"Only You: Erotic Romance for Women has a little bit of everything from sweet and delicate to sweaty sexy, from brand new love to old and battered but still running strong. It’s like a Chicken Soup book for the erotic romance world." ―Quixotic Orchid
From the Back Cover
Only You is full of tenderness, raw passion, love, longing, and the many emotions that kindle true romance. The couples in Only You test the boundaries of their love to make their relationships stronger. These lovers don't just go along for the ridethey want to take control and see how daring they can be. New parents rediscover their hunger for each other at a hotel in Lolita Lopez's "Mom's Night Out" while first class passengers get creative with ice cubes (and each other) in Catherine Paulssen's "In-Flight Entertainment." Kristina Wright's quarreling couple ends up having the hottest make-up sex imaginable in "The Love We Make." Whether it's a woman wanting to surprise her husband with cuffs and a blindfold, cooks exploring the sensual possibilities in the kitchen, or young artists who simply can't keep their hands off each other, Only You showcases twenty stories that are as loving as they are lusty.

All too often when we read these books we are confronted by casual flings and superficial hook-ups between consenting adults and, hey, that's okay if that's what you're into or just find it a guilty pleasure. But sometimes I feel these stories can make the people in committed relationships feel a little boring in comparison to the daring, no-strings attached people who are so eager to try new things with new people in many of these stories.
While I don't look down on anybody's lifestyle, I happen to be among those people - however few of us there are left without being labeled 'old-fashioned' - who believe that true sexual satisfaction doesn't always have to involve a new partner or a new scene. There's something to be said for us people who want our relationships to remain about just us and the ones we love.
The relationships of the people presented in this story, whether married or just solid, were authentic. These people were in it for the long haul and I really loved that. No one story stands out among the others when it comes to content. I felt like each was a mini erotic romance novel unto itself. They were sexy and descriptive with characters from all walks of life that could be you, your mom, your dad, or, yes, even your grandparents (if that turns you off, then accept dying young. Other than that, grow up).
I definitely love my erotica with an edge (spanking, BDSM, and all of that good stuff), but this is the 'feel-good' anthology. This is the one you can read and not feel cheap. The other anthologies are a matter of perspective, so if reading the more kinkier themes doesn't make you feel cheap - go for it. I'm just saying that this is the one that even a prude might take a peek at.
Good, mainstream, hit-every-angle-from-clichéd-to-inspired women's romance anthology. Worth owning, if you're a woman. If you're male, buy this for play with your lady, or not at all.
1.) "Saved" - Cassandra Carr: A married couple "spice things up." Sweet story.
2.) "September Song" - Anna Watson: Themes - donating clothes, music, old age, and, of course, sex. Well-written.
3.) "Matters of the Heart" - Tenille Brown: A couple reunites. Well-written.
4.) "Hollywood Romance" - Veronica Wilde: Initially a slow burn read, this tale is about a woman who relives old memories in an old movie theater. It lives up to its title with its unlikeliness, in a good way.
5.) "The Nude, Stripped Naked" - Jeremy Edwards: Romantic, art-infused work.
6.) "Autumn Rain" - Michael A. Gonzales: Beat and nerd culture, post-punk, the city of Baltimore and romance are celebrated in this perfect, wonderful story. Easily the best story in this anthology.
7.) "In the Doghouse" - Hanne Martine: Character-interesting tale about an actor who begins to take control of his life, public and carnal.
8.) "Forgotten Bodies" - Giselle Renarde: An older woman rediscovers her desire. Strong, emotional content in this one.
9.) "Driven" - Angela Caperton: Theme-focused and sensory vivid piece with enough backstory to be above-average, but not so much story to annoy readers unconcerned with plot.

I found this collection of short stories to be totally enjoyable. I can’t say that there was any that I truly didn’t like. Maybe you would like to find romance again. Or maybe rekindle that fading romance. You just may find some pointers within the pages of these fabulous stories.
One of the things I liked most about these stories is the fact that they were about your average everyday type of people. People like you and me. Another thing that I noticed is that it showed you that you don’t have to be in your 20’s or 30’s. Romance or eroticism isn’t just for the young. It doesn’t have an age limit on it.
Within these stories there is something that you may find interesting and able to fit into your own romantic, hot and steamy nights.
Some of my favorites from the anthology included Mom’s Night Out, Slow Fire, Forgotten Bodies, Autumn Rain and Matters of the Heart. I was able to get behind and relate to these women. They were real. But truthfully I really enjoyed them all.
So grab the ideas and add a little spice back into your bedroom. You won’t be disappointed. This is also a great read aloud set of stories also…just an idea.
