Lawless and that she has a remarkable way of not only making you feel like you are in a scene but also of making you feel like a voyeur as you read about the characters sexual exploits.
Loved this story but would like to learn more about this couples adventures.
Taking Care of Business by Lexi Bay
What a wonderful read this was. I felt like I was reading one of those old mobster stories. Lexi Bay managed to convey the lust and heated love that the main character felt with exquisite detail.
Mad Fer It In Manchester by Victoria Blisse
What a wonderfully light read. I loved the sharp way she wrote the dialogue between Lauren and Stuart. If only my years at having to attend lectures and workshops were as interesting as it ended up being for this couple, I would never have had a problem attending.
Job well done Ms. Blisse.
Love Of My Life by Wendi Zwaduk
This story had me close to tears. It would have been nice to have more of their back story though and perhaps for this section to not have been so quick. All in all though I did enjoy this immensely and would hope that Ms. Zwaduk will eventually release a more comprehensive story of Love Of My Life.
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
A Tale of Two Sisters by Toni Sands
My favorite combinations, sinful food and sex. I was actually upset to find I had come to the end of the story.
Definitely a story to take your time with, just like a very good meal.
Neighbors by Harper Bliss
I wasn't actually sure what to expect when I first started reading Neighbors but I was extremely surprised and extremely wet by the time I finished it.
Warning though, you might need to have a towel with you.
Underground Encounter by Tamsin Flowers
Ms. Flowers has a way of describing sexual tension that forces itself upon your own body. The story is sharp, flowing and very interactive. I found I was a bit disappointed when the story ended but I did have a huge grin on my face.
Definitely want to try the "Circle Challenge" for myself one day.
A Long Hot Summer by Sommer Marsden
Well what a wonderfully sweet and delicious way to finish this anthology. Ms. Marsden weaved her words in such a way that my mouse couldn't scroll fast enough to get to the next page. In other words reader, this is a page turner.
Life is Sweet and so is this book.
My overall thoughts.
Don't deny yourself a chance at a wonderful collection of stories that will have you smiling, giggling, sighing and wanting to experience for yourself all these unique and pleasurable situations.
