Night Owl Reviews
"I love fairy tales and enjoyed reading this book as it took the fairy tale characters that we all know and love and shows us their erotic side. If you are familiar with the original tales I think that you will enjoy Lustfully Ever After as much as I did. It is an intriguing look at the darker side of fairy tales."
"I recommend this to anyone looking for bedtime stories that are more mature than Andersen or the Grimm brothers ever imagined."
San Francisco Book Review
"I loved this book. The authors spend a lot of details into reinventing the characters. The book was very imaginative. There are some bondage and spanking in the story but all of the characters submit willingly. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was a nice erotic break from reality!"
Kissin Blue Karen
"Every story is wrapped up in erotic elements and twisted from the original just enough to inspire a different grown up fairy tale."
From the Back Cover
Even grown-ups need bedtime stories, and this delightful collection of fairy tales will lead you down a magical path into forbidden romance and erotic love.
In Michelle Augello-Page's naughty "Wolf Moon," Little Red Riding Hood herself is the big, bad wolf, while Kristina Lloyd reimagines "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" with a scorching hot threesome in "The Last Dance." Shanna Germain's "Mirror Mirror" reveals the Sapphic side of Snow White's stepmother and Lisabet Sarai's Rapunzel captivates us with her wanton ways in "Shorn." As editor Kristina Wright notes in her introduction, "the authors of Lustfully Ever After know your heart's most wicked and secret desires."

I enjoyed "Gretel's Lament" and how it utilized a perceived danger, with a hint toward the house of sweets and the oven from the original, to twist into something else entirely. "The Beast Within" puts the Beast into a corporate environment, the subject of conflict resolution. There was a nice exploration of his family issues as a reason behind his beastly nature and the Beauty character of the story was able to bust through his walls to help him find happiness again. "The Last Dance" is an inventive retelling of "Twelve Dancing Princesses", with the sisters all having been born at the same time as duodecaplets. In an age of media exposure, they were forced to live their lives in the spotlight and just want to break free of that constant scrutiny. With some identity swaps sprinkled in, it's all about wanting what others have and finding your own happiness. I really liked the take on Rapunzel in "Shorn". She wasn't imprisoned to protect her chastity, but because of her defiance over not cutting her hair. She does have a prince who joins her nightly, but her escape wasn't motivated by just her own desire for freedom.Read more ›
I found the stories to be pretty good, though I must admit that none of them really reached out and grabbed me as particularly hot or exciting. I suppose this was because the shortness of the stories kept the authors from really developing the situations sufficiently. My favorite stories in the book were The Beast Within by Emerald and The Last Dance by Kristina Lloyd.
It is a good book, and I liked it, I just didn't find it to be a great book.
(Review of Lustfully Ever After: Fairy Tale Erotic Romance by Kristina Wright)
Normally, I hop all over when I'm reading anthologies. But this one drew me in so deep, I read the whole thing cover to cover in one sitting. Every story had a happily ever after or happy for now ending, but the unique and occasionally kinky ways everyone from prince charming to princesses to match girls got there kept me turning the pages to see what happened next to characters with whom I quickly fell in love - or at least lust!
Stories like Sacchi Green's "Kit in Boots" and A.D.R. Forte's "Name" gave hot new views of what could have happened in those castles and dungeons if the real story had been told. Lisabet Sarai's "Shorn" and Michael M. Jones' "The Long Night of Tanya McRay" brought wicked sexy new settings, cultures, and characters to well-known tales.
Stories set in the here and now, but with a twist - Emerald's "The Beast Within," Kristina Lloyd's "The Last Dance," and Donna George Storey's "Sensitive Artist" - pulled me into HOT fantasies about how the Brothers Grimm's stories play out in the modern world.
I especially love how editor Kristina Wright built this anthology. The pacing pulled me from one story to the next, with just the right balance of edgy pieces like Shanna Germain's "Mirror Mirror" and the more traditional romances I always love - though even those, like Charlotte Stein's "You" and Evan Mora's "Real Boy" had a delicious bite.
Fairy tales like these are great for reading at bedtime, but they leave me ready for anything but sleep!
Most of the fairytales are recognizable but three I couldn't place and the very brief introduction does not mention this sort of specific nor are the stories introduced in any fashion. The most imaginative retellings are Little Red Riding Hood in Michelle Augello-Page's "Wolf Moon" and "Matches" from Anna Meadows that looks at The Little Match Girl from a very poignet view.
But by far the standout story is from Andrea Dale who takes the very real nature of war and its aftermath and gives it a very sensitive kinky twist in "Steadfast." In just 8 pages she pulls in more honest emotions that I think vets and their lovers can relate to than I've seen in dozens and dozens of pages. While it may seem to move too quickly to be fully realistic, given the nature of this anthology it simply amazed me by its depth.
The entire anthology may be worth the cost for this for these three stories but the other 14 are decent romps in the world of happily ever after.
