"Well described, believable and with likeable characters throughout, Girls Who Score managed to never felt repetitive despite the obviously strong jock theme in each story."
"Goyanes’s stories are so comfortable; they feel like your own. She also has a keen wit and isn’t afraid to use it."
D. L. King, author of The Harder She Comes
From the Back Cover
Girl jocks always manage to see a lot of action off the field. Female athletes have an easy confidence about them, a natural nonchalance and killer bod that draws all kinds of women to themstraight, lesbian, bisexual, curious, you name it. Girls Who Score is a winner, filled with story after story of competitive, intriguing women engaging in all kinds of contact sports. Sinclair Sexsmith contributes "A Good Workout," set in a gym with lots of hot action in the steam room, and the losing boxer gleefully surrenders in Gina Marie's ever-so-sexy "Blood Lust." Delilah Devlin's soccer players have a very good time in the showers after "Playing the Field," and Elle's "Game Over" follows a cheerleader who trains a freshman each year to serve her every need. Whether it's hockey jocks, scuba divers or gym bunnies, editor Ily Goyanes features sporty dykes of every stripe in this sweet and sweaty volume that proves women play hard and love even harder.

But... not so much. Most of the stories were just locker room encounters. Whatever. Here's the four I liked:
"No, Tell Me How You Really Feel" by Ily Goyanes. Genuinely fun to read, I was smiling from start to finish. It worked for me because the narrator had such a great voice. The conflict and chemistry between the captain of the volleyball team and her reluctant fan was fascinating and sexy.
"Lucky Number Three" by Beth Wylde. An ice hockey player takes one for the team. I enjoyed this story despite the first person, present tense narrative. The details of the hockey game felt real and I believed the characters were actually athletes.
"Run, Jo, Run" by Cheyenne Blue. A cross-country runner tries to outrun her demons. This story is also in the first person, present tense. But here, it's appropriate. Jo runs to stay in the moment and not dwell on things she can't control. When she's running, the past can't catch up to her. The effect of the narrative style is haunting.
"Cymone's Dominatrix" by Paisley Smith. This story was AMAZING. It absolutely blew my mind. I just didn't think it was cohesive with this anthology. I get the sports connection - Cymone is a gladiatrix in Ancient Rome. But the tone and setting were really different from the rest of the collection. However, I liked it so much that I purchased it separately.Read more ›
No, but really... I didn't know what to expect. So, I went into reading the book with an open mind. Since I had a hard copy and not a PDF on my Kindle meant I couldn't hide what I was reading from the world. On the playground, waiting after school for my elementary school aged child, in the back of a car on a ride, I read. I had a few people raise eye brows at the title.
This is a collection to sixteen stories written by sixteen different authors. In each story, you can really feel the different personality of each writer. I will admitted that not every story appealed to me, but not based on the topic or plot. Some of the stories (to me) felt like they were forced fiction, and some of them felt like two friends sitting down, swapping stories of a single moment in time.
I'm a huge fan of anthologies because you get a taste of individual personalities and styles of writing all on a similar topic, so I can compare and contrast what I like and don't like about the author's style.
Of note, my favorite story of the collection was Anna Watson's "Give and Go". I've never read anything she's written before, but found the story very true to life. I could picture her words and the plot line was probable. I didn't feel like she forced the story or added a bunch of stuff that was unnecessary.Read more ›
I'd love another volume, I can see this as an anual collection since there are many more sports and stories to work from. I was really hoping for some women's soccer action (What lesbian isn't? They're Goddesses.) so if there's another book I hope we'll get some of that.
Over-all for lesbian sports erotica, this book can't be beat.
Those who know me will understand fully well that I am possibly *the* most unsporty person around. In fact, I absolutely loathe sport with a burning passion that equals my hatred of pink legwarmers and peanut clusters. That being said, I shoved aside my personal misgivings and plunged headfirst into this collection.
First off, just absolutely delicious and WOW. Although my interest in erotica is cursory--as in I edit erotica should a manuscript get passed my way--but editor Ily Goyanes has successfully brought together a diverse selection of tales that made my little bi-flavoured heart go thumpity-thump.
From locker room shenanigans to love found while running in the countryside or skating competitively on ice, the ladies whose stories are told here are contrasting and varied. What they share in common is the exhilaration of physical expression. And for once I have to admit it was lovely to read about women who are so very different from the world with which I'm familiar.
I will let slip that my absolute favourite-favourite in this collection was Cymone's Dominatrix. I was *not* expecting an ancient Roman setting and two gladiatrices... Considering my absolute current adoration of Riptide Publishing's Warriors of Rome series. No contest.
So, for what this collection of short stories is, it wasn't what I expected when I was given the book by one of my editors, but it far exceeded my expectations. If you're looking for a selection of beautifully crafted stories about those girls who're not your typical femme fatale, then don't hesitate to lay hands on this title.

As with all anthologies, there were stories included that I wasn't keen on - a couple I read the first couple of pages then skipped the rest altogether. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Lucy Felthouse
Good build-up and climax in each story. If you like to read about lesbian seductions, these stories are good reads. Will get hot and "bothered"! :)Published on May 3, 2014 by Kindle Customer jg
