Take a walk on the wild side with a serving of kink: restraints, blindfolds, spankings, threesomes, and more—just a taste of danger to whet your appetite. But these games are meant to do more than just tease.

Every story in here is better than good and nearly all of them are great. The two I mention here, Maximum Exposure and All Kinds of Attention I would give more than 5 stars if I could.

FS & ML have another installment for Sebastian and Angel. Yum. They are taking another step forward in their new relationship and it is emotionally satisfying and HOT. Not many authors could make such a vain and self-absorbed main character seem so endearing.

I really enjoyed them all but All Kinds of Attentio

Like many anthologies, there were great stories in this book and several that left me scratching my head and trying to figure out what the author(s) were thinking. All in all though, the good far outweighed the bad and I would certainly recommend it.

Is there any good book about hardcore masochist who indulge all depraved stuff with his utterly sadistic partner without any love dove trash? Is there? Definitely is...but sadly not in this book. Authors tried hard...but had not guts to finish it and I think readers demand happy fluffy couples with whips.
The book is anthology of short stories, which are running around SM themes.

I really loved this anthology! It’s got a great assortment of short stories dealing with various levels of BDSM depth – a little something for everyone!! I enjoyed every single story, but my favorite was probably “All Kinds of Attention” – the connection between these characters and Tom’s uncanny ability to read exactly what Troy needed just gave me the very best kind of tingles. Don’t miss this treasure :)

The book has many short stories in one book. Some are ok and some are fantastic. It is a good book if you need something that you can read quickly in one sitting and then read another story at another time. Some of the stories seem to be a good start for a longer story. Some seem to be a short story from another longer book.

I've said it before, I love anthologies. Getting to know new authors, reading some good short stories. The only issue I have with this book is that there are several stories I wish were expanded because I would LOVE to learn more about the characters involved.

Special mention: All Kinds of Attention b J. J. Brues LOVED IT!!!

Loving this anthology so far... I especially enjoy the ones where it's couples trying bondage for the first time and making some mistakes. Feels very true to life and reminds you things can be funny and awkward but still hot! Not that the intense club and dungeon scenes aren't scorching, too!

Lovely collection of BDSM stories and I enjoyed almost all of them. One in particular stood out for an emotional, feel-good read All Kinds of Attention by H. J. Brues - excellent!! So glad I finally took the time to read this anthology.

OMG I loved this! Si hot, so kinky, so hawwwt. I enjoyed every single story in the anthology. Some more than others, yes, but definitely all were awesome. Holy crap! This light(ish) BDSM play is just the sort of thing I enjoy reading (every once in a while).

I really loved this book. Each story had a little different twist, and a couple of them even had surprise endings. I'll definitely look for more books by the authors in this anthology.

What a fun book! Full of short BDSM stories - great for that quick read. A couple of the authors I was familiar with and I found a couple new ones I'm going to look for more from immediately.
