I Got Lucky May 14 2009
By Oh you pretty thing... - Published on
Format: Paperback
Sommer Marsden knows how to tell a story. The fact that her stories are sexy is an added bonus--but even without the sex, the pieces hold together tight, leaving memories that linger. Her dialogue is dangerously good. You feel as if you're sitting right next to her characters, eavesdropping. But the descriptions are what really pull you in:

*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.

Get Lucky! May 13 2009
By Wade Beauchamp - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've been a fan of Sommer Marsden for a few years now, and this collection is perfect for longtime admirers and newcomers alike. Just like her characters, Ms. Marsden understands implicitly that our biggest sex organ is our brain. Her stories aren't simply white-knuckle thrill ride sex, although that's certainly there in spades, but instead she knows exactly how and when to sucker-punch you right in the heart. "She Looked Good In Ribbons" is still my favorite erotica story of all time. "Open All Night", "Fresh Meat" and "Mrs. Polenesi" are all in my Top Ten as well, but every single entry in this compilation is worth the price of admission. If you like smarts with your smut, do yourself a favor and get lucky with Sommer.

An unalloyed batch of excellent stories from Sommer Aug. 28 2010
By Jvstin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Ms. Marsden's talents first came to my attention because of her frequent appearance in the anthologies edited by Alison Tyler. Again, and again, the name would crop up, always tied with a story that had strongly developed characters, were sizzling hot, and understood that the fastest way to arouse anyone of any gender or sexual orientation was to engage the organ everyone has in common--the brain.

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
Masturbation 101
Open All Night:Claire
Confessions of a Sexpert #2: Mr. Winkler
Fresh Meat
Mrs. Polenesi
She Looked Good In Ribbons
Paper or Plastic?
Kissing Me Sexy
Beautiful Rita
For Tonight

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.

Cause for Rejoicing May 14 2009
By Erotic Elf - Published on
Format: Paperback
Sommer Marsden's impeccable instincts for stoking the erotic flame at the heart of a story, her sincere foundation of compassion and sensitivity, and her flair for sympathetic comedy at just the right moments have made her one of today's most beloved erotic story authors. The publication of a hand-picked collection of her short pieces in an all-Marsden volume is truly a cause for rejoicing among erotica connoisseurs.
