Jonathan tries to assert himself to Jennifer so she will allow him to take part in a threesome in Lee Ash's "Tea for Three". In "Secret Desires" by Ellen Tevault, Henry secretly lives out his fantasy of serving Loretta but is fearful of scaring her off. Valerie's new husband can only watch as she seeks pleasure without him in Dominic Santi's "Wedding Night."
If I had to pick one favorite, it would be Rachel Kramer Bussel's "Secretary's Day". Matthew gets to live his fantasy by working for the powerful Ms. Davis, where he has to take care of office tasks and duties of a more "personal nature."
There are only a few that didn't do it for me. Some are incredibly hot while others are just enough to get me going. With such a nice selection, there is bound to be a good amount of material to enjoy for people who like the theme.
The book's cover hints at what's inside, and what's inside is H-O-T hot! This book is a companion piece to Yes, Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission, and together they include almost every possible combination of kink. Delicious!
The back cover says, "'Yes, Ma'am' shows that pleasure's best when dispensed by a firm female hand." That's the beginning of this sexy anthology: Don't miss D. L. King's "A Different Kind of Reality Show," a bizarre fantasy-fulfillment for a New Jersey CPA, now known as "Pretty" to a group of cruel women who torment him in unusual and delightful ways.
Stephen Elliott's "It's Cold Outside" rang delightfully and erotically true, and made me gasp as I recognized some of the players. Well done, Mr. Elliott, well done.
Sylvane Alistair's "An Invitation to the Dance" lingered in my mind long after I'd finished the book. A deeply sexy look at female dominance and male submission, in the truest sense of the words. Don't miss it!
Another winner is Andrea Dale's "His Lady's Manservant" a role-playing romp that starts one weekend and continues on indefinitely. A formerly submissive wife turns the tables on her husband at a weekend murder mystery get-away. Spicy!
All in all, another winner form the creative minds of the deviant authors who submit to Ms. Rachel Kramer Bussel. I have the two books together on my nightstand within reach when I've had a long day. Two thumbs up!
Most kink-related stories fail because the people who inhabit the stories end up as caricatures. In "Yes Ma'am," you will recognize these people as fully realized, flesh and blood characters - who live to inhabit the edge of sensuality.
1.) "Tea For Three" - Lee Ash: Jonathan, a sub, makes an assertive request of his domme (Jennifer), with flavorful results. Excellent, genre-true and -transcendant work.
2.) "A Different Kind of Reality Show" - D.L. King: A kinky reality show where a naked male is told what to do by unseen female viewers yields new personal dimensions - and goals - for its star.
The writing in this story is good; what distinguishes this story from the others is its setting and BDSM-newbie character dynamic.
3.) "Secretary's Day" - Rachel Kramer Bussel: Fun, clever romp of an office tale, about a secretary (Matthew Brick) whose new boss (Vanessa Davis) takes a disciplined and personal view of secretarial duties.
4.) "It's Cold Outside" - Stephen Elliott: While touring the West Coast states, a sex worker visits friends - a couple, Andre and Serena - the latter of whom alters the nature of their relationship.
This is one of my favorite stories in this mix. It's intriguing, and much more than the usual sex story bullstuff: it balances the real and the fantasized, and it reads better because of that.
5.) "An Invitation to the Dance" - Sylvane Alistair: An aspiring sub (Keith Trenton) for a particular domme (Joanna Persephone) applies for Joanna's educated affections.
This is another favorite tale, for its acknowledgement (and subsequent subversion) of BDSM trappings, its reader-hooking urgency and its overall excellence.
6.) "Sticking With You" - L.E. Bland: A tape fetishist sub, after a blown BDSM scene, tries to win back his Mistress' attentions.
7.) "i 1T u 2 do sumfin 4 me" - George Cross: Exemplary, comic-twisty work about a humiliation-bent sub who receives unfamiliar and terrifying commands in the form of text messages.
8.) "Taming the Unruly" - Debra Hyde: Sensory-intense, tautly-penned piece that ably balances the high-wire act writing is supposed to be: it provides action, accompanied by character-based motive and history, while recognizing and elevating its genre.
Again, one of the best works in this anthology.
9.) "The Big What" - Michael Hemmingson: Sub-genre straddling, off-beat, edgy, L.A.-flavored story that's simultaneously mainstream, erotic, funny and unpredictable with a brief nod at noir films.
This, also, is one of my favorite entries in this anthology. I wish I'd written this (perhaps the highest compliment I can offer a penned work).
10.) "Connection" - Kristina Wright: Sly, twist-punctuated story about a 'I cheated on you' telephone conversation that echoes many of the dynamics that made Jim Thompson's work so distinctive.
