"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"No lesbian erotica anthology could be tailored more to my taste than this one filled with hot stories about sporty lesbians. (Because there are not a lot of things in life that I love more than sporty lesbians.) Please, Cleis Press, can you make this an annual series?" -Harper Bliss
"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." ―llellsee,p>"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

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. I also reviewed it separately in much greater detail.
I didn't care for the other stories. They seemed weak to me.
I bought this anthology in paperback and paid eighteen bucks for it. I liked the above four stories, but I can't say for sure that I got my money's worth.
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.
