I loved this collection.

I reviewed this for Erotica Revealed - it'll be up in the October Reviews. The site is here: http://www.eroticarevealed.com/

I’m going to let the cat out of the bag right off and say that, with Sex and Love, I.J. Miller has written some of the best literary erotica I’ve yet to come across.

For me, character and narrative are king (and queen) of my enjoyment of a short story. In Miller’s collection, almost every story has a captivating character (or two) and a narrative that

My initial impression is that these short stories remind me a little bit of Joan Didion, as though these are the stories she would have written if she were a man, lost and a little forlorn at the apex of middle age, and wrote about sex instead of shopping malls or migraines or political campaigns. Instead of her classic neurosis, there is a wry humor, slightly self-deprecating, that is just as endearing to me.

These are not bad first impressions to have.

Update: the proper review

I’ll start with t

Okay, first I have to reveal that I won this book through First Reads. I entered the contest on a whim. I usually only sign up for books in the genre that I typically read. But, I decided to start signing up for things that piqued my interest, but were not the type of thing that I normally read. Thus - Sex and Love.

I have never read anything quite like this book. A few other novels with fairly graphic erotic scenes in them, but nothing that was written with that as the main topic. I was a littl

I won a copy of Love and Sex through First Reads. I enjoy short stories and entered the giveaway based on the description of the book.

I found some of the stories to be interesting and some not so much so. The characters are average people in everyday situations, the stories fairly simple and the erotic scenes are just right. (No hooking up of the living and undead, human and shape shifters in the Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance that so many of my friends are reading.)

It was a fairly quick read

Won this via firstreads. Description sounded interesting but unfortunately most of the book didn't interest ME that much. Guess its just not my kind of genre. Now i know.. I found a few of the stories & characters were well constructed & even surprisingly funny at times. I also appreciated the psychology the writer exhibited behind many of the characters. It's for this reason that I gave the book 3 stars.

These short stories are great. Funny, sexy, risque. Easy to read a story in one sitting. This is the first book I have won and I had a great time reading it. Thanks

I have published five literary works of erotic fiction: the novels SEESAW and WHIPPED, the novella CLIMBING THE STAIRS, the short story collection SEX AND LOVE. I have been translated into German and Spanish. WUTHERING NIGHTS, an erotic retelling of Emily Bronte's WUTHERING HEIGHTS, is out in e-book, trade paperback, and audio book.

Any erotic material is always there to enhance the story, develop
