Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
*He was staring at my mouth. At my bottom lip. I bit it. It was dirty fighting. I knew it. But I did it anyway. I would fight dirty if I had to for just one night with a man who wanted me. Wanted to f-ck me without consuming me. Or breaking me down. Who was secure enough to simply want me--and then take me.*
The book contains 13 frisky tales. My favorites were Pause, Masturbation 101, Underpass, and She Looked Good In Ribbons. But every single piece resonated with me.
From the upbeat to the offbeat, from the dark and dirty to the "God help me, just do me" -- this anthology is sure to please.
In Lucky 13, Sommer gets a chance to show off her stuff in a solo context, bringing together thirteen of her stories for your pleasure:
Confessions of a Sexpert #1: Sally Mae
Open All Night:Claire
Confessions of a Sexpert #2: Mr. Winkler
She Looked Good In Ribbons
Paper or Plastic?
Kissing Me Sexy
In this collection of thirteen stories, meet Noelle, whose infidelity will tug at your heart, as well as your arousal. The darkly powerful relationship between Jared and Brenda. The special customer service Lissa gets from Chad. The melancholy encounter between Alyssa and West in She Looked good in Ribbons, possibly my favorite story of the thirteen. The sizzling office threesome in Fresh Meat. And more.
As I expected, hot sex and well developed characters together have combined into a powerful collection of Sommer's work, and this serves as a good sampling of her oeuvre, style, and the buttons she likes to push. Like me, anyone who has encountered Sommer's work elsewhere will find more of her excellent work here, this time unalloyed by other writers. Sometimes, you want to devour just one writer's style and passion, and this anthology allows you to explore Ms. Marsden's work in that way.
Sometimes the thing's we're forced to wait for are the very best things. And sometimes, waiting is severely overrated. Try Sommer's work sooner, rather than later, and you will see what I mean.
Lucky 13 will have you turning page after page in passionate delight - I loved each story, but some of my favorites were: Pause, Open All Night: Clair, Masturbation 101, and She looked Good in Ribbons.
I highly recommend getting lucky with Lucky 13.
