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.
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.
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!

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.
