When I first got this book and read it I could not put it down.
rodog63jr
The descriptions where weak and very often repetitive, a broader use of adjectives and adverbs might possible help to improve these stories.

If you want to read the hottest book of the year, The Sex Chronicles is definitely it.

While not the biggest fan of erotica in the past, having read a few of the other erotica books on the market only to be left disappointed, I felt compelled to read The Sex Chronicles: Shattering the Myth because I have become a huge fan of Zane through her newsletters over the past two years. The other erotic writers out there only scratch the surface. Zane takes erotic fiction to an entirely different level. Her characters are vibrant, the situations are real and the stories are sensual. Some of the stories were so engaging that I could barely sit in my seat without squirming and others were so funny that I couldn't control my laughter. Every last one of the stories stirred something inside of me and I have never had a book do that to me before. The sister is truly talented and I would encourage anyone, no matter what your sex or race, to pick this book up with a quickness. Zane is destined for greatness and I can't wait to see what she writes next.

Turn up the air conditioning and PLEASE have a man on standby!! Whew! The visual pictures this book evokes is nothing compared to the feelings it stirs up! Girlfriend, you are to be commended for putting it out there and going where no one has really had the nerve to go, and tastefully at that. I have never been a short story person, preferring the evolution of the characters and storyline in novels. However, each story was so well rounded, it was like small doses of chocolate. Just right and hits the spot, even though you know you're not suppose to be having it at all. I can't wait to read Addicted and Shame On It All. If the short stories are that good, I can only imagine that one concentrated story will be off da hook! For anyone who feels they have gotten into a rut cause you've been married or together for so long that sex has become routine, then you NEED this book. Trust me. It'll open up a whole avenue of new ideas!! LOL Zane, keep of the good work.

Format: Paperback
I have never been big on erotica. At least, not until now. I have read several of those so-called "Best Erotica" books and they were drab and totally boring. Some of them I struggled to get through and others I simply tossed aside. Now a writer has finally come onto the scene that knows what erotica is all about. The characters in Zane's stories are so vivid and wonderfully crafted that you can actually start relating to them in the 10-12 pages you get to spend with them in their individual stories. The wild part is that Zane's stories are so different from one another while the anthologies containing several different authors all sound redundant. Most of all, Zane has made me realize that I am normal and I am relieved to know that other women think just like I do. This book is not for the prudish and sexually-repressed. If you want to read the hottest book of the year, The Sex Chronicles is definitely it.

Format: Paperback
I have been one of those fortunate to catch some of Zane's stories on the web. This body of work however, The Sex Chronicles, by far surpasses anything I've read from her to date. It is def. much wilder and delivers on its promise of being "of da hook." Not only that, but in mostly all of the stories, she paints a picture so vivid, that you could actually get consumed into the story, feeling you are actually a part of the action.
I was also impressed with the realism of the stories, being able to identify because I've either been involved in similar situations, or knew of someone who was.
I can't leave without commenting on the other promise that this book fulfills- "Shattering the Myths." After reading I can say that my personal myths were shattered about the sensuality of women. Reading these stories brought forth an understanding that women are every bit the sexual beings we are, if only a little different.
Excellent work. Zane. Erotica, tastefully Done.

Format: Paperback
Or, as more people do, come in Zane.

I picked this up when I would be away from the comforts of home for a week. It was just what I wanted - literate, luscious, and lusty. It's erotica that I can really enjoy, the kind that's mostly about people enjoying each other all out, in every way a body can please a body, own or others'. There's not much here for the fetish crowd, and almost every encounter centers on one man and one woman (from her point of view). Maybe that's not enough variety for some readers, but the endless variations work for me.

This is enjoyable, intelligent, and sexy, with extra flavor from Zane's brown sugar. I'm coming back for more.

This is definitely not a book for everyone ! In fact I would say it is for the matured adult and if you are easy to offend this is not the book for you ! Some of the characters can be realistic and sometime you will even be amazed at what they do ! Yes ! I will say Zane is a very talented author that leaves nothing to the imagination ! Reading this book has opened my eyes to somethings that I could never have imagined ! This is a collection of short stories not to be read at any time ! I found myself saving this books for bedtime reading ! It made me certainly appreciate being married ! I needed a highlighter and a pen while reading this book ! While I could only read one story at a time ,I use the highlighter to hightlight the stories on the contents page showing I have read it ! I used the pen to put a *for the stories I will read again ! I have not found many African American Erotica authors and I can see why ! Zane you are at the top ! You go girl ! If you think you can handle the challenge do so It has taken me 4 months to read this book ! No it was not a bad read in the since you might think ! It was a HOT one ! I will put the caution sign up again ....can be explicit no, will be expliciting told !
