Customer Reviews

Each story is unique, and several had a unique twist that was very hot and fun.

The stories themselves are also great for a pick up and read almost at random with a quick flip through the book.

The majority of the stories in this book were pretty good, and I enjoyed reading the book.

Rachel Kramer Bussel gives us what we want in her new collection of quickies, Gotta Have It. When there isn't much time, you've got to be a real master--of seduction, of knowing how to give it and get it without the luxury of lavish foreplay. These masterful stories show that getting what you want isn't boring: go ahead, let the stranger in the library bend you over the desk and grope you under your skirt ("Special Collections" by Fiona Curtis); tie your straight office mate up with the phone cord and suck him off while making him watch you get hard ("Jarret" by Shane Allison). But it's not all getting and having--there is artful delay here as well, abundance tempered by longing. In "Genesis" by Shanna Germain - the erotic is in the waiting, as student must wait for teacher to say when. This doesn't mean he doesn't get what he wants, however--or that we don't--as Germain shows us the erotic in the waiting, the power of seduction. And in "Don't Struggle" by Valerie Alexander, we get the hot sex, the delivery, but the erotic is as much in what hasn't happened yet, the "little dependencies" that will begin off the page. The psychological dimension of binding another to you, or of being bound, is as much a turn on as a feverish kiss.

This book is hot. My only complaint is that getting what I want made me so greedy that I didn't want the book to end.

Format: Paperback
Erotica editor Rachel Kramer Bussel manages with each collection to come up with yet another fresh challenge to erotica writers - and readers. This time she has limited contributions to 1,200 words. "gotta have it" gives us the best 69 of what she calls "sudden sex." But sudden doesn't mean partial or limited - it means fast and furious and hot.

From an innocent junior librarian's introduction to bondage literature (Special Collection by Fiona Curtis) to a phone sex message that messes with a man's mind (Red Light by Angela Caperton), we get fully realized stories that excite the imagination and other organs. Perhaps my favorite is My Femme by Evan Mora about the narrator's boifriend whose vintage teal-blue Corvette, known as The Femme, becomes the setting for a wild session. One of the best written stories (Need-Leash by Mike Kimera) has a married woman catapulted into an affair with a cruel lover saying, "It is not the betrayal or humiliation or the crippling tug of my need-leash that brings the tears," but rather her fear that "one day you will let go of my leash."

This collection is different from many of the other dozens that Bussel has done for it is not aimed at one sexuality, one fetish or one sexual specialty. It is inclusive of the full menu of erotic surprises. It's a great volume to dip into for that quickie - either private or not. Best of all, Bussel has created an encyclopedic volume of these sizzling shorties that still fits conveniently in one hand.

I'm a big fan of erotica. Ms. Bussel is a name that has been a kind of stand up and take notice name. I have four of her previous anthologies, and they are all lush. However I must say I'm happy to see her chose a wider berth and range of authors in this one.

I suppose it illustrates the point of the book some of the best things are new and shiny.

The stories range from the typical quickie (short and full of sex) to the not quite so typical (lead up before going to a quick fade-to-black). This sort of range is a wonderful departure from other erotica compilations.

With the short-short story format, each 1200 word (roughly) story has to cut to the quick and does so admirably. The stories themselves are also great for a pick up and read almost at random with a quick flip through the book.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on a review copy of Rachel Kramer Bussel's latest anthology, "Gotta Have It: 69 Stories of Sudden Sex". Bussel has deftly arranged an erotic buffet of provocative and intense tales to whet every appetite. This collection of sexy short stories will get you hot and bothered in no time.

"Seven Letter Word" gets things off to a quick start with a special kind of room service. While voyeurism ranges from the real to the imagined in "No Blame, No Shame" and "Good Neighbors". The Mile High Club is well represented in "The Copilot" and "Over the Line". You'll forget your work commute blues with "Over His Shoulder". "Crushed Satin Organza" reveals why it's sometimes better to be the bridesmaid than the bride. Other noteworthy stories include: "Manners", "Spunk", "Dining in the Dark", "Continuing Education" and "Eat Me".

Depending on what you're in the mood for (full menu or a la carte), "Gotta Have It" has you covered. Some stories are tried and true, others a bit unexpected--but overall this collection is quite satisfying. In a word: delicious.
