Editorial Reviews

Review

"I think this book will appeal to people that are already part of a couple and also serve as inspiration for singles that there is a great sex life to be had beyond the vows. Some of these couple’s find the fire needs kindling. Once the wedding is over and the kids have taken over some may think there are no surprises in the marriage bed. This book puts to bed all those myths and features just enough kink to keep it very sexy."
—Kissin Blue Karen

From the Back Cover

Red Hot Monogamy

Irresistible features loving couples who turn their deepest fantasies into reality—resulting in uninhibited, imaginative sex they can only enjoy together. Engage in a little sexting in A.M. Hartnett's sizzling "Safe for Work" office tryst, and follow a kinky candidate for public office—and his lusty wife—in Alyssa Turner's intriguing "Hypocrites." Cole Riley's moving "Same As It Ever Was" shows that makeup sex can be worth fighting for. As editor Rachel Kramer Bussel notes, the lovers in this daringly romantic anthology are "able to open up in the ways they do precisely because they have another person to rely on...We get to see how the layers of trust that have been built up get used to stoke the fire that burns between them."

The stories were indeed a lot of fun to read.
Deborah Oster Pannell
While reading this book every time I finished a story I would clear my mind to prepare for the next tale and each time I was pleasantly surprised.

I like reading erotica. My wife? Not so much. Having grown up rather sheltered, she always passes when I offer to let her read from my collection of books. One reason is that she doesn't like reading about cheating stories, or people who meet for one night stands.

While such things don't bother me since I know the stories are fictional works, she is for some reason unable to "disengage" and enjoy reading them due to her long-held beliefs of sex and marriage.

Which is why I'm so glad Irresistible came along. The couples in this book are actually couples. No anger-banger revenge sex. No cheating stories. Just great erotica that satisfies both me and my wife.

Every couple of nights we read a story together. I read a story to her or she reads a story to me. Sometimes I just say, "Read this one" and walk out of the room so she can enjoy some private time with a very hot story.

Sometimes we read a story and go to bed, while at other times we read a story and its content encourages us to...well, I'm sure you can figure that out.

Irresistible is a book that catches a group of readers who had probably given up on finding "their" kind of erotica. Even though couples are not necessary for my reading enjoyment, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Irresistible.

Format: Paperback
This book features couples who make their fantasy a reality. This book is deliciously good in a very monogamous kind of way. Some of these stories are about re-kindling the fire. Others stories are of couples that are quite familiar with their lovers. The know how to please each other, no glamorous seduction is necessary. What I found in this book were cut to the chase stories full of sexy kink. Cleis Press publishes this book and it is edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel. The book is 206 pages and includes 16 stories by various authors, including the editor. There are a few authors in this collection that I didn't recognize, but all the stories were richly told.

I thoroughly enjoyed the stories in this book. With the exception of two stories, all of them were about established couples. I think this book will appeal to people that are already part of a couple and also serve as inspiration for singles that there is a great sex life to be had beyond the vows. Some of these couple's find the fire needs kindling. Once the wedding is over and the kids have taken over some may think there are no surprises in the marriage bed. This book puts to bed all those myths and features just enough kink to keep it very sexy.

My favorite stories in this book told just enough about the characters to hook me in. Twice Shy was about a little bruise. I loved how she obsessively dwelled on it. The little bruise opened the couple up to exploring pain with pleasure. "Do you want more?" "Yes, More!" Delicious how innocently it begins!

Safe for Work was another one of my favorites. It starts out with a dirty text. Lucky for these two they work for the same company and he's the boss. The thrill of making her all business husband pay attention and give her what she needs for lunch are fun and flirty.

Format: Paperback
Just when it seems that erotic literature is becoming even more niched, Rachel Kramer Bussel brings it back to the fold with her latest collection, 'Irresistible: Erotic Romance for Couples.' She's a top noche editor and writer, and this group of stories is no different. Well crafted and engaging, the plots unfold and the couples heat up the pages according to the imaginations of some of the genres best writers including Cole Rile, Alyssa Turner and Delilah Night.

I'm not surprised this anthology was put together; with erotica's popularity riding a high momentum, many readers come from mainstream backgrounds want to read about their own lives, or at least imagine the possibilities; whether you are curling up in your favorite chair, reading aloud to your partner, or languishing in a bubble bath and taking mental notes of what you'd like to do when a special someone comes home.

Cleis Press continues to produce top-quality romantic literature, and Bussel continues to be one of my favorite editors, which is why I'm certain Irresistible may not be safe for work, but it's a strong bet for pleasure.

Format: Paperback
I VERY MUCH enjoyed "Irresistible". What should make it so odd for me to give it such a high rating is because it is a known scientific fact that males are VISUALLY stimulated. Yet, I found myself REPEATEDLY aroused by each story. Some more than others, but as a whole, this book very much did the trick.

The reason I don't want to single out an author is because this is an anthology, which is a collective effort. One person I will applaud in this collective effort is the editor, Rachel Kramer Bussel. For Ms. Bussel has a knack for choosing authors skilled enough in their writing to take you with great detail to the places that these sexual adventures happen, and into the bodies of the characters to let you do what reading should do - make you feel you are experiencing their sexual adventure via scenario and bodily pleasure. Hence why this book can be seen as not only a new stimulation for men. But also a sex lesson book for men, as some stories can teach men what exactly drives women wild, which is something that many men fall short in the knowledge of. Now, with the brain being the main sex organ, the writing here certainly caused titillation to my male nerve endings as they didn't need visual assistance.

This critique is not saying that my male instinct doesn't crave a visual version. But by reading this book, if I ever hear that a visual version is in the works, I will be more anticipating of its release because of what I've read.
