Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Funny how marketers seem to have decided that in order to sell a book of erotica, it has to have "for women" in its title. Well I'm a guy, and I not only read this book, but I thought it was pretty good. Does that mean my guy-card is going to be revoked? Anyway, this is a collection of 18 erotic "fairy tale" stories. Some are retellings of classic fairy tales, others merely evocative of the fairy tale genre. Some take place in a contemporary setting, others not. Some begin with "Once upon a time" or "Once there was...", others not. Some use quasi-olde-tyme language, others not. Some are quite well written, others not.

The quality of these tales varies widely, from the plain awful to the remarkably good. I'd say the majority of them are nice little appetizer-sized helpings of cleverness, charm, humor (or melancholy) and sexiness. A few soar above that modest level of success, and a few fall short of it.

"The Obedient Wife" by Delilah Devlin: One of those modestly successful stories. Nicely written, clever and sexy.
"How the Little Mermaid Got Her Tail Back" by Andrea Dale: Rather rambling and unfocused, and while it may seem odd to say this of a story that's a retold fairy tale, its believability is ruined by a glaring hole in the description of a central scene.
"Ducking" by Craig Sorensen: A well-intentioned retelling of The Ugly Duckling, wherein the protagonist comes to realize that she's suffering from a distorted self-image, and in fact is a Total Hottie. Rather unsophisticated writing compared to the better stories in this book, and what are those references to ninjas doing in here?
"Three Times" by Justine Elyot: Charming and funny, with a Happily Ever After lesbian marriage ending.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Fairy Tale Lust is an anthology of short erotic and semi paranormal stories. I had high expectations for this book because I really enjoy books by Angela Knight and thought this book would have stories with a similar style. (But I discovered that Angela Knight does not have a story in this book and only writes the forward.) Warning: Even if you like your books a little racy I must repeat these shorts are NOT for the 'vanilla' romance reader.

As mentioned earlier, these stories are not what I expected. Most of the stories are set in modern times and loosely have a sort of fairy tale twist. I thought the stories would be based on common fairy tales set more in a `fantasy' world. (I think, Enchanted: Erotic Bedtime Stories For Women by Nancy Madore did a better job of fairy tale erotic romances) Because of this I felt the shorts were not as interesting as I thought they could be especially since the stories were very short stories and therefore the plots are not very complex.

I think if you are looking for vignettes that are kinky (shocking and titillating) and for the most part set in modern times, then you will enjoy this book. But if you expect stories that really follow a fairy tale theme and have more a plot this book may disappoint. (Although there are a few which do such as a Beauty and the Beast type story by Delilah Devlin.) Because I like the emotional connection between 2 characters and these shorts were brief. I couldn't get into the stories as much as I hoped. But if you are just looking for some inventive and erotic sex stories that are quick `flings' then this book will satisfy.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
While the criticism from other reviewers that this book contains no one particular type of erotica is correct: the selection of stories is as fun as it is varied with no emphasis on one style. Readers looking for a specific genre of erotica may be disappointed for the most part when they see their preferred type only once or twice, so consider the book to be a sampling of different voices and predilections with more of a focus on the reworking of fairy tale themes; if the attitude is to enjoy the stories from that perspective, then this book is wonderful!
None of the stories are really hard-core, and while some toy with less mainstream sexualities, none fully delve into that. Because each story is so different, this is a great starting point to finding authors you like, so it's a great starting point into erotica.

The best way for me to review this is to give a little hint of what each story contains, so hopefully that will give you an idea of what to expect and whether or not you want to buy this naughty little read:

The Obedient Wife
Somewhat of a period style, but not quite as far as "ye olde storie", this is about a poor miller with a beautiful daughter who wishes to get the most money from marrying her off. She finds other ways to make her own money on the side while technically maintaining her virginity until the right man proves not only the highest bidder, but something of a beast (literally). Elements of light domination and fairy-tale bestiality (think Beauty of the Beast, not a donkey show). Well-written and a good story in its own right.

How the Little Mermaid Got Her Tail Back
Story of female submission with a touch of kink involving costume play with, you got it, a mermaid outfit. Ok story. Modern tone.
