For The Men And The Women Who Love Them
This is my second go on the #500words task. This time I want to talk about some podcast episodes I’ve heard last night and about a book I should’ve presented already.
A while ago “The Sexy Librarian” Rose Caraway was kind enough to send me a copy of her anthology “For The Men And The Women Who Love Them”. Now, if you’re familiar with Rose you’ll know that she stands for high class erotica, is a writer, editor, audiobook narrator, and runs two amazing podcasts: The Sexy Librarian’s Erotica Blog-Cast and The Kiss Me Quick’s Erotica Podcast (I highly recommend to check them out). And here’s also my first critique on the book: I’m missing Rose’s fantastic way to narrate erotic stories (Did I mention I recommend to tune into her podcasts?).
On 284 pages “For The Men And The Women Who Love Them” presents 25 stories by 25 different authors including my favourite writers like Jade A. Waters, Tamsin Flowers and Rachel Kramer Bussel, to name just a few.
The amazing erotic storytelling by these 25 authors is bold and direct, covering almost every style and taste – so no matter if you prefer fantastic or outlandish or literary, you’ll find a story matching your mood.
„Instinctively I struggled and pulled against the rope, but Ray Jackson was an expert at reeling in calves at least two or three times my weight.“
From „Rope Burn“ by Tamsin Flowers
Let’s dive into the stories a bit. There’s “Breasted” by Landon Dixon, a straightforward story about, of course, a lover of big boobs. It’s rather straightforward, until it surprises the reader with a sudden twist. Or “The Hitchhiker” by Rachel de Vine, a story taking you on a very entertaining trip from the UK to France. Both stories are also available in Rose’s The Kiss Me Quick’s Erotica Podcast and are well worth to listen to. There are stories helping you in almost every situation be it you’re a Rodeo Queen, hitting the road, wonder about unexpected anal experiences, need inspiration on how to make watching baseball far more interesting or wonder what might happen on a taxi ride to Jersey.
„I came home Friday to find my wife in the foyer wearing nothing but a turquoise lace bra and a matching eight-inch strap-on.“
From „Take It Like A Man“ by Dahlia Lovejoy
If you’re into crime stories with a more saucy edge to it you might like „Undercover Cop“ by Erin Pim. It’s one of my favourites: The police find a very special way to distract a guy who took hostages in a bank and the story turns out to be very sexy as well as a good crime story. Or you might enjoy the more classic idea of ghosts in an abandoned house in Winter Blair’s „Lonely Spirits“, a story almost made to be read in front of the fireplace on a winter’s night. Whatever might suit you, you’ll find it in these 25 adventurous erotic short stories.
