Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lustfully Ever After is a book of fairytales with a sinful twist. You'll become engrossed in fantasy world of magical, forbidden love. Erotic fairytales that will keep you in a constant state of anticipation, never able to predict what's coming next. You've never heard a batch of fairytales quite like this before!"
–Night Owl Reviews

"I love fairy tales and enjoyed reading this book as it took the fairy tale characters that we all know and love and shows us their erotic side. If you are familiar with the original tales I think that you will enjoy Lustfully Ever After as much as I did. It is an intriguing look at the darker side of fairy tales."
—Fresh Fiction

"I recommend this to anyone looking for bedtime stories that are more mature than Andersen or the Grimm brothers ever imagined."
—San Francisco Book Review

"I loved this book. The authors spend a lot of details into reinventing the characters. The book was very imaginative. There are some bondage and spanking in the story but all of the characters submit willingly. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was a nice erotic break from reality!"
—Kissin Blue Karen

"Every story is wrapped up in erotic elements and twisted from the original just enough to inspire a different grown up fairy tale."
—Paranormal Haven

From the Back Cover

Live Out Your Ultimate Romantic Fantasy!

Even grown-ups need bedtime stories, and this delightful collection of fairy tales will lead you down a magical path into forbidden romance and erotic love.

In Michelle Augello-Page's naughty "Wolf Moon," Little Red Riding Hood herself is the big, bad wolf, while Kristina Lloyd reimagines "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" with a scorching hot threesome in "The Last Dance." Shanna Germain's "Mirror Mirror" reveals the Sapphic side of Snow White's stepmother and Lisabet Sarai's Rapunzel captivates us with her wanton ways in "Shorn." As editor Kristina Wright notes in her introduction, "the authors of Lustfully Ever After know your heart's most wicked and secret desires."

Customer Reviews

The stories were loosely based on Grimm fairy tales, not necessarily following traditions.
Neker
The stories are pretty short (less than 20 pgs each) so it was difficult to connect with the characters.
M. Whitmore
Highly recommended for fairy tale fans interested in a non-Disney look at classic stories.

I was sent this anthology to review and I couldn't be more pleased! I've always been a fan of Cleis Press books and when you combine erotica and fairy tales I'm all in. There are a wide variety of stories here, re-tellings of well-known tales as well as some that might not be so instantly recognizable. For myself, I found that I was drawn to those that I could instantly pick out which stories inspired them and then set about to compare how they eroticized the originals. Out of the seventeen contributions to this anthology, there were a few that stood out particularly for me.

I enjoyed "Gretel's Lament" and how it utilized a perceived danger, with a hint toward the house of sweets and the oven from the original, to twist into something else entirely. "The Beast Within" puts the Beast into a corporate environment, the subject of conflict resolution. There was a nice exploration of his family issues as a reason behind his beastly nature and the Beauty character of the story was able to bust through his walls to help him find happiness again. "The Last Dance" is an inventive retelling of "Twelve Dancing Princesses", with the sisters all having been born at the same time as duodecaplets. In an age of media exposure, they were forced to live their lives in the spotlight and just want to break free of that constant scrutiny. With some identity swaps sprinkled in, it's all about wanting what others have and finding your own happiness. I really liked the take on Rapunzel in "Shorn". She wasn't imprisoned to protect her chastity, but because of her defiance over not cutting her hair. She does have a prince who joins her nightly, but her escape wasn't motivated by just her own desire for freedom.

This slim book features a large selection of writers who take a twist in re-telling fairy tales in contemporary setting. These tales are erotic tales that challenge one's imagination. Each short story focuses on some of the well known fairy tales that are set with adult (and willing) participants. I really enjoyed "Mirror, Mirror". Some stories are more powerful than others and each writer has distinct style that makes them stand out. Quick and easy read that is ode to creative imagination.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book is a collection of erotic short stories, each written to take a fairy take and bring it into a contemporary setting. Of course, with a book of stories written by seventeen authors, you are bound to find that you like some more than others. I found most of the stories to be well-written and reasonably hot. BDSM seems to be the dominant (if you'll pardon the pun) theme of the stories.

I found the stories to be pretty good, though I must admit that none of them really reached out and grabbed me as particularly hot or exciting. I suppose this was because the shortness of the stories kept the authors from really developing the situations sufficiently. My favorite stories in the book were The Beast Within by Emerald and The Last Dance by Kristina Lloyd.

It is a good book, and I liked it, I just didn't find it to be a great book.

Overall review:

Fantastic anthology, with wonderful stories that ooze with the supernatural mystery and enchantment that define fairy tales. I enjoyed all of the stories but one, Lynn Townsend's "Garden Variety," which sports a 'thud in the heart of Clichéville' finish that, given Townsend's otherwise great and imaginative take on "Jack & the Beanstalk," could have easily been avoided - even if the source fairy tale has that ending (I'm not sure if it does), it should have been a no-brainer decision to NOT end "Garden" in Amateur Hour fashion.

Note that I mention my disappointment with "Garden" not to slime Townsend, but to give an honest review. The writing that preceded her craptastic finish was top-notch, and I've no doubt that on most other days, her work reflects her magnificence with the published word.

This is an exceptional collection, one that is worth owning - all the writers in Lustfully display masterful chops, making for one of the best anthologies I've read in a long while.

Standout stories:

1.) "Rosa Redford" - Anya Richards: Exemplary tale about an actress (Rosa) and her mysterious lover (Bear).

2.) "Gretel's Lament" - Jeanette Grey: Good, sweet read.

3.) "Matches" - Ana Meadows: Good fairy tale with Spanish flavor.

4.) "Wolf Moon" - Michelle Augello-Page: Great, plot-taut twist mix of BDSM and "Little Red Riding Hood" that effectively script-flips the familiar fairy tale.

5.) "Mirror, Mirror" - Shanna Germain: "Snow White" gets an even darker, whiptastic and twistier slant. Clever, wow-worthy.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book is slightly out of my usual neighborhood, as I don't tend to pick up on "erotica", but I read urban fantasy and historical romances. Occasionally I read the Anita Blake series out of some deep loyalty to the past. I love The Bloody Chamber. I figured, why not? What do I have to be afraid of? Not much, it turned out. These short stories were no more explicit, really, than those, and while not all created equal there was a wide enough variety to keep things interesting.

The situations in this book range from kink to vanilla (more kink), the fairy tales from relatively faithful "once upon a time" to more urban, modern fantasy. Some stories are more lyrically written than others. One of them surprised me by making me laugh and there were only one a couple I didn't care for. There are always going to be some authorial voices that appeal more than others, but I think there's a broad enough range here to appeal to most. It's important, though, to remember that these are short stories. Romances are pretty much definition character-driven stories. Those who prefer long-form romances or even novellas may find character development a little lacking here. Some of these authors do a particularly good job of packing emotion in a small canvas, but they can't go as in-depth as a novelist can. I guess it goes without saying in a book subtitled "Fairy Tale Erotic Romance" that these stories are pretty explicit. More heart to some of them than some stories I've read that just bill themselves as "romance", but they bring the physical and they bring it into areas that may make more conservative readers uncomfortable. I kind of assume that more conservative readers will already know that, though, going in. :)
