Although the seven stories were well-written only a couple really stood out for me because of their sensual nature and cerebral effect they commanded. My absolute favorite was "Juan and Adela" by Michelle Herrera Mulligan which is about an older woman who falls for a younger man. Their attraction is too stimulating to ignore and what started as purely lustful is much more satisfying in the end. I also found "Don't Be Mad At Me" by Adriana Lopez to be an interesting storyline and although there were some erotic scenes the story itself still had me thinking about its outcome and almost feeling complete, but unfulfilled. The other stories touched on lesbianism, sadomasochism and fantasy.
Mulligan in her introduction states as sexy as Latinas are, they do not like to talk about sex because of their strict catholic upbringing. JUICY MANGOS reveals they too, have sexual desires. This collection has storylines to back up the sensual nature of the compilations, in other words these are real stories with the added bonus of erotica. Although I was not a fan of the stories involving sadomasochism and fantasy I cannot deny the imagery and pacing of these well-written stories. Fans of erotica with a cerebral edge will enjoy this collection because just like the mango, the stories are juicy.

I liked that the book contained short stories. The range of erotica kept me interested. My favorite was the last one because it was complete fantasy with a happy ending.Published 12 months ago by Jenevieve Pacheco
What an entertaining book! It's great to see such and open an honest examination of this subject in an environment that has, for too long, tended to supress it. You go, girls!Published on July 22, 2009 by Discerning reader
I didn't like it at all. It compares to other books written on the same topic. It didn't leave me wanting to read more more. After the first three stories I stopped reading. Read morePublished on August 12, 2007 by Debbie Ruiz
