About the Author

Cole Riley, an innovative voice in urban literature, produced several early street classics: Hot Snake Nights, Rough Trade, The Devil To Pay, The Killing Kind, Dark Blood Moon, and more recently, Harlem Confidential and Guilty As Sin. His erotica has been featured in many anthologies, including Intimacy and Maxim Jakubowski's The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica. In literary legend Ishmael Reed's newest book, Mixing It Up, Riley is cited as one of the influences on top-notch crime scribes Richard Price, George Pelacanos, and others. He lives and writes in New York City.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sensual treat... March 8 2010
By Jason Frost - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Delicious. Like warm caramel on a taunt, yet supple body. The first two minutes after a tsunami orgasm. Beads of sweat on parts of your body that you didn't know that COULD sweat. Emotional fornication. If sex, lust, and words had a ménage a trios that produced child, this book would be it. I read a lot of erotic collections and it's darn near impossible to find one where every story is one to savor. This one, however, comes tantalizing close.

The first story sets the tone because it is, quite simply, the best* in this book. From the set-up, to the story, to the negotiated sex, to the finish. Oh to be a strobe light in THAT van! I put an "*" next to 'best' because there is another story in here that is absolutely extraordinary! 'Stranger in the Water' is one of those special short stories that you wish would go on forever. And surprisingly it's not about the sex. Oh it's in there all right, but this story... this story... you feel. This story, you crave. If there was a better way for me to describe it, I would. But I can't. 'Dangerous Comfort' is one of those 'oh why can't that ever happen to me' stories. Loved it. 'Lonnie's Licks' made me squirm and 'Irresistible' made me fidget.

'All Day' had me thinking there was NO WAY I could do that, no way I would even try. 'A Taste of Tyrell' was just plain sexy! Yes, there were a couple stories that I skipped because, while being sexually free, I'm not into EVERYTHING :-) Cole Riley has done a magnificent job of putting together a truly hot erotic collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stories, but a little different March 29 2010
By TexasGurl08 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book for the most part. It had a variety of stories. No two were alike so you could get a different scene and feeling from each one. None of the stories were flat out raunchy like a few other books that I have read before. Each story is quite detailed but never boring! I am not a fan of some of the stories in here (BDSM is not my style). Other than that, the book was great. All of the authors did an excellent job!
