As I read the book, I kept thinking "This story's my favorite--no, this one," and eventually found it hard to even to choose one science fiction, one fantasy, and one "real world" piece to rank over the others. There are so many good ones. I did especially enjoy the futuristic "The Old Spies Club", the medieval fantasy "By the Winding Mere", the surreal--or is it?--"Emily Says", and the poignantly realistic "An Evening in Esteli". On my next reading, though, I could just as easily pick out others. CRAVE is definitely a book worth reading, and rereading.
This is a fun collection - her stories are more fulfilling than those you usually find in the category of erotica. They contain hot sex but there are thought provoking plots as well as interesting characters. I never felt that the plot was there just to hang sex scenes on, consequently each story is much hotter than a lot of the erotica out there.
This is a book dedicated to erotica. If the reader isn't interested in sex in all of its manifestations, including "kink," the book will have limited appeal. Like any anthology, the stories aren't uniform in quality. Some are well written and really don't need the sex scenes to make them interesting. Others obviously only exist to showcase various sexual activities and would have been as effective simply describing those actions and not worrying with trying to wrap stories around them. At some points the stories verge on being boring, but the well written ones are sprinkled in at appropriate intervals to counteract the effect. For readers who need a shot of adrenaline or who enjoy reading about sex, sex, and more sex, this is definitely the book. Those who are looking for more depth to their stories may want to keep looking
