About as erotic as a used condom!
on 5 February 2013
Buyers beware - this book is not written by Sommer Marsden, it is edited by her, only 2 of the 13 stories are actually written by her. The standard of writing in this collection varies widely but much of it is very poor, bordering on dreadful. The stories all seem to follow the same pattern and after a short set-up they plunge into rampant sex/mild SM/light bondage with plenty of Anglo-Saxon vernacular to describe the action. It's rather like watching a badly made blue movie where the storyline is "Boy meets girl, boy screws girl" or a variation on that theme and where everything looks contrived and faked and not in the least erotic.
If you like in-your-face written pornography and aren't too fussed about style this is for you, if you prefer something a bit more subtle, which to me is what erotic implies, save your money and buy something by Anais Nin.
