The right kind of punishment can be a powerful turn on. Restraint can release hidden desires. A simple leather strap, a shiny pair of handcuffs, a delicate silk scarf, a dominant’s stern gaze. The yearning for a partner who will take control can grip one as powerfully as the most intricate, indecipherable rope knot. In Slave to Love, Alison Tyler gathers the most popular — ...more

Short stories that promise much but don't deliver enough. Kept me hanging. The stories weren't bad, I just wish there was more to it. It's like a bloody cock tease.

Watching Lois perform, Under My Thumb, Unlike the Others, Daddy's Girl, Ever on Edge, and Five Bucks a Swat were my favorite.

I'm normally not a fan of anthologies. I enjoyed this one though. There's a little something for everyone... M-M, F-F, M-F, pet play, bondage, piercing, spanking, and cheating to name a few. Some of the stories are happy and some were a little sad. I'll post a few of my favorites when I have a bit more time. :)
Three stars is being generous. Maybe two or three stories were four-star reads with any sort of depth to them - the femdom marriage-in-peril story the best of the bunch - most were just kinda meh stroke fiction with better spelling and grammar than Literotica and one terrible story had a single paragraph that filled an entire page.

I'm not really sure the good stories made this anthology worthwhile. It was mostly forgettable.
