These stories are so well written and the characters are all so interesting, just like Susie says in the intro you don't even want to skip ahead for the juicy, sexy details. And I enjoyed almost every single story.

Not my erotica

Unfortunately I downloaded the wrong genre of erotic fiction however there where some short stories that stirred an emotion. Even though it was the wrong genre I still wanted to finish the book
