—Good for Her

"This book is important. It fills a gap not only on the bookshelves, but in our discussions about relationships and how intimacy changes across our life spans. This is a key guide to long-term couples who’ve weathered storms together, who’ve built their lives together, who’ve loved and lusted together and intend to for the rest of their lives."
—Geeky Nymph

"[Kristina Wright's] mix of candor and the amazing love of her partner shines through in her book as a great guide, a great standard, and a really great love story!"
—Airen Wolf Reviews

"The Joy of Sex with stories instead of illustrations."
—Lady Smut

"Through positivity and encouragement, the book tries to help readers become members of that invisible species in our culture: the sexually satisfied married couple."
—Em & Lo

"And the fantasies - woohoo! What couple wouldn't love one of the stories in here?"
—Bring Back Desire

Erotic Trade Only

"With two toddlers and twenty years of marriage, Kristina Wright has put together one of the most innovative guides that I’ve ever read. Sharing her hands-on advice with steam tales that inspire you to enact your own erotic adventures, Bedded Bliss is a simple yet extremely helpful guide for all couples; no matter how many years you’ve been together."
Kink Etc.

"The Joyce Carol Oats of erotica."
—Lady Cheeky

"Half-roadmap, half-inspiration, combining advice on keeping passion alive in marriage with erotica."
—Valerie Alexander

"Kristina combines tried-and-true advice linked with genuine romantic stories that are designed to inspire and entice long-term monogamous couples. With two toddlers and a red-hot marriage, plus a heap of erotic stories written and edited (she’s the editor of the Best Erotic Romance series), you can bet that Kristina knows what she’s talking about."
Lady Laid Bare

"The book seems to educate without it feeling like hard work. It's not a bland self-help guide nor is it merely a collection of erotic fiction. It's a fusion of the two resulting in a helpful yet fun and light read."
Sex Toy Sofa

"Each (story) had something important to teach. The last thing to strike me was how deliciously wicked, sensual and sweet, full of love and lust, each story was. Hot, as only good sex can be and romantic, as only true love can be. Wright accomplished her goal. This work encourages the reader to be brave, to trust, to explore and to find the lust in the love of their marriage."
Threading Thoughts

"Bedded Bliss is going into my 'hope chest' for when Prince Charming finally pulls up to a gas station and asks for directions to my apartment. I loved this book. Like no relationship book I’ve ever read."
Quixotic Orchid

"Yes, this is erotica but it not only entertains and raises our temperatures, it educates and even encourages us to try new things."
Reviews by Amos Lassen

"Bedded Bliss entertains, educates and encourages couples to remember the reasons they fell in love and lust—and reminds them of all the reasons to stay there, lustfully ever after!"
Erotica Readers And Writers Association

"Top 10 most provocative books."
The Daily Loaf

"With its mix of memoir, advice and erotica, Bedded Bliss serves up ways to keep love, romance and sex alive in the long-term. Kristina Wright knows of what she writes. All couples will learn something from this honest, inspiring book."
–Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor, Only You: Erotic Romance for Women

"There are plenty of books about how to create great relationships, but what happens when you've built one? There aren't many guides to help long-term couples create hot, passionate connection. In Bedded Bliss, Kristina Wright offers brief but powerful tips, followed by super sexy erotic stories that show you just how hot being in an LTR can be. Unlike a lot of erotic fiction, these tales don't hide from the questions and concerns that real people have. Instead, they show how couples can respond to whatever life brings them and still have a great time in bed. And the suggestions for overcoming your hurdles and connecting with your partner are just right!"
–Charlie Glickman, PhD, author of The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure

"Bedded Bliss is an important and delightful book with many great insights into the nature of long-term love accompanied by stories that combine sexual heat and emotional intimacy in ways that are often interesting and surprising. The stories and anecdotes are sure to fuel your erotic imagination, even if you are in a newer relationship."
–Mark A. MIchaels and Patricia Johnson, authors of Great Sex Made Simple

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read for couples October 11, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Have you ever wondered what happens behind closed bedroom doors of happy couples? Are you shy about sharing a fantasy with your partner? Need ideas and want to explore? Then this beautifully written book is for you, just as it was for me. It was so nice to read about couples of varying ages, happy and sexy and still going strong. I took the authors advice and read the erotic fiction out loud to my husband, it was so much fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ebbs and flows November 26, 2013
I was handed Bedded Bliss by a friend. It's far from what I might typical read, as I've never read erotica, so I felt a bit skeptical. But if nothing else, I'm supportive and open-minded, so I sat it on my bookcase. One day, having a few minutes to burn, I thumbed through and read the introduction, written by Kristina Wright. I found her writing to be honest, true, and at times, very poetic. I read all of her work first. An hour later, I realized I had lost track of time, felt a little flush, and had a deep refreshed rush of love and desire for my wife. So I sat the book down and went to share with her...

Marriage is work. Life is work. Kids, bless them, are work! Ebbs and flows-- this book will be sure to get things flowing again. Wright has organized a collection that captures the essence of true love, without being smutty, and illustrates how marriage doesn't have to be boring, but can be blissfully lustful. I encourage any couple to pick it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Keys To Red Hot Monogamy... October 22, 2013
Oops! Maybe I have the wrong book. I love the author. Saw the name and had to read it, but instead of spicy erotic stories, I held a book focused on the keys to red hot monogamy and keeping your marriage spicy after years and years and years. This is something Kristina Wright has never done before and I'm really glad I opened it and read it despite NOT possessing a Mr. Me. This book makes you believe in true love and happily ever afters, a perfect mix of every day and the attitude of those who make it mixed with spicy, inspiring married sex erotica. I don't think I've ever read Mrs. Wright so heartfelt! Several times I teared up and almost cried. Bedded Bliss is going into my "hope chest" for when Prince Charming finally pulls up to a gas station and asks for directions to my apartment. I loved this book. Like no relationship book I've ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every couple should own this... December 30, 2013
And this is why we gave this as a gift to two couples as a Xmas gift-one couple has been together for 20+ yrs and the other over 10yrs. Sexual intimacy is an important part of a relationship no matter what stage of life you are in. When I received my copy, I thumbed through and read a bit on life as a new parents. Because I went through this with my own kids, I couldn't stop nodding in agreement. Another plus is that the 'stories' are monogamous meaning you do not have sexy situations with a babysitter, neighbor or bodies that stay perfectly taunt for eternity. While those stories can be a turn on for some, Bedded Bliss keeps the hotness level high between one couple over many years.

Bedded Bliss is a combo of erotica with some very real guidance. I did not find myself rolling my eyes at any of them like I normally would when reading tips to keep your sex life steamy. It was wonderfully written and very real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lust After Every, Indeed December 9, 2013
This is a fabulous book on several levels. First of all, how wonderful to hear couples writing of their own stories--real and honest. Secondly, I love the affirmation of Kristina Wright that great sex comes from 'work' in good strong marriages. It is totally possible to continue a hot sexy romance throughout years of marriage.
Kudos to Wright for pulling off a self-help erotic book. She has offered practical advise with very strong, positive erotic stories! The writing is good and the stories vary in their approach to sex. A book I would share with friends in new or longterm marriages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Affirming encouragement November 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Bedded Bliss, A Couples Guide to Lust Ever After, by Kristina Wright (with index & resource guide, roughly 220 pages). This book is a serene and positive celebration of marital lovemaking. Bedded Bliss is structured roughly "chronologically" from newlywed to middle-aged lust and beyond. The chapters are organized with pragmatic suggestions and a suggestion sidebar followed by erotic short stories.
I feel like the greatest strength of this book is the author's genuine enthusiasm that shines through the language. Her keenness had me excited and agreeing. Who can resist a statement such as "Sex is sublime ...good sex is not only can not only be orgasmic but therapeutic". I totally agree that married sex is very undervalued.
The short stories were all good. Personally, the mixture of fiction and pragmatic suggestions gave me a bit of whiplash. But, I don't know how else it could have been organized. Maybe it should be read not straight thru but back and forth.
This was a worthwhile read. I've been married almost thirty years to the same great guy and still gathered new insights in this book. I was definitely nodding my head at the description of the trials and tribulations of having children, disruptive relatives, and dismissive media reports on the death of marriage. Moreover, I was tickled to see ideas I hadn't ever thought about; How about a bucket list of sex, or putting a bell on the kid's door. "Lust for a lifetime" - words to live by.
I received this book in order to review it.
