Never Say Never is definitely not what I was expecting it to be when I picked it up, but that's not at all a bad thing. This book uses fiction to take sex tips and advice to the next step, giving the reader a glimmering temptation of what desires and fantasies can be theirs if they dare to take that step.

Each chapter within Never Say Never takes a specific kink or fantasy element, like role-playing or spanking, and takes an in depth look. Tyler includes teasing little excerpts of her favorite st

I had no preconceived ideas of what this book was about and just as I would when I take a trip to my local Barnes and Noble, I read the title and the back page blur as my first introduction.

What that blurb told me was that this: Monogamy does not have to be monotony! So with my expectations peeked I settled down and is my custom began to read and soon discovered this was anything but your average sex help book.

This book will take you on a journey of discovery and is likely like any other erotic

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

Regardless of whether you call it a guide or an erotic collection, author Alison Tyler has created a fantastic source of inspiration.

In Never Say Never: Tips, Tricks, and Erotic Inspiration for Lovers, she has put together an anthology of 16 stories. I’ve read more than a few self-help books, but I can say this one kept my attention from start to finish.

As a fan of Alison Tyler’s previous boo

A sex book that Tyler arranges by topic from the more common (fellatio) to less (menage) with a little advice and a lot of fiction to inspire couples to try something new. The tone of each chapter overview is comforting, like a coach giving a pep talk, followed by short stories that sizzle and give you a feel for each move.

I like how she gives snippets of different stories to show the different flavors for any specific kink, followed by one full story, but sometimes the "full" story paled in com

Want to read something really inspiring? This book will motivate you to try something new. Whether you are in a monogamous relationship that has hit or snag or you love life is porn worthy, this book has something for you. This book offers real tips and tricks without giving you step by step instructions. It inspires instead.
This book is so refreshing. It really encourages by including snippets of juicy scenes. I had to stop reading more than once to take care of business. Alison really knows ho

M (RAIN CITY READS)
Never Say Never is a saucy collection of erotic tales, each with a focus on a different type of fetish. It covers every kind of erotic fascination from voyeurism to sensory deprivation to spanking and light bondage. Each section is introduced by Alison Tyler, whose exploration of the topic and snippets from her own stories expertly tickle the reader's fancy in the best possible way.

The book is organized into a particular fetish or fantasy per chapter: voyeurism, exhibitionism, blindfolds, role-p

At some point, every couple is going to want to explore (or further explore) kinky adventures...but maybe they're not sure how to do it. Or, they need more options. Great news: this book is the answer! Blending clever commentary and hot fiction together, Alison Tyler has created a smash hit of a guide. Each chapter focuses on a particular topic—voyeurism, spanking, fellatio, pegging, etc.—that is introduced through brilliant commentary, tips, and story snippets, then leads into a full-length sto ...more

A copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher for an honest review at Night Owl Reviews.

Review Excerpt:

As with most Cleis Press anthologies, the stories featured within NEVER SAY NEVER are uniformly entertaining and perfectly chosen to represent their individual topics. Those that were especially effective for me tended to explore less obvious ways to highlight their assigned topic. Charlotte Stein’s “Allowed” showed how being deprived of the one thing you want makes it the one thing y
