There was a surprise for me in the book. One of the stories was written by a man. I tend to avoid lesfic and especially erotica written by a man. I figure they can't possibly know what women feel and have no business writing about it. Besides everyone knows what guys think of two girls getting it on, right. I was not going to read it but Ms. Harper Bliss of Ladylit encouraged reassured me that it fit in and belonged in the book. I thought about it and remembered This IS a Ladylit production and they have never put out less than fantastic...Besides, don't I trust Harper and Cheyenne? Well, I begrudgingly admit that “The Talkies” did indeed belong here. Mr Edwards write with poise and tact, this is very tastefully story and it was just as good as the women. SO on that note I am very sorry Mr Edwards and Ms Bliss. Thank you for giving me MY first with this story.
Roses and Thorns by Annabeth Leong – Ruth is a woman who needs to find her inner strength. This takes her to a boxing gym where she finds not just inner peace but outer as well. Her lover Arlene did not understand at first but when she does...WOW!
The Opposite of Darkness by Harper Bliss - If there is one thing I can always count on it is Ms Bliss' ability to touch my heart in some way. This story is no different. This tale is romantic, seductive, intense and so sweet. Its a delight to all my senses.
The Talkies by Jeremy Edwards – I loved the plot, two women in the 1920s – 30s (I'm guessing) one an actress about to do her first talking film and a reporter who admired her very much! There are great descriptions of things I never knew existed. This is very understated and coy and the sexy bits are better and more classy then I would have believed.
Before the Bus Comes by Tasmin Flowers – After talking with her friends about death and regrets, Red decides that what she would regret is making love to a woman. Enter Lara and a hot sexy scene.
Whole Again by Brenda Murphy – This is a wonderful sweet story about a cook who was injured in the war and a cute waitress who caught her eye. It is so beautiful!
Pulling by Sachhi Green – Holy moly is this a HOT one!!! Ree is at the fair showing off her team of horses. Carla is working at one of the game booth. When they meet....um, yeah...definitely on of my favourites in the book!
The First Peonies by Ivy Newman – Oh I do love this one. Holly is a loner who doesn't do relationships but when she sees Mira dancing in the bar, something inside her changes...this is beautiful and haunting. The details really make this story so precious.
Repossession by Emily Byrne – This is the story of a newly single woman whose house is being foreclosed on and the banker who came to get the keys from her but manages to set her free in the process.
That Summer by Vanessa De Sade – A tender coming of age story. Very poetic and sweetly descriptive. A great read.
Amelia by Cheyenne Blue – Ms Blue is a magician with a pen. This is an enchanting tale of Amelia Earhart after she crashes and disappears. It is quite delicious and sensual!
Ghost of She by Jillian Boyd – This is a great tale of a woman haunted by her first who abandoned her after many years together and the woman who wants to be her second chance. This is really, really good.
The Sum of Our Parts by Andi Marquette – Another great tale by Ms Marquette. This is a tenderly written short with a pair of real women, (one a breast cancer survivor). they are not just characters on a page. Truly touching.
Soar Spot by Allison Wonderland. This story was more sedate and serious than anything I've read by Ms Wonderland. It is the story of two women coming together after escaping from domestic violence. It is very well done.
Sea by Rosie Bower – This is a unique narration about two very different women by the sea. It is truly inspired.
Dissolving by Cela Winter – This is a great story about being able to let go and trust your partner. Its hot and sweet and real.
Thank you so much for bringing these stories to me Ms. Blue!!
Roses and Thorns by Annabeth Leong was kinda HOT.
The Opposite of Darkness by Harper Bliss was a good story, but I would have liked to read Erica's description of watching Lauren climaxing for the first time.
The Talkies by Jeremy Edwards - I didn't really enjoy this story. The wording was just a bit too formal for me.
Before the Bus Comes by Tamsin Flowers was VERY HOT!
Whole Again by Brenda Murphy was a beautiful story.
Pulling by Sacchi Green was a fun story.
The First Peonies by Ivy Newman was a good story.
Repossession by Emily L. Byrne was well written and a good story, but very sad.
That Summer by Vanessa De Sade - I loved this story. I also love the quote from The Well of Loneliness "give us also the right to our existence!"
Amelia by Cheyenne Blue - Mystery solved.. Well done.
Ghost of She by Jillian Boyd was a wonderful story.
The Sum Of Our Parts by Andi Marquette was an excellent story.
Soar Spot by Alison Wonderland was okay.
Sea by Rosie Bower was a good story.
Dissolving by Cela Winter was a fun way to end the adventure of this anthology.
Overall this was a wonderful anthology. I thoroughly enjoyed most of the stories and will be reading them again. I will be checking out the other works from several of the authors that I hadn't heard of before this anthology.
Ladylit publishing is amazing and the authors that submit work for their anthologies are wonderful! I've learned about so many other authors I've enjoyed simply because of the anthologies Ladylit releases. I've given a very short review on each story below but just know that I enjoyed them ALL!
Roses and Thorns by Annabeth Leong: This was one of my favorites of the anthology. I really enjoy boxing so this story was multi-faceted for me.
The Opposite of Darkness by Harper Bliss: Oh my God! This story was so emotional right off the bat. With Harper's main character having lost her sight 7 years ago, she is just getting ready to have the bandages removed from a procedure that will give her sight again. And she'll see her partner for the first time EVER! Absolutely wonderful.
The Talkies by Jeremy Edwards: Another favorite for me! Again, it's partially because of the subject. I just LOVE the idea of a silent actress trying to break into the talkies for the first time.
Before the Bus Comes by Tamsin Flowers: This was such a hot story! Plus I loved the "twist" at the end. "Do you think we did it right?" LOL!
Whole Again by Brenda Murphy: I did enjoy this story but it was more for the social aspects of it. The judging of other people because they're "different" and the realization of who you are and owning up to it, even in the face of adversity.
Pulling by Sacchi Green: Yep, another favorite. I loved Green's description of the girl that is working the game booth and how all the guys are ogling over her, I couldn't help but smile and laugh a few times just because as the reader, we know she's interested in women. So seeing the boys get all huffy wondering why they aren't getting attention, is hilarious to me! I was highly entertained by this one!
The First Peonies by Ivy Newman: I so felt for the main character in this one and was very happy with the way it ended. I wasn't as into this one as some of the others, but still quite good.
Repossession by Emily L. Byrne: Honestly, not one of my favorites in this collection. It was very steamy and hot but I had a hard time with the seemingly manipulative nature of the banker.
That Summer by Vanessa de Sade: Basically a short story version of a coming of age tale. Very good and very sensuous.
Amelia by Cheyenne Blue: SHOUT OUT TO CHEYENNE! This story was my absolute favorite in the entire collection! I absolutely loved that she took famous woman and pilot, Amelia Earhart, and put her destiny into the hands of the unknown. I'm going to forever pretend that this is actually what happened to her because, honestly, just breath taking and so wonderful! I probably could've read a full length novel of this one.
Ghost of She by Jillian Boyd: This one was kind of sad for the most part and not until the end do we feel a glimmer of hope. Granted, all of us will understand the MC's plight as we've all gone through painful, haunting, break-ups.
The Sum of Our Parts by Andi Marquette: Another absolutely beautiful story! So full of emotions and sensuality. I think it's great to see MCs who aren't the "typical" version of the hot woman everyone is after. This is so real and so well done.
Soar Spot by Allison Wonderland: I love Allison Wonderland but this story was one of least favorites of the anthology. Not that it wasn't wonderful! (heh heh, I made a pun) but it just didn't quite hold up to the intensity of some of the other stories.
Sea by Rosie Bower: This was another good story but I couldn't help myself from wondering if the other woman was actually some siren trying to get the MC to plunge to her icy death in the sea! That wasn't the case, lol! And turned out to be quite the erotic scene, and an almost hazy fantasy dream world kind of story.
Dissolving by Cela Winter: I thoroughly enjoyed this story of powerful top learning how to let go and be a bottom for once. Very entertaining!
