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)

Definitely pushes the envelope

The stories in this collection attempt to go beyond the standard Tab A/Slot B clinical porn which too often gets classified as "erotic." Although not all the stories were to my taste, and indeed there were a couple I didn't finish listening to, I applaud the authors and Ms. Bright for attempting to raise the genre to the level of art.

I wish I had read the reviews first!

I am afraid I am with the others before me, this one is not worthy... I'll admit that I didn't make it all the way through, but at better than 75% it was obvious to me that it was not quality writing and it couldn't be salvaged in the last few stories ... Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere!
