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."

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.

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.

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.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have a large book of fairy tales that I've had since I was a kid but my youngest nephew is now almost 12 so it's been some years since I've read anything out of it. I had fun with this book trying to figure out which fairy tale each story was patterned after.

Some you could tell by the title but a few others made me have to flip through my fairy tale book looking for a match. It was amusing to read the original fairy tale and compare it to the erotic tale.

Honestly, I expected this book to be more erotic than it actually is. I don't think this is the fault of the authors but just my own expectations. I thought the stories were no more erotic than many of today's romance novels I've read.

As with any anthology, I enjoyed some stories more than others and felt some were written better. I'm not overly fond of uber flowery prose and a few of the stories had a bit much of that for my taste.

I'm purposely not singling out any particular author/story here because 1) when reading a short story, it's sometimes hard to get a good handle on just how talented the author really is and 2) I find most reviews to be fairly subjective - a bit like saying "It's the cheese that really makes a great pizza" and someone else saying "No, no, it's the crust". It's all a matter of taste and what appeals to me most certainly is not going to appeal to all so I've tried to make my review a bit on the objective side.

Taking into account all of the stories, whether or not the erotic moments were a turn on and how entertaining I found this book, I'd give it a solid 3.5 stars.

The best thing about this book for me was finding a few authors that I'd never read before and adding them to my list of "authors to keep an eye on".

Kristina Wright's Lustfully Ever After anthology is one of the books making my vacation a true getaway. Talk about steamy new takes on all my favorite fairy tales!

Normally, I hop all over when I'm reading anthologies. But this one drew me in so deep, I read the whole thing cover to cover in one sitting. Every story had a happily ever after or happy for now ending, but the unique and occasionally kinky ways everyone from prince charming to princesses to match girls got there kept me turning the pages to see what happened next to characters with whom I quickly fell in love - or at least lust!

Stories like Sacchi Green's "Kit in Boots" and A.D.R. Forte's "Name" gave hot new views of what could have happened in those castles and dungeons if the real story had been told. Lisabet Sarai's "Shorn" and Michael M. Jones' "The Long Night of Tanya McRay" brought wicked sexy new settings, cultures, and characters to well-known tales.

Stories set in the here and now, but with a twist - Emerald's "The Beast Within," Kristina Lloyd's "The Last Dance," and Donna George Storey's "Sensitive Artist" - pulled me into HOT fantasies about how the Brothers Grimm's stories play out in the modern world.

I especially love how editor Kristina Wright built this anthology. The pacing pulled me from one story to the next, with just the right balance of edgy pieces like Shanna Germain's "Mirror Mirror" and the more traditional romances I always love - though even those, like Charlotte Stein's "You" and Evan Mora's "Real Boy" had a delicious bite.

Fairy tales like these are great for reading at bedtime, but they leave me ready for anything but sleep!
