Good stories, but the book could have more of them.
Alexandre
As far as the writing goes -- it all just seemed to be very amateurish -- almost like a poorly edited collection of stories written for a creative writing class.
Vivian McDonald
The book Lust, edited by Violet Blue, covers a wide variety of fantasy stories.

The book Lust, edited by Violet Blue, covers a wide variety of fantasy stories. This erotic book of only 180 pages went from 0 to extremely sexy in no time and really pushed my buttons. I didn't relate to every story but I enjoyed a peek at someone else's lust. I loved the variety of types of lust found within it's pages.

This book is a compilation of 17 erotic authors. It is edited by Violet Blue and published by Cleis Press. Violet Blue writes the Introduction and temps us with her words. " When lust overcomes you, you barely know who you are or what you are doing. Each of the women in the following selections knows that feeling, and the skilled authors represented here -both new and well known-faithfully capture that feeling in each woman's passage from ordinary to extraordinary sexual hunger."

Ripe Fruit was a steamy story about a woman working a fruit stand in the heat of summer. It is all flies and scorching heat until the star of a film being shot locally comes calling. This sex gets sticky when he finds creative ways to use the fruit.

The Importance of Good Networking tells us the tale of an office girl who lusts after the new computer guy her company hires. Things get really interesting when she puts him to work on her in a cubicle. This story brings up the importance of going after what you want even if he is not what everyone else finds attractive.

Moving was a very interesting story of a woman who finally reaches retirement and is taking her daily walk/run when she discovers her lust is on her route. This story was set at such a relaxing pace, I was almost envious of the smooth transitions in the relationship.

Very cheesy! I belive you can write erotic without being vulgar, not the case of this book. Just plain boring.

These are all polished, well-written stories that seem to be exercising some restraint. Engaging all the same, but I was looking for something a little smuttier, a little less polite, if you will.

When you have 12 5-star reviews, you think "wow, this must really be good". However, I was quite disappointed in it. The writing was poor and it was basically just Penthouse letters supposedly aimed at women. However, for the most part, I didn't find the stories appealing nor the descriptions of the encounters. Many were unconventional as in a woman, her long-time partner, and a man which I didn't find appealing.

I guess I like my "escapes" to be a bit more traditional and obviously, I'm in the minority here. I guess if you like a wide variety of scenarios, you will get it with this anthology. However, if you are not into "way-out" scenarios, I suspect you will be put off by the stories in this book.

As far as the writing goes -- it all just seemed to be very amateurish -- almost like a poorly edited collection of stories written for a creative writing class. I'm just very surprised that this book (in my humble opinion) was just not that good given the glowing praise of all the other reviews. I'm glad there are so many folks who enjoyed this book... I'm just not one of them.

This book has truly boring, poorly written, non-sensual, non-sexual stories. Romance novels from the drug store are more stimulating.
