Format: Paperback
In the "Food World" there is the concept of an amuse-bousche...the perfect mouthful. It is specially designed by the chef to show off his or her greatest talent, as well as leave the taster begging for more. The collection, Frenzy: 60 Stories of Sudden Sex, accomplishes exactly the same response in an almost identical manner.

Allison Tyler has collected 60 short stories (no longer than 750 words) about hot encounters to fit all tastes. While no single story is enough to completely satisfy you, each one offers an explosive glimpse in to a world you want to re-visit time and time again.

What is especially remarkable is that with 60 stories, there is very little repetition. Each story maintains a unique flavor and impression in your brain. This is the perfect book to read in bed with your lover. You can reach over and say, "Oh, Honey. You have to try this!"

I cannot recommend this book enough!

Format: Paperback
"Frenzy" to me is that state where rationality is gone; you're acting on impulse and/or instinct, reacting to things rather than anticipating. Your senses are overwhelmed and your cognitive ability has been compromised to the point that you are not in control of what you're doing; you are purely in the moment, and are not necessarily yourself.

So, does this book get us in that realm of sexual frenzy, where nothing but the boink matters, where there is no before and no after, just the sweaty, engorged now? Alison Tyler's intro essentially equates frenzy to the quickie, but expands to a pretty good definition of losing oneself in "the hot liquid silver of a sexual strobe light." I like that imagery a lot, and it explains albeit metaphorically a great deal about sexual frenzy.

You get 60 stories packed into 209 pages. For the erotica bean-counters out there, that's 3.5 pages per story. Things move out very quickly here, and are over just as fast. No time for contemplation, no time for thoughts of consequence. The premise going into every single one of these stories is that you, Dear Reader, are already just as fully aroused as the story's characters. There is no time for seduction or foreplay, no time to build because it's on now, so you'd better keep up, because it's going to be over and done very soon.

There's lots of boy-girl, more than enough girl-girl, and some boy-boy. Plenty of multiple-boy and multiple-girl. Lots of BDSM and power-transfer. And some fun little vignettes that take these standards a bit further afield, like some gentlemen musing on the immense power of delicate female underclothing. The mix is good, and although this collection is packed with stories, there is little repetition.

Everyone knows that having a "quickie" is a great way to keep the passion alive in a relationship and it can be even more fun with a stranger in a completely unexpected place. This book is like a virtual quickie in every sense of the word. Short stories are great for a quick read before you go to bed to have a little fun but these are super-super short stories that will give you a quick "pick me up" while you're at a red light or in line at the drive-thru. They are that short. More importantly they are THAT good!

You should NOT read this book as a book. This is nothing but pure, unadulterated, freaky, sensual, in your face, in your body, animalistic, wanton, Roman-type carnality sex. You buy this book for two reasons and two reason only... to get turned on and to turn on! Get this book at your local bookstore, call your honey, read one of these stories (again, they are super-short so it's perfect), go home to find them waiting for you, call in "sick" the next day because you'll be too tired from the previous night.

Reading a sexual story can be a great aphrodisiac and this book is a great start.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Some of the negative reviewers have a point. The extreme brevity
of these 60 works hardly allows for the development of character
and plot expected of a story. Yet this economy of words also
provides this collection with its strength and delight.

Faced with a severe word limit, most contributors go for the
racy and the explicit. That, I suspect, is what most readers want
-- and get. More interesting, to my taste at least, are those
other contributors who take a different approach. Often they opt
for the subtle and understated, for the erotic over the
plainly sexual. What's lost due to the word limit is made up for
by the reader's imagination. Some examples are

* Nikki Magennis's two very short (each less than 150 words)
contributions ("Madrid" and "Sweets") of pure
description. Personalize them with details of your life.

* Mary Borsellino's "Cartwheels and Strays" plays with two
metaphors as one might expect from poetry.

* August MacGregor's "The First Time He Was Jealous" explores
with hands and with an artist's pencil parts of human
anatomy often skipped over in the rush to get it on.

and, most of all,

* Carmel Lockyer's "The West Pier", which is at once the
least racy and most memorable story of the collection.

As many reviewers have noted, the diversity of these "short shorts"
is one of the strengths of this collection. Surprises lurk. The
best surprises implore the reader to ask, "Why then did I like
this story so much? What does it say about me?"
