Just by looking at the cover I know I want to read this book and the discription blew me away. I haven't read a book yet about disabilities. I would love to read this, I have grown up with a brother that is legally blind. And he is such a talent young man and he doesn't let it stop him from living his life he is in college and working. I so look up to my little brother and I think these stories are great and hopefully i can win a copy and start reading cause i bet it is a book that cannot be put ...more

*THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS*
Usually when I read an anthology I only read the story of the author I know and that's it. This time, however, I read the whole book. I intrigued by the theme of the book-- the leading characters were all in wheelchairs, it was unlike any book I've ever read before.
I enjoyed the first story "Bad Hotel Art" alot, it was one of my favorites from the book. It had a funny real-life kind humor to it. I also liked how I got to see the perspective from both Abott and Oph

This book was my brain-child that I approached the newly forming Good Mourning Publishing with, and it was selected as the publisher's first release! I'd like to thank them, the editor Amber Dearinger, and all the other authors involved

The idea for this book came after numerous discussions about how disabled people, mainly people in wheelchairs, were depicted in fiction. No one was happy with it. I was dedicated to the idea of a romance anthology based on this type of character written by writer

I really enjoyed Accessible Love Stories. Each story features a character in a wheelchair, and whether gay or straight, their stories of love are honest, real, and human. Each author gives us a glimpse into her/his world, into a new perspective, and into a unique, thought-provoking story.

Already a fan of Christy Leigh Stewart's, I was swept up by the tale she wove in "Bad Hotel Art". Her writing always makes me smile. Another favorite story was "Meet Cutie" by D.C. Graham. I not only enjoyed the

Accessible Love Stories (Christy Leigh Stewart)

A very original well written thought provoking read. I am a big fan of Christy Leigh Stewart, so when I saw this book I knew I had to read it. I was not disappointed. This is a book of short (love) stories told through the voices of disabled people, with emotions and feelings. It brought knowledge to the reader of a little bit of what it feels like to live life in a wheel chair. It shows the reader that "disabled" people are just regular people, not

This is a compilation of various stories containing protagonists that are disabled. I only read one of the stories in this compilation; "Fire on Babylon". I was hoping to see how the author portrayed a relationship with a disabled person, knowing that it involves a plethora of emotions deeper than most can fathom. The story seemed to just scratch the surface for me. It didn't really explore the feelings of guilt and inadequacy etc that often have the disabled often pushing others away. AND, at t ...more

(I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads)

This was a book of short stories that was a quick and easy read. Easy in that it did not take long to finish the book, not so easy as only one author intrigued me. Five of the six short stories made a quick read seem to last forever. Of the six authors, Christy Leigh Stewart's story was the only one that kept my attention. Her writing made me feel for the characters and enjoy the time I spent reading. In fact, were she to take this sh

At last

Finally someone is willing to allow the thought that people with disabilities still have sexual needs. Although the scope is limited to just wheelchair users... the author still manages to at least address the spectrum of human sexuality... and does so with style

I couldn't get over the miraculously walking after years in the chair story.

This is a serious topic and fairy-tales are a slap in the face to those who face these challenges every day.
