What the Critics Say

"[Susie Bright is] the avatar of American erotica." (The New York Times)
"I'm sure the stories would read brilliantly from the page, but I dramatically prefer to have BAE the audiobook poured into my ear in narrative form....[H]earing these stories spoken infuses them with something tangibily more personal, thus more captivating. And more alluring." (The Geek Prospectus blog)

I don't understand how Susie Brights work ever got so popular. The stories are boring, and in no way erotica. Don't waste your money, buy penthouse forms, even the NY times sport section is more titillating than these.

All the same stories

I wish the reviews and description of this book had mentioned that approx. 90% of the stories in it were of a lesbian nature. I would have appreciated a more balanced mix of stories. Will not purchase again.
