Book Description

March 19 2007
He's on Top details the methods and adventures of those irresistible men who control their partners with a glance, a tickling whip, or a measured smack on the bottom. As true tops, the bossy hunks in these stories understand that BDSM is about exulting in power that is freely yielded. Contributors such as Amanda Earl, Mackenzie Cross, Alison Tyler, and Mike Kimera cover the full range of the male dom's brand of sensual sadism, from spanking and bondage to public sex and power exchange.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's On Top May 29 2007
Format:Paperback
Rachel Kramer Bussel's done it again; brought us a delightful collection of slightly twisted, but always hot little stories. These companion books delve into the shadows of dominance and submission, from a male and female point of view. Dominance and or submission are mind-sets; when want and desire meet the right amount of need and forcefulness it is indeed like "coming home." The stories in these two books speak also to the mental and emotional aspects that are involved in these types of relationships. We may not understand why we need to be caned, or to wield the whip ourselves, we just know that we do and that the resulting heated backside or stinging palm leaves us breathless with want. Even though release and orgasm is the expected end result, it is the controlled journey we take to get there that is the key.

M. Christian writes in "In Control" (He's on Top)

"I kept it on for a mental beat of ten. Not long, but long enough. I released it, keeping my hand on her shoulder. It always hurts so much worse coming off than it does coming on."

The protagonist adds a companion clip, and then beats a chopstick staccato between the two excruciatingly pinched nipples. He controls her pain, when she comes, and how she comes.

In N.T. Morely's "Room 2201" (She's on Top) Marshall returns to Mistress Caroline, seeking exactly what he says he does not want. He says that he can and will do anything, as long as Caroline does not arrange to have him taken; unfortunately for Marshall Armand is already waiting for him. It is not only the pending act itself that makes Marshall hard in anticipation; it is the anticipation of being forced to do something he doesn't want to do that keeps him that way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended June 5 2007
By Master Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars please, sir, may I have some more...? Nov. 23 2007
By The Kittie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Someone might think that a collection of stories all based on the same theme would be very repetitive. That someone would be very wrong! These stories are funny and poignant and sexy and I loved 'most every one - and I very much liked the rest. They feature characters that are complete beginners, professional-grade veterans, and all levels in between. The men "on top" are as varied as can be, and not a stereotypical one in the bunch. The first story that you can preview here on the site reeled me in and I was absolutely hooked from the moment the book arrived. I particularly loved "Yes," and my new favorite xmas story, "On the Twelfth Day..." Even the stories that I have read in other collections are worth taking the time for a second read (or a third, a tenth...). Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delivers June 21 2007
By Brandy Underwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The title says it all in this exciting book and if you are into this, you will not be disappointed in this book. This is another of the few books of erotica out there that you don't mind sharing with your partner. Both can enjoy it without feeling embarrassed or put off. The writing is well done and tasteful, which surprised me, because I didn't like the cover. In fact, I almost passed it over because of the cover but decided to try it because of the great glowing reviews. I'm glad I did. But I took one star away from this book because of the cover and I hope the publisher will take note that just because a person likes erotica doesn't mean they want to see a pornagraphic image on the cover. For others who might be put off by this, let me just say that the rest of the book is done in good taste so you might want to give it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Jan. 31 2008
By TammyJo Eckhart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am not into the entire maledom/femsub thing -- personally I think we get enough of that in our everyday lives still. Therefore I rarely read this orientation in erotic fiction. Usually when I have I am insulted as a woman and turned off. While I cannot say that any of the stories in this collection -- 17 stories in all- turned me on, they certainly did not insult me. The men here are not stereotypes or macho[...]using BDSM as a guise for abuse. The women are not nymphos or brainless puppets. The dynamics of most of the relationships are rather romantic in motivate and the vast majority are well written and complex. I appreciate the lack of stereotypes and the promotion of loving, consensual and beneficial Ds and SM.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great companion to She's on Top Sept. 19 2007
By V. Gauthier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I love all of Rachel Kramer Bussel's work. I found this to not be too BDSM but more about psychological dominance. Especially "Not Until Dawn". Next time I have a boyfriend, I'm going to make him read this book, especially that story. Picture perfect way to tempt, tease, and "torture" a woman. If you're a guy you can definitely pick up tips. I also really enjoyed "On the Twelfth Day", which is about a man who has twelve days to introduce kinkier games to his girlfriend. I can see me doing this as well. She's On Top is also an excellent book. Can't wait for Yes, Sir and Yes, Ma'am, which are like these books but told from the submissives point of view. They're due out in February 2008. You won't regret buying this book.
