How far would you go for love? This book exploits that question with 19 incredibly naughty tales of BDSM and devotion. Published by Cleis Press and edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel this book is steamy! The authors in this collaboration push the envelope with racy kinks and characters I can’t stop thinking about.

More then a few of the characters find themselves bound, more than that they are bound by their desire to please. The stories in Anything For You roll easy from story to story. This first s

See my review here: http://www.bittenbyparanormalromance....



A collection of shorts that give you and inside look of how BDSM and adventurous couples are. This is a sensual read with all different kinds of partners. You get a little bit of almost everything. Bondage, flogging, swingers, master/slave, topping from the bottom, f/f, f/f/m..and so on. It truly is a great book for couples on the kinkier side.

Rachel Kramer Bussel has gathered a stellar collection of stories here, and you're sure to find something that will light your fire.

Highlights -

Normal, by Charlotte Stein - This was my favorite story because it was just so different, so edgy, so dark, and delicious all at the same time. This one is told from a woman's perspective and describes a game she plays with her lover that begins with her putting two fingers to the back of his neck and saying, "If you move a muscle, I'll blow your fuckin

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

Anthologies for me are a wonderful way of testing the waters for undiscovered authors. It is like going somewhere for a drink and appetizers and enjoying the food so much you go back another time for a dinner date.

Anything for You was a very hard book for me to rate. I tried to keep a running rating in my head because some of the stories were really good and some were likeable, but not great. I really conn

Having read a number of RKB collections, I knew that this one would have quality writing and a good variety of scenarios. In this particular instance, I also knew these would be stories I could relate to. As expected, this collection did not disappoint. Obviously, you can’t expect highly-developed characters in stories that are maybe 10 pages long, at the most. But that’s not even a concern here. The scenarios are fairly realistic and believable, and things play out quickly but in a very satisfy ...more

This is a strong collection of erotic fiction focusing dominance and submission within established relationships. Standout stories include Charlotte Stein's "Normal", a peek at the strange games played by an apparently ordinary couple; "Interview", by Talon Rihai and Salome Wilde, a searingly honest alternation between the voices of a slave and his mistress; Teresa Noelle Roberts' "New Games on a Saturday Night", in which a jaded Dom discovers the delight of initiating a new sub; Ariel Graham's ...more

Recommended to Jillyn by: Rachel
Anything for You: Erotica for Kinky Couples is an anthology of nearly twenty erotic short stories. This collection is unique, in that it focuses on a very particular reader audience: couples. This book contains a story for everyone, and is sizzling hot from cover to cover, and on each page in between.

Four stars.

The thing that I adore about Rachel Kramer Bussel's anthologies is the amazing variation that she includes in each book. Anything For You is absolutely no exception to this. Within thi

Anything For You: Erotica for Kinky Couples is a book of 19 very good, believable, fun, erotic stories. A few of my favorites were: Everything She Wanted (M/f, married couple, attend play party), Petting Zoo (F/m, committed couple, play party, spanking, play with others), Lap It Up (F/f, puppy play), Teppanyaki (M/f, another couple joins, exhibitionism, humiliation), and I Tend to Her (M/f, when the slave is sick, her master nurses her to health).

There was an enjoyable mix of dynamics throughout

The problem is not that it's not erotic, it's that the tales are rarely interesting. Why does erotica always seem to be formulaic and rarely novel? It is one big cliche'...

The press release for Anything for You described the fictional anthology as a "guidebook to great sex," so I admittedly held it to a slightly higher standard as a collection intended to be shared with a partner and used for bedroom ideas. Like the last Cleis book I reviewed, this one focuses on kink in established relationships, but unlike that anthology, the first story of this one immediately drew me in. Lisabet Sarai offers a dominant male narrator who reveals uncertainty at returning to play ...more
