Shelves: erotic, poetry
This is a really quite extraordinary collection of poems. The language is explicit and erotic, pornographic and poetic,... There's a line in the Preface that describes the character of the poet evoked by the poetry:

From Pink Bows to Red Stilettos proves that a woman's sexual provocative nature is nothing to take lightly and that a sweet little girl can grow up to have a burning tigress nature.

Yes, these poems were written by a burning tigress. Xia's poetry is raw and wild. (And beautiful - read

I received this book, free, in a Goodread's First Read's Giveaway. Thank you and thank you too Ms. Devore! Wow! These sizzling poems are raw, erotic and explicit! "HOSTAGE" is my favorite! The musical metaphors of some of the other poems are quite exquisite. Some made me laugh out loud while others rendered me speechless! Please be forewarned, these poems are not for the faint-hearted! Nicely Done! ...more

Some of the poetry in this book was very interesting and some, regardless of the absolutely mature subject matter, seemed more elementary and formulaic. There were several grammatical/spelling errors, which is distracting if you are a reader who is bothered by that. The poetry is raw, frank, brash, and unapologetic and that makes it very refreshing. Don't read if you offend easily. ...more

This is a book of contemporary erotic poetry and my favorite was the first entry, "Deep Roots, Spicy Life." I love all things New Orleans and this poem sums up the sultriness of the entire book. A great item for couples to read together. ...more

Features 25 free-style poems that compare physical relations to sailing, cooking, and music. topics include cheating, a three-some, and self pleasure. Some swearing. Insightful. Possible foreplay.
