Editorial Reviews


"So over 50 Shades? Try a sexy anthology, like Cleis Press's Best Women's Erotica 2013."
—Women's Health

"Her women’s erotica compilations are as smart as they are sexy—and female pleasure is spotlighted in every story."

"Something saucy for everyone to choose from, whether you’re a first-timer or a connoisseur of all things erotica. With eighteen female authors to choose from, there is sure to be at least one story to suit you, whatever your taste in filth."
—Sh! Women's Erotic Emporium

"Ms. Blue is known for her sexual prowess. She’s also a safe bet when it comes to providing erotic literature to read and enjoy a bit of 'me time'. This selection of erotica writers provide all sorts of fetishes and kinks for a novice erotic reader to taste and explore. Each of the stories are smoothly written with medium to high heat factor. There is nothing tame in this book. Just as there is nothing too taboo either. It’s a buffet filled with different combination of sexual partners and desires. There is something written for everyone. For those who are hedonist, pretty much every single story will appeal."
—BDSM Book Reviews

"These stories all depicted desiring people experiencing authentic sexual pleasure. There were definitely some hot stories here, and I was pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the protagonists and the varying ways that their characters were developed and expressed."

Whether you’re male or female, I can easily see a wide variety of people enjoying this collection of erotica. A couple of the stories can be found in other books, but those are really great stories, so I’m glad to see them included anyway. This book is arousing, has high-quality stories that are pushing “normal” boundaries without being too kinky, and Bet Women's Erotica 2013 just is an overall fantastic erotica collection.
-Pop My Cherry Reviews

"If you like tantalizing and titillating stories this anthology is full of them. Those two sexy words describe the stories in this book. Eighteen stories that paint wondrous pictures of so many different places and different adventures, so full of likes and even loves.These stories are well written and pull readers into their worlds. I enjoyed many of the characters and their stories. BEST WOMEN'S EROTICA 2013 has it all from food play to visiting strip clubs and all that comes in between.Sometimes I enjoy a short hot read and these stories hit the spot. There is character and world development that make many of these stories shine. I love when you can get lost in a story."
–Fresh Fiction

"I am jealous of Violet Blue; she is totally living the life that I have wanted to live since I was about sixteen years old. She is lucky enough to get the opportunity to read through hundreds of superb entries and narrow them down to around twenty choices to then publish as the best for each coming year. Best Women's Erotica 2013 does a superb job of covering a wide range of fetishes that is geared towards women who enjoy well-crafted and highly imaginative erotica. These women are comfortable with their sexuality and are more than willing to share what they know with anyone who wants to join them on the adventure. Even if you do not connect with each fantasy you will at least be able to appreciate the level of craftsmanship that is applied in each tale. Each writer knows how to write a sexy and emotionally stimulating tales. I look forward to next year's anthology with bated breath."
-Night Owl Reviews

From the Back Cover

Ignite Your Erotic Imagination

Violet Blue is on a mission. With the aim to entertain you with the sexiest, smartest women's erotica anywhere, she will trigger your erotic imagination. From the sweetly romantic to the bold and daring, each of the eighteen stories in Best Women's Erotica 2013 provides the spark to your flame.

The shy, redheaded heroine of Valerie Alexander's "Night School" explores her very kinky desires with an unlikely submissive while working at a small-town hotel. In Krissy Kneen's "Susanna," a virgin enjoys her first taste of lust and learns that the true language of love has very little to do with words. A burly mechanic rescues the Assistant D.A. and her broken-down car but makes her ear the favor in Jenny Lyn's "The Tow Job."

Best Women's Erotica 2013 is a playbook of delectably sexy scenarios to add to your sensual repertoire. Award-winning editor Violet Blue presents "explicit sex at the dizzying heights of exquisite fantasy with the lights on, and you, the reader, get to see everything."

5.0 out of 5 stars More than satisfied! December 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
There is a lot of erotica out there that has disappointed me time and time again, but I stumbled across Best Women's Erotica 2012 and had finally found a group of stories that could keep my desire going as well as my intellect and imagination revved. After finishing that, I immediately looked for the next book and received Best Women's Erotica 2013. It does not slack in any way. If nothing else, it gets more risque. I love it. I'm reading it again, and it's amazing. I recommend this to all women! You will not be let down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Anthology January 9, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I look forward to these anthologies from her every year and every year Ms. Violet Blue delivers. I've read all of her other anthologies and one thing that keeps me coming back to these books are the very stories themselves. The authors she chooses for her anthologies are good at what they do. They are real storytellers - you won't find any 99 cent smut here. And I don't say that to knock the people who read those - some of those can be entertaining as well - but I'm just saying that if you're like me and you're a person who doesn't just like a good sex scene, but like a good sex story, you will like this anthology.

All of the stories were great, but I especially loved the last story, The Fattening Room, because it focused on loving and accepting someone for who they were. In that story a Canadian man was engaged to an robust African woman, who had shared the custom with her fiance amid their own sensuous tryst. There was plenty of dessert play involved and the rest I will leave to the imagination, but it was deliciously erotic.

In the end, there really is something for everyone in here. You really just never know what you're going to get when you read these anthologies. The beauty of the short story is that you can keep coming back to it again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Variety is the spice! April 26, 2013
By Mama K
Format:Kindle Edition
I love picking up this text when I have a little bit of time, and digging in to one or two of the short erotic tales.

Violet Blue has found the formula - diverse and sexy stories with something for everyone. A few of the stories I really liked, including Rachel Kramer Bussel's 'Exposing Calvin' about a couple's trip to the strip club, 'Stop 'N Buy' about a foreigners adventures navigating the language barrier to her benefit, and 'Blush' by Mary Borsellino incorporating trans and queer sexualities, communication and safe sex practices. I was personally drawn to these stories as well as 'Night School', which touches on sex work and a BDSM lesson, and 'the Fattening Room', there is something so sexy about voluptuous bodies and playing with food.

The excitement from this book is something that you can return to over and over again, just like your favorite sex toy. I really enjoyed the range of stories and perspectives Best Women's Erotica has to offer.

There were a few stories that didn't do it for me and I wish I had known a bit more about their content before I read those, so that I could opt into others that were much more to my liking, but over all the entire book contains many gems and a lot of variety with something bound to turn you on and get you off!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of hot stories November 23, 2012
By Ryan
This is a collection of 18 of the best erotic stories I've read -- Violet Blue sought out excellent authors and suffered the arduous work of reading hundreds and hundreds of great works to put this collection together -- hard work but someone had to do it. The stories cover a fairly wide range of fetishes and settings, but most are interesting tales and characters and all are quite explicit, in a good way. I'm confident everyone will find several greatly to taste. A few of the fantasy settings and encounters seem like they would be worth trying, too.

Salamander is a tale of a hot casual encounter from a park. Exposing Calvin is a couple visiting a strip club together. The Tow Job is a whole lot better than AAA's service. And there are 15 more.

Obviously not only women will enjoy this book, although for guys, it is also an excellent gift for your wife, girlfriend, or other lover. As the introduction says, "this book is a sex toy."

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Variety - A little something for everyone October 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The brevity of the stories was what made the biggest impact I believe. It must require a lot of discipline to write one of these stories. Heck I can barely write a review of the book that concisely - LOL! But in most cases I still had time to get a bit invested in the characters. I guess that is how the stories ended up in an anthology called "BEST".

I wish that I had not ordered any of the three books for it was such a lame repetitive script. And in saying that, let me assure you that I love books of passion and sizzling intimacy with hot erotic action but this was borderline dull. It is only my fault for ordering and mine alone but you wanted to know and so I let you know my feelings. I am a man who also purchased a while back all three "Shades of Grey" books which have been so "popular" in the minds of some, especially women. What I found while toughing it out through all three of the books was that it struck me as very demeaning to women and yet women seem to have gobbled up these books. I guess because I am not a man who is into whips and chains but rather prefer to use my lips, tongue, hands and other body parts to excite my partner, it just did not do it for me.
