This is a surprisingly diverse collection. It features women with the large breasts, butt and hips that I expected going in, but it also features women whose largeness manifests in less expected ways, like strongly muscled legs; there are stories of trysts between near-strangers, between people in heterosexual or homosexual monogamous relationships, and one featuring a polyamorous triad; the characters are mostly white but there are few interracial couples and couples where both partners are non-white; and while most of the sex is vanilla there are a few kinky stories involving BDSM and voyeurism. All that variety is in some ways a mixed blessing: on the one hand, at least one story is sure to please any reader; on the other hand, I'm pretty sure every reader will encounter some stories that are complete misses. Unfortunately for me, Bussel placed most of my favorites toward the beginning of the anthology and all of the ones I disliked at the end, causing me to end up liking the anthology as a whole less than I think I would have had it been organized differently. Still, the quality of the prose was consistently good, resulting in an eminently readable, decidedly sexy anthology that I'd certainly recommend.
