Review: Best Women’s Erotica of the Year Vol. 1 by Rachel Bussel

best women's erotcaBest Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 1 delivers risky, romantic, heart-pounding thrills. Joyful, daring, and authentic, these steamy stories revel in erotic adventure, from the sparks between strangers to the knowing caresses of longtime lovers. These stories are not merely erotic but filled with strong characters and clever narratives showing how sexual experience is different for everyone. This anthology is a glorious celebration of the finest and friskiest female erotic fiction today.

The great thing anthologies is that you get the opportunity to read some of your favorite authors, while discovering new ones in the process. When I was first asked to review this book, I was super excited because it features one of my favorite erotica writers, Tiffany Reisz. But this amazing book is filled with so many great pieces of erotica I’m not sure I could really pick a favorite. So many people associate erotica with oversexualized kinky people, but they don’t realize that it truly encompasses the entire spectrum of human sexuality. It’s also assumed that because a story has kink to it, it couldn’t possibly be about real love. But that’s not true and there are several stories in this anthology that prove it.

I think Rachel did a phenomenal job compiling together all of these stories. Each one is great as a stand alone and yet, all of them work well in this book. The other great thing with a book like this is that you can find a little of everything for everyone. From loving couples who enjoy trying to spice their relationship up with a “date” night, to a leadership building excursion that turns hot and kinky, you are bound to find at least one (though I assume it will be more) story to enjoy. After all, there’s nothing wrong with adding some spice and kink to your romantic life, right?

I would definitely recommend this book as a must read and I look forward to seeing how many of you enjoyed it as much as I did.
