I'd never really thought about it before, but I suppose one would more often see "two people meet" stories in erotica rather than stories about established couples. Funny how a common state of existence can suddenly seem so novel. Irresistible focuses mainly on heterosexual, monogamous couples, but the results are far from boring, and other sexual variances make their way into fray. The writing is mostly strong, and most every story is satisfying.

I was introduced to sixteen new authors in this anthology. The tales included here have something for everyone. I can’t say I loved everyone one but I can honestly say there was not one that I would say I didn’t like. I am sure when you read it you will pick your own favorites, if you like erotica there is something for everyone to enjoy here. I will tell you that contained in these pages are authors I will

This book is a series of smexy little reads. Some of them were really hot and others only made it to lukewarm. I don't mind quick hot reads, I have just come to a place I prefer a story around my steam. This is great for somebody who is looking for the steam alone. Each story has a little set-up, but the sex is more the point than an in-depth story.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Avery Wolf and a host of other voices. It has more of

This is a collection of erotic stories involving couples.

I have to say these stories were sexy and even exciting. Some story lines for me were ok and others were more than I expected as they were experiencing something new. Even with the stories that were ok, physically the book was a turn on. I definitely think there is a little something for readers and find myself fantasizing as well.

Storyline; FAIRLY GOOD

It was refreshing reading an erotica anthology with established couples! As with any anthology, it was a mixed bag, though some I really enjoyed, so it was overall alright.
