Like its companion volume SHE'S ON TOP (ISBN:1573442690) HE'S ON TOP explores Dominant/submissive erotic adventure from the point of view of the Dominant, but in this case it is the male who takes control.
Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, this book of tales skillfully avoids the potential pitfalls of its theme. Men dominating women sexually is a loaded topic that in the wrong hands could produce a portrait of vulgar degradation. But in Ms. Bussel's hands it is always clear that no one is doing anything against their will - these women enjoy freely giving control to their male doms, and find much reward in doing so.
The anthology begins with N.T. Morley's "Not Until Dawn," a tale of exquisite erotic tension where a man repeatedly brings his lover to the edge of climax but stops just short of actual orgasm. When he finally gives his woman what she wants the result is a mind-blowing release of pleasure.
Other standouts include:
"Yes" by Donna George Storey is a scorchingly hot tale wherein a man's aphrodisiac is his woman's willingness to do anything for him - including being given to his friend for a short time to use as he pleases.
"A Good Reference" by Mackenzie Cross is a perfect answer to anyone who wonders what rewards Dominant/submissive play has in store for those in indulge in it.
Andrea Dale's "On The Twelfth Day..." is a beautiful Christmas present unwrapped over twelve days, and proves that romance is alive and well in the heart of BDSM.
"Brianne's Fire" by Amanda Earl is the story of a Master conductor's seduction of his star violinist, or is it the other way around? The story is a masterpiece, a fantasia of sensory details so vivid the reader feels like they've smelled the roses, tasted the wine and felt the leather on their own skin.
HE'S ON TOP concludes with a Master-ful (pun intended) tale called "Schoolgirl and Angel." Set in a BDSM club called The Sanctuary, the story shows a young leather Daddy finally becoming the best Master he can be with the erotic encouragement of two remarkable women, one his partner and the other a mesmerizing stranger.
HE'S ON TOP is a fabulous collection of hotter-than-hot stories of women and the male dominants they - freely, joyfully, and erotically - give up control to.
