Inspring Erotic Encounters! Jan. 22 2012
By Karen Blue - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a collection of wild one night only encounters, collected and edited by Violet Blue. These stories are not about relationships, although some of them are about the one that got away. The one that almost got away, anyways. These stories read like good fantasy erotica, some are on the edge of dangerous. These are sex stories most of us only dream of.

There is a certain freedom in a One Night Only encounter. You can be the person in control, or be taken and not have to look your lust in the eyes the next day. These stories tell us of unbridled lust that is not fit for relationship and commitment. Think of that one person in your life (or fantasies) that you wish you had one night with....this book is a collection of those type of stories.

This book is 209 pages, published by Cleis Press. One Night Only includes an Introduction by the editor, Violet Blue, and an About the Authors and About The Editor section. The book contains 19 stories, most from familiar authors of erotica.

My favorite stories in this book featured a bit of risk, and one night only. Just a Little Trim actually takes place during the day in a Salon, with a man highly desired by the staff. The stylist gets really inventive with a bit of privacy in the shampoo area.

Subway Subterfuge takes place in a crowded subway over many days. Their eyes meet and the chase is on. This story is hot and full of the thrill of the chase and the mystery of a stranger. It doesn't get to full blown sex part but their encounters are still so erotic...the story was hot!

My favorite story of One Night Only lust was written by D.L. King. A chance encounter with two strangers at a hotel bar, both attending different conventions. This story is so hot! The best part is who these people actually are, he thinks she is a whore and he gets a big surprise.

I have to admit I didn't love every single story. Chasing Fate: Exige about a guy in a stolen car who sees a girl he used to know, was a bit of a stretch. I think the lust for that story was too wrapped up in the type of car they were in and not enough about the sex. Hole in Your Pocket was another story I couldn't quite get. To me it felt like the author assumed she knew my fantasy, about the one that got away. My fantasy doesn't look like that, I wouldn't have attended his wedding to someone else.

Most of the stories were pretty hot. Obviously, with this many authors One Night Only sex is not going to be the same for everyone. I enjoyed the variety and the way the characters were able to just be adventurous. Who knows, this book may even inspire you to have an erotic no-holds-barred encounter of your own!

Spice it up April 7 2012
By vmpr - Published on
Format: Paperback
Nice collection of various stories. Some I liked, some I didn't, but overall it was a good read and the nice thing about them is if you don't like one you can skip to another to read. Me and my husband has had a blast with some of these stories and if you don't mind sharing them with your significant other it will help spice things up a bit
Erotica that satisfies on many levels March 23 2015

What a treasure trove of great erotic writing! The consistent high caliber of these nineteen short stories makes “One Night Only” one of the most enjoyable and rewarding collections to come along in quite some time. Editor Violet Blue clearly has an eye for quality, along with a gift for effective organization, arranging the contents with an uncanny “right-ness” reminiscent of a great filmmaker—then again, she was undoubtedly inspired.

The unifying theme here is the one night stand; those breathless, fleetingly ephemeral yet utterly unforgettable sexual encounters that often occur by chance, occasionally nurturing regret, but seldom recalled without a tinge of nostalgic delight. So it was in the reading, as well. It would be difficult to choose a favorite from among so many fine pieces, though several do stand out in my memory, reverberating in those sections of the brain that delight in a cleverly turned phrase, not to mention an increasingly cantankerous and picky reptilian core.

I was immediately hooked by Alison Tyler’s “Seeing Stars” with its vividly imagined main character, a lonely ticket-taker in a decrepit all-night movie palace who ends up taking a chance on a handsome patron. Fast-paced and thrilling, Kev Henley’s “Chasing Fate: Exige” is a Frank-Miller-esque tour de force of bad boys up to no good, fast cars and the even faster women who love both. “Performance Art” by the gifted Cynthia Hamilton takes a more cerebral tack, but is no less viscerally satisfying in its steamy denouement wherein two visitors to an art museum momentarily become part of one of the exhibits.

Jan Darby’s “Maid Service” delves the notion of “invisibility”, that is, the unspoken assumption that “the help” is to remain discreetly out of sight and out of mind. Yet when a guest at a business hotel “notices” the pretty housekeeper, all notions of class hierarchy and propriety are temporarily forgotten. Donna George Storey’s “Hole In Your Pocket” evokes a delectable torture with its poignant and powerfully titillating story of lust suddenly requited when a decades-long Platonic relationship explodes into the physical realm. Austin Stevens’ “Belle de Soire”, D.L. King’s “Whore”, and Kristina Wright’s “Just a Little Trim” are aptly sly and equally satisfying in their portrayals of frisky professional women out for a thrill.

Rachel Kramer Bussel’s “Rock Star Rewards” is a scintillating character study of a tough lady rocker on tour with her band, a woman who knows what she needs and the means to get what she wants. The game of chess was never so sexy or sensually intense as in Abby Abbot’s absorbing and well-imagined “Tournament”, and in “Three Pink Earthquakes”, Thomas S. Roche’s gritty, phrenetic style is perfectly suited to the story of a down-and-dirty ménage encounter under a barroom table.

Enthusiastically recommended!
