Editor Tyler opens her intro with three lines of song lyrics specifically evoking "love," then admits in the 2nd paragraph that "amour" is a "vague theme." Okay, that makes "amour" for her a synonym for love. Okay, by me, pretty much. I've always thought of "amour" as a deeply sensual one-on-one relationship stoked by equal parts infatuation and love, and plenty of lust. My amour is highly romantic, very long on physical setting, texture and anticipation, reveling in every single aspect of the relationship, and of being in love. It's candles, beaches, dark bedrooms and rich linens, lingerie and flowers, crimson lipstick and tweed suits, all that stuff and a lot more. Amour is the entire package, the enjoyment of bitter-cold winter nights, thrilling in the downpour, the smell of the sea, all because of that mutually recognized and treasured attraction and requited love, its pervasiveness and its deeply realized effect on both parties.

But just to be sure, I looked up "amour" to find that its primary definition is an illicit or secret love affair or sexual relationship. So, boys and girls, "amour" can be love, but not necessarily.

It's not clear which amour Tyler is capturing in this book. If you're coming at the book from the notion of romantic love, this little collection (12 stories in 129 pages, in a 5" x 7" package) will kind of get you there. If you're focused on the illicit sexual relationship, you'll probably get more out of it.

That is not to say the content is bad here, not so. It's just that the theme is tough to nail down, and you should have the right expectations coming in. The stories are varied, mostly man-woman, although you do get a few woman-woman and one man-man.

This series of books looked like a fun and playful read, and that's basically what I got out of them. "A is for Amour" is a collection of short stories focused on the realms of passion. Each story is different and should speak to a wide spectrum of readers. In terms of intensity I don't think any of the stories really go very extreme, but stay more on the "softer" side of things, if that makes any sense. This is sort of what one would expect from a book titled "A is for Amour".

It's an extremely quick read though. I think I managed to read everything in about an afternoon. The one quibble I have with it is the price. I'm still up in the air as to whether it really warranted the ten dollars I spent. Granted there were multiple writers involved and I enjoyed the stories, but at only 132 pages, I feel I get a lot more bang for my buck (no pun intended) out of a novel for 8 dollars.

I would say only pick this up if it really intrigues you. I don't think many readers would be overly disappointed with it, regardless of their passion, but if you think you'd get more out of a novel, that's where I'd go first.

I bought this book when I saw that a favorite author had a story included - All about Us by Radclyffe. It's a fabulous and erotic story not to be missed.

Some stories will appeal immensely while others may not be your cup of tea. All are well written. At 132 pages, and reading a couple stories a day, the work week will pass quickly.
