While I enjoyed every story, there were a select few that stood out to me. I was happy to read new stories by some authors I've already read and enjoyed: Harper Bliss, Scarlet Chastain, and Beth Wylde. I also discovered some new authors that I'd be interested in reading more of their work.
One story that really stood out to me was Same But Different by Kate Atwood. The author is an amazing wordsmith and the symbolism in this story was breathtaking. Two women share their passions with a horrific, natural disaster on the news in the background. A story with an intense mix of beauty and ugly.
Another story that stood out to me was Sundae, Bloody Sundae by Lisabet Sarai. This story captured the D/S relationship between two women, one of whom has an eating disorder. Personally, I found the way the author presented the character with an eating disorder distasteful but this story did arouse a question many probably haven't thought of: How does an eating disorder affect a dominant/submissive relationship? I thought this was a question worth pondering and would bring up an excellent debate.
I mentally cheered when I came across Worth the Wait by Beth Wylde because I have been waiting very impatiently to read a good story between a butch and femme. There is something so classic and romantic with the butch/femme dynamic yet it seems these love stories are hard to find. Since this story was so short I am still actively looking for an amazing love story between a butch and femme character.
Also included in this anthology is a ghost love story, a princess and her princess, a steamy interracial rendezvous, and a college girl's first time. I'd highly recommend this anthology- it will not disappoint! Plus all sales go to a good cause- have I convinced you yet?!
Here is my overall impressions of it:
Coming Together: Girl-on-Girl is by no means the only lesbian anthology that is out there, but I would say that it just may be one of the most eclectic, smart, varied, and sexiest that I have read. It truly is a breath of fresh air. The genres vary, which means that there's a higher chance that you may not like all of the stories (but honestly, it's nearly impossible to find an anthology where every story will be adored by the reader!). But, that's what makes this anthology more interesting. As they say, variety is the spice of life, and this anthology certainly shows that. There is also a mixture of seasoned and established authors in here as well as lesser-known or new authors. Not one author overshadows another; they each display their talents in their unique stories that stands them out as authors in their own right regardless if she is well-known or not. As I said before, not all of the stories will tickle your fancy. Like with all anthologies, some stories you will gush about and love to bits while others may not be your cup of tea or will not entirely keep your interest. But even the stories that do the latter are still fantastically written and are by no means awful or boring; they are far from it. There is not one bad short in this anthology; they are all wonderful and share the same common theme: women in lust, in love, in yearning, in rapture, and in glorious heat with other women. None of these stories cater to the male ego or male fantasy either. Every story is very raw, real, and convincing in exploring how women express their lusts, yearnings, and desires of their fellow sex.
With the erotica genre being frankly way too over-saturated with M/F and M/M stories, I think F/F often gets neglected, ignored, or just taken for granted. It's really lovely to see an anthology that I hope will remind readers that F/F is just as hot, sexy, entertaining, and fun as M/F and M/M.
I can't recommend this anthology highly enough. Whether you are new to reading F/F or have an entire collection of F/F on your book shelf, Coming Together: Girl-on-Girl is a must-read and a must-own to have either in e-book form or paperback. Or both! You won't regret it, especially since the proceeds made from this anthology will go to such a good cause!
My favourites include Sundae Bloody Sundae by Lisabet Sarai. This tough but tender story deals with a Dom helping her anorexic sub overcome her fear of food. Erzabet Bishop's Ghost Lights is a chocolate covered ghost story and in New Girl by Harper Bliss shows how fun jocks can be. All of the stories are really, really good! This is a great book if you only have a bit of time to read one or two but I warn you, you won't want to put it down!
I want to thank Leigh Ellwood for taking these stories and putting them together and donating the money to a very worthy cause.
