Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Funny how marketers seem to have decided that in order to sell a book of erotica, it has to have "for women" in its title. Well I'm a guy, and I not only read this book, but I thought it was pretty good. Does that mean my guy-card is going to be revoked? Anyway, this is a collection of 18 erotic "fairy tale" stories. Some are retellings of classic fairy tales, others merely evocative of the fairy tale genre. Some take place in a contemporary setting, others not. Some begin with "Once upon a time" or "Once there was...", others not. Some use quasi-olde-tyme language, others not. Some are quite well written, others not.

The quality of these tales varies widely, from the plain awful to the remarkably good. I'd say the majority of them are nice little appetizer-sized helpings of cleverness, charm, humor (or melancholy) and sexiness. A few soar above that modest level of success, and a few fall short of it.

"The Obedient Wife" by Delilah Devlin: One of those modestly successful stories. Nicely written, clever and sexy.
"How the Little Mermaid Got Her Tail Back" by Andrea Dale: Rather rambling and unfocused, and while it may seem odd to say this of a story that's a retold fairy tale, its believability is ruined by a glaring hole in the description of a central scene.
"Ducking" by Craig Sorensen: A well-intentioned retelling of The Ugly Duckling, wherein the protagonist comes to realize that she's suffering from a distorted self-image, and in fact is a Total Hottie. Rather unsophisticated writing compared to the better stories in this book, and what are those references to ninjas doing in here?
"Three Times" by Justine Elyot: Charming and funny, with a Happily Ever After lesbian marriage ending.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Fairy Tale Lust is an anthology of short erotic and semi paranormal stories. I had high expectations for this book because I really enjoy books by Angela Knight and thought this book would have stories with a similar style. (But I discovered that Angela Knight does not have a story in this book and only writes the forward.) Warning: Even if you like your books a little racy I must repeat these shorts are NOT for the 'vanilla' romance reader.

As mentioned earlier, these stories are not what I expected. Most of the stories are set in modern times and loosely have a sort of fairy tale twist. I thought the stories would be based on common fairy tales set more in a `fantasy' world. (I think, Enchanted: Erotic Bedtime Stories For Women by Nancy Madore did a better job of fairy tale erotic romances) Because of this I felt the shorts were not as interesting as I thought they could be especially since the stories were very short stories and therefore the plots are not very complex.

I think if you are looking for vignettes that are kinky (shocking and titillating) and for the most part set in modern times, then you will enjoy this book. But if you expect stories that really follow a fairy tale theme and have more a plot this book may disappoint. (Although there are a few which do such as a Beauty and the Beast type story by Delilah Devlin.) Because I like the emotional connection between 2 characters and these shorts were brief. I couldn't get into the stories as much as I hoped. But if you are just looking for some inventive and erotic sex stories that are quick `flings' then this book will satisfy.

I came to this collection of erotic fantasies after reading and being thoroughly impressed with Lustfully Ever After: Fairy Tale Erotic Romance, the second installment of fairy-tale based erotica from the collection's editor and Cleis Press. Having shamelessly enjoyed the second installment, I thought I might give the first a try. Most of the stories in this collection had a modern, urbane setting, but made obvious references to the fairy tales of our blissfully ignorant youth. Each short story was not too short and not too long, and all brought a distinctive element of passion and arousal to the table.

My favorite short story of this collection- nay, of both collections- was Gingerbread Man. Here, elements of love and grief born by the loss of a companion mix extremely well with the general erotic theme. The fairy tale dimension works very well here, as the reader gets both a love story and a good slug of erotica within the context of a timeless tale of transmutation.

This go round, I read each of the stories without my customary glass of wine. I then returned to the collection, wine in tow (a delicious Oregon Riesling no less), and read Gingerbread Man a second and a third time. Each reading brought out more of the layering and texture within the story, and I especially liked the juxtaposition of kneading of the dough and infusion of emotion with love-making. After reading the story, I made a point of seeking out more of the author's (Carol Hassler) work, and moving it to the top of my reading list.
