"Sexy, smart and literate: Best Women's Erotica 2012 presents the year's hottest bedside reading.There's a hungry audience of readers who demand smart, literate, emotionally charged women's erotica--stories that tell the truth about women's sexuality in all its variety and emotional depth, with all its surprises and twists and turns...Best Women's Erotica 2012 is just for these readers. 5-star editor Violet Blue delivers exactly what readers want- fantasy-fueled, pulse-racing reads that push boundaries and are "let's try this as home" aspirational." --Fresh Fiction "I always think these types of books are wonderful as they give readers an introduction to several authors at once. While you may not love every story there should be a few you do. Don't expect bland sexual experiences because there aren't any in this book. Instead, think outside the box." --Night Owl Reviews "Every story has one thing in common--as Violet Blue herself says, 'a woman is at the center of every pleasure.'...When erotica is made for women, there is a nervousness that it will be very gentle. Not so with this collection--the desires range from deliciously vanilla to spiced with kink...It's an anthology that will expand your palette... and your mind." --Romantic Readers and Writers Association

"The Nylon Curtain" by Elizabeth Coldwell was exquisite - I really enjoyed the anticipation and build of the eroticism. "Pagoda" by Sommer Marsden was also enticing. Perhaps my favorite story was "A Wider World" by Donna George Storey- the story moves along nicely, doesn't get confusing, and manages to stay sexy.
Erotic Anthology - Dec. 6th, 2011
In the Best Women's Erotica, there is an array of stories that vary from: implied sex, to spanking, to sex with knives, MFF, bondage and even one that felt a bit incestuous.
The shorts in the book really differ. In fact, the very first story called Drought seemed a bit poetic and experimental. Unlike many erotic anthologies the sex does not often seem straightforward and many of the stories are in first person which sometimes did not work for me since I have more trouble getting into a story where the main character isn't very interesting. Compared to their book, The Best Erotic Romance, I found this book was a little lack luster. I could I could not get into the stories quite as easily and the stories were a bit uneven. The story about Dolly I found a bit disturbing and one story in particular seemed to be on the edge of violence. I found this book a bit too shocking for my tastes. Still, less mainstream readers who enjoy more edgy reads that have much more than vanilla sex and that could even be called a bit artsy will find this book a treat.
Be warned, some of these stories are bit extreme and I would caution readers that some stories may not be to their tastes -wilder and kinkier than most in the market.
