HASH(0xa51a19c0) out of 5 stars Brilliant Concept, Marvelous Stories Oct. 8 2009
By Erotic Elf - Published on
Format: Paperback
As an avid erotica reader, it's always interesting to me to see what new concepts will be tapped by anthology editors. And in Where the Girls Are, I think we see a brilliantly conceived theme: lesbian encounters that generally highlight the dynamics between an urbanite who is on her own turf and a protagonist who is (literally or metaphorically) more of an outsider.

The stories selected by editor D. L. King, written by justly renowned authors such as Jacqueline Applebee, Kathleen Bradean, Rachel Kramer Bussel, and Sommer Marsden, comprise a thought-provoking, complex, and erogenously potent offering of impeccably crafted, character-driven gems. From the heat of Crystal Barela's emotionally raw "In the Dressing Room," to the quirky and riveting "Afraid of Jumping" by Nan Andrews, to Lisabet Sarai's passionate narrative of a momentous chance encounter ("Rush Hour"), to the perfectly paced and lusciously detailed story of seduction that is Sophie Mouette's "On Display" ... this is a book to savor.

HASH(0xa519ddec) out of 5 stars Steamy, hot city lovin' Nov. 10 2009
By Beth Wylde - Published on
Format: Paperback
No matter whether it's your first visit to the big city or you've been living there for fifty years, 'Where the Girls Are' has something for everyone. Lover's of lesbian fiction will find plenty of action between these pages to WET their appetite. From the newcomer fresh off the bus to the seasoned city chick, the innocent to the well educated this book held my attention from the very beginning. DL King has a definite hit on her hands.
My favorite story had to be Cari Z's 'Not in Kansas Anymore' A dramatic twist on the dramatic 'sex in costume' theme. It made me want to get all dressed up and go looking for some fun of my own. So for those of you who love great settings, a fast pace and plenty of heat, hurry up and get a copy of 'Where the Girls Are' today.

HASH(0xa51c0768) out of 5 stars Something for everyone! Nov. 1 2009
By ICanRead - Published on
Format: Paperback
Another successful anthology of women's erotica! "Where the Girls Are" offers a variety of tales, catering to several different types of erotica, from a steamy encounter with a stranger during a trip to London ("Old London Town", Jacqueline Applebee) to the more edgy story of a young woman's infatuation for a dominating Mistress ("A is for Apple" by Jessica Lennox).

Although I enjoyed several of the selections, my two favorites were "Electricity" by Evan Mora, and "Come to my Window" by Andrea Dale. I particularly enjoyed the chemistry between characters!

HASH(0xa51c2318) out of 5 stars Super Sexy Jan. 28 2016
By Ameliah Faith - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Where the Girls are is a very erotic anthology featuring nineteen wonderful stories by nineteen amazing writers.

There were too many tales for me to read at one sitting. I just couldn't handle all that sexy goodness all at once. It took me several days but they made great bedtime stories. Some of these shorts were sweet and gentle with a hint of romance, such as Sophie Mouette's On Display. A young black museum employee sets up a display of lesbian erotic photos. There is a private showing where the older silver haired white woman seduces the curator. I mention race because the story does. The visual of dark with light adds to the eroticism.

The majority of the stories involved Power Play or BDSM. For Power Play look no further than Urban Fantasy by A.D.R. Forte. This is a story of a woman who bumps into another woman and can not get the blue eyed stranger out of her mind. When she finally finds Blue Eyes she takes her home where they get to know each other....
For light BDSM try Rachel Kramer Bussel's My first Play Party. A woman moves to San Francisco to attend school. There she meets a Domme. The Domme takes her to a party where she is touched my many but only taken by her Domme. They end up as a couple so there is BDSM and romance in this one.
A is for Apple by Jessica Lennox is a more erotic and stronger BDSM tale. Here country mouse, Hailey, moves to the city and sees bartender Ciara. She is smitten and determined to get Ciara to notice her. Ciara does and takes her home to her dungeon. There Hailey is given a simple task while she is tied to a spanking bench. Name a fruit or veggie that starts with each letter of the alphabet or be punished. That punishment is WAY too hot!

There are so many good stories that it is hard to pick a favourite. I dare you to find just one.
