Sex in the City – London


“Variety’s the very spice of life, that gives it all flavour.”  So says the author William Cowper and so say I in regards to a recent read of “Sex in the City”.  This collection of 12 erotic stores is hot and packs a punch.  There is something for everyone; the stories cover everything from love to BDSM to raunchy sex to…well whatever you might think of really.

Book Review: Love on the Dark Side – Black Lace


Love on the Dark Side
Reviewed by Lucy Felthouse. Find her on Twitter and Facebook.

As a fan of Black Lace (RIP), erotica and the paranormal, Love on the Dark Side seemed like the perfect read to me. Published a few years back, it finally made its way to the top of my enormous to be read pile. Featuring esteemed authors such as Mathilde Madden, Olivia Knight, Kristina Lloyd, Madelynne Ellis, Janine Ashbless and Portia Da Costa, my expectations were high. Unfortunately, the book didn’t quite live up to it.

However, this was less to do with the authors and the writing, and more to do with the way the book was put together. Yes, all the stories were paranormal, but they were all pretty varying in scope; from vampires and werewolves to incubi, succubi and spirits of those who have passed on. I think within paranormal, people have their favourite sub-genres and therefore they’d rather read more on those particular subjects. I know I would. Of course, this is just my personal opinion, so if you’re a lover of all things supernatural, then go ahead and check out this book.

Real stand out stories in this book for me were Mathilde Madden’s What Witches Want and Madelynne Ellis’ Lust for Blood. However, this goes back to my previous comment about sub-genres. Madden’s story deals with werewolves, which I never really had a ‘thing’ for until I read her Silver Trilogy series of books, all of which were extremely sexy. Ellis’ story, as you may have guessed, is about vampires – and not only that, a bit of girl-guy-guy action. A winner all round, really.

Overall, a bit hit and miss – but it’s got a good enough quality of writing and top authors to make it worth reading if it’s your cup of tea. Check out my Book Depository link below to find the cheapest price – you won’t mind paying it.

ebook Review of Gay Love


Review by Carol Tierney

Gay Love is a collection of five short stories, each exploring a different aspect of male on male loving.

“Put a ring on it” is a sweet little story dealing with the transition from mates and football buddies to lovers. “Aduniad” describes a more established couple starting to develop a D/s dynamic. “Automatic Transmission” is an unusual tale of auto-fellatio and the bond it creates between two devotees of the skill. “Fisherman’s Friend” is a romantic tale of new love (and lust) growing out of heart break “One More Ride” quickly takes us from first glance to first fuck with a side order of gleaming chrome motorbike.

There’s something for everyone in this collection, whether you prefer slow paced romance or fast and filthy. My personal favourite was One More Ride, which captured that intoxicating mixture of excitement and fear that you only get at the start of a new relationship, but all the stories were well written and enjoyable to read.

eBook Review for the Adventures of Ambrose Horne by Chrissie Bentley


Review by Korben Rushe

This might be controversial, but for me, the best erotic fiction isn’t all about the sex. With no pun intended, it really should be about the full package. And that’s what Chrissie Bentley delivers in this collection of short stories which sway from the poignant to the ludicrously funny. And that package includes – rest assured – lots of hot Victorian action!

Set in the era already SO dominated by that other fictional detective, Ambrose Horne does a very good job at establishing himself as the sleuth who takes a refreshingly different approach to uncovering the truth – more often than not a horizontal one.

When I started reading this book, I worried that after the first few stories, the plots would grow a bit samey or contrived (as they did in that TV programme Rosemary and Thyme – after all, just how many murders can a couple of landscape gardeners unearth?!) but thankfully this is not the case here. In fact, not only has the author managed to create a charismatic hero (who has a Bond-esque way with the ladies) and some entertaining and testing plotlines, but she’s impressively highlighted a social truth: that almost everything in this life comes down to sex, greed or both.

I can’t wait to read the next two instalments of Ambrose Horne.

Author Interview with Primula Bond


Author Interview with Primula Bond

What was your childhood ambition?
Predictably enough, to be a famous writer with my novels displayed in the window of WH Smith.  I wrote my first novel when I was 8.
What was your first job?
Sitting in a modern art gallery off Regent Street handing out brochures and smiling sweetly at the punters.  Also handing round drinks at private views where I met various celebrities including Princess Margaret!  I regularly got propositioned by artists including a lovely Irish one called Clancy who succeeded in painting my portrait.  I wish I had it now – I was in my pre-Raphaelite prime at 18 years old!

eBook Review: Quick Kink Two by Kay Jaybee


Review by Dorla Moorehouse

Quick Kink Two is one of the most memorable erotica collections I have ever read. Kay Jaybee has created a book filled with stories that cover a range of different kinks, plots, characters, and scenarios. Each piece stands out as a compelling piece of erotic fiction, each one staying with the reader well after the book is finished

The reason Quick Kink Two is so powerful is because Jaybee’s stories are a mix of different fetish pieces. Some, like “The Bride Wore Rubber,” are hardcore. Others, like “Plus One” and “Snookered,” rely on traditional fetish themes but tell the stories in ways that are not boring are overdone. And finally, Jaybee writes fetish stories that do not rely on typical ideas, plots, or objects. “The Shirt” is the most memorable story in this eBook because of the way Jaybee turns a simple shirt into a fetish object. There are no whips, threesomes, or leather; this story pushed my preconceived notions of fetish erotica and turned me on at the same time.

Quick Kink Two is so good that I am hard-pressed to find anything negative to say about it. The only thing I would have done differently is space the “Cold” and “Heat” stories farther apart. Because the “Cold” protagonist does not have a name, and because it is so short, at first I believed that these two stories were companion pieces. It was a little frustrating to read “Heat” and not be sure whether or not these two stories were supposed to be tie into one another.  Other than that, however, I don’t find any flaws in this collection.

Quick Kink Two is a great read for anyone interested in kinky stories, but it’s diverse enough to appeal to readers who don’t normally read kink. While a few of the stories (namely “The Bride Wore Leather”) might be a little hardcore for someone more used to vanilla erotica, all in all Jaybee’s writing is accessible to a wide range of readers.

eBook review – Blank by Sommer Marsden


Reviewed by Andrea Nichol

Kyle is a man in pain.  The man he loved deeply has left him and as a result, his life has spiralled out of control, into drugs and prison.  “Blank” takes place after he gets out of prison, when he is trying to find himself again and alleviate the pain of being alone, having lost someone he loved completely.  He can only expel his pain by using men’s bodies to dull the agony – his new addiction, sex.  If he can only screw man after man the pain will slowly leave him and he will be himself again.  Part of the rebuilding of his life is to make a major change and he goes to work in Montana on a ranch, a perfect place to find both men, and hopefully, peace.

He works hard, plays hard and fucks hard, staying elusive from Tad, the ranch’s “numero uno”.  There’s something about Tad that is reminiscent of his lost love, Jason, and it would be disastrous to lose himself again.  It is only after Kyle has a bad encounter and allows himself to become vulnerable and open that he realises that the way to alleviate pain is to let go of the past and embrace possibility.  Not everyone will leave him; not everyone will hurt him.

Marsden writes a compelling story that touches on the vulnerability of Brokeback Mountain.  Interspersed between bouts of hot sex, Kyle’s struggle to become whole is very apparent.  As a character, Kyle is interesting, complicated and very human; the love interest, Tad is also complicated and diverse and the reader is left hoping they find each other.  An excellent read.

eBook Review – Restoration by Victoria Blisse


Reviewed by Andrea Nichol

Theresa is a professional restorer of antiques whose first solo job is to restore an ancient statue of Priapus, son of Aphrodite, the goddess of love.  His main physical characteristic is of course his phallus, which is usually depicted as enormous.  From the moment she sees the statue, Theresa is held in the grips of a helpless haze of lust.  It has been a while since she has had sex and that coupled with the raw sexuality of the statue has pushed her over into being mindlessly lustful.

At times, she is interrupted by her boss, Doctor Browning, who checks on her progress.  During the several months she is cleaning the statue of its moss and dirt, she is besieged by violent tremors of sexual frustration; she has a connection with Priapus that won’t be denied.  What she doesn’t know is that Doctor Browning is also caught in the same vortex of sexual need and is not only checking on her periodically, he is watching her interactions with the statue over time.  They finally are united in their lust and are able to connect physically with each other with Priapus as their inspiration.

Blisse has written a hot story that tugged at my own libido throughout.  The climax, no pun intended, is raw and sexually charged and while some may find it shocking, in fact it works for this situation and follows what must happen.  Priapus inspires both men and women to be in touch with their true selves and Theresa and Matt Browning dive into their truth and find bliss as a result.  “Restoration” is well worth reading.

Book Review: Random Acts of Lust reviewed by Madeline Elayne


Have you ever had one of those days when the whole of the universe seems to be telling you “why not?” When you notice the cute boy at the front desk checking out your legs and flashing you a smile that’s just a little bit too long, and you know that he would be yours for the asking? Or you think back on your school girl days and that moment when your best friend’s hand accidentally brushed against yours and you wondered what it would be like to explore each other further, but couldn’t bring yourself to even consider it?

Primula Bond’s Random Acts of Lust is all about visiting the fantasy of those “what if moments.” The women in these short works of literary escapism all decide to throw caution to the wind and indulge in those naughty sexual adventures that all women fantasize but most of us never do anything about.

Book Review: The Adventures of a London Call Boy by Cara Sutra


Review by Cara Sutra
This entertaining read details the hedonistic adventures of a young man in London who thoroughly enjoys sex. Deciding to combine his love of the sexual act with women and his lack of finances, he embarks upon a trail of saucy naughtiness which will leave you horny, empathising, giggling and breathless for the next encounter.
I did not think I would enjoy this book as much as I did; perhaps because of the reputation of gigolos and the like. Male prostitution is not only rare but still a novel taboo in our culture, for it to be tackled head on in this book shows a courage and a flair for the creative.
Our bed bouncing buccaneer may earn a living by giving sexual favours but there is an element of respect for the women he meets, a desire to at least sexually fulfil and please them. The women are rightfully given full and rounded characters, all aware of his role and purpose and instead of being desperate creatures they are instead voracious sexual beings, attractive, seductive.
In giving the main character a female ‘best friend’, the author very cleverly widens the book even further to a female audience. Perhaps without this side-kick element the book would have been better off on the males-only erotic fiction shelf.
The story is anecdotal yet pacy, exciting and raunchy all at once. The fly on the wall detail leaves you feeling positively voyeuristic, in simply the best way. In places you do wonder whether this really can all be pure fiction, as the narrative reads like an autobiography, keeping you even closer in touch with the character’s feelings and emotions through his journey.
For a red hot alternative to the traditional female led erotic fiction novels, you need look no further than Adventures of a London Call Boy. I thoroughly enjoyed it, much to my surprise, and I feel that it has great appeal to any man or woman seeking a saucy Summer read.
