Don't bother!

If I could have rated this one zero stars I would have. This is the worst "erotica" I have heard on Audible. This doesn't even come close to "Penthouse - Between the Sheets".

The stories are lame and the readers are lame. There is much better fare available so I strongly suggest you avoid this one completely. However, I have to admit that I haven't listened to the entire book. Once I got to the story about the homosexual soldiers I had enough. Even the stories leading up to and surrounding the "erotica" in the book are BORING! Trust me - skip this one completely. The 5 star ratings must have been posted by the authors.

I'm a huge fan of Susie Bright, but I didn't enjoy this. Production-wise, I didn't like the fact that each new story started abruptly, actually before you realized that the last one was over. If there had been a longer silence, or preferably some music, it would have flowed better.
