Best Women's Erotica of the Year Volume 2

This second volume of erotic short stories written by women is an interesting collection that ranges from erotic romance to erotic horror, mainly with a D/s or bondage-centric themes.  The quality of the content varies quite widely; so while the book contains twenty-one stories, I’ve selected the ...

Willing Victim: Remastered

Kink alert! Willing Victim is definitely not a book for everyone, but if you’re interested in a gritty, kinky book with a heart, it’s a great read. I was excited to hear that Cara McKenna had regained the publishing rights to some of her older books and would be releasing re-vamped eBooks of eac ...

Downtown Devil

I had really mixed feelings about the first book in the Sins in the City series, Crosstown Crush, but I am happy to report that I loved this second installment. Like its predecessor, Downtown Devil is about a woman and two men engaging in a ménage when real feelings start to intrude on the fantasy. ...

Carnal Devices

Carnal Devices is short and to the point. A majority of the novella’s not quite 80 pages were dedicated to sex, but the author managed to squeeze in enough character development to intrigue me. India is a prostitute at a brothel, but she’s still new and hasn’t taken to the pr ...

The Siren

There are some books I recommend because they charm me and I absolutely adored every moment of reading them. However, "endearing" is not an apt word to describe The Siren because while some portions of the story were very moving, other parts will likely make readers extremely uncomfortable or even a ...

Heavy Issues

I’m no expert, since I only dip into the genre now and again, but it seems to me the old saying, “You’ve come a long way, baby!” definitely applies to today’s erotica. The erotica of the past was really light on storyline, developed characters, and pretty much everything but sex, sex, sex. ...

My Lady's Pleasure

In AAR’s early days, we used to talk a lot about “the bedroom door” - and whether it was open or closed. In My Lady’s Pleasure, it’s waaaay open. In fact, everyone’s bedroom (and barn, and study, and...) door is open. This book is a bit like spying on your neighbors - assuming your neigh ...

Strangers in the Night

Strangers in the Night is the second erotica short in Walker’s Loving on the Edge trilogy, but it completely stands alone. Investigative journalist Ben O’Neil is on his way to research an anonymous tip when his car breaks down. Lucky for him, Patrice Reynaud happens by and off ...

The Gift

I almost didn’t read this erotic short because the blurb hints that the jealousy aspect may cause major drama, and I wasn’t interested in that. But I finally decided to give it a go, and what I discovered is one of the best Spice Briefs I’ve had the pleasure to read. After 10 ...

Kiss It Better

Kiss It Better is such an understatement for this book. Kiss it better? More like suck, rub, squeeze or generally irritate it better. This book isn’t erotica; it’s just porn without plot. Not only is there no plot, but the author kept hinting at a larger conflict, which made me kind of intereste ...
