HASH(0x9d10eeac) out of 5 stars How to Silence a Telemarketer Sept. 2 2009
By Kate Chopin - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have a nice collection of erotica, and to me, this anthology is like the little black dress: a staple. Every erotica collection needs one. Here's why: let's contemplate a world with rewarding customer service, telemarketers rendered speechless, and Secretary's Day, every day.

Open for Business starts with steamy foreplay in the form of Lisette Ashton's story 'That Monday Morning Feeling.' And the heat keeps building. That fabulous telemarketer story is next, followed by Sex, Lies & Library Books, which will excite any bibliophile. Jolene Hui's 'Casual Friday' cracked me up and turned me on, and T. C. Calligari wowed me with a sexy example of employee management and proper customer attention. I'm also stoked about Savannah Stephens Smith, a new-to-me author who captivated me from the first couple sentences in 'Lonely at the Top.' Ms. Smith has talent for lusty storytelling and I can't wait to read more of her work.

I saved the best for last. 'One Cubicle Over' by Jeremy Edwards stole my heart and, well, all of me. I have to admit I'm biased, because after one or two of his stories, I started checking every anthology I wanted for his name. If you read this story, you'll know why: this man writes like we assume Don Juan lived. In 'One Cubicle Over,' he crafts Mindy's body as a character with allure strong enough to overrule 'irreconcilable differences.' How great is that?

In all, this collection of stories delivered exactly what I hoped for with the 'work' theme. I highly recommend this book.

HASH(0x9d10ef60) out of 5 stars Almost tempts me into going back to a day job! July 18 2008
By Emerald - Published on
Format: Paperback
For those drawn to the popular and expansive world of office fantasy, Open for Business is tailored just for you! The irresistible combination of conventional professionalism and raw lust fills page after page, but rest assured, there's plenty of variety. I had numerous favorites in this anthology, a few of them being N.T. Morley's fabulous "Memorandum" with its clever mix of humor and BDSM-themed naughtiness, the sexy encounter that builds with terrific tension to relieve office boredom in Saskia Walker's "TGIF," and Jeremy Edwards's endearing tale of lustful craving in "One Cubicle Over." The incredible imagery from Tulsa Brown's gorgeous "On the 37th Floor" stayed with me for days. And "Lonely at the Top" by Savannah Stephens Smith is a hot, striking, poignant piece that, as far as I'm concerned, is simply not to be missed. Kudos to Ms. Tyler for putting together a fantastic anthology of office-themed sexual escapades that cut straight through the professional veneer to the (often forbidden) primal core. If you're a fan of sex-at-work fantasies or just hot erotica, I highly recommend picking it up -- and taking the day off!

HASH(0x9d19b39c) out of 5 stars Gets you through your day... Sept. 10 2009
By Whitney Shaw - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was exactly what I expected, and all that I wanted. I have a fantasy associated with office escapades so it was great to read stories written by other people who have the same idea. One of my favorite stories was about a temp and a window washer, how hot would that be to show a stranger parts of you, through a window on the 30th floor? No touching, just looking with your eyes, controlling the situation, knowing you're driving the bulge under his jeans...

Since I work in and office it was easy to put myself into many of the situations, I only wish it would have been me.

The book is filled with short stories that are easy to read, so take a lunch break, or a smoke break and get yourself off with one of these stories.
HASH(0x9d19b78c) out of 5 stars A Little Office Sex May 10 2013
By Karen Blue - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book Open for Business is sex with a work theme. I am so turned on by office sex. I was inspired and turned on by some of these sexy tales. The book Open For Business is edited by the sexy writer Alison Tyler so I wouldn't expect anything less.

Open For Business has 22 stories that mix business with pleasure. Contributing authors include: Lisette Ashton, Xavier Acton, Donna George Storey, Sommer Marsden, Elizabeth Young, CB Potts, Shelly Jansen, Maxim Jakubowski, Jolene Hui, T.C. Calligari, Marie Sudac, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Jeremy Edwards, Kristina Wright, Savannah Stephens Smith, Tulsa Brown, Mike Kimera, Alison Tyler, Saskia Walker, Marilyn Jaye Lewis, N.T. Morley, Nikki Magennis.

The first story, That Monday Morning Feeling by Lisette Ashton, sets the tone for steamy seduction. This story is about a naughty cubicle worker who has a great way to make the commute to work awesome. Then the book rolls into This Call May Be Monitored For Quality Assurance by Xavier Acton, which was a very clever tale. This inspiring bit is about a telemarketer that gets more than he bargained for when he calls a professional Dom to sell something. This story ends with the hint of disciplinary action from the supervisor.

This book includes stories that take place at work as well as at some after hour functions. In The Empire of Lust by Maxim Jakubowski is a story of longing for co-workers. This man in management thinks through his sexy staff and the result is a titillating expression of lust and the reason people watch porn at work. Secretary's Day by Rachel Kramer Bussel really did a good job of highlighting how sexy business and pleasure can be. In this story a man named Matthew is applying for the job of administrative assistant to a very demanding Ms. Davis who samples his skills of obedience.

TGIF by Saskia Walker was the most memorable for me. This story about is about a woman that hates her temp job at a lawyers office. She is distracted by a window washer and finds a reason to be excited about work. I think that is basically what this book is meant to do, get thinking about how sexy the workplace can be. This book exploits the ideas of sleeping your way to the top, finding inspiration in a co-worker, and ogling over your staff.

I have to admit that I was hoping more for office sex. I was delightfully surprised by the stories that I highlighted, but very disappointed by some others. There were quite a few stories that took place outside of the workplace that were very well written but didn't go with the theme as I imagined it
HASH(0x9d19b9d8) out of 5 stars Boring cubicles? I don't think so! Aug. 4 2010
By Aurora Hunter - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Open for Business is one of my favorite erotica anthologies. As a 7 year veteran of working in cubicle land, I know I've definitely passed the time admiring some adjacent eye candy.

The collection starts strong with That Monday Morning Feeling by Lisette Ashton. I feel like the main character, Mandy, is reclaiming her personal power through her sexuality, that the dull, uniform work week drains from her. The part on the bus is steamy, intimate yet seemingly innocent contact with a complete stranger.

Xavier Acton delivers for me again in "This Call May Be Monitored for Quality Assurance." (I also really liked his story in Hurts So Good, another Alison Tyler edited collection) This guy is an incredible writer, because he makes things that are not turn-ons for me at all into must reads. It's amazing that a tale with no nudity and no penetration could be this erotic.

Other highlights for me were the contributions from CB Potts, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Savannah Stephens Smith, Shelly Jansen, Saskia Walker and NT Morley. I also liked the Nikki Magennis piece that ended the collection, which was interesting in itself as Nikki's piece usually comes early in an Alison Tyler collection, and helps set the tone. In Open For Business, her piece, Rat Race, nicely sums everything up. Take the time you can to steal a moment with someone who makes your knees go weak and your heart beat faster. Work can wait.

This collection will have a strong appeal for anyone who's ever worked in a corporate setting, by choice or by necessity. You will never think about the copier, the board room, or the water cooler the same way again.
