In general, Violet Blue's selection of stories for Sweet Dangers has something for everyone! Despite the wildly varying content throughout the collection that would sometimes lead us to the very edge of our comfort zone, we easily enjoyed almost all of these smoking hot offerings! As with any collection, some were more enjoyable than others, but for the most part, we found the entire experience incredibly arousing and satisfying. How does this happen? How is it that this audiobook can push just about every taboo button imaginable, but leave us smiling and turned-on at the end of each story? Well, there are actually TWO reasons for this.
First and foremost, Rose Caraway. For those of you not familiar with Rose's work as a writer and narrator at her incredibly sexy "The Kiss Me Quick's Podcast," you are in for a very sweet treat! Rose takes her work as a narrator very seriously, bringing about a tangible sense of empathy from her "lurid listeners" for all of her characters. Even during some of the particularly rough scenes in Sweet Dangers, you will discover a degree of safety and sanctuary in Rose's sexy-yet-intelligent bedroom voice, as she boldly guides you towards an ending you were probably not expecting. And at no point does Rose ever come off as the cheesy, air-headed seductress (unless called for, of course) as she smoothly and confidently guides you through this incredibly hot anthology. From the scenes requiring the lightest and loving of touches, to the darker, knife-edged scenes where the protagonists are kneeling on wet floors in dark places, Rose will guide you safely to each story's climax, and you will love her for it. Time and again you will "see" Rose become the characters in these stories . . . it's a pretty amazing thing to hear.
And of course there are the stories themselves to consider! Although there is a noticeable range of talent here, the most important commonality between them all is the ability of the writers to bring the ship safely back to shore after piloting us passengers through choppy and unpredictable waters -- probably the most important consideration considering the target demographic here (couples). Although we wanted some of the stories to continue, at no point did we as a listeners feel ripped off or or stranded by the work in Sweet Danger.
We could easily review each of the 20 stories here from memory, but doing so without giving away spoilers would be a tricky endeavor. These tales are guaranteed to titillate; they will probably generate discussion between you and your partner; they will scare you; they will thrill you; they will push buttons that you probably didn't know existed . . . but most importantly, they will turn you on. For couples beginning to explore their sexual boundaries through good fiction, we suggest starting off with "Dress Me Up" or "In the Back of Raquel" before moving on to the more intense fare such as "Old Friends" or "Cocked and Loaded." For those of you who have already enjoyed these stories in print form, please consider giving it another go with Rose Caraway as your co-pilot . . . you'll probably get a completely different experience.
If I had ONE suggestion for future collaborations of this kind, it would be for the inclusion of MUSIC. Regular listeners of Caraway's podcast have come to expect not only amazing performances from the narrator herself, but the addition of perfectly-timed music from some amazing artists that help drive the stories home. Just a little music would've taken this experience to a whole other level.
If there are any erotica-centric angels in heaven, I suspect that their voices would remind one of Rose Caraway. How else to explain her talent for narrating erotic audio books with a style that can entertain, arouse and enthrall almost every listener? And "Sweet Danger: Erotic Stories of Forbidden Desire for Couples" will truly entertain, arouse and enthrall almost anyone looking for quality audio erotica.
Rose narrates these 20 short stories by Violet Blue with a voice that easily works its way into the pleasure centers of your head and thrills you with encounters and scenes that you might not have ever anticipated being thrilled by. I mean it... if you're not willing to expand your sensual horizons, maybe this isn't for you. But if you are... even a little bit... willing to stretch your mind, you will be seriously rewarded. You may even discover a few sexy nooks and crannies in your sexual imagination that you didn't know existed.
I think that many readers/listeners of erotica have been conditioned into the belief that "couples" stories are a little tame in the general scheme of things. That's not the case with Ms. Blue's stories here, every one has a delightfully kinky edge to it. But the common thread here does involve couples... committed couples... couples in love... couples in lust. I won't describe the individual storylines, that would require too much space and honestly, I wouldn't want to turn anyone off with a too brief description of some seriously complex and uber-sexy plots.
For me to enjoy quality erotica, it has to have story and characters first; and a healthy sexual premise. I can read or listen to erotica that I would deem worthy of being "quality" whether I find the particular encounter or premise sexually appealing to me or not. Okay, I found more appealing stories here than even my open mind was prepared to accept. Do I want to go out and recreate them with my wonderful wife? That's a question I'll coyly refuse to answer. But make no mistake about it. This is quality erotic fiction, and audio narration at its absolute best!
Thank you Rose! Were I single (and 20 or 30 years younger), I would try and court the living daylights out of you. Since that is not the case, I'll simply make do with periodic enjoyment of your Kiss Me Quicks series and any audiobooks that are fortunate enough to be performed by you. You're a treasure that I hope many, many fans of audio (and written) erotica get to experience.
